Bon Iver at the Pavilion

Bon Iver at the Pavilion

  Fans keep 2008’s For Emma, Forever Ago so dear to heart. When Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon wrote “Skinny Love”, he was crafting together the commentary to dwindling love stories across the country. With the 2011 self-titled release, people thought nothing less of the delicate confessions that were offered. These songs of solitude and searching are […]

This Week In Music History

This Week In Music History

What’s interesting about a Friday morning in early September? Your weekly fix of music history, that’s what. Twenty-eight years ago in 1984, MTV introduced their now annual award show, the MTV Video Music Awards. Bette Midler and Dan Aykroyd, one of the original cast members of SNL, co-hosted the show. This original broadcast of the […]

Why? at The Middle East

Why? at The Middle East

  It’s been just under a year since indie hip-hop band Why? came to Boston. The last time the group was here, fans were treated to an intimate show with an “unplugged” vibe – a special treat, for sure. Their stop at The Middle East last night, however, gave fans a chance to throw their […]

On the Verge: Michael Kiwanuka

On the Verge: Michael Kiwanuka

Michael Kiwanuka was all smiles as he set up in the WERS studio in a varsity sweater and a thick, shaggy beard. Kiwanuka, of the United Kingdom, has had a crazy and exciting year, one that any emerging artist would be jealous of. After playing in bands for a while before signing to Communion Records, […]

Watch New David Byrne & St. Vincent Video

Nothing beats collaborations. When you combine the Talking Heads’ David Byrne and WERS favorite St. Vincent, you get an album that’s hard to explain (other than that there are plenty of horns in the songs). The two just released the video for their single “Who” off of their record Love This Giant.  Explaining the meaning […]

Antje Duvekot Live In Studio

Antje Duvekot Live In Studio

Antje Duvekot stopped by WERS this afternoon to provide a break from the more upbeat summer songs we have been playing like “Anna Sun” by Walk the Moon and “Tongue Tied” by Grouplove. Duvekot, who hails from Sommerville, MA, spent her warm up time gazing out the window as she softly sang to herself. Her […]

On the Verge: These United States

On the Verge: These United States

These United States stopped by the WERS studios as they kicked off their summer tour to support the release of their fifth album last week. For the live set, front man Jesse Elliot took lead vocals, Tom Hnatow on piano, Justin Craig and Anna Morsett on guitar, and Aaron Latos on percussion. The band’s latest […]

David Wax Museum Live In Studio

David Wax Museum Live In Studio

David Wax Museum stopped by the studio to play a few new songs off of their album Knock Knock Get Up. Veterans to WERS, they began by tearing into “Leopard Girl,” a standout track from the September 4 release.  “Leopard Girl” was a good choice to start with because it showed off a lot of the unique […]

Revo Radar: Zeds Dead

Revo Radar: Zeds Dead

“Zeds Dead, baby. Zeds Dead!” In this case, I’m not just reciting the infamous line from Quetin Taratino’s Pulp Fiction. I’m talking about the Canadian duo that goes by Zeds Dead. After sampling that quote in their song “White Satin”, this has become their trademark saying for fans wherever they go. Not to be mistaken […]

The Left End: Interview With Callers

The Left End: Interview With Callers

Recently, The Left End was lucky enough to chat with the Sara Lucas of up-and-coming Brooklyn band Callers before a show with the Dirty Projectors at the Paradise Rock Club. Callers are a great example of indie music crossing into other genres to create new genres altogether, and they brought down the house prior to […]
