ALBUM REVIEW: Mary Lambert ‘Heart On My Sleeve’

Close your eyes and imagine a spoken word performance. It takes place in a small coffee house in Portland, Oregon. (What? I’m biased.) The performer is a woman named Mary Lambert. She is strong and completely secure in who she is and what she believes. Welcome to Heart On My Sleeve.

This album is quite literally the story of her life. Her voice effortlessly takes vocal queues from everyone from Lana Del Rey in “Ribcage” to Regina Spektor in “Wounded Animal.” She channels jazz, R&B, pop, rock and alternative, giving each track a distinct sound.

LIVE REVIEW: Modern Baseball, The Catalyst, Santa Cruz

modern baseballThere’s nothing quite like the energy at a live show, and Saturday night in Santa Cruz was no different. Headlined by the ever-touring pop-punk heavyweights The Wonder Years, the show marked the beginning of the second half of a nationwide tour alongside the UK’s Gnarwolves, local outfit The Story So Far and Philly natives Modern Baseball.

Modern Baseball is an incredibly quirky band that has taken American emo and somehow made it accessible to a largely pop-punk fanbase. At a glance, the quartet – formed in 2011 – more or less look like a group of dudes holding instruments, and who aren’t terribly worried about cultivating a rock star image. The stages are getting bigger, but it MB still feels like the neighborhood garage band that made good, in the best possible way.

WATCH: Matt Nathanson “Headphones” Featuring LOLO Music Video

Matt NathansonGrab some tissues, everyone. Matt Nathanson just released one of the sweetest and humanity restoring videos ever for his song “Headphones.” The video chronicles Nathanson’s journey to Peru, along with Starkey Hearing Foundation, to give over 1000 hearing aids to those who need them the most, but simply cannot reach or afford the help.

During the video’s intro, Nathanson states that he loves music more than people, and would gladly go blind or mute than go deaf and not be able to hear music, which is something I think most of us can relate to.

You can check out the video and a statement from Nathanson after the jump. 100% of the artist and label proceeds for this video are being donated to the Starkey Hearing Foundation. For more information on how you can help, click here.

Spose Tour Van Robbed

Unknown

Native Mainer, and well-known singer Suppose, had his tour van broken into in St. Louis on Monday. Spose, AKA Ryan Peters, had stopped with some friends at a barbecue joint when the incident took place. Between the laptops, microphones, etc. over $30,000 worth of equipment was taken, including recordings for Spose’s upcoming album.

Insurance can apparently only cover a small amount, so fans are stepping up. Within 24 hours, over $7,000 has been raised to help the musician. There is currently over $10,000 raised.
