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 […]

[MP3] Maria Taylor: “Tunnel Vision”

Um, how did this one just pass me by? Maybe because it premiered in the Wall Street Journal (everyone loves indie!). Whatever, all that matters is that Maria Taylor is coming back with a new album, Something About Knowing. It drops October 29 (via Saddle Creek) so that’s really all I’ll be listening to […]

Wilsen

A long gaze out the bedroom window, hoping to find something that perks her up. It’s been a long winter. She spots a daffodil but no smile breaks out. Her eyes well up;  tears begin to form. Why can’t you just bring me happiness, she asks, more of herself than anything greater she may […]

Fallulah: “Dried Out Cities”

Fallulah makes a quick return to Knox Road (see previously posted “Out Of It”) with her latest head-bopping single, “Dried Out Cities.” The Danish superstar is delivering pop hit after pop hit and there’s no slowing down in sight. Enjoy the ride while it lasts.

[MP3] Alice and the Glass Lake: “Luminous”

Lift yourself with purpose. Race to me.

New Fallulah song

Fallulah, one of my favorite Danish artists and occupying space on many a mix I have made, recently teamed up with our good friends over at Danger Village PR. People I like joining together? Always a good thing. And I have quickly been satisfied, as the catchy singer/songwriter just re-released her pop hit, […]

Hannah Winkler

I was recently talking to my Canadian friends, The Wooden Sky, about the excitement of their NYC show last night at Rockwood Music Hall (after they sold out our Knox Road show at Pianos back in May!), and much to my chagrin, realized I wouldn’t be around. They have an incredibly tight and […]

Flotilla, kinda wanna be ya

I’m beginning to think Canadians are putting something extra special in their girls’ food. They must be! I mean, so much female vocal talent coming from the country at once, it’s just not fair! We’ve already featured The O’Darling, my last post was about Metric, and Stars, as you should know, are one […]

Some br(easy) listening for a Saturday: Mary Stewart

Yes, breezy is spelled wrong purposely. It’s supposed to be clever. I realize it’s probably not.

Regardless, I proclaim today Mary Stewart day. From Nova Scotia, she fits the subdued mood quite well, as I can sit back, close my eyes and relax, watching birds swoon out the window while listening to […]
