ALBUM REVIEW: Mountain Man – Magic Ship

For years they hid from us. Like the hermetic enigma their name conjures, Mountain Man headed for the hills after releasing their hypnotic 2010 debut, Made the Harbor. The siren-like harmonies of Molly Erin Sarle, Alexandra Sauser-Monnig and Amilia Meath faded into the mist; Meath resurfaced four years later as one half of Sylvan Esso, bringing folksy [...]

VIDEO OF THE WEEK: Twin Shadow “Saturdays” & More

 When Twin Shadow released his album Caer in April of this year, it brought a sense of relief to fans - not only did it signify recovery from his bands' catastrophic tour bus crash, the music felt like a return to form. His first two records, 2010 debut Forget and its 2012 follow-up Confess, [...]

VIDEO OF THE WEEK: Gurr “Hot Summer” & More

My summers memories are always decorated with a particular kind of texture - the lingering feeling of grass cuts along my legs, the sting of sunburnt shoulders beneath a backpack full of empty rosé bottles, the soft and smooth goo of half melted ice cream on my tongue, skin sticky with sweat but refreshed with a [...]
