Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin conquers Russia

Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin

The members of Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin finally get some payback for naming their band after a Russian diplomat.

Son Volt rewind: Listen to Uncle Tupelo's first demo tape

Uncle Tupelo Demo

Youth Lagoon and Majical Cloudz at the Majestic

Trevor Powers of Youth Lagoon has some big shoes to fill.  Following in the footsteps of Boise, Idaho’s other big indie export Built to Spill, he showed tonight why the accolades from bloggers across the country are well deserved. Building on a continuous onslaught of praise since his first album came out in 2011, Powers has put together a cohesive band that complements his strengths well live while keeping his introspective lyrics intact on a harder edged canvas for all to see.

Justin Vernon and Volcano Choir return with new album and tour



Justin Vernon's eclectic project Volcano Choir has been recording the follow-up to their debut album "Unmap" for the last three years. The new collection entitled "Repave" due out in September is the culmination of hours in Vernon's April Base recording studio in Fall Creek, just outside Eau Claire. We have a snippet of Volcano Choir's new material off the album and a look at April Base Studios in a preview video. The new track sounds more accessible than some of the ambient experimental songs from "UnMap."
