New Music Discovery: Animals EP by MAYVE

At My Music, My Concerts, My Life, we get a large amount of unsolicited requests to review new bands. We've always said "no." We want new music discovery to come to us the old-fashioned way—word of mouth. For some reason when MAYVE contacted us and asked if we'd review their new EP Animals, I said "yes." Without even listening to the band first. It's hard to tell if it was a moment of clarity or a change of heart but I was prepared for this to be either good...or a very large mistake. What I wasn't prepared for was what I heard.

Fran's Top 10 Albums of 2015

For a year filled with new releases from artists that I love (Clutch, Imagine Dragons, Metric, Grace Potter, The Neighbourhood, etc.) my Top 10 list is filed with new artists and late arrivals.  This means I either listened to way too much new music this year or my tastes are changing.  Regardless, it's a great list.  Below are my Top 10 albums of the year, listed by release date.

Concert Review: Clutch with Crobot @ The Electric Factory - Philadelphia, PA 12/28/15

"Let me have men about me that are fat, sleek-headed men and such as sleep a-nights. Yond Cassius has a lean and hungry look. He thinks too much; such things are dangerous."
