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 may be the best bar band in the world. To the tune of “Comrade Z”, heard live at the House of Blues, March 9, 2013, I found myself remembering a small, dark hotel cafe in northern Paris, where I once drank five-euro rum & cokes while a circle of locals strum and drum their […]

Taylor Swift In Vanity Fair

Taylor Swift In Vanity Fair

It’s safe to say Taylor Swift’s appetite for attention is insatiable and this week’s stunt further proves that statement. In the April issue of Vanity Fair, Taylor Swift inferred that both Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are going to hell for making comments regarding Swift’s love life at the Golden Globes. Throughout the award show, […]

Animal Collective Live At HOB

Animal Collective Live At HOB

Animal Collective kicked off their tour promoting 2012 release Centipede Hz last night at the House of Blues, lighting up the stage with their signature electro-weirdness and tripped out sound.

“Daniel the Brave” by Adam Ezra Group

On their recent album, Daniel the Brave, Boston-based rockers the Adam Ezra Group enter relatively unknown territory. Or, as the group puts it in the album’s liner notes, “Most of the tracks [on the album] are recorded live. Some are first takes. Some involve sounds we’ve never used on an album before.” The result of […]
