PREMIERE: Prinze George “Thunder In My Head”

A well-timed bath may have a greater impact on one's mood than exercise (or so says science). Prinze George tap into the same relaxing effect of pulling your head under warm water on their latest single, "Thunder In My Head," off their new EP Airborne. Over Kenny Grimm's cool production and Isabelle De Leon's liquid beats, vocalist Naomi Almquist [...]

LIVE REVIEW: Young Jesus, IAN SWEET @Park Church Co-Op

“There were certain things about my Christian upbringing that I liked. Others, not so much.” The irony that John Rossiter’s band is playing in a Lutheran church has not been lost on the Young Jesus frontman. Surely the crucifix presiding over the stage at Park Church Co-Op did not go unnoticed by Rossiter, who, with [...]

INTERVIEW: Mother Feather Discuss the Big Ideas and Bigger Sound on Constellation Baby

Forged in the flames of New York City's rock club scene, glam rock outfit Mother Feather developed a stand-out style with glittering costumes and a punk rock attitude from the get-go. Its lead vocalists, Ann Courtney and Elizabeth Carena, met in college, forming a tight-knit bond and eventually adding drummer Gunnar Olsen and bassist Seth Ondracek and [...]

INTERVIEW: Madeline Kenney Sets Boundaries and Explores New Sounds on Perfect Shapes

When I call Madeline Kenney, she’s almost home – driving back to Durham from a brief West Coast tour after a stop in Austin to drop off her band. On this return trip, she’ll cross the Continental Divide for the ninth time this year. Her first crossing, in January, was part of a move from [...]

LIVE REVIEW: Public Memory @ Mercury Lounge

I’ve never felt more old or useful than at last night’s Public Memory show. After getting startled by the opening clang of a crash cymbal (who could ever anticipate drums at a rock concert?) and bolting away from the monitors to the back of the room, it dawned on me that I’d forgotten to bring [...]

INTERVIEW: Bonnie Bloomgarden of Death Valley Girls Discusses the Band’s Dark Side

Around this time of year, it’s natural – or should I say supernatural? – to think about the mysteries of the unseen. Ghosts, spirits, forces – things we can feel but don’t know how to explain. While some of us like to dabble in the supernatural world for a few days out of the year, [...]

Though its [...]

LIVE REVIEW: Told Slant, Lily Konigsberg @ Park Church Co-op

As someone who’s spent little time in them, it is strange how familiar old churches smell. They smell like warm dust, wood, and maple syrup—like a childhood home you’ve never stepped foot in before. It’s a combination of aromas rarely found in the glass and concrete structures of New York City, but at Park Church [...]

LIVE REVIEW: The Beths, Godcaster @ Alphaville

If you wear a fringe-sleeved shirt onstage, you’re bound to get it tangled in your tuning knobs—but this is of little concern to Judson Kolk. The guitarist and lead singer of Philadelphia rock outfit Godcaster flits around so swiftly, his tassels don’t have time to snarl. Calling Godcaster a “rock” band feels a little inaccurate, [...]
