Eyelids-The Accidental Falls

Somehow an album that features production by R.E.M.’s Peter Buck and musicians who have played with The Decemberists, Guided By Voices, and Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks flew under my radar when it was released in 2020. Just found it in the last week or so because the band, Eyelids, is playing a show up in Evanston at SPACE opening for Split Single. A real … Continue reading Eyelids-The Accidental Falls

Crandelion-Don’t Mind The Merry Go Round

I’m a few weeks behind on Crandelion’s latest single, along with everything else in life, but I’m hoping my words of excitement will earn some forgiveness. In a way, I’m a bit glad that I waited on this one, because it is a summer song without a doubt.

A classically trained violinist, Li has a deep understanding of how music works, and he uses this knowledge to provoke emotions and engage minds. Li has … Continue reading Løv Li-Can’t Let You Go

Maddy-Dum Dum Dum

Since the beginning of 2022, I’ve covered a disproportionate amount of Danish music. This is for a couple of reasons: One, I’ve received a lot of good music from people who just happen to be in that area, and two, it’s something that not many people in the States are covering right now. I’ve always been more interested in sharing things that people may not … Continue reading Maddy-Dum Dum Dum
