[Interview] Probably More Than Seven Questions With Ugly Hussy

[Interview] Probably More Than Seven Questions With Ugly Hussy

PHOTO by BEN LINDBLOOM, WORDS arranged by CATIE YOUNG. We had a chance to talk with the man behind Ugly Hussy (umm, so to speak …) at Treefort this year. He makes expansive guitar loops that sound exactly how Idaho looks. But he’s not from Idaho. And he’s more than...

Treefort Music Fest 2014 // Sunday Recap

 Eric Gilbert and the Treefort council addressed an important issue from previous years – dwindling attendance on the last day of the festival.

March 2014 Favorites

Another month gone by. Another month of music new and old. Another month of not updating the format of these month end lists. Another month with a Soundcloud playlist featuring most of, but not all the songs. Another month closer to death. Just kidding, another month closer to summmaa! Alina...

Treefort Music Fest 2014 // Saturday Recap

Saturday of Treefort 2014 arrived with a well-seasoned befuddlement, a piercing and oscillating sensation between the ears, and a difficult to reach 2PM “wake-up-call.” PHOTOGRAPHY by BEN LINDBLOOM and TRAVIS GILLETT.   The Main Stage // The Grizzled Mighty from Seattle     El Korah Shrine // Mr. Gnome from Cleveland     El Korah...

Treefort Music Fest 2014 // Friday Recap

Nothing quite compares to Treefort Music Fest. I may boycott all music /music festivals until I come back to Boise next year, for Treefort. The only thing I can find Catie’s thorough overview to be missing, is that it’s the only time you can drink for three days straight and not absolutely hate yourself at...

[Spotlight] Hyperbolic Opinion Fort: A Treefort 2014 Overview

Built to Spill / Photo by Ben Lindbloom As I re-enter the wholesome land of Kalefort and Exercisefort, I should be tired of putting fort at the end of whatever noun just happens along. I’m not. It’s true, this year there were a lot of forts at Treefort. Hackfort, Skatefort, Alefort, Yogafort, Kidfort, Storyfort. Some...

[Spotlight] Treefort 2014 – We Are Fucking So Excited You Guys

Treefort starts TOMORROW & you know how we love Treefort. We’ll be here, bringing you every moment (that we can remember). Here’s what we are biting our nails excited about (which means you should be excited about them too.): Catie: Bad90s / I fucking love horses. Chastity Belt / Hello. Frugal Father / How is...

February 2014 Music

A short month but no shortage of music. Unfortunately I didn’t devise a prettier way to make these month end posts, but you can listen to the Soundcloud playlist I made if you would like. It doesn’t have all the songs on it, but it’ll do in a pinch. Plus you don’t have to click...
[Song of the Day] BAD90s - "On The Way"

[Song of the Day] BAD90s – “On The Way”

BAD90s “On The Way” Newborn pop music from Boise, Idaho. Please join me in kicking this year’s strain of Seasonal Affective Disorder by listening to this seven million times in a row. – Catie  
[Song of the Day] Bombino - Amidinine

[Song of the Day] Bombino – Amidinine

Bombino “Amidinine” It’s old news. That being said, I’m old now — and I finally understand how those unfortunate souls above the age of 25 (roughly, the age of dirt) fall out of touch with what the whizzbangers and teen-boppers are listening to on their gramamamophones. Now, in my salt-and-pepper hair phase I’m finding myself...

January 2014 Music

I feel bad for how little I post on here. If I didn’t have a full time job and that whole life thing getting in my way, I would be doing write-ups all day every day. Unfortunately it’s relegated to my free time and has to compete with sleeping and socializing. I still try to...
[Song of the Day] Chastity Belt - "Seattle Party"

[Song of the Day] Chastity Belt – “Seattle Party”

Chastity Belt “Seattle Party” A few things: 1. This year I am turning over this new leaf that involves listening to and liking more lady vocalists. Chastity Belt is the first thing I have to report. Do yourself a favor & listen to their record, No Regerts, in its entirety. And you thought a giant...
DHM Concert Review 2013

DHM Concert Review 2013

So many people peg Seattleites as repressed or unfriendly, but I don’t think that’s true at all.  For me, the evidence is on display at a good concert, and I try to see as many as I can.  We have a passionate, informed musical culture here and the fans almost always give as much as...
Favorite Albums of 2013

Favorite Albums of 2013

An intro paragraph for a personal favorites list is kind of pointless since it always boils down to essentially saying “these were my favorite albums of the year due to experiences I had and my personal taste.” So instead I’m going to do a quick few intros as if I were making a list for...

Favorite EP’s of 2013

There’s not much to say here other than these were my personal favorite EP’s from 2013. With the ridiculous amounts of new music being released all the time, I’m sure I left off some good ones. Check back in the coming days for top album and song list’s that will feature several of these same...
