not your shadow 700

by Logan Lowrey-Rasmussen

In the Phoenix music scene I am always fascinated by artists who push themselves visually and add components not normally related to their genre. Although costumed performers and DJs can be found within the electronic music industry as a whole, there’s many electronic artists in Arizona who have yet to take that step in their branding.

After becoming familiar with Not Your Shadow member David’s former solo project, Jack of Diamonds, I managed to track his career to a visual duo (and production trio) at a home studio in Phoenix to dig a little bit deeper on the masked group crafting unapologetic bass music… Read More →

What and who the hell is Coffee Pot?

For the past few months, I’ve closely followed a musician’s Twitter handle of unknown origins, like Rumpelstiltskin approaching me with a weary bargain, a strange-yet-endearing EP under the title of Anthrophobia ended up getting shoved into the back of my inbox until I felt fully in control of my rapidly-decaying cognitive abilities. Containing the Latin prefix “anthro”, meaning human, how could I resist a short five-track romp with the theme of “human phobia?” I hate humans, and you should too!Read More →

smiling faces 700

by Logan Lowrey-Rasmussen

Although I had the pleasure of meeting Matt Oliviero and Michael Oden from The Smiling Faces and, more recently, of Vintage Clothes, I didn’t get the chance to listen to their August-released LP, Don’t Ever Talk to Me Again, until recently when frontman and guitarist Eric Gallagher brought it to my physical Facebook-attention. The album, which makes me feel like Dave Grohl in “Walk” both musically and lyrically, contains vocal chaos among smart, instrumental qualities Frasier Crane could enjoy…Read More →

Danielle Durack

by Jacob Unterreiner

No matter what type of music you play, standing out as a musician is a difficult task. However, for singer-songwriters, standing out is nearly impossible. The sound of soft, folky strums of acoustic singer-songwriters can be heard at every coffee shop, bookstore, and art gallery in the Valley…Read More →

tryb 700

by Logan Lowrey-Rasmussen

In the afternoon of late November, I drove up to Scottsdale to interview Garrett “Tryb” Namenye, a DJ and producer based in the Valley who has not only opened for substantial names, but managed to build a strong, interactive following with bass-heavy music and inventive branding. While most DJs hide behind various personas and ego barriers, Tryb is managing to break these artificial walls by staying true to his work and gearing down on the nitty-gritty aspects of his career and family…Read More →
