Alt-J | An Awesome Wave | Album Review

An Awesome Wave, the debut release by British quartet, ∆ (pronounced Alt-J) is instantly a highly prized band by fans and critics. Perhaps “instantly” isn’t the right word to describe An Awesome Wave. Alt-J was formed back in 2007.

Phish | Star Lake '98 | Review

Sometimes we don't realize just how good we have it these days.  High Definition video has given us unparalled clarity, especially when it comes to live concert recordings.  In recent years Phish have embraced current technology and have given fans not only super clean live web streams of their shows, but also crisp high-def DVD recordings such as recent releases Alpine Valley 2010 and Live at Utica.

Whiskey Tango | Groggy Mountain Mornings | New Music Review

Honing their chops each Tuesday evening for a full year at the famed Denver jamband venue Quixote's, Denver based quintet Whiskey Tango became known as a "must-see live" type of band.  Much of the group's show is based around live improvisation, and attempting to convey this energy and passion to an album has proved troublesome for many bands tagged with this phrase; however, the

Bill Staines Soars in New Album, 'Beneath Some Lucky Star'

The only time I ever saw Bill Staines live was several years ago in East Grand Forks, MN. I was eager for him to sing his (for me) signature song, “Roseville Fair.” It was a song my husband at the time had made into his own, creating a tender arrangement of this most romantic song of lasting love. I had never heard the original recording.

Digging Deeper: Rusted Root's Devotion to the Light with the Music of The Movement

Perhaps at the most simple level musicians view it as their job to deliver the music their fans love them for and to put on a good, entertaining live performance. Beyond that however, making and performing music is about much more. For world jam rockers Rusted Root, this means a new devotion to consciousness, focus, and discovering the vibe and light of being for both themselves and their community of fans.
