Conor Oberst has always kept himself plenty busy, but with the release of both Ruminations last October and Salutations this March (both via Nonesuch Records), the prolific songwriter has outdone himself even by his standards.

He brought his tour to Brooklyn on July 20 for a performance at Prospect Park for the BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival. The performance once again saw him backed up by The Felice Brothers as his live band just as they did last year during Northside Festival.

As if that wasn’t good enough, the show featured an outstanding triple threat lineup that included opening sets from both Hop Along and Big Thief.

On the second night of the 2017 Northside Festival, we were treated to a special performance at Rough Trade from Brooklyn’s own Big Thief. Not only was this a special show for Northside, it was a special show in that it was the unofficial album release show for the band who put out their absolutely fantastic new album Capacity (out now via Saddle Creek), which is bound to end up on many year end lists. Along for the ride and kicking things off were openers Really Big Pinecone and Mega Bog.

Lucius and Big Thief at Central Park SummerStage (September 23, 2016)

On September 23, I said goodbye to the always wonderful SummerStage series at Central Park, as we looked ahead towards fall, and the end of outdoor concerts in the always welcoming park.

Headlined by Lucius (who we saw earlier in the year at both the Gramercy Park Hotel and MHOW), who were still hard at work touring Good Grief (released this March via Mom + Pop Music). They brought along support from the hard-working Big Thief, who seem to have opened more shows than any other band in New York this year, continuing support for their strong debut Masterpiece (released via Saddle Creek in May), as well as JD McPherson.

It was a strong triple bill of music, and a wonderful way to bid summer farewell.

Find Lucius’ setlist posted below, along with photo galleries of all three acts.

We All Want Someone’s Best Albums Of 2016

By Will Oliver, January 31st 2017 — with 1 comment

2016 was as busy as any other year in recent memory with the constant release of new albums. It seemed like every week we were bombarded with a surprise album drop from a big star, a long overdue follow-up, or promising debut album that came out of thin air. It was a bit overwhelming, but a damn good problem to have. We lost a few heroes in David Bowie and Leonard Cohen, but gained a few instant classics that served to preserve their memory with an amazing sendoff. Radiohead, A Tribe Called Quest, The Avalanches, and The Last Shadow Puppets all finally returned to us. Frank Ocean delivered not one, but two albums.

There was no shortage of music to be found, especially good music. Below, you can find 50 favorites from 2016, including a few honorable mentions. Believe it or not, there were albums I left off that I would’ve gladly liked to at least mention to you, as they’re all worth your time. That’s saying something.

Call it what you want, best, top or favorites. Either way, these were the 50 albums that helped me get through 2016.

We All Want Someone’s Best Songs of 2016

2016 was a wild one. It’s not a year that many of us will look back all that fondly on, but then again, it wasn’t all bad. There were a lot of great albums and songs released throughout the year, from artists of all sizes. From the surprise drop, to the long-awaited albums from greats like Radiohead.

Tomorrow I’ll share my list of my favorite albums of the year, but first, lets dig in to the songs that I had on constant repeat throughout the year.

Best Albums of 2016: Anthony’s Picks

By Anthony Bauer, January 29th 2017

Looking back on the past year, it has got to be one of the craziest years of music in recent times.  Sure there were many ups and downs, but there was always one constant through all of it: music.  We were treated to high profile releases, low profile releases, releases that flew under the radar as well as a few releases that didn’t quite live up to the hype.  From the underrated to the overrated, there were more releases than I can even remember but there were a select group of albums that shined the brightest and were albums I continued to revisit throughout the year which made my list of best albums from 2016.

Before we dive into my top favorite releases of 2016, lets quickly talk about some albums that were just as good as anything released last year, but didn’t get as much love as they truly deserved.  With a year like we saw in 2016 it was bound to happen that a few albums slipped through the cracks so lets jump into a short list of honorable mentions that landed just shy of the top 20 (as well as a few releases that were highly underrated):

Best Songs of 2016: Anthony’s Picks

By Anthony Bauer, January 22nd 2017 — with 1 comment

It’s safe to say that 2016 was a pretty weird year, but one thing we can all agree on is just how crazy of a year it was for music.  From the highly anticipated to the complete out of nowhere surprise drops, the year truly didn’t disappoint at all.  We finally got that Radiohead album we were all clamoring for and even got some releases we weren’t expecting to see in 2016 (we’re looking at you, SchmilcoAbandoned Mansion, Epoch and Run The Jewls 3).

There were so many great releases that it was difficult keeping up with all of them, which was literally half the battle.  You’ll notice that some artists I chose multiple songs which is not a mistake, its 100% on purpose.  There were certain songs from certain artists off of certain albums that just were just so good that I couldn’t not include them.

Frankie Cosmos at Webster Hall (November 13, 2016)

By Will Oliver, January 6th 2017 — with 1 comment

Not many artists had a more successful 2016 than Frankie Cosmos. Her album Next Thing (released via Bayonet Records) was one of the year’s finer releases, and she went from playing places like Shea Stadium early in the year to headlining her own show at Webster Hall on November 13.

Support came from another band that had a big breakthrough in 2016, Big Thief. Their debut album Masterpiece (released via Saddle Creek) was one of the finer debut albums you’ll find, and another highlight of the year. They along with Frankie delighted the Webster Hall crowd with a warm set of tunes that served to remind us that there are still many treasures to find in the world of indie rock.

Find Frankie’s set posted below along with a gallery of photos from both her set and Big Thief’s.

Preview: Frankie Cosmos at Webster Hall

(Frankie Cosmos at Bowery Ballroom)

This Sunday Frankie Cosmos will return home for her largest headlining show yet at Webster Hall. The performance wraps up quite a year for Greta Kline, who released a great record with Next Thing (released via Bayonet Records), and has only been getting bigger and bigger as the year has gone on.

We first caught her this year at Shea Stadium, and then Bowery Ballroom. Now at Webster Hall, with support from the equally terrific Big Thief as well as Vagabon. It will be a great night of music across the bill.

Tickets for the show are currently still on sale, but don’t wait until Sunday, as it may be sold out by then.
