  • We Are Nowhere and It's Now: Revisiting Omaha, Nebraska's Movers and Shakers

    We Are Nowhere and It's Now: Revisiting Omaha, Nebraska's Movers and Shakers

    by Alex Cull

    On the eve of 2005, Omaha, Nebraska's music scene found itself in a state of flux. Long a hotbed for blues, jazz and folk talent - and a popular stopping point on those genre's established touring circuits - it had, since the early-to-mid nineties, been fostering a nascent strand of contemporary indie rock typified by its country inflection, emotionally direct nature and rather amorphous approach to band membership.

    Verge Murder: The Musical Dérive of Hellfyre Club

    by Zach Moldof

    There is something happening in Los Angeles. Of course there are all kinds of music deals being made, and music careers being made, and doors being open and shut in the great big game of music business. But outside of the rigamarole that most of the nation recognizes as music-at-large there is a group of artists behaving peculiarly. [read more]

  • Under The Influence: Shackles' Gift by Zun Zun Egui

    Under The Influence: Shackles' Gift by Zun Zun Egui

    by The 405

    "Tradition and modernity collide, as the band question the nature of home and our (perhaps misguided) allegiances to it. Shackles' Gift was born in Mauritius, yet constructed in London, it's as indebted to the past as it is to the present and it's to the band's credit that they understand that completely." [read more]

    Low's The Great Destroyer: 10 Years On

    by Tom Clayton

    This month we celebrate the 10th birthday of what many fans now see as Low’s defining statement, The Great Destroyer. It’s rare that a single album signals a big shift in sound for any band, and it takes a pretty brave artist to turn their backs on a signature sound, especially one as distinctive as Low’s. Luckily, they are a band with seemingly endless reserves of courage. [read more]

  • Artists We Want New Albums From in 2015

    Artists We Want New Albums From in 2015

    by The 405

    So it is with this that we are saying please and thank you to a handful of artists whom we'd very much like to hear from. We've even written some words about how good the artist is and how insane it is that there is no new release from them on the horizon. With some, there is hope; with others, there is little chance.

  • The Essential Belle and Sebastian Playlist

    The Essential Belle and Sebastian Playlist

    by Chris Taylor

    Belle & Sebastian are almost like a comfort blanket covered in disco lights: reassuring and warm but also not afraid of letting their hair down every once in a while to celebrate the great things in life. Murdoch's lyrics paint wonderfully vivid scenes of outcasts, dreamers and those just generally unsure about life. [read more]

  • Verge Murder: The Vast Worlds of Keyboard Kid

    Verge Murder: The Vast Worlds of Keyboard Kid

    by Zach Moldof

    Whether you discovered Keyboard because he's been one of Lil B's go-to collaborators since the jump, you found his work via Thraxxhouse, or any of the other various means, eventually all of these facets of Keyboard Kid lead you to the same place: a holy experience of technology, art, and humanity.
