Digging Through The Crates #2

For the past six months or so, all I have been listening to is 90s music. Some borders onto the earlier 2000’s, but for the most part all I listen to is 90s music because to put it bluntly, the 90s were WAY BETTER. The music then was much more original, raw and depressing (I [...]

Digging Through the Crates #1

Dear WERS, How do I describe my love for Sweden to you? Unlike the actual Nordic country (which I also love very much), This entry in the Mountain Goats’ catalogue from 1995 is bursting with warmth, Heat coming off the crackling fire of a dismembered cherry tree in “September 19 Triple X Love! Love!” Or [...]

“Which Side Are You On?”

With over 20 albums, starting her own record company and opening for Bob Dylan under her belt, it is interesting to ponder what’s left for Ani DiFranco.

With hand-clapping and guitar strums that call out like summer, Lee sang “and that’s the way I like it” with a carefree attitude that had the song stuck in listeners’ heads for days. [...]

Bamboozle Preview!

Ten years ago, John D’Esposito decided to create a festival dedicated to punk rock and called it Skate and Surf. This weekend long, sports oriented concert was held in Asbury Park, NJ where bands like Folly, Coheed and Cambria, Moe, and Taking Back Sunday played.

“Voice of Ages” by The Chieftains

In the opening measures of “Carolina Rua”, a flute trills while Imelda May croons “Do you love me?” like someone singing in the shower. Seconds after that, she makes way for an Irish jig and right then fans know The Chieftains are back. To celebrate their 50th anniversary, The Chieftains invite modern musicians to record [...]
