Recommended Saturday Show: Siren Fest at Coney Island

It’s that time of year again.  Get out there and sweat with the best of them at Siren.  Eat some hot dogs, walk on the boardwalk, ride the cyclone.  If you do decide to brave the crowds and the heat, make sure not miss these bands, my picks for this year: Dom, Wye Oak, Ponytail, […]

Recommended Wednesday Show: Wye Oak at Bowery Ballroom

I’ve written about Wye Oak a lot on this blog.  Most recently, I posted about their new album, The Knot.  It’s more excellent, noise-awash guitars, soul-deep vocals, and ridiculous one-handed drumming from this little Baltimore band that could.  Or can, rather.

Recommended Wednesday Show: A Dead Tie!!

I think this is the first time this has ever happened, but I’m at complete deadlock for Wednesday’s recommended show.  You’d honestly have a great time at either of these shows, and it’s a shame that they’re both on the same night.  You can catch Wye Oak and Sharon Van Etten at Mercury Lounge.  But […]

Really Cool Compilation: The Old Lonesome Sound

This amazing compilation just found its way into my inbox via Wye Oak’s mailing list.  I’ve been a HUGE fan of Wye Oak for a little over a year now, and I was so excited to hear their cover of “Black is the Color of My True Love’s Hair” on this compilation of old folk […]
