Two Tiffanys celebrating what they love by giving it a stage and using their voices to spread the word.


The Monsters Are Due On CrayonBeats (part 3)

Good morning, readers! I am proud to announce that the third part in my The Monsters Are Due On CrayonBeats compilation series is out TODAY. If you aren’t familiar with this concept compilation series that I have curated, let me briefly explain what it is.

As an 80’s baby and a child of the 90s, I read the Goosebumps books as a kid and, boy, did a lot of them scare me. In my years, I’ve also seen all of The Twilight Zone episodes, and continue to watch the series when it marathons during holidays. Similarly, they are really cool, innovative creations that tell tales involving themes of horror, thriller, science fiction, fantasy, comedy and beyond–they take your mind into strange and scary situations that are based on dream and reality.

CrayonBeats Presents Vol. 5: “The Monsters Are Due On CrayonBeats”

If you’ve been keeping up with us, you’ll know that this year we’ve released a couple of concept compilations. In February, we dropped our love-and-heartache themed compilation, titled “Love… This Might Hurt“. Then, Tiffny and I decided to each take on a compilation, where we’d be handling separate projects. In September, Tiffny dropped the stellar “Girls Named Tiffany“, featuring ladies named… Tiffany. Yup! You should understand why. Stream and download both of those, and our previous volumes, if you missed them. No, really, go do it!

Our last compilation this year is volume number five. Put together entirely by me, CrayonBeats presents “The Monsters Are Due on CrayonBeats“. The title is a play on an episode of The Twilight Zone. However, this compilation features two different themes — The Twilight Zone (episodes) and Goosebumps (books).

CrayonBeats presents Vol. 2: East x West

It’s finally here! Another volume of our special compilation series — CrayonBeats Volume 2: “East x West”. This is on a bigger scale than our first volume. More music and a different approach. This time, there are TWO compilations within the zip file. Tiffny took on the East compilation, and I (Tiffology) handled the West. Now, let me first say that all the artists within the respective compilations aren’t necessarily from the East or West coast. What the East and West most represents is the different music that reaches two separate girls on opposite sides of the United States. Tiffny is from New York (East), and Tiffology is from Arizona (West). While we live in the same country and have the same name (haha), our taste in music differs a bit. And with this volume, we wanted to share music that we each like, and both support, by promoting their music and talent to YOU. A lot of them have been featured here, in some form.

Album Review: Nomar Slevik – “In The Field Where I Died”

About a week ago, good friend Nomar Slevik asked me if I’d review his new album “In The Field Where I Died” before its release date (April 5th). I said yes, of course. Having reviewed his “Welcome to Fuckland” record on the site, owning previous albums, as well as interviewing him back in 2009, I’d say I had a good idea of what to expect from this album. Dark, experimental beats with disturbing subject matter. Bingo.

The Maine artist/producer, Nomar Slevik, presents “In The Field Where I Died” as his first solo release on Milled Pavement. It has 18 tracks, and features Meiso, Selfhelp, Myn Dwun, Demune, Cognition, Noah23, Brzowski, A-Frame, Id Obelus, and Xczircles. Production by Nomar Slevik, and also DJ Extend, S.L.A.P., John Cue Publik, Myn Dwun, Mat Young, Tony Ciro Saggese, zoën, and Efalive. Read on!

August 13th: WTFunk event & Nomar Slevik

If you didn’t know, tomorrow is Friday the 13th. Our good friend, Nomar Slevik, will be streaming his “Welcome to Fuckland” album for FREE all day tomorrow. So go check out his bandcamp page and listen to it, MFers.

And if you’re in Arizona, like me, Grimm Image and WTFunk Friday are hosting an event at the Stray Cat Bar and Grill (2433 E. University, Tempe, AZ) at 9PM. Headlining are the iintercepterz (Herman & Ace-Ville) and Myka 9.

CrayonBeats presents… "The Primary Colors" Vol 1

You read the title right. For those of you who weren’t aware, Tiffny and I (Tiffology) were working on creating a mixtape/compilation album for our blog. It’s our very first. And after a couple months of putting it together, it’s finally here!

The Primary Colors” is a compilation of artists featured in our exclusive interviews, SOUNDCHECKs, and general posts.

We really hope enjoy it. This is, hopefully, the first volume of many others to come. It features tracks from artists such as Stainless Steele, Wize Crack, Nomar Slevik, Elaquent, Dibia$e, Gimm박사!, Richie Cunning, Lilac, and more. Tracklist and download link after the jump.

"A Language You Can See" by Nomar Slevik

If you’re checking up on CrayonBeats often, you should be familiar with Nomar Slevik. And if you read the interview I had with him in June, you might remember that he loves researching all things paranormal.

Nomar informed me that he had published a short story in a paranormal magazine called, “Paranormal Underground“. You can buy that magazine issue here or you can view/download the entire magazine for free here. Nomar’s story, “A Language You Can See“, can be found on pages 42 and 43 of the magazine.

Waking The Dead

nomarslevikhalloween1 Sometimes I wish I were a kid again, so I could go trick-or-treating. I want some candy. Is it weird for 23-year-olds to go trick-or-treating without a little kid with them? :\ Probably. Instead, I’ll just have whatever candy I buy (no awesome variety of treats), that I’ll be passing out to the few kids that come around. Not sure if I’ll be doing anything exciting or not…

Anyway, happy Halloween! What’s up with you guys? Doing anything special today, tonight, or this weekend? Dressing up as anything? Yeahhhh, I’m pushing my nose into all of your lives… and you’re gonna like it!

Okay… it’s that time! As promised, I was going to link you all with where you can listen to 3 Nomar Slevik albums.

Bump in the night with Nomar Slevik

wakingthedead2 Around Halloween is when artists usually try to do special things to celebrate the holiday – creepy remixes, free music, and so on. Well, Nomar Slevik, a CrayonBeats familiar, is doing something cool. Check it out…

Brought to you by Nomar Slevik and Dis.eased Wrekkids, you’ll be able to stream the last 3 albums by Slevik for 24 hours. After the jump, find out which three…

Nomar Slevik – “Welcome to Fuckland”

If you’ve been reading CrayonBeats, you’ve seen numerous mentions of Nomar Slevik. Not that long ago, I made a post about his “Welcome To Fuckland” 7″/CD package (dis.eased wrekkids) that I received. Go get it! Now I’m going to do a little review on it…

Nomar Slevik "Welcome To Fuckland" 7"+CD

welcometofuckland-package Thanks to Nomar Slevik and Will over at Dis.eased Wrekkids, I received Nomar’s “Welcome To Fuckland” 7″/CD combo over the weekend. When I opened it, I was quite impressed with the packaging of the items. Inside of the sleek black book, you’ll find lyrics to each song on the 7″ vinyl. Behind the right page, is the actual 7″. In a little pocket on the left page, contains the CD, the CD insert, a couple dis.eased goodies (sticker + little info slip), and a Nomar Slevik WTF business card.

After the jump, I’ve provided pictures of the items so you can get a better visual of what I described above. Also provided are tracklistings, specs, and where you can purchase the combo.

Nomar Slevik – "The Startling Truth"

thestartlingtruthnomarslevik If you read the interview I had with Nomar Slevik in June, you might remember talk of him finishing his solo album, “The Startling Truth“, and that it was going to be released sometime near the end of the year.

Welp, it’s that time! Free download of the album after the jump…
