Song Picks of the Week

Are you all about BBQ right now, or do your bones scream partyyyyy?! Here’s an upbeat, fresh party song for you by The Hundred Days, our Song Pick of Monday. “Take Me Home Where I Belong” sings AURORA in “Runaway” and presumably she means with that the beautiful, but chilly[…]

3 Is A Band: Kink Ador

When looking through Nasville’s event calendar, who would be playing the last weekend in May, I at first didn’t see any band that would sound appealing. Granted, I would not have been opposed to some honest country music, yet I definitely wanted to see some local musicians, some who do not[…]

TORRES mesmerizes at Baby’s All Right

Living in New York City, going to a live show once if not twice a week, I am rarely star struck. While I am always looking forward to the concert I am going to attend and the musicians I’ll be seeing live, I do not anticipate a show as much as[…]

PHOTOS: Empires live at Pianos

Empires, who are currently touring together with Geographer, also made a stop in New York to perform songs from their most recent album Orphan, released in September 2014. When I heard about their show at Music Hall of Williamsburg (May 21st), I was about to buy tickets when I learned that they’d also play[…]

LIFE SOUNDTRACK: Icehouse – Primitive Man

I am undoubtedly firmly rooted in 80s music, mainly British 80s music, with stating U2, Tears for Fears or Depeche Mode as my favorite bands back then and today still. While I’ve seen those three live, each of them even several times at smaller and at bigger venues, like Olympiahalle in Munich[…]

New Album: Pale Honey – Pale Honey

Sometimes there’s an album that sounds familiar from the first second on – even if it’s a debut from newcomers like the Swedish duo Pale Honey. I just feel at home with Tuva Lodmark’s vocals, which I could listen to for hours, the sparse, melodic guitar lines and some subtle[…]

PHOTOS: Dead Leaf Echo live at Alphaville

Having seen Dead Leaf Echo not even two months ago at this year’s South By Southwest festival, playing old favorites but also some of their exciting new material, I was especially intrigued to see them at a Brooklyn venue, that I didn’t know yet. Last Friday, they played together with The Midnight Hollow, Tiers[…]
