Charlie Moses - Francis

Our dear friend, Charlie Moses, has released a new record. It’s called Francis and while they call it “an eclectic 13-track hodgepodged mess,” I have to disagree. It is eclectic, but it’s far from a mess. Francis is a (and I don’t usually use these words but I mean it) soulful and mature work.

Goo Goo Pavement (Part 5)

Jonah smiled. “It’s already done Daniel. There’s nothing you or the eggs are gonna do about it.” Daniel leapt from the bed, towards Jonah, like a totally badass panther, like he was going to attack.

A high-end glamour-punk hair styling product? A food truck in Portland specializing in baby food? A bad acid flashback? A skateboard company or a tragically ill designed remote control airplane?

Meat Beat Manifesto - 99%

I have been listening to a ton of Meat Beat Manifesto lately. I have been listening to my iTunes, streaming from their Bandcamp page (I gotta buy the new album for sure) and listening to a MBM based Pandora station. D has been very patient with me.
