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 […]


Cook: Fennel Fritter with “Bacon” and Ranch Dressing

What a weird Saturday. There I am lazing about on the couch watching Steve Harvey make a mockery of my favorite game show from my childhood, Family Feud, when I took a bite of my vegan curds and whey. Just as the two battling families were about to try their hand at putting themselves in the shoes of a hundred random Americans I passed out. […]


Old Faves with New Games: We Were Promised Jetpacks, Work Drugs and The Royal Alberta Advantage

Since this dish was years in the making, I needed some bands who have also been around a while. Here are three Write Click Cook Listen favorites who have new releases: Ever since I heard “Quiet Little Voices” I have considered We Were Promised Jetpacks to be one of my favorite indie rock bands. They have a slightly rougher edge that meshes well with their introspective […]


Cook: Chinese Noodle Salad

I read somewhere that there are only three things that would survive a nuclear holocaust: roaches, gonorrhea and Chinese noodles. I’m not sure what makes the first two unique (other than they are survivors), but I have to think the reason the noodles would survive is because they are overloaded with the unholiest ingredients known to man. There’s processed food and then there is Chinese […]


Food Flavored Song of the Day: Reload by Late Guest At the Party

My current obsession is Kaleisia Tea Lounge’s Matcha Limeade. This is a seasonal drink that has a bit of caffeine, sweet and sour all swirled together in a blissful mixture of summer coolness. I’ve heard all the comments about four dollar coffees that people love to make and a small version of this drink clocks in at three plus dollars. Because of that, I try […]


Food Flavored Song: Michelada by Cold Blood Club

It’s a bit hard for me to tell but I swear to god that Cold Blood Club’s new single “Michelada” drops the line “did someone spike your Jamaica” a number of times. If that’s the case, this track will easily become J-Fur’s new fav. Since her study abroad trip to Mexico, circa 2000, she has searched high and low for a version of Jamaica that […]


Listen: Covers by Beta Wolf and Femme, Originals by Action Item and Lyke Giants

In one hand I’ve got a pile of walnuts pretending to be taco meat. In the other I’ve got: Beta Wolf pretending to be the Pixies. Take the original, dial up the instrumental intensity, throw in a little bit of atmospheric vocals, add some emphasis to koi koi and you’ve got a tidy little 10,000 calorie salad as we wait for Beta Wolf’s main course. They have […]
