‘Adopt a Highway’ Review: An Honest, Open-Road Ballad About Life’s Unpredictability [SXSW]

Actor Logan Marshall-Green ’s directorial debut Adopt A Highway feels tailor-made for Austin’s South by Southwest Film Festival. It has nothing to do with horror, mind you, despite Blumhouse’s production banner. What could double as an acoustic country ballad whispers a nomad folk tale about one simple task: getting by. Indie bloodlines run through Marshall-Green’s jailhouse poetry without overly romanticized narratives, more appropriately about passing moments than revelations. It’s about mu...

Watch Eddie Vedder Cover Jason Isbell’s “Maybe It’s Time” From A Star Is Born

Bradley Cooper has said he modeled Jackson Maine, his character in A Star Is Born, off of Eddie Vedder -- and although Maine's musical output marks him as more of an Eric Church-style country-rocker, you can certainly see the Pearl Jam frontman's influence on the way Cooper carries himself in the film. As it happens, … More »

The 30 Best New Musical Artists of 2018

Amnesia Scanner Amnesia Scanner is the experimental electronic duo of Ville Haimala and Martti Kalliala. Created in late 2013, the group is not exactly new, but they have remained somewhat unrecognizable and wholly inaccessible until this year. As they used to refuse interviews and released several unannounced, unexplained EP's and mixtapes, Amnesia Scanner floated around as illegible codes for devoted listeners to decipher. Every track title was prefaced by "AS", and each music video reg...

Why rock band Evanescence has teamed up with an orchestra for its live shows

Logic might have suggested when Evanescence leader Amy Lee had her first child, a son named Jack, three years ago, that motherhood would have meant she would step back from music to some degree. After all, raising an infant is a major, time-consuming effort in itself, and being a parent is bound to shift priorities away from one’s vocation and toward family life. For Lee, who was born in Riverside, becoming a mother has had the opposite effect, triggering a new level of musical inspiration and p...
