DB2015: Thievery Corporation

DB2015: Thievery Corporation

Thievery Corporation is one of those bands that I have loved for years, and still feel that I found much later than I would have liked. The chance to shoot them at this year’s Decibel Festival was one that couldn’t be passed up, especially considering it was the first time I had the chance to...
DB2015: Bonobo w/ Manatee Commune, Taylor McFerrin & Gilligan Moss

DB2015: Bonobo w/ Manatee Commune, Taylor McFerrin & Gilligan Moss

The first of my two nights behind the lens of this year’s Decibel Festival had me posted up at the Showbox for a sold out evening with Gilligan Moss, Manatee Commune, Taylor McFerrin and Bonobo. Though I didn’t get a chance to shoot Gilligan, the duo had the early crowd in a dancing frenzy as the floor began...
[Photo Essay] Treefort 2015

[Photo Essay] Treefort 2015

Treefort has done it again. Although the Boise music festival is operating within the shade of a massive forest made up of much larger, more widely recognized trees, such as the well known Coachella, SXSW, or Pitchfork trees, they don’t seem to be in the same business of growing in areas like circumference, height, or sponsorship money. They’re...
[Artist Spotlight] Reignwolf

[Artist Spotlight] Reignwolf

WORDS and PHOTOS by JAKE HANSON Since I moved to Seattle, KEXP has introduced me to numerous musical acts that left a heavy dent, but I think it’s safe to say that Jordan Cook, aka Reignwolf has impressed me the most thus far. Needless to say, when I heard he was headed back to Seattle...

[Photo Essay] Arcade Fire Live at The Gorge

WORDS and PHOTOS by JEREMY GOULD Driving through eastern Washington in late summer is quite bland; the flat, dried out landscape crawls by with hardly a change in the ocean of brown grass. We were driving from Montana and as we passed through Idaho and into Washington we entered a wall of smoke, casting a strange pale light on our journey to the Arcade Fire’s colorful...
[Song of the Day] Grimes - Go

[Song of the Day] Grimes – Go

Grimes “Go” I’ll say it: I’ve become a sucker for pop music. As a seasoned veteran of the blogosphere (~4 years!? I don’t know…) I’ve reached the point of irrelevance and I’ve seen the passing trends sky-rocket, explode, and fade in to the retrograde. I’m not on that hype shit anymore, I just don’t have...
Sasquatch! Fest 2014

Sasquatch! Fest 2014

Yes. We are about three weeks past due on any sort of appropriate reporting from Sasquatch! Festival, although I don’t think anyone has ever held us to any standard for being timely on our music coverage. All that matters at this point is that we had a wonderful time and we would scream it from a...
[Interview] Seven Questions with Iska Dhaaf

[Interview] Seven Questions with Iska Dhaaf

WORDS and PHOTOS by BEN LINDBLOOM & TRAVIS GILLETT Iska Dhaaf (Nathan Quiroga and Benjamin Verdoes) seems to output pure and substantial brilliance. It’s only been out of a lack of personal ambition that we haven’t written about them sooner. Possibly, we didn’t have the time and energy to honestly discuss their efforts with the...
Treefort Music Fest 2014 // Sunday Recap

Treefort Music Fest 2014 // Sunday Recap

 Eric Gilbert and the Treefort council addressed an important issue from previous years – dwindling attendance on the last day of the festival. This year, Sunday had the strongest lineup it’s ever had. WORDS and PHOTOS by BEN LINDBLOOM The Main Stage // Aan from Portland Woodland Empire // Cathedral Pearls from Spokane The Neurolux...
Treefort Music Fest 2014 // Saturday Recap

Treefort Music Fest 2014 // Saturday Recap

Saturday of Treefort 2014 arrived with a well-seasoned befuddlement, a piercing and oscillating sensation between the ears, and a difficult to reach 2PM “wake-up-call.” PHOTOGRAPHY by BEN LINDBLOOM and TRAVIS GILLETT.   The Main Stage // The Grizzled Mighty from Seattle     El Korah Shrine // Mr. Gnome from Cleveland     El Korah...
Treefort Music Fest 2014 // Friday Recap

Treefort Music Fest 2014 // Friday Recap

Nothing quite compares to Treefort Music Fest. I may boycott all music /music festivals until I come back to Boise next year, for Treefort. The only thing I can find Catie’s thorough overview to be missing, is that it’s the only time you can drink for three days straight and not absolutely hate yourself at...
[Interview] Seven Questions with Gap Dream

[Interview] Seven Questions with Gap Dream

WORDS and PHOTOS by BEN LINDBLOOM Burger Records sent a handful of the Burger family out to caravan around the US and Canada in what is called the Burgerama Caravan of Stars Tour 2013, headlined by The Growlers. It was one of the strongest lineups I’ve seen. It was magical. I was a little late, but...
