Sam Falls Pixel Crunches EFG's Singing Bridges

Music // Monday, July 28, 2014
Sam Falls’ video for EFG’s “Singing Bridges” delivers masterfully deconstructed slices of sewn together Spaghetti Westerns while psych-rockers Imaad Wasif (vocals/guitar), Josh Garza (drums) and Tom Biller (bass) channel classics of their own: pristine echoes of Bowie, The Cure, Blue Cheer and Jesus & Mary Chain, all woven meticulously into the fuzzed-out track. For the world's dystopian love songs, the sounds of EFG, coupled with Falls’ manipulation of iconic, ‘deinterlaced’ analog films, does not disappoint. So adjust your speakers accordingly and watch the Technicolor trip to the badlands here.

Early Days by Paul McCartney

Music // Friday, July 25, 2014
Forming a band usually starts with a friend ready to jam, ready to mess around to find the right sounds that mesh, but the members don’t always mesh. Through the ups and downs, a musical camaraderie forms and a band blossoms. Paul McCartney expresses this in Early Days, describing his bond with John Lennon all the while hoping to inspire all young musicians in the spirit of music and expression.

Doug Johnson for Judas Priest

Music // Wednesday, July 16, 2014
Back in the 1980s, Doug Johnson did some fantastic artwork for 3 Judas Priest album covers: 1982's "Screaming for Vengeance," 1984's "Defenders of the Faith," and 1986's "Turbo." For some reason, this morning, when we woke up, we just thought about how rad all this art was, and wanted to see if anybody else remembers these. Doug Johnson... dude had metal down.
