Get to Know: Chicago Duo Moon and Ju (@MoonAndJu)

Am I late to the party or right on time?

Interesting side story: at the beginning of 2014, I paid a visit to Jugrnaut in Chicago to interview producer Thelonious Martin. While I was waiting, I was walking around the store (admiring the Mishka gear), when a kid stopped me and asked me if I made music. I told him no, but that I was waiting for an...


Wrestlemania 31, As Told By @ohaileigh & @gnarly_race

In American culture, people gather to celebrate the largest sporting event of the year with food, friends, and booze. This event also incites many promotions in the business and retail world, and is even watched by some for it's commericals and halftime show. This event is called the SuperBowl. Normal people watch the SuperBowl. Here at Mishka, we are not normal, and to some of us, the SuperBowl pales in relevance to our favorite sports entertainment event of the...

10 Projects Mishka Records Released in Winter 2015

Winter has come to a close. Ice still hangs from the Chicago houses and no one is safe quite yet, but according to humanity's calendars and the stars above, we have now entered spring.

As a result, I found it fitting to provide a recap for our readers on the ten Mishka Records releases we provided; ten projects...


Oceano's Crushing Comeback: Ascendants (@oceanometal)

I’m going to get this out of the way right at the start here: Ascendants, Oceano’s newest album, is one of the most tightly packaged deathcore efforts I’ve ever heard. And holy fuck is it H E A V Y.

Oceano have been in the game since 2006, releasing a one-two punch of well-received studio albums in ‘09 and ‘10. Three years went by, with rumors brewing that the band had called it quits, before the release of...


H&M Faked It Until Someone Else Made It

Readers around these parts should be well aware by now that if they want to be cool, they need to listen to some form of heavy metal. Maybe something referential like Sabbath,  but preferably something obscure and foreign and maybe questionable. So yeah, like Sabbath. Fashion giant H&M knows all too well what kids are into these days, so they decided to create a line of "heavy metal" inspired apparel. They delved deeply into the...


Are We Living in a Computer Simulation?

Most people guess the next big advancement in technology will be intelligent robots and computers – but who’s to say the self-aware machines aren’t us?

Fans of Phillip K Dick are no strangers to his tales of alternate worlds and worlds within worlds. It’s also not new information that in 1977, Dick expressed his beliefs that we are, in fact, living in a computer simulation. A concept also explored in the film...


SXSW Recap: Vibes (Day 2) (@Vibes2015)

On Friday, the crowd was a bit smaller, due in part to the rain and due in part to the fire marshall lowering the capacity from 800 to 360 because Thursday was far too lit for law-abiding citizens.

Alexander Spit had an early afternoon set in the rain. Sunglasses and a rainbow shirt, he focused on rapping rather than being behind the boards...
