TJ Mayes - "When Love Comes Down"

’50s era rock ’n’ roll had been long overdue for a rebirth. Thankfully, the stockpile of capable luminaries has not been in short supply over the past few years.

Boare - "playdatshit"

The world is in the midst of an electronic music renaissance, and you find most of this boon of producers laying claim to the club-friendly, bass-dropping variety, holing up in the the free-flowing world of hip-hop beatmaking or pitching their tent on the out-there, boundary-pushing EDM camp.

Broncho - "Class Historian"

Broncho has never been hurting in the hook department. The success of the trio’s 2011 debut, Can’t Get Past the Lips, was predicated mostly on its ability to marry melodies with kinetic guitar riffs and anarchic energy. Yet we’ve heard nothing to the degree of pure pop catchiness on display in “Class Historian,” the new single from Broncho’s upcoming sophomore album, Just Enough Hip to Be Woman.

Manmade Objects - Monuments

No one wants to be forgotten; everyone wants some sort of legacy, a mark they leave behind as they exit this life for whatever lies beyond.

And for as long as there has been death, there have been monuments — whether austere or understated, abstract or concrete, prominent or tucked away in private — erected by the ones they loved to assure that remembrance, at least for a time.

Admirals - Amidst the Blue

Sometimes it helps to not be very good.

Some of the best albums and artists were born out of happy accidents owed to varying degrees of early suckage — the perfect note or chord for a song found by missing the one you are aiming for, failed mimicry of an idol bearing something entirely new and great instead.

Yo ho ho and a flagon of rum

English folk/party band Skinny Lister joins Dropkick Murphys for a rowdy St. Patrick’s Day tour of the Midwest.


Music

Devon Green
A few years ago, Skinny Lister was enjoying mild success in its home country before being discovered in a hotel parking lot at SXSW. Already the darlings of the festival set in Europe, the band was discovered by the Dropkick Murphys’ manager, who witnessed the rowdy 5-piece in what lead singer Lorna Thomas described as “the world’s only mandolin solo in a glass lift.” The band was notorious for setting up anywhere and everywhere and playing to anyone who would listen. This approach, especially at SXSW, proved to be an effective one.
