[CULT TALK] Hether Fortune of Wax Idols

[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,...
[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...

[CULT TALK] Christopher Owens Isn’t All That Tragic, Really

[CULT TALK] Christopher Owens Isn’t All That Tragic, Really

The world is constantly taking me by surprise. (I say “oh” a lot more than most people). Take Christopher Owens for example. The former Girls front man is steeped in his own mythology, which alternately positions him as a tragic hero who overcame the adversity of a difficult upbringing (Owens was raised in the infamous...

[SEVEN QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN] Calvin Love Has A Lust For (A Nomadic) Life

You know what I love? Yes, french fries, and yes, also baby goats, and yes, okay the television drama Nashville, but aside from all that? I love driving music. I love the kind of album you can put on in its entirety to soundtrack aimless driving, preferably at night, most preferably through winding roads and...
[CULT TALK] Curtis Harding Loves Bryan Adams, Is Also A Liar

[CULT TALK] Curtis Harding Loves Bryan Adams, Is Also A Liar

Curtis Harding is probably the coolest person I know. He’s so cool that he makes me physically nervous (more so than usual), a side effect that was exacerbated by the fact that we conducted this interview over pho (soup is so slurpy and chopsticks so unwieldy). The former rapper (cool) joined Cee-Lo’s band (cool) when...

[TO DO] LA: WIN Tickets To See Parquet Courts, White Fence, and Destruction Unit at The Fonda Jan 17!

[TO DO] LA: WIN Tickets To See Parquet Courts, White Fence, and Destruction Unit at The Fonda Jan 17!

Sure, these bands are really good. Parquet Courts has been likened to the second coming of Pavement by various media outlets whose job it is to apparently make comparisons like that, White Fence is critically beloved and very PROLIFIC (according to every piece of writing about them on the Interweb) and also the subject of...

In keeping with our devotion to getting content up extremely quickly, here is the first episode of our new Internet television program, Cool Show...

[EMPTY PROMISES] New Year’s Resolutions By Cultist & Friends

In keeping with the great tradition of looking sideways at self-improvement around January 1st, here is a giant post of New Year’s Resolutions from our friends. Perhaps they will inspire you (but probably not).  (photos mostly stolen from all sorts of places, it’s not like we make any money you could take in a lawsuit...
