DON'T SETTLE FOR CONVENIENCE
WHEN IT COMES TO THE SOUND OF YOUR MUSIC

I've worked for great men, pioneers of music and high end audio. I'm honored and grateful that I learned so much from them.

I write about music and hifi for The Daily Swarm, Positive-Feedback.com, and Big Black Disc (vinyl blog). I've worked my ass off building a solid readership over the years....

Here's part of the reason....

New Beak> Album review in Positive Feedback!!

Digital Release: 6/13

Physical Release: 7/3

I love when I receive an album for review that challenges my descriptive abilities. My initial encounter with Beak’s latest effort: » was such a thrilling sonic experience that I had absolutely no idea how to encapsulate the sound. I’m a dedicated Portishead fan, so I’ll admittedly check out anything Geoff Barrows does artistic. That band had the same effect on me years ago, when terms like “trip hop” were the catch phrases of the day. I didn’t know what to make of their gloomy, pounding basslines and Beth Gibbons sumptuous yet desperate lyrical delivery but it grabbed me so deeply I must have listened to Dummy (their universally recognized classic) over a hundred times within the first week of purchasing that damn album. Now I’m not saying » (a smartly chosen non-search engine-able album title by the way) is groundbreaking like Dummy, but I’m mesmerized by this album.

electro pop duo Cherub rock floors w/ MoM & DaD

An electro pop duo from Nashville? You bet your ass they know how to bang beats and keep it funky. Cherub are dope (cool, catchy, fun, danceable, whatever other adjectives you’d like to attach to that word). It’s as simple as that. I wish this record wasn’t so much fun, as I would have an easier time writing about it! This is future pop. Yes; unfortunately here I am again, trying to assign a classification to a killer album that we’ve been rockin’ non-stop since we got it! Cherub blend genres so smoothly, from electro beats and acid stabs to head-bobbin’ reggae vibes. This is funky tech house with a dash of Prince and cosmic jazz overtones. READ MORE
