She’s not trying to stalk him. She just doesn’t know how to say hello. He always arrives just before the first bell, dashing in to his locker by the band room. And Chelsea always slips to the water fountain, right at 7:55, just for a little glimpse. Someone’s usually there at the lockers waiting for […]

SOTD #707 – Antlered Aunt Lord

Photo by Brigette Adair Herron Antlered Auntlord. Antlord Aunt Lard, Aunt Lured Antlered. With every encounter, you faced a different creature. The first time I met some Antlords in Athens, they were a trio, and they set up right in front of us, no need for a stage – Brent with the heavy metal drum […]

SOTD #706 – Mats Gustafsson

I read in a review lately that good art should not leave the audience wondering – “how did he/she do that?” Rather, they should walk away thinking – “I want to do this.” I’ve also been reading a book on Dada, and wrapping my head around the difference between anti-art – like the Zurich contingency […]

Back in high school, I kept a log of my dreams. Nothing fancy, really – under each entry, I noted the people that appeared, and the events that occurred, and then an explanation for why I thought those events and people materialized. My initial goal was to sound out my subconsciousness – why did this […]

SOTD #704 – The Migrant

Photo by Mads Hartmann The Migrant is pretty much this one dude Bjarke Bentsen from Denmark hiding under a band name that trades in super chill vibes all around with songs that kinda stay mid tempo and float in this spot between British folk-psych and Americana while never fully latching on to one or the […]

SOTD #703 – The Drones

With apologies. We, the Australian people, deserve better. The power struggle in the Liberal party, the blistering hot days, the deadly animals that inhabit the bulk of the country – we deserve a new start. A fresh start. That starts with a new Australian Anthem. Let’s be honest; the current National Anthem, ‘Advance Australia Fair,’ isn’t very […]

SOTD #702 – Thee Koukouvaya

People can disappear behind their creations. I used to – all day long, I’d run a story in my head, and act out the dialogue under my breath. Long walks shifted into expeditions to far away kingdoms and alternate dimensions; the playground transformed into an alien planet; my mom’s bed (never mine) was a prime […]

EEEEEEEEEEE. Can I throw myself at you? Where can I buy the magazines with your lovely selves pouting on the covers, with the juicy tell-all interviews inside? How else can I devour you? Seconds / JOYA Split LP by Seconds Seconds, they call themselves. Not the unit of time, but as in the serving after […]

Russell’s voice from the right speaker. Alex’s voice from the left. Welcome to the next level. Collaborations don’t work/They don’t work/they don’t work. I don’t like films about film. I don’t like songs about songs. I love this. It’s arch and affectionate like my last cat Carla. It’s slinky like my first cat Slinky.  It’s […]

I can’t deny it. I was put off by the fact they won the Mercury. Another alt-j, another M-People, another James Blake, another Gomez, another Elbow, another Klaxons, another Arctic Monkeys… that’s just what we need. Plus, a whole bunch of paid-for music critics rate ’em. (If you’re not aware that all paid-for music critics operate […]
