Q&A with Dango Rose of Elephant Revival; Playing Eddie’s Attic May 2nd

[ 0 ] April 29, 2014 |

By Al Kaufman  Elephant Revival is not your typical band. While a typical band may revolve around the music it creates, Elephant Revival revolves around the music that is in nature and the cosmos.

Interview with Paul Deakin of the Mavericks

[ 0 ] April 21, 2014 |

By Al Kaufman Back in 1989, when country music stars were pseudo-cowboys wearing oversized hats, a band formed in Miami, fronted by a Cuban-American who sounded like Roy Orbison’s long lost kid brother.

The Road To Counterpoint: Interview with Big Gigantic

[ 0 ] April 14, 2014 |

The best way I know how to begin introducing Big Gigantic starts with a little personal story. I dragged my younger sister, a hater of all things EDM/etc., to a Big G show, and as soon as Dom picked up the sax, the girl was hooked. The only people who don’t like Big G, simply […]

Interview with Gringo Star

[ 0 ] April 3, 2014 |

Gringo Star are insouciant explorers, tossing the paddles overboard and drifting on the currents of their lackadaisical curiosity across a rippling sonic ocean, out to the far edges of rock & roll. Shot pulsing from a vintage Leslie speaker, their guitars, keys and vocals pirouette across the astral plane, the psychoactive ingredients of their echo-slathered, […]
