Make More Noise 047

From electronic to acoustic, Make More Noise spans all sounds to bring you the best new music, and perhaps an artist or two you've never heard before. It's a radio show for listeners with open ears and minds. Hear new singles from James Blake, Junip, and The Knife, before we trade in synths for guitars and settle in with some indie folk goodness from Akron/Family, The Milk Cartoon Kids, and Phosphorescent.

Kale & White Bean Crostini

I haven't posted an original veg recipe in oodles of ages, and that's practically a crime in certain states where home-cooking is still a prized skill. What can I say? Grad school is eating my soul. However, I did join a CSA since moving to Los Angeles, and they are awesome. All winter long they've been leaving me delicious presents on my front porch, including my all-time favorite winter vegetable: kale. How do I love kale! I couldn't even begin to count the ways. I also love finger snacks and good cheese. If this sounds remotely similar to your tastes in mouth-stuffing, then this recipe is for you. I concocted it based on an amalgamation of several different recipes I found on the interwebs, and made it to treat myself on a rare "me" day. Of course, you can omit the Parmesan cheese to make this dish vegan-friendly. Enjoy! ***Yields 20 Crostini*** Kale & White Bean Crostini with Parmesan 6 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil 2 tbsp Apple cider vinegar Se

Make More Noise 046

Sachi Subterranean takes you on a sonic road trip on this edition of Make More Noise. Take off from the underground lands of electronica, turn right at indie rock, keep cruising nice and easy through soulful sunsets, and then let things get a little weird as you sail through the night under stars, until you finally finish strong with the rising sun. Waxing too metaphorical? Well, more bluntly we move from a Bonobo remix to new music from the Cold War Kids to a celebration of Lianne La Havas' vocal skills, to Youth Lagoon's sophomore triumph. If this mix suits your fancy, listen live on Thursdays from 7 to 8pm PT on, thanks to USC.

Bryce Canyon

I finally made it out to Bryce Canyon National Park over winter break. I drove into Utah long after sunset, and it was beginning to flurry. By the time I made it to the only open campground at the park it was almost midnight and well below zero degrees. I woke up early to find a frosted world iridescent with snowflakes and sunbeams, and ice covering my sleeping bag. In warmer more frequented seasons, Bryce Canyon is stunning, but in the lonesome winter months blanketed in several feet of snow, it achieves even higher levels of breathtaking ethereal glory. Here are the photos I took with my digital point-and-shoot, a Nikon AW-100 specifically designed for harsh conditions. Analog 35mm photos from my Superheadz Golden Half toy camera will be published soon. Also, keep an eye out for a Zion National Park series.
