2015: A Year in Pictures

Hello, darlings. I hope you are having excellent holidays, or at least excellent days.

Normally this feature is just a year’s worth of shows – or a year and a bit – but I’m doing something a little different this time around. 2015 has been amazing, at times, and brutal, at others, and as I uploaded my images, it occurred to me that some of the silences had as much of an impact as the instances of joyful noise.

So, here it is: a year of pictures of rockstars, and some other things, too.

Visualizer: PHASES, Betty Blue

Z Berg and Michael Runion, PHASES

PHASES, formerly known as JJAMZ, put out a new record called For Life a couple of months back. Below is the visualizer video for Betty Blue, one of the tunes on that record, which I like because it looks and sounds like TRON on acid.

Also, y’all should know that while they sound like synth-disco recorded, live they have darker, jagged edge.
