A Good Plunger is Hard to Find

“Somethin ain’t right here,” said Carl, standing over the empty hole in the bathroom. “Uh, Ma’am, ya said ya needed a plumber, but I got some news for ya… Ya don’t got no toilet.” “Ma’am?” Carl yelled, a bit louder than before. He stepped backward...

THE SHE

THE SHE DOME: Ode to a B-Train Biddy

The girl “clubbed” hard. I could tell just by looking at her. She was wearing a teal tube dress and Claire’s jewelry on a Thursday at 7pm in Midtown. Her unadulterated excitement to get out there and grind on some middle-aged man meat showed on…

THE QUARRY: Waiting on the Morning

Hailing from Columbus, Ohio, The Quarry is a three-man band that just might be the amalgam of every 90’s band you ever loved. Their freshman EP, Waiting on the Morning, (now available on Spotify) transports you back to a time when infectious folk-y rock blues pop was…

Music Monday: King Tuff

King Tuff is charisma incarnate . Looking, sounding, and playing like an absolute wild man, Kyle Thomas; the king we speak of, has returned with an album truly marking him as a bad, bad thing. The scope of this record has matured slightly from his…

“So You Have A Weird Name…”

I’m a 90’s kid. I dealt with the break-up of Cory and Topanga. I dealt with waiting twenty minutes for America Online’s dial-up to complete so that I could read email. I dealt with the fact that my Furby was probably a cold blooded killer….

IN YOUR EARS: Unknown Mortal Orchestra

Unknown Mortal Orchestra is like a great white shark without the insecurities or power trips of other lo-fi bands. Swimming through the scene, with absolute awareness of their skill, yet without an attitude about it. Dipping into the 60’s like so many bands out there today (see…

DIA DE LOS TORTAS: MEXICO, COLORADO, NEW YORK, FOOD AND ME

Living in New York City, I’ve discovered that there are only three ways to get good Mexican food here: 1. Not at all 2. Settle for some crappy, half-assed imitations 3. Dig through miles and miles of said crappy imitations to find the rare jewels…
