Music: An Addiction?

Music is a pretty big part of every culture. In our Western culture, music is a very central part of it. Everywhere we go, there’s music playing. In bars, cafe’s, iPods, classrooms, movie theaters, plays, houses, rooms, concerts. So it’s no wonder that the youth, my generation, are “all about the music.” A lot of people make their own music, both in the shape of classic musicians, but especially as DJ’s and “mixers” of sorts. That’s all great and all, but one thing this phenomenon has created, which I’d…

MegaPhone by En&is

Wonder what it was like to play amplified music before Thomas Edison roamed the earth? En&is has the answer. This ceramic passive amplifier for the iPhone’s design optimizes the best sound output.

Celebrating The Drive-By Truckers

The Drive-By Truckers have a special place in my heart. I’ve been listening to them since I was about 14. Despite the fact that they hail from The Shoals of Alabama with a blue-collar grit and I come from the heart of the midwest and have can’t change my own oil, I have always identified with them. With 9 studio albums out in the last 12 years and lineup that changes like Parliament-Funkadelic, DBT are one of the most consistent Alt-Country acts of the last 15 years, up there with the likes of Steve Earle,…

John Vanderslice & the Magik*Magik Orchestra’s “Overcoat”

I have not checked in with John Vanderslice since, oh, “Me And My 424.” This is my fault, not John Vanderslice’s. I’ve been kind of busy. Anyway, here’s his new one, and I kind of love it. More about the record: “John Vanderslice’s latest album, White Wilderness, was an ambitious undertaking. For starters, the entire record was captured live in two days at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, Calif. He also made it the most richly orchestrated album of his career, with help from a collective of classically trained musicians called the Magik*Magik Orchestra.” Check it out.
