The indie-pop band, known for their dynamic and peppy live performances, and cheerful instrumentals, played 3 songs off of their third and latest album, Safe Travels. The […]

Night Moves Live In Studio

Night Moves Live In Studio

The term psychedelic-country is an unusual and seemingly arbitrary genre tag used to describe the music of Minneapolis band Night Moves that didn’t quite make sense until I actually saw them in person. The description of their music manifested itself in their presence more obviously than in their music, with their style being half hippy, […]

Butterworth & Co. Live In Studio

It was hard to guess what type of music local Boston act Butterworth & Co were going to play when they arrived at the WERS studio.

“Bucket List” Day at SXSW

“Bucket List” Day at SXSW

I’ll probably think of my last day at SXSW as the “bucket list” day. That is to say that I crossed a whole lot of names off of the mental list of artists that I’d love to see but never had. Just on Friday alone I saw Emmylou Harris, Divine Fits (who I interviewed on […]
