  • Album of the Week: Night Idea – Riverless October 17, 2017
    With the originality and inventiveness seen in their 2016 debut Breathing Cold, Night Idea’s sophomore release had an immense amount of anticipation months before it came to be. The progressive rock act from Richmond, VA, unveiled Riverless to the masses on Oct 13 via the Chicago vinyl-only label Gigantic Noise, their hometown cassette-only label Hand […]
  • Album of the Week: Weaves – Wide Open October 9, 2017
    Toronto alternative rock act Weaves have been giving independent music an eccentric jolt. They have an art-punk sound that incorporates jangle pop and abstract harmonies. Their second LP, Wide Open, came out Oct 6 on the Brooklyn indie label Kanine Records and it’s a stellar follow-up to their acclaimed self-titled debut that came out during […]
  • Album of the Week: J. Roddy Walston & The Business – Destroyers of the Soft Life October 6, 2017
    For 15 years, Baltimore rock ‘n’ roll energizers J. Roddy Walston & The Business have been tearing up the independent music circuit. Walston brings a vintage flair with his talents on piano and guitar while guitarist Billy Gordon, drummer Steve Colmus and bassist Logan Davis round out a stellar sound. The band walks the line […]
  • Dinosaur Jr. to Shred The Met, Sep 27 September 27, 2017
    Dinosaur Jr. have been putting out amazing music ever since the original trio of J Mascis, Murph and Lou Barlow got back together in 2005. Four albums have risen from the reunion, with Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not the most recent in August 2016. The evolution of the band since 1984 has Mascis […]
  • Album of the Week: Propagandhi – Victory Lap September 26, 2017
    A president who looks like the human equivalent of a cheesy puff has made the United States the most divided it has been in decades. On both social and political levels, Americans are torn apart while racists and fascists parade in the streets, with some even getting positions in our country’s government. It’s a strange, […]
  • Tigerman WOAH Aims To Rock The Copenhagen Beer Festival September 22, 2017
    The second edition of the Copenhagen Beer Festival is taking place at the Sowa Power Station in Boston on September 23 and 24. It’s a wild time featuring more than 50 craft breweries, live music, food vendors and a whole lot of fun. One of the bands performing during the weekend is Tigerman WOAH, based out of […]
  • Album of the Week: Lina Tullgren – Won September 20, 2017
    Lina Tullgren is putting a different spin on the singer-songwriter style. The 23 year-old from southern Maine strums an electric guitar with a deep tone that forms a signature sound. Ty Ueda contributes his talents on organ and guitar to compliment Tullgren in stellar fashion while Petey Mclaughlin provides the foundation via percussion. Tullgren’s debut […]
  • Soft Kill at Dusk, Sep 17 September 15, 2017
    Ever since the dawn of the 21st Century, the post-punk style has experienced a revival in two different decades. In the 2000s, bands affiliated with the genre had more of a pop æsthetic and were on a mission to make people dance. These days in the 2010s, most acts are delving into darker and distorted […]
  • Album of the Week: The Dream Syndicate – How Did I Find Myself Here? September 15, 2017
    Back in the early ‘80s, there was a unique music scene happening in Los Angeles. It wasn’t what was happening on the Sunset Strip and it had nothing to do with hair metal. This community was coined the “Paisley Underground” and it had bands fusing ‘60s psychedelica, classic power pop and early alt-rock to form […]
  • Album of the Week: Oh Sees – Orc September 6, 2017
    Prolific artists often go underappreciated in the music industry. It’s strange to see bands that only have a handful of albums be celebrated more than acts who have released over 20 records. The latter can be said about San Francisco garage noise rock phenoms Oh Sees (formerly known as Thee Oh Sees) and their latest […]
