Premiere: Try Not To Get Caught in Paul Bergmann’s “MaL.A.ise”

Premiere: Jonny Kosmo’s New Single “Jessica Triangle” Promotes Community—See Him at Highland Park Ebell on Feb 27

Songwriting depends on hyperbole. The most common topic, love, is only spoken of at the extreme. We have the classic Dolly Parton line, “I will always love you,” which is the polar opposite of Cher’s sentiment: “Do you believe in life after love?” The feeling will either stay forever or kill you, according to these […]

Florence and the Machine at Outside Lands day one by Steven Ward
Florence + the Machine share new songs “Moderation” and “Haunted House”

The tour and swooning over High As Hope has yet to even begin to subside and Florence + the Machine have already released two new songs amidst the fervor with “Moderation” and “Haunted House.” A slight return to form with the cathedral-sized, baroque-meets-gothic sound of her first two albums, “Moderation” is the kind of thundering, concussively impassioned […]
