Above and Beyond Releases Blue Monday on a Monday

How does it feel to be treated to a stellar, ambitious cover by Above and Beyond? What if that cover is New Order's 1983 classic 'Blue Monday'? Spoiler Alert: It feels really good, particularly on the old ear holes. But you don't have to take my word for it. Further,...

Duke Dumont Kicks Off 2020 with a Little House Therapy

I don't know about you, but I certainly self-medicate with music, and it appears Duke Dumont is hip to it. 'Therapy' is everything I love about House music, cranked to eleven. The soulful vocals, inspirational lyrics, addictive hooks, and a driving rhythm buoy me in a world that seems hell-bent...

Zhu and Bob Got Us ‘Zoning’

Zhu: “Hmm, who should I work with next?”          *throws dart into a record store*          “The Bloody Beetroots it is!” Did it really happen that way? Most certainly not. But maybe… As peculiar a combination as it is, it doesn’t hold a candle to the burning pile of WTF that is...

Mark Farina is One Funky Dude

At the end of the night, one thought kept repeating in my mind: Mark Farina is one funky dude. A close second? “I effing love you, Minneapolis.” But that could have been the White Claw talking. (For the more visually-inclined, hit up a full album of pics here) Going in,...

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly: Electric Forest 2019 Reviewed

This year's Electric Forest carried a unique blend of special moments, highlights, and a bevy of problems.
