It’s as delicate and beautiful as it sounds like it would be and we were happy to host the radio premiere on MBE this week.

Yesterday, I heard that the LA-based artist had to cancel her upcoming show at Club Bahia due to a foot injury that needed surgery, so a preview of her forthcoming EP is certainly much needed good news!

Soo…this has been an intense week with a lot of blood, tears, needles, scalpels …

From his first release, Signs and Signifiers, Oklahoma native JD McPherson always seemed to have it. It’s as if he emerged from a late ’50s time capsule, but with an sonic quality that allows us to appreciate every nuance of his thoroughly seasoned band as well.
I’ve never seen …

Song Premiere: The Frightnrs Cover Etta James’ “I’d Rather Go Blind”

Posted June 25, 2015 by | 1 Comment | 4,449 views]

It’s strange to hear a reggae remix of one of the most painful love songs of all time, but somehow The Frightnrs totally make it work — and makes me want to slow dance with my head on someone’s shoulder…on a Caribbean beach…at midnight…with a full moon shining down on us.
No matter what you’ve been through in your life as far as love and …
