Your 2020 Guide On What To Give Up For Lent

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, which will last until Thursday, April 9, 2020. Even if you don’t participate in it, you may have some idea about what it is — kids at school might have talked about giving up chocolate for 40 days, for instance. For many practicing Christians, the season is meant to be a time to commit to your faith by abstaining from something you consider a pleasure or a distraction. People observe Lent in different ways. But despite its reputation, the holi...

Big Twins & DirtyDiggs – “Queensbridge” (EP Review)

This is the brand new EP from New York emcee Big Twins.

However, he is now teaming up with California producer DirtyDiggs for Queensbridge. It all starts with “No Hesitation”, where Twins raps about how he isn’t afraid to shoot anyone over an organ.

Can The Worldwide Vinyl Boom Recover From The Apollo Factory Fire?

A billion dollar industry dependent on one factory in California? That’s physical manufacturing, so perhaps not. The factory, where 75 percent of the world’s blank lacquers were made, burned in early February. “Pressing plants and mastering engineers are assessing the future. Some have expressed fear that the fire will disrupt the global production of new album releases and slow the seemingly endless supply of reissues that major labels churn out.” – Los Angeles Times

Euglossine Creates a Gleaming Electronic Vista with 'Psaronius'

"Utah Teapot", named after the famous 3D graphics test model, begins with breezy flourishes before a funky beat takes over, and the song is transformed into a strange, sparse dance track. If the sudden appearance of a standard time signature is Euglossine's bid for mainstream acceptance, he does an immediate 180 with "Dryocampa Messenger Service". It's a song full of random bursts of electronic squalls, in addition to random beats that (thankfully) never quite coalesce into a song-length pulse...

Here’s Why This Member of The Beach Boys is Now Boycotting His Own Music

AI upscaling makes this Lumiere Bros film look new – and you can use the same technique

A.I.! Good gawd y’all – what is it good for? Absolutely … upscaling, actually. Some of machine learning’s powers may prove to be simple but transformative. And in fact, this “enhance” feature we always imagined from sci-fi becomes real. Just watch as a pioneering Lumiere Brothers film is transformed so it seems like something shot with money from the Polish government and screened at a big arty film festival, not 1896. It’s spooky. It’s the work of Denis Shiryaev. (If you speak...

Ears Wide Open: Joy Weather

As happens with departures, breakups and other partings of the ways, songwriter Brian Ishiba didn’t know what he had until it was gone. In the case of the song “Oh California,” it was good old suburban Los Angeles. Ishiba fronts the L.A. trio Joy Weather, who released their self-titled debut album of emo-inspired indie-rock last week. The band got its start under the name Royce, but its evolution was put on hold a few years ago when Ishiba moved to Tokyo, where he had attended college. While liv...
