Album Review | Tom Armstrong – The Sky Is an Empty Eye

In 1984, Tom Armstrong was living a regular life in Elmhurst, Illinois. During that time period, Tom had attempted the life of a touring musician. He spent years playing local bars for drinks and tips, but decided to call it quits as it seemed to be going nowhere. He had been offered a partnership at an engineering firm in Dallas, and moved there later that year with his wife. He was a self made man living a wealthy lifestyle, butRead more

The LA proto-punks are back with “The Nest”, a mellow surf-guitar cover of the Jeannie Piersol classic. What might seem like a tough song to tackle is no problem for Pinky Pinky – their sound seems to match perfectly with the original. Sometimes artists try to cover a classic and add their own twist, but end up blatantly disrespecting the original. Fortunately, there’s Pinky Pinky. “The Nest” is the second single they’ve released before their debut album, Pinky Pinky EP, outRead more

Album Review | COLIC – Near

Meghann Dyke and Jimmy Turner are no strangers to persistence. Since January of 2016, the Charlotte, North Carolina duo have released five projects under the moniker COLIC. Within those five releases, the two explore weightless shoe gaze and lo-fi bedroom-pop, diving into the wide world of half baked melodies and licentious song writing. Their relationship is strictly platonic, but after one listen to Near, that seems rather hard to believe. Their singing is sensual, layered with a strong sense of intimacy.Read more

Vic Spencer : The Bleached Breakfast Interview

Vic Spencer is a Chicago grown emcee known for his cosmic flows, lyrical realism, and nearly perfect production. Over the past couple of years, he’s released more music than some rappers do in their entire careers. His persistence is one of the many things that separates him from the rest, and his diversity of musicianship is unlike any other. His sound is reminiscent of Sean Price and KMD-era MF DOOM, but even those comparisons don’t do him justice. As uniqueRead more
