Artiste 5: Music & Greasy Spoons from the lovable Ephrata

Artiste 5: Music & Greasy Spoons from the lovable Ephrata

I am unabashedly a fan of Seattle’s choral-pop quartet, Ephrata. Their music stirs every bone in the body and makes the mind wander to distant places. It is euphoric. It is stunning. It is fun. It is what music should be. As they prepare to release their second EP this spring (possibly as early as next month), they provided two […]

Mundo 20 – The Lounge Chair Edition

Mundo 20 – The Lounge Chair Edition

The best music is cathartic. Each listener will have their own emotional reaction. This reaction might be sadness or joy; it might be the desire to go for a run or to just curl up in your room and be in the moment; or it might be to mix yourself a cocktail or poor a large glass of your favorite beer.  […]

Mundo 10: Great Tribute Albums

Mundo 10: Great Tribute Albums

Tribute albums, as a rule, are problematic beasts. Everyone wants to pay homage to the amazing musicians who inspired them, which is great. In some cases, the one being paid tribute to was never as “successful” (read “financially successful”) as the acts covering their songs. In some cases, the opposite is true. Either way, tribute albums are tough to produce. […]

Artiste 5 – Vision Fortune’s Dinner Party

Vision Fortune are an experimental, electronic duo from… to be honest, I have no idea where, but I’m going to assume the UK, as they’ve played most of their shows around the Brighton-London-Manchester corridor and their previous album was released on Brighton-based label, Faux Discx. Little is known about the duo, and they don’t like to show their faces in […]
