Top Notch: The Best of The Week

Top Notch: The Best of The Week

I don’t think I’m exaggerating when I say that I know at least twenty people who are 100% amped for the Manchester Orchestra show at House of Blues on Monday, the 21st. Hot on the heels of their very recent release ”Cope,” the band is rocking their way into town. This can only be matched by seasoned opener Kevin Devine and The Goddamn Band. Devine released two amazing records last year, and his show at Fitzgerald’s proved that he brings his “A” game when he plays.…

INTERVIEW: Living the “Jet Life” an interview with JLR newest signee LE$

It was as if someone had neatly packaged a jazz ensemble into a smooth beat and matched it with vocals that blended beautifully. It was something I wanted to immediately place in my car stereo and go find an empty highway to ride.…

Let’s Get Crazy: The Best of The Week

Let’s get this straight, Slick Rick is a legend and if you agree then you should grab your tickets ASAP and make it out for his 25th Anniversary Tour. “The Great Adventures of Slick Rick” was one of those albums a white kid from the suburbs like me would hide from his Conservative parents’ eyes.…

Local Love: Catch Fever

If I hadn’t had seen the band perform the album live, I would have written the record off as studio trickery. However, the only trick here, is that this was made by a band who hasn’t been around for a full two years.…

HEY MAN, HAVE YOU HEARD?! : Chronicles of Music Listening

This is maybe a tale of Justin Trosper and Brandt Sandeno. They played together in Giant Henry, they played together in the earliest and final stages of Unwound, they played together in the Replikants, and all these years later they are together again in Survival Knife. …

New Blue Feeling: The Best of the Week

New Blue Feeling: The Best of the Week

On Saturday, over at Fitzgerald’s the guys from Austin’s White Denim will be back in town on the heels of two solid releases. The epic and Jeff Tweedy produced “Corsicana Lemonade” was almost in my best of 2013 list; and easily one of the better “turnaround” albums I’d heard in a long while. A far stretch from their Brit rock beginnings, the album proved that bands can still grow and find their sound. What’s left is nothing short of an old school rock masterpiece complete with that alternative country twang of early Wilco albums. Not to be outdone, the band followed up with “The Pretty Green” EP, that adds to the allure of their ever changing existence.…
