Modern anxiety and brinksmanship have reached peak levels it seems, and two recent albums have captured our current balance of hope and worry perfectly for me.
Both released earlier this year, Black Moth Super Rainbow’s “Panic Blooms” and Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s “Sex & Food” really do it for me. Each under their own power is good, but I think they’re better together. They’re the alternate soundtrack to San Junipero. They’re a Black-Eyed Soul opera in three acts.
I’ve done the work for you, if you wanna hear my impressions click “read more”->

All-vinyl show this week!
It’s been a couple months. There’s dust on the mixer, my finger’s heavy on the FX knobs. I’m working out the kinks, trying out new things. Keeps you young.
I won’t be winning any gold medals for this one but you can hear fresh tunes from The Rubs, Buffalo Killers, All Them Witches, The Evil Usses, Bonehawk & JuJu. There’s also a heaping helping of vintage soul and rock to help stave off the weight of our world’s depravity.
I’ll be spinning vinyl as Freelance Fiend at El Cortez in Bushwick this Thurs 10/19. Come hang out if you like. Click the flier for more details…

Back in early 2013 I started my live stint on BBOX Radio and met, among many creative and cool people, these two badasses. Over the years Tony and Frank have filled in, co-hosted and teamed up with me live and since we’re all on different stations now we decided to team up again for an all-vinyl summer session.
Wanna join in? All you gotta do is attune to our old stomping grounds, BBOXRadio.com, on Saturday July 15th. We’ll be spinning all sorts of wax in the summer heat, starting at 10pmEST and going til we get tired.

Bad weather’s bearing down on NYC this week so I’m bringing the psychedelic vibes to cushion the blow. This set starts out with a shout out to badass women then heads into the atmosphere with some extended tracks and FUZZ FOR DAYS!
Featuring the premiere of the new White Mystery single plus brand new music from Stuyedeyed, Baked, The Black Doldrums, Dire Wolves, Sundays & Cybele, & the Black Delta Movement. And of course the blend of vintage and modern fuzz you’ve come to expect.
Bundle up, put your back to the wind and prepare to be blown away!
