    That this record hasn’t been championed — how any of its 14 tracks haven’t been featured on a comp curated by some crate-digger DJ or turntablist — is beyond me. Take a nearly-unlistenable but awesome marching band album, cross it with Asian-inspired instrumentation, add a weird Shriner/Masonic twist. This is the Chicago Oriental Band. It’s borderline unlistenable and it will blow your mind. Shockingly the album is available for sale on […]

Ever since I started running back in 2011 I am not even sure I can count on one hand the […]

    Has it been two weeks already? Where does the time go? Answer: I think scientists believe it points in the direction of entropy, but the last physics class I took was in 2001 so I might be mistaken. Also I used to smoke a lot of pot before physics because I could get away with it on the grounds that the teacher and I […]

    Last Thursday I was lucky enough to catch Ken Camden and Stars of the Lid at the Regent downtown. SotL performed with the Wordless Music Orchestra, with whom they have shared a stage multiple times recently. Perhaps the most well-documented of those shows was the one at the Basilica Of Our Lady Of Perpetual Help in New York. As of that concert in […]
