'Yew Trees (The Mixes)' by Giant Glove
Anglo-Japanese sound scientists Giant Glove collaborate with Bred Pudding Collective (BPC) to bring us an EP of remixes of their track "Yew Trees." "Yew Trees" started out as a symbiotic poem by haiku poet Paul Conneally (a founding member of BPC) written via the process of "link and shift" that comes from renga poetry writing. Shuntaro and Paul of Giant Glove set the poem to music with a few shifts presenting the two tone, two voice poem in a slightly different form. It appears on Giant Glove’s...

"One Small Voice" Review
While watching the movie Elmopalooza with my little sister, I cannot help but partially think of it as revisiting some songs from my earlier youth. Several minutes after I debate on whether I should feel ashamed for liking the Jimmy Buffett version of "Caribbean Amphibian" as much as I do, I feel pride as I am reintroduced to the song that is the subject of this article: the Kenny Loggins version of "One Small Voice." Obvious as it is, no matter who sings the song, the words don't change and, ev...

BLACKPINK Beauty Ranking
Quick disclaimer: this is just my opinion, and your list can, and it will, be different that mine. Each girl has a unique charm and talent. That is why depending on the concept, song, outfits, and makeup one of the girls is bound to stand out more than the others in beauty. I think they are all pretty, and that without one of them the group is incomplete. "Boombayah" 1. Jennie 2. Lisa 3. Jisoo 4. Rosé Jennie really fits "Boombayah's" style. When I first heard that YG was debuting a girl group, I...

Charlie Strange, a Music Video, a Sandwich, and the Taste of Our Era
A sad piece of bread is getting covered in slow motion with an even sadder mayonnaise. Chunks of floppy lettuce are thrown on some cheese, the kind of cheese that would probably not melt after two hours of baking. A dirty pink, unnatural color coming from industrial meat slices completes the palette. If a little twist at the end of the four-ish minute video takes the viewer by surprise in a first phase (no spoiler alert), it is only to reinforce an impression of reclusion; of meal-for-one situat...

That’s what my father told me when I first let him know that I had interest in pursuing a music career. Music is and has always been a very big part of my life. Sounds cliche, but there isn’t a much better way to put it. I remember when my parents got divorced and I was around the age of 12, I blasted Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon into my headphones on repeat. I remember I sat next to a paramedic in ambulance D-12 as my mom was driven to the hospital for having a stress-induced seizure,...
