Revo Radar: Swedish House Mafia

Revo Radar: Swedish House Mafia

June 23rd, 2012 was a devastating day for dance music fans all over the globe. After four years of dominating the EDM world, the DJ super group Swedish House Mafia announced that they would be splitting up after their upcoming tour. The powerhouse trio left a message on their website saying, “We want to thank […]

Blast From The Past: Bikini Kill

Blast From The Past: Bikini Kill

What do you get when you combine the 90s, feminism and riot grrls? BIKINI KILL, OF COURSE. This week’s blast from the past is all about girl power. A few months back I went to see a documentary called From The Back of The Room, which focuses on female, fronted punk and hardcore bands and […]

Revo Radar: Azealia Banks

Revo Radar: Azealia Banks

Born in NYC and raised in Harlem, rapper/singer Azealia Banks has been building up the hype. With her hit single “212″ still making the rounds, Ms. Banks is best known for her dirty, quick-witted rhymes – too dirty to be put onto the radio. But when look you behind her rapid-fire wordplay and sexual disses, […]

The Hives at the House of Blues

The Hives at the House of Blues

A slightly overweight teen and his mom stand at the front of the floor area at the House of Blues, and she was concerned. “Is there going to be shoving?” she asked. “Jumping?” She was not ready for the force of nature that was about to take the stage—Howlin’ Pelle Almqvist and the legendary Swedish […]

JEFF The Brotherhood Live

JEFF The Brotherhood Live

I’d heard about JEFF The Brotherhood shows from friends, presented as the stuff of mosh pit legend: sweat, crowdsurfing, and a girl who had to be helped out of a show after she dislocated her knee. JEFF is part of a wave of up-and-coming bands who have taken garage rock into a huge resurgence. Groups […]

Revo Radar: La Fleur

Revo Radar: La Fleur

Flower Power is taking over the electronica air waves, but don’t fret, this groovy spinstress is anything but mellow. Sanna Engdahl by day, La Fleur by night, this Swedish dancer/pharmacist–turned-DJ has been popping up on remix charts since 2006. After gaining popularity in the Swedish night scene, she ranked #6 in Sweden’s Top 100 DJs […]

Sofia Talvik on The Left End

Sofia Talvik on The Left End

For thirty-three-year-old Swedish artist and folk veteran Sofia Talvik, it’s all about committing to the cause. For a woman who’s committing herself to a two-year, worldwide tour, a new album, and a voice and personality that never seems to tire, no artist seems better suited to the task. We know what you’re thinking… a two […]

Revo Radar: A-Trak

Revo Radar: A-Trak

If you haven’t heard of “Barbra Streisand”, then I don’t know what the Duck Sauce you’re waiting for. That is A-Trak and he has been rolling the globe for years, his works even being covered on X-Factor and Glee. Well, enough of the puns (for now). A-Trak is just a “Big Bad Wolf” that started […]

John Fullbright on Coffeehouse

John Fullbright on Coffeehouse

For this week’s edition of The Coffeehouse, we at WERS were fortunate enough to have John Fullbright come in studio for a live session. Fullbright’s first studio album, From the Ground Up, was released earlier this year, but this was not his first album.  Contrary to standard industry practice, his first release was actually a […]

Digging Through the Crates #5

Digging Through the Crates #5

A few months ago I had the pleasure of interviewing Mr. Mike Kinsella, the front man of projects like Owen and American Football along with the drummer of Cap’n Jazz. If you don’t know who Mike Kinsella is, then you are missing out on a really important part of the 90s: emo. People now consider […]
