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 […]

tUnE-yArDs Live at Royale

tUnE-yArDs Live at Royale

On a stage swathed in pink fabric and watched over by a swarm of blue-irised evil eyes, Tune Yards (ahem, tUnE-yArDs) with opener, Sylvan Esso, wowed Royale’s eager crowd. After watching both bands, it was clear that the headliner could easily hold the party on their own, but the more company, the better. The party was […]

Sharon Van Etten Live at The Sinclair

Sharon Van Etten Live at The Sinclair

Sharon Van Etten and opening act Torres set out to dispel any misconceptions that singer-songwriter acts are tame, captivating a sold-out crowd at The Sinclair with two high-intensity sets. The artists may have preached to the choir though, as there was a palpable, excited buzz going through the young and smart-looking crowd before either act […]

On the Verge: Gabriel Mintz

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 […]

“Burn Your Fire For No Witness” by Angel Olsen

“I quit my dreaming the moment that I found you / I started dancing just to be around you,” Angel Olsen slowly lays out the first lines to “Unfucktheworld.” It is the first track on her latest record, Burn Your Fire For No Witness. Olsen moves in her usual, slow, folky ballad with a slightly […]

“Held in Splendor” by Quilt

In the Japanese language, there is a word to describe the particular kind of light that comes through foliage: komorebi. That we experience light in varying degrees and through different filters is a given, but it’s interesting how we often don’t pause to consider these variations. Quilt’s sophomore album, Held in Splendor, functions similarly as […]
