Line & Circle

Line & Circle

Sharing has always been Brian Cohen’s goal. The man behind Line & Circle says it took some time to be proud enough of his own compositions to reveal them to others, but once he opened up, critics completely agreed. KEXP called Line & Circle “the next best thing from Los Angeles” and both Rolling Stone […]

Jenny & Tyler

Jenny & Tyler

If the sound of another guy-girl duo makes you feel like there’s too many to count, you’re not the only one. There’s plenty of musical pairs these days, no matter your flavor, but fortunately there’s something beyond the typical sweetness of most pop duos that mark the music of Nashville’s own Jenny & Tyler. The talent is […]

Earl Burrows

Earl Burrows

Mark Watrous wanted to chart his own course. After playing with The Shins, The Raconteurs, Shudder to Think, Brendan Benson and others, Mark decided it was time to forge his own path with a set of songs to call his own. In fact, he went out of the way to avoid any comparisons to the bands […]

Colleen Green

Colleen Green

Colleen Green is a woman whose confidence manifests itself through her blunt answers. She gets to the point without overdoing it and rambling on. Her songs can be described in the same manner. The lyrics are blunt, baring it all with enough emotional restraint to make her point. This is how music should be. While […]

Jill Andrews

Jill Andrews

Jill Andrews has had a long career as a musician and writer. But longevity doesn’t make it easier to sustain that career, especially in the current musical climate. Despite the uphill battle, Andrews has released The War Inside her first LP of new music since 2011’s The Mirror. Much of what makes The War Inside so appealing is Andrews’ unflinching honesty, […]

Wild Child

Wild Child

Fools was written as a front to back album. Wild Child, Austin’s beloved indie pop collective, is quite confident in their brand new third album (out Oct 2 on Dualtone), knowing they set aside the distractions and carved out the time to create an album that would make them proud. Alexander Beggins says few albums really measure up these […]

ON AN ON

ON AN ON

ON AN ON immediately took hold of our attention with their album Give In back in 2013, a haunting, hypnotic debut that remains in heavy play even two years later. The Minneapolis trio toured both North America and Europe and built a sizable following in the process. The sophomore album has a lot of ears waiting for […]

Nick Flora

Nick Flora

Nick Flora is a storyteller, first and foremost. Whether they’re the engaging perspectives of his songs or the stories he helps to share on his popular podcast, Who Writes This Stuff, Flora uses them as vehicles to connect emotionally with his listeners, often with hefty doses of hilarity. It’s the substance of Flora’s style, a high level […]

Painted Palms

Painted Palms

Chris Prudhomme and Reese Donohue need their space. The cousins are back with a brand new Painted Palms album, Horizons, one that was crafted in separate spaces in order to have the requisite solitude to create. As Prudhomme says, he’s just not ready for anything else. No matter how they get there, Horizons testifies to the “if it ain’t broke” maxim. Horizons is […]

The Dig

The Dig

For a band cocooned in the studio, The Dig are still fairly connected. As they continue to work on the follow-up to the dreamy six-song EP You & I, the quartet have given us bits and pieces to stay connected and perhaps show us a taste of their musical development. Back in March, director Terence Nance directed a […]
