PREMIERE: Aaron Rice “Neverfade/For Dusk”

Photo by Ashley Camper Statues half hidden by rising tides, buildings sunk beneath desert sands, a post-apocalyptic fever dream... Aaron Rice's latest LP Neverfade/For Dusk has a '90s R&B familiarity, mixed with an otherworldly darkness all his own. The opening notes of "In Time" immediately call to mind scenes from Blade Runner; Harrison [...]

PREMIERE: Grizzly Coast “Half-Light Boy”

photo by Brendan Downey "Music as background to me becomes like a mosquito, an insect. In the studio we have big speakers, and to me that's the way music should be listened to. When I listen to music, I want to just listen to music," David Lynch told The Independent in 2013. Grizzly [...]
