2015 | Ryan’s Favorite Albums of the Year

It’s that time of year again for those of us in the music blogosphere world…the list of favorite albums of the year! There were SO many great records in 2015 and, as always, I found it extremely hard to keep to my regular listing of the ten best. These albums listed below are simply highlights in a standout crowd of bands and musicians that really made ’15 stellar! They may be in order for the sake of the almighty list…but I love them all equally. I hope you enjoy. [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Eo84jDIMKI[/youtube] 10.

Photos + Review | Father John Misty @ The Paradise

Photos by Boston Concert Photography Tuesday night was rife with anticipation. It’d be a few years since we saw the sass factory that is Father John Misty, and we all here at Music Savage are particularly fond of his catalog of music, his stage dancing, and his banter. Settling in to a packed Paradise Rock Club, with the lights down low, and an unlit “No Photography,” neon sign adorning the background of the stage, I couldn’t help but feel some anxiety about what could happen on stage over the next few hours. As the lights came up, Misty started the…

Saturday at Newport Folk Festival in Photos

Jim James [S]aturday at the Folk Fest brought back the sunshine and another full day of incredible music. The day started early with the welcoming sounds from Mariachi Flor de Toloache. We then jumped into catching sets from RayLand Baxter, Jim James, Father John Misty, Sarah Jarosz, Shovels & Rope, The Low Anthem and the high energy of Trombone Shorty. The evening was capped off by Jay Sweet giving a warm welcoming return to The Avett Brothers. Check out day number two in photos from our photographer, Jamie Reiley, and let us know which show you most enjoyed.

Wishlist | Newport Folk Fest 2013 – Part One

[A]s we near the end of winter we’ll all be thinking about long hot summer days, and of course, Newport Folk Festival. It’s become the must go event of the summer for many of the music lovers in the northeast, selling out the last few years, and this year quickly selling out on early bird tickets and three day passes.  There are still tickets available, but they are being gobbled up pretty quickly, and will soon cease to exist. All of this has been done by the NFF team without any formal spending in marketing, and remarkably without actually posting a lineup.

That lack of a lineup leaves a lot of us putting our faith in those that create the festival, and well, we’d love to put our input in … because well, we’ve got this outlet and we’re always eager to spread the gospel of the bands we love. So we were thinking, of the bands we all love who would we like to see most at Newport this summer?

If you haven’t already gotten tickets, I’d suggest you do so now, before they sell out. >> Buy Tickets < <

2012 | Steve’s Top Albums of the Year

1. Father John Misty – Fear Fun [C]roce, Skynard, Nilsson, Fogerty and Morrison had a baby and named it Father John Misty. Right out of the gate this album rocketed to the top of my most listened to list. Hooked in by “Well You Can Do It Without Me”‘s Nilsson-like flavor and then drawn into the much deeper and more complicated workings of stunners such as “Funtimes in Babylon”, “Only Son of the Ladies Man”, and… fuck it, the whole album is fantastic. 2. The Lumineers – The Lumineers [I]t says a lot about the state of the musical union…

Live Review | Father John Misty and La Sera at Paradise Rock Club

Photos by Boston Concert Photography [L]ast Thursday the Music Savage gang converged on Paradise Rock Club to catch the mystical, dancing-machine otherwise known as Father John Misty, aka J. Tillman. To watch this performance and not shake it yourself is an exercise in futility, and a look around the club proved that nobody was resisting the urge to follow the lanky ringleader in all his spastic glory. The set began with “Fun Times in Babylon,” which is also how the album Fear Fun begins, and the crowd sang along with their hands in the air, as if being preached to…
