Battles Blasts Detroit With Sound
Two keyboards? No problem!

Battles begins each song like mad scientists, with the guitarist and keyboardist playing riffs, which are later layered into the song. As more and more tunes are looped in, a rich noise erupts that is equal parts chaos and melodic. Changing time signatures and the pulsing, frantic throws of former Helmet drummer John Stanier whipped the crowd into a frenzy.

Get to Know The Antlers
"Hospice" Album Cover

Want to get to know a truly great indie artist? Look no further than The Antlers.

In an era where indie rock artists like the Arcade Fire have become Grammy-winning superstars, there’s a massive danger of the genre being diluted and exploited. Fortunately, there’s still plenty of unpolluted musical treasures to discover in the genre.

Local talent is something that never falls short in Detroit, from artists selling paintings on random street corners to musicians filling venues like St. Andrews and the Magic Stick. But this time, we stepped out of Detroit to check out local Michigan bands in Ann Arbor

Stars Hits Detroit With an Indie Bang
Stars_Blinding_Light_2

Seeing Stars is the kind of wonderful experience you hope for every time you see a live show. This is a rock band that seems truly committed to their craft (pun partially intended as they are on the label Arts&Crafts, hardy har har!). The show cemented in my mind their status as one of the most powerful and creative forces in independent rock today. If you haven’t heard Stars, you should listen to them. And if you haven’t seen them, you SHOULD, it is well worth the $17 admission fee (or whatever it was after Ticketmaster’s cut).

For those of you who prefer a slight chill in the air as opposed to humidity, your calendar probably looks a lot like mine…a big red circle around September 22, the first day of fall. And if you love the season as much as I do, you’re itching to dive right into all things autumn.
