Every other week, Anthony Kozlowski pens the Atwood Magazine column Tunes & Tumblers, pairing new and classic albums with cocktail recipes. He quickly found however that drinking alone is a sad business. So he invited his friends Pedro Isaac Chairez and Ryan James into a recording booth to aid in mixing delicious drinks and to discuss the music that they all love. Strap on your headphones and enjoy a cold one on us.
Pop artist and TikTok mashup king Max Frost drops by Tunes & Tumblers to discuss his ‘Flying Machines’ EP, share a mind-blowing mezcal cocktail, and dish up a cautionary tale of why you need to back up your stuff on the cloud!

Pop singer/songwriter and TikTok mashup king, and we mean KING because those mashups are iconic, Max Frost drops by Tunes & Tumblers to discuss his latest EP, Flying Machines, share a mind-blowing mezcal cocktail, and dish up a cautionary tale of why you need to back up your stuff on the cloud (spoiler: it might be due to the fact that the world sucks and we live in a crime-ridden society, but we’ll let you be the judge of that). “My music has been like a little airplane I’ve been trying to build in my backyard,” Frost says. “The things you create chasing a dream are fragile, difficult to get off the ground, and sometimes magical if you get lucky.” Cheers!
