very once in a while we encounter a new band that we can’t help but talk about. Form and Shape’s album My Conquest is the Sea of Stars sends listeners on an auditory journey through deep space with ominous beats in all the right places.

We’ve been following the musical adventures of Allison “Cossby Sweater” Goertz ever since she first regaled us with her super-catchy D&D anthem Tonight. With songs about everything from dungeon crawling to tragically cancelled Judd Apatow projects, Allison seems to fully understand the stuff we really love. On May 4th Allison’s indiegogo [...]
We’ve been ranting and raving about Cossbysweater for ages now and have some awesome intel to share; Allie Goertz & Megan Barrett are heading into the studio to record their very first album.
Today marks the late Bob Moogs 78th birthday, founder of Moog synths and keyboards, and godfather of all prog-rock keyboardists everywhere. In honor of the late Mr. Moog today’s google doodle is a full-fledged working synth!!
