Live Video: Stars

It’s hard to live up to a name like theirs, and harder still to shine brightly for over fifteen years, but Stars have not only lost none of their shimmering allure – they’ve somehow turned an amorphous Canadian collective, on par and in cahoots with Broken Social Scene, into a consistently productive and evolving group.Read more…

Live Video: Israel Nash

A “rain plan” is practically unknown in the Northwest. It rains here too frequently, but rarely fervently, for anyone to need that kind of contingency. Instead, for us rain plans are active ones, scenarios for doing and being. Maybe that’s why Israel Nash‘s 2014 album, Rain Plans, gripped us so firmly. His music seems toRead more…

Live Video: Steve Earle

It’s difficult to imagine something Steve Earle hasn’t done yet, but, believe it or not, until recently, the Texas-raised singer, songwriter, performer, actor, writer and teacher had yet to sing the blues. On his new LP, Earle pays overdue tribute to those who preceded and inspired him, and like the subject of the Robert JohnsonRead more…

Live Video: Lucinda Williams

For every country music star who seems to pop out of nowhere with a new mega-hit single, too many other talented artists struggle to reach even half the audiences they deserve. It’s a sad fact for musicians of all genres, but the ethics of “hard work for little pay” seem particularly true for country artists,Read more…
