DRILL FESTIVAL @ THE ECHO/ECHOPLEX

April 2nd, 2017

Wire played like rolling thunder, fully acquitting a month’s worth of pre-show hype and every screwhead happening of the last three nights. They returned for a long encore capped by a brief and cacophonous appearance by an ad-hoc Pink Flag Orchestra. This guitar army crowded the stage for a final victorious blaze-up.

JULIA HOLTER: HAVE YOU IN MY WILDERNESS

September 18th, 2015

When Holter chooses to loosen the reins on her voice and howl at the moon a bit, as she does on the sublime and bittersweet “Betsy on the Roof”, the result is particularly thrilling. The melancholic sentiments behind the title track and “How Long?” are not undermined but rather underscored by its more sun-dappled moments on tracks like “Feel You” and “Everytime Boots”; as in life, perceived moments of joy and sorrow naturally complement one another, and the results are supernatural.
