Jordan Pedersen used to be able to draw Dexter – the boy genius not the serial killer – in under a minute. The best music always has something to do with cartoons. That’s not really true, but LA record label Dome of Doom appears to have named themselves after an episode of Courage the Cowardly […]
 Sach O is the one that got away. “What I did with ‘[In My Lifetime] Volume One’ was I tried to make records. I had just made ‘Reasonable Doubt’ … it wasn’t successful in music industry terms. It was a cult classic on the streets, but it wasn’t successful in the music business and I […]

Fuck you, Sach O won’t do what you tell him. Motherfucker. Rage Against the Machine’s self-titled debut is the best rock album of the 90’s. OK, it probably isn’t but that’s not nearly as ridiculous a statement as some of our more “tasteful” rock-crits would have you believe and it’s certainly less of an exercise […]

It’s been a long time, Sach O shouldn’t have left you… without that dark urban hardcore futuristic beat shit to step to. With approximately 700 releases flooding the Internet per second, cutting through the noise is just as difficult for artists trying to get noticed as for discerning listeners searching for that next shit. Somehow, […]

Because I can no longer focus on pieces of music longer than 6 minutes or deal with rappers who didn’t come up in the 90’s. Also because I hate straight edge people, anything with a narrative arc and guitars but love beats and try to leave my computer as much as humanly possible. Youtube links […]

Sach O only publishes 1 out of every 10 posts he writes, the rest are exclusive dubs given out to Jeff Weiss, Nate Patrin and Matt Shea. I suspect our audience can be divided into two camps: those who worship at the altar of the Digital Mystikz (Mala, Coki and Loefah) and those who have […]

Sach O endorses ONE indie band a year. This is that band. Listen. Before carpet bagging, indie-rocking Leafs fans that wouldn’t know a Smoked Meat sandwich from a proper bagel invaded Montreal*, my city already had a vibrant, self-sufficient music scene en francais. Content to move units among the Province’s 6 million Francophones, local musicians […]

Sach O bringin’ ya Badman Sounds. I know dear readers, I know: enough with the bass/dubstep already. Jeff lives next to Low-End Theory, that’s his excuse but shouldn’t I be reporting on Studio 1 obscurities or the latest in (potentially but not really) game changing rap? The truth is even more sinister than you think: […]

Sach O can’t stop partying. When it came to vocalists, Reggae fans became increasingly open-minded in the 1970’s. From weirdo toasters to Rastafarian firebrands, Jamaican audiences quickly embraced the unique voices that followed Reggae’s creative boom leaving a number of wonderful Rocksteady acts in the dust. Thankfully, not all soul-influenced groups faded into the sunset–many […]

Sach O never joined the Psychic Friends Network. Paper Mache Dionne Warwick built her career by flipping the conventions of easy listening and infusing them with soul and passion but it’s still shocking to hear her weary, resigned kiss-off to the 60’s consumer culture she was supposed to embody. While the hippies were raging from […]
