Diagrams: “Phantom Power”

Tunng has been one of my favorite bands over the last several years, and former member Sam Genders is creating equally delightful pop under a new name, Diagrams. Diagrams actually released a debut EP in 2012, but he has a new album, Chromatics, coming out on Full Time Hobby in January and just […]

[MP3] Vincent Colbert: “Baseline”

Vincent Colbert is another example of weather and location influencing art. Colbert wrote his debut EP, Stranger in My House, when he moved to Michigan, and, well, felt like a stranger in his own home. He didn’t know who he become, or who he was. Transitions are one of the most challenging periods […]

Radical Face @ Kesselhaus in der Kulturbrauerei, Berlin

Ed Note: Abby’s Back!

At the only German gig in his 5 stop European mini-tour, Knox Road favorite Radical Face (Ben Cooper) was in typical form. Armed with his Jacksonville, Florida-based band, he delivered, per usual, a tome of stories plucked from a variety of his records released since 2007. It seemed to […]

Coasts: “Wash Away”

The fourth (and fifth) Coasts song I get to post on Knox Road? My am I lucky. More of the standard Coasts euphoria, which they’re somehow able to provide on every song they make. Not an easy feat, my friends!

Bonus:

The 4 song EP, with the title track above, is out via […]

Brave Shores: “Dancing Underwater”

Start your weekend with this rollicking new jam from Jay and Stefanie McCarrol, the brother/sister duo Brave Shores, off their new EP out October 28.

Bonus:

Wilder Maker: “Hope Springs”

He’s growing tired. His energy isn’t where it used to be. He thinks about what he was doing 2 years ago; 5 years ago; 10 years ago. Times were happier then, werent they? But even then, he used to think about how much better things were going to be in 10 years, 5 […]

Charlotte McCafferty: “The Messenger”

Charlotte McCafferty is a student at the University of Maryland (maybe now you’ll understand the Knox Road name if you didn’t already) and whenever I get a chance to highlight our alma mater’s talent, I don’t hesitate. McCafferty is working on a solo album of original songs, and from the sound of her first […]

S/T new album from SOS out today

The killer new album from SOS is out today, but you may be surprised I’m posting it on Knox Road. I’m not typically one to write much about R&B, but this sophomore effort is engaging me in an unexpected way. The production is the clear stand out here, blurring the lines (yikes, no […]

Landlady

I guess I’m kind of behind the curve on this one, as Pitchfork just reviewed their album (with a dandy score in the sevens!), but Brooklyn’s Landlady deserves even more love. With free-flowing energy that has been severely lacking in so much of everything these days and a somehow tender abrasiveness, Landlady packs a […]
