The month of February is over and we’re well on our way into 2018 now and as the temperatures warm up the new music is flowing. New stuff from Eels, to Chromeo, CHVRCHES, Caroline Rose, Courtney Barnett, Field Report and so much more. I’m so so stoked on this mixtape and I hope you like it as much as I do. As always, let us know what we’ve missed (if anything), and please do enjoy.

Welcome to 2018. Our first mixtape is a doozy. The way this mixtape went, it’s going to be the year of female fronted band. I’m so so stoked on this mixtape and I hope you like it as much as I do. As always, let us know what we’ve missed (if anything), and please do enjoy.

Photos | Joe Pug + Field Report @ Brighton Music Hall

Photos by Boston Concert Photography This past Thursday night, Joe Pug and Chris Porterfield of Field Report brought a little bit of late July to Brighton Music Hall. As part of the Newport Folk Presents series, the two acts—both of whom hit the stage at this summer’s 56th Newport Folk Festival—made themselves right at home in Allston. Porterfield, sans the rest of his musical companions, opened up the evening with a set of songs and a comforting wit that quickly brought those unfamiliar with the band’s material into the fold. Those of us who were fans of the music before…


2014 | Courtney’s 5 Favorite Albums of 2014

James Vincent McMorrow, Post Tropical Last winter, James Vincent McMorrow released his sophomore album, a beautiful collection of songs about light and dark, warmth and cold and the stagnancy that sticks in between. Compared to McMorrow’s first album, the sound is quite different. Early in the Morning, released in 2011, relied heavily on acoustic guitars. On Post Tropical we hear drums and synths that open tracks and gorgeous layers of harp and sweeping horn arrangements that carry the choruses through. But perhaps the greatest delight in Post Tropical is that it sounds the same and different with every listen. It’s really all we can…


2014 | Kyle’s Record Recommends Part 2

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. At this point in my life, these are all records I think you should drop $20 on and spin the vinyl like there is no tomorrow. I didn’t think it was proper to put these in any type of order although most people who I discuss music with will probably know what my number one is. Without further ado, here are my recommendations for records to buy that released in…


Video | Field Report – Home (Leave the Lights On)

[youtube][/youtube] [H]ome for Field Report and specifically Chris Porterfield, is back in Wisconsin, where this video takes its beautiful backdrop. It evokes Porterfield thinking about what he leaves behind and what he comes back to after leaving for and returning from touring. Wrestling with the fact that he’s on the road most of the year, and hoping everything he left behind will be there upon his return. It seems he imagines himself driving his F100 around the beautifully sparse midwest, catching time in the middle of nowhere, attending to his truck, visiting the great lakes and taking some time for…


New Music | Field Report – Home (Leave the Lights On)

[A]nother Field Report tune has found its way out there, and I’m totally in love. On “Home (Leave the Lights On)” Porterfield wraps beautiful writing into these really interesting package that’s instantly catchy and familiar, his voice raspy, warm and inviting; and there’s a subtle, electronic repeating beat that gives the song an almost whimsical feel to it, it’s one of those songs that is instantly delightful, and begs to be listened again and again. It’s really interesting to watch this band bend “folk” music, with electronic components right up next to pedal steel, it’s a pushing of the genre…


Best Records of 2012 | 25 – 21

25. Jack White – Blunderbuss – Jack White is back with his first solo record since “the breakup” and he’s back to true form in only the way that he can be.
