Despite this year being significantly tamer than last year's festival, our South by Southwest was truly eventful, but this year for completely different reasons. Read below for a day-by-day account of what we got up to, our musical highlights, and some snaps to accompany it all...Read More

The past weeks have been a whirlwind to say the least. We packed up our bags from the Greenpoint loft we came to know as home and headed for the concrete hills of gentrification and "affordability'' in Bushwick...Read More
Thursday, October 23, 2014. Our morning was fueled by Mexican food and coffee, ultimately setting the precedent for the rest of the day...Read More
Tuesday, October 21. 2014. Let the marathon begin. The marathon that is a feat of running around New York City, from venue to venue, desperately trying to catch all desired sets and failing miserably...Read More
We asked Brooklyn sweethearts Darling Din to share their favourite spots in this New York burough we now call home. Be sure to catch them at our showcase on Saturday night at Arlene's Grocery, and if you're in town for CMJ, take a minute to visit one of these hidden gems...Read More
We were once foreigners in this town, as so many other people were, but NY quickly stole our hearts and gave us warmth in shape of amazing bars and restaurants! Here are five of our favourite places to hang out in Williamsburg:Read More
Today, the annual CMJ Music Marathon kicks off in New York City. There will be an overwhelming amount of talented artists in town this week from all across the world, so we thought it would be a great time to get some of the city's locals to show us around.
We asked New York local Johnny Lewis to pick out his top 5 spots to visit in the city...
October 1, 2014. Today marks the one year anniversary of our infamous Musical Pilgrimage. This time last year, we were disheveled, boarding a plane from San Francisco to Austin. We would come to know our Austin couchsurfing hosts (band, Megafauna) very well and start the journey that in many ways, made us. Inspired by our acceptance to CMJ Music Marathon, we took that month of time and planned a trip around it; travelling from California to New York, hitting the musical hubs and documenting the story along the way...Read More
Oh Bonnaroo. Where do we even begin?
Perhaps we should start this story by saying that until exactly 3 days prior to the festival, we had absolutely no idea we were going to be attending. We had every intention of staying in New York and spending the weekend at Northside Festival until we received a group Facebook message from our London landlord that said, simply, "Bonnaroo?"...Read More
We're not quite sure what it means to us as a business, the fact that we established ourselves on April Fool's Day, maybe we are just one big joke? Maybe we are fools to have started this journey at all? Or maybe we just don't take ourselves too seriously. Whatever the reason, this is the day we officially began one year ago, and goddamn it we are foolishly proud of it...Read More
Thursday morning was not the sprightliest of awakenings to say the least... After we gathered our thoughts and composed ourselves, we were able to revel in the fact that we had just accomplished what we set out to (thanks to everyone involved who made our showcase possible)...
"Ohhhh" and "kay"... these are the only words that we can find right now to describe the past week. We touched down in the glorious land of Austin, TX on March 5th, and from that moment until now, there is a lot of recapping to be done...Read More
