The Harmonizing Goth Soul Of Hestina

The art of harmonizing is no easy feat. Sisters can do it. Brothers too. But the ones who are simply friends with a symbiotic union that flow together? Well that’s just supernatural right there. And now we can add the… Continue Reading →

Brit Pop Gets Woke With She Drew The Gun

Louisa Roach fronts She Drew the Gun with high reserves of maturity and poise. I haven’t seen such a composed front woman in a while, and it’s definitely refreshing. Describing her style as “Northern Queer Trash”, Roach’s influences range from… Continue Reading →

Iceage/Black Lips: This Tour Might Not Suck

You know how it is with indie club gigs these days. You avoid the bar as if it held nine plagues (or in this case nine dollar Tecates). You take a quick glance at a merch table manned by someone… Continue Reading →

Paul McCartney: Egypt Station

Sir Paul seems to garner increasing popularity (once again) over recent years – A genuine acclaim for what he’s doing today, without any tongue-in-cheek irony.  And deservedly so.  Carrying himself with a sense of decorum, (but never too serious), he… Continue Reading →

Sweet Spirit: Bowl Cut Desperados

Grace Vonderkuhn: A Brash Outlier In A Shrugging Indie World

These days I’ve been bumping a lot of Grace Vonderkuhn. Grace comes swinging right out of the gate with a very real sense of self-confidence and a refreshingly brash attitude. I like a chick with attitude as long as she… Continue Reading →
