Indie Artist Allman Brown Should Be Next On Your List of Music Finds

Aug 15, 2014  |   Contributor: Nicolle Monico

If you were listening close enough last season during an especially emotional moment on NBC’s Parenthood, you may have heard Allman Brown’s beautifully written song Sons and Daughters playing in the background. For me, it was when vocalist Liz Lawrence joined him on the chorus, filling his melodies with wonderfully placed harmonies, that I knew I had to hear more.

What's Cooler Than a Bluetooth Speaker? One That Floats!

Aug 14, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

Sometimes luxury means a product that's so unusual and cool that it's completely unique in its market, like the "world's first levitating Bluetooth speaker," the OM/ONE—yeah, it actually floats. Designed by OM Audio, this music gadget is pretty much the perfect gift to give someone who has everything, because we're willing to bet that a suspended speaker orb is something they probably don't have.

Marshall Is Still Winning the Headphone Game With Super Cool Customizable Over-Ear Monitor

Aug 7, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

Rock music-themed headphones are more popular than ever but before another new trendy model comes out, let's direct our focus to Marshall's over-ear Monitor headphones. Designing a lifestyle just as much as they do their iconic guitar amps, this brand is usually pinpointed the moment someone walks into a room. To be honest, most guests spot the Stanmore sitting in my living room before they even notice the giant plastic T-Rex head hung above the mantel (true story), and that's because Marshall is synonymous with cool.

Houston-based indie rock band The Tontons had already been on the road for two months straight by the time we got to them behind Soda Bar in San Diego. With their road-weary tour van stuffed full of blankets and pillows beside us in the alley as a reminder of their exhaustion, they took some time to chat about their unique sound, the pressure and perks of self-releasing, and what life is like on the road.

20,000 Days on Earth Investigates Nick Cave's Psyche & Boldly Redefines the Music Documentary Genre

Jul 18, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

There's a scene in 20,000 Days on Earth in which Nick Cave chauffeurs Kylie Minogue around Brighton in a black 1980s Jaguar XJ as she reflects back on having first met him. The front passenger seat is left open for us, the audience, as an invitation into a music documentary that's not quite real. In fact, everything you see has been constructed and the car you're in is more like a dream. Though the ambitious film is artistically pieced together and wrapped in fiction by Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard—and co-written by Cave himself—it's actually the most beautifully honest reflection of art's transformative power you may ever see.
