I've spent the last couple of months really considering what's so appealing to me about art -- and music especially. At some point, this day-in and day-out cycle of listening one album to the next gets exhausting. What am I supposed to be looking for exactly? What exactly is my standard? What's appealing to me? What are the opinions of others and how do they line up with my beliefs? Its these questions I asked as I then preceded to sterilize my experiences with art.

So, I took a step back, and ... read more

I can't help but imagine myself being an admirer of Andy Warhol in 1967 and hearing that he'd be producing an album for this unknown band called The Velvet Underground. One too many syllables to truly run off the tongue, sure, but there's a certain ring to it I suppose. Anyways, I'm sure that cover with the now all too famous banana is probably what would have brought me in (Bro, the banana is pink, dude.) But it's the music that keeps me coming back for second servings. I doubt many followers ... read more

I often feel like break up albums are never dynamic enough. Maybe not so much in instrumentation, but rather in verbal execution. It's almost comical how our media treats a break up like some sort of enigma or a ghost that curses only the cutest couples imaginable. Where we as spectators can only hope that our two love birds can, by some miracle, get back together. In reality, it's a concious choice between two individuals admitting to each other that splitting up is the better option for the ... read more

If it's one thing you can ALWAYS count on Denzel doing, it's dropping a damn good beat. (With a great taste in features at that.) Even at his most tedious, Denzel manages to imbue the backbone of his work with hints of simmering emotion with a dash of melody. It's obvious the guy has a passion for what he's doing in that regard. So much so that I wouldn't be surprised if he took helm as someone's creative director or "beat dealer" for a one-off project some day. (Whatchya buyin'?) ... read more

Hey, I have a song out! When you have the chance to, give it a listen. Haven't added it to AOTY yet, so here the YouTube music video link:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5a0jTc9S10

I wrote this song and filmed the video while in quarantine. Took many inspirations from Chinese folk and alt-country. The concept of the video and song, I'll leave as a surprise (no spoilers of course), plus it's up to interpretation. Hope I can cheer some people up and get everyone together in these uncertain times, enjoy!
