Resurrection Fern – “Coffee”

By Will Oliver, October 3rd 2019 — with 1 comment

Resurrection Fern is a Nashville-based folk singer who has helped build her platform and audience using Twitch. She is preparing for the release of her brand new full-length album. She has recently shared her lovely new single “Coffee,” following the release of the previous album single “Savanna.”

“Coffee” has a familiar 90s-esque folk/pop quality to it that is a part of its warmth and charm. Her lovely vocals and guitar playing aren’t breaking the mold of the genre but they are genuinely performed and captured sharply with appropriate production that captures the quality of the track in a confident fashion that seems lost on a lot of songs of a similar ilk released on mainstream platforms these days.

[Review]: Cat Power at Webster Hall (September 22, 2019)

By Will Oliver, September 30th 2019

Words + Photos by Qbertplaya

Musicians Erik Paparozzi, Adeline Jason and Alianna Kalaba took their respective places on the stage in the dimly lit Grand Ballroom of Webster Hall and began playing their instruments. Eventually, the enigmatic singer Chan Marshall, perhaps better known by her stage name Cat Power, emerged from the shadows and joined them at center stage. Clad in a long black dress, she clutched a stick of burning incense that left a skinny trail of smoke as she made her way around the stage before she settled in at the mic stand and started singing.

There’s something magical about watching an artist create right in front of you eyes. Whether it’s the paint splashing on the canvas to match the sounds echoing around them, or vice versa, seeing the visions and stream of consciousness come to life before your eyes is a truly singular experience. And that’s the moment that Mike McCready and Kate Neckel are taking around the country in a handful of intimate shows of their “Infinite Color and Sound” mixed media project.

Rebounder – “Slow Angel”

By Will Oliver, September 21st 2019

Rebounder, the project on New York’s very own Dylan Chenfeld, has returned with his latest single, the super New York sounding and chugging rock anthem that is “Slow Angel.”

The track is anything but slow, but a very Strokes-esuqe life-affirming rocker that hits home with a big-time chorus that shows further progression for Dylan as a musician. He recorded all of the track in his bedroom (drums and all), and co-wrote it with his brother Noah.

Turn up the volume and enjoy a listen to “Slow Angel” below and find it on Spotify here.

Mitski has seen her career blossom ever since the release of her breakthrough 2014 album Bury Me at Makeout Creek, touring pretty much non-stop since then, all the way through to last years Be the Cowboy (released via Dead Oceans), an album that thrust her even further into the spotlight. But that’s a lot of touring (we saw her last December at Brooklyn Steel as well as at Governors Ball), so it’s understandable that she announced an indefinite hiatus, with the two final shows (for now) coming last weekend at Summerstage in Central Park. Both shows featured an opening set from Lucy Dacus, whose still touring in support of her 2018 album Historian (released via Matador Records).

Our photographer Brianna DiGioia was there to capture photos from the Night 2 performance on September 8th. Find photos and the setlists from both Mitski and Lucy Dacus’ performances posted in the gallery below.
