If Music Videos Could Kill, 2013 Would Be Summer of Sam

If Music Videos Could Kill, 2013 Would Be Summer of Sam

Music videos are as exciting as they ever were. They’re killing it right now as if it were Summer of Sam. The platform has changed (pouring one out for you, MTV), but the quality has not. Month after month I find myself gawking at a barrage of colors, filters, and the occasional narrative (Spike Jonze,...

OUTPUT is the Best Club in NYC: So Put Your Fucking Phone Down and Dance

The past few Thursday nights have been some of the best nights of 2013 as of recent. No it’s not weed or booze that’s making them stick out either — it’s actually OUTPUT, and I swear I wasn’t paid to write this.  yeah, OUTPUT. Of all my years in New York/Brooklyn, more than 10 years total, I’ve...
Jay-Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail: A Track by Track Album Review

Jay-Z’s Magna Carta Holy Grail: A Track by Track Album Review

So I guess what Jay-Z is trying to say is, “When you’re a 43-year-old married man with a baby and a wife in tow, there’s just only so much ya can rap about…ya know?” Here’s a small track x track review of Magna Carta…Holy Grail. Track #1: Holy Grail (feat. Justin Timberlake) I put everything...

BPM LWR LVL: HELIX, The Drum, Nire, and more 6/29

 BPM LWR LVL 6/29 at Tribeca Grand was turnt all the way up. The dance floor was hot as hell and literally every kinda person you could think of was in attendance. LOL, from white dudes in flip flops/”jesus sandals” to chicks drinking str8 liquor from the bottle. Haha. I had a fucking blast. The...

In Light Of The Magna Carta Holy Grail Album Art, We Pick Our Favorite Rap Covers

Earlier this week, Jay-Z unveiled the album art for his upcoming Magna Carta Holy Grail and it looked pretty fucking bland for such a grandiose musician. That is, until he released the actual art today next to the real Magna Carta in Salisbury Cathedral (meta mind melt). Kanye, Jay’s de facto Bizarro cohort, has embraced the minimalist...

Playlist: Comedowns and Rubdowns

Playlist: Comedowns and Rubdowns

I took some MDMA a few hours ago and now I’m having the inevitable come-down that I signed up for when I made the (correct) decision to mess around with some substances. It feels like I’m a robot, and typing is the only thing distracting me from that Dementor-friendly soul evaporation process. All I want...
