The Buku Music + Arts Project 2014, Day 1

March 22nd, 2014
Comments Off

The first thing that greeted me when picking up credentials for 2014’s incarnate of the Buku Music + Arts Project was perhaps the longest contest winner and guess pass line I’d ever come across. Two friends were at its mercy while some system or other rebooted, a testament to the sheer overload of interest this year. Upon entering the gates, getting my lay of the land, and heading to an overstuffed photo pit for Nas, my cell signal plummeted to the depths of practically unusable, and any hopes of truly instant Instagrams diminished. Buku had officially become a larger festival.

From the highest profile mega stars, to forward-thinking next generation innovators, this is why the eyes of the world are literally on Austin and this festival every year.

Sleigh Bells, Live at Terminal 5

November 30th, 2013
Comments Off

Sleigh Bells may have only played for an hour at New York’s Terminal 5, but they hit the stage hard and did not pause for a moment during those sixty minutes. Guitarist/producer Derek Miller, in all camo, and a black-clad Alexis Krauss on vocals ricocheted off each other and their bandmates, battling to give the best possible performance. On tour in support of their third album, Bitter Rivals, the Brooklyn band returned home for the final two nights of the US trek with an expanded line-up. Drummer Chris Maggio and guitarists Jason Boyer and Ryan Primack added depth to the duo’s already fierce sound. On their albums, Krauss’s vocals can get lost and are at times unintelligible, but live, she’s higher in the mix, balanced against the guitar assault. Krauss owned the stage to the delight and adoration of her young audience. To really hear Sleigh Bells, you have to hear them live. Until their next tour is announced, Bitter Rivals is streaming on their website. Read more…
