Classical review: RPO's 2018-19 season opener

Classical review: RPO's 2018-19 season opener

Music Director Ward Stare kick-started the 2018-19 Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra season last night, with music by three very familiar composers. But when the program includes a powerhouse soloist, and the musicians acquit themselves so well, that familiarity is very satisfying.

Album review: 'If You Only Knew'

The boys and girls in Rochester's indie-pop darling The Demos have taken their incredible grasp of songwriting out of its comfy place and blown it up and way out."If You Only Knew," the band's brand-new EP, is epic. It isn't out of place, but rather out of time.

Album review: 'Coyote'

The Capitals have been making music since 2011, but the band has largely flown under the radar here in the Western New York music scene. That may change with the recent release of its fourth EP, "Coyote," which blends classic elements of rock with pop textures, singer-songwriter Americana, blues, and psychedelia.

Album review: 'Snapshot: Chaos'

MdotCoop started his passion for hip-hop at the ripe age of 10 with a tape recorder and a cassette, eager to see where these new sounds would take him. Fast forward years later and the Rochester emcee has released multiple projects under the MdotCoop name.

Album review: 'Subterranean Sweatpants'

With "Subterranean Sweatpants," Moses Rockwell keeps his trend of coming out with at least one project a year. I'm honestly surprised that he can keep up the pace considering just how much substance he brings to the table.

Fresh Cut: ‘Negative Space’ by Ben Morey

Eschewing the pop panache of his magnum opus, “Mt. Doom,” Ben Morey opts for a scaled-down and somber sound on his new singe, "Negative Space"
