Cass McCombs: The Anti-Rock Star

"A lot of my songs are created to have a specific magical reaction. If it works, it punctures a hole in reality. It’s an alternate universe that you can peer through."

When I meet Cass McCombs’, at the discreet Epitaph Records building on a corner of Sunset Blvd in Silver Lake, there is no glamorous shield. The Northern California-native sat in a dimly lit, plain conference lounge in front of shelves of albums from icons like Tom Waits and Nick Cave. Without question, I noticed his eyes first—deep pools of blue that […]

Agax and I had stopped at the ‘club house’ for a barbeque breakfast before riding the few hours south to get home. […]

Afrojack talks music, moments, and the importance of being gone

"My grandma helps me also. She's 83. Usually if she doesn't like I song I make, it's probably not right."

Learning to forget isn’t that torturous of a process. Especially for Afrojack. He’s generally a happy man who makes happy music. Simple, right? But in a grey world filled with labels and doubts, he’s learned at a very young age how to leave this world behind by breaking through the smoke and mirrors to create his own. He is many […]

As seen in the Repercussions Issue

In the 1988 film Clean and Sober, Michael Keaton—a real estate agent with a substance abuse problem—checks himself into a drug clinic after losing his job. Towards the end of the film, Keaton, now sober, delivers a speech to a crowded auditorium full of recovering addicts, “It’s 30 days later,” he says, giving a reflexive, wincing smile, “I’ve been to a […]
