There will be no new episode of Sonic Landscapes this evening, however, I did want to share with you some seriously badass punk rock concert posters from the 1980's. The pen and ink, last-minute, straight-forward style which dominated these works are perhaps best exemplified by Ray Pettibon, the brother of Black Flag guitarist and founder, Greg Ginn. Pettibon's artwork con...
As you may know from listening to the show, my roommate Julian is an electronic music aficionado. Although he is a skilled DJ for the masses who filter in and out of our room, on his own time he spins his true favorite music, tech-house, minimal techno, and deep house. This music tends to be a little easier on the ears, with bubbling, consistent, clean beats that bounc...
What better way to celebrate a lapse in the Ithaca winter than a discussion about California hip hop and rap? Spanning decades, regions, and subgenres, this episode gives a survey of some of the best music the golden state has to offer. I am joined by two good friends and amateur experts on California and California music, Patrick Cambre of L.A., and Rob Greig of...Fra...
It's the time of year when we don our finest sweatpants (even Karim's doing it), grow a fuzzy beard, and plug ourselves into our beloved coffee I.V.'s. Study period is almost here, and finals are peeking their deformed little heads over the horizon. This week I have prepared a pleasant one hour mix of relaxing, focus-inducing music to throw on when you want to tune out...

I'm not going to lie to you like I usually do. I'm quite excited about this episode, and that's without the usual sarcastic bite. Here is one hour of some of the most chill music that ever came out of the 90's. I remember hearing some of this music in my house as a little dude and thinking, "Duuuuuuuuuude. Chill song." So there you have it.

I distinctly remember the type of sounds you are about to hear from my childhood. Walking down ancient streets at night with my family during the summer, we would hear these alien sounds emanating like ghosts from Greek Orthodox churches, the sound of cantors leading hymns and melodic prayers, propelled by the unearthly acoustics of these sacred structures.

The first conversation Warren and I ever had revolved
around craft beer and good music. Since then, not much has changed, save your occasional friend bracelet and scrabble match.
Mr. Lowell is a member of Glee Club and the Hangovers, and on this episode Sonic Landscapes explores the idea of the voice, and covers some crazy ground as well.
