The Los Angeles-based Chris Pierce likes to keep himself busy. With the live music industry having been on pause for the previous 18 months, why wouldn’t he? He has long since established himself in his homeland and released his eighth album American Silence in February, is one half of War and Pierce (who incidentally have …

It’s strange how songs written in specific circumstances can take on new significance in different situations. Written after the loss of lead singer Valeska Steiner’s father, ‘Fit Back In’ was released in May as a teaser track from BOY‘s forthcoming third album and the long-awaited successor to 2015’s We Were Here. The task of fitting …

We premiered the lead single from New Jersey trio Cold Weather Company‘s new record toward the end of June, to head up the release of their Coalescence, Pt. 1 primer EP, and are equally pleased to premiere the next cut from it; and we mean ‘cut’ in the most literal sense.

In what is very welcome news for a Tuesday afternoon – or indeed, any other part of your week – the Oakland, CA-based Taylor Vick is back at it. Following the release of Free Company in 2019, she released a standalone single called ‘Wish’ in March of last year, with a high-profile SXSW slot lined …

You know we like a bit of Low around these parts. The Duluth, MN-based duo of Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker are on a hot streak at the moment, with their last two albums Ones & Sixes and Double Negative regarded as career highlights. Incidentally the pair worked with BJ Burton for those, and it’s …

If you know New Jersey workhorse Kevin Basko, then you know he doesn’t do things by halves. He’s spent much of the previous decade as the main creative force behind Rubber Band Gun, and put out a fully-fledged album pretty much fortnightly under this name in 2019.

He’s been part of a number of bands including the live setup for Tycho, but Billy Kim has only recently started to embark on a musical venture of his own.
