Wilco’s Solid Sound Festival Returns

Wilco’s Solid Sound Festival Returns

When I think of Wilco, I don’t necessarily think of a large festival band. I think of the critically acclaimed indie group’s iconic albums like the iconic controversial Yankee Foxtrot Hotel, the Grammy winning A Ghost is Born, or their latest release The Whole Love. But two years ago Wilco became a big festival name [...]

Fans at last night’s sold out Dinosaur Jr. show at The Paradise Rock Club were in for a treat as the legendary alternative-rock band delivered a delightful set full of classic hits as well as new material.

On that album, Khan created lush soundscapes and paired them against her elegantly haunting vocals to create a sound distinctly hers.

This Week In Music History

This Week In Music History

Happy last day of November! The lights on the Boston Common are lit, the tree is up and the holidays are officially upon us in full swing. Here’s the last of your music history fix for November. In 1999, Elton John really ruffled feathers when he appeared on stage at London’s Royal Albert Hall performing [...]

“Hands of Glory” by Andrew Bird

Self-proclaimed “singer, violinist, whistler,” Andrew Bird has come to be recognized as one of the more refined, yet accessible musicians in today’s popular indie rock scene. This classically trained artist’s instruments are not sopping wet with effects and reverb, his concerts don’t utilize gaudy light displays, and his poetic lyrics don’t make contemporary pop culture [...]

“Twins” by Ty Segall
