A few days before kicking off a North American tour in support of their fifth album Tales of a Grass Widow with a sold-out show at New York City’s Webster Hall, I sat down with CocoRosie’s Bianca Casady. Ethereal, whimsical, haunting, and sometimes uncomfortable, there is no end to the adjectives used to describe the band’s particular brand of music. Sometimes classified as freak-folk, sisters Sierra and Bianca incorporate everything from harps to hip hop beats underneath Bianca’s trademark youthful timbre and Sierra’s floating soprano. Read More

Angel’s rap is still on point, but her fuzzed-out hook, layered over an alternately shimmery and spazzy beat, is the gorgeous centerpiece that holds the track together. Read More

With more than 30 acts lined up for this year’s Tinderbox Music Festival, it was possible to rotate between the three stages of Webster Hall from noon to well past midnight and never go a minute without a new act taking the stage.
Since I don’t have superhuman stamina, I made my way to the Main Stage at 7 pm to see Computer Magic, a.k.a. Danielle “Danz” Johnson, bleep-bloop through her electronic set. Danz performed for an intimate audience, who sat pow-wow style on the floor. Read More

The temperatures have dropped to damn-near freezing and it is getting dark out at an ungodly hour, but that doesn’t mean Northeasterners have to kiss music festivals goodbye. Cue the Tinderbox Music Festival: in its third year running, this 100 percent lady-fronted, New York-based fest stands and delivers right at the start of the chilly months, before winter sets in for good.
The annual event, which will be hosted November 11th at Webster Hall, showcases a lineup of female artists from many genres and degrees of fame. Read More
