Other than losing my dongle daily or Siri misunderstanding my song request, it’s amazing how effortless it is to listen to “Pink and White” by Frank Ocean several times a day whenever I want…Convenience is wonderful, but vinyl is powerful.

Earbuddy premieres the new music video from Extravision!
With Extravision, Stier creates sprawling, psychedelic songs that utilize 12-string guitar, synthesized drone loops, drum machines, and warm electric guitar. Extravision recently released its debut album, Waking Up, where Stier explores themes of death, overcoming fears, and beautiful simplicities. Today, Earbuddy premieres the music video for the album’s longest song, “The Dark Where I Could Only Hear”. It’s a journey that lasts over seven minutes, but it’s definitely one worth taking.
Treble premieres the new music video from Extravision, calling it “…a heady, disorienting haze of classic rock sounds and space-rock layers, somewhere between Spiritualized and The War on Drugs (and a touch of Phosphorescent), with some disembodied child voices and electronic drones.”

I began to focus on big-picture realizations I was having…such as…recognizing and overcoming conditioned fears I had built up for my first 28 years. This song came from wanting to think about death in a pleasant way, what I imagine might happen when we die and realizing that everyone in my life, friend and enemy, is important in my growth as a human.
