May your thoughts and prayers be with the RIAA this holiday season

For only the truly desperate would pull a stunt like this: Now, in an unusual case in which an Arizona recipient of an RIAA letter has fought back in court rather than write a check to avoid hefty legal fees, the industry is taking its argument against music sharing one step further: In legal documents […]

Lights Are Flashing for the Stone Enders’ CD Release Party

In a local music scene so dominated by Noise Rock and other genres with screamy, spit-laden vocals, where do The Stone Enders fit in? I think for most music lovers, there will always be a soft spot for all things pure. The Stone Enders use little effect in their recordings and you can hear all

Review: Gavin Castleton’s A Bullet, a Lever, a Key

As impossible as it truly is to pigeonhole Providence’s own Gavin Castleton, the Phoenix could probably do better than “Best Local DJ/Electronica Act 2005, 2006, and 2007” — the singer/composer/rapper/producer rarely spins wax and isn’t exactly a dance music auteur.
