Once again it has been one hell of a year! And once again I mean that in the absolute best and absolute worst of ways for 2017.

When all else fails at least we have music! These albums and EPs listed below are highlights in a standout crowd of bands and musicians that made it yet another great year for music lovers…

Photos & Review | Nikki Lane w/ Brent Cobb, Jonathan Tyler @ The Sinclair

On a chilly March night in Cambridge, Massachusetts a storm of good ol’ southern rock n’ roll, aptly named the “Stagecoach Spotlight Nikki Lane Highway Queen Tour,” blew into The Sinclair directly from the south bringing with it some of the most talented musicians that side of the Mason-Dixon line. The crowd was treated to three stellar acts, each bringing enough charm and style to light up the stage for a few hours and make us forget we were still in winter’s grasp. First up was Dallas, TX musician Jonathan Tyler. Armed with only a guitar he quickly got to work setting…

Mixtape | February 2017

February is always a fantastic month for new music. With SXSW right around the corner, it’s a huge driver for new music and this year was another great one. Now that February is over and we are two months down into this year, it’s time once again to get our monthly mixtape into your hands. We’re psyched to hear new songs from Blondie (yes that Blondie), Andrew Combs, Matt Vazquez, the Shins, Foxygen, Father John Misty and tons more. I’ve had a ton of fun putting this together, and hope you enjoy.

New Music / Video | Nikki Lane – Highway Queen

Nashville’s queen of outlaw country is back with a brand new video for the title-track off her upcoming album, Highway Queen, due out February 17th, 2017 via New West. This is Nikki Lane’s third album and it follows her critically acclaimed sophomore release, All Or Nothin’, which came out back in the spring of 2014. It is this writer’s opinion that Nikki helped pave the way for the resurgence of country music (and when I say country music I mean REAL COUNTRY MUSIC) that is currently finding a new audience in the indie rock landscape. Many of today’s wonderful musicians, like Sturgill and Margo, have taken…

Review + Photos | Nikki Lane, Clear Plastic Masks, & Frankie Lee @ Sinclair

If you were lucky enough to be at the Sinclair on Sunday November 1st you were treated to some of the finest boot stomping, country western sounds we New Englanders have come to appreciate these past few years. The show at the Sinclair did not disappoint as Nashville’s very own Nikki Lane rolled into town with her band of talented bandits to bring us an evening of bona fide Tennessee twang. Ms. Lane has been on a steady conquest of hearts and minds across the land for what seems like a quite a while, but in all actuality started with…

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…
