Dining in a Dinosaur

Dining in a Dinosaur

It has been proven time and time again that things are not what they seem and that we should praise complete and truthful information as the only thing that can diminish the numbing bouts of general ignorance. With the world being stuck in a constant state of turmoil, I often find myself wondering how much do we actually know, where are we going and why haven’t we arrived there yet. As these questions drill my skull, my mind races off to a little piece of info I read as a kid, enamored with stories of exploration and mystery. One of the most interesting tales of data misinterpretation...

Trippy Rock Music Videos

Trippy Rock Music Videos

In its essence, rock’n’roll is supposed to be a never-ending stream of conscious-expanding expression, a spiked glass of escapism under the hood of the proverbial rebel yell. Songs that mean something special to us tend to paint visuals in our mind and the intensity of those pictures depends on the listeners’ imagination and their emotional attachment to a particular tune. That being said, conveying the crux of the song to a visual medium can be quite tricky and it has been proven time and time again that music videos can make or break whole careers. The importance of the...

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Push the Sky Away

With the echoes of his swashbuckling badboy project Grinderman still ringing in our ears, Nick Cave shaved off his noise-making moustache, reassembled his old troupe The Bad Seeds and released a bouquet of nine new songs under the title Push the Sky Away. Although stylistically miles away from its predecessor, it would be much too simplistic to write it off as a Grinderman aftershock, especially since the The Bad Seeds include all the members of the former, and there are too many signs that the radical change was a conscious step back to the murky realms of atmospheric elucidation that owes...

Richey James Edwards – In Memoriam

Richey James Edwards - In Memoriam

February 17th 1995. The police found an abandoned silver Vauxhall Cavalier at the parking lot of the bridge across the Severn river, a notorious suicide site. Its owner Richey James Edwards, member of the Welsh quartet Manic Street Preachers that hijacked the British music scene a few years earlier with a mixture of social counter-activism and archaic rock’n’roll glamor, pushing aside the dancefloor psychedelics and painfully apolitical sounds of Madchester, was missing since February 1st. As the author of the Manics’ manifesto, lead lyricist and chief public relations officer,...

The Joy Formidable – Wolf’s Law

The Joy Formidable - Wolf's Law

With music artists as diverse as the Manic Street Preachers, Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci and Future of the Left, and throwing John Cale in the mix for good measure, Wales became known as the primary breeding ground for alternative sounds and stances that levitate a bit off from the central indie machinery. The Joy Formidable, one of the few new bands that is fully armed with the ability to hit you like a heavily amplified swarm of bumblebees, hails from the same surroundings. After their debut EP A Balloon Called Moaning harvested nothing but praise and the full-fledged release The Big Roar...
