“Swing Lo Magellan” by the Dirty Projectors

The buzz surrounding the Dirty Projectors latest album Swing Lo Magellan, which follows 2009’s Bitte Orca, is that it is the band’s attempt at an album that is more accessible to audiences. The main result is that many of the songs are laid back and toned down. However, Swing Lo Magellan lacks songs that are [...]

Fiona Apple’s name has become synonymous with independent music as we know it today—since her auspicious debut in 1996, the singer has become a figurehead for the found music sound and a first-person, exceedingly personal style that continues today. However, Apple barely knows how much she has affected the genre; in a recent interview, she [...]

“Handwritten” by The Gaslight Anthem

With their recent transition to major label Mercury Records in late 2011, fans of The Gaslight Anthem were left wondering if the New Brunswick natives would sacrifice their signature sound or still be able pull off another album riddled with Springsteen-infused punk. Needless to say, Gaslight has indeed done it again. Handwritten, the follow-up to [...]
