“Things I Should Let You Know” by Seth Glier

“Things I Should Let You Know” by Seth Glier

Seth Glier’s 2012 Grammy nomination came as a massive surprise.

Discover: “Walk The Moon”

January’s Album of the Month is the self-titled release from Cincinnati-based rockers Walk The Moon. Walk the Moon’s self-titled debut on RCA Records was released this past June, so its christening as Album of the Month for this month isn’t exactly timely.

“End of Daze” by Dum Dum Girls

“End of Daze” by Dum Dum Girls

With the Dum Dum Girls release of their fourth EP, End of Daze, the girls amp up their dream-pop sound with a little more dream and a little less pop. As a follow-up to 2011’s Only in Dreams, the EP samples a group of songs that were originally recorded for last year’s full length release […]

“Hands of Glory” by Andrew Bird

“Hands of Glory” by Andrew Bird

Self-proclaimed “singer, violinist, whistler,” Andrew Bird has come to be recognized as one of the more refined, yet accessible musicians in today’s popular indie rock scene. This classically trained artist’s instruments are not sopping wet with effects and reverb, his concerts don’t utilize gaudy light displays, and his poetic lyrics don’t make contemporary pop culture […]

“Twins” by Ty Segall

“No Man’s Land” by Charlie Peacock

“These songs are inspired by the grit, gumption, and faith of my grandparents over several generation.” The inside cover of Charlie Peacock’s latest release, No Man’s Land, makes obvious the theme of his twelve tracks of country-blues songs. He looks to the stories of his ancestors to fuel his music, covering the album case with […]
