Tuesday Music News

From pop to funk and R&B, Prince is a musician of many genres. I have to say, this raw and amped up version of his hit “Let’s Go Crazy” fits him like a glove. He has four shows planned in two nights (April 18 and 19) at Shoebox and if this six minutes of instrumentalRead more...

Live Review: CocoRosie with Cibelle @ Showbox 6/25

The all-ages CocoRosie show in Seattle happened on Friday night at Showbox at the Market and they brought Brazilian-born-London-based singer Cibelle to be the opener.

Album Review: CocoRosie - Grey Oceans

People have been talking about the cover way before the album was released and the reactions were usually negative. But what’s so horrible about it anyway? It’s CocoRosie after all, they’ve been around for years and dressing up in unconventional ways / playing with the established perception of gender has always been one of theirRead more...
