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 […]

What’s On Your Mind?

Nov 18, 2016

We decided it’d be fun to cover one of our favorite songs. It’s a harrowing tale of psychic powers gained in a Cold War experiment gone wrong. Or…something.   It’s pay what you want, so go get it!   What’s On Your Mind (Pure Energy) by Null Device

Songs from “While You were Otherwise Engaged” as reviewed by Jill Sheridan’s son, Detric (age 4). On “Shadow and Flame:” “It’s like a spooky Halloween song because dark shadows surround. It reminds me of that game on the iPad where that one guy says “death approaches” and “death walks behind.” And you don’t know what […]

So, a while ago we were asked to do a theme song for a podcast, for the sci-fi publication “Uncanny Magazine”  And we did. …and the magazine (and associated podcast) just won a 2016 Hugo Award. We can claim absolutely zero credit for the hard work and editing that got the award for Uncanny Magazine, but […]
