PREMIERE: Lauren Rocket “Rattlesnake”

Singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Lauren Rocket is the embodiment of the word "badass," and that's no clearer than in her latest single, "Rattlesnake." In the video for the fierce, beat-driven rebel anthem, we see Rocket dancing around the house, ravenously eating sweets, and posing in an "Anarchy" shirt while singing lyrics like, "I like the [...]

LIVE REVIEW: HARD Day of the Dead Festival Mixes EDM and Spirituality

On Saturday, October 26, I attended a San Pedro ceremony. With a group of fellow journeyers, I drank the extract of a psychedelic cactus sourced from Peru, danced around a circle to live music, shook rattles, played drums, lay down to focus on my own insights and visions, and had drug-induced heart-to-hearts with other participants. [...]

HIGH NOTES: An Acid Trip on a Third Date, in Music

Our first date was vegan food and a late night beach walk, our second was mushrooms, and our third, perhaps the richest with meaning, was acid. J had a few hits left over from a prior trip, which he was [...]

Seven Songs Celebrating the Female Orgasm

Female sexual pleasure doesn't get the attention it deserves, in the bedroom or in music. It's traditionally been more common for male artists to sing about what turns them on, but that's changing. With more and more female artists unabashedly singing about sex — and more male artists unashamed to admit they love pleasing women [...]

PREMIERE: PETRA “Just Stay”

LIVE REVIEW: Incubus @ Radio City Music Hall

Ten years ago, I saw Incubus at Radio City Music Hall. It was also 10 years after my favorite album of theirs, Make Yourself, came out. Though I first fell in love with the band back in high school, we'd grown apart since, and we rekindled our romance that summer, one-sided as it was. I'd [...]

HIGH NOTES: 7 Songs About MDMA, Because It’s MDMAzing

Madonna in an MDNA era shoot by fashion photographers Mert Alaş and Marcus Piggott. MDMA has long been closely intertwined with music.
