“A Wasteland Companion” by M. Ward

“A Wasteland Companion” by M. Ward

M. Ward’s seventh studio album is the first to actually feature his likeness on its cover: A Wasteland Companion pictures the indie-folk artist’s majestically silhouetted pompadour set against an image of the moon. The album, which was released on April 10 by Merge Records, was recorded in eight studios and six cities (From west to […]

“Bloom” by Beach House

“Bloom” by Beach House

Dream pop duo Beach House dropped their fourth studio length album this month on Sub Pop records – Bloom. It’s been two years since we last heard from Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally with Teen Dream. While Teen Dream was wildly successful and hailed as one of the best albums of 2012, Bloom was undoubtedly born […]

On the Verge: Poor Moon

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 Poor Moon, the side project of Casey Wescott and Christian Wargo of Fleet Foxes. Don’t worry, Fleet Foxes are still around and Wargo and Wescott are still members!

On the Verge: honeyhoney

On the Verge: honeyhoney

Santo and Ben Jaffe, the two core members of California band honeyhoney, were incredibly amusing to witness in person with their back and forth wisecracks and playful sarcasm. Their conversational chemistry lends itself well to their music, which pulls from rootsy stylings and adds them to the roster of impressive new Americana and folk musicians. […]

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros

“Let’s try it,” seemed to be the motto of the night for Alex Ebert, the lead singer of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. With a twelve-man band playing a brand new album, Here, coming out on May 29th, Saturday’s show at the Orpheum was all about experimenting with their largely expanded song set. “The […]

Regina Spektor at the Orpheum

Regina Spektor at the Orpheum

Regina Spektor knows what her audience wants, and there’s nothing she loves more than holding back to drive them nuts. The Orpheum buzzed Thursday evening after openers and Spektor’s good friends Only Son left the stage after a five-song set. The six-piece group (including, we kid not, a designated tambourine player) has accompanied Spektor on […]

Feist Live at House of Blues

Feist Live at House of Blues

Canadian singer Feist is most widely known for her song “1234,” a track featured in numerous commercials and feel-good videos. When she took the House of Blues’ stage this Monday however, she stayed away from her popular track, instead delving into other works. She didn’t need a counting song to show why she’s still a […]

On the Verge: Plants and Animals

On the Verge: Plants and Animals

Every Tuesday at 4:15pm, WERS highlights an artist we think is up-and-coming in our weekly On The Verge series. This week we are featuring Montreal based indie-rockers, Plants And Animals! Plants And Animals were formed back in 2004 by Warren Spicer (vocals and guitars), Nic Basque (vocals, bass, keys, guitars) and Matthew Woodley (drums, vocals). […]

Andrew Bird Live In Studio

Andrew Bird Live In Studio

Making a name for yourself is hard to do in a time where new bands are constantly emerging, begging for the spotlight and labeling themselves with a genre. Andrew Bird, whose first album came out in 1996, has worked diligently not only to come up with a trademark sound, but to defy simple stereotypes. “I […]

Good Old War at the Paradise

Good Old War at the Paradise

Some musicians are rock stars and let the lights separate them from the crowd. A number are inverted cabin dwellers, too timid to engage with the crowd. Others are worried about their future and plan every sentence they will say onstage. But folk band Good Old War is none of these; they’re a family with […]
