Together, they call themselves Branden Daniel and The Chics. I saw them perform live at Chop Suey a couple weeks ago, on a Wednesday night.

First Listen: Born Of Ghosts – Torch

~ by Robin Fairbanks ~ Born Of Ghosts – Torch One of the benefits of working in this business is happening upon a new band by accident which was the case two years ago. I was at the High Dive to see a friend’s band and Born Of Ghosts was on the bill. Although formed in 2009, I thought the potential was there but the band needed to hone their act, write voraciously, and get into a solid studio for better recordings.

David Bazan + Andrew Joslyn with the Passenger String Quartet ~ Album Review

~ by Robin Fairbanks ~ Album Review  David Bazan & Passenger String Quartet – Vol 1 David Bazan & Passenger String Quartet are about to embark on a late Fall tour upon the release of their self-titled album Sept 16th. This 10 track album is like a 10 act play with each song a vignette. Tales of life’s foibles and woe, the tracks are like reading letters you find in an old shoebox in an attic. They’re stories of life set to music and although the music itself is beautiful, the lyrics tell tales that aren’t always so rosy. But then again, isn’t that life? Bazan doesn’t sugarcoat, he tells
