The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly: Electric Forest 2019 Reviewed

This year’s Electric Forest carried a unique blend of special moments, highlights, and a bevy of problems. Despite some early inconveniences and mishaps, the Forest was her usual, charming self and made some altogether awful moments bearable. This year, I’ve broken my review into pieces, thematically following the good, the bad, and the ugly. Some of this is pretty personal and I pray not an … Continue reading The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly: Electric Forest 2019 Reviewed

Frankles Monthly Mix #9 – Lithium

Welcome to Lithium (Chapter 9) The playlists might be monthly, mostly, but the same cannot be said for posting them here. I even wound up running out of chemicals with a suffix of -on, so I had to figure out how to end the year while staying on/around the periodic table.

For 2017, I’ve opted … Continue reading Frankles Monthly Mix #3

Sunday Sounds: Awaken, My Love

When I first heard Childish Gambino, I didn’t know the guy performing was also the guy who played Troy on Community, Donald Glover. Even after I learned that they were the same person when I saw Donald Glover in cutoff jorts belting out “Heartbeat” on the mainstage at Coachella, it was difficult to reconcile these two very different personas. Eventually, I got used to it. … Continue reading Sunday Sounds: Awaken, My Love

2016 Rundown | Best of 2016 | SoundCloud Playlists | Spotify Playlists 2016 Rundown I don’t like to play favorites, and when it comes to bundling a group of artists or songs together at the end of the year, I absolutely hate ordered lists. I’m not going to say Frank Ocean’s Blond is better than Lido’s Everything, but not as good as Lemonade. The list … Continue reading 2016
