Sylvan Esso Plays Ryman

I first heard Sylvan Esso at the Vogue Theatre in Indianapolis in September of 2013. I remember it well. They were opening for Volcano Choir, the band I had traveled to Indy to see. When I got there, the duo, Amelia Meath and Nick Sanborn, were already on stage. On the right side stood a […]

Top Rap Albums of 2015: Review by Ian Sayres

Top Rap Albums of 2015: Review by Ian Sayres

G-Eazy, When It’s Dark Out Here’s the thing. 2015 was once again a year of change, from minimalistic and off-kilter, to layered, luxurious, and somber. The release of Eazy’s new album just felt redundant, forced, and even uninspired at times. When It’s Dark Out is a direct continuation of his freshman effort These Things Happen, […]

Patty Griffin Supports New Album with Tour Stop in Indy

I’ve been following Patty Griffin’s music since I first heard it in a small coffee shop in Toledo, Ohio in 1996.  Her first album, the beautifully rendered and completely stripped down acoustic Living With Ghosts, featured a collection of songs that were both moving and raw, highlighting Griffin’s unique voice and intimate songwriting skills. On September […]

Fermata Nowhere Starts its Seventh Year

Fermata Nowhere Starts its Seventh Year

“I would say that my rehearsal techniques fit somewhere between ‘1950s Texas high school football coach’ and ‘Marine drill sergeant passing a kidney stone,’” said choir director Timothy Pearson when asked about the intensity of Talawanda’s own pop a cappella group, Fermata Nowhere. The group got its start during the 2009-2010 school year when Pearson […]

Review: Chvrches’ “Every Open Eye”

  As a brief confession, this review was in work in progress for four days before the date of this publication. Normally, I can crank out a review within maybe a day, depending on how long it takes me to listen to the album a few times. Why did this one take so long, then? […]
