Review: Nicolas Jaar – Time for Us EP

Artist Name: Nicolas JaarTitle Name: Time for Us EPLabel: Wolf & Lamb/Clown & SunsetReviewed by: Rory O’Maley I’m not one to go weak at the knees, but over the last year, I’ve developed a mighty admiration for the unique style and choice productions flowing from Nicolas Jaar.

Lee Curtiss – Lunatic Fringe

Artist Name: Lee CurtissTitle Name: Lunatic FringeLabel: VisionquestReviewed by: Rory O’Maley There’s something about the combination of electronic music and smut that just works. Don’t get me wrong, the dulcet tones of LMFAO shit me as much as the next person, but when a track with a smooth bassline and filthy premise starts rolling across the speakers, you’d be hard pressed not to […]
