There has been lots of good albums floating out in the blogosphere but personally, I’m looking forward to Alt-J‘s This Is All Yours. So of course the song of the week is, “Every Other Freckle” with The Chainsmokers “KANYE” as a close second.

#songoftheweek: My Song 5 ft. A$AP Ferg by HAIM

It’s been one hell of a week. The Kooks released their first single in 3 years, Wale teamed with Long Beach’s Marce Reazon and Pro Reese on his new single and A$AP Ferg adds some sick verses to HAIM’s “My Song 5”.

Haim’s debut album, Days Are Gone, was one of the most impressive albums of 2013. This week, A$AP Ferg takes one of the least Haim-esque…

#songoftheweek: “Hunger of the Pine” by alt-J

Today, Alt-J released a new song from their upcoming album, This Is All Yours. Almost 2 years ago I fell in love with their debut album, ‘An Awesome Wave’. With every song being as powerful as the last, ‘An Awesome Wave’ was nothing short of indie-rock perfection.

Alt-J keeps the relaxed yet powerful tones on their new single “Hunger Of The Pine”,…

#SongOfTheWeek – They Don’t Know by White Sea

There were so many great songs on my radar this week that I had a hard time just choosing one as my favorite. After much deliberation between Chris Malinchak, RHODES and White Sea, I finally decided to settle on “They Don’t Know” by White Sea.

As a huge fan of M83, White Seaautomatically held more weight in my decision. Morgan Kibby is on one of my…

The Hunt: Why Vinyl?

The Hunt: Why Vinyl? A Short Documentary #longlivevinyl

the hunt

Since the start of my collection, I’ve been asked this question many times, “Why Vinyl?” My answer is always some variation of “It sounds so much better” or “I love the artwork” and if I’m lazy, “I just really like it, ok?” But as I learn more about the “vinyl-revival” movement, I’m beginning to wonder what’s causing it’s popularity.

Early this year, Billboardreleased an article summarizing last…

BONOBO @ THE ALBERT HALL IN MANCHESTER

the hunt

For 40 years the Albert Hall in Manchester, a grade II listed Wesleyan chapel, has laid dormant and unnoticed. That is until Trof, the people behind two other fantastic venues in the city the Gorilla and the Deaf Institute, renovated the dilapidated building in to a stunning music hall. When the chance to see one of my favourite artists Bonobo at this stunning new venue came along, the tickets…

BECK - morning phase - Album Review

Adam reviews Morning Phase by Beck on THE HUNT #music

the hunt

This album has caused quite a stir since coming out in February. It was released in very limited numbers on vinyl and has quickly become a collectable item. Many have appeared on eBay and some stores sold out just on pre orders alone. I only managed to get a copy myself because a colleague at work ordered one online as a fail safe in case he couldn’t get one in store only for both avenues to come…
