However, Apple barely knows how much she has affected the genre; in a recent interview, she […]

“Handwritten” by The Gaslight Anthem

With their recent transition to major label Mercury Records in late 2011, fans of The Gaslight Anthem were left wondering if the New Brunswick natives would sacrifice their signature sound or still be able pull off another album riddled with Springsteen-infused punk.

“Our Version of Events” by Emeli Sandé

“Our Version of Events” by Emeli Sandé

It’s always exciting to get an album from an international artist who hasn’t yet it made it big overseas. We may not know her name yet in the States, but Emeli Sandé is certainly not new to the ears of Brits. A Scottish soul and R&B recording artist and songwriter, Sandé collaborated with Alicia Keys, […]

Motion City Soundtrack on The Left End

Our studio was fortunate enough to welcome in Justin Pierre (vocals) and Joshua Cain (guitar/vocals) of Motion City Soundtrack. Their newest album, Go, has sent them for quite the ride.
