Justin Townes Earle’s Single Mothers finds the singer-songwriter weaving his stories through family blues. Its stars dwell on broken families and empty homes, the goodbyes and animosities of those unfortunate people on the losing end of a “Hungry Heart” walk-out and the memories they left behind in an attic’s picture-drawer. Their melancholy, obnoxiously literal at times (see “Today and a Lonely Night”), is given a surprisingly warm partner in Earle’s Americana.

"Bonnaroo brings good vibrations for all"
Nestled among the frozen plains of the snowy American landscape is a locale as foreign to some as it is familiar to my corn-growing, cheese-loving roots. The inhabitants of this region bundle themselves in fur hats and down parkas and express themselves with an abundance of “Oh ya”s and “You betcha”s. Their daily struggles range from whether or not to make meatloaf for dinner to how to best cover up a botched attempt at kidnapping your own wife for ransom. This is the Midwest, or at least the Midwest envisioned by a pair of goofball filmmakers known informally to us as the Coen brothers. Yah der hey.
So, over the weekend I got to spend some time with E.L. Katz and Pat Healy, who respectively directed and starred in the new film “Cheap Thrills,” and I learned a thing or two. I learned about Danish people. I learned about what really matters when you’re making a movie. I found out that some men can just rock a mustache. And I learned that sometimes light and dark can blend together beautifully.
Brooklyn-based Woods create an intimate feel on their newest studio album, With Light and With Love. Blending ’60s country slide guitar, folk and lo-fi, the four-piece ensemble has developed a strong fan base since their start in the mid-’00s. Woods have created their own label, on which With Light and With Love was released, and started an annual music festival in Big Sur, Calif.

So, “The Grand Budapest Hotel” came out and I saw it, but before we get to that I’d like to take a minute to frame the film with two masterpieces from last year.
On Dec. 28 at 11:30 p.m., Phish played their final note of the night. By the time I got home at 12:15 a.m., the show was available for download.
Three of the 55 hopelessly out-of-shape cops that make up the University of Wisconsin-Madison Police Department broke up an onion ring saturday night so they could all enjoy its savory fried flavor.
With the release of his critically acclaimed album Man on the Moon: The End of Day in 2009, Scott Mescudi (aka Kid Cudi) was welcomed to the music scene with great reception. Over the last five years, Mescudi has altered his technique, which has been followed by mixed reviews. His latest album Satellite Flight: The Journey to Mother Moon is by far the biggest departure in style, and unfortunately it doesn’t make as big of an impact as his previous work.
When I was told I would be able to write a film column, I knew exactly what to write about—the soundtrack.
Friday, Feb. 21, a sold-out Majestic Theater was ready to escape the brutal reality of this midwestern winter with a triple bill featuring New Beat Fund, RDGLDGRN and Aer. Starting at 8:00 p.m., the standing room filled with fans in Hawaiian shirts and flowered dresses, eager to forget about the negative wind-chill outside.
1788— Massachusetts becomes the sixth state to ratify the constitution and the fourth to mousify it.
So, the Oscar nominations are out, and a lot of people are happy, a lot are angry, and a lot of people really can’t make themselves care. Personally, I had cognitively understood “they’re kind of silly and unnecessary and don’t mean anything,” but it took “Inside Llewyn Davis” getting almost entirely passed over this year for me to really feel it.
How’s a daughter supposed to react when her mom calls her up one afternoon and says she’s fallen in love?
Cass McCombs is a unique kind of artist. He doesn’t involve himself in the press nor does he particularly enjoy the music industry. What he does love, however, is music. This passion has been evident in all of his albums and it’s the outlet he uses to make himself shine in a trade where being subtle is not the name of the game.
The Daily Cardinal had a chance to speak with vocalist Mike Mattison of the Tedeschi Trucks Band before they embarked on a lengthy tour.
It’s time the legal drinking age should be changed. I mean, come on, weed is almost legal! Yet, we still have to be 21 years of age to purchase and consume alcohol? Being of the tender age of 19 and having a late spring birthday I have quite a bit of time to wait before I can legally purchase and consume alcohol. I will admit I had a fake but now that I recently have gotten it confiscated and do not want to go through the trouble of purchasing a new one, it’s time I write this article.
