EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT & TRACK STREAM: CHAD STROUP’S “SECRETS OF THE WEIRD”

July 12, 2017 Shawn Macomber

In his exhilarating, consciousness-mutating debut novel Secrets of the Weird, Chad Stroup fuses a kaleidoscopic embrace of the surreal and fantastical with a punk hardcore velocity and sensibility — think Twin Peaks meets Damaged or David Cronenberg adapting I Against I.

February 8, 2017 Shane Mehling

It doesn’t take long to say a lot. Case in point is the song “Under the Wave Blanket” by the Austinites Drip-Fed, who pack plenty of pain and hope into 2 1/2 minutes.
