Treasure Mammal 700

by Carly Schorman

I have to admit that going on tour with Treasure Mammal might be on my secret bucket list. And, given their revolving cast of players and dancers, I might actually have a shot at making this dream a reality someday. This summer, the ragtag band packed up and hit the road for a nine city tour in just 11 days. We caught up with Abe Gil after Treasure Mammal returned to home turf to talk T-Mammal, tour van tunes, and more…Read More →

purple spectre 700

by Mark Anderson – What is jazz? And what makes it good? These are questions I feel the best jazz musicians in the business ask themselves constantly while pushing a medium that exists on the bleeding edge of music. Of course, all answers to the question are entirely objective, butRead More →

by Mark Anderson

Produced by Grammy-nominated Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes, Langhorne Slim, Benjamin Booker), with both indie-rock and soul overtones, All My Fires caught my ear immediately and is one my favorite Tuscon albums of 2019.Read More →

R. Ariel 700

by Carly Schorman

Phoenix songwriter/author and world traveler, r.ariel, is off on a whirlwind musical adventure that has taken her across continents and, as one of her avid social media followers, I love being taken around the globe as she brings her art and music to new listeners and new locales.

R.Ariel recently released her new album, Where You Are, earlier this year and her new book, No One Likes Us, on the SAME DAY. Either one of those artistic undertakings seems like it could be inordinately consuming, but R.Ariel seems to exist in a perpetual cycle of creation…Read More →

brother teresa 700

by Jacob Unterreiner

Brother Teresa really wants you to dance, but they don’t want to make it easy for you. The band’s acrobatic, boogie-inducing riffs are infectious, but sometimes they come in irregular time signatures; forcing the audience to think before they groove.

The band is fronted by a pair of singer-guitarists in Joe Allie and Salah Moharram, and is rounded out by bassist Bailey Stewart and drummer Dom Crooks. I sat down with the whole confounding crew in order to discuss their evolution as a band and their debut record: Jam Chill Slam…Read More →
