2014 | Steve’s Top Albums of the Year + Stuff

The practice of ranking the year’s albums is certainly one that I approach with some hesitation. Like Kyle, I was tempted to not even try to rank them. I mean, ask me what the best album of the year is and — depending on my mood and the day’s events — I’ll likely give you a different answer each time. However, the geek in me wants to give things some sort of order, so I’m going to resort to statistics and order them by total number of plays for all songs on the album, on all of my devices. Sound…

2014 | Kyle’s Record Recommends Day 1

It’s the end of the year and it’s time to wrap up everything we loved, and this year I’d like to make this a buyers recommendation for records this year.

Understandably, he’s busy being a session guitarist for amazing talents from all over, and didn’t tour exclusively for his debut album, we were so goddamn…

Review + Photos | Fiona Apple + Blake Mills @ The Colonial Theater (BOS)

Photos by Boston Concert Photography [O]n a cold evening in fall in Boston, as the lights from the Fenway Park lit up for the World Series, the real show was going on on the other side of the city as an evening with Fiona Apple & Blake Mills warmed the crowd’s spirits. This being my first time seeing Fiona Apple, I wasn’t all that familiar with the deeper side of her catalog, but I knew exactly what I’d be getting with Blake Mills. As with what had happened a few weeks back with Fiona & the crowd in Portland, there…
