Darren Williams — better known to the masses as Star Slinger — has been putting the hurt on some remixes for quite some time now. He first caught my attention with his version of Drake and the Weeknd’s “Crew Love” and I haven’t taken my eyes off him since. Today he released a new original “Free,” and […]

What do you get when you throw Yeasayer, Passion Pit, and Friendly Fires in a blender, then FedEx that same blender to Melbourne, Australia? You get Strange Talk, that’s what you get. The band, formed back in February 2010, has received a healthy amount of buzz from their first single, “Climbing Walls,” which effortlessly channels […]

I had been meaning to write this post for months now, but I can’t think of a more perfect time than now to write about Beau Young, a.k.a. DC’s own Young Prince.

I promise you wont […]

Love him or hate him, Wale is basically the only hope D.C. hip hop has to make a mark on the national scene. So yeah, his debut LP was a big disappointment. Yeah, he’s somewhat unwilling to accept some blame for his album’s failure (you’d understand if you follow his twitter). Most of his mixtapes, […]

Put me into the category of people who had become a bit bored with the same drab, predictable plot lines in Entourage. Eric has nothing going on that’s worth putting on film, Johnny is borderline annoying, and Turtle couldn’t begin to dream about sleeping with this. One thing the show always had going for it, […]

So, as many of you know, this site gets its name from quite possibly the most epically beautiful song of all time; Sufjan Stevens’ “Chicago.” While Sufjan himself has remixed his own masterpiece (see: Easy Listening Version, Acoustic Version, etc.), nothing truly held a candle to the original. That still holds true, but we can’t […]
