Q&A: Adrian of Klangkarussell


Chances are you've just read the above subject line and thought, "Who the hell is Klangkarussell?" That's what I thought when their publicist first contacted me about them. But their publicist usually sends me great stuff, so I checked out the Austrian duo's album and immediately...

#songoftheday / REVIEW: BEVERLY: “HONEY DEW”


In addition to having a lovely video, which you're hopefully watching right now above, Beverly's "Honey Dew" is a wonderful earworm that should make you feel all kinds of fuzzy inside and not just because it features lots of raw, fuzzy guitars, like shoegaze played with the volume...

  • f(x): 3집 THE THIRD ALBUM: RED LIGHT
    f(x): 3집 THE THIRD ALBUM: RED LIGHT Release Date:  7/9/14 Label:  SM Entertainment The album opens with the title track, "Red Light," a trippy yet bouncy tune that will probably confuse you the first time you listen to it.

Doesn't really make a whole lot of sense, does it? So, there's one reason not to like Flashe's "Hey You." But, hey you, lots of K-P
