Listening to Astronauts of Antiquity is like stepping into a potential not-too-distant future right out of Black Mirror or a darker episode of Doctor Who. Take their hip-hop flavored 2016 single “Paradise” featuring rapper Deploi, for example. Strong beats and catchy hooks give way to a vision of a dystopian paradise where profits take precedence…Read more Beyond the Maze: An Interview with Astronauts of Antiquity
I saved two baby rabbits today. I was driving through the parking lot of the local shopping center when I saw a tiny (tiny!) baby rabbit crawling across the road in front of me. So I let it cross the road, then parked, emptied out one of my grocery bags, and scooped the rabbit up…Read more Rabbit, Run
I love Electronic Dance Music, but I sometimes worry that it overshadows other forms of electronic music. Case in point: the curiously organic electronic sounds of the DROiDS. Their music blends analog synths with more traditional instruments. I'm pretty sure those are real drums on "Obstacle" (the track below), but even if they're not, by…Read more “Obstacle” by The Droids

Maybe I'm betraying…Read more “Sickle/Hammer” by Spirits
Big thanks to James Revels at AudioSeXXX (Eargasms found here!) for sharing “Fuzzy Logic”!
Today I am featuring a Mr. Marc Schuster. He reached out in an email and I checked out his tune “Fuzzy Logic” I like the energy of the track, particularly the guitar riffs. I was listening to it while prepping for work and It like I was getting ready to go on a mission. Definitely worth a listen. Here’s a little more about Mr. Schuster.
By day, Marc Schuster is a community college English professor. By night, he makes music under the name Zapatero. His latest track, “Fuzzy Logic” is about how people lose their ideals when they give up on picking trash. Read all about it at zapateromusic.com.
I like all of the tracks on Garden Variety, but my favorite by far is "Fuzzy Logic." It's about how we tend to drift away from the ideals of youth. In this case, one of the main things I was thinking about was how my friend Chris Merenda and I used to pick through other…Read more “Fuzzy Logic”
