  • Play It Right: An Interview with Sylvan Esso

    They were backup singers for Feist. A remix project happened between them. Now, Sylvan Esso's debut album is a thing to behold.

    "I got a phone it beeps/Makes me know I'm not alone," sings Amelia Meath on Sylvan Esso's eponymous debut album. She could be singing about Nick Sanborn. After performing in Milwaukee on the same bill with separate acts -- Meath with her a cappella folk group Mountain Man (who also sang backup for Feist on tour); Sanborn as his solo electronic persona Made of Oak -- the two struck up a rapport that eventually led…

  • 'Begin Again' in theaters now (CeeLo & Mos Def included)

    by PSquared

    So, are you planning on heading out to the movies this weekend? Well, if you are like the majority of people out there who will be, then it's to see a bunch of giant Autobots and Decepticons who turn into cars and trucks and blow up shit all over the place. Yes, as you may have heard, Michael Bay's next playful orgy of destruction, Transformers:Age of Extinction, opens tomorrow. I've seen it and while at times fun, it's mindless stupidity can be somewhat tiring after two-and-a-half plus hours (the longest Transformers yet). Imagine the head blowing up scene in David Cronenberg's Scanners with less blood and lots more loud explosions over and over and over.....

  • Juana Molina supporting 'Wed 21' on US tour (dates, streams)

    Juana Molina at Prospect Park in 2008 (more by Chris La Putt)

    Molina has released two of the very very best records of the past decade in 2006's Son and 2008's Una Dia and they were records that insisted, if you let them in, that you'd develop an almost cult-ish obsession with her, dissatisfaction with near-enough everything else.

King of the hits. A primary work of colour. [The Quietus] Argentine singer/songwriter Juana Molina released her sixth full length album, Wed 21, via Crammed Discs last year which followed multiple releases on Domino, including its 2008 predecessor, Una Dia. The Spanish-language folktronica album gained much acclaim, including the Quietus review quoted above and a spot in NPR's top…
