Revo Radar: Mr. Oizo

Revo Radar: Mr. Oizo

Mr. Oizo is going mainstream… or maybe not. Mr. Oizo, a French DJ on the Ed Banger label with Justice and SebastiAn, has always been the oddball of the group. His music has been called ‘schizophrenic’, ‘unlistenable’, and ‘absurdist’. Real name Quentin Dupieux, he’s recently gained a reputation as a cult filmmaker and last week […]

Rocky Votolato on Coffeehouse

Rocky Votolato on Coffeehouse

Rocky Votolato recently released his seventh solo album, his first self-produced, and it’s awesome to see how he has grown as an artist since he came into the scene. In the mid 1990s, he was involved in two separate punk bands. Today, his music is distinctly folk – the kind of music you’d like to […]

Revo Radar: Zedd

Revo Radar: Zedd

Europe is home to some of the best and most dedicated electronica artists. Anton Zaslavski, or “Zedd”, a Russian-born German DJ, is one of these rising stars of the electric music genre. A classically trained musician, Zedd began producing his own music in 2002 in a German hard rock trio, Dioramic. In 2009, hearing Justice’s […]

Mieka Pauley at T.T. the Bear’s

It’s not unusual to find a rising star who will blow you off in a crowd, but even rarer to find someone who will stand in a crowd with you pointing at their own opener, and telling you how awesome their peers are. That’s local artist Mieka Pauley for you—an extremely talented, accomplished, and relatable […]

Revo Radar: Steve Aoki

Revo Radar: Steve Aoki

If you’re new to the EDM (Electric Dance Music) culture, then you should be familiar with one of the most recently spoken and mainstreaming artist, Steve Aoki. Aoki, or as others love to call him “Asian Jesus”, has been around longer than one might expect. Not only has he been working for past decade, but […]

“Visions” by Grimes

“Visions” by Grimes

Grimes, aka Montreal-based electro-pop sprite Claire Boucher, is finally breaking through with her third LP ‘Visions’. It’s an irresistible album— it’s dreamy, breezy electro-pop, yet it hides something deep underneath its charm. It’s extremely catchy, and rides on the current wave of 80s-inspired electronic dance music. Yet, the album leaves you with something more. Grimes […]

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 […]
