Listen: Party Out Back Courtesy of Cygnets, Work Drugs and Air Traffic Controller

Of tempura sweet potatoes, sushi, mutating mustaches and: I’m not sure a death march can sound both haunting and happy, beautiful and terrifying at the same time. If it could, it would probably be in the same vein as Cygnets single “Gallows”. This one comes from the band’s 2014 release, Isolator. A stunning visual delivery of the track: It’s hard to see an out of control […]


Cook: Tempura Sweet Potato Sushi

I noticed the barfly as soon as we walked in to our favorite sushi laboratory. He was sitting at the counter ogling the sushi rolls that the bandanna clad chef was furiously preparing. The counter man was rather non distinct (middle aged, chubby and balding a bit) except for the creepy handlebar mustache that adorned his upper lip. That thing was totally uncalled for in the kind […]


Food Pairing 101: What Goes with Guided by Vices by The Dirty Nil?

A week ago The Dirty Nil sent their new 7 inch into the world via Fat Wreck Chords. The album features the previously paired “Cinnamon” (listen to that one with a pile of Fried Apple Pancake Rings) and its B-Side “Guided by Vices.” B-Side? Shit…if this is a B-Side then the Dirty Nil hasn’t gotten the message that a B-Side is supposed to be a throw away, […]


Listen: Just Beetin’ It with Sea Legs, Eric Lilavois, Lincoln Jesser and The Tallest Tree

There’s something inherently wrong with beet ravioli. It just isn’t right, in the head. That means it would pair fabulously with: Byron Knight, frontman for Central Coast indie band Sea Legs, traveled through the US back in 1998. While on this trip he had one of those personal encounters that will stay with a person forever. At some point Byron crossed paths with an elderly crippled […]


Cook: Beet Ravioli

One of my most vivid memories from the preteen era of my life is gallivanting through the metropolis of Newville, Pennsylvania with a large spray paint can in hand. On any surface I could find, and there were like five buildings in Newville so I had quite a selection, I painted my favorite slogan, “You don’t turn your back on one of your own” (yes Mister Policeman, I did […]


Where We Eat: Green Mint Asian Grill

I’m not one to be bogged down by the supernatural or anything but a few weeks ago I was at one of those parties where everyone wears a face cover and chants strange things into their neighbor’s ear when this lady in dark satin floated over and whispered  “Green Mint Asian Grill” so that only I could hear it. Before I could catch her name, she vanished into […]

Listen: Date Night Mix Featuring Young Rising Sons, Zella Day, Jakil and Pimpton

Feeling a date night? Put these tracks into your high speed blender and bust them into pudding: I’ll be completely honest, Little Daylight and I are pretty much on the same wavelength. If they write an original song, chances are I’ll be dancing with it for weeks. If they choose to remix a song, I usually like it. Their remixes have turned me on to a […]
