With, in Pearl Charles fashion, a breezy twang to boot. I may be stepping on our resident twang expert Amber’s toes here but this album deserves

New Music Flavor – Dante Elephante “Mid-Century Modern Romance”

I am a bit partial to Ruben Zarate (the human behind Dante Elephante) since we share the same hometown, but don’t let my bias fool you, Mid-Century Modern Romance is a must listen no matter where you’re from.

Hello and welcome! Alright, here we are for the FINAL Tuesday Time Machine of 2020! Also, as the headline says– I’m trying to save my job here. Seriously, I’m on thin ice, folks… Two beef columns in as many weeks earlier in the month? A habit of including several decidedly non-indie tracks selections for Time

There was a huge pile of gold to listen to this past year. It seems that these trying times have motivated musical artists to unearth substance and soar into our desperate ears. There were already a plethora of good albums that came out in March, so you could only imagine how many more sad girl

the tea on twang *festivus edition*

The world of Americana and Roots music is vast and encompasses folk to blues, bluegrass to rock. What does Americana even mean? Is it country music? (a question I get a lot) Well sure, kind of, but not really if you listen to “country radio” (which is a very different sound nowadays)…but these are details

Last week he debuts with this single called MAZE a “mesmerizing tune easy to
