“Underneath the Rainbow” by The Black Lips

After logging in six studio albums, ten or more years of extensive touring experience, and releasing a well-received indie-documentary, the resume of The Black Lips, arguably the most hardworking and unstoppable garage punk band around, seems it could not get any longer. Yet the band shows no signs of slowing down and has cranked out […]

Acappellics Anonymous Live In Studio

Acappellics Anonymous is a co-ed a cappella group that started about five years ago at Emerson College. Earlier this year, these talented, young singers won first place in the International Competition of Collegiate A Cappella (ICCA). “That was a very exciting experience,” says Ari Conte, president of Acappellics Anonymous. “That was the first time that […]

“Upside Down Mountain” by Conor Oberst

“Upside Down Mountain” by Conor Oberst

You can take the Conor Oberst out of Bright Eyes, but you can’t take the indie folk out of Conor Oberst. With his distinct, warbling voice and talent for meaningful, poetic lyrics, Oberst’s music is unmistakable no matter what moniker it is released under. There is no denying that Oberst shaped his brand of simple […]

“A Sea of Split Peas” by Courtney Barnett

Courtney Barnett, 24 year old singer/songwriter from Melbourne, Australia, gets the ‘slacker’ label tagged onto her in almost anything ever written about her. I wouldn’t call writing two of the most entertaining and refreshing EPs in recent memory slacking off. I know a lot of slackers, and they can’t find the energy to even listen to […]

“So Long, See You Tomorrow” by Bombay Bicycle Club

It’s been a few years since we’ve seen Bombay Bicycle Club on the scene, but they’ve come back (once again) with a completely different sound. Starting off with a jaunty, layered chorus of guitars, their newest album, So Long, See You Tomorrow enters with an all-new air of theatricality infused with psychedelic, almost pop at times, rock. […]

Damon Albarn Live at Royale

Damon Albarn Live at Royale

It was a little over twenty-years ago when Blur released their seminal album, Parklife. Blur singer Damon Albarn’s toothy grin and tousled brown hair had been a fixture in the British music scene since 1991’s top-fifty UK hit, “She’s So High,” but Parklife was the first time his ambitions were sprawled over the entirety of […]
