You get Daemonia, brought to you by Claudio Simonetti. And what do you get when they release an album covering the score to the original Dawn of the Dead? Well, back in 2013, you got a pretty damn excited Widge, that’s for sure.

Elorik – Sísifo ( Videoclip)

El artista bogotano Elorik juntó sus rimas junto con la instrumental de SVNP para crear el sencillo “Sísifo”. En esta canción nos transportamos en un viaje hacia una visión subjetiva del artista y su pensamiento acerca de la existencia y el sentido de la vida, dándole importancia a su capacidad para dar su opinión frente a diferentes dimensiones del ser humano. Esta canción es como una especie de autopsia para el alma. Como dato curioso (que leí en el comunicado de prensa de La Biblioteca) le...

Peter Frampton talks new memoir ahead of Cameron Crowe virtual event at LA’s Book Soup

For Peter Frampton, the idea of a memoir was always on his list of things to do, but never today, not this year, that’s for the future. Frampton definitely had stories to tell just from his youth on the outskirts of London: He was friends with David Jones (soon to be known to the world as David Bowie); his teenage rock band was produced by Bill Wyman of the Rolling Stones; he played in another teen band that toured with The Who. And the stories kept coming: When he was 18, he joined Steve Marrio...

The music may be astonishing, the ideas volatile. Which will have the longer and more consequential afterlife? Perhaps more compelling than either, Ross suggests, is the irreconcilability of the problem. – Slate
