The psychedelic imagery in the video clip for Brooklyn trio EULA’s “Noose” caught my eye big time. While the song, a pounding piece of droney but melodic Art-Rock/Noise-Rock/Post-Punk/whatever, is pretty far-out in it’s own right. “Noose” is from the band’s sophomore LP ‘Wool Sucking’, out March 3rd via Famous Swords/Mirror[…]
This blog’s longtime love-affair with Swedish Pop music may have just been rekindled thanks to Personal Trainers and their single “Show Me Love”. No, they didn’t cover the 1993 House classic by Robin S, rather the duo, comprised of Peter Morén & Tobias Isaksson, delivered a slick and satisfying slice[…]
Sorry folks, but due to the “Historic East Coast Blizzard” happening right now Monday Magick will be taking this week off. We’ll be back with another entry of our magickal musical feature next week.

Now that 2014 has officially been put to bed I figure there couldn’t be a better time to take a moment to share my favorite records of the year. Make no mistake, these aren’t the only records I dug this year. And this list is in no way supposed to[…]

When Motown’s in-house backup band The Funk Brothers were showcased in a documentary several years ago they called ‘Standing in the Shadow of Motown’. The new documentary about The Wrecking Crew, a group of studio musicians responsible for the music on countless Pop, Rock, and Soul classics, might as well[…]
“When Lucifer fell, he did not fall alone.” One of my favorite television programs of the last year, Showtime’s ‘Penny Dreadful’, is returning for a second season! Eva Green, Timothy Dalton, and Josh Hartnett will be back to creep us all out on Sunday, April 26th at 10 PM ET/PT.[…]
While everybody pegs dancer turned singer/songwriter FKA twigs as “experimental” she’s making some of the purest, sexiest, most emotionally naked Slow Jams of our era. Her newest single “Pendulum” brings the sub-genre’s signature loin-vibrating bass, jittery beats, whispery crooning, and hushed falsetto in almost confusingly enormous quantities. The self-directed video[…]
We haven’t heard from blog favorite Nedelle Torrisi since the first week of this site’s relaunch. That post was about the first single from her then forthcoming self-titled LP. This post is about her newest single from that LP, a downtempo, bass-heavy, Tropical balled called “Don’t Play Dumb”. Apparently she[…]
Saint Louis-bred crooner Coultrain quotes the ‘Ghostbusters 2’ theme and flashes some Alchemical symbolism in the his new self-directed video for the Industrial-Soul ballad “Kiss of Death”. “Kiss of Death” is the lead-off track from Coultrain’s new EP, the Black Spade-produced ‘Side Effex Of Make Believe; divided for love’s sake’,[…]
