Beasts of the Southern Wild was nominated in multiple categories for the 2013 Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Director and the youngest Best Actress nominee of all time, Quvenzhane Wallis. As an independent film, many people have still not seen this film ($11 million total revenue in the United States) and I am telling you need to go to iTunes (or however you download films) and check it out. I am not going to get into the whole plot summary…

Oneness. Creativity. The Shift. Consciousness Awakening. The End of the World? What is going on with all this talk lately, as December 21st approaches. To those of you who may not know or have been hibernating in your own world of business, the spiritual communities and Pagan, Wiccan and Goddess religions along with the Mayans (yes their offspring do exists) are preparing for a cosmic alignment of our planetary system on December 21st, which is also know to us in the…Continue
As the old model for the music industry continues to die an undignified death, all eyes are on crowdsourcing as the “new model.” While successes like Amanda Palmer's million-dollar-kickstarter will never be the norm (and really shouldn't be if were going to be honest about sustainability here...), Corey Glover's latest solo record 'The Pledge is a perfect example of why we should be optimistic about a future of crowdsource funded records.

After writing the book on hardcore on their first 3 records (while moonlighting as a tight reggae band on those same records), Bad Brains expanded their sound to include elements of thrash, funk, metal, and even a bit of hip-hop. Meanwhile their reggae tracks gradually switched from being breaks from face-pummeling hardcore to being the main attraction. By the time 2007's Build a Nation came out, the band's faster songs sounded more like an obligation than a passion. Where Build…Continue

For 35 years (with a few notable breaks...) HR has served as the lead signer of the groundbreaking hardcore band Bad Brains. Patient zero for the Afropunk movement, Bad Brains' classic run from 1977-1985 produced 3 of the best hardcore records, period. The band's latest, Into the Future comes out November 20th.
Leading up to the interview, I admit I was more than a little nervous. Beyond being simply a legend and the singer for one of my favorite bands of all time, HR has a…
Nov 7 it was officially all over (even if the Florida count was yet to come in)

Always good to hear from UK trip-hop power trio Morcheeba and lead singer Skye Edwards. So you're in for a double treat: 1) The band has announced that they're cooking up a new record for 2013. They say: "we’re collaborating with some great international artists and it’s set to be one of our most innovative records to date." Sounds like a plan.
2) In the meanwhile, Skye Edwards is set to release her solo album 'Back To Now' on Monday October 29th! Woo! Check the first single…

When Odd Future signed hardcore punk band Trash Talk to be the first non-Odd Future artist on the label, it all made sense, sort of. What could be more punk rock for a hip-hop group with punk rock tendencies than signing an uncompromising hardcore band to their Sony-distributed label? But where Odd Future excels in pushing buttons and expanding hip-hop, Trash Talk are content to dig in and be the most hardcore hardcore band out there. They don't reinvent the wheel on the new…Continue
