[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] 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.
