Interview: Hesta Prynn is In


NYC word-slinger, musician and artist Hesta Prynn has always evoked a quirky and intriguing style. These days folks are boasting from the city and where-the-hell-ever she frequents about her skills and delectable selections, craftily spun and delivered, whether on the tables or on the mic. This morning (well, yesterday morning), a chat with Dr. Prynn [...]

CMJ Music Marathon Announces 2012 Lineup, Oct 16-20 In NYC


Most music festivals are fun; I would argue that only a handful are important. CMJ Music Marathon is both. More of an experience than anything, CMJ spreads 1,300 performances across 5 days at more than 80 different New York City clubs and venues. Instead of highlighting big acts with established fan bases, CMJ is consistently [...]

Salina @ Arlene’s Grocery Friday + Free Download


Salina Sias has a voice that is soothing and smooth. She creates mood and dynamic particularly naturally, weaving stories on top of melodies that rise and flow with careful words. If her self-titled, 10-track debut record (released September 2011 on Eclectic Muse) is any indication, a tastefully crafted show at Arlene’s this Friday is one [...]
