Mixtape | December 2017

Press Play Our final month of the year has officially been closed. This has been a fantastic music year, and I’ve been having a lot of fun putting together these monthly mixes again. It’s great to chronicle a year based on what you’ve been listening to, and we’re so lucky these days to have enough new music each month to put together these. I hope you enjoy some new tunes over your holiday break, and please let me know what I might have missed this month.

2016 | Steve’s Top Albums of the Year

It would be no exaggeration to say that this was a stormy year that was challenging for a lot of people on a lot of different levels. When these kinds of times are upon us, music is consistently there to help lift us, unite us, rally us and carry us through. 2016 certainly proved that to be true for me (yet again.) From the first week of January to the waning moments of the December, the albums on this list—along with probably a hundred others—gave me something to continually look forward to. I hope they did the same for you,…

Photos + Review | Whitney + Hoops @ Great Scott

If you were lucky enough to be at one of the two sold-out Whitney shows at Great Scott on Sunday, October 9th you witnessed a band in the throes of a breakthrough year, currently on a breakout tour in support of one of my favorite albums of the year, Light Upon The Lake, and having one hell of a good time. The capacity crowd was expecting something great and the Chicago boys did not disappoint. Max Kakacek and Julien Ehrlich are no strangers to the music landscape (both were in the fantastic band Smith Westerns and Ehrlich played drums for Unknown Mortal Orchestra)…

New Music | Whitney – No Matter Where We Go

The beauty of a short song is they are usually packed in with a really tight hook. That’s definitely the case with Whitney’s newest single, “No Matter Where We Go,” a near insatiably repeatable song that is the perfect sound for the incoming summer months. This song is all about riding in a car with the windows down, in fact that statement is nearly eponymous. The guitar twirls around like an Duane Allman lick, while Julien Ehrlich’s vocal falsetto leads the repeated hook that’s got instant likability. Their debut, Light Upon the Lake, is due in June 3 on Secretly…
