Photos + Review | Son Little + Christopher Paul Stelling @ City Winery

Friday, March 1st was a pretty special night for the Music Savage gang as we got to spend an evening with two Newport Folk Festival alumni in downtown Boston. Two of our favorite Anti- Records artists shared some shows together for a few days and we were lucky enough on this chilly night to have them stop in our area to warm our hearts and souls with brilliant music for a few hours at City Winery. First up this evening was Asheville, North Carolina-based musician Christopher Paul Stelling whose fourth studio album (the second for ANTI-), Itinerant Arias, was released…

Fair warning however, once you have attended you will find yourself comparing a Christopher Paul Stelling concert to all…

2015 | Steve’s Top Albums of the Year

Welp… I don’t think it would be at all possible to put this off any longer than I have. The yearly tradition of picking a favorite kid once again has me denying that I actually need to do it (they’re all special in their own way!) Someone much smarter than me once told me that limitations create value, and since time is also short, I’m going to adopt the style of the #50WordReview for each of the albums below. (For the record, they are in an order determined by the total number of track plays for all tracks on the…
