[Photo Essay] Treefort 2015

Treefort has done it again. Although the Boise music festival is operating within the shade of a massive forest made up of much larger, more widely recognized trees, such as the well known Coachella, SXSW, or Pitchfork trees, they don’t seem to be in the same business of growing in areas like circumference,...

Favorite Albums of 2014

Favorite Albums of 2014

I wasn’t my best music loving self in 2014. I traded a good portion of my typical music listening time instead to audiobooks and podcasts. I can’t tell if I neglected music because I preferred other audio entertainments more, if I wasn’t that impressed by the years releases, or if I simply didn’t do as good...

Treefort Year Four  /  Exhaustion: An Ode

Treefort Year Four / Exhaustion: An Ode

Words by Catie Young  /  Photos by Ben Lindbloom Most major experiences happen to me in stages. Usually the progression looks something like this: anxiety –> stimulation –> exhaustion. Treefort 2015 was no exception to this rule. But instead of telling you about the stimulation portion like I usually do (You know Emily Wells is...
[Song of the Day] Big Scary - "Why Hip Hop Sucks in '13"

[Song of the Day] Big Scary – “Why Hip Hop Sucks in ’13”

BIG SCARY “WHY HIP HOP SUCKS IN ’13” Apparently this week is an Australian takeover. Day two goes to Melbourne duo Big Scary. The song I chose is off their 2013 release Not Art, although I recommend Twin River EP as well. Enjoy.
[Song of the Day] Unknown Mortal Orchestra - "Multi-Love"

[Song of the Day] Unknown Mortal Orchestra – “Multi-Love”

Unknown Mortal Orchestra “Multi-Love” “Multi-Love Checked into my heart and trashed it like a hotel room Who is your God? Where is she? She wants to bury me in Austin under Uchiko. She don’t want to be a man or a woman She wants to be your love” The song of the day today goes...
[Song of the Day] Maui - "Slide In"

[Song of the Day] Maui – “Slide In”

MAUI “SLIDE IN” You’d expect the sound to be some sort of tall can wielding,  lo-fi garage rock. Nothing wrong with that of course, but after listening to London four-piece, Maui‘s latest single “Slide In,” you get more of an Arctic Monkeys / Deerhunter vibe with drugged up, guitar laden melodies. Definitely worth a listen. Enjoy.
[Song of the Day] Cloud Control - Dojo Rising

[Song of the Day] Cloud Control – Dojo Rising

CLOUD CONTROL “DOJO RISING” Just found the Australian indie pop band Cloud Control, and they’ve been a huge part of my life since they entered it a few hours ago. The entire album is great, but if I had to choose one track, it would be “Dojo Rising.” Here are a few more selects from their...

This project has been a long time coming – the duo poured buckets of blood, sweat and tears into their 3rd full record as they laid the final touches to each track. Tune in to The Grizzled Mighty’s Bandcamp to preview the album and...
[Song of the Day] Jessica Pratt - "Back, Baby"

[Song of the Day] Jessica Pratt – “Back, Baby”

Jessica Pratt “Back, Baby” Last night Jessica Pratt played in Portland and now all I want is to become a bioluminescent unicorn just like her. This song was my favorite thing that happened and she played it just after thanking some friends in the audience for putting up with her during her heavy Modest Mouse/henna hair...
