Christine Campbell
No comments

Every once in a while, you come across a musician or group and after listening to a handful of songs, think to yourself “How have I been missing out on this awesome band for so long?” Enter Dirty Three, an instrumental trio featuring Mick Turner on guitar, Jim White on drums and Warren Ellis on…

album review: air, le voyage dans la lune

Christine Campbell
No comments

A long time ago, Dunja sent out a note to us Lip music contributors saying we had access to review EMI releases. I was ecstatic when I saw the newest AIR release, Le voyage dans la lune, listed available for review. An ex-boyfriend of sorts got me into French electronic-pop duo AIR back in college….

why i hate the grammys

Christine Campbell
No comments

Every year in February, there is one cultural event that Americans look forward to with about three quarters as much as gusto as they do the Super Bowl. This Sunday night event is the annual Grammy awards, the pinnacle of American pop music – the night where musicians from every single genre come together to…

live music & album review: laura warshauer, the pink chariot mixtape

Christine Campbell
No comments

Sometime at the end of January, I decided to attend a Laura Warshauer show at Rockwood Music Hall, perhaps New York’s most famous venue for emerging/newly established musicians. I had been craving new music more than usual (I blame the hibernation that winter inevitably brings) and when I saw the show announcement, I knew I’d…

album review: big deal, lights out

Christine Campbell
No comments

The first time I read the email to review Big Deal’s new album Lights Out, I was slightly put off because of their name (ironic? Almost worse if it’s not), but I agreed to check them out after doing a quick Google search on the band name. I found out that Big Deal has been…

q&a: hannah vs. the many

Christine Campbell
One comment

Hannah vs. The Many is some of the most unique music I’ve heard in the past 6 months. The band’s sound somehow happily blends lyrical arrangements of some of your favorite musicals with hard-hitting rock n’ roll riffs that stay with you long after the album, All Our Heroes Drank Here, is over. Instead of…

album review: a casual end mile, devils and devotion

Christine Campbell
No comments

When I was asked to review Devils and Devotion, the recent album by A Casual End Mile (now known as Devotional), I didn’t know what to expect. I had read the November 2011 Lip interview so I felt I had an idea of lead singer Madelaine Lucas’s personality, but I hadn’t really checked out their music too…

q&a: deerhoof

Christine Campbell
7 comments

When Dunja first approached me to interview Deerhoof, I have to admit I was as much intimidated as I was excited. Deerhoof has been a band I’ve admired for quite some time; if you were to make a soundtrack of my life from ages 16-22 there would definitely be several Deerhoof songs in the mix,…

Fleet Foxes – Helplessness Blues I love Fleet Foxes forever. I have a long history of being a huge fan girl for Fleet Foxes, but Helplessness Blues wins my number one spot because its mastery can stand completely alone from my bias. I simply can’t get enough of the harmonious, meticulously arranged, intelligent musicianship, rollercoaster…

interview: NOVI

Christine Campbell
No comments

A little while ago, I got an email that introduced me to the wonderful, sassy pop music stylings of NOVI. Her lead single “Blackbirds” is one of the catchiest singles I’ve heard in a long time. After listening for a while, I happily found myself somewhere between the sassy melodic pop reminiscent of Natalie Imbruglia’s…

album review: claire london, like a machine

Christine Campbell
No comments

You last heard about Claire London from me in March 2011. It was one of my favorite artist interviews because there is something so special about this performer. Her unique brand of pop-rock quickly separates her from the rest of the pack of singer-songwriters in New York City. On her debut album Like A Machine,…

On Tuesday, 15 November 2011, I went to one of my favorite places in my neighborhood to sit down with Alexa Cabellon, the lead singer of Brooklyn’s own Little Anchor for an interview. We talked a lot about Little Anchor’s September 2011 studio release Yellow Lights, Alexa’s musical background, the fact that we live two…

Lead single “Dog Days Are Over” became an anthem for anyone on the brink of his or her life…

Christine Campbell
No comments

I think you guys know me well enough to know that I love The White Stripes. I was looking through my portfolio on Lip and realized that I’ve never explicitly said that, but my undying love for the Black Keys as well as female musicians makes this a logical assumption. So when Shane McIntyre and…
