Raised on American blues, James “Boo Boo” Davis is one of the remaining few musicians who learned to sing and play the blues first-hand while picking cotton in the Mississippi Delta. At 71 years of age, we still haven’t seen the last of Boo Boo Davis.

If you’re not into the traditional cheese of the “Purple People Eater” or you are sick of the same old awkward cut of “The Monster Mash,” this playlist will help you build your spooky spirit and is great for that Halloween party you're having this weekend!
Stepping onto the stage barefoot came Whiskey Shivers, looking like nothing more than a band of hillbillys. But then they began playing, slipping so comfortably into a bright tune, a rough, high-speed bluegrass chases among the instruments.
Former country princess Taylor Swift has been releasing music videos and tempting fans with a few songs from her new album, “1989.”
On Oct. 8, 2014, Chance the Rapper and Travis Scott entertained audiences both student and citizen alike at the EMU Convocation Center. DJs and Channel 95.5’s promotions team appeased the crowd prior to the event, and the Convocation Center had special edition Eastern Chance the Rapper shirts on hand for patrons.
The Eastern Michigan University Convocation Center announced earlier today that Chance The Rapper will be coming to Ypsilanti to perform on Wednesday Oct. 8, 2014.
These two albums share a common theme: good rappers who have been disappointing me lately. Kool A.D.’s work with Das Racist showed that he was talented but, so far, his solo work has been underwhelming. Homeboy Sandman is a brilliant writer at his best, but his best hasn’t been showing lately. I still have faith in both of them, though, and at the rate that they release music, we’ll probably see plenty more of them this year.
Country musician Justin Moore will be performing at Eastern Michigan University’s Convocation Center on Saturday, March 15. The show is part of his “Off the Beaten Path” tour, and will also feature Randy Houser and special guest Josh Thompson.
Music flowed out of the doors, windows, nooks and crannies of Pease Auditorium once again on Tuesday night as the Eastern Michigan University’s percussion ensemble played “one of the most performed pieces of percussion literature in the world,” as Director John Dorsey put it.
I’ve been excited for Phantogram’s album since I heard their beautiful single, “Nothing But Trouble,” last month. The song, which sounded like an electronic remake of Arcade Fire’s “Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains),” made me excited to hear the band’s other work. The album didn’t disappoint.
I didn’t mean to review two albums by EMI Nashville. Maybe they just have a monopoly on country musicians named Eric.
A lot of music fans put atmosphere at the same level as songwriting. There’s nothing necessarily wrong with that, but I find this impossible to do. If an artist tries to create a certain mood, but doesn’t seem to put effort into its melody or music, I get bored. Thus, dream pop isn’t a genre made for me.
As far as the consensus goes, 2013’s album of the year seems to be a toss-up between Kanye West’s “Yeezus” and Vampire Weekend’s “Modern Vampires of the City.” A college dropout against a group of Ivy Leaguers. What a perfect way to sum up how delightfully strange 2013 was.
Releasing an album in December nowadays almost guarantees an artist from being excluded from year-end lists, since the majority of publications publish their lists at the beginning of the month.
This year was especially hectic, with several notable albums coming out during the final month of the year, hopefully making publications question the logic of revealing their lists so early.
The Ark in Ann Arbor has a long-standing tradition of hosting excellent acoustic music shows, and the Birds of Chicago on Thursday night was no exception.
Over the last couple days, three of my most anticipated albums of the year were released. Here are my thoughts on them.
I’m glad Snoop is back to using the “Dogg” in his name again.
