Tag Archives: lo-fi

Lo-fi, an abbreviation for “low fidelity,” describes a recording process that contains technical flaws such as distortion, hum, noise, or limited frequency response. It is used in contrast to the audiophile term “high fidelity” or “hi-fi,” which refers to stereo equipment that accurately reproduces music without distortion, unwanted frequencies, or resonance. Lo-fi may be intentional due to limitations in analog recording or processing techniques, or purposely avoided for aesthetic reasons. (Wikipedia)

The use of the keyword “lo-fi” on REDEFINE will encompass its role in music, film, and multimedia.

And while it’s certainly not the most polished album, Eldorado EP offers plenty in the way of unabashed realism and guitar free rock and roll. With each track...Read...

Grooms – Prom Album Review (w/ Full Album Stream)

When it comes to putting a label on their particular brand of indie rock, Brooklyn-based Grooms are mystifyingly indescribable.

Is Tropical – “The Greeks” Music Video

Is Tropical blends old school cartoon and video game with real life in this video where boys will be boys. The headshots are okay because it’s animated violence, kids, and fake chemistry sets with briefcases full of money and boxes labeled with “drogue” are just fine, too!
