Wild Beasts’ synthy new album Boy King is out now and is a breath-taking alt pop masterpiece. It’s the sort of record Radiohead might be making if they weren’t so abstract these days. From the opening one-two punch of “Boy King” and “Tough Guy” through closer “Dreamliner,” there isn’t a bad song in...Read more

Our thoughts and prayers are with Paris tonight. I am especially saddened and upset by this news because I’ve been to Paris four times and truly feel as though my heart resides there. The reason I went to Paris was often to see concerts. Mylene Farmer at Bercy. Vanessa Paradis and Raphael at...Read more
Boston Calling day two was a blast yesterday! We’ll have full coverage tomorrow, but for now a few words… DOOMTREE: High energy rapping with big beats… BC might not have a hip-hop headliner this time around, but Doomtree filled the rap void nicely.
