I’ve been listening to the new Caribou record Suddenly on repeat for about the last two weeks. This is modern electronic music at it’s finest. The standout track on the album is “You and I“. I really dig the delay effect on the high hat/stick sound. He recently did an AMA on Reddit and talked […]
The best skateboarding show on the internet, Jeff Grosso’s Loveletters to Skateboarding, is back with a new episode about the history of the ollie. It completely blows my mind that the ollie was first invented on a vert ramp and not on the street.
National treasure, Bob Weir, has a new side project called Wolf Bros featuring super producer Don Was on bass and Jay Lane from Primus on drums. They sound pretty tight on this recent Tiny Desk concert. Here’s all you need to know about the Wolf Bros: The new trio teams Weir with Don Was, the […]
I traveled to India earlier this month and got to experience Gandhi’s 150th birthday celebration while I was there. The holiday is officially known as Gandhi Jayanti and marked by prayer services and tributes across the country. It felt similar to MLK day in the US where school, work, and government are closed.

Like many people, I’ve been closely following the news about the Conception dive boat fire that killed 34 people off the coast of Santa Barbara earlier this month. This unspeakable tragedy hit especially close to home because I’ve also spent a few nights sleeping on a boat in almost the same exact location. Last spring, […]
Dang, more bad rock and roll news. The world lost one of its great poets this week. Robert Hunter, lyricist for the Grateful Dead died on Monday. This one hits especially close to home because I consider the Grateful Dead to be my third favorite band of all-time (after Ween and The Beatles). From Rolling […]
This week’s album of the week is Lookout Low by Twin Peaks. This album is the pinnacle of modern Rolling Stones-style dad rock, circa 2019. It just came out today and I’ve listened to it about three or four times. The A&R man can probably rightfully say he doesn’t hear a single here, but almost […]
