New Music: Jesse Boykins III – Love Apparatus

Jesse Boykins III is a Chicago born/Brooklyn residing singer, songwriter and producer that is currently getting pretty heavy rotation in my iTunes, and Love Apparatus is only going to add to my obsession. Fourteen tracks of flawless vocals, intricately produced tracks (thanks to fellow producer Machinedrum) and honest and open lyrics makes this album one of the best “R&B” releases of late. And I…

Björk - Homogenic #ThrowbackThursday

Björk – Homogenic #ThrowbackThursday

In honour of #ThrowbackThursday, I want to bring you back to 1997. There isn’t much I can say about Björk’s ‘Homogenic’ album that would actually make any kind of sense to anyone because to me it was more of an experience than it was an album. Listening to it makes me see images and colors and textures and landscapes and that makes me sound like I’m crazy, so I’m just going to post the Spotify…

XD Artist To Watch: Steffanie Christi’an

Often times when presented with Rock N’ Roll, we imagine big haired white men playing guitars on stage and screaming at the top of their lungs. Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with that as I just finished playing Bad English’s epic, monster ballad “When I See You Smile.” However, we are living time where we are redefining music and making it our own. Often times, we’re taking back our…

New Music: Vancouver Sleep Clinic - Winter [EP]

New Music: Vancouver Sleep Clinic – Winter [EP]

One thing you’re most likely going to notice about my taste in music is that the majority of it sounds like it was made while under the influence of one or more hard narcotics. The Winter EP from Vancouver Sleep Clinic is definitely no exception. And while musically it may be pleasing to the ear and calming to the soul, if you pay close attention to the lyrics they’re actually some of the most…
