DJ Epoc: Whether he is playing house parties, art galleries, or popular night spots, DJ Epoc’s unique blend of world dance anthems and American top-40 tracks puts him in a class of his own.
Since starting in college, he has performed in front of audiences for nearly 8 years. He is a tireless self-promoter and consistently works to take the dance scene to a new level. His loops, beats, and meshed styles harness the emotions that live in each of us, guiding his mission to bring our shared passion for music to life.
Show 22 is the third installment of the Bobble Gods monthly Rapstavaganza special.
Their guests where the mysterious Mike Rockwell from Kulture Clothing co., and longtime local emcee Michael Millions. In addition to playing lots of dope music, they talked about what is wrong with the local hip hop scene, how to fix it, and when you should expect the locals to start supporting it the way they used to. The Gods offered excellent insights into changing the game, while Mike and Michael showed us what was right with it, and how to work that angle. From start to finish, they kept their guests rolling with their off-the-cuff jokes and inappropriate humor. No doubt, this show is worth every minute.
You're never going to hear anyone make the statement "I've been emo since before it was cool," because anyone who's listened to the style of music now known as emo for long enough to make that statement almost certainly hates the term and vociferously refuses to identify with it. Having said that, I've been vociferously refusing to identify with the emo label for at least 15 years now, so I know more than a little about the style of music it seeks to describe. And the debut album by Richmond's own Conditions, Fluorescent Youth, might be the best example of the form I've heard all year. This album isn't a throwback, either; it's emo as it exists in 2010, integrating strains of the alternative rock and metalcore sounds that the emo genre has spent the last decade or so rubbing shoulders with.

Expectations are a real motherfucker. Negative expectations are very easily lived up to, to the point that they can verge on self-fulfilling prophecy. Positive expectations are easily disappointed, especially those which are held long enough to become a sort of truism in the mind of the person holding them. And then there are the grey areas--the manner in which personality traits, outlooks, and interests can shift and evolve more rapidly than preconceptions, leaving an individual suddenly shocked by the realization of how far he or she has come in life, and how little previously-held ideas relate to the present situation. This may all seem like irrelevant and not-especially-deep abstraction, but all these ideas flashed through my head over the course of The Hold Steady’s show at the National.
Deerhunter - Halcyon Digest (4AD)
The warm haze of lo-fi vocals and shoegaze guitars combines with programmed beats and synth swirls to create a melodic crossbreed of electronic music and psychedelia. Deerhunter have previously established this sound on albums like Microcastle, but Halcyon Digest improves on it significantly. Perhaps their best work yet.
Olof Arnalds - Innundir Skinni (One Little Indian)
It may be easy to predict that a native of Iceland, who is also a member of Múm, plays psychedelic folk with lush backing arrangements. Regardless of predictability, though, Arnalds' music is charming and pleasant, with her unorthodox voice adding just enough of a rough edge to keep things interesting.
Marnie Stern - Marnie Stern (Kill Rock Stars)
What a pleasant surprise! This album, filled with hyperactive but melodically driven postpunk, surpassed my expectations. It features significant instrumental proficiency, not just from Stern but also Hella's Zach Hill, whose excellent, unorthodox drumming is immediately recognizable. Imagine Kaki King jamming with Battles, only twice as awesome. This record rules.
Silent Music Revival is a unique event in the city of Richmond. Once a month this event combines classic silent films with live performances by musicians who have never seen the film. On Sunday, September 26th The Low Branches will perform a live, improvised soundtrack to the Jean Epstein classic Le Tempestaire.
I had the chance to ask The Low Branches some questions about the progression of their music and their impression of the Silent Music Revival.
Jameson: So how long have you been playing together as the Low Branches?
Christina: About one year. Give or take.
Jameson: Your music seems very element inspired, is there anything to that?
Christina: By "element inspired"- do you mean fire, water, air/wind, earth?
Christina: Well, it’s not literally inspired by the four elements, but it’s an obsession that I have – to find likenesses between how I am feeling internally and how the natural world is feeling or acting. I write from the perspective of a naturalist. Both my experiences and emotions always intersect with that side of the world. Nature is both reassuring and beautiful but also dangerous and a constant struggle. So are human emotions.. However, the writing is not only metaphorical – it’s often quite literal.
We work on the instrumentals to find a place that reflects the concept of the writing. It is often very quiet, like the wilderness: just you, your thoughts, and the subtle sounds that accompany that space.
In the fall of 2009, Virginia Commonwealth University students Emma Ellsworth, Kenyatta Watts and Nathan Madden walked into a documentary film class as strangers—not only to each other, but to the art of film-making as well. The trio quickly developed an idea, narrowed a focus and began developing an outline for their film that was tentatively expected to explore the graffiti culture in Richmond.
In the three-months that followed, the trio worked diligently to learn all they could about graffiti’s history, purpose and perception. The team had no delusions that they would create the first film of its kind, as each knew graffiti has been well documented. The only hope was to produce a film that introduced graffiti in a different light and informed audiences from all cuts of cloth about an art form that is, at its roots, controversial yet beautiful. Their final product, 'Get up.' aired on PBS in January.
