“The Bright Side” by Meiko

“The Bright Side” by Meiko

Meiko’s second track says it all; she’s in love. That’s one thing you need to know before you throw the album on. In terms of style, Meiko has stuck with what she knows and what we love her for. But, in terms of content, The Bright Side is almost a polar opposite from her debut […]

“That’s Why God Made the Radio” by The Beach Boys

“That’s Why God Made the Radio” by The Beach Boys

With anticipation building as the group tours the country once more (though the Pet Sounds lineup is long over) for their fiftieth anniversary, the release of The Beach Boys’ That’s Why God Made The Radio is perfectly timed—in a society that thrives on nostalgia, the Boys deliver nearly a half-century of American pop culture along […]

“Synthetica” by Metric

“Synthetica” by Metric

The Canadian quartet Metric have been keeping their solid fan base antsy with the three year wait since their well received release of Fantasies in 2009. Lucky for fans, Synthetica still sports the sonic pop swirl that they loved in the past. Metric has never been a band to be ultra flashy and flamboyant – […]

What happens when music combines with, or becomes, a call for revolution? The Beatles, the Byrds, Dylan, Gaye, Stevens and many, many more would all agree; the world begins to change, however incrementally small or exponentially large. “Songwriters who whittle complicated issues down to a simple, memorable melody, put their finger on the zeitgeist of a […]

After sixty studio albums, becoming co-chair for the advisory board of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, heading the genre known as ‘outlaw country’ since the end of the 1960s that stuck it to the conservative restrictions of […]

“I Like to Keep Myself In Pain” by Kelly Hogan

“I Like to Keep Myself In Pain” by Kelly Hogan

It’s been over a decade since Atlanta, Georgia artist Kelly Hogan put out a solo album, which leads to the question: where has she been all this time? Taking a look at her complete discography, it’s apparent that she’s been pretty busy as a collaborator with a smorgasbord of artists on several dozen records, contributing […]

“Out of the Game” by Rufus Wainwright

“Out of the Game” by Rufus Wainwright

Rufus Wainwright is the king of the theatrical, instrumental, and often strange, all of which make for a killer sound and plenty of headlines. Out of the Game, Wainwright’s newest album and first original recording since early 2010’s All Days Are Nights: Songs for Lulu, is all of the above. Since we last heard a new […]
