There’s a story here. About the places where the wall between worlds is thin. Where doors come and go and change their locks and looks and when you leave you might not be back in the alley you walked down to find the place. Where the whiskey and smoke swirl together while minor demons play … Read more
The more I listen to Broken Moth by Loki Starfish, the more I like it. Also, check out Jérémie Lapeyre rocking the mic in a three piece suit and spats. Got to love a rock star with style. Official Website
Hey look, it’s a SWiiiM video that (mostly) doesn’t freak me out! (Maybe just a touch of vertigo on some of the shots!) No but really, it’s pretty. A love letter, even, to Californian sun and sweeping vistas, chickens and urban decay. It’s also something of a meditation on the subject of What Would Jesus … Read more
All y’all know how much I love a good lyric video. This one, for Running to the Sea by Röyksopp featuring Susanne Sundfør, is particularly clever and lovely. And the song is pretty great, too.
For some of you, today is just Thursday. For others, and for me, it’s Thanksgiving. One of the very many things I’m thankful for this year is Fall Out Boy, who came back, after a long time away. Here they are with Alone Together, one of my favorite songs from Save Rock and Roll.

I decided to share it in video form because the video both illustrates and clarifies the song. “Death” doesn’t necessarily mean actual death; it could just be … Read more
There are times when I wish I could transmit the experience of listening to body of music for the first time whole and complete and unfiltered, so that y’all could experience it just as I did. Because if I could, all of you would be able to stand with me on the subway platform on … Read more
Here is the video for Cannibal by Natti Vogel, directed by Rebecca Rojer, and starring Vogel and porn star Colby Keller. The song is a cabaret-pop gem about wanting to be consumed by a lover. The video plays with and explores the definitions and conventions of “food”, “porn”, and “food porn” by simultaneously mashing them … Read more
It’s a simple yet sublime pleasure, and just thinking about it can make you feel a little calmer, a little more content. Imagine: You bring out one of the good rocks glasses (or your favorite mug or a special occasion tea cup) and pour a couple fingers of amber liquid (or something dark and strong … Read more
