#songoftheday = Laure Shang – “I Love You”


If you like twisted, noir electro-pop then you're going to be drooling all over yourself listening to Laure Shang's richly-layered new single, which is surely the bleakest-sounding song called "I Love You" ever written.  It's also my favorite song to be released so far from her...

JAPAN CALLING: AN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH FEMM

CONCERT REVIEW: ELOHIM AT THE SINCLAIR, CAMBRIDGE, MA: 10/11/16

This past Tuesday night, October 11th, 2016, I was fortunate to catch the young woman who calls herself Elohim live. The mysterious singer/songwriter/electronic musician is currently out on tour with EDEN, but I’d had insomnia the night before and was too tired to stay and check out his set. I was admittedly unfamiliar...
