SIXTY Sees: Moodoïd “Miss Smith”

Director Nick Roney takes us a little too close to the creative process with his new video for Moodoïd’s track, “Miss Smith.” The premise?

SIXTY Listens: Octavian “Hands”

London rapper Octavian has been making waves for his penchant for pushing the boundaries of his genre, and now, with the release of “Hands,” he takes it one step further. The track is a down-tempo, Auto-Tuned loop that feels like some peculiar combination of Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon and Kanye...

SIXTY Sees: ‘The Papermaker’ by Daniel Egenolf

Baltimore-bred Beach House has been turning out bedroom pop of the cerebral sort since 2004. Each album since then, while good, has existed within the parameters Beach House first created for themselves.

SIXTY Listens: Janelle Monáe “Make Me Feel”

If you’re needing a Prince fix–at least by proxy–you’ll probably dig Janelle Monáe’s latest track, “Make Me Feel,” off of her new album Dirty Computer. It’s pure pop of the nostalgic kind, and with a video that channels that very same sentiment. The whole thing is a fun romp through...
