Live Review: Dirty Projectors, Atlas Sound @ The EARL, July 17

By Julia Reidy Dirty Projectors arrived late, during Atlas Sound’s set on The EARL’s welcoming stage.

CD Review: Megafaun – Gather, Form and Fly

Megafaun Gather, Form and Fly Hometapes By Julia Reidy Megafaun’s albums feel like a flocking of musical ideas rather than a linear expression of them.
