Big Spider’s Back – “Warped” Music Video

Just sharing some jolly good locally-grown experimental psych-pop with you, courtesy of Big Spider’s Back and director Karla Santos. The video for “Warped” captures psychedelic pop in its essence, really, with radiant colors swirling in and out of consciousness, melding with shapes and figures reminiscent of those formed when Polaroids burn or planets collide.

The Happy Hollows – Bunnies And Bombs Album Review

The newest release from his Chicago band Essex Chanel, Love is Proximity, is studio album number eight — not including the many EPs, side projects, unofficial releases, and extracurricular musical endeavors Wiggins is a part of....Read...

People Who Do Noise (2009) Documentary Film Review

Noise: a genre that is difficult for the average person to appreciate. However, when one sees its creation firsthand or creates it oneself, noise becomes a type of musical art that takes on its own appeal and meaning. In People Who Do Noise, noise becomes associated with faces, through interviews with dozens of Portland noise...Read...
