While My Father Sleeps, the full-length debut by Oh, Rose, serves the double purpose of introducing a fiery indie rock combo and delivering the poignant backstory of its leader and namesake Olivia Rose Huebner. The Olympia-based quartet formed in 2014, establishing themselves around the Pacific Northwest with a well-received EP and subsequent mini-album before landing a deal with Park the Van Records in hopes of finding a wider audience. As a songwriter, Huebner has flashed shades of personal catharsis since the beginning, weaving themes of struggle, defiance, and renewal into elastic lo-fi missives full of explosive peaks and valleys. She and the band were already well into the songwriting process for this album when in early 2017, her mother, Wanda Lee Stephenson, passed away. A writer and storyteller in North Carolina, Stephenson had been devoted to her own lifelong work in the form of a book called While My Father Sleeps. In tribute to her mother's unfinished book, Huebner adopted the title for her band's debut and channeled her grief and anger into a wild dynamo of sound and sentiment. To a chugging soundtrack of mid-'90s indie rock, she confronts her fury head-on in opener "25 Alive," building up her dulcet vocals into a thrilling crescendo of anguish and power. The cool hues and buzzing synths of "I Believe" ride a propulsive groove while "Phoenix" uses its downbeat front half and frenetic conclusion to explore the stages of emotional rebirth. Throughout the album, drummer Liam Hindahl and bassist Kevin Christopher create a nimble but mighty rhythm battery while keyboardist Sarah Redden throws in some interesting textural counterpoint to Huebner's guitar work, but ultimately it's the singer's wildly undulating voice that remains the central focus here. Shifting from sweet and airy to downright feral, Huebner's instrument is an impressive one and even if she sometimes errs on too much repetition or indistinct mumbles, there is a unique power to both her delivery and the way she presents her songs. Finding inspiration in family and in friendship, While My Father Sleeps is as much a sonic statement as it is an emotional one. ~ Timothy Monger

Kraftwerk, 50 Years Ahead of Their Time

Kraftwerk, the most influential electronic music group in history, have always been ahead of their time. Ahead of technology, composition, and on stage performances, the Germans proved to the public that robots were also capable of emotions and paved the way for techno, new wave and even hip-hop.

Marc Ribot, the anti-guitar hero

For thirty-five years, Marc Ribot’s name has been on the covers of albums by Tom Waits, Alain Bashung, Diana Krall, John Zorn, Robert Plant, Caetano Veloso and numerous other artists, and when he's not busy lending his unique guitar to others, the New Yorker takes pleasure, under his own name, in breaking down and re-building rock, jazz, funk, Cuban music and anything his fingers touch.

Shoegaze, the calm & the storm

The two faces of shoegaze, the rock current that lit up England in the early 90s, couldn’t be more fundamentally opposed: a fierce battle between violent guitars and silky vocals. From its precursors like the Cocteau Twins and Jesus & Mary Chain, to its godfathers My Bloody Valentine, Ride and Slowdive, shoegaze is always on the move and many of their heirs still strum their guitars and create electric sounds.
