Sharon Van Etten Live at The Sinclair

Sharon Van Etten Live at The Sinclair

Sharon Van Etten and opening act Torres set out to dispel any misconceptions that singer-songwriter acts are tame, captivating a sold-out crowd at The Sinclair with two high-intensity sets. The artists may have preached to the choir though, as there was a palpable, excited buzz going through the young and smart-looking crowd before either act […]

On the Verge: Bronze Radio Return

On the Verge: Bronze Radio Return

The WERS studio was crowded this afternoon when Bronze Radio Return stopped by to play a couple songs for On the Verge. The Hartford Connecticut based band is made up of six musicians: Chris Henderson, Patrick Fetkowitz, Robert Tanen, Matthew Warner, Robert Griffith, and Craig Struble.  Everyone was in high spirits as they set up […]

On the Verge: Gabriel Mintz

Emerson College alum Gabriel Mintz revisited his campus of old in support of his latest record, Future Wars. Although he did not work formally with WERS himself, many of his friends did, and he remembers time spent recording here fondly. “I was in this room.” Mintz laughs and looks around the studio with a charmingly […]

“Held in Splendor” by Quilt

In the Japanese language, there is a word to describe the particular kind of light that comes through foliage: komorebi. That we experience light in varying degrees and through different filters is a given, but it’s interesting how we often don’t pause to consider these variations. Quilt’s sophomore album, Held in Splendor, functions similarly as […]

Hurray for the Riff Raff Live In Studio

Hurray for the Riff Raff Live In Studio

Alynda Lee Segarra of Hurray for the Riff Raff is many things: a poet, an artist, a traveler, a feminist, and a musician. When she first started out playing in New Orleans, the only thing she could play was a washboard. Now, she plays guitar, banjo, harmonica, writes her own songs, and recently released her […]

On the Verge: Heathers

When I first heard Heathers – the twin duo of Ellie and Louise Macnamara – sing, I had flashbacks to high school, to the girls who sang the National Anthem games and sang in the hallway to the four chord strumming of the guy who stole your first girlfriend. The teen angst that has never […]

“Voices” by Phantogram

Things aren’t always what they seem. Take a phantogram for example. By definition, a phantogram is an optical illusion that plays with depth and distortion to make a two-dimensional object appear three-dimensional. The male-female duo that makes up Phantogram plays with the very same perspective on their latest album, Voices. Hailing from upstate New York, musicians Sarah […]
