“Chop Chop” by Bell X1

Bell X1, the rock outlet from Ireland, changed up their sound on their sixth studio release, Chop Chop. Backed by Peter Katis, a producer for The National, the album plays off a very similar sound to High Violet but also goes in its own creative direction that you would not typically expect from Bell X1.

“All People” by Michael Franti & Spearhead

Michael Franti & Spearhead’s newest album, All People, is a mercurial mélange of influences, styles, and messages.

“MCII” by Mikal Cronin

“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. String arrangements trickle in on a couple of tracks and above all, each song is wound together with polished, catchy pop vocals that have you singing along before […]

On the Verge: Wild Moccasins

On the Verge: Wild Moccasins

The Houston-based, five piece indie-pop band Wild Moccasins did a few things differently when they came to the WERS studio. For one, they were short a member, arriving without drummer John Baldwin.
