BuffaloTom-LetMeComeOver

Buffalo Tom @ Royale 9.9.17

Buffalo Tom were one of the most classicist bands to emerge from the ‘90s alternative explosion. Nothing about them was particularly fashionable or cutting-edge; they just wrote great, heartfelt songs. Twenty-five years after their third and most well-regarded album Let Me Come Over, the Boston band played that album in its entirety at the Royale, giving the devoted hometown crowd a performance full of vitality and spirit. Before asking us… continue reading

Green Day @ Xfinity Center 8.28.17

Listening to today’s pop music might lead one to believe that rock and roll is dead, but legendary punk rockers Green Day proved that it is alive and well at their most recent stop at the Xfinity Center on August 28th. Riding the release of 2016’s album Revolution Radio, the aptly named “Revolution Radio Summer Tour” managed to sell most , if not all, of the nearly 13,000 seats in… continue reading

Slothrust @ Great Scott 8.13.17

You know cool when you see it on stage. Some bands study cool, and achieve it in a way that feels artificial (see Monkeys, Arctic). Some bands, like Weezer, have made a career out of being uncool. And some, like Slothrust, can effortlessly make a mockery out of what a cool band “ought to be,”  and blow away a sold-out crowd in the process. Slothrust, the garage punk trio with… continue reading

Lana Del Rey – Lust for Life

Moldy | Stale | Edible | Fresh | Tasty!

With the release of Lust for Life nearly two years after her last, Lana del Rey promised her fifth studio album would propel her onto a completely different trajectory than her previous albums had.

Show Review: In the Valley Below @ Brighton Hall 8.22.17

In The Valley Below is a fringe alternative band with one big hit (so far), poised to break out as a household name. The Huffington Post named “Peaches” the No. 5 song of year in 2014, which finally peaked in 2016 at No. 18 on the Billboard Alternative Songs Chart. This July, the band released the EP Elephant with an obvious success in the track “Pink Chateau”, a worthy follow-up… continue reading

Album Review: Seth Glier – Birds

Moldy | Stale | Edible | Fresh | Tasty!

It’s hard to be derivative without also being generic. Furthermore, it’s hard to be original without also being derivative, as oxymoronic as that sounds. Inspiration is a cautious concept, and one that needs to be handled with care when crafting something as personal as an LP. I could list a plethora of artists that Massachusetts-born singer-songwriter Seth Glier likely takes inspiration from (and likely will in the coming paragraphs), but… continue reading
