IXZHILION: Kraut rock from outta this world
The year is 2022, and we are not living in the future that I wanted. There’s a seemingly never-ending pandemic still going on, live shows keep getting cancelled, Taylor Swift and Adele are causing vinyl I actually want to be delayed forever….it’s a drag. But, luckily there is one band who just released a debut that I can only sum up as “music for the future I want to be living in”. IXZHILION is that band. So far, the band has released 4 songs- their debut single, “ANKIMILION”, along with “IXZHILION” 1”, “GOATMEALION”, and “SIGNS OF IXZHILION”. Is it kraut rock? Is it post punk? Psych? Perhaps something entirely different?…
The Arithmetic of My Unbound Sorrow: Essential Forever Crunches the Numbers in “Knew It Was the First Time” and It All Adds Up to Something Magical
Essential Forever’s Al Heaney recently packed up his turtlenecks and Peter Asher glasses and made the big move from the mellow Midwest to the lights of Los Angeles, where the former film student turned crooner just surprise-debuted a new single sparkling with Hollyweird dramatics.

Heaney croons about the power of love and crunches numbers like a possessed ’60s accountant in what he so poetically calls “the arithmetic…

Stewing on and Swooning Over John Myrtle’s “Myrtle Soup”
2021 may finally, blissfully be in the rearview, but there were a few delectable albums whose sizzle we missed amidst the pandemic madness that deserve a spot amongst your 2022 spins, and cheeky Brit John Myrtle’s Myrtle Soup (with vinyl album release set for January 28) is this chef’s choice of the day. John Myrtle crafts songs that simmer with the earnestness and innocence of the early Fab Four but delivers them straight from his London bedroom (or kitchen?) with a knowing modern wink at the sheer absurdity of bursting into song about matters of the heart. On songs like “How Can You Tell If You Love Her” he tackles…
