City Music is an airplane descending over frozen lakes into Chicago. City Music is riding the Q Train out to Coney Island to smell the ocean and a morning in Philadelphia where greats cranes reconfigure the buildings like an endless puzzle. City Music is a quiet afternoon moment on a bench in Baltimore, a highway in Seattle at night where the distant houses look like tiny flames and a bottle of red wine being drained on a bridge in Paris.…

A_sgeir.jpg

Born Ásgeir Trausti Einarsson in the diminutive hamlet of Laugarbakki, Icelandic singer/songwriter Ásgeir specializes in intimate, soulful songs that span indie electronic and atmospheric folk. An overnight success in his native Iceland, where the then 21-year-old released his 2012 debut album, Dýrð í Dauðaþögn, and quickly broke every regional record in the book (it's estimated that almost ten percent of the Icelandic population owns the album), Ásgeir's unique songs are made all the more idiosyncratic by the fact that his 72-year-old father, poet Einar Georg Einarsson,…

"I love the harmonies of the Shook Twins, the dreamlike songs that seem somehow permeated by the American Folk tradition, without actually being part of it. They make music that twines through your soul the way vines cover an abandoned shack in the woods." Neil Gaiman, New York Times Best-Selling Author

No matter the form, when it comes to art, there are a number of different tacks to take. Some artists continually push their work across new horizons. Neil Young, Leonardo Da Vinci, and Joni Mitchell come to mind, in that regard. Others Ñ Claude Monet, Jason Isbell, and Bonnie Raitt, among them Ñ stand a bit more still in order to continually refine the capturing of their vision. Singer/songwriter Peter Bradley Adams falls into the latter category of perfectionists chasing…

San-_Fermin.jpg

San Fermin's third studio album, 'Belong,' marks a shift in songwriting perspective for bandleader Ellis Ludwig-Leone. "In the past I'd usually write through characters from books or movies, as a way to try to distance myself from what I was writing about," says the Brooklyn-based artist. "As I've become more confident as a songwriter, I decided that I could drop some of the artifice and write something more direct." In bringing a more personal slant to his music, Ludwig-Leone found…

East Nashville-based musician Aaron Lee Tasjan has always considered himself a songwriter first and foremost, writing his own off-kilter folk-inflected songs since he picked up his first acoustic as a teen guitar prodigy. A lot of the stuff I did previously was never the main focal point, Tasjan explains. It's all just been pieces along the way.

You could mistake JD McPherson for a revivalist, given how few other contemporary artists are likely to assert, as he boldly does, that Keep a Knockin' by Little Richard is the best record ever made. It's so insanely visceral, you feel like it's going to explode your speakers. If I'm listening to that in the car, I find myself having to brake suddenly. I can listen to that and it makes me feel like I'm 20 feet tall. And the…

"It was going to be called Bones That Catch The Light," says Ben Ottewell of his third solo album, "but when I mentioned that to friends they either sniggered like Beavis and Butthead or thought it was too wordy." In the end this Chesterfield-born, Derbyshire-raised singer-songwriter opted for A Man Apart, a title with a pleasing ambiguity. "It could refer to my solo career away from Gomez, or to the crazy populist politics demagogues and thugs that seem to rule…

In America today, anyone can engage in spiritual surrender. Performing the rite is simple: one first gathers with their community in a room of mirrors (in peripheral vision these mirrors appear as windows). Next, the agendas, hopes, and grievances of each individual are written down and cast along pulsed radio frequencies to data centers. From here they are automatically sifted through a neural network of graphics processing units, and contributed to an artificial intelligence engine. The principal aim of the…

An album that is essentially an autobiographical account of personal mistakes, change, and growth, offers listeners a chance to reflect on their own experiences and connect with anotherÕs story.

Falling somewhere between rock, jazz and electronic mayhem we find space rock. This is a genre that is not readily defined, and is a state of mind as much as it could be considered a genre. This range of frequencies is where Papadosio tends to spend their time, sometimes dining in deep space, and other times snacking right on your front porch. Papadosio strives to create music that is strangely familiar, and calls all walks of humanity to bask in…

Blazing soul-blues rocker Tommy Castro's musical roots run deep. As he unleashes his high-energy music to fans all over the world, Castro is inspired by the sounds he absorbed while coming of age on the rough and tumble side of San Jose, California. During the late 1960s and early 1970s, this was Castro's home turf, his stomping ground. It was a place where the street-tough Mexican Americans and the counter-culture hippies came together to drink, smoke, laugh,party and listen to…
