Dry the River Live in Studio

Dry the River Live in Studio

  While fans may have seen Dry the River’s acoustic version of their first album, Shallow Bed, as a reflection of what was happening in the U.K. at the time, they wanted to take a step back with their newest album Alarms in the Heart and show something else. They even wrote all the songs […]

LeoLeo Live in Studio

LeoLeo Live in Studio

The equally passionate and atmospheric music played by Leo*Leo can accurately be summarized by its guitarist and vocalist, Vanessa Wheeler, who said the music allows the duo (and its listeners) to “let go”. Leo*Leo, composed of Sarah Hope (drummer, synths, producer) and Vanessa Wheeler (voice, electric guitar, composition), have created a hybrid rock and jazz […]

Hozier Live at The Paradise

Hozier Live at The Paradise

This Halloween, Hozier rung in the holiday right by stunning an eager audience with his haunting vocals and adorably spooky decorations. On a stage adorned with jack-o-lanterns and skeletons, Hozier and opener James Bay jammed in costume and make up, appeasing the frantic crowd—many of whom had stood waiting in the cold for over an […]

Lykke Li Live In Studio

Lykke Li Live In Studio

I was originally scared to ask Lykke Li for an interview. She had just finished her studio recording (where she beautifully played “Gunshot”, “I Never Learn”, and “Silverline”) and was frowning. When she left the room she instantly wanted to hear the recording again. She bickered about it a little bit and sighed in frustration. […]

King Tuff Live In Studio

King Tuff Live In Studio

There are very few people on this earth who could pull off wearing a ratty Slayer t-shirt and a trucker hat emblazoned with the enigmatic phrase “SURF SCHOOL SHARKS” without seeming like he or she is trying too hard to be a part of the ironic zeitgeist, and, by the grace of god, Kyle Thomas, […]

Bent Shapes Live In Studio

Bent Shapes Live In Studio

  On October 22, the band Bent Shapes took to the WERS studio for a live mix and interview. The four-piece from Boston played three songs in their “jango-pop” style, two of which were new. “New Starts and Old Dominions” had a crisper sound than the first song and was very fun to listen to […]

Yuna Live In Studio

Yuna Live In Studio

“People are like, ‘oh you work too much’. But I love it, you know?” Yuna’s eyes can’t help but light up as she explains her unintentional life mantra. As a singer, songwriter, and fashion designer, Malaysian musician Yuna is accustomed to creating a balance of chaos. But amidst the jumble of cords, headphones, and instruments […]

J Mascis Live at The Sinclair

J Mascis Live at The Sinclair

When the road crew brings out a purple stool, purple amplifiers, purple music stand (complete with purple binder), and a microphone with what appears to be purple tape wrapped around it, it is reasonable to expect the upcoming act to be flashy and visually compelling. Those expectations, however, were shot down for all first-time audience […]

Pond Live at The Sinclair

Pond Live at The Sinclair

Pond has a reputation of being the wild younger brother of Australian psych rock band Tame Impala. Seeing that this is how many people learned of them, it’s difficult for Pond, consisting of many members of Tame Impala, to break free from the overshadowing association. After seeing Pond at The Sinclair in Cambridge, it is ever so clear […]
