Molly Sullivan: Winter '13

Each cover is hand-painted by Molly herself!

Singer-songwriter Molly Sullivan was recently nominated for a CEA by the local music community, so I thought that listening to her latest release would be a great way to kick-off 2014.

Pure Predication: Dead Boy

With song titles like "Dead Boy," "Poison Oak," and "Devil's Weed," and the run-time is a mere 5:07, you can expect the 3-track EP Dead Boy by Pure Predication to be driving, aggressive, dark and brutal.

Before you can begin to address the album "Things That Go Bump In the Dark" by IsWhat?!, you must first throw away any preconceived notions of what a hip-hop album is or what 'urban' music is -- because the aesthetic of this album lies somewhere between beatnik coffee-house poetry-jams and late-night dance club after-parties.
