Live Review: JEFF The Brotherhood @ Bumbershoot 9/6

Monday 1.15pm Center Square Stage Nashville, Tennessee’s finest psychedelic garage rock double act JEFF (all caps no less!) The Brotherhood (they’re literally brothers) begin their Bumbershoot set with electronic pulses arpeggiating up and down in tone faster and faster and eventually settling into a melody and rhythm to which lead singer and guitarist Jake OrrallRead more...

Live Review: Fences @ Bumbershoot 9/5

Sunday 6.45pm EMP Sky Church The quote “Forever Bummed” on Fences’ MySpace page may give you some clue as to what to expect from local singer-songwriter Chris Mansfield and his musical leanings. His songs probably aren’t going to be used to sell candy or chocolate milk anytime soon; instead they’re jaded, melancholy, intensely personal affairs.Read more...

Live Review: Weezer @ Bumbershoot 9/5

Sure, Weezer may have had their fair share of detractors in recent years, citing the band’s output of late as being chart-chasing, unimaginative, no-brainer rock, but let’s be honest, Weezer songs were never exactly Shakespeare in the first place. There’s not a whole lot of difference between singing about hash pipes or living in BeverlyRead more...

Live Review: Delorean @ Bumbershoot 9/5

Sunday 7.30pm Broad Street Stage Delorean have been peddling their time-traveling (hey!) brand of live dancey synthy handclappy breakbeat since 2001. There was absolutely no reason to use the adjective ‘time-traveling’ in the previous sentence, I just wanted to get at least one Back To The Future reference out of the way early.

Live Review: Georgia Anne Muldrow @ Bumbershoot 9/5

Sunday 4pm Fisher Green Stage Possibly the coolest husband and wife team in hip hop since Abba, Georgia Anne Muldrow and partner MC/husband/producer Declaime aka Dudley Perkins deal in spiritually charged, experimental neo-soul-blip-hop that pairs the beat patterns of J Dilla and Flying Lotus with avant-garde raps and soaring, free-form vocals. From the moment theyRead more...

Bumbershoot Music Lounge: The Ravonettes

Super-cool Danish twosome The Raveonettes have been churning out delightfully psyched-out indie rock for the better part of the past decade. Singer Sune Rose Wagner’s hypnotically spaced-out voice sounds like it’s floating through the cosmos, and is complemented perfectly by the psychedelic twang of duo’s guitar lines. ┬áTheir latest album <i>In And Out of Control</i>,Read more...
