    There are some people who exist on a completely different level than the rest of the world.  They possess such incredible talent and their creations are so complex, with every detail tuned to perfection.  After seeing Jack White play the WaMu Theater in Seattle on August 14, I am convinced that he is one of these people.

    By Myles Crawley

    They say that Robert Johnson went down to the crossroads and sold his soul to the devil. If he did, then quite possibly he has been reincarnated as a white man from New Zealand. If you think that this sounds like the ravings of a madman, wait just one moment and let me introduce you to Willy Moon.

    Jack White’s New Video

    Today Jack White released “Freedom at 21,” the third video from his universally acclaimed debut record Blunderbuss (Third Man/Columbia).
    Directed by Hype Williams, whose trailblazing 1990s work with 2Pac, The Notorious B.I.G. and Missy Elliott defined the modern hip hop visual aesthetic-and whose more recent clips for Kanye West and Nicki Minaj expanded it that much further.

    Sasquatch! 2012

    Story and Photos by Mallory Leisten

    To answer one of the more popular questions asked after returning from the Sasquatch! Music Festival held at the Gorge Amphitheater in George, Washington (good one, Washington State) it should be stated first and foremost that yes, Tenacious D did have a giant blown up penis casually stationed behind the pair onstage. But more about that later.

    The Lost Notebooks Of Hank Williams

    From heartbreak to honky-tonking, from Jesus to gin mills, Hank Williams wrote about life’s deepest truths and sang with an ethereal authority on such unforgettable songs as “Your Cheatin’ Heart,” “I Saw the Light,” “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry,” “Cold, Cold Heart” and many more.

    When Hank Williams died, at the age of 29, in the back of his Cadillac sometime early morning on New Year’s Day 1953, he left behind a scuffed, embroidered brown leather briefcase, which he used to carry bound notebooks, among other items, darkening their pages with lyrics and song ideas. Some were fully finished, some just started.

    Last week we met up with Katherine Blamire and Jessica Davies of Smoke Fairies, a folk and blues duo from a small town in southeast England.  Their powerful, imagery-laden music is laced with dark, eerie, and melancholic undertones that are so ethereal and mysterious that they almost allure the listener, drawing you in and leave you wanting more.  We sat down for a chat in front The Key Club on Sunset Boulevard before their show, opening for Rasputina, and discussed topics such as what led them to music, how they came up with their band name, and their new album, Through Low Light and Trees.
