[FOMO-GRAPHS] Larry Went To Berserktown II

Larry went to Berserktown II to check out some music and report back for Cultist. She can’t actually type, so there’s no actual reporting, but there are these adorable polaroids with some of the who’s who of the fest. They would have been up sooner except Larry kind of sucks...

[SEVEN QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN – BERSERKTOWN EDITION] Feels

  Every week leading up to Berserktown II, we will be posting a Seven Questions interview with a band playing the fest. This week: Feels. Last week: Zig Zags.  Mostly I try to get rid of my feels, usually by burying them in the warm numbing glow of television (mmm hours and hours of Netflix...

[SEVEN QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN – BERSERKTOWN EDITION] Zig Zags + “Slime” Song Premiere

Every week leading up to Berserktown II, we will be posting a Seven Questions interview with a band playing the fest. This week: Zig Zags. Last week: Silent Servant.  We’ve talked about the band Zig Zags a lot around here, mostly because they make the kind of Lemmy-loving, pussyfooting-free rock n’ roll that we love,...
[SEVEN QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN] Ducktails

[SEVEN QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN] Ducktails

Ducktails is the dreamy solo art rock music project of Matt Mondanile, sometimes known as the guitarist of indie pop band Real Estate. Ducktails formed around 2006 and has created four albums and six EPs over the years – each individually divine and experimental as fuck. In my imagination, Ducktails makes lo-fi bedroom pop from a computer nestled...

[SEVEN QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN – BERSERKTOWN EDITION] Silent Servant

  Every week leading up to Berserktown II, we will be posting a Seven Questions interview with a band playing the fest. This week: Silent Servant. Last week: White Lung.    I don’t know about you, but if I had a servant, I would definitely not want a silent one. The whole point of a...

[SEVEN QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN – BERSERKTOWN EDITION] Mish Way Of White Lung

  Every week leading up to Berserktown II, we will be posting a Seven Questions interview with a band playing the fest. This week: White Lung. Last week: Lust For Youth. Here is a short list of things making me eyeball bleeding, forehead sweating, short of breath angry this week: the companies that keep thinking...

[SEVEN QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN – BERSERKTOWN EDITION] Lust For Youth

Every week leading up to Berserktown II, we will be posting a Seven Questions interview with a band playing the fest. This week: Lust For Youth. Last week: Wax Idols. Scandinavian people are so odd. Doesn’t it feel like they’re always just eating fish spreads for breakfast and making cute affordable furniture and taking good care...

[TO DO] Win Tickets To See Motörhead In LA 8/22 By Guessing The Wolfpack’s Favorite Songs

  Usually for these contests we just ask you guys to tweet us something moderately amusing in a fill-in-the-blank scenario and while that’s been fun and all (some of you are kind of funny, we guess), we’re going to change it up for this particular give-away. If you want to see Motörhead live in LA...
[CULT TALK] Matt "Manface" McCormick

[CULT TALK] Matt “Manface” McCormick

  I don’t think this interview with Matt “Manface” McCormick needs much by way of introduction, but I do want to drop in a few things about the 28 year old artist that might surprise you: He’s a pretty big book nerd whose favorite book is The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster (he’s also the...

[SEVEN QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN – BERSERKTOWN EDITION] Hether Fortune Of Wax Idols

Every week leading up to Berserktown II, we will be posting a Seven Questions interview with a band playing the fest. This week: Wax Idols. Last week: Milk Music. Since our primary concern here at Cultist is objectivity and journalistic integrity, I’m going to recuse myself from writing this intro paragraph to the interview with...

[CULT TALK] Artist Ariana Papademetropoulos

  I found Ariana Papademetropoulos’ paintings on Instagram. Someone in my feed posted a few pictures from the opening of her show “Wallflower at the Orgy” of some of her fluid, florid scenes – creeping watery shapes blooming from dining rooms and bedrooms, ghostly white forms swirling inside a flower wreath; they had an uncanny,...

[SEVEN QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN – BERSERKTOWN EDITION] Milk Music

Every week leading up to Berserktown II, we will be posting a Seven Questions interview with a band playing the fest. This week: Milk Music. Last week: Screaming Females.  Fuck I love Milk Music. The Olympia, WA by way of Mars quartet often gets compared to the likes of the Meat Puppets, Sebadoh, and Dinosaur Jr....

[CULT TALK] Guantanamo Baywatch Just Want You To Put It In A Bag And Twist It

Most people don’t usually take “party bands” too seriously except, well, when they want to party. Those people have yet to meet Guantanamo Baywatch. These guys have been giving rock ‘n’ roll fans what they want since they dove head-first into the scene about five or so years ago. Guantanamo Baywatch was one of the first...
