Listen to Pioneer Scalps from Cast Spells
New album Cotton Jones is amazing!
It seems that finding a good band or artist here in Switzerland, is about as hard as finding chocolate that I don’t like…it just doesn’t happen very often. So it makes it all the more enjoyable when you do find that rare artist, one like Sophie Hunger. With a repertoire consisting of mainly acoustic folk [...]
In preparation for their 5th full-length album release due out March 24th, The Decemberists are offering up a free download of “The Rake’s Song”, from The Hazards of Love. Apparently the whole album plays like a story, so the album will be performed straight through for their upcoming concerts. You do have to sign up [...]
Whoa, whoa, whoa! I don’t know why exactly why I was expecting this to be some low-key, layed back track. Maybe it was the slow intro, or the title, but I got caught completely off guard. By no means is that a bad thing either, I’m absolutely loving this song right now. It has def [...]

It’s gritty, yet funky bass, which is essentially the pulse of the [...]
I was completely dumbfounded when I showed up to work at my restaurant Wednesday night to find that Sasha Dobson was going to be performing. Ms. Dobson first caught my attention almost two years ago with her single “Without You”, a sultry mix of folk rock and bossa nova. It’s just a shame that her [...]
So Polaroid decided to send me those tracks that I loved….so glad…I have been listening to them on repeat. Hope you enjoy too!
