The Shoreworld Heads Southwest For The Second Annual Liberty Music Fest Aug. 15-18

I’ve had the opportunity to attend several music festivals this year. Most were quite horrendous from a business perspective.

Shoreworld: Eryn Shewell – The Moment Of Her Life

Eryn Shewell has been doing her own thing for as long as I can remember. If there was ever a theoretical situation where a bunch of musicians would be hanging out in a group, inevitably there would be Shewell, off in a corner with her own group of people. As …

Shoreworld: Waiting For Henry – Raising A Toast To Everyone’s Ghost

Waiting For Henry is best described as a brand new band of old-school friends. Dave Slomin is an extremely humble guy who sent me tracks for his new record with the twice repeated message, “I hope [the record] doesn’t suck too much for you.” And the short answer to that …

Shoreworld: Sir Dove – New Jersey’s Nihilistic Answer To Commercial Existence

Pat Veil is an artist that has evolved diagonally. He utilizes musical doorways with forced entry and lurks down avenues of dark, intellectual passage, and it has put him in his present and most interesting situation to date. That situation is a band called Sir Dove.

Sir Dove is the …
