Just fine and fucking strange sampledelic music.

Birth of an Abomination – Beck and the Ironic Persona

Birth of an Abomination – Beck and the Ironic Persona

Beck clones were everywhere and in their wake they rendered passionate feeling an embarrassing personality trait.

Odd Future and a Brave New World

Odd Future is not a feminist issue. Odd Future is a societal issue.

R.I.P. Gil Scott-Heron 1949-2011

Don’t allow Scott-Heron’s expansive genius to be whittled down to who it influenced. Instead, approach it as necessary in its own right.


REVIEWED INTERNATIONALLY: Beastie Boys – Hot Sauce Committee Part Two (Capitol)

“I take sucker rappers, I put ’em through a strainer like macaroni ’cause the shit sound cheesy”

Nicki Minaj – Barbie’s Back (mixtape)

One of the biggest things I struggle with regarding hip hop is lyrical content. A pervasive preoccupation with self-aggrandisement does little for me given the typical scope of a rapper’s goals (money, fame and ‘bitchez’).

REVIEWED LOCALLY: Beastie Boys – Hot Sauce Committee Part Two (Capitol)

I guess the debate here is whether or not a band is required to continue attempting to evolve past a certain point. Beastie Boys have a solid formula with beats + one-liners = fun, so why should they change?

Odd Future and sexism etc

Many men still feel that endless misogynistic ‘jokes’ are ultimately harmless and that everyone should just get a sense of humour.

Australian Beats EP Reviews Pt 1: Blunt Instrument’s ‘Twice Baked’

Over the past three months, there has been an influx of EPs from quality Australian dance producers – especially the Brisbane sector. In recognition of this fact, I have chosen to do a review series focussing on the three most interesting releases. First, ‘Twice Baked’ by Brisbane breaks/glitch-hop two-piece Blunt Instrument.
