Digging Through the Crates #7

John Maus is an experimental pop musician currently residing in Minnesota. His music, which recalls an eighties pop sensibility that should be familiar to WERS listeners and modern day indie kids alike, is deeply rooted in a set of profound thoughts and emotions.

Bruce Springsteen Live at Fenway Park

Bruce Springsteen Live at Fenway Park

On Tuesday night, Bruce “The Boss” Springsteen took over Fenway Park for the first of his and the E Street Band’s two-night stint in Boston. And on Tuesday night, Bruce “The Boss” Springsteen turned that beloved ballpark—which he had visited previously, also for a two-night stint, in 2003— into a sold-out sanctuary for fans of [...]

On the Verge: The Pines

Sporting a refreshing sound and their Midwestern gear (flannel and beards from head to toe), The Pines load into the WERS on-air studio with the comfort and confidence every good band has. Benson Ramsey, David Huckfelt, and Alex Ramsey sound check their Mumford-esque vocals and dreamy guitar blends to prepare for their feature On the [...]

Musicians Featured In Olympics Closing Ceremony

Musicians Featured In Olympics Closing Ceremony

A while ago, I reported on the suspected opening ceremony playlist for the 2012 Olympics. While the opening ceremonies were more of an abstract fever dream rather then the pageantry and pure unbridled extravagance that was Beijing, they had their own quirky (34 million dollar) charm to it. The closing ceremony, on the other hand, [...]

Osheaga Music Festival

Osheaga Music Festival

A lot of us have songs that we consider “ours.” They’re songs we listen to over and over again, through our headphones on the bus or turned up loud in our room.

The Showtek brothers have recently done some amazing collaboration work [...]

Real Estate Live In Studio

Real Estate Live In Studio

I was supposed to interview the band Real Estate when they came in for the live mix at our WERS studio, but due to time conflicts the band couldn’t stay. For a couple reasons, I felt a little freaked out inside when I realized this; Real Estate is one of my favorite bands, and I [...]

“A Collection” by The Be Good Tanyas

After a four-year hiatus, The Be Good Tanyas are back with A Collection, a career-spanning retrospective album that includes tracks from their three studio albums, as well as two new songs. As seems fitting from a retrospective, A Collection doesn’t break new ground even on its new tracks, but it’s a welcome return from a well-loved [...]

Joining us for a live in studio performance was Jon Herington. Though primarily known as a sideman on albums and tours for artists including Steely Dan, Madeleine Peyroux, and currently The Dukes of September Rhythm Revue, Herington has also made a name for himself as a solo musician.
