Dave and Don with Chris

You know I fall in love with beautiful music.  And I have fallen in love. Our friends in Darlingside have done it again!  The new album "Fish Pond Fish" is out!  And it is magnificent.  We listened to the whole thing the night of release (10/9 at 8pm).  And it was a magical listen.

We fell under Maria Brosgol's hypnotic trance a handful of years ago when she first started making music under the moniker Belle-Skinner.  She seduces you with a mix of mid-century pop with fingerstyle contemporary folk, and then makes you cry.  

Mary Scholz

Our good friend, Mary Scholz was feeling inspired by the Statue of Liberty. Her latest single releases on October 8th. It's called "Lady Liberty," and is as statuesque a song as its inspiration.

Blitzen Trapper's Eric Earley

Singer-songwriters have been tackling existential questions about life and death since time immemorial… or at least the 1960s.

Owen Pallett is someone whose creativity can seem... sort of unfathomable.

Bad Bunny closed his second album, YHLQMDLG, with a promise to return in nine months (so right about now) with another, which he also claimed would be his last.

When the 63rd annual Grammy Awards ceremony airs on Sunday, Jan, 31, the show will probably be unlike any Grammys we've seen before. The pandemic has changed the music industry in all sorts of ways, and that includes its "biggest night" — but there's still a ton of great music to celebrate, and many of this year's nominated artists are World Cafe alumni.
