  • Big Boi x Phantogram ‘Big Grams’ Review

    Big Boi and Phantogram’s collaborative effort Big Grams (oh my god that name) sprung forth from Phantogram’s three features on 2012 album Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors. Big Boi’s outlandish references pair well with Phantogram, purveyors of sultry vocals enmeshed with soft, echo-y, electronic takes on R&B. Phantogram is...

  • Notes On: Health

    I don’t understand shoegaze. A former partner put on a My Bloody Valentine record playing at 3/4 speed but it’d been so long since she’d listened to the record that she just figured that’s how its supposed to sound. We’re slow dancing to some demonic shit and it occurs...
