Music legend Prince found dead at his Minnesota estate today. He was 57. More updates as they are made available.
I found Motion City Soundtrack in college. Like a lot of people, “Commit This To Memory” was my introduction to the Minnesota pop punk band. I liked them immediately, thanks to catchy guitar and synth riffs. But the lyrics made me a true fan. Self-deprecation, self-medication, self-destruction – an admission of how our generation copes […]
OK Go is known for their amazing music videos. From elaborate dance routines to Rube Goldberg machines, their innovation and thoughtfulness make me a bigger fan with every video released.

As Daft Punk put it, “Like the legend of the phoenix. All ends with beginnings.” And that means I will be taking up the mantle that is Electric Mohawk. I remember when Brett asked me if I wanted to contribute. Over the years, I did a few articles and playlists, but I didn’t have a lot […]
