Museache Metamorphosis: 3 Years In

July 26, 2016

This story does not have a happy ending. Well technically this story doesn’t have an ending. More like a new beginning.

Today marks 3 years since Museache was digitally born. It seems like the perfect time for us to reflect on all that’s changed so far and what’s still to come. Internally, the Museache family has multiplied and matured since that first Museache post and that passion that brought us all together has intensified the deeper we go down the rabbit hole.  Externally, we’ve put on  showcases, New Year parties, traveled to festivals and made unforgettable memories with artists we’ve connected with IRL. The world, specifically music blogs, has changed a lot in those same 3 short years. All that change has made us contemplate on where we fit into all of this and where we want to be moving forward.

Museache

In short, it’s time for a change in our appearance with our new logo and a shift in our content focus. We owe a lot of our accomplishments to being a blog, but the label “music blog” has pigeon holed us to the point we no longer easily fit in. Music is what binds us, but we are photographers, designers, music producers, writers, and much more.

We want museache to be representative of who we are completely and thus we will begin to reduce the amount of music content we curate. It doesn’t mean we will stop completely but we want to open a new door the things that inspire and hopefully you everyday.

We haven’t made a single dime off of this and I don’t think any us would ever want to. Everything was paid and labored with love. We are grateful for the artists we’ve met through this outlet, the bonds that were strengthened, and our continuous self discovery. Your art has changed our lives more than you will ever know

We’d like to thank all of our readers, show supporters, and Internet buddies while at the same time invite you on a new journey as we find new avenues to express ourselves. Whether that is through the form of a zine, multimedia installations, events, or a good ole fashion blog post. We will continue to evolve and change just as the world does around us.

Welcome to the new era of Museache.

Dissent and Iron Price Flawlessly Meld Hardcore and Metal

July 29, 2016

Fast Break Records has just released a gritty, dark and introspective split between metallic hardcore all stars, Iron Price and Dissent. The dismal themes of anger, isolation and self-loathing reverberate through this record, leading the listener down the path of those failed by a broken system and corrupt world. Through 14 heavy hitting tracks, Iron Price and Dissent create a sonic realm of pure anger. This record is not concerned with pleasing the younger generation, who tries to label watered down pop punk as hardcore. This split is genuine East Coast metallic hardcore at its finest. Iron Price and Dissent effortlessly bypass the trends and go straight for coarse guitar/bass tones, haunting vocals and groovy yet forceful drum patterns.  Continue Reading…

Colors, Patterns, & Honesty with Dondre Green

June 21, 2016

Dondre

When I am not curating Museache playlists, I am usually dibbling and dabbling in the visual world. As such, I’ve grown very fond of multiple rising visual architects in the last few years. I’ve handpicked and uniquely interviewed each of my favorite photographers and multimedia artists, who are blurring the borders between creative mediums. For my first interview, I reached out to Bronx native and professional photographer Dondre Green. Right of the bat, I was captivated by Dondre’s distinctive eye for composition and his playful marriage between colorful backgrounds, patterns, and his subject’s personality. That might be a lot to visualize all at once, so let’s just jump into the full spread.

JSMN Hypnotized NYC with His Intimate Performance

It’s been almost 2 weeks since I was fortunate enough to see JMSN at Le Poisson Rouge, one of the most intimate venues in NYC. I managed to snag tickets for about $18; a steal when you factor in the amount of talent and energy JMSN brought to the stage. I’ve been a fan since he was flexing with the long Jesus hair and using the falsetto chords to croon out his lost love for †Priscilla†. Since then he’s released two major projects in JMSN (Blue Album) and most recently It Is.  Being more fortunate, I also caught JMSN on tour of Blue Album at Rutgers late in 2015. That show was great, but I was a little disappointed because his smooth R&B energy was in conflict with the raging Vic Mensa, who was the main act. But something felt right this time around.

Museache Spotlight: Laura Misch – Shaped By Who We Knew [EP]

June 13, 2016

 

Laura Misch

I can’t stop listening to Shaped By Who We Knew by sultry singer Laura Misch. Maybe it’s because of  all the jazz I’ve been listening to lately or because I’m still in love with vocalists from London. Either way, the EP is pretty amazing right from the start with opening track “Daylight” latching on to you. It sets the tone with slick guitars, some sexy saxophone work from Laura herself, and fine drumming for her soft vocals. I reached out to Laura to get some more info and she opened up about the process of making her first EP. Let’s jump into the session.

Ah, the summer is looking pretty epic as we pick up right where we left off in our country tour of the underground scenes. Anchor Fest is back with a vengeance next month featuring rising stars such as Lil Uzi Vert, Playboi Carti, JK The Reaper, and our homie Micah Williams. You might wanna cop these tickets before the Frederick Fairgrounds are capped. Don’t say we didn’t tell you.

See You There.
