What I’m listening to: Eternal Summers

Thursday, July 19, 2012, 12:05 PM
Phreq faves Eternal Summers mature/totally kill on sophomore record It was nearly two years ago that we first introduced you to Roanoke, VA’s Eternal Summers, the punk-y, reverb-loving duo whose debut record, Silver, contained some of the year’s best raw jamz. Since then, the band has... Read more

What I’m listening to: Weekend

Wednesday, December 1, 2010, 10:29 AM
I confess I’ve always had a soft spot for indie masters Slumberland Records—the lo-fi taste-makers who brought us The Lilys and Velocity Girl (back in the day), not to mention The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Crystal Stilts, and a slew of other bands I’ve written about here before... Read more

Interpol bring mood, intensity to the Tower

Friday, November 5, 2010, 12:50 PM
How strange it must be to be Interpol in 2010. It’s been 8 years since Turn on the Bright Lights—their critically-acclaimed debut album—was released, and they were dubbed pretty much the indie band of the early 2000’s: poster children for the new wave of angst-y, depressed... Read more

What I’m listening to: Eternal Summers

Wednesday, November 3, 2010, 10:23 AM
It figures that as the last strains of Indian Summer fade, and the weather grows freakishly cold (yesterday was the first day of Glove Season), I’d fall in love with a band called Eternal Summers, who maybe aren’t even as summery as, say, Local Natives—but still reel you in with spirited...

Bouncy bounce with The Futureheads

Thursday, June 3, 2010, 1:37 PM
\ There was an unusual energy last night at the First Unitarian Church, as UK’s The Futureheads took the stage. The crowd was small (the massive heat wave, it seems, was a deterrent for many)—but so enthusiastic, and the band—dripping sweat, but still smiling—fed off that energy... Read more

Hearing an "Echo," three decades in

Friday, April 23, 2010, 10:11 AM
The weather report for this Sunday says nothing but "rain." Time to pull out the long raincoat with the Joy Division pin. The rain is oddly apropos for the event of the day, a Keswick Theatre show with the legendary Echo and the Bunnymen. While radio listeners might know the name from their... Read more
