It’s hard to write a definitive biography of an artist with as many career and relationship arcs as Leonard Cohen has experienced in his 78 years on earth. But that’s exactly what celebrated music journalist Sylvie Simmons has done with I’m Your Man: The Life of Leonard Cohen.
Father John Misty is quite a character. And he is a character invented by Josh Tillman to hang his rock and roll persona on.

The first album of original music from Neil Young and Crazy Horse in almost a decade, including over 85 minutes of music. Psychedelic Pill pokes down pathways that have been hinted at before in this teaming, but never fully explored. New textures emerge in the music, new landscapes in the lyrics.

It’s not easy to craft the perfect pop song. The try and fail to find that familiar melody, that joyous hook, that great rock riff or that insightful lyrical passage is more common than the actual desired result. That’s why we tip our caps to artists like The Beatles, The Stones, Dylan and Hendrix. And while many attempt to follow the path already trodden, some bands opt for a less convenient approach.
To call the music of the David Wax Museum spirited is all at once the truth, but also a bit of an understatement. Since forming in 2009 this band, which at its core is the duo of David Wax and Suz Slezak, has maintained a fierce independent personality and relied on a grassroots approach to spreading their music. They’ve blossomed thanks to their passionate live shows and now their latest album, Knock Knock Get Up, is matching that excitement.

Formed in 2005, Titus Andronicus is a New Jersey based punk/indie rock band that recently released its well-acclaimed forth studio album Local Business (XL Recordings). Inspired by Shakespeare’s very first tragedy, Titus Andronicus, the band collectively decided to identify itself with this renowned literary classic. Though the band has experienced some instability with its members in the past, it currently consists of Patrick Stickles, Eric Harm, Julian Veronesi, Liam Betson, and Adam Reich.
