Wow, That’s a Good Song: Peter Bradley Adams, “Longer I Run”
By Sarah on April 30, 2010
Peter Bradley Adams, formerly of eastmountainsouth, has been making beautiful folk-rock type music as a solo endeavor since 2005. There’s something very soothing about his voice; it’s one I could easily get lost in.

Concert Review: Robbie Fulks and Eliza Gilkyson, Hideout, 4/19
By Sarah on April 28, 2010
Robbie and Eliza traded songs back and forth, with each helping out with guitar and backing vocals on the other’s songs. The whole night had the feeling of being in someone’s living room, listening to people joke and tell stories and reminisce.

Wow, That’s a Good Song: Richard Walters, “Brittle Bones”
By Sarah on April 27, 2010
Yet another young British guy with a beautiful voice, who says on his MySpace that he “want[s] to go to America, buy a three piece suit, some boots and a trilby hat from Goodwill and tour Dairy Queens.” A+, sir, A+. I don’t know what’s going on over there, but keep it up.

This Week in Great Music: 4/26 – 5/2
By Sarah on April 26, 2010
I can safely say that there’s a show every night this week that I want to be at. I’m not going to make any predictions of where I’ll actually show up, though, because that’s just asking for me to spend all week sitting at the computer and playing Plants vs. Zombies.

Concert Review: The xx with Nosaj Thing, Lincoln Hall
By Sarah on April 24, 2010
The xx are a young band: singers Romy Madley Croft and Oliver Sim are just 20 years old, and they only have one full length album under their belts. But on stage, their performance is smooth, solid, and mature beyond their years, showing exactly why they’ve been generating a lot of buzz over the past year or so.

By Sarah on April 22, 2010
Dear Mr. Brosseau,
I don’t like watermelon, either. Let’s be friends.
