Hamilton Leithauser Live In Studio

For those still mourning the loss of The Walkmen after they announced an indefinite hiatus, there is good news.

The Antlers Live In Studio

The Antlers Live In Studio

While at first a solo project, The Antlers stormed the WERS studio last Tuesday. Peter Silberman, the founding member of the project, and his three band members took the time to play a few songs off of their new album Familiars. Metacritic and Pitchfork have hailed The Antlers latest release, Familiars, as “satisfying” and “a rewarding […]

On the Verge: Ha Ha Tonka

On the Verge: Ha Ha Tonka

Hidden deep within the Ozarks there has been a skillfully kept secret, one that’s made its way into popular culture only in recent years. The secret is its long, large history of folk and Americana music, to which popular genres today owe a lot of their inspiration. Rarely does an audience see those who are still a […]

Courtney Barnett Live In Studio

Courtney Barnett Live In Studio

Despite her country playing their first game in the World Cup, Australian native Courtney Barnett took time to stop by the WERS studio Wednesday to play a few tunes off her new EP, The Double EP: A Sea of Split Peas.

On the Verge: The So So Glos

On the Verge: The So So Glos

Brooklyn punk rock band of brothers, The So So Glos, brought a lot to their WERS studio performance. Their instruments, their friendliness, their attitude, their tattered leather jackets and doc martens, their distinct punk rock odor, but most importantly, their songs. The typically rowdy party animals put their musical suits and ties on and performed more […]

On the Verge: Bronze Radio Return

On the Verge: Gabriel Mintz

Emerson College alum Gabriel Mintz revisited his campus of old in support of his latest record, Future Wars. Although he did not work formally with WERS himself, many of his friends did, and he remembers time spent recording here fondly. “I was in this room.” Mintz laughs and looks around the studio with a charmingly […]

Hurray for the Riff Raff Live In Studio

Hurray for the Riff Raff Live In Studio

Alynda Lee Segarra of Hurray for the Riff Raff is many things: a poet, an artist, a traveler, a feminist, and a musician. When she first started out playing in New Orleans, the only thing she could play was a washboard. Now, she plays guitar, banjo, harmonica, writes her own songs, and recently released her […]

On the Verge: Heathers

When I first heard Heathers – the twin duo of Ellie and Louise Macnamara – sing, I had flashbacks to high school, to the girls who sang the National Anthem games and sang in the hallway to the four chord strumming of the guy who stole your first girlfriend. The teen angst that has never […]

Blitzen Trapper Live In Studio

Blitzen Trapper Live In Studio

“Spielberg doesn’t know how to use any ambiguity,” Blitzen Trapper guitarist Brian Koch said on the topic of Steven Spielberg’s Minority Report. “Its like a Scooby Doo ending where they take the bad guy’s mask off and he’s like, ‘ I would have gotten away with it too if it weren’t for you meddling kids!’” Luckily […]
