The Ovaries-eez, Teri Quinn, and Calvin Arsenia @ Mills Record Company

I don’t think there’s a better time for folk music than the early Spring. Something about the combination of fallen leaves and budding branches, the temperature fluctuations, the electricity of it all lends itself to banjos, acoustic guitars, and stunning melodies. And this Saturday, Mills Record Company will turn into a hotbed for folk music. […]

Record Store Day Cometh Part IV

I’ve written about pop, indie, metal, and some of the releases that will be in store on Record Store Day 2016. Now it’s time to write about a genre that has defined, in some ways, the Midwest: country. From swampy blues to jangling pop to southwestern gothic, Mills Record Company is going to have bands […]

Relax with Under The Big Oak Tree’s Local Honey

Under the Big Oak Tree might be a long band name, but it fits. The St. Joseph bluegrass group’s second album, “Local Honey,” sounds like the Ozarks in album form. The standard bluegrass elements are there. Mandolin, guitar, fiddle, double bass, autoharp, etc. The harmonies are tight, the vocals smooth and, well, dripping with honey. […]

Colored Vinyl @ Mills Record Company

We all know the most important thing about records is the sound–the warmth that comes from the tip of a needle, the depth in the sound, the act of playing it. That said, part of the joy of owning a record is when the artists make the record, the gatefold into a sort of art […]

Songs for a Spooky Halloween

I’ve written about various Halloween concerts–from indie pop to classic rock, to doom metal, to country. That’s well and good, but what about all the private, semi-private, and public parties happening in houses all over the city? What songs should they have in their playlists to guarantee a spooktacular Halloween? While this is by no […]
