ALBUM REVIEW: "Mulberry Soul"

ALBUM REVIEW: "Mulberry Soul"

 

CLASSICAL | The James Brothers

Toronto-born brothers flutist Chris James, and Aaron James, pianist and organist, have gone their separate but successful musical ways. Still they occasionally reunite for duo performances, which this summer takes the form of an Upstate New York tour.

KISS will get you coming and going

Rock 'n' roll is as much about attitude, shock value, and spectacle as it is about the music. I learned this at a young age.

Music Features

VARIOUS | Harmony Festival

The rise of "fest culture" in the world of underground music is a particularly divisive topic. While music festivals allow tons of kids to watch all of their favorite bands in one convenient location, it can be hard for local scenes to compete with the massive bills these fests boast.

Choice Concerts

METAL | Lord Dying

It's easy to get carried away with sludge metal. Worshippers at the altar of the riff often find themselves poised at one of two extremes: playing 20-plus minute feedback-laden dirges to half-catatonic audiences or essentially becoming a loud blues-rock band.

Choice Concerts

HONKY-TONK | Gal Holiday and the Honky Tonk Revue

Don't know about you, but the word "honky-tonk" has always meant "COUNTRY" in all caps, boots with roots, and a truly American sound routed geographically in the South for the most part. Exhibit A your honor; New Orleans' Gal Holiday and the Honky Tonk Revue.

PUNK ROCK | Sexy Teenagers

I've only seen Rochester-based band Sexy Teenagers once, so I felt it necessary to check for a few details in the Googlesphere. Definitely modify your search some and specify "Rochester band."

Choice Concerts

JAZZ | Mike Titlebaum's Music Because Music

Titles like "Schmeezlemop" and "The Sordid Tale of Glinkleglorp and Alisha" give you some idea of the unusual music journey offered by Mike Titlebaum's Music Because Music. Titlebaum, who is director of jazz studies at Ithaca College, earned his degrees at the Eastman School of Music.

Cowpunk isn't enough to explain Wyatt Coin

Now I'm not saying the members of Wyatt Coin are liars, it's just that they're not entirely what they claim to be ... they're much more. What comes across as an outlaw country-meets-hardcore aesthetic does so in spirit and not cliché.
