A Square Meal: ‘Sine Sleep Session EP’ by Saitone

Posted by

When a long day finally comes to an end, there are just a few things we can say are ‘universally pleasant’: taking your shoes off, laying on the bed with your face on the pillow, drinking or eating something, playing some music, or taking a shower to name a few. Thinking on those little pleasures sometimes is the reason we hold ourselves together and keep going through a hard day. This time I want to bring to you a tremendous EP that would be useful in a situation like the one I just described – I’m talking about ‘Sine Sleep Session EP’ by Saitone, released through Future Disorder.

A Square Meal: ‘City EP’ by Ca5

Posted by

I’ve always had a fascination with how sounds are interpreted by other people; is it too rough, too high or too intense? Why do people like it? That’s because, in the end, and as almost everything else, music is communication. Sometimes, even without noticing it, I have ended up with my nose between sounds I didn’t fully comprehend at the first listen. Of course, the wrong context could ruin your enjoyment of some music, but there are some albums that seem to remain unchanged regardless of where you listen. That is the case with Ca5’s music. The urban landscapes with shades of drum and bass stand by its own and go straight to the point; whether you are at a rave, in the waiting room of your dentist, or enjoying the afternoon coffee. So let’s take a look over ‘City EP’ by Ca5 released through Esctrax.

Generally when I’m planning a recipe to share, I take some time to peruse my cookbooks or I take inspiration from what’s going on in my life. It is quite handy to feature something on the blog that I can bring to a party or potluck that week, that way I’m not responsible for scarfing all of it! This week, however, our very own President Hoodie picked it out! He has a well known love for cinnamon and beer, so it was really no surprise when he picked…

Chip Mom’s Kitchen #53: Texas Caviar

My mom is a professional muncher. A nibbler. A grazer. She doesn’t eat much at a sitting, preferring to make something yummy in large quantities she can piecemeal out over the week, something that gets better as it sits in the fridge. That’s why it was of no surprise when she introduced me to the odd salsa-like concoction known as…

At the last MAGFest, our dear friend Adam Seats gifted my hubby, Brandon, a truly decadent beer.

The unfortunate truth is that I don’t like beer. Unless, however, I can take that beer, combine it with a birthday celebration, and whip up a delicious batch of…
