Zhea Erose – Icosahedron

Side projects are a funny thing: mostly, we go into them with a curiosity as to how exactly the result will be different than the artist’s “main” band or musical output. That’s not to say people don’t get excited about the music, just that typically the main draw for new projects from artists we’re already familiar with is to see how they take what we know to be their strengths and shape them into some sort of new sound.

Reel Good Sh1t: Best Music Vidyas Of April

Back once again for the renegade master… Oops, wrong meeting. Yes, it is time for my round up of the smartest music videos I’ve seen this month. Whether it’s sleek and shiny or gruesome and garish, I’ll watch it with both eyes peeled and all of my senses involved. This time around it’s the turn of the full band performance video. Stipulations of entry into this list include all members of band accounted for on film and at least five close up shots of instruments being played. These are great tracks this time around too whereas last month I chose a great video for an awful track. Yes. It was Babymetal. I digress, away we go!
