Recommend New Album: Bart Davenport — Physical World

You can take classes in composition, you can take classes in string arrangement, in writing charts — you can even take DJ classes, but you can’t take classes to acquire natural talent. Bart Davenport is trained, but I don’t mean he went to music school. He’s a songwriter. And like clock makers, the only way to […]

AJ Davila, lead singer of San Juan, Puerto Rico’s garage-punk party animals Davila 666, has wasted no time in assembling a new side project/album Terror Amor which is quickly proving to be just as rockin’, if not more than Davila 666 who have slid into hiatus […]

Recommended Album Review: Sun-Kil Moon — Benji

Sometimes, when in the process of listening to a Mark Kozelek album, you begin to think he would’ve been a great novelist. There might not be a songwriter out there today that is able to wax as elegantly as Kozelek about both the profound and the mundane, usually within just a few lines of each […]

The Record Company to Release “Feels So Good” EP with B-Sides on Vinyl

Photo by Ken Hughes There’s blues bands that are too deep for you to understand, there’s blues bands that only belong in a beachside bro-bar where the only thing deep is the ocean, and then there’s blues bands that just get it right. L.A.’s The Record Company roll out a solid punch of blues with […]

Introducing: Jess Williamson — gorgeous indie folk drenched in stirring tales of self-discovery

Austin native, Jess Williamson is a folk-rock singer/songwriter that is more folk than rock, not usually following the standard “verse-chorus-verse” structure. Upon hearing the first words from the lead track and opening single “Blood Song” from her newly released debut full-length Native State, I immediately thought of Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter Meiko in terms of Williamson’s […]
