November 22nd, 2014 · Comments Off on LIVE: J Mascis Strips Down for NPR

Even though his de facto method of transmission with Dinosaur Jr. is at ear-splitting volume, J Mascis proves his chops are not merely a byproduct of noise with an acoustic performance for NPR. Mascis runs through a medley of songs off his latest solo record for Sub Pop, the unsurprisingly solid Tied to a Star, […]

STREAM: St. Vincent’s Complete Live Set at Pitchfork Music Festival

November 22nd, 2014 · Comments Off on STREAM: St. Vincent’s Complete Live Set at Pitchfork Music Festival

St. Vincent’s self-titled fourth record is without a doubt in my top ten for the year.

Marnie Stern will make you swoon

March 15th, 2009 · Comments Off on Marnie Stern will make you swoon

Saw Marnie Stern live Friday night in Charlotte, NC at this dive bar called Snug Harbour. Stern was far less imposing than I had assumed. For some reason the artwork for her sophomore LP on Kill Rock Stars, This Is It…, makes her seem lanky and tall. In person, she’s a tiny little thing, but, […]

January 23rd, 2009 · 1 Comment
