The top eleven tracks from the Bandcamp heroes turned cosmic heroes (according to me).
A short concert update for a very early Monday morning. (Hopefully) a new tradition of friends and live tunes is starting this week!
They may not've made the Turntable Talk Top Eleven, but are definitely still worth your time.
The best and most essential acts to see at Lollapalooza this year (according to Turntable Talk).
A short update for this Wednesday afternoon. I was up at 7 this morning when the Lollapalooza lineup dropped, and I am ecstatic to see that four out of five of the bands/artists on my wishlist yesterday-Lorde, Muse, Arcade Fire and Car Seat Headrest- are on it! I won't reveal too much about how I … Continue reading Four Out of Five

To start is the band Con Brio, a seven-strong lineup of extremely talented musicianship. Brass solos, guitar solos and vocal improvisation … Continue reading Lolla in Brief: Day 2
