Analyzing Lunar Vacation’s new ‘Inside Every Fig Is A Dead Wasp’

Imagine no gravity… floating weightless and untethered inside a capsule filled with cotton candy… sipping drinks out of a hollowed-out pineapple, looking out a window at the earth below on your way to outer space.

Neal Francis comments on new ‘In Plain Sight’ LP

The writing process for new music always varies from artist to artist. Some, like Springsteen, can spend days locked inside a studio perfecting snare beats.

‘Far Cry 6’ original soundtrack heavy with sociopolitical overtones

If you have played a more recent Far Cry game, you normally know what to expect: incredible open world playgrounds, countless customizable weapons, lovable furry companions and, above all else, a twisted, unapologetic villain.
