Po Boyz

Po Boyz

Po’ Boyz describe their sound as a “soulful gumbo of sounds, fearless souls and spirits.” While they’ve found a strong local following in Boston and have a weekly residency at the Middle East in Cambridge, their sound is deeply rooted in the South, particularly New Orleans, with a touch of 1970′s jam-band riffs. The band’s […]

Sarah Blacker

Sarah Blacker

Sarah Blacker is more than a friend and fan-favorite at WERS, she’s a kindred spirit. Her new EP Perfectly Imperfect is being sold on her website for a name-your-own price starting at $7. Moving up from that, fans get all sorts of thank you gifts from a skype-songwriting lesson to an in-house concert. This kind of […]

Jake Sorgen

Jake Sorgen

We kicked off this year’s Live Music Week with an acoustic, unplugged bang on The Coffee House this morning. Jake Sorgen, Cambridge-based singer-songwriter extraordinaire was ready to go bright and early for a live Coffee House Mini Concert. Jake has a new album coming out in early April called Sudden Myth, which he played three […]

Slow Club Live In Studio

Slow Club Live In Studio

Within the next few weeks, Slow Club will head over for a tour through Australia, where Charles Watson and Rebecca Taylor have performed before in the past. This time around, though, their drummer Avvon Chambers and bassist Stephen Black will be joining them. “We’re looking forward to playing all the new songs. We’re kind of […]

“Come Back As Rain” by Good Old War

“Come Back As Rain” by Good Old War

Pennsylvania trio Good Old War have returned with their third album, Come Back As Rain, with new experiences on their mind. Known for their upbeat sound and perfected harmonies, Keith Goodwin, Dan Schwartz, and Tim Arnold squeeze a new sound of nostalgic blues into the first half of their album. But Good Old War bring […]

SXSW 2012: A Matter of Songs

SXSW 2012: A Matter of Songs

  Songs matter. A week ago when the WERS team heading out for Austin, Texas we anticipated warm weather, good music, and some 6th Street foodcarts. We came back with that fairly simple but important message: Songs matter. Everybody has their press kits—or more accurately bandcamp.com urls—beards, and cowboy hats at the ready, walking 6th […]

Digging Through The Crates #2

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?”

“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. Her latest release, however, What Side Are You On? proves DiFranco’s still got it. With a mixture of her signature acoustic slow jams as well as some with […]

Punch Brothers Live In Studio

They are currently promoting their new album, Who’s Feeling Young Now. The five piece string band members are Chris Thile on mandolin and lead vocals, Noam […]
