First Gig: Humming House

First Gig: Humming House

First Gig is our series at Stereo Subversion that asks various musicians to look back at their first-ever live show. This week, we’ve got a fantastic story from Josh Wolak from Humming House about poorly timed jokes and learning to relax. If you’ve not yet tuned in to the band’s new album, Revelries, you’re missing out […]

Year in Review: SSv’s Favorite Albums of 2014

Well, here we are. At last. The culmination of another year. All the pain, hurt, worry, sadness, joy, fist-pumps (and fist bumps), awkward dancing, drinking, love, music, and art that we had and we experienced throughout 2014 is distilled into this one, unique list. Recapping major events of 2014 seems as much like an exercise […]

Subsequently, I am still waiting for Boys Life to announce their reunion tour plans. Whenever I write about anything […]

Year In Review – The Return of American(a) Music

Elwood: What kind of music do you usually have here? Claire: Oh we got both kinds, Country and Western.
