[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,...

[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] Geoff Rickly On United Nations, Collect Records, And His Health Goth Gym Look

  Geoff Rickly is really easy to talk to. Like, really easy. So easy that my interview with the former Thursday frontman (which took place backstage before a show with his current band, United Nations) started out harmless and light-hearted, and soon meandered into a mountain range of topics, from enacting social change to creative...
[BEST SONG EVER] Wreck & Reference "Corpse Museum"

[BEST SONG EVER] Wreck & Reference “Corpse Museum”

Oops…Wreck & Reference Did It Again: BREAKING NEWS: One of my current favorite bands, Wreck & Reference, is readying their new full length album ‘Want’ (via The Flenser) and they’ve just premiered the first single. Holy fuck – it is intensely epic and terrifying per usual. It sounds like they’ve sampled a tornado ripping through a...
[BEST VIDEO EVER] White Lung "Drown With The Monster"

[BEST VIDEO EVER] White Lung “Drown With The Monster”

We’re nothing if not totally biased here at Cultist, so in that spirit we present to you today’s Best Video Ever, White Lung‘s new clip for “Drown With The Monster”, shot at our two year anniversary party at The Echo last month. It helps that the song is truly great, loud, fast, and full of...

[CULT TALK] Season of Glass: Alexis Penney

photos by Alexis Penney & Hether Fortune   What does it mean to be a modern artist? In an age of obnoxiously short attention spans (present company included) & a general “we don’t care” blase attitude toward everything, it’s hard to pinpoint what gets through and to whom. Now I’m just speculating here because I...
[CULTIST CRUSH] Wreck & Reference Interpreted & Appreciated by Hether Fortune

[CULTIST CRUSH] Wreck & Reference Interpreted & Appreciated by Hether Fortune

I am always drawn to music and art that is as emotionally charged and unhinged as it is carefully controlled and intellectual. Order amidst chaos. Transcendence amidst absolute destruction. Having both the keen awareness of this eternal universal balance and the ability to apply it to your art is much like discovering the key to...

[TO DO] LA: Win Tickets To See White Lung And Antwon At The Echo On 11/15!

I’m emotionally drained from the recent Halloween episode of Pretty Little Liars so I can’t devote to much mental energy to writing something here but just know that if you miss this White Lung/ANTWON/Nasa Space Universe show at The Echo on November 15th, you will feel like A is haunting your life for the rest...
[RIP] Oh Sweet Something: A Post-Lou Reed Rant

[RIP] Oh Sweet Something: A Post-Lou Reed Rant

“Lou Reed is dead.” I woke up with a start yesterday morning, as if I’d forgotten to set an alarm and had missed my flight. You know that feeling when you open your eyes and for a moment you have absolutely no idea where you are? I was on my life partner’s couch. I felt...
