Filter bubbles are real. Particularly in the social media era, we are all trapped inside a likeminded feedback loop of our own making.

Coldplay’s Tiny Desk Concert

Maybe I’m gonna get some guff for this, but I believe that Coldplay is an underrated band. Oh sure they’re popular, but they are also good, better than their reputation suggests. Brian Eno doesn’t work with just anyone after all. Their recent Tiny Desk Concert at NPR bears this out. Backed by a fantastic nine-person choir (who previously performed with the band at a prison-reform benefit), Coldplay frontman Chris Martin and guitarist Jonny Buckland joyously perform a few of their songs (like...

Coldplay’s “Trouble In Town” Video Depicts Racism And Police Violence Via Anthropomorphic Characters

I argued last year that Everyday Life is the best Coldplay album in a very long time.

Want vintage audio for your classic vinyl? Here’s what you need to know

Eight years ago, Mikey Weiss had wanted to build a display of vintage stereos at his Brooklyn store – “a museum piece,” he calls it – to show people what stereos looked like in the 1970s. His customers, however, wanted to buy those artifacts. Since then, Weiss has since sold oodles of old school gear, and last September he celebrated the grand opening of the West Coast Branch of Mikey’s Hook Up in Silver Lake. Amidst the stock of 21st-century gizmos, there was, of course, a smattering of vintage...
