Heart: Fanatic

Seminal female rock band Heart just released their fourteenth studio album, Fanatic. The album is somewhat of a companion to their new memoir, Kicking and Dreaming.

Sarah McLachlan: Rarities, B-Sides, and Other Stuff 2

I've been a fan of Canadian singer-songwriter Sarah McLachlan since long before her Lilith Fair days, stumbling upon her second album Solace in the early 1990s and shortly after devouring 1993's Fumbling Towards Ecstasy. Though her recent releases haven't captivated me so intensely, my fondness for her elegant voice hasn't diminished over the years. Sarah... Continue Reading →
