There was a time in which I was totally oblivious to how popular a band was. Usually my naivety went along the lines of: “This band is awesome, everyone must love them!” Now I know that's not quite the case and, whenever I can, I try and spread the word of awesome, small time or local bands I’ve fallen in love with.  At last year’s SXSW, favorite bands I’d never heard of included Best Coast and Hunx and His Punx, who have both ...

This Monday, Neil Young took a couple moments from grooming his sideburns to induct his old friend Tom Waits into the Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame at the Historic Waldorf Astoria. Upon his induction, Waits had only this to say: "Thanks, everybody, this is very encouraging. Songs are really just interesting things to do with the air. I was fifteen when I snuck in to a club to see Lightning Hopkins. I wore an overcoat, put white-out in my hair, drew on a mustache and ... Read More
Before I went to the Wild Flag show at NYC's Radio City Musical Hall Wednesday night, I checked out the band's Facebook page. Because I "like" them. Not because I enjoy staring at pics of Carrie Brownstein every day or anything. A post from the band read: "Hope Radio City is ready for the rough and the raw." Rough. Raw. Just how I like it. My giddiness jacked up to the 10,000th power. Wild Flag's line-up is nothing short of astounding. Carrie Brownstein ... Read More
Full disclosure: prior to watching British band Esben and the Witch play at Manhattan's Mercury Lounge last Saturday, I hadn't listened to their entire full-length album, Violet Cries. (It released on Matador in February.) This is shameful for 2 reasons: 1. Goth is in my blood; My black, brooding blood. When Esben first released the single "Marching Song" in late 2010 I listened to it for two days straight. This obsessive cycle was only broken by Sisters of ... Read More

RYAT Releases Avant Gold

BY Janelle in Music

RYAT is a sonic blend of two parts. The first, being Christina McGeehan, the vocalist who could charm the pants off a guard at Buckingham Palace with her soothing vocals and manipulations of sound. The other, Tim Conley, plays part-time producer (and full-time boyfriend to McGeehan) as he carefully crafts plush soundscapes to compliment his lady’s soft lyrics. 2009’s aptly titled Street Noise Orkestra existed as just that, where common sounds meshed ...
