unsets and Hearts, is the project of Mexican American Artist, Car González. He got his early start in Corpus Christi, Tx when he formed the band Vattica with his close friends in 2002. They toured primarily in South Texas and went through a few different name changes and band lineups, first going by the name Vattica, then Stereo Box Studio, and finally landing on Zebras and Firecrackers. The band never released an album. It wasn't until 2009 when a friend left his entire recording equipment in González apartment for a week. It couldn't have came at a better time, as which González has described in interviews was at the lowest point in his life and had a suffering need to release music at any cost.

He recorded a set of demo's and released the dancey, drug pop single "Designer Drugs" which grew popular among friends and music blogs alike, later that year he released the "Despair & Desperation EP (Dec 2009)." Five months later he followed up with the highly obscure garage experimental, "Vive Tu Muerte EP (May 2010)," released the journal focused album "Music Sketchbook Series I," and the bedroom recorded, "Winter Wierdness EP."

By late 2011 he had relocated his music project to Austin, Tx and released the highly anticipated first full length album, "Altered Faze (Dec 2011)" which received much critical praise from music blogs for its interspersion with pop beats, soft melodies and synthesized compositions. The soulful single "Samantha Gamma" showed a softer side to González and became the heartfelt single that grew popular in early 2012.

In the winter months of 2012 he had detached himself from the then-current chillwave music scene and recruited the help of producer Cedar Apffel (Natureboy) and followed up with the avant garde, "Variant EP (Nov 2012)." Where he incorporated changeable influences seeking out post-punk, electronic drone, minimalist ambience and intimate acoustics. The composition, "Aloysia Aeterna / David Lynch" displayed this unique evolved sound to travel on opposite sides of the experimental music spectrum. From 2012 to 2015 he released the post punk influenced, "Bleed Over Ep" the second journal focused album, "Music Sketchbook Series II" and lastly his story crafted compositions album, "Songs for a Non Existent Film."

In early 2016 he released his second full length album "Unknown Futures (Jan 2016)," a complex instrumental electronic punk album with syncopated beats and dazzling synths screaming urgency. The repetitive lyrical single "Inertia LSP (Debt Slavery)" focused more on the redundancy of our lives and how we grow numb with life on a day to day basis when dealing with the blatant injustices being done to our society and future. In May he collaborated with McNeil Joseph and released the single "Suddenly Cataclysms," to benefit Border Angels an all volunteer, non profit organization that advocates for human rights, humane immigration reform, and social justice with a special focus on issues related to the US-Mexican border.

He is currently working on releasing a Summer album Fuck Trump EP before years end 2017.

Rise of Bitcoin

Big fan of Bitcoin, I was lucky enough to get in early. Watch the below video, Andreas Antonopoulos will explain everything you need to know to get in Bitcoin. He has a couple books I recommend reading that really explain Bitcoin as a technology for future commerce.

I use Keep Key to store the bulk of my coin and use Coinbase & Blockchain as my mobile wallets. Been using Blockchain a lot more to transfer Bitcoin because the fees to send Bitcoin are cents on the dollar.

No time for watching the video then download the Kindle Sample or audible version of Internet of Money, a great book to start off with, he goes into detail what Bitcoin truly is and where he sees it going in 10-15 years. 

NEW EP

Been working on a new album for the past year...until recently I changed directions. (Will circle around to that album eventually.)

Releasing the Fuck Trump EP by weeks end. The only voice I have in this world is through my music and it just does not sit right with me anymore to stay on the sidelines and not voice my opinion. This EP is my opinion.

Here is a sneak peek of the first track on the album. Will drop here first. Stay Tuned.

New Album in the Works

Currently in the process of starting on the next album for Sunsets and Hearts its very possible this could be a full album but I'm hoping I can cut it down to an EP.

Currently have a few songs recorded and a title but very still in the early stages of editing and creating these songs.

Stanley Kubrick's "Eyes Wide Shut" an Introspection

Kubrick & The Illuminati is name of this documentary which brings to light a lot of coincidences that are too overwhelming to set aside to say the least. I am an avid listener to Coast to Coast AM and keep an open mind about everything, that is how I came to find this documentary.

I had know idea Kubrick was having personal problems while making this film which I feel now after re-watching makes a lot more sense. This film deals with the struggle Kubrick had with his daughter Vivian Kubrick, who I had no idea existed until watching this documentary.

Kubrick has inspired so many artists, people and he has legions of fans, his films are taught and dissected in schools and universities. It goes without saying Kubrick will have a lasting impact on generations to come. He truly was a Auteur. If you have never heard of him I recommend checking his films out.

While “Kubrick & The Illuminati” begins with a shot of Michel Ciment, the editor of the journal Positif, it’s Laurent Vachaud’s voice that is heard in most of the film. But Vachaud told ARTINFO that he had nothing to do with the choice of film clips or editing the documentary, and that its directors alone were responsible for it. In fact, he described himself as “opposed to systematically illustrating the idea with the image,” which gives “the impression that everything is put on the same level,” causing the structured argument of his original article to vanish. Vachaud also spoke of the astonishing cinematographic power of “Eyes Wide Shut,” which he sees as “almost as cosmic a film as ‘2001, A Space Odyssey.’”

Listen TOO: Stillbirth

Was so sad to hear about Crystal Castles breaking up but when I read it was because "Years ago I began the process of trying to remove myself from an abusive relationship that started when I was a teenager." I quickly understood that Ethan Kath (Crystal Castles) was the asshole she was talking about and was extremely happy for her.

I have listened to the new Crystal Castles stuff it is shit and what Alice Glass is creating is far more SUPERIOR on EVERY LEVEL. She has an Amazing Voice and I have always thought her Vocals were always too low in the mix on Crystal Castles records. Its great to hear Lars Stalfors put her front and center in the mix. This sounds amazing so looking forward to this Album. Her new song Stillborn is pushing fucking boundaries with its message and sound. Love it! Be on the look out Alice is creating a new sound with Jupiter Keyes.
