Call for Essays About Any Aspect of Popular Culture, Present or Past

Adam Finley

Adam Finley has two unmarketable degrees and a framed picture of Arnold Schwarzenegger in his office. He’s been in the freelance game since 2007. He writes music reviews, political essays, non-award-winning short fiction, travel articles, and Limp Bizkit haiku. He once published a story about a chimpanzee. He is still shocked that people are willing to pay him money to write words. His dream is to ride a manatee.

Die Antwoord: Donker Mag

Die Antwoord have described their work as "exaggerated experience", and that's apt. Anger, lust, passion, violence - all things through the lens of Die Antwoord become amplified to the point of deafening.

Pigeon John: Encino Man

As a title, Encino Man works both as a shout-out to John's beloved L.A. and a wink toward vintage coolness -- the album is a virtual love letter to '70s and '80s pop radio.

Mimicking Birds: Eons

With Eons, Nate Lacy opens up his internal world into a vast starry landscape, creating a gorgeously organic record made for headphones.

Bubba Sparxxx: Made on McCosh Mill Road

Bubba Sparxxx has made plenty of good songs and a couple of great albums. Made on McCosh Mill Road, unfortunately, has very few of the former and is not the latter.

Say Hi: Endless Wonder

Watching Eric Elbogen's career has been like watching a turtle come out its shell in slow motion, and Endless Wonder is perhaps Say Hi's most fully realized album to date.
