Throwback Thursday: R.E.M.’s “Document”

For this week’s Throwback Thursday we’re celebrating the 25th anniversary of R.E.M.’s Document by playing tracks from the album. Document‘s original album artwork featured the phrase “file under fire.”  The designation fits this album maybe more so than any other in the deep R.E.M. catalogue.  Not only is fire prominently used (i.e. screamed) in the chorus of “The One […]

Divine Fits at the Royale

Divine Fits at the Royale

By their own admission, Divine Fits are not a supergroup. However, last night at their Boston debut at the Royale, they definitely looked and sounded like one. Formed by Britt Daniel, the leader of indie giants Spoon, Dan Boeckner, of Wolf Parade and Handsome Furs, and Sam Brown, of New Bomb Turks, the band even […]

“Half-Made Man” by Ben Sollee

“Half-Made Man” by Ben Sollee

Beach House at the Wilbur

Beach House at the Wilbur

When explaining the music of Beach House, it’s hard to come up with anything better than “dream pop”. The group has both invented and perfected the niche genre, and Victoria LeGrand and Alex Scally (with excellent touring drummer Daniel Franz in tow) took their act to The Wilbur in Boston’s theater district last night, giving […]
