The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced it’s 2013 nominees earlier this week. Artists including Heart, Deep Purple, and Rush are all hopefuls for this year’s prestigious honor.

Perfume Genius at Johnny D’s

Perfume Genius at Johnny D’s

About a hundred people sat at tables for the intimate show Perfume Genius would put on at Johnny D’s in Sommerville, although it felt more like fifty people in the room because of how close we were to one another. The stage sat in the center surrounded by brick walls, neon signs, and an older […]

Artist Of The Week: Adele

Artist Of The Week: Adele

By this time, there is nary an ear that doesn’t ring with familiarity at the first notes of “Rolling in the Deep”, “Rumor Has It”, or “Somebody Like You”, and the person at the office who still has to ask who Adele is gets laughed out of the building. Is that an accurate yardstick for […]

A Look At Musician Perfume Genius

A Look At Musician Perfume Genius

There is nothing quite as beautiful or as elegant or as poignant as the arrangements of Mike Hadreas’, otherwise known as Perfume Genius, music.

Twilight is a very divisive franchise. Many hate it and many love it. Some people appreciate the books and can’t stand the movies. And there are those who swoon for Robert Pattinson and those who call for Kristen Stewart’s blood… okay, maybe those sentiments come from the same crowd. But regardless of how you feel […]

“The Carpenter” by The Avett Brothers

“The Carpenter” by The Avett Brothers

It’s not easy to tread the middle road between mainstream success and credibility. People are quick to pounce on the unexpected, the middling indie band turned arena rock stars, and instantly decry them for simply doing what so many other bands have done before them. After all, think about how many bands we wouldn’t have […]

“The Rhythm You Started” by Sophie Madeleine

“The Rhythm You Started” by Sophie Madeleine

Much of this adorable British girls album was recorded in her home, adding to it that sweet self-layering that makes it so endearing. Some say her sound is similar to Feist, but she’s got some melodies of her own. She’s been involved in a whirlwind since her first album in 2009, Love.Life.Ukulele. Now The Rhythm […]
