Biorhythmic Pastiche: Halsey’s Nightmare

An American Girl dives into her memory’s museum, dreaming a scheme within a scene … gaze into the gallery, and open your lens wide; when we recognize our body as the battlefield, so too we realize the weapon of our mind … A nation’s mythology remastered as a people’s history for the record, and her…

popiter dictum: Rihanna’s “We Found Love” ft. Calvin Harris

Self-prophesying redemption, epoch snap … and yes, it is the Mayan manifesto: the light at the end of that tumultuous tunnel… ***   … love and trial, living libations of modern bacchanalia sowing seeds of spectacular carnage … the visceral kaleidoscope of that insatiable pursuit for primal preeminence … so young the guise… so dazed, so confused……

Circuit 2011: Little Boots’ Shake Until Your Heart Breaks

So, spinning retrospective… the solar cycle rounds a sampling of rotations past two-thousand Anno Domini … from where I vantage, London calls, snow falls, and once upon a December nocturne stroll, cobblestone rumbles, and so I stumble upon a warehouse happening diffusing pure tempo … The Siren: Victoria “Little Boots” Hesketh The Sound: Neo-Disco Electro-synth…

Déjà Verse: “Tom’s Diner,” Giorgio Moroder + Britney Spears

Good music speaks volumes… rather than impose analysis, step back and expose linguistic artistry… listen, look, and linger in fantastic rhythmic reality: lyrically speaking “Tom’s Diner” – Deja Vu (2015)   da-da-doo-do da-da-doo-do da-da-doo-do da-da-doo-do da-da-doo-do da-da-doo-do da-da-doo-do da-da-doo-do da-da-doo-do da-da-doo-do da-da-doo-do da-da-doo-do I am sitting In the morning At the diner On the corner…

re:code.fm :: Madonna’s Confessions on a Dance Floor

In 2005, Madonna dropped the world like a discoball. She created one of the decade’s best albums as she had created her entire career: by producing a self-context so great that it becomes the world’s Pop conscience. If “the main problem with 2008’s Hard Candy was that Madonna seemingly didn’t care,” and “with American Life…

Crate Dig: The De Jure, The De Facto, The Glory of Britney Spears’ Tribal Gospel

So… in the years and miscellany of months since Britney Jean… many dramatic learning scenarios have unfolded… for the shown world, and both a one Miss Britney Jean Spears, and mutually exclusively, myself #swiperitsnotaboutyou #iknow #itsalwaysbeenaboutdora #yesiknow #everypopstarisdora #igetit #keepitmoving #peoplearetryingtoreadhere #anyway Much like Britney Jean, said Spears nor myself have anything to prove in…

A.V Hub: Lady Gaga’s “The Edge of Glory”

“The Edge of Glory:” It’s an edge, and it’s glorious – and that’s all we need to say about that. I love this video. When I saw this video, some less fatigued part of me wanted to run across the Brooklyn Bridge and upload footage of said jog to YouTube #literally – some more juvenile,…

re:code.fm :: Lupe Fiasco’s The Cool

Whatever it was that N.E.R.D. was in search of: Lupe Fiasco found with his 2007 release The Cool. What is Cool? Cool is a living contradiction. Lupe adopts the nature of the cool, through and through; rather than avoid the gilded crux of our modern phantasm, Fiasco clutches to it like an insomniac and the…

re:code.fm :: La Roux’s La Roux

The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill painted a music scene reflective of urban culture on the brink of a new millennium; eleven years later we – as a culture and creative class – had evolved and devolved from that reality. We had since found our souls in the synthetic, and were given our new sonic aesthetic…

Circuit 2012: Azealia Banks’ “1991”

So, spinning retrospective… the year is 2012, lesson of the season: by George, the Mayans had it all kinds of right — and said solar cycle projected a sonic renaissance of apocalyptic proportions. Let’s revisit the space, and sample a serve, for gold time’s sake … So, the year is 2012 … Yes, even amidst…

YinMotif: Janelle Monáe’s Dirty Computer

Dirty Computer … this synesthetic venture through the ArchAndroid’s akashic record, despite any and all attempts at erasure, remains an impenetrable audio-visualized experience of the rogue post-robotic mediatrix’s life lived … to the fullest extralegal extent of natural order. This record, feels like excavation, reveals by vivisection, and establishes through manifest reverie, Monáe’s living mnemonic…
