WATCH: Against The Current and Tyler Carter (Issues), “Cold Water (Major Lazer/Justin Bieber/MØ Cover)”

Major Lazer‘s “Cold Water” is taking over the airwaves, thanks to its superstar guest vocalists Justin Bieber and MØ. It is an undeniably catchy tune, so much so that even rockers are loving it! Against The Current and Issues frontman Tyler Carter teamed up to release their own rendition of the track. Rather than keep things EDM-based, the cover is a more stripped down vibe complete with acoustic guitars. It works very well: ATC vocalist Chrissy Constanza and Carter sound excellent together and really give the song a new and improved…

SHOW REVIEW: Boston Calling, September

In its second triumph, Boston Calling has returned to dazzle music fans with a lavish mix of indie rock, hip-hop, EDM, and everything in between in a two-day takeover of City Hall Plaza. As I enter the grounds, the setup is already worlds better than it was this past May.
