22016: State of the Device

2016: State of the Device

Jan 3, 2017

Well. This has been quite the year. It has been marked by great tragedy, and great happiness. Wonderful things and terrible things. We lost iconic musicians and influences like Bowie, Prince and Cohen. We ached at the tragedy of the Ghost Ship fire. We cringed at the political state of the nation and the world […]

The 2016 Nully Awards

Jan 3, 2017

It’s been a tough year.  But it was a startlingly good year for music.  I admit that this was a hard list to compile this year, partially because a lot of my favorite music from 2016 was actually released in 2015 (or even earlier!) and I’d just not managed to find out about it until this […]

Oakland. Jesus. I barely have words to express the horror and grief. It hits close to home; one of the victims was someone I met this summer in Calgary. Joel from Golden Donna is from Madison, he’s a stalwart of the local arts scene, and he’s a friend. I can’t even imagine the heartbreak Joel’s […]

David Bowie, 1947-2016.

Jan 11, 2016

It’s weird. I’m at a bit of a loss about what to say about David Bowie’s death. I’ve never been a “superfan”, but I always had a massive amount of admiration for the man. I guess the best I can do is talk about what he and his art meant to me personally.


The 2015 Nully Awards

Dec 28, 2015

The Good Album of The Year Chvrches – Every Open Eye I cannot overstress how much I love this album. Hell, I even like the tracks where Lauren Mayberry doesn’t sing. It is an extremely catchy album from start to finish. Don’t Call it a Comeback award New Order – Music Complete Dogged by rumours […]

The Matrix, Reloaded.

Nov 12, 2015

After futzing with a MiniMoog for a few days, I started thinking to myself “you know, I should really get myself an analog synth. Just to play with.” Then it occurred to me that I already have an analog synth, just to play with, that I never use. About a dozen years ago I bought, […]
