UNSIGNED SPOTLIGHT: Laska

Blending a multitude of genres into your music can be either a blessing or a curse. Sometimes the end result is a mess with no identity, or the band isn’t quite comfortable with any one sound, or the music comes out great but can have difficulty reaching new fans. For Minnesota/Wisconsin-based sextet Laska, however, their mix of folk rock, alt-rock, Americana and soul is the kind of sound some artists strive for a decade or more to create. And their debut album, titled Ceiling Zero, is a blessing in every…

UNSIGNED SPOTLIGHT: Feed Us

Regardless of what you do for a living or where you’re at in life, it’s important to venture outside your comfort zone every so often. Especially in music, where opening your mind a bit more can lead to some incredible new experiences. Which is why when I pressed play on Feed Us‘ 2017 LP Delete Your Account, about 30 seconds in to the first song I realized 1) “This isn’t something I usually listen to but it’s incredible” and 2) “I absolutely want to spread the word about these guys.”…

UNSIGNED SPOTLIGHT: Bruise Violet

As we’re being reminded in various areas of American society right now, teenagers are capable of making a positive, and extraordinary, difference in all our lives.

How on earth does this tie in with our latest Unsigned Spotlight feature? Enter St. Paul, Minnesota’s Bruise Violet, a trio of badass young women making waves in their local scene and beyond with their no-holds-barred, unapologetic…

Why Whosah Does Music

The fans. The lights. The stages. Signing autographs. Feeling important. These might be some underlying motivations people would expect for musicians. But those motivations, while they might be fleetingly fulfilled, won’t weather the stormy path of surviving as independant musicians. The grind to keep playing music, booking shows, promoting, paying thousands of dollars for recordings which are mostly given away for free, is hard. For us in Whosah, we get pumped about the long and difficult road ahead, because we know why we’re doing it. Please follow and like us:

ALBUM REVIEW: New Medicine ‘Breaking the Model’

There are three things that put New Medicine near the top of my “new music I absolutely love” list. Number one: The theme behind their newest album Breaking the Model. The name says it all, and anyone who knows me will know that I’m all about stickin’ it to society. So far New Medicine is off to a good start in my book. Number two: This alternative rock quartet is from Minneapolis. It’s not that I feel obligated to like every band from good ol’ Minnesota, but when the band…

6 Must-Watch Indie Directors

Here’s a secret about yours truly: I’m obsessed with films… and that’s also a huge understatement. While I have nothing against the big blockbusters that seem to have taken over modern cinema (I could watch Marvel’s films for days), the film fanatic in me has been known to watch a wide variety of films and has the DVD collection to prove it – ringing it at over 400+ DVDs, excluding my television series collection. I get plenty of gruff about that from my parents. Of the films I’ve seen and…

Bad Movies With Great Soundtracks

Have you ever seen a movie so bad you wanted to hate it, but something was holding you back and you couldn’t dislike it entirely? I have a theory on the matter: the redeemable quality that saved those movies from your hatred was the soundtrack. We all know the effect that music can have, especially on us as individuals, and I think you might agree that it includes making not-so-good movies into relatively tolerable ones. Now brace yourself, some of the films on this list may be your favorites or…
