waxtablet_black-taxi_list

Goth hearts and the governor

Wax Tablet
Mainers with some degree of self- consciousness about how their state is perceived might remember BILL MAYO, the dude who wrote the mysteriously cultish Mainah battle song "Toddy" that exploded as an uncredited Internet video in 2009.

beat_jaycaronandslop_list

Eight songs from Jay Caron & Slop

Poetry in Slow Motion

waxtablet_conjjjecture_list

Beneath the headlines

Wax Tablet
In a week dominated by anxiety about the NSA tapping into our Internet activity and concern for the protestors hurt by rioting police in Istanbul's Taksim Square, we lost our ear for cheery summer jams.

beat_Trails1_list2

Trails (and Kool G Rap, which is crazy)

Dropping things from way up high
Twenty-eight seconds. That's the length of Kool G Rap's contribution to Trails' new Anvils & Pianos , the hip-hop duo's third release (and it might as well be their fourth release, too — at 19 songs, it's a monster).

beat_spose_list2

Kings and queens of summer

 Free, to do what you want, any old time
What’s more “summer” than hip hop and pop radio?
By: SAM PFEIFLE  |  June 07, 2013



musicfest_Bonnie_list

Outdoor music to get your mellow on

 Get comfy on the grass
The lazy, the restless, the cheapskates, yuppies, ravers, snobs, and prudes: the magic of the outdoor summer concert ecosystem is that it offers very nearly everyone who doesn’t care about exquisite sound quality a reason to get out of their house or state for a day, evening, or weekend.

beat_isobell_albumcover_lis

Like Tristram and Isobell

Sea Spells and love songs
Isobell are now a tight five-piece, with Bekah Hayes's piano and keyboard work providing alternately crisp melody lines and echoing organ atmosphere, and Chris McKneally's electric guitar tone moving between airy psychedelia and precise prog.

waxtabs_SumnerMcKane_list

True community radio

Wax tablet
It's been three years since the filmmaker and composer SUMNER MCKANE finished In the Blood, a documentary about the lives of turn-of-the-century Maine lumbermen and river drivers, but the project is still gaining traction.

beat_Robert-Stillman-list

Robert Stillman returns with the Archaic Future Players

Station Wagon ride with John Fahey
For a guy who plays the saxophone the way people talk about, Robert Stillman is an awful good drummer. And keyboard player. He does a fair bit of impressive composition, too.

waxtabs_DeniseDill_list

Breaking up the band

Wax Tablet
Why did Jesse Gertz break up Glass Fingers, his one-horse electro-hop noise jam, to start LEVERET, another solo project?
By: PORTLAND PHOENIX MUSIC STAFF  |  May 23, 2013



beat3_joefarren_list

Joe Farren’s countrified second release

South by southeast
It's been more than five years since Joe Farren's last record, a debut number on which he showed off his multi-instrumental chops and riffed on Americana themes.
By: SAM PFEIFLE  |  May 23, 2013

beat2_Snow_list

A jazz piano take on old-time roots

Snow falling on cedars
Tom Snow is a guy who's been around a bit. You'd have to try fairly hard not to have come across his jazz piano performances in and around Maine over the last 20 years. You make some friends that way.

waxtabs_CokeWeed_list

At the drugstore

Wax tablet
An incredible crop of metal, crust punk, doom, and otherwise heavy bands turn up on a nasty new comp out of Boston titled SealbeardS, named after a DIY venue that was shut down last fall

beat_putnamsmith_list_05171

Filling up with Putnam Smith

Kitchen, Love, and Emily Dickinson
Putnam Smith wishes he could trade places with Emily Dickinson.
By: SAM PFEIFLE  |  May 16, 2013

beat_trickybritches_list051013

Tricky Britches are in Good Company

 Don’t call it a throwback
Tricky Britches lean pretty heavily toward the old-timey end of the spectrum, with a deep and abiding respect for the body of American stringband work, manifesting itself in original songs that are instantly familiar.
By: SAM PFEIFLE  |  May 10, 2013



waxtabs_milkmansunion_list

Several strings attached

Wax Tablet
A goodly amount of ukulele news this week.
By: PORTLAND PHOENIX MUSIC STAFF  |  May 09, 2013

beat2_whitcomb_list

Four new works from Whitcomb

The free Conqueror
Part of Whitcomb's appeal is that the material and the performance are of a piece, everything placed just so and meticulously machined.
By: SAM PFEIFLE  |  May 10, 2013

waxtabs_deadtrend_list

Crossing state lines


DEAD TREND, an '80s hardcore punk throwback group, slap down their debut record False Positive this week, and make it official with a show at Mathew's on May 5.
By: PORTLAND PHOENIX MUSIC STAFF  |  May 03, 2013

beat_worriedwell_list

A vibrant and forward Worried Well

Baroque me, Amadeus
There's something baroque, something emotional and primal, vivid and stark about Luck, the band's first proper full-length release.
By: SAM PFEIFLE  |  May 03, 2013

beat_malletts_bridge_list

The Malletts know the lay of the Land

Rub some mud on it
On their new and third full-length release, Land , the Mallett Brothers Band alternate between boozy and anthemic ballads and boozy and anthemic sing-along stomps, always providing plenty of opportunity for just about anybody to find a personal touchpoint.
