Tunesday: Wake Me Up When September Ends

It’s October, finally.  Well, last night, Berkeley chose one hell of an interesting way to wake us up when September ends.  Please, a little more subtle next time. September in general is a shitty month.  The original hit by Green Day was about Billy Joe Armstrong’s father having died when

Tunesday: Blue Suits & Blue Meth

This is right around the time of year in 2012 that PSY’s massive hit “Gangnam Style” broke the Guinness world record for most liked video on Youtube, surpassing “Party Rock Anthem” by LMFAO.  I’ll admit I don’t listen to much Korean music, particularly K-Pop despite my Korean-American heritage.

Tunesday- Femme Fatalented

Tunesday: Hip-Hop BBQ

Ah, Independence Day. Otherwise known as the only day of the year where you can wear as many tacky combinations of red, white and blue as you want, grease up that George Foreman grill, day-drink and barbeque to your heart’s (or liver’s) delight and yell “FUCK YEA, AMURRICA” to all

Tunesday: Dance Party, Anyone?

It was 2 a.m. on a weekday night when I decided to take a short break from Yeezus and throw an impromptu solo dance party in my pajamas. This week’s selection of songs turn up the energy and take on playful, pop-y sounds with a dash of R&B, electro and

Tunesday: Better Late Than Never

Editor’s Note: We forgot to publish Tunesday on Tuesday, but it’s summer — you probably lost track of the days, right? First off, you should know that this week’s installment is wholly influenced by two things: the lingering effects of Danny Brown’s stellar show at the New Parish (shameless plug:

Tunesday

Hey, I’m Ephraim and I’ll be doing Tunes on Tuesday from now on (“Tunesday” to condense the title a bit). My goal while I’m doing this is to find new music for myself and perhaps help you find new music that you end up loving. More than anything, I welcome
