Lisa Harrison and Lexi McCoy of Bearcats create chaotic harmonies that bay, thump, and brawl. Basically, they’re rad – why bury the lead? With their latest release, “Break Up Stories”, the band confiscates any notion of placidity and delivers one of the best EPs of 2016.
In wanting to get some hot takes from Horrible/Adorable on songwriting, pizza life, and the raddest of enamel pins, we caught up with the bay area’s finest Neapolitan rockers.
In shorthand, Alfred Howard has a great mind. In wanting to bother one of my favorite people, I decided to ask him about the carnival of terror that was 2016, the social relevance of Myspace, and the greatness of The Redwoods.
Her voice is like a balm for bruised hearts and people who think Dusty Springfield should have a statue out in front of the Rock ‘N’ Roll Hall of Fame. There’s a definite nod toward Burt Bacharach and early sixties Hi-Fi standards in the way she plays and sings.

The venerable publication not only covers topics of note with enthusiasm and knowledge, but they are unpretentiously affectionate toward people, culture, and art.

Vera Papisova has encouraged positive discourse in relation to health, self-awareness, and happiness. Over the past few years her uncompromising passion to discuss vital and often times unaddressed subjects in popular media – ranging from body image to sex education – has given readers a much-needed forum for a myriad of essential subjects.
Psychopomp’s landscape feels of loose rocks, doughy clouds, errant sparklers, and latticed emotions. It’s an album that climbs, dives, and pushes its ethereal boundaries with longing-vocals and marred pastels. Michelle Zauner is the architect behind both Japanese Breakfast and the weightless reveries of Psychopomp.
Turnover – Austin Getz, Casey Getz, Eric Soucy and Danny Dempsey – have created a mosaic of illusory, intangible, and yet familiar imagery. With the band’s latest release, Peripheral Vision, the Virginia Beach natives lend themselves to a rip current of dreamlike compositions.
Cleveland Browns corner Jamar Taylor’s skill set includes anticipatory reflexes, high football IQ, and inimitable tangibles that you don’t often see in most players.
