Review: Luke Winslow-King’s ‘The Coming Tide’
Thank God for Luke Winslow-King. In a musical era in which simple beats and perverse lyrics reign supreme, and enjoying quality music puts you in the minority, Winslow-King brings back a feeling long forgotten: the way your hips can’t help but sway in an almost instinctive way when early 20th century jazz blares from your…

SXSW with Ginger & The Ghost
Ginger & The Ghost is one of my absolute favorite South by Southwest finds. Not only were they some of the most friendly, personable people I’ve gotten to talk to, but they are also enormously talented. Seeing them perform live feels like a privilege, almost as if the audience is being granted an exclusive chance…
SXSW with D E N A
“Cash, Diamond Rings, Swimming Pools.” It’s catchy. It’s fun. It’s been stuck in my head for about three weeks. I got the chance to catch up with D E N A, Bulgarian (Berlin-based) vocalist/songwriter/pop/hip hop artist/badass at South by Southwest for a quick chat. Before we got to the official interview, we met up at…
SXSW with New Madrid
Upon first listen, I quickly realized that New Madrid would turn into one of my favorite SXSW finds. The music they make is powerful; it forces you into a trance-like state and transcends the boundaries of your mind far from worldly concerns. Each time I play Yardboat, I feel a little more free and lot…
