  • Album Of The Week: Wavves’ You’re Welcome May 19, 2017
    Naming a band after something you fear is strange, but at least there’s some honesty that comes with it. Regardless of his thalassophobia, San Diego musician Nathan Williams and his surf pop punk outfit Wavves have their sixth album, You’re Welcome, that’s due out on May 19. Williams is joined by Stevie Pope on bass, […]
  • Beach Slang Rocks The Met On May 12 May 12, 2017
    Some bands have an objective of capturing the moment. They artistically infuse the thrills of live music into their sound and they become an energetic juggernaut.

  • Album Of The Week: Gorillaz’s Humanz May 10, 2017
    Being a virtual band, Gorillaz definitely have a look that comes with their music. 2-D is short, lanky and goofy, Murdoc Niccals looks like a cross between Frankenstein and Keith Richards, Noodle is a petite Japanese badass and Russel Hobbs is a big and rotund drummer with a knack for transforming into various beings. Realistically, […]
  • Bad Rabbits Perform at The Met on May 5th May 4, 2017
    Let’s face it: Cinco De Mayo is a bastardized holiday. Much like St. Patrick’s Day, most people view it as an excuse to get drunk on whatever alcohol they deem appropriate and make complete fools of themselves. It’s the pre-summer edition of amateur hour that ignores that the day commemorates an unlikely victory that the […]
  • Album Of The Week: Slowdive May 3, 2017
    Versatility doesn’t have to abide by an age. As long as the talent is there, it doesn’t matter how much time an artist takes off.

  • Record Store Day Invades RI April 19, 2017
    It’s a day that’s a music junkie’s paradise. Each year, local record stores become hives for special releases and sometimes in-store performances, and this celebration of everything that is good in the music industry is held all over the world. Record Store Day (RSD) is happening once again on April 22: In Rhode Island, the […]
  • Album of the Week: The Suitcase Junket’s Pile Driver April 19, 2017
    A one-man band is so mystifying. How do they create so many sounds? How do they mimic a full band so well? A bunch of questions come to mind when a musician is playing multiple instruments at once. Enter Matt Lorenz and his music project The Suitcase Junket. This fuzz-folk enigma is releasing his fifth […]
  • Sheer Mag Shreds AS220 April 14, 2017
    That ever-so-famous phrase, “punk is dead,” has been said by at least one person a day giving their opinion on music, but whoever says that hasn’t experienced what has been happening in Providence recently. Hairspray Queen are a bunch of kids who play emphatic hardcore punk that’s intense and emotional. Downtown Boys have been gaining […]
