Food Pairing 101: What Goes Well With a Bloody Beet Burger?

There are some pretty fabulous vegan burgers out there. Like this crunchy eggplant monster or this stuffed tempeh version. Some of these burgers have a very convincing meaty texture that can almost stand toe-to-toe with their carcassy brethren. Others have a taste that can fool even the most hardcore meat eater. A few even have the outside appearance (you know the look, the one that fools you into thinking […]

Food Pairing 101: What Goes Well With Beth Thornley’s New EP?

Magnolia and Gabrielle. Britney Spears in Spring Breakers. Pixies in Fight Club. Tom Petty in Jerry Maguire. Every once in a while a film director perfectly pairs a song with the scene that is playing out before your eyes. It is such a flawless union that song and clip cease to exist separately. They become forever intertwined, you can’t have one without the other. A […]

Listen: Turn to Crime With A Naked Pistol in an AWOLNATION

When you find yourself straight out of onions and you turn to disguising cabbage as such, turn on a bit of this: Rising from the wreckage of his former band, the Detroit styled garage pop trio Awesome Color, Derek Stanton has taken his talents to the world of crime. Not literal crime. He’s not selling drugs to school children or robbing televisions from the local pawn shop and […]

Cook: Onion Famine Soup

“It’s like Adelaide, circa August 1951 up in here.” I sat bolt upright in bed. What the f*** was my brain talking about? I’m an American, I barely know the history of my own country. Hell if I know anything about the history of a continent located on the whole other side of the world. I tried to communicate this to my brain. I had […]

Food Pairing 101: What Goes Well with E-Dubble’s No Rest for the Wicked

Most importantly, wicked never rests. With that being said here are just a few wicked recipes I would easily recommend. Wicked witches with sombreros, Boston Baked Beans, Wicked […]

Listen: A Double Shot of Wise Girl in Front of Singles by Baby Guru and IYES

Transforming baked beans into something more than just a plop and drop requires a bit of this: I’ve heard Abby Weitz, front woman for Power pop trio Wise Girl, called “a female Rivers Cuomo” (Electric Feast). When you pair her powerful vocal delivery of lyrics ripped straight from the personal lives of the band with power chords and driving beats, I can see why this […]

Cook: Baked Bean Croquettes with BBQ Sauce and Pineapple Coulis

For a few seconds every time the metal wheel of the can opener curls around the lip of a tin of baked beans I think about how awesome it would be to give those beans a fate that is so much more than just dumping them in a pan to warm up. I reminisce about the old college try, when I used to dress baked […]
