Austra – Habitat Music Video (w/ Katie Stelmanis Interview)

Directed by Matt Lambert, Austra’s music video for “Habitat” weaves together three tales of human connection into one beautifully-lit cinematic narrative. Set in motel rooms that have been transformed into flowery love chambers, “Habitat” is a departure from Lambert’s more sexually-charged works, but maintains a strong focus on casting and persona; with a deliberate eye,...Read...

Owen Pallett – In Conflict Album Review (Domino, 2014)

Phèdre – Golden Age Album Review

Blurred, mildly distorted, catchy and strange, like a reflection of the past viewed through a dirty martini glass, Golden Age is a collection of playful tracks from musicians with a clear idea of what they want to achieve.

MusicfestNW 2013 Live Show Review: Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Mount Eerie, Frank Fairfield
