The Get Togethers – Home As In Houston album review

Great music can help us through some truly trying times. Even in some of our bleakest moments, having such a pure emotional outlet to hold onto can act as a sort of beacon, illuminating a strength in ourselves we never knew existed. This acts inversely as well. As musicians create, they pull from within themselves to overcome immense existential trials. Such is the case for Nashville, Tennessee-based The Get Togethers’ debut record, Home As In Houston. Released on September 24th, the group marries indie rock and pop with a finely…

Deluxe – Daniel EP review

The music that they make seems to be doing what it can to battle the bare-bones web presence of French band Deluxe. Signed to French label Chinese Man Records, you will quickly fall in love with their fun sound. The mix of jazz, funk and hip-hop feels very current, and laced with samples, swingy melodies and catchy beats, you’ll find that their music is at once original and easy to listen to. The five-piece outfit just released a four song EP following their 2011 effort, “Polishing Peanuts,” and ahead of…

Bonnaroo 2013

For four days in the June heat, a farm in Manchester, Tennessee was transformed from wide open fields into the seventh largest city in Tennessee overnight for Bonnaroo Arts & Music Festival. Artists as diverse as Paul McCartney to Japandroids to Sea Wolf to Death Grips played sets across the various stages and tents that took up all of the 780 acres that the festival sprawls across and for the weekend all eyes in the music world were on Manchester. The music played was almost across the board, incredible. Paul…

Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival 2013 – Sunday June 16th, Day Four Preview bonnaroo

Hello and welcome to the final day of Bonnaroo 2013! You’ve survived the lion’s share, now there’s just one day left but today might just be the most exciting of all. If I had to summarize the day in one theme it would be hip hop. The first act I’ll be waking up to see is at 1:30 when Ghostface Killah’s vocal twin Action Bronson takes the stage in “The Other Tent”. Directly after him but on “What Stage” is every mother’s favorite rap game partnership Macklemore & Ryan Lewis…

Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival 2013 – Saturday June 15th, Day Three Preview

Welcome to Day Three! Friday was a blast but don’t expect it to stop quite yet! We still have all of today and tomorrow to see before we all start the long trek home and both days hold some really exciting acts. The shows start today at 12:15 to give all of us tired, huddled, yearning masses a chance to sleep in a little bit before  it’s back into full swing. The first show I plan on seeing is the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. When my family visited New Orleans…

Valentina – Wolves EP review

Wolves is the long-anticipated five-song EP by Valentina Pappalardo (who records simply as Valentina). It is the follow-up to her 2011 EP Weights, which started a buzz about the singer’s voice that only gained momentum while fans waited for her next release. From all outward appearances, Valentina has it all. The sexy Italian-English songstress is lithe and brooding, with thick dark hair, pale skin, and full lips. She looks…and on the surface sort of sounds…like she should be staring out from a David Lynch film. Some sort of muse to…

Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival 2013 – Thursday June 13th, Day One Preview

With every summer comes the promise of barbecues, sun tanning, swimming pools, and maybe most exciting of all, music festivals. For each and every fan, there is a festival no matter what your musical tastes from Electric Forest (primarily electronica music) to Rock The Bells (a multi city hip hop bonanza). One festival in particular offers an eclectic variety of acts in addition to a rabid almost cultish fan base that return again and again to rural Tennessee to experience Bonnaroo. This year’s ‘Roo runs from June 13th to June…

Phoenix – Bankrupt! album review

Phoenix, Phoenix has been relatively silent, not touring at all since their last show at Madison Square Garden. While I caught them recently at an extremely intimate Williamsburg club tune-up before playing Saturday Night Live, it wasn’t until recently that I had the chance to sit down and give the full album a listen. Opening with their lead single “Entertainment” shows Phoenix back in stride with an uptempo electronic pop nugget that sounds as if Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix grew up a bit in the four years since the last album….

Fall Out Boy Spring Tour Dates

So here’s my problem: I’m incredibly nostalgic. And by nostalgic, I mean that I’m still in love with a band that I loved when I was an immature 12 year-old with severe identity issues. The band grew, the fanbase shrunk, and they decided to take a break because they were sick of each other. Then I was in my dorm bed this past winter, and Fall Out Boy was like, “yeah, we might as well make a new album and get back together.” Thanks, boys. Patrick, Pete, Joe and Andy are…

The Shins Spring Tour Dates

The Shins are still riding the success of Point of Morrow and are out on tour for a little bit this month. MVRemix saw them last August and Osheaga, and we were rather impressed. Though I’m still wondering when James Mercer is gonna get around to that Broken Bells followup. So if you wanna hear that “Simple Song” song live, here’s your chance! MVRemix will be covering the Montreal date next week on the 23rd – and you can still buy your tickets for that show right here on evenko’s website!…
