[Song of the Day] Idles - "Danny Nedelko"

[Song of the Day] Idles – “Danny Nedelko”

Today's song of the day is a bass-driven pro-immigrant punk rock anthem from this English band, Idles (pronounced "idols"). It's extremely refreshing in today's political climate.

DB2015: Thievery Corporation

DB2015: Thievery Corporation

Thievery Corporation is one of those bands that I have loved for years, and still feel that I found much later than I would have liked. The chance to shoot them at this year’s Decibel Festival was one that couldn’t be passed up, especially considering it was the first time I had the chance to...
DB2015: Bonobo w/ Manatee Commune, Taylor McFerrin & Gilligan Moss

DB2015: Bonobo w/ Manatee Commune, Taylor McFerrin & Gilligan Moss

The first of my two nights behind the lens of this year’s Decibel Festival had me posted up at the Showbox for a sold out evening with Gilligan Moss, Manatee Commune, Taylor McFerrin and Bonobo. Though I didn’t get a chance to shoot Gilligan, the duo had the early crowd in a dancing frenzy as the floor began...
On Deck: Decibel Festival 2015

On Deck: Decibel Festival 2015

Fortunately we just picked up some new custom fit earplugs at Sasquatch Festival this year, which will be more than necessary for shooting this year’s Decibel Fest in Seattle. Starting this weekend, the venues of the Emerald City will be taken over by some of the world’s best electronic acts, combined with a plethora of rising artists who...

[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, height, or sponsorship money. They’re...
[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.
