Post image for Exitmusic at Milkboy Philadelphia

I first heard of the band Exitmusic when I was in Brooklyn for the Northside Festival a couple of weeks ago, and they blew me away with their expansive, breathtaking sound that sent chills down my spine. When I found out they were playing a show at Philadelphia’s Milkboy this week I was eager to see them again and sit down with the band for a quick interview.

Exitmusic consists of married couple Aleksa Palladino and Devon Church – and if Aleksa looks familiar to you, its probably from her role as Angela Darmody (the wife of Jimmy, Michael Pitt’s character) on Boardwalk Empire.  Read more »

Post image for Album of the Week: Beachwood Sparks “The Tarnished Gold”

Beachwood Sparks is one of those bands that seems like they belong in the sixties – sweet, swirling psychedelic rock with a country twinge that should be listened to on a sunny day spent barefoot in the park. Read more »

I am absolutely fond of this album. I actually just traveled back from Grand Targhee Music festival, and I am appauled that you did not feature it on your blog. Please consider looking world wide for these music outbursts, including Wyoming. This festival is full of bluegrass music, and great fashion senses- Personalities. Thanks!

Post image for Bruce Springsteen, The Exhibit: Born To Run

There are few artists as beloved and as synonymous with the concept of Americana as Bruce Springsteen.  I would bet that you could ask almost anyone, and they could tell you a memory that involves a Bruce Springsteen song. Read more »
