#songoftheday / VIDEO: The Ready Set – “Fangz”


And now for something completely different... A slamming, electro-pop gem from The Ready Set. No, we didn't exactly see it coming either. "Fangz," as it's called, is a better EDM track than anything on David Guetta's latest album. OK, so it's not quite EDM,...

CONCERT REVIEW: MY BRIGHTEST DIAMOND: 9/22/14: CAMBRIDGE, MA

Shortly after Doe Paoro exited the stage following her superb set at The Sinclair in Cambridge, Massachusetts Monday night, Emperor Norton’s Stationary Marching Band emerged from backstage, playing just about every type of horn instrument in existence along with drummers and even a flutist.

REVIEW: SYLVAN ESSO (WITH DOE PAORO): THE SINCLAIR: 9/10/14

#albumoftheday / REVIEW: BANKS: GODDESS

One of the most interesting things about Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter Jillian Banks’ debut album, Goddess, is how decidedly *not* top 40 it is. Listening to her songs, you can’t help but think “if only.” If only the beats were more boisterous. If only the bass pulsated in a punchier way. If only the...

#albumoftheday / REVIEW: SAINT: IMMACULATE

The first thing you need to know about producer turned avant garde-ish beatsmith Saint is that he’s a genuine enigma. I’ve read his press releases and listened to his album several times, but I still can’t quite wrap my head around him. Perhaps that’s because his songs meld from one genre to another...

#songoftheday / REVIEW: Mo Parker – “SHY”


Mo Parker is actually two people: Classically and jazz trained pianist and singer Mo and trippy R&B beat-maker Domzilla. Their union here couldn't possibly be more intriguing as Mo's piano and soulful vocals ride Domzilla's super deep, low end bass perfectly, resulting in something that sounds...
