Banjo Woman: A Portland Observation

She played one banjo while another silenced the sidewalk.

She was a faded white tee doused in holes. She was overall shorts and stained teeth. She posted up against a wall of endless bricks where she sang her favorite songs. Bluegrass renditions. Adding a twang in the Pacific Northwest that warranted the tossing of coins into her open guitar case. I listened long, taking a photo of her in mid yelp, genuinely happy to be expressing her afternoon art for the...

The Outfit, TX's Newest Short Film Demands a Rewind

Always approaching the rap game from an interesting (see also: powerful, forward-thinking) angle, the Dallas hip-hop trio The Outfit, TX released a short film earlier this week called "Burning Trees". Featuring production from Mel of TOTX as well as guitar work from Go! Ricky Go! Of iNDEEDFACE, I was into the video even before I pressed play.

What I saw was a five minute movie, an instrumental and slow motion narrative where all three members of...

Hotel Paranoia: Jazz Cartier's Newest Conceptual Monster

Last year, the artwork for Jazz Cartier's debut release, Marauding in Paradise, instantly caught my attention. The red statues appearing as mystics within a fable led to me pressing play and discovering the aggressive and expressionistic world of the Toronto talent. The sixteen songs (...

Instrumentals, remixes, hip-hop singles. I try to keep it electic. Let me know what I missed in the comment section below....

Watch Producer/Alien Ru AREYOU Stumble Through Sacramento

“Hi! I saw you land! Where did you come from?”

In “From”, Sacramento producer Ru AREYOU's new music video, we see our producer protagonist fall from the sky and stumble throughout his new surroundings. The world is psychedelic, glitched out, and kaleidoscopic. The footage acts simplistically, but the editing and the instrumental are both pristine. The video, which clocks in at under two minutes, will hold your attention, acting almost as a...

Eating Shrimp & Broccoli with V. Don, Da$h, and Sha Hef

I'm guilty of listening and watching anything released by New Jersey native Da$h. I've always compared the lyricist to a more drug-fueled and narcissistic version of Action Bronson, as they both envelop the use of hallucinatory imagery that I've always found to be impressive.

Most recently, Da$h added a guest verse to the song “Shrimp and Broccoli” by Harlem rapper V. Don. The track, which also features Sha Hef, received the visual...
