[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.

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,...

[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] 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: Lust For Youth. Last week: Wax Idols. Scandinavian people are so odd.
