“Underneath the Rainbow” by The Black Lips

“Underneath the Rainbow” by The Black Lips

After logging in six studio albums, ten or more years of extensive touring experience, and releasing a well-received indie-documentary, the resume of The Black Lips, arguably the most hardworking and unstoppable garage punk band around, seems it could not get any longer. Yet the band shows no signs of slowing down and has cranked out […]

Hamilton Leithauser Live In Studio

Hamilton Leithauser Live In Studio

For those still mourning the loss of The Walkmen after they announced an indefinite hiatus, there is good news. Hamilton Leithauser, the band’s former frontman, embarked on his own solo project that encompasses all the great qualities of The Walkmen and more. Leithauser’s first full-length album, Black Hours, came out in June and he stopped by the […]

“Upside Down Mountain” by Conor Oberst

“Upside Down Mountain” by Conor Oberst

You can take the Conor Oberst out of Bright Eyes, but you can’t take the indie folk out of Conor Oberst. With his distinct, warbling voice and talent for meaningful, poetic lyrics, Oberst’s music is unmistakable no matter what moniker it is released under. There is no denying that Oberst shaped his brand of simple […]

“A Sea of Split Peas” by Courtney Barnett

Courtney Barnett, 24 year old singer/songwriter from Melbourne, Australia, gets the ‘slacker’ label tagged onto her in almost anything ever written about her. I wouldn’t call writing two of the most entertaining and refreshing EPs in recent memory slacking off. I know a lot of slackers, and they can’t find the energy to even listen to […]

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 […]

Air Traffic Controller Live at The Sinclair

Air Traffic Controller Live at The Sinclair

Four Boston-based bands gathered at The Sinclair in a grand celebration of WERS’ 65th, bringing with them their own style of music, dance, and birthday cheer! Bent Shapes opened the evening with garage-charm and good humor aimed at a small but growing crowd. Formerly known as Girlfriends, the trio – guitarist Ben Potrykus, bassist Supriya Gunda, […]

Damon Albarn Live at Royale

Damon Albarn Live at Royale

It was a little over twenty-years ago when Blur released their seminal album, Parklife. Blur singer Damon Albarn’s toothy grin and tousled brown hair had been a fixture in the British music scene since 1991’s top-fifty UK hit, “She’s So High,” but Parklife was the first time his ambitions were sprawled over the entirety of […]

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. The piece is a combination of Barnett’s previous EPs and provides a put together […]

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 […]
