    Negura Bunget

      The most compelling black metal comes from Scandinavia, where it erupted in the early ’90s from the lands of ice and snow that inspired it. Yet there are exceptions, and Negura Bunget (“Black Fog”), from Romania—where they know from darkness and mist-shrouded mountains—are one of them. Forming in 1995, Negura hit their stride in […]

    Godspeed You! Black Emperor

      Pioneers in orchestral rock composition, Montreal’s Godspeed You! Black Emperor (named after a Japanese biker gang) are a challengingly original ensemble—usually at least nine members—trafficking in experimental, chamber-rock, hard ambient, and post-industrial to create immersive soundscapes that will take you where no other bands have gone before. Instruments include three guitars, French horn, cello, […]

    Zac Brown Band

      The Grammy Award-winning band out of Atlanta have had 10 No. 1 country singles, two platinum albums and one that went triple-platinum. Last month, they sold out three back-to-back shows at Fenway Park and were called “superstars” by Rolling Stone, who attributed much of their success to social media. They are promoting their new […]

    From Good Homes

      This “hick-pop” quintet from northwestern New Jersey settled on their name after being arrested for breaking into a hometown venue to play a Replacements cover after being bumped from the lineup earlier in the evening. A judge sentenced them to community service on the grounds that they “seemed to be from good homes.” Their […]
