Holographic Art and Vintage Ways: Speaking with Cashy (@keshdollacashy)

South Miami rapper Cashy held our attention throughout 2014, first releasing Platinum Plus in January. Entirely produced by PurpDogg (Soulja Boy, Bones), the quick EP blended heavy bass loops with the circus frenzy vocal ranges of Cashy aka Kesh Dolla.

Following Platinum Plus, the VintageMOB label head returned in October with Priceless, another EP of Floridian energy, worthy of playing...

Karate Chopping Flash Fiction (@dorthenors)

I'm currently in the process of reading a book of short stories called Karate Chop by Dorthe Nors. Flash fiction, if you will, as each story is usually under three pages in length.

Blur Return with Cooking Show, Craft Foreign Ice Cream (@blurofficial)

Blur is Back, Blur is Back!

Damon Albarn and crew have returned after twelve years of silence to bring you yet another Blur LP. Praise the rock lords.

(Photo cred: Jake Myers)

Back in late April of 2014, a producer by the name of Walkingshoe released an instrumental album called Blastphemy. Since I found it on an Italian blog and the project was released through a French label, it came as a bit of a pleasant surprise when I found that Walkingshoe is based in Chicago. “Eerie synchronicity”, to use a term that Walkingshoe will coin in just a few...

Tails of Sorrow: Issue Three by Blake Gardner (@yeahokblake)

I am pleased to announce that it is March 1 and that means that we get the third issue of Tails of Sorrow by Chicago artist Blake Gardner. When we last left off, our hero Doug (a dog) had traveled from a strip club to a concert and was en route to a house party of cats. I have a feeling that things are about to get weird. Let's see what happens next.

Khori4 Creates His Own Paradox (@Khori_4)

St. Louis artist Khori 4 (who now resides in Chicago) came on my radar when he collaborated with Hurt Everybody for last year's massive single "In Seoul". A damn near Chicago anthem for my past summer, the song was perfect, and Khori's verse is a...
