On the Verge: Kingsley Flood

At 4:15 PM each Tuesday, WERS brings you our On the Verge segment which highlights an artist we think is up-and-coming. This week’s artist On The Verge is six-piece rock group Kingsley Flood. Kingsley Flood comes right from Boston’s own backyard, though they share allegiances with from Washington D.C. as well. But we’re happy to […]

The Wild Feathers Live In Studio

The Wild Feathers Live In Studio

“They’re like if Led Zeppelin and The Band had a baby in Joshua Tree that grew up listening to Ryan Adams covering the Stones 70′s country-influenced songs.” That’s the Wild Feathers, according to their Twitter and Facebook bio, at least. After hearing just one or two of their songs, it is easy to call that […]

On the Verge: Vinyl Thief

On the Verge: Vinyl Thief

Nashville’s got a stereotype that’s hard to break, its roots so ingrained in country and folk that it’s hard to imagine anything else budding from their scene. Vinyl Thief, however, have managed to do just that. Energetic indie rock that entwines electronic bursts throughout, their sound was enough to catapult the five person group forward […]

Blitzen Trapper Live In Studio

Blitzen Trapper Live In Studio

It is a terrifically exciting time for Blitzen Trapper; their album is a day from release, they’re on the first legs of their fall tour — and they’re sitting on the floor in-studio joking around in Gollum, Kermit, and Christopher Walken voices. The very silly folk/country quintet is comprised of lead vocalist and guitarist Eric […]

On the Verge: Sanders Bolkhe

At 4:15 PM each Tuesday, WERS brings you our On the Verge segment which highlights an artist we think is up-and-coming. Today’s On The Verge performance comes from folk singer/songwriter Sanders Bohlke. Bohlke debuted on the scene over seven years ago, when he released his self-titled album. Since that time, he’s slowly, yet consistently, been […]

Deer Tick Live In Studio

Deer Tick Live In Studio

“A little bit of indie mixed with some alt-country, sprinkle in some folk, and combine with blues–and here is Deer Tick!” Well, according to their website at least. Fresh off of recording their newest album, Negativity, Deer Tick trekked up from their home in Providence, Rhode Island to stop by the WERS studios. The band, […]

Glenn Tillbrook Live In Studio

Glenn Tillbrook Live In Studio

One of the most respected songwriters of his time, Squeeze’s Glen Tilbrook had composed so many well-crafted songs with bandmate Chris Difford that they earned comparisons to Paul McCartney and John Lennon. Whenever Difford presented Tilbrook with a set of lyrics, Tilbrook went right to work on the instrumentation that, combined with his own vocals, […]

Laura Marling Live In Studio

Laura Marling Live In Studio

Laura Marling, petite and quiet, enters the WERS studios in thin black jeans and simple shoes with nothing except an acoustic guitar and a show at the Somerville Theater to get excited about. At only twenty-three, the British folk singer isn’t much older than the college students that surround her, but couldn’t be in a […]

On the Verge: Mother Falcon

On the Verge: Mother Falcon

Mother Falcon, an orchestral, wondrous force of a band, was kind enough to grace the WERS studio with their sprawling presence, somehow arranging seventeen of their band members in the not-so-spacious live mix room. While the Austin-based band was one of the biggest bands we’ve had in studio, squeezing into a tiny performance space is […]
