Full Moon Mixtape

Full Moon Mixtape by maQLu For a little while in 2013, I had a monthly mixtape podcast. Each episode had a new original (or at least a demo), a new remix of one of my own songs, and a new noise/experimental piece, along with a cover and a remix of someone else’s track. These are […]

Album of the Week: Cocked & Loaded – L.A. Guns

Originally published on my other blog, blahblahblah.pyradraculea.com Been on an L.A. Guns kick the last week or so, listening on repeat to 1989’s Cocked & Loaded along with their self-titled debut (1988) and the follow-up Hollywood Vampires (1991) on CD in my car. L.A. Guns always kinda got second billing after Guns N Roses, though […]
