Live Review: Efterklang, Field Music, Buke and Gass at The EARL, September 27

By Giles Turnbull Seeing Buke and Gass live made me re-evaluate many things. If you’ve read my review of Riposte, their debut album, you’ll recall that the Buke is a modified six-string baritone ukulele and the Gass is a hybrind, part guitar, part bass, and in addition to these creations, Arone Dyer and Aron Sanchez […]

Live Review: Mastodon, Deftones, Alice In Chains at Aaron’s Amphitheatre at Lakewood, September 28

Review by Ellen Eldridge; photo by Robb Cohen The tour title, BlackDiamondSkye, creatively showed the unity between bands Mastodon, Deftones, and Alice In Chains, but, at the same time, the bands’ combination of words from the latest album releases lead to the realization that had they stuck with the first word from each release the […]

CD Review: Girl in a Coma — Adventures in Coverland; Playing The Masquerade, September 29

Girl in a Coma Adventures in Coverland Blackheart Records By Al Kaufman Girl in a Coma are cooler than you. Deal with it.

One less great thing is that the venue can be all-seated, which raised a minor complaint from […]

Q&A with The Lonely Forest; Playing The Drunken Unicorn with Margot & the Nuclear So and So’s, October 9

By Alec Wooden It’s one thing for a band to get picked up by a label.  It’s quite another, however, to be that label’s first band. The Lonely Forest, an indie-rock quartet from Anacortes, Wash., has that distinct honor when picked up by Trans, the new imprint label headed by Death Cab For Cutie guitarist […]

CD Review: Rachael Sage — Delancey St.; Playing Eddie’s Attic October 10

Rachael Sage Delancey St. MPress Records By Al Kaufman Rachael Sage is a pop goddess. Equal parts chutzpah and glamour, her songs are glittery and shiny, but carry enough weight that they never never fly away. She’s constantly in fishnets of some sort, but she’s smart enough to start up and maintain her own record company. […]
