Featured Artist: Adrian Bourgeois

One of the greatest things about music is its ability to both enhance and directly impact your mood. With the right mixtape, you can go through a whirlwind of emotions in just a few short moments.  But what about when you’re looking for that same fluency with only one artist? Well, Adrian Bourgeois has you covered.

From the mellowest of tracks, to ambitious tambourine-enhanced duets, Bourgeois’ pallet is a wide array of offerings for even the trickiest of soundtracks. Between poignant mini-ballads to humble simplicities, you can be sure Bourgeois is a name to watch in 2013.

The Editorialist: 5 Songs To Wake Up To This Christmas

For as much chaos and stress as the holidays can sometimes bring, there’s a certain magic that comes along with this time of year. It may be cliché, but when those Christmas lights go up and the fireplace kicks on, I can’t help but be brought back to a time of simple childhood joys like Dunkin Donuts’ Munchkins while decorating the tree, staying up all night on Christmas Eve, and tearing into presents Christmas morning.

So this year while you’re celebrating the holidays with loved ones, relax, switch on these songs, and enjoy a little background music to your holiday. Merry Christmas. Continue reading ‘The Editorialist: 5 Songs To Wake Up To This Christmas’

Featured Artist: Gentlemen Hall

If you’re from Boston, you know Gentlemen Hall. But for those not fortunate enough to know these guys, we’re about to change all that. With rave reviews from not only MTV, but The Boston Phoenix and of course, these guys play infectious jams littered with addictive rock, pop and plenty of synth to carry out the dance tunes.

If you like The Killers, MGMT, and a touch of Boston pride, you’ve gotta check out Gentlemen Hall. Listen to “Gravity Will Break Our Bones” below.

Soundtrax: Songs For Early Winter by OurStage on Grooveshark

Ah, winter. For so many, the subtle oncoming of winter means snowy days, icy windshields, and a whole lot of bundling up. But for all the slight difficulties the season brings, it’s also a time for those little joys like outdoor ice skating, scarves and mittens and of course, a winter playlist. With igloo making days and hot cocoa drinking nights in mind, we’ve compiled a list of some of the season’s greatest reminders. The list includes OurStage artist Ezra Thomas.

Songs Of The Revolution: Little Barrie

The shag-haired, leather-clad men of Little BarrieLewis Wharton, Virgil Howe, and the eponymous Barrie Cadogan – are exactly what you expect. When they stopped into our studio for the final Songs Of The Revolution session of 2012, they were a vision of no-frills rock and roll. Polite, of course, but these guys were there to work. After a chat about the set up – no isolation, everything in the room, don’t care if it sounds dirty, “we don’t really play stripped-down” – the guys jumped into three songs ranging from propellant riffage to groove-based mood rock. Barrie himself is known for his session and touring guitar work with acts like Spritualized, Edwyn Collins (who has produced the band), Morrissey, The Chemical Brothers, and more. This range of quality music, along with his stellar guitar playing, is on display in this exclusive session for OurStage. Watch the streaming videos and download the mp3s for free. See you in 2013.

So without further adieu, here is our very own, one of a kind, end of the world playlist by the OurStage staff. Check it out right here and find the track list after the jump. Continue reading ‘OurStage’s End Of The World Playlist; Songs For The Apocalypse’
