Other Music Festival Day 4: Ashley Paul, Elbow Room, Johnny T and the Raccoonists, and more

Ashley PaulDay 4 of Burlington's Other Music Festival is another jazz colaboration heavy night, but the big attraction of the night is ex-Burlington experimental giant Ashley Paul in collaboration with Anthony Colman. One of the most exciting acts of the whole week. Also fleshing out the night are Johnny T and the Raccoonists, Elbow Room, Michael Gardiner/Derek Beckvoice/Peter Negroponte, Xander Naylor/Ian Kovac, and Zack Cooper/Christ Madden/Vic Dimotis. Things kick off at 8pm at North End Studios as usual.

Weekly Feature #206b: Sticklips, live at Unkle Mike's on July 17

There’s nothing quite straight-forward about this four piece’s slippery, somewhat dissonant, winding folk music. With sounds of fingers sliding up and down acoustic guitars, crystalline vocals and blatantly strange electronic interjections, Sticklips’ tunes leave listeners curious as hell. There are so many unanswered questions in each song. Music that seems like it should be so easy to figure out, with nice female vocals and some quirky instrumental aspects, instead creates riddles with its lyrics and ever surprising musical changes. There’s a depth in Johanna Warren’s thin, yet enticing vocals that makes it more than what it seems. In a song like “Cattleships and Bruisers,” the bass line is low and whispering and it change in a heartbeat from sweet and acoustic to uplifting and electric as waves of feedback enter without a moment’s notice. There is an eerie, ghostly quality to Sticklips’ sound as it combines so many aspects but spits it out in a pretty unique way. - Read Lauren Piper's interview with the band here.


Fitz and the Tantrums - Thursdays in June at Spaceland

The soulful pop lad and his merry band of minstrels, Fitz and the Tantrums are holding down the Thursday-night residency at Spaceland this gloomy June.

Weekly Feature #205a: Monogold play Kevchino's party at The Knit on 06.16

This Brooklyn 3-piece rocks around town with a falsetto voice and nicely patterned rhythms which had them on the road this spring with The Stationary Set after an appearance at SXSW. Formed in 2006 they released an EP titled “Waves” in 2007 and are now promoting their newest release “We Animals” which came out last year. These recent road dates find the band's live show played out more aggressively than their sleepily tinged album suggests. But in their love for all things mammalian, Monogold finds themselves situated somewhere between the sea and the land playing shows to friends and fans who can appreciate hand drawn cover art and self-recorded music. - See Monogold live at Kevchino.com's party at The knit on June 16 + read Simon Heggie's interview with the band here.
