sounds: ten reasons why it was awesome to see the entrance band

1) psychedelic bass drum collage
2) glitter light show
3) guy blakeslee singing shirtless
4) m.l.k.
5) blown out bass monitor
6) frequency finger-dance
7) effects effects effects
8) paz lenchantin's knee-dance
9) tix under twenty
10) post-show-sweat-head

A lot of things have shifted and changed in the last year and a half but Entrance is still my favorite music.


Icon: Buffy Sainte-Marie

When asked about our influences as a band, Jordan and I will always talk about Buffy Sainte-Marie. A Canadian-born folk singer and songwriter, she drew from her Native American heritage, her personal struggles, and the politics of her time to create music that influenced her contemporaries of the 60's and 70's and continues to make an impact today. When we started this project, some of our first songs were Buffy covers and you'll still hear us play them. Her voice, music, and even personal style are one of a kind. Here are some videos!

Dear Friend,
To us this is not just the release of Luv Magazine's second issue, it is also a celebration of our first feature in print. Please await decadence, dreamscapes and the twinkling tin of our broken music makers. We hope you will rsvp and attend!

Ways of Seeing: The Wonderful World of Cheap Champagne

Drawing by Ricardo Fumanal

Jordan Robin and Aleksandra McCormack are spirits born of illusions that span the coasts of this country West to East, and beyond the liquid bridge of the Atlantic to Dublin, to Göteborg, to Warsaw and Moscow. As Cheap Champagne they continue their travels jingling about this New Amsterdam destination as resident tourists of the contemporary dreamscape. In these entries lies the residue of a couple of show ponies. Let it converge and make new melodies.
