Treefort Music Festival 2013: Cold Weather and Hot Music

Boise isn’t one of those places where you hop out of bed and say “I think we should go to Boise this weekend!”  Actually, I don’t think it would have ever been a destination on my list, but then low and behold Treefort Music Festival was born. So many people talked up this fledgling festivalRead more…

Album Review: Vox Mod – SYN-ÆSTHETIC

While space may be the final frontier, the cosmos also appear to be the creative studio of electronic producer Scot Porter, a.k.a. Vox Mod. On the debut full-length, SYN-ÆSTHETIC, Vox Mod’s galactic production and otherworldly synths hover over beats launched from sci-fi sequencers transporting listeners on a sonic joyride. Joining the voyage is a diverse groupRead more…

Live Review: Jubilee, Artis the Spoonman @ The Triple Door 1/31

Tonight’s entertainment in the palatial, opulent, and downright smart and swanky Triple Door quietly begins when local legend Artis the Spoonman unassumingly strolls onto the candlelit venue’s dark stage and squats on his haunches, barefoot, and arranges his spoons in a cloth carrying case in front of him. He starts to chat with the audienceRead more…

Live Review: Mark de Clive-Lowe, Sy Smith, SunTzu Sound @ Nectar Lounge 1/20

On a strangely mild January Thursday, my friend Kyle and I are propping up the low lit Nectar Lounge bar having an animated discussion about how the giants of jazz used to play live. “John Coltrane would come on stage and inform the audience that this wasn’t going to be a regular show,” he says.Read more…

Live Review: Bonobo, Tokimonsta @ Showbox at the Market 11/30

You’d never guess how much fun it is to constantly repeat the “nobo” in Bonobo while you mentally beatbox along to it. Such was how I spent the majority of my Tuesday prior to Ninja Tune songsmith and production wizard Simon Green’s Seattle performance at Showbox at the Market that night. Orchestral swells fill theRead more…

Live Review: Mayer Hawthorne, Gordon Voidwell @ Neumos 11/7

I’ll tell you this much about Mayer Hawthorne and his 2010-update-of-1960s-Motown-soul shtick: he’s certainly done his homework. Not just content with delivering stone cold classic musical gems that Berry Gordy would be falling over himself to sign, tonight it’s clear that Mayer has a Mad Men-like attention to historical detail in recreating the golden eraRead 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: We Are Scientists, Black Whales, Rewards @ Neumos 7/28

“Let’s explore our feelings,” bassist Chris Cain sagely and deliberately intones into the mic as the three-piece high energy rock ‘n’ roll funsters We Are Scientists take to the stage and launch into ‘Nice Guys’ — the second single from their recently released fourth studio album, Barbara. Taking their name from the song “We AreRead more…
