Iggy, Iggy, Iggy, can’t you see? Sometimes your words just hypnotize me. But really, I love this piece by Linsey Chrishel. It was written for the wondrous man that is Iggy Pop in honor of his 65th birthday and recognition as Record Store Day Ambassador.


Review: Austin Psych Fest, Day 1,” originally published April 29, 2013.

Months prior to Austin Psych Festival, we applied for press passes on what we thought was a long shot. We were surprised and elated when we were notified that The Spec had been approved. Attending the festival as press was a wonderful experience and a great step in the direction we want to take Spec in the future.

Behind the Mask: Clinic’s Ade Blackburn Talks Domino, New Music, Touring,” originally published April 19, 2013.
