Don’t Let Music Define You


"I was a teenage anarchist, but then the scene got too rigid. It was a mob mentality, they set their rifle sights on me. Narrow visions of autonomy, you want me to surrender my identity. I was a teenage anarchist, the revolution was a lie." - Against Me! This may go against the current mindset of the times we live in, but I insist; don't let music define you. We've all had amazing moments with music.  Whether it be that perfect song that came on for the long drive home, or those magical … [Read more...]

The definitive guide on why you should quit your band


  I haven't been a full member of a band in several years now. ...and I don't regret it one bit. And in the current times we live in, I encourage you to quit your band too; because if anything, it is probably holding you back. We are sold many things in this culture. One of the most invasive yet subtle things we are sold on is not the latest techie gadget or newest fashion, but ideals. Bands are a manifestation of this. The idea of a band is ingrained in our culture so deep that … [Read more...]

Red City Radio: Titles


  We cater to the trip-hop/downtempo/electronic genres of music, but we don't limit it to labels when good music is made. I'm still a fan of all music that moves me. Ever so often, you hear a band with such a raw and emotional sound that it restores your faith in music. I first heard of Red City Radio when they stayed at my house after a show.  To be honest, I was in and out of the bar so much I didn't get a chance to really see them live.  My friends in the local opening band … [Read more...]

The Bygone Era of the Rock Star


"I've always been at the intersection of computers and whatever they can revolutionize." - Jeff Bezos Sometimes, shifts in culture are hard to spot. The digital age, with its shorter attention spans and open floodgates of music has made us lose sight of a passing icon, the Rock Star. What exactly is a Rock Star, though? We could argue so many ways on the subject. Is he the open symbol of rebellion against a society who has lost its way? Or perhaps he is the iconic image of pure hedonism … [Read more...]

The Slow, Eventual Death of Terrestrial Radio


"Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it’s worth" - Baz Luhrmann, Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen) I remember radio being huge, especially growing up in the 90's. I recall moments when I would sit and listen for my favorite bands to play, and usually I wouldn't have to wait long. This of course coming from a time when it seemed that Music itself still had … [Read more...]
