“Guster: Live Acoustic”

The Boston natives in Guster may be known for their onstage humor, but their newest release Guster: Live Acoustic is all about the music. The band’s latest release, recorded live on their Spring 2012 acoustic tour with the Guster String Players packs all of the punch without any of the unnecessary bells and whistles. The [...]

“The Lives Inside…” by Matt Pond

Born and raised in New Hampshire, New England native Matt Pond has quite the success story. His name may not ring a bell, but you have probably heard his work on the small and big screens. A song featured in a Starbucks’ holiday commercial (“Snow Day”) as well as co-writing the score for the film [...]

“Bang Bang Boom Boom” by Beth Hart

“Mala” by Devendra Banhart

It’s the feeling you get when you find yourself somewhere that dances on the line between familiar and new. A sort of déjà-vu where you can’t tell if you’ve been here before in a dream or in reality. Sort of exciting but still strangely comfortable. This is Devendra Banhart’s newest LP release, Mala (2013). A [...]

“Comedown Machine” by The Strokes

“The Invisible Way” by Low

Fans of slow, sad music should rejoice because Low’s latest album is some of the best you can find. Don’t be fooled – this is isn’t background music or music to fall asleep to. It’s far too engaging for that. Simple instrumentation plays the role of backdrop to Alan Sparhawk (what a cool name!) and [...]
