Ani Cordero’s new album, Querido Mundo (Dear World), is (as they used to say on MTV) a call to stop being polite and start getting real. “I made this record as a reaction to recent political events,” says the former drummer for Brooklyn band Pistolera. “Music is my main form of activism and it’s my hope that these songs will encourage political participation and much needed conversations.” The album’s first single, “Corrupción,” couldn’t be more current, or more timeless. “Corrupción has two levels, a direct level — aimed at politicians in Puerto Rico where nepotism and corruption are rampant,” says Cordero, who grew up in Atlanta in a Puerto Rican family. “And at a wider level it’s about the corruption of governments world-wide, calling out their abuse of power and resources.” The inciting protest song is accompanied by an optimistic video by illustrator and animator Stephanie Wieland, and premieres below with...

The New Schematics

Mar 3, 2017 |  0 comments

Nashville’s The New Schematics spent their first fifteen months as a band proving that the Born Without Borders Tour was indeed the right name for their tour that spanned 97 shows in 42 cities across the US and Canada. As a band that quickly put so many shows under its belt, it is no wonder as to why they’ve gained the reputation as a live act with “the crowd control skills of preachers” (Cougar Microbes) whose “passion for their art is palpable” (Valslist). The band officially began as a duo, with Cory Bishop (vocals, guitar) and Michael Bare (bass, vocals), who brought a rotating cast of bandmates on the road with them. A few months after they pulled him on stage for a guitar solo in New York City, Shanan Lau left the band that was opening for The New Schematics in order to join Cory and Michael as a full-time third member. They now usher in 2017 with the title track from their upcoming sophomore EP, Your Year (Feb 24). The sprawling rock’n’roll soundscape coupled...

Annie Stokes is an indie-folk musician from Virginia. Raised in the nation’s capital on an eclectic mixture of musical theater, bluegrass, and classic Americana, her music is a fusion of city sounds and country soul. Although playing guitar only began as a hobby, soon her hometown was buzzing about “that girl who sounds like Jewel.” Annie’s lilting voice, poetic and introspective lyrics, and finger-picking style draw listeners in with their rootsy and authentic feel. She’s found, after years of making music and connecting with audiences, that when the artist prioritizes the song and the human experience that it’s based on, everything else falls into place.

Wreckless Eric is Eric Goulden. He was given the name to hide behind. After a while he realised he was stuck with it. Onstage he hides behind nothing, he tells the truth with big open chords, squalls of feedback, lilting enchantment, bizarre stories and backchat. His new album “amERICa” out now on Fire Records is enjoying universal acclaim from critics and public alike. Nothing Eric has to say sounds like it was said by someone else first. Some people can’t take it. Thirty seven years of touring have left him in good shape. He’s coming to town. “One of the greatest songwriters ever to come out of Great Britain” Marc Riley BBC 6 MUSIC “amERICa is that rare record. Goulden is grownup, with all of the stereotypical benefits: an air of wisdom, emotional texture, and, perhaps most cliché of all, a seasoned voice. amERICa isn’t complacent or satisfied; Wreckless Eric anatomizes his surroundings with the wide-eyed thrill of discovery. His American flyover reveals simmering...
