Live Video: Mirel Wagner

Mirel Wagner has an uncanny ability to conjure haunting atmospheres with little more than an acoustic guitar and her chilling, sparse vocals, but what’s even more striking is the narratives she chooses to craft with those talents.

Live Video: Girl Band at Iceland Airwaves

There’s nothing pretty about Girl Band. In fact, the Dublin-based four-piece play some of the most abrasive pop songs you’re likely to hear. But it hadn’t always been that way. Singer Dara Kiely and guitarist Alan Duggan had played together in more conventionally “indie” type bands before hitting upon, quite literally, their aggressive sound. WithRead more…

Live Video: Mariachi El Bronx

Mariachi and punk don’t seem like harmonious ingredients for palatable, let alone outstanding, music, but hardcore punk band The Bronx were creative (and brave) enough to try it out. The unprecedented hybrid punk/mariachi band they formed, named Mariachi El Bronx, had enough talent, appeal and nicely tailored charro outfits to release not one but three albums.
