Video | Kate Tempest – Europe Is Lost

Kate Tempest’s sophomore album, Let Them Eat Chaos, was released on October 7th, 2016 and instantly became one of my favorites of the year. It is a collection of stories in song about the lives of seven people who all live on the same street and are all awake at 4:18 AM, each worried about their individual problems without knowing they are all connected simply by the strength it takes them to get through each crushing day. The lyrics of the album speak of humanity at its most brutal and at the collective power of resistance against the brutality. The song that is the least hopeful…

“I don’t have anything prepared, but I’m here…” Purdy remarked as he looked over to a stool that held a bottle of water, a cup full of amber liquid and his notebook.

But I feel that there’s a clarification that needs to…

Mixtape | January 2017

I got out of the habit of collecting / curating and distributing mixtapes back when mp3’s became harder and harder to come by. Since then, I’ve been putting together yearly song dumps that are a great catch-all to keep up with all the new music that comes our way. As for 2017, I’ve set a goal of setting up a monthly playlist, and curating it. So if you’re looking for some new jams, lend an ear and give a listen to our January 2017 playlist, and we’ll reconvene in 28 days. Hope you enjoy.

Photos + Review | Joan Shelley + Ian Fitzgerald @ Columbus Theatre

Heading to the Columbus Theatre on January 25th, at the end of a really long day, I was looking forward to some relaxing, soul-warming music. I didn’t realize just how enchanting it would be. Appropriately introduced as the Pride of Providence by the Columbus sound engineer (Bryan Minto), Ian Fitzgerald opened with a set of mostly new tunes, off his recent album You Won’t Even Know I’m Gone. I had the pleasure of attending his record release show at this same venue in November, but experiencing Ian perform is sincerely, always a pleasure; one of which I have indulged many times in…
