Stroke of Genius: Claude VonStroke's ascension


Somewhere along the line, it seems dance music became a contest — to determine who can fist-pump the highest and glow-in-the-dark the brightest.

What's F'n Next? Caveman

Brooklyn, New York
Most people are probably sick to death of Brooklyn being a hipster's paradise where dinks with moustaches tatted on their fingers drive fixed-gear bikes to Williamsburg bars to pay $6.50 for a can of PBR.

What's F'n Next? Bad Books

Atlanta, Georgia
Andy Hull is doing just fine with the introspective and sometimes angst-tinged alt-rock of Manchester Orchestra, and Brooklyn-based Kevin Devine has built up a solid following with his own singer/songwriter thing.

The Year Million mature into the now

Cellars by Starlight
It's a chilly winter night in Allston, and I'm huddled around a table at Deep Ellum with the Year Million, discussing the band's just-released EP Broken Circuits .

Wild Belle push magical buttons

indie
Wild Belle's multi-ethnic allegiances — Afropop, reggae, and rocksteady — fuse into American indie-pop and classic rock. Results are, at varying times, tropical, tepid, and tempestuous.

Kingsley Flood declare new Battles

Cellars by Starlight
For a songwriter as simple and direct as Naseem Khuri, the band he's built around himself is surprisingly multi-faceted.

MUSIC_TheLumineers_list

The Lumineers aim for the rafters


Jeremiah Fraites isn't famous — at least not yet. The drummer of the Lumineers, the folk trio who experienced an outrageously fruitful 2012, is talking to me two days before appearing on the January 19 Saturday Night Live, but he doesn't sound convinced that his band have crossed the fame threshold.

MUSIC_Waxahatchee_list

Katie Crutchfield's travels


Waxahatchee's American Weekend was my favorite record of 2012, an 11-song collection of downcast acoustic-guitar ballads laced with raw, pointed poetry, home-recorded over a week at Katie Crutchfield's childhood home in Birmingham, Alabama.
