What’s (Not) Cooking with Lewis Hurrell (Volume 2): Green Goddess Salad Dressing

A few weeks back Lewis Hurrell invited us into his kitchen to show us the secrets of his raw chocolate which he paired nicely with his synth-pop tune “Ordinary Life.” Not one to rest on his raw keys, Lewis is again making things happen in the kitchen and the control room. In the kitchen, Lewis continues to not cook. This time his rawness takes the […]

Listen: Curried tracks from herMajesty, Strangeheart, KNDR and Osca

Nothing conjures up steaming bowls of quinoa stew like: JP, lead singer of NYC’s herMajesty, has always had a thing about finding beauty in small little snippets of time and space and putting them to music. Each single seems to push, if I may borrow from the band name, the “majesty” of his (and his bandmates) preservation of these moments farther and farther along the continuum of emotion. Deeper and […]


Food Pairing 101: What Goes With Veganomicon’s Baked Potato and Greens Soup?

Scene 1 The kitchen. Tender Branson enters from the left side. He is visibly agitated and vigorously waving his hand in front of his noise. Tender: Good goddamn man. Why does it smell like fish in here? I’m going to have to remedy that. Tender shuffles around in some cabinets and pulls out a big pot. He grabs a copy of Veganomicon from his bookshelf and then […]


Artist’s Cookbook: Fish Balls by Ívar Páll Jónsson (1000th Post)

“Fish don’t usually have balls, but this is an Icelandic recipe for fish balls.” -Ívar Páll Jónsson In his book 101 Brilliant Quips From an Icelandic Songwriter (not yet written but I assure you it is coming) Icelandic artist Ívar Páll Jónsson provided us with the above quote. This is an important tidbit because, in a bit of an informal survey I just conducted at my local grocery […]


Cook: Curried Quinoa and Tomato Stew

Sometime in the mid-2000′s people began expelling their former lover gluten from the bedroom. They were sick and tired of the name calling, the fat jokes and the physical swelling of their belly (gluten seems to become physical when it gets angry). While still recovering from the break-up, the complete protein of quinoa stealthily began seducing everyone hoping to take gluten’s place. It worked. Now, despite the fact […]


Baker’s Dozen: Interview with CREO

Sydney’s CREO are the type of band that likes to let their music (and the critics) do the talking for them. You won’t find them, even on their own social media sites, shamelessly plugging how amazing they are. Instead you will find a descriptor along the lines of “CREO are four dudes from Sydney who do their take on rock and roll.” Bam! Microphone drops to the […]

Listen: Emotional Charity from Nai Harvest, Gazzo and Y LUV, Gateway Drugs and APES

Pair a cardiologist’s best friend with some of these heart healthy tunes: Nai Harvest avoids all fake butter replacements and goes with the real thing on their new single “Buttercups”. The title of the Sheffield duo’s new song may make you imagine flowers and fields of green but within a few seconds you realize that “Buttercups” is more city than country. I say this because […]
