“Wild Animals” by Trampled by Turtles

“Wild Animals” by Trampled by Turtles

In the music video for their track “Wild Animals,” Minnesota-based Trampled by Turtles make it clear that they’ve got a message to send. A tired taxi driver picks a staggering girl up off the street who immediately passes out in the back seat. As the video follows the driver along through the overcrowded and neon-lit city, […]

“Ultraviolence” by Lana Del Rey

“Ultraviolence” by Lana Del Rey

At the young age of eighteen, Elizabeth Woolridge Grant signed her first record deal with 5 Points Records. Although she had previously recorded and released music as May Jailer and Lizzie Grant, from then on, she took the name Lana Del Rey and quickly catapulted into international stardom. Her release of Lana Del Rey in 2010 and particularly Born […]

Grizfolk Live at Great Scott

Grizfolk Live at Great Scott

The Box Tiger may have been a somewhat unexpected and rather genre-contending addition to WERS’ 65th birthday show with Grizfolk, but we could not have been happier to have them celebrate with us. Frontwoman Sonia Sturino had the crowd on its toes, one moment overly apologetic and the next delectably in-your-face. Either way, if the […]

“Underneath the Rainbow” by The Black Lips

“Underneath the Rainbow” by The Black Lips

After logging in six studio albums, ten or more years of extensive touring experience, and releasing a well-received indie-documentary, the resume of The Black Lips, arguably the most hardworking and unstoppable garage punk band around, seems it could not get any longer. Yet the band shows no signs of slowing down and has cranked out […]

Acappellics Anonymous Live In Studio

Acappellics Anonymous Live In Studio

Acappellics Anonymous is a co-ed a cappella group that started about five years ago at Emerson College. Earlier this year, these talented, young singers won first place in the International Competition of Collegiate A Cappella (ICCA). “That was a very exciting experience,” says Ari Conte, president of Acappellics Anonymous. “That was the first time that […]

“Upside Down Mountain” by Conor Oberst

“Upside Down Mountain” by Conor Oberst

You can take the Conor Oberst out of Bright Eyes, but you can’t take the indie folk out of Conor Oberst. With his distinct, warbling voice and talent for meaningful, poetic lyrics, Oberst’s music is unmistakable no matter what moniker it is released under. There is no denying that Oberst shaped his brand of simple […]

“A Sea of Split Peas” by Courtney Barnett

Courtney Barnett, 24 year old singer/songwriter from Melbourne, Australia, gets the ‘slacker’ label tagged onto her in almost anything ever written about her. I wouldn’t call writing two of the most entertaining and refreshing EPs in recent memory slacking off. I know a lot of slackers, and they can’t find the energy to even listen to […]

Emerson Treble Makers Live In Studio

Emerson Treble Makers Live In Studio

  The Boston-based group known for making sweet, sweet treble joined WERS in the studio for All A Capella. This dynamic group, whose trademark is their large size, flexed their vocal chords and technical skills in the studio. Emerson’s Treble Makers are relatively young in the among the established company of the area’s A Capella scene, […]

The Antlers Live In Studio

The Antlers Live In Studio

While at first a solo project, The Antlers stormed the WERS studio last Tuesday. Peter Silberman, the founding member of the project, and his three band members took the time to play a few songs off of their new album Familiars. Metacritic and Pitchfork have hailed The Antlers latest release, Familiars, as “satisfying” and “a rewarding […]
