The headline read: “Windows 10 brings high-definition holograms to life in your world.” What? Surely this has got to be a joke, like how everyone thought […]

October 13, 2013

I had high expectations for Ghost and Goblin. The idea of a duo producing cheesy, haunted-house style electronic beats sounds more than awesome to me.

While they don’t revolutionize the concept of a four-piece folk band, this quartet does it really well.
