Catching Up With Noelle Scaggs From Fitz & the Tantrums

There's no shortage of band's seeking inspiration in the stacks of vinyl records released by Motown and Stax. Retro will always have a certain charm to it but the best bands use that inspiration to create a new sound. Fitz & the Tantrums have proven over two records that the music they love can be taken in fresh new…See More

CD Review - Piranha Brothers "The Blinding Speed Of Trust"

Entering their fourth decade as a working band, Piranha Brothers are not going to suddenly sell a million records and headline SXSW in Austin. False starts and broken promises litter their career like any band that has tried to navigate the tumultuous waters of the music industry. There were two albums, released on MCA's imprint in Japan and probably harder to find than Robert Johnson's skeleton. Leaving behind their Chicago roots in 1992, the band took up residency in Hawaii and have spent the…See More

REVIEW: Cowboy Junkies - The Wilderness

Cowboy Junkies - The Wilderness Latent RecordingsOn The Wilderness, Cowboy Junkies bring their four-album Nomad Series to a stunning end with one of their finest records to date. The band has always been at their best when the music and songwriting dance together like two lost souls clinging to a shadow of hope. Lay It Down (1996) and At The End of Paths Taken (2007) are two Cowboy Junkies albums that strike that perfect balance. The Wilderness delivers an equally powerful experience with a…See More

"That's an intriguing review - I was a big fan until Pale Sun which was a long time ago. After reading this I'm going to give them another listen - I'll let you know the results."

Cowboy Junkies - Sing In My Meadow (Review)

When R.E.M. called it quits, the band talked about walking away having maintained their artistic integrity throughout a 30-year career. As Cowboy Junkies pass the quarter century mark, the Toronto band must rest well at night. The band’s consistent work flies under the radar more times than not and the band sounds content with keeping it that way. With volume three of the band’s ambitious four-album Nomad Series, Cowboy Junkies bring their touring unit into the studio and capture the road-worn…See More

Cowboy Junkies - Demons

Cowboy JunkiesDemonsLatent Recordings The Cowboy Junkies have been a consistently perplexing source of music for over two decades. From album to album, the music finds its breath in the shadows of rock, folk, blues, post-punk, alt-country, and pop. It’s an endlessly interesting catalog that explores new textures and themes while somehow always sounding like the same band that cut a low-fidelity collection of blues covers in their garage in 1986. Last year, the band released Renmin Park, volume…See More

Damngivers commented on Jason Lent's blog post 'Live Review: Cyndi Lauper Sings The Blues'
"I'm glad for her. But one thing I remembered even from those early days was her voice. She's got a full octave range (or had) and she began in a rock-a-billy band, if I'm remembering correctly. I have the lucky fortune to do work with…"

"Cyndi can sing anything, (since her debut, "She's So Unusual", she's put out jazz, punk, disco, and...well, you name it, she's done it...I think something like 20ish or more records in all...) I don't think she was…"

"Not too surprised. Forced to listen to her pop albums by a friend, there seemed to me to be more to Cyndi Lauper than expressed in her top-40 offerings."

Tom commented on Jason Lent's blog post 'Live Review: Cyndi Lauper Sings The Blues'
"My wife and I have seen her numerous times since 1993's Hat Full Of Stars. She has an incredible voice, and her live performances are always accentuated with crack musicians. The current blues songs are a great vehicle for her talent. It…"

"Wow, I had no idea. I'd written her off years ago for "Girl Just Wanna Have Fun". I almost didn't read this post only because it was about her. Glad I did. Thanks for an informative well written review!"

Live Review: Cyndi Lauper Sings The Blues

Cyndi LauperAugust 21, 2010House Of Blues, Las Vegas, NVThe last time I really thought about Cyndi Lauper, it was 1984 and I was an 11 year old trying to understand the sexual metaphors lacing the ‘She Bop’ video. Being a huge wrestling fan at the time, seeing Captain Lou Albano in the ‘Girls Just Want To Have Fun’ video gave Cyndi a special place in my new wave heart but I never owned a record of hers. My new wave tastes eventually moved in other directions and I lost track of Cyndi Lauper. At…See More

Standing At the Crossroads

Leaving Chicago on a Friday morning, I set out for a Saturday concert in Memphis, TN. As I approach Memphis, I keep the car running and head for the delta. Earlier this morning, I realized that a night in Clarksdale, MS was there for the taking. Following Highway 278 west, I approach Clarksdale as the blood-drenched host of a sun slides behind the horizon and darkness quickly envelopes the green fields riding both my hips. About ten minutes outside Clarksdale, I look at the odometer for the…See More

Cowboy Junkies, Houston, TX, June 15, 2010

To many casual music fans, Cowboy Junkies emerged in 1987 with an ethereal cover of the Velvet Underground’s ‘Sweet Jane’ and then dissipated into a haze of dorm room memories. Over a twenty-five year recording career, the band has flown under most music radars while releasing increasingly diverse and challenging albums. The latest, Renmin Park, is the most sophisticated album to date and the band introduced several of the new tracks to an audience willing to listen at the House of Blues, in…See More

Q&A With Mailani

Already a success in Hawai'i when she decided to become a solo artist, Mailani's self-titled debut album earned her the prestigious Female Vocalist Of the Year award in 2010, one of her three No Hoko Honohano awards to date. Her second album, Aina, moved closer to traditional Hawaiian roots music and this year's Manawa completes the journey and establishes her at the forefront of contemporary…
