Ben Lee Live In Studio

Ben Lee Live In Studio

When Ben Lee’s Awake is the New Sleep first landed, people couldn’t get enough of the catchy pop tune “Catch My Disease”. 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!

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. Eventually, Skate and Surf evolved into what most people know […]

“Escape From Electric Mountain”

“Escape From Electric Mountain”

Jon Gooch a.k.a. “Feed Me” has done it again. The man draws influence from about every sub-genre of electronic music you can think of. His latest EP, Escape From Electric Mountain, reminds the old Feed Me fans of his electro-house glory days. He delves into progressive house sounds which work really well. He shows listeners […]

“Voice of Ages” by The Chieftains

“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 […]

“EP #1″ by Handbraekes

“EP #1″ by Handbraekes

So French DJ/cult-filmmaker Mr. Oizo and German electro-wiz Boys Noize are recording and collaborating together. God save us all. Alex Ridha (better known as electro DJ Boys Noize) and Ed-Banger-DJ/film director Quentin Dupiuex (Mr. Oizo) have produced a short EP together under the collective name ‘Handbraekes’. They’re two DJs with very distinct personal styles, and […]

“The Hero In You” by Ellis Paul

“The Hero In You” by Ellis Paul

When you’re a kid, the phrases “concept album” and “folk music” don’t carry much weight. How, then, does Boston native and seasoned indie artist Ellis Paul pull off The Hero In You, an album consisting of tracks each touching upon historical figures from Rosa Parks to his own personal hero Woodie Guthrie? The answer, considering […]

“Onwards to the Wall”

“Onwards to the Wall”

Infamously nicknamed “the loudest band in New York”, A Place to Bury Strangers certainly live up to their title. Every song on Onwards to the Wall blasts a hypnotic array of noise and distortion louder and more packed than the one before. Don’t let this deter you from picking up their latest EP. A band […]

“Ceremonials” by Florence + the Machine

“Ceremonials” by Florence + the Machine

Florence + the Machine’s Ceremonials is our first Album of the Month of 2012. There is more of a gothic tilt to the songwriting and production, both of which can be attributed to producer Paul Epsworth, than on Lungs. Heavy-laden reverb and multi-layered vocal tracks, which include multiple tracks of Flo along with members of […]
