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 […]

J Mascis Live In Studio

J Mascis Live In Studio

J Mascis makes a whole lot of music. Dinosaur Jr., the influential grunge-rock a band that he fronts, releases a new album every few years since they formed in the early eighties. The massive discography of the band is in itself impressive, but Mascis has been hard at work on his own and is poised […]

“A Dotted Line” by Nickel Creek

“A Dotted Line” by Nickel Creek

The release of A Dotted Line by progressive bluegrass outfit Nickel Creek this April marked the twenty fifth anniversary of the band’s union. An impressive feat, considering the group’s oldest member, Sean Watkins, is only 37 years old. Siblings Sarah and Sean Watkins, along with childhood friend Chris Thile, burst onto the bluegrass scene as […]

Miniature Tigers Live at Brighton Music Hall

  Miniature Tigers brought an indie-pop party to Brighton Music Hall, joined by energetic openers Yellerkin, Finish Ticket, and The Griswolds. The show began early to accommodate the packed lineup, but most concertgoers came out on time. The young audience packed into the front area of the stage, nobody wanting to miss the opportunity to […]

Singin’ in the Rain Live In Studio

Singin’ in the Rain Live In Studio

  Theater is truly at its best when the performers are in love with the show they’re performing. That will happen in time with most performances, but when Reagle Music Theatre’s cast of Singin’ in the Rain stopped by the WERS studio, they were two performances into their run, a little over two weeks into […]

“Black Hours” by Hamilton Leithauser

“Black Hours” by Hamilton Leithauser

Black Hours is an album I have been looking forward to getting my hands on for some time. Initially set to be released in early May, Hamilton Leithauser’s debut as a solo artist dropped about a month later on June third for reasons unknown. The delay really didn’t matter much, since Black Hours singles “Alexandra” and “11 O’Clock […]

“Ghost Stories” by Coldplay

“Ghost Stories” by Coldplay

Though they hardly need an introduction, Coldplay has been a tour-de-force since their formation the mid-nineties at University College London.  Their last two albums, Viva La Vida in 2008 and Mylo Xyloto in 2011, saw the band moving away from the dream-rock sound that catapulted them to fame, and experimenting with more complex instrumentation and […]

“Ultraviolence” by Lana Del Rey

“Ultraviolence” by Lana Del Rey

At the young age of eighteen, Elizabeth Woolridge Grant signed her first record deal with 5 Points Records. Although she had previously recorded and released music as May Jailer and Lizzie Grant, from then on, she took the name Lana Del Rey and quickly catapulted into international stardom. Her release of Lana Del Rey in 2010 and particularly Born […]
