new Chromeo video: “When The Night Falls”

August 16th, 2011 No Comments

Business Casual is my favorite Chromeo album by far; I texted Dave this and he said it was a “mature” effort. Agreed—the Chromies are evolving!

lolla day 2: backstage phoenix and the lovely warpaint

August 8th, 2010 No Comments

highlights of day 2 were plentiful. happy to report that warpaint are as amazing as the buzz they have been generating. they have that haunting, lost in the woods sound mixed with a delicate, dangerous sexiness that seeing them live transforms into something strong and bold and stylish and undone. and lest i forget, fun!
