Struggle Mike – “Progress” (Album Review)

Struggle Mike , owner of Stuggle Clothing, from  Buffalo New York releases a compilation album featuring multiple local indie artists who have cross paths with him and his business called “Progress”. The dystopia style cover art was intriguing from my 1st glance, I was excited to pill the plastic back (Figure of speech) and digest the album fully. The Introduction was chilling, it starts with a reporter explaining the current state of the world and how its effecting  Mexico during Covid Pandemi...

Matt Dillon's still ready to rumble: 'I have never lived a sheltered life'

He’s played a teen tearaway, a racist cop, a conman and a serial killer. But can he play a cellist? The star talks about his role in Yorgos Lanthimos’s first film since The Favourite – and making a jazz documentaryIn his time, Matt Dillon has been about as quintessentially American a screen presence as you can imagine.

Word of the week (and maybe the year): Weird

2020 has been a sad year, a scary year, an angry year, a lonely year, a grieving year. Above all, though, it’s been a weird year. Very, very, very weird—from the personal (sheltering in place, in some cases for months on end) to the social (no funerals, no parties, no breaching the six-foot contact boundary) to the cultural (no movies, no theater, no concerts, no schools, no restaurants, no sports) to the political (do I need to repeat all the counterfactuals?). It’s been a weird year for mov...

How Rusty Eye made COVID-safe music videos at LA’s legendary Jumbo’s Clown Room

When the pandemic hit back in March, many musical artists pivoted to some sort of livestreaming outlet to perform, chat or release fresh content. Los Angeles-based heavy metal trio Rusty Eye hasn’t gotten in the livestreaming game yet, but the band has been ferociously promoting its new album, “Dissecting Shadows,” which dropped on Oct. 23. It’s a fun and horror-filled record that plays out like a script from a slasher film with cuts like “Mrs. Baylock,” which pays homage to the character from t...

‘Mama Said Knock You Out’ turns 30: Don’t call LL Cool J’s classic a comeback

“Hey, it’s the 30th anniversary of ‘Mama Said Knock You Out,’” my editor texted. “Would you get LL Cool J on the phone to talk about that?” I liked that idea, and I liked it even more when he said the legendary rapper had put his phone number online back in March so fans could give him a call about anything during the pandemic. So I did. “Hey LL! Or, should I say, Mr. Cool J?” I texted him at 917-540-5512, which, in actual fact, is a real number for him. I got an auto-reply, and yes, that was di...

Hear the Sound Of Endangered Birds Get Turned Into Electronic Music

Bird-watching is having a moment, thanks to the pandemic. As non-essential workers adjusted to spending more time at home, their ears adjusted to the increasingly non-foreign sound of birdsong outside their windows. Those sweet tweets are no doubt largely responsible for the record breaking turnout at this year’s Global Big Day, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology's annual birding event, held earlier this spring. 50,000 participants logged 2.1 million individual observations, and 6,479 sp...

For Latin boyband CNCO, the future is bright, if just a bit delayed by coronavirus

Back in January, the five guys in the Latin boy band CNCO were all laughter and smiles as they sat backstage at the Forum in Inglewood, a few days before tickets went on sale for their biggest Southern California show yet. Or what would have been their biggest show had not the coronavirus pandemic wiped the concert calendars clean right through CNCO’s now-canceled June 12 show at the Forum and into the future. But at that moment, 2020 looked so bright and so full of potential. So while the year ...

Recreating The Musical Instruments Of Ancient Mexico’s Lost Metropolis

Teotihuacán, which had a population of around 100,000 at its height circa 500 CE, seems to have had no system of writing and left behind no known written records. But musical instruments have survived — quadruple flutes, double-chambered water whistles and the like. Researcher Arnd Adje Both, whom one might call a paleo-musicologist, has had copies of those instruments made and is planning to bring them to Teotihuacán to be played. – The Economist

El Búho and DJ Raff Celebrate Chilean Social Resistance with "Resiliencia" (premiere)

DJ Raff's work, of course, has been foundational in Chilean hip-hop since the '90s, when Rafael Pérez first started putting together loops and beats with other young artists growing up in what was another politically turbulent time for the nation. Since then, as DJ Raff, he has circled the globe. So has Perkins, whose music career took shape more recently in Mexico and has landed him for the time being in Paris.

Mango’s Spring ‘20 Campaign Collection Has The ‘70s Vests & Suits You’ve Been Looking For (But For Way Less $$)

As a market editor, I get a lot of questions about clothes. Where to get them? How to wear them? How much to spend on them? But recently, everyone seems to want to know one specific thing: Where can they get a good suit that’s fashion-forward, but not too weird? Usually, I first ramble off a list of designers that specialize in tailoring (Gabriela Hearst, Peter Do, and Tibi, to name a few) before ducking from the inevitable “wait, how much are they??” follow-up. But as of today, my answer to tha...

Netflix offered up quite the Valentine’s Day weekend bingeing opportunity. On one hand, there were rom-coms like To All The Boys 2 and Isi & Ossi.

Yet, there are still quite a few under-the-radar treats waiting for you ...
