It’s not often that a singer-songwriter can translate their personal experiences into well-crafted songs, how Rachael Yamagata can do this allows us to say she has a way with words. Yamagata’s pop ballads bring us back to Bonnie Raitt or Carole King – some are laments of lost love, genuine “”troubadour of heartbreak” songs that >> Read More

With one of our favorite parties of every year coming up, we decided what better way to get amped than to hear some tunes and highlight the performers off of the upcoming line-up. Based out of Pennsylvania, the duo consisting of Lea Cho and Russ Waterhouse makes music that would be difficult to pinpoint into >> Read More

Dittmar_Sharon_Jones_23_550

It’s a triumphant story to say the least. Sharon Jones’ latest album, Give The People What They Want, was originally scheduled to release last summer; yet, after a shocking diagnosis of stage-two pancreatic cancer, Jones regretfully postponed all plans of recording or performing her new material. For fans, this put into the question what the >> Read More

My favorite thing about in-studio sessions is the rawness and intensity that engulfs the limited studio space. Like La Blogotheque Take-Away Shows, in-studio sessions are live, up and close, and sometimes, as personal as things can get. It’s no different from Josh Tillman, also known as Father John Misty. Goosebumps-induced performances, we can hardly imagine >> Read More

elliphant

Sweden, the place Lykke Li, The Knife, and Robyn can all call home. Opening up for Twin Shadow this May, Elliphant seems to not stem so far from the rest of the aforementioned more-than-recognizable names. Upon finding an article titled “Sweden’s Answer to Rihanna: Elliphant?,” I decided to hold an investigation. Elliphant is the stage >> Read More

calexico

There are plenty of terrible cover songs floating around the interweb, but it’s hard to complain about quality ones. Calexico has had their share of covers, a take on classics such as Joy Division’s “Love Will Tear Us Apart” or Love’s “Alone Again Or.” We’ve put together some of our favorites from the Tucson, Arizona-based >> Read More

If you scan quickly, you might miss the i in this duo’s name and call this band Purty Ring (as in ‘thaz a purty ring on yer finger’) Purity Ring matches Corin Roddick’s ghastly and lofty hip-hop rhythms with Megan James’ aloof, elf-like Canadian vocals. The band’s debut album Shrines  peaked at #2 this year on Billboard’s Top >> Read More
