“Let The Blunt Go” by Chris Brown

New song from Chris Brown, “Let The Blunt Go” rose to number one on hotnewhiphop.com reaching 76,180 Views on the website the first week.

“On My Mind/In My Heart” by Jesse Dee

“On My Mind/In My Heart” by Jesse Dee

Jesse Dee is undoubtedly one of Boston’s masters of the throwback sound. What might come as a surprise, however, is that this master musician did not pick up his first guitar until he was eighteen.

Steve Reich Premier

Steve Reich Premier

Its very inspiring to see two musicians, who exist in two different realms of music, come together and inspire each other.

According to […]

“In Time” by The Mavericks

Ever since 1989, The Mavericks have been wooing the Western Hemisphere with their country Cuban sound – and despite an eight year hiatus – their new album In Time, released February 26th by Valory Music, proves no less successful.

DeVotchKa Live at HOB

DeVotchKa Live at HOB
