Surprise, Surprise! Another Australian killing it. This Cleopold guy only has about 2000 facebook likes but I think that will change very soon. Fellow Aussie, Chet Faker, just posted this track and it’s very captivating. The song takes you on a soulful ride with some hip hop and funk elements sprinkled in there to keep you moving just right. There is a nasty little guitar solo toward the end that will get you scrunchin your face up every time. Give …

FESTIVAL REVIEW: String Cheese Incident @ Electric Forest

In Festivals by Chris TartLeave a Comment

Our previous story on Electric Forest touched on the festival’s diversity. From patrons to artists, the event is a true smorgasbord of festival counterculture. Of course, Electric Forest’s spiritual leaders are none other than The String Cheese Incident, quite possibly the world’s most eclectic band. Over the course of three days, six sets, and about twelve hours worth of scheduled music, the String Cheese Incident proved exactly why they are the best band to headline a festival like this. Sure, their Sunday …

SHOW REVIEW: Five Things Learned From Everyone Orchestra [Boulder, CO]

In Colorado, DubEra by Jonny ScoblionkoLeave a Comment

Matt Butler has one of the coolest jobs in the world. In case you have never seen Everyone Orchestra, conductor Matt Butler leads a rotating cast of musicians through set-long jam sessions. Butler’s melodic guidance is truly incredible to watch, as he uses dance, air-instrumenting, and suggested themes to steer the music. His passion and excitement for the music was palpable and contagious throughout the night. Songs do not need to be written before they are performed. One of the …

FESTIVAL REVIEW: ‘Eclectic Forest’ Reigns Supreme

In DubEra, Festivals by Chris Tart2 Comments

There are few festivals that boast the kind of diversity that Electric Forest does. Where else do you see bluegrass fans and kandi kids? Rainbow and confederate flags? Sixteen year-old Skrillex fans and older, more seasoned veterans of the festival scene? Sure, Summer Camp and Bonnaroo might fit the mold, but along with Electric Forest, these are rare representations of diversity and unity through music. Just a glance at the Electric Forest lineup and you can tell that it’s one of …

Ninety thousand people entered the extremely muddy Woodlands on Thursday after a night of severe raining.

SHOW REVIEW: I Lost My Tooth at the Widespread McGee Show [Jones Beach, NY]

In New York by Chris TartLeave a Comment

It was a dark day. I say that not only because it was literally a sun-less tailgate in the Jones Beach parking lot, but also because I lost my front tooth while biting into a panini during said tailgate. The tooth was actually a ceramic cap that covered up my real tooth, which fell out originally during a freak pogo stick accident at the ripe age of 13. It was humiliating. My friends had a field day with it. I made …

SHOW REVIEW: Lee Burridge’s All Day I Dream [Brooklyn, NY]

In DubEra, New York by Julian ColucciLeave a Comment

The line was long, the sun was beating down, the muffled bass teased everyone, but we all knew it would be worth the wait. Recently I read a book called “One Mind” by Dr. Larry Dossey. The premise of Dossey’s book is that as individual humans we don’t create consciousness, but merely interpret or connect to one universal consciousness – “One Mind.” As I descended down the stairs the purple and aqua canopy floated in the breeze. The glitter, laughter and …
