NMF: Week of July 4th – 10th, 2020

Missing Live Music? Me too. Let’s talk about it.

I will be the first to say I’ve had it very, very good when it comes to the ability to see live shows in the past year and a half. Not only has the greater New England area been packed full of artists, big and small, but they are all in relatively accessible venues atContinue reading “Missing Live Music? Me too.

BEST OF JUNE: TOP 5 TRACKS OF THE MONTH

5.) Speed Run – CloudNone CloudNone dropped his Lights Out EP this month and a project I stepped into with little expectations ended up blowing me away. The second I heard the chopped up piano sample at the beginning of the song, I knew “Speed Run” was going to be a special track. This groovyContinue reading “BEST OF JUNE: TOP 5 TRACKS OF THE MONTH”

Honoring the Timeless and Influential Black Contributions to Music

In honor of many of the recent protests and Black Lives Matter movements taking hold around the globe, and simply because it is a great topic for a brief blog post, I want to take a moment to pay homage to some of the greats of our time and long before it in the musicalContinue reading “Honoring the Timeless and Influential Black Contributions to Music”

A Quick Tribute to Little Richard – A Style that Stands the Test of Time

I’ve been bad about posting lately – much to do at work and surprisingly little time afterwards. Somehow these quarantine months have been flying by. Hopefully it’s a sign there is light at the end of the tunnel. Best advice I can give for these troubled times: keep yourself busy. Read. Exercise.

BEST OF APRIL: TOP 5 TRACKS OF THE MONTH

5.) Someone Else – Rezz & Grabbitz This collab between Rezz and Grabbitz is a match made in heaven. I admittedly had been disappointed in a few of Rezz’s previous releases, but this track destroyed any doubts I had. Rezz’s industrial influence mixed with Grabbitz’s dark punk guitar licks create a “deadmau5-esque” banger that hasContinue reading “BEST OF APRIL: TOP 5 TRACKS OF THE MONTH”

Kurt’s Favorite Albums

I tried my best to organize this in a proper ranking. The Top 4 are pretty set in stone, but my album rankings change depending on the day. Alas, see for yourself my selections and come find and fight me if you disagree… 1.) Worlds – Porter Robinson (2014) 2.) Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts ClubContinue reading “Kurt’s Favorite Albums”

Kinkead’s Favorite Albums

Kurt and I saw the Bill Clinton records meme and had to make a post about it. Choosing favorites is always a huge challenge for me. When it comes to things I love, I tend to get indecisive about what is really “best” when I’m looking at a group of favorites. The thing about musicContinue reading “Kinkead’s Favorite Albums”

New Music Friday (April 10th): Goose, Gorillaz and Anderson Paak

Hello my people. I’d imagine your week went as strange as mine given our current situation under quarantine. Thank god we still have good jams out there to keep us occupied and feeling good. To be honest, been completely slammed with work to the point where I had to delay this a day, but it’sContinue reading “New Music Friday (April 10th): Goose, Gorillaz and Anderson Paak”
