Music
Two shows in, and it’s already clear how rocking this new lineup is. MusicfestNW was the perfect way to build up momentum for our two-week West Coast tour. Recording with Larry Crane at the Ace Hotel and playing our T.L.E. show at Rontoms sparked a good fire to light our way. Unfortunately, Jade couldn’t come out on our little jaunt, so we’re like a three-legged dog pulling some new tricks. Our ...   More

Cut of the Day: Serge Severe feat. Luck-One, "Know the Truth"

Music
Everybody knows the global economy is fucked right now. And anybody with common sense should be troubled by the great disparity between rich and poor in this country. I had a long conversation about this with a smart friend last night. We were sitting outside Valentine's and he summed it up real well: "I think shit is about to get really weird in this country," he said. "There are just too many ...   More

Music
Just four videos today, none of which feature any special effects. Laura Gibson, "Milk-Heavy, Pollen-Eyed"I thought I had tired of all those "playing a song out in public" videos that La Blogothèque wrought years ago, but this one from Mason Jar Music—a creative take on what may be my favorite track from Laura Gibson's forthcoming record, La Grande—is shockingly beautiful. It feels pretty standard ...   More

Cut of the Day: Luck-One, "Can't Get Over You," King of the Northwest Mixtape (Out Aug. 30)

Music
I know, I know, it seems like half of what this blog posts is either or directly or tangentially related to Luck-One. But when you're hot, you're hot, and the MC—who recently re-relocated to Portland after a stint in Seattle—is definitely on fire. Rapping over a supersmooth Maze/Frankie Beverly sample, Luck drops an African proverb before moving on to string bar after devastating, perfectly ...   More
