Frankie Cosmos // Next Thing

Tiny green buds and blades sprouting underneath thin veils of crisp white snow are a first sign of the transition to spring. Winter tends to linger, washing the skies with dreadful gray streaks and leaving traces of biting winds. All the while, there is a bright optimism that situates itself amongst it. In it’s transition… Read More

Andrew Bird // Are You Serious

A great effort by an established indie alt-folk artist, but unfortunately marred by one of his worst songs in years. Before the announcement of Are You Serious earlier this year, Andrew Bird fans were starting to worry he’d never release a proper follow-up to 2012’s excellent LP Break it Yourself. In the four years between… Read More

Julia Brown // An Abundance of Strawberries

I love lo-fi. There’s a certain warm, human charm to a song that sounds like it could have been recorded in a 17-year-old’s bedroom. Imperfections in the recording of a song can give it life and humanity, the way Monet’s imperfect brushstrokes infuse his energy into the reflections of a pond full of water lilies…. Read More

Album Review

David Bowie // Blackstar

David Bowie’s Blackstar is intricate but desolate, both optimistic and rife with the inevitability of mortality. Sonically, jazz and prog rock electronica prevail. With ample use of saxophone, an instrument he learned to play as a young teenager, Bowie returns to the musical beginnings of his youth. With this final album he also reminds us… Read More

UPCOMING CONCERTS: Winter 2016

As the icy grip of winter takes hold of Middlebury and the rest of Northern New England over the next three months, you’re probably going to need an escape that doesn’t involve the outdoors. What better way to beat the winter blues than to see some live music in and around the great Green Mountain state? We’ve compiled a list… Read More
