American dream-pop indie darling Youth Lagoon released his second full-length album, Wondrous Bughouse, on 5 March 2013. He and his backing band played an amazing, sold-out show in New York City the very next day, 6 March 2013, at Bowery Ballroom. When we bought tickets to this show, my friends and I were not aware of how important it…

As you are aware, I saw Ian Axel perform at NYC’s Bowery Ballroom in the first week of September. However, I had sent these interview questions prior to seeing his live show — sometimes, that’s just how it goes — so it was interesting to see how he answered these in the context of his…

On February 23, 2011, I went to Webster Hall to see Beach House and Papercuts play a sold out show to a crowd of adoring fans, myself included. I’m not sure when exactly Beach House exploded, probably when the song “Norway” became popular back in 2009 and helped usher in the chillwave movement that defined…

Funk. Most people don’t take the genre seriously. Even America’s most envelope-pushing family favorite television show Glee only explored funk once it had an established audience. And I get that, funk music is kind of dated. Maybe I’m forming this opinion from the pictures I’ve seen, but all I can imagine when I think of…

When Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds‘ debut album of the same name opens with “Untie My Shoelaces”, the listener is introduced to everything I like about the band: the depths of lead singer Arleigh Kincheloe’s sultry voice backed by a huge, bluesy, rock and reggae instrumental powerhouse. While the production of the debut album…

On Monday, September 27, 2010, I attended a “secret show” of sorts that John Legend and the Roots played to benefit their album Wake Up! in conjunction with New York City’s 2010 Ad Week. I got access to the tickets through my sister and the gigantic advertising agency at which she works. I was very…
