Pink Floyd Top 30 Bonanza Recap Post

Alexander: It has been done Cameron. Two Top 30 lists for a band that we both love. While I was really excited that we are five Top 30 lists in already, I was also quite excited to read your list. I didn’t quite know what to expect, as it’s been quite a while since we last had a set top 30 conversation about Pink Floyd. I think your list is quite good, I quite enjoy the really informative pieces…

Pink Floyd Top 30 Bonanza Part 1 - Alex’s Picks

A few months ago, Cameron and I had a conversation about the future of the Top 30 lists. We had decided that we quite enjoyed the way we currently format them, but we both agreed that eventually we were going to encounter a band that both of us wanted to make a list for, because as you readers know, there are many bands we both love to bits. We threw around a few ideas, and in the end decided…

Album Review: Songs of Innocence

It’s been a few weeks, so I sit down to talk to Cameron about U2’s latest album, Songs of Innocence. Thank you for reading!

Alexander: Alright Cameron, I’ve been waiting to talk to you about something for a little while now. Our past two posts have focused on Manchester Orchestra, so we didn’t have time to discuss a monumental new release from one of our favorite bands, but I think it’s allowed us some time to settle and gather our thoughts about the topic. I’m talking of course about the new U2 album “Songs of…

I was a bit apprehensive of picking this band for a variety of different reasons, I wasn’t sure how many people would be familiar with Manchester Orchestra, the band only have 4 official studio albums and 7 EPs, but as time crept by and I decided I needed to get serious about writing this list, Manchester Orchestra seemed like by far the most interesting band to delve into. I’ve just been…

The Kazakhs are the descendants of Turkic, Mongolic and Indo-Iranian tribes and Huns that populated the territory between Siberia and the Black Sea. They are a semi-nomadic people and have roamed the mountains and valleys of western Mongolia with their herds since the 19th century.The ancient art of eagle hunting is one of many traditions and skills that the Kazakhs have been able to hold on to for the last decades. They rely on their clan and herds, believing in pre-Islamic cults of the sky, the ancestors, fire and the supernatural forces of good and evil spirits.

Alexander’s Journey Through the Outside Lands 2014

I’ve been to Outside Lands Music Festival in Golden Gate Park 3 years in a row now, and it has consistently been a fantastic experience, in fact, it has rapidly become one of my favorite times of the year. The music, food, drink, atmosphere, (and most importantly) the bands are all exceptional, the microcosm of Golden Gate Park cradling a cultural event that brings some of the best bands in the…

And Now for Something Completely Different

And Now for Something Completely Different

Alexander: Alright Cameron, so far in our musical discussion we’ve covered a few bands, but most of them could be classified as some form of rock. Now I think it’s time that we go beyond that, and delve into the realm of post-rock shoegaze synth pop! More specifically, I wanted to bring up M83, a band that recently has been occupying quite a bit of playtime on my iPod. The first time that I had…
