Audiofeed 2017 preview: Øde Vinter

Every year what I perceive as the limit of the musical paradigm of Audiofeed is blasted apart. Would I expect to see black metal here? Sure. How about a worldview that isn't Christianity at a predominantly Christian festival? Yes again (I learned that the first year). A band as dark in image as Øde Vinter? Well, you ...

Audiofeed 2017 preview: The Still, Small Voice

The Still, Small Voice exists in that ambient indie niche within another niche that is alternative, vulnerable faith-informed music. Yet, the mastermind behind the project, Christiana Benton, would likely tell you that the music is for everyone. Benton has been making waves in the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic DIY community as ...

Audiofeed 2017 preview: Parental Petulance

Audiofeed 2017 preview: Hotel Neon

I was just surfing YouTube and happened upon the Inception ending scene.

The feeling evoked from that happenstance viewing is definitely shaping my feelings right now as I ...

Audiofeed 2017 preview: Headrush

Headrush is a band that exists to promote authenticity and true community. There's no room for posers in their fanbase. I've been privileged to see the hardcore band in several different settings. Someone's basement in North Linden, Columbus Ohio. A pizza basement. An avant-garde bar. And, possibly most memorably, ...

SPRING FLING REVIEW +CHASE HUGLIN INTERVIEW

One of my favorite things about the summer are festivals. I try to attend as many as I can. It doesn’t matter if they are one day, multi-day, small local ones, or nationally known ones. I just love festivals. For the past 6 years, I have had one event “kick-off” my festival season. This year that festival did not have ...
