What is Milk & Cookies?
In 2016, BoomZilla Sound Collective djs SantosSocialClub and IGGY were annoyed that they had to leave Oakland to hear good, live house music. So, the DJ duo started throwing parties all over Oakland. They cut their teeth playing hole-in-the-wall clubs in East Oakland and spent a year as the residential music duo at Chabot Space Center’s First Fridays. In 2019, the BoomZilla crew found a permanent home at the Starline Social Club and Milk & Cookies was born. The party was a hit from the start and packed out the Crystal Cavern every month, attracting notable djs like Ben Browning of Cut Copy and Miss Dre to share the decks. Just like everything else in 2020, the party was forced to go on a hiatus. Now, after a 2-year hiatus (fuck you Covid) Milk & Cookies is back!
Alice Boman has been thinking about space a lot lately. The silence between sounds, the unspoken bonds between humans, the enormity of the universe and her place within it. It can all get a little overwhelming at times if she’s honest, but whenever it does there’s always music.
“Writing is still a way for me to understand myself,” Boman explains, speaking from her home in Stockholm. “As an overthinker, there’s this constant motion in my head, so it helps to sit down and write about it to actually understand what I feel or think. Or just to find stillness.”
You can follow these mini epiphanies on The Space Between, the Swedish singer-songwriter’s stunning new album. Ruminating on intimacy and existential angst, to listen is to hear Boman’s thoughts unfurl in real time, her quiet contemplations cocooned in sympathetic arrangements created in collaboration with producer Patrik Berger.
