With the endless possibilities inherent in the creation of music, it’s a wonder sometimes that so many artists end up sounding all too similar, whether by influence, design, structure or imagination (and lack thereof). The Austrian autodidact multi-instrumentalist Oliver Thomas Johnson embraces a limited vision on his second Dorian Concept album. Limitations can be negative,… Read more »

Watch FKA twigs new ‘Video Girl’ music video

By now, FKA twigs has established herself as a visceral artist in many respects. Musically, her album is uncompromising, her self-expression through dance unique and her vision through her visuals ticks both of those boxes.
