[SEVEN QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN] Charlie Hilton

I don’t pay too much attention to genre classifications in music anymore, partly because I am old and out of touch (I stopped trying to keep up somewhere around “Witch House”…or was it “Witch Haus”? Not sure don’t care) and partly because I have my own system of classification that...

[PREMIERE] Beach Party “Ripper”

WORDS: ALICE BARLOW PHOTOS: RACHELYN REMZ The dudes in Beach Party are literally some of the best, and best looking, dudes I have ever met in my life. The first time I met the bros, James, Rob, Adam and Nico, I literally only remember 40% of an entire weekend. I remember being at a house...
[PREMIERE] Pouty "Sad" Music Video

[PREMIERE] Pouty “Sad” Music Video

  We all have different ways of dealing with seasonal depression. For example, the way I get through the punishing and disheartening six month long summer of Southern California involves staying inside almost always and spending an inordinate amount of time at indoor malls in a sweater forlornly nursing some sort of frozen dessert. Other...

[SEVEN QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN] Childbirth

It was 1991 when Bikini Kill first called for Revolution Girl Style Now! and though it’s been nearly 25 years and a few things have changed, there is still a loud and plaintive cry for equality. Nearly 25 years later, there is a call for Revolution Girl Style STILL, and one of those crying out...

[CULT TALK] Hether Fortune of Wax Idols

Hether Fortune is 28 years old and has been making music since she was a angsty teenager locked in her bedroom in Michigan. A self-taught musician who can nimbly switch between guitar, bass, keyboards, and drums with ease, Fortune started her band Wax Idols as an experiment in self-expression five years ago. Five years ago,...

[BEST VIDEO EVER] Premiere – Publicist UK “Canary” Video + Interview

    Made up of members of many metal and post-punk bands (Municipal Waste, Melt Banana, Revocation, and Goes Cube, amongst others) Publicist UK has been referred to as a super group no less than three times (as per my online searching) and though that does hold some water (they’re no Traveling Wilburies or Velvet Revolver,...

[CULT TALK] Kate Hall and Sarah Rara Have New Books Coming Out On Hesse Press

We love Hesse Press, and not just because we are mildly to moderately obsessed with its co-founder, the beautiful and brainy Clare Kelly, who along with her partner John Wiese, launched the press last year (what’s it called when you’re just one single solitary person but you use the word “we” like a psycho?). We (okay...

[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 at using a scanner.  ...

[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...

  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...
