Last month fell in love with Long Island indie artist Rorie Kelly’s awesome new album Rising Rising Rising, which is why I recently brought you an exclusive interview with her. Following that, Rorie invited me to a concert she was doing, which was to be held in someone’s house. You see, Rorie crowd...

A Conversation with Adam Jensen (Exclusive Interview)

On March 4, 2016  I interviewed Adam Jensen, a Boston native whose debut single, the deliciously dark, alt pop “Sandcastles,” was recently one of our #songoftheday selections. The only other track of his that I’d heard was his forthcoming second single, “Ritual,” which is even more amazing. Normally, I wouldn’t interview someone I’d...

An Exclusive Interview with Adiam

Interview by Michael McCarthy Sweden’s Adiam makes delicous, dark pop that splits the difference between Lykki Li and Marina and The Diamonds, having the starkness of the former and the insanely catchy beats of the latter.

An Exclusive Interview with HXLT, Formerly Hollywood Holt

HXLT is how Chicago’s eclectic musician Holt is spelling his name these days. The reason why is one of the few things I didn’t think to ask him about, but I imagine it’s to make you wonder how it’s supposed to be said, to get you thinking, to ultimately make you remember it....

HOT METAL: CALIBAN: “PARALYZED”


Boy, this one kicks some ass, doesn't it? The video is great, too. It's about a girl running through the forest with a monster following her and hunters following the monster. To say anything more would be to spoil it. Just turn up the...

Later this year Boston born Adam Jensen will release an EP and I'm very excited about it after hearing his just released, red hot single, "Sandcastles." It's a pristine blend of thought-provoking alt pop and serious electro that packs gentle acoustic guitars with sonorous beats that stomp...
