Tobias the Owl: Science is Cool

I love Tobias the Owl. I really really REALLY love the music that pours forth from this astounding collective. I edited this video with a faraway grin plastered across my face and felt a bit sad when it was done. Do you think I’d do well if I started a crowdfunding campaign so I could…

Tobias the Owl Achieves Immortality

  It’s always a sign of a good Saturday afternoon when you get to witness great music and weird, wonderful conversation about how you basically become someone new on a molecular level once every seven years, with people who aren’t even high. Tobias the Owl had a Shakespearian introduction to me. I would hear the name…

Star Anna pt. 2: Big Bad Wolf

I woke up this morning with an incredible lack of enthusiasm, which I brought back to life miraculously by editing this video of Star Anna and her band playing her amazing song Big Bad Wolf. She truly has one of my favorite voices in the world! It was such a pleasure to edit. I then…

Star Anna

This was the very first blog post I ever recorded based on a dream. Somehow Star Anna managed to sneak her way into my subconscious, possibly through her hauntingly beautiful songs, and the fact that I’m in Seattle and in Seattle you hear about Star Anna a lot/ You hear about her around here, most…

Skating Polly Pt 2

Here’s part 2 of our exclusive interview and acoustic session with the incredible and wonderful Skating Polly. Enjoy!

Skating Polly pt.1

I visited Skating Polly (stepsisters Peyton and Kelli) at their home in Tacoma on a drizzly Saturday morning a few months ago. The two and a half hour bus journey to get there gave me ample time to catch up on their back catalog – one I’ve been listening the hell out of for the past…

L80 – formerly known as Pussy Cellar

I’ve already extolled the virtues of Tony James’ other band, the very wonderful Trannysaurus Rox, but here’s the poppier number he shares with Chad, L80 (pronn “lady” – doesn’t work in my accent but that’s acceptable!). In my perfect world L80 would occupy the pop position that Rhianna currently hogs to herself. If I was to…

Nadafest Day 1: Richie Dagger’s Crime

Here you go you lucky kids. Video number 3 from the amazingness that was yesterday’s Nadafest. For those who missed it – I’m v sorry! Enjoy the lovely stoner-ness of Richie Dagger’s Crime. I’m back off to film some more bands. Let’s hope my camera can take all of this excitement.

Nadafest Day 1: Wild Powwers

If you’re reading this and it’s still the weekend and you’re in the area – you should definitely go. Seattle’s Wild Powwers are an infinitely quotable band. The…

NadaFest 2016 – Wiscon

It seemed like such a great idea, turn up at a festival, film and interview a bunch of bands, go home, eat pizza, edit like i’ve never edited before, collapse in a big heap. I’m not sure if I’m crazy or not, but this weekend Alt Fanclub is hoping to bring you coverage, almost as…
