Photos + Review | Newport Folk Presents: Colter Wall + Jade Bird @ The Sinclair

There’s a certain somber delight that comes with attending a performance by Colter Wall. While the subject of the songs you’re singing along to may range from being harassed by police, to infidelity and revenge homicide, to driving your motorcycle off a mountainside, there’s a comforting feeling that even in your loneliest hour, you’re never alone and there’s always another day ahead of you. Wall, an early-twenties Canadian Cowboy whose moody, husky baritone and classic songcraft have drawn the attention of music fans from Natuashish to Nashville, rolled into Cambridge this past Sunday to croon in front of a sold-out…

Few things can draw people together in the way that an off-the-chain musical performance can. And that, my friends, is precisely what Caroline Rose and her cohorts are delivering on a nightly basis: an insanely entertaining, diverse, high-energy eargasm of a show. Touring behind her latest release (and Music Savage #AOTY nominee,) LONER, Rose and her band of merry mischief makers (including a handless Elmo and Chelsea the faceless, animatronic cat) are ripping up sold out shows across this great land of ours. The sold out show at Great Scott was no exception. Working their way through almost the whole…

Song of the Week | Floco Torres – Hold Up

The new WMFO X Music Savage Show “Song of the Week” spotlight shines brightly on the incredible new single from Floco Torres titled, “Hold Up,” which will be on his new full-length album due out later this year. This is the second time we have focused on the Akron-based musician for good reason. Torres is a hard-working, hard-hitting musician who recently relocated to Akron, Ohio where he works for the local arts and culture magazine, The Devil Strip, while continuing to cement his place in hip-hop history. The single, “Hold Up,” is a lyrically masterful ass-whoopin’ on the two-faced people in the industry who offer…

Mixtape | March 2018

The month of March is over, and it’s time for the world to bloom a bit. This month was especially difficult to keep the total tracks to 40. Editing down, we’ve got great new stuff from Natalie Prass, to Erin Rae, Ry Cooder, Hiss Golden Messengerand so much more. I’m so so stoked on this mixtape and I hope you like it as much as I do. As always, let us know what we’ve missed (if anything), and please do enjoy.

Song of the Week | Aubrey Haddard – I Should Know Better

The new WFMO X Music Savage Show “Song of the Week” spotlight is focused on the impressive debut single, “I Should Know Better,” from local singer-songwriter Aubrey Haddard. The Boston-based musician is putting the finishing touches on her upcoming debut, full-length album, Blue Part, slated to be released this summer 2018. You may be saying to yourself “Hey I recognize her” and if you spend your time frequenting area venues like Atwood’s Tavern, Lizard Lounge, & Thunder Road (and you should be!) you most certainly do. On any given night she is either fronting Boston’s 8-piece soul/funk band The New…
