Essential Mixtape Alert: The Hood Internet Volume 7

YO! This mix has been out since April, but I keep coming back to it over + over + OVER whenever I need a life boost. If you like Drake, Purity Ring, Danny Brown, Daft Punk, Justin Timberlake, Juicy J, Trinidad James, Action Bronson, Tame Impala, Dirty Projectors, Robyn….really, if you like ANY music at(…)

Goodbye Horses, Hello Ecstasy

Goodbye Horses, Hello Ecstasy

I have been in love with Q Lazzarus’s song “Goodbye Horses” forever and about DIED when I heard that Jon Hopkins + Wild Beasts‘ Hayden Thorpe were planning a cover. Now that it’s here, I’m glad I didn’t actually die because this. song. is. everything. Just listen and let these golden tendrils of sound wash(…)

The Most Comfortable Headphones Ever: InCase Sonic

The Most Comfortable Headphones Ever: InCase Sonic

Yes, InCase headphones sound good. But, almost as important to me – they’re ridiculously comfortable! If I’m wearing headphones, they’re typically on my head for a while. After a few hours, either my ears or head are killing me and I end up steady grimacing while simply trying to listen to some sweet jams privately.(…)

So, thanks Hennessy Youngman (of CVS Bangers and CVS Bangers 2(…)

Feast Your Eyes (and Ears) on…Jay Park

Feast Your Eyes (and Ears) on…Jay Park

YO. Real talk: I love K-Pop, but have typically been less impressed with the milquetoast dudes of K-Pop than I have been with the dominatingly talented girl groups. Jay Park, however, has me completely rethinking all of my ideas of right and wrong. I saw his video for “1HUNNIT” at a recent trip to Prince(…)
