The day is finally here, folks. It’s time to cry our eyes out to Julien Baker at Union Transfer.

The Suitcase Junket, a one-man band with found objects, releasing debut (listen)

Source: Brooklyn Vegan

The Suitcase Junket is the fitting name of Western Massachusetts musician Matt Lorenz. It’s the kind of thing where you imagine this guy must literally carry around a suitcase where he pulls out enough instruments for a four-piece band, Mary Poppins style. Maybe a little more impressive is the fact that he’s largely procured these instruments out of found and repurposed objects and has figured out how to play them all as a four-piece band by himself, further powered by his overtone throat singing…

Burlington-based singer-songwriter Caroline Rose headlines World Cafe Live tonight. The Burlington, VT singer-songwriter debuted last year with a lovely album called America Religious that Folkadelphia’s Fred Knittel compared in equal parts to Bob Dylan, Townes Van Zandt and Carole King. “It’s Americana and it’s not,” Knittel wrote, introducing Rose’s Folkadelphia session. “It’s rock-and-roll and it’s not, it’s rootsy and it’s not. Her music exists somewhere at the confluence of these styles, but also carries the ambiguities of living without of these genres.” Tickets and information on Rose’s show tonight can be found at the XPN ...

Calling all fans of live folk and acoustic music: this is your week(end)! Throughout the radio show, we’ll preview a few of the more notable concert choices you can make as we close the book on February. You’ll hear from roots-rocker Caroline Rose (playing World Cafe Live on Thu. 2/27), raucous electric country from The Whiskey Gentry (playing Milkboy Philly on Fri. 2/28), and indie folk star Sera Cahoone (supporting Band of Horses at the Merriam Theater on Sat. 3/1). While we aren’t playing Mark Fosson or Nathaniel Earl Bowles, we also recommend their evening of American ...

St Paul and the Broken BonesHailing from Birmingham, Alabama, St. Paul & the Broken Bones will bring their Muscle Shoals-inspired soul music to Johnny Brenda’s later next month. Their debut album, Half the City, was released yesterday, channeling the usual legends (Sam Cooke, Otis Redding, etc.) and fitting well with others currently atop the soul revival train (Alabama Shakes, Charles Bradley, Sharon Jones). And since I can’t get enough of these new soul artists, you’ll find St. Paul & the Broken Bones opening up this week’s edition of Swollen Fox Radio.

Half the City is one in a handful of solid new recordings released ...

Veteran hip-hop four-piece Bone Thugs-N-Harmony will play at the TLA tonight. Bone Thugs have been relatively quiet lately aside from September’s catchy “Everything 100″ single release that has kept fans eagerly anticipating a new LP. They’ve always been melodic enough for the radio and gritty enough for the streets; a recipe that shot them to stardom in the mid-’90s. Watch “Everything 100″ below and get tickets here.

Union Transfer welcomes singer-songwriter Caroline Rose to its stage. Rose’s debut album America Religious rides a wave of genres influenced by her Northern and Southern heritage. She describes it ...

After a few weeks off, I’m excited to return to our weekly playlist, highlighting the best upcoming shows and new releases.

Newly announced shows this week include Childish Gambino, Chromeo, Bombay Bicycle Club, Future Islands, and more Yeezus dates for Kanye Wast (including a stop in Atlantic City). Much closer on the horizon, there’s a slew of good concerts coming up next week: Cloud Control, St. Lucia, Saintseneca, Cate Le Bon, and others. It is, however, a ...

Is serendipitous musical discovery still possible? With most listening being done on computers and mobile devices that have access to endless catalogs and discographies, that utilize advanced matching algorithms for recommendations, can we randomly happen upon our new favorite record? There are a billion arts & culture blogs that will point you to the latest, the greatest, and the up-and-coming. What’s left to discover? Is there no free-will in unearthing what you will love? Conversely, I personally think that there will always be a human, spiritual, or je ne sais quoi element to finding new things, especially in music, literature, ...
