Chelsea Wolfe + A Dead Forest Index

Sleep paralysis plagues singer/songwriter Chelsea Wolfe, and that strange intersection of the conscious and the unconscious has inadvertently manifested itself within her work.  With her fifth album, Abyss, she crafts a score to that realm she describes as the “hazy afterlife… an inverted thunderstorm… the dark backward… the abyss of time.”

Manic Productions + Premier Concerts: Frightened Rabbit + Caveman

Ever since Scott Hutchison started releasing music as Frightened Rabbit more than a decade ago, his emotionally honest and incisively worded lyrics have been among the project’s most beloved qualities. Over the course of five albums he has made poetry of his misery, and still somehow managed to make it sound anthemic -- like a triumphant rallying cry rather than a downer.

Manic Productions + WMRQ + Premier Concerts: Atlas Genius + Skylar Grey + The Young Wild

For brothers Keith and Michael Jeffery, home holds a certain kind of magic. The coastal Australian city where they grew up is more than the cradle of their youth – it was the soil for their dreams and the birthplace of their success. Australia was where they forged their breakout hit, ”Trojans,” which earned them a gold record and took Atlas Genius from studio project to critically acclaimed international act.

When asked to describe the band's music, the group members give a variety of responses. Says Emilio, “What Tower plays is Oakland soul music.” Former Tower saxophonist Lenny Pickett, current musical director for the Saturday Night Live band, says “TOP is the world's best rhythm and blues band.” In reality, TOP's horn-driven, in- your-face sound is all its own.

Gypsy Punks "Underdog World Strike" 10th Anniversary Tour: Gogol Bordello + Xylouris White

"I've come full circle and I'm comfortable being a total outsider," says Gogol Bordello's Eugene Hutz, explaining the philosophy behind the band's new album, Pura Vida Conspiracy. Like everything they've ever done, this outing is an uncategorizable blend of international influences, anchored by the gypsy rhythms Hutz grew up with in Ukraine. "Most people are looking for a box to put stuff in," he says. "I try to avoid it. The message of this record is the quest for self-knowledge beyond borders and nationalities. Every culture is a useful mask, but it is just a mask. To get to know your actual human self, you have to get behind all the masks. With all the time I've spent in Latin America, living and loving, I realized I'll never be Argentinean or Brazilian, just like I'll never be Ukrainian. If you have true human spirit, you can't fit into any genre, nationality or culture. To be a true citizen of the world, you can only be an ultimate outsider."
