Alex and Mario “backstage” at open mic. I’m so fucking blessed to know such warm-hearted, conscious people who constantly inspire me with their passion and willingness to sacrafice for their craft.
These two are travelling musicians. They work light, live light, and spend most of their time working on their art. Its totally amazing.
Holy fuck. This is some dark and gritty shit. I LOVE IT. Worth listening through the entire song - it changes quite a bit.
Are you ready to get rocked by some of the most delicious goddamned rock music in Seattle? I think yes.
The long-awaited Ancient Warlocks album is finally available online for your aural pleasure (yum). Dive in and let the warm waves of heavy fuzz, groovy irreverent riffs, and fantastic landscapes carry you to another plane. If you’ve ever seen these guys live, you know their shows involve booze, sweat and that beautiful fucking trance-like state that only psychedelic rock of this calibre can induce.
And for those that know I rant about vocalists all the time, I want to say again that Aaron has one of my favourite voices in Seattle - that boy casts some serious spells with his smooth, smoky vocals and gravel-filled yells. Holy fuck.
I love the word practice. How do you get to Carnegie Hall? You practice. How do you get to the Carnegie Hall of your soul, of your life, how do you get to the concert hall where you make best music inside yourself? You practice. How do you practice? You change your behavior. Every day. It’s very difficult, and you constantly are falling down and you have to constantly try to change it again.
