“Bring It On Home” by Joan Osborne

“Bring It On Home” by Joan Osborne

As they say, “home is where the heart is” and with the release of her seventh studio album, Bring It On Home, Joan Osborne certainly gets in touch with her roots. Her blues roots that is. Bring It On Home pays homage to some of Osborne’s favorites and inspirations with covers from the greats of […]

Fiona Apple Live In Concert

Fans of Fiona Apple were in for a treat at last night’s show at Boston’s Citi Performing Arts Center. Apple was in top form and gave the crowd roughly an hour and a half of breathtaking and powerful music. She’s touring in support of her fourth album, The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver […]

Blast From The Past: Bikini Kill

Blast From The Past: Bikini Kill

What do you get when you combine the 90s, feminism and riot grrls? BIKINI KILL, OF COURSE. This week’s blast from the past is all about girl power. A few months back I went to see a documentary called From The Back of The Room, which focuses on female, fronted punk and hardcore bands and […]

Revo Radar: Azealia Banks

Revo Radar: Azealia Banks

Born in NYC and raised in Harlem, rapper/singer Azealia Banks has been building up the hype. With her hit single “212″ still making the rounds, Ms. Banks is best known for her dirty, quick-witted rhymes – too dirty to be put onto the radio.

Julia Easterlin, one of the many talented artists performing at the upcoming Songs for Soldiers event, is just a year out of Berklee and already she has performed at SXSW and Lollapalooza. She is a singer/songwriter who does something with her music that I have never seen before: Easterlin is a loop-artist, and the two […]

JEFF The Brotherhood Live

JEFF The Brotherhood Live

I’d heard about JEFF The Brotherhood shows from friends, presented as the stuff of mosh pit legend: sweat, crowdsurfing, and a girl who had to be helped out of a show after she dislocated her knee. JEFF is part of a wave of up-and-coming bands who have taken garage rock into a huge resurgence. Groups […]

Revo Radar: La Fleur

Revo Radar: La Fleur

Flower Power is taking over the electronica air waves, but don’t fret, this groovy spinstress is anything but mellow. Sanna Engdahl by day, La Fleur by night, this Swedish dancer/pharmacist–turned-DJ has been popping up on remix charts since 2006.
