For many, Sunday night meant the annual MTV VMAs. I’m sure you’ve all read about the show or even watched it live and now, depressed at how far western civilization has fallen, you’re now ready for the sun to explode and destroy us all. BUT WAIT, there’s hope! Because hidden amongst all of the empty […]

“American Kid” by Patty Griffin

Patty Griffin’s Americana folk has been a staple in American music since the early ‘90s after being discovered while playing her way through Boston coffee houses.

“MCII” by Mikal Cronin

In Mikal Cronin’s latest album, MCII, we get a juicy assembly of ten tracks clenching reverb that swings in and out of Cronin’s quintessential nineties, garage-rock guitar.

On the Verge: Wild Moccasins

“The Hurry and the Harm” by City and Colour

“The Hurry and the Harm” by City and Colour

I’m still not sure if I’m over everything that City and Colour’s Dallas Green put us through with his debut, Sometimes (I Wish). It is the articulation for everyone who has lost something too great, to have the ability to speak just yet. Ever since, Green has been giving us so much sorrow to sulk, […]
