Never Stop Having Fun: The Brasstracks Motto
Rhye’s the type of band where it’s almost impossible to not love them general, but even harder to not love them live.
Gunner Stahl is much more than just a photographer in the music industry - he is a rap mogul that does not even rap.
Yes, it's that time once again. We give you reviews of fresh, hot music that our DJs are vibing with. Won't keep you long here. You know the drill. But make sure to check out Xanthe Pajarillo's interview with Lady Lamb and Stina Chang's Kpop playlist, and Aida Rogers' conversation with The Koreatown Oddity, a fiery mix from DJ Gami, and more!! Enjoy the new tunes, stay safe.
Greetings from music land!
Have you (if you live in the contiguous U.S.) been keeping warm in this rain/wind/polar vortex? How are the kids? That old already?! Golly, how time flies. Anyway, here are the freshest tunes we could find. Enjoy.
What an Ugly, Beautiful World. Recently while visiting a friend at Cal State LA, I found a book in the library with this title. I did not open the book. I didn't think that it could compete with its name.
Is this fair? I definitely judged a book by its cover, so strike one right there. Despite this, I didn't deem the book to be of poor quality. I decided that the sheer poetic quality of the title couldn't be topped. It won.
Music isn't like this. We receive a steady stream of Compact Discs at KXSC, and I can safely say that an album cover has never looked "too good to listen to." In fact, many personal favorites have had the worst graphic design I've ever seen (not that I'm any expert).
All of this is to say: listen to these tunes!!
Ministry of Music truly appreciates your support and continued readership, even in long gaps between publication. Because we no longer have genre directors, we rely on DJ writing, and welcome freelance submissions of your reviews and writing. Please don't hesitate to reach out to Music Writing, even just to start a conversation.
