On the Verge: He’s My Brother, She’s My Sister

While sibling relationships in bands are not uncommon, having your landlord playing slide guitar next to you certainly is. That’s where Aaron Robinson comes […]

Rolie Polie Guacamole Live In Studio

Rolie Polie Guacamole Live In Studio

When you think of kid’s music, what do you see? Freddy Spaghetti, Raffi? A jaded hipster in a colorful costume alluding to some bizarre form of Brazilian Anime? Or some shyster trying to mesmerize infants into action like Mogatu hypnotizing Derek Zoolander? Rolie Polie Guacamole skips stones over those clichés and splash onto the scene […]

On the Verge: Tom Odell

On the Verge: Tom Odell

His first full-length album, Long Way Down, came out June 24th, yet Tom Odell has already made quite the name for himself. The British folk-rocker won this year’s BRIT Critic’s Choice Award (previously won by successful artists like Ellie Goulding, Adele, and Florence and the Machine), and played at South by Southwest. Pretty impressive for […]

Soft Focus Live In Studio

Soft Focus Live In Studio

“I want my burrito, Dad!” Sam Glassberg shouts as he recounts a story about a family he saw on the T with fellow bandmates Joe Holcomb and Garren Orr. The good-humored chatter and playfulness continues during their warm up, but soon the band Soft Focus slowly lets the sound of steady drums and slow-picking guitar […]

Camera Obscura Live In-Studio

Since its inception in 1996, the band earned the blessings of late British DJ John Peel, survived multiple line-up changes, and released five critically well-received albums. Camera Obscura’s latest, Desire Lines, just came out in June and the band is currently […]

Brendan Kelley on Coffeehouse

Brendan Kelley on Coffeehouse

Brendan Kelley, a Massachusetts-native, brought his soulful, bluesy music into the WERS studio for a performance for the Coffeehouse, and WERS was thrilled to have him.
