An Ode To YOUTH// In Defense of Saint Slumber’s Early EP’s & a Chat with the Menace Himself, Joshua Perna!

"You need to make the decision whether you're going to always be chasing the carrot, or if you're going to stop and look at what you've done, and spend some time to congratulate yourself [...]"- Joshua Perna Listen up, music fans--especially those of you that like Saint Slumber-- This is urgent. A few weeks ago, it was rumored that two EPs—YOUTH//1 and YOUTH//2--were going to be wiped from the Internet. https://twitter.com/sntslmbr/status/1519366606438248449 -cracks knuckles- LISTEN UP, PERNA.

“Inspiration Leads Me Everywhere”: Chats with Joshua Perna [Saint Slumber, King Leer]

Attention: if you've read "Ode To Youth//... Joshua Perna" in full, then you can skip this piece. This article contains the same interview & is for everyone who just wants to dive straight into the interview with Joshua Perna. I don't blame you, of course! You know what you want... and he's got some really great points on all things dealing with creative burnout, working as an independent musician, artistry, social media and more! "While you might not be spending money, you are. You're spending your time. And that is not a renewable resource. Your energy is finite."Joshua Perna [Saint Slumber / King Leer] What initially started this feature was something that Joshua Perna had said in a Discord group chat message a few months before this talk of YOUTH// cancellati...

Breaking Waves: Just Connor & “Hyperstrike”

Considering it has been almost exactly a year to the day since I first spoke with Just Connor about his music, I think it's only right to do this first issue of Breaking Waves about him... Especially since today is the day that the first Just Connor track of 2022 drops! Please go ahead and stream "Hyperstrike"-- I promise you, it will send you on a gorgeous sonic journey. It's what I've had on repeat all morning. By the time you reach the second drop, you will realize that no one does wave music quite like JC. That's what I realized a year ago, and have realized time and time again, on my "journey through wave". I say it like that because that's what this has felt like--a journey. Ever since that first conversation with JC, it has felt like I've been on a journey to discover w...

Happy 4/20… AKA Deadcrow Release Day! Stream “Solar” for Some Premio Vibes & Seriously Good Times.

If you're looking to explore new heights today, may I direct you to the perfect soundtrack? Deadcrow just released his newest track, "Solar", and it is simply fantastic. Check it out and get yourself ready for one hell of a ride and some out-of-this-world vibes. "Solar" on YouTube via UKF: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2kfsu6quoXE This track is one of those IDs that was always a favorite of mine (I lost my absolute shit hearing it live at Liquid Ritual's "conference" in London just a couple weeks ago-- but more on that later), and yet I never exactly knew what song it was... And now I finally--finally--can hear it in full. And it has been on loop. I just keep going back to it; I can't help it. Meet Deadcrow, the Wave Artist Taking Ove...

[Interview] Shut Up & Play Some Pop Punk: A Chat with Mikei Gray of The Frst

Given the fact that that the When We Were Young festival sold out in mere hours (and now has not only a 2nd, but a 3rd date), it shouldn't be surprising that pop punk is here to stay. It certainly doesn't surprise Mikei Gray of The Frst, whose latest single, "Pop Punk Song", captures the mood of an entire generation in a simple, yet catchy way.   So, to quote The Frst, allow me to "shut the fuck up and play some pop punk" for you: "Pop Punk Song" by The Frst: streaming now. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P21z4WWp5w4&feature=youtu.be My favorite thing about The Frst's "Pop Punk Song" is that while it's got that catchy, cathartic chorus that's just begging to be screamed at a show, it's also campy and self-aware. At first, I...

Hikikomori by Nick Neutronz: a Poignant Digital Soundscape for a Future None of Us Imagined.

Welcome to the year 2022. We made it. It's the future. The 2020s--the roaring 20's 2.0: flying cars edition. Or something... Well, it's not the future any of us saw coming--except, perhaps, for Nick Neutronz, through his dark & enchanting track, "Hikikomori". First released on Audius on January 4th, the track is now available for streaming everywhere. "Hikikomori" is more than just a New Year's single: it is a journey into another world, one that eerily mirrors our own. "In February of 2019 I did a dive into "Hikikomori". A year and some change later, and we were all driven inside with no sense of when we'd be outside again. This track was a fantasy, a future urban landscape where all of us were stuck to our screen, where the outside world was a hostile hustle of scarcit...
