Colin Nance has a dark side. You can hear it in the work he puts into music project Harglow with Eric Gorman. There, he toys with industrial-tinged electronic music with bits of the occult and Gothic underpinnings thrown in to great effect(check out “Candle Wax” here for further proof.) But with Softaware, Nance keeps things […]Read More Song Premiere : Listen to Softaware’s Ecstatic “Soft Monster”
I’m sure most folks when you mention the music of summer think of The Beach Boys, Bananarama, Ice Cube, BTO, or something produced by the likes of Mark Ronson or Paul Williams. Me?

He’s played in a few different bands, such as The Devil Made the […]Read More Thug Life
I’m not entirely sure what drew me to Ben Zimmerman’s The Baltika Years. It may have been the album cover, which was all white with what looked like confetti all over it. Maybe it was the fact that one of my new favorite record labels, Software, was putting it out. Or maybe it was the […]Read More The Space Jack Hummer
My musical tastes have run the gamut over the course of my 41 years. From when I was a kid in short pants soaking up the day’s popular hits in the backseat of my mom and dad’s boat of an Oldsmobile, to forcing Yngwie Malmsteen’s Odyssey down anyone’s ear holes within feet of my bedroom […]Read More Do Androids Dream of Electric Beats?
I just love coming across new and exciting things. Why just yesterday I came across a garlic press that doubles as a watch and defibrillator. And last week I came across a pen with an eraser on the end of it. Can you believe it?? Erasable ink?? We are living in futuristic times, people. We […]Read More Ben Zimmerman’s ‘The Baltika Years’
