DARIUSTX Announces New Album

DARIUSTX, the side project of singer/songwriter and composer Darius Holbert, has announced his fifth studio new album, DARIUSTX V. The Angels of Goliad. The album, which is 17 tracks long (yes, you read that correctly), is set to be released on December 11th. This has been an album in the works for years with help from Ryan Rees (CeeLo Green, The Ting Tings) and Adam Boose (Dawes, Conor Oberst, The Velvet Underground). 

When discussing the album, Darius shared, “this album showcases some of my best friends and family, who also happen to be some of the top A-list studio talent in LA, including the incredible voices of Nicole Britton and Caroline Wilson. This album trends towards Americana and leans more heavily on my Texas and Louisiana roots.“ Fans can pre-order the upcoming album by clicking here!

Seven Bands To See At Boston Calling: #4, Marina and the Diamonds

It’s almost time! It’s less than one week away until we’re back at Boston Calling once more. So, to keep with tradition, here is our list of who you need to be keeping an eye out for!

On our list so far: #7. Sharon Van Etten / Krill / The Ballroom Thieves, #6. Run The Jewels, #5. Halsey

Today we talk about our #4 pick, Marina and the Diamonds.

I’m not entirely sure how to describe her, but all I
can really say about Marina and the
is that I am 145% sure we are going to have a ridiculously great
time watching this performance. She’s part dancefloor, part opera house, but it
all works.


Her crowd will be wild and energetic and ambitious, which
will be a perfect fit. And for those who may be new to Marina and aren’t sure
how to handle it, it’s simple: rule number one is you gotta have fun.

For fans of: The Ting Tings, La Roux, Ke$ha
For a taste, check out: “Homewrecker,” “Primadonna,” “How to Be a Heartbreaker”
Catch them: Saturday, 5:45, Red Stage

Seven Bands To See At Boston Calling: Lucius

With Boston Calling just a week away, we’ve decided to make a list of seven bands you do not want to miss. Whether they’re a headliner or an opener, whether they’re hip-hop, dance, rock & roll, or something somewhere in the middle, there are a handful of sets that you’re definitely going to want to pencil into your schedule.

Yesterday, we posted our first band on the list, Bearstronaut – seen here!

Today, we move on to #6: Lucius


Self-classified as “indie/whatever,” this five-piece hailing from Brooklyn possesses a sound that perfectly captures the balance between somber and soulful, dreary and danceable. Fronted by dual female vocalists Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig, be sure to listen for their infectious, gritty, and yet still somehow bubbly sound early on Day One. And don’t be surprised when their debut full-length album makes some noise this October.

For a taste, listen to:Hey, Doreen
For fans of: The Ting Tings, Tegan & Sara, Gin Wigmore
Set time: 9/7, 2pm, Red Stage

Check back tomorrow for our #5 band to watch!
