Steve Reich, the minimalist composer of Music for 18 Musicians (along many other fabulous compositions), announced early last year that he was going to premiere a piece of music titled “Radio Rewrite”.

DeVotchKa Live at HOB

DeVotchKa Live at HOB

“Daniel the Brave” by Adam Ezra Group

“Daniel the Brave” by Adam Ezra Group

On their recent album, Daniel the Brave, Boston-based rockers the Adam Ezra Group enter relatively unknown territory. Or, as the group puts it in the album’s liner notes, “Most of the tracks [on the album] are recorded live. Some are first takes. Some involve sounds we’ve never used on an album before.” The result of […]
