He said, “I wanted to hip you to a new artist of ours by the name of Korey Dane. He’s a local kid and we haven’t announced anything yet, but his album will come out in October …

It’s hard to describe authenticity. It’s one of those ‘you know it when it comes around’ things.
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 …

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.

Jet Trash

Jet Trash took their name from a line in a Tom Waits song though they have very little in common with him sonically. The San Francisco quartet have arrived with a gleefully relentless rush of a song that should kick off every single one of your summer road trip mixes.
