Music + Television

January 31, 2017 | Blog

Once upon a time, many moons ago in the year 1981, there was this television station called “Music Television” and they aired music videos all day.  You may be familiar with it under the name “M.T.V.”.  That spunky channel with the young strangers trying to find love for money or raising babies or turning in to werewolves.  Jokes and sarcasm aside, I have a fondness for M.T.V. because it gave me my first music video memory.  It was Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ 1994 “Mary Jane’s Last Dance”…

Crosley and the B-Sides: Meet Paper Route

July 27, 2016 | B-Sides

Crosley presents Audio Files featuring Sunflower Bean

July 12, 2016 | Audio Files

Their second album, Human Ceremony, suits lazy summer afternoons more than the chilly months of February it was released in. Sunflower Bean is relatively young, only formed in 2013. Two Long Island boys, Jacob Faber and Nick Kivlen, were both fresh from high school when they jumped in feet first. Soon after they were joined by the haunting voice a…
