Spotlight Artist: Daniel Harris

Filed under Daily Music News, Spotlight Bands

I recently sat down with experimental Boston musician Daniel Harris to ask him about two of his exciting new projects, a 3-song EP (with a release date of early December, 2011), and a full-length album with his project 3dCosby (set to release in February 2012).  After laboring over his music for months (and in the case of his full-length, years), we rapped about his nuanced process of creation, discussed why a DIY artist’s work is never done, and jawed off about the political (and apolitical) message of it all.

Concert Crowd Manifesto

November 11, 2011 by  
Filed under Daily Music News, Industry Insider

Earlier this week I went to see a band I’ve been a long-time fan of, Blind Pilot. A folksy 6-piece, beyond standard instruments they feature an upright bass, trumpet, vibraphone, banjo, uke, dulcimer, and a large accordion-like box whose name eludes me and my google search terms.

I was not scheduled to review this show, and this cathartic creed is not designed to be a show recap. Though the show was great, when I left I was distracted by memories of some of the most obnoxious fellow concert-goers I’d ever encountered, instead of revelling in after-show glow. As someone who is constantly going to shows, I encounter tons of different crowds. I rarely find myself at the kinds of shows that involve circle pits or tossed underwear, but even then I understand that these shows have their time and place. I do, however, think that there are a few widely-accepted rules of non-punk/metal concert-going etiquette, so I’d like to compose my very own Crowd Manifesto. Read more

Spotlight Band: The Famous Winters

October 20, 2011 by  
Filed under Daily Music News, Spotlight Bands

Newcomers to the scene The Famous Winters, comprised of Sean Kennedy, Alex Garzone, and recently joined by Matt DeCosta, are a Providence-based minimalist trio with a dynamic sound.  Steady and eerie, Kennedy’s strained vocals and icy lyrics make their EP, Carnival Sky, a short but incredibly strong debut.  Kennedy and Garzone may not be partnered long, but their chemistry reads so powerfully in their music that when I saddled up to chat with them, I wasn’t surprised to find them echoing each others ideas, and sometimes even finishing each others’ sentences.
