Wolf Alice : Rams Head Live

Wolf Alice’s sound is all about hidden sharp edges. Deep dangerous things lurking just beneath the surface until they come exploding out in an all-out barrage. A stage presence that is driven by their music, they visibly feed off the energy of the crowd creating a feedback loop through the ebb and flow of their set. Another band that recordings just don’t do justice to, especially the subtle power of Ellie’s voice. Check out our full gallery of shots and be sure to catch them on tour....
The Birth of Stoner Rock in Palm Desert | Features | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

The Birth of Stoner Rock in Palm Desert

Cannabis is as influential to the sub-genre as the desert itself. 'Desert rock,' though used interchangeably with 'stoner rock,' is not necessarily the same thing. Desert rock was a localized phenomenon; stoner rock a psychedelic one. The birthplace of the two, however, is the same....
Julian Cope - How Can You Cope With All This? | Features | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

Julian Cope – How Can You Cope With All This?

Julian Cope, a guy who once titled an album "Too Freud To Rock and Roll, Too Jung To Die", has a list of things he’s done or is doing, besides playing music, probably as long as anybody’s arm. Whether he's been able to turn himself into a mythological figure may not be certain yet, but he is certainly running close. Oh, and mythology is definitely one of the things he dabbles in, with dabble being an understatement....
Sly Stone - A Sad, Sad Family Affair | Features | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

Sly Stone – A Sad, Sad Family Affair

From a child prodigy, to rock producer, to leader of the first truly integrated rock/soul/funk band, and author of some of the best modern music and two of the best rock/soul/funk albums around, Sly Stone's life and musical story is a sadly unfinished one full of 'what-ifs.'...
One Of The Best Rock Albums Ever - 50 Years Later, Has Forever Changed Yet? | Features | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

One Of The Best Rock Albums Ever – 50 Years Later, Has Forever Changed Yet?

In 1967, Arthur Lee and his then stable band, Love, came up with Forever Changes - widely considered to be their, and one of rock’s greatest masterpieces. While making some impact in Europe, in particular England, at the time, the album was practically ignored in the US. Now, 50 years later, the album is being recognized for what it is (even by Rolling Stone, who missed its greatness the first time around)....
The Cycle Of Sounds | Features | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

The Cycle Of Sounds

Throughout Western history, music has had a place in daily life - growing its foothold year after year. With the turn of each decade, music has turned as well. Perhaps in an effort to appeal to a developing society... Perhaps as an indicator of that same society's development......
The Neighbourhood - The Neighbourhood | Reactions | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

The Neighbourhood – The Neighbourhood Reaction

The Neighbourhood have tried to recapture some of their initial musical potency with their third studio album, and while I felt like it was a solid effort overall, it still felt a bit contrived when compared to everything else out there and at this point I'm not sure what they could do to regain that initial spark....
Enter Shikari : 9:30 Club | Photos | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

Enter Shikari : 9:30 Club

Enter Shikari brought every bit of expected energy and then some. The crowd’s energy was easily that of a group twice the size, and the exchange between the band and crowd was a true spectacle. For this photographer, it was almost enough to set my camera gear aside and wade into the pit. Check out our collection of photos from a fantastic show at the 9:30 Club in Washington D.C....
Where have all the rock critics gone? | Opinions | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

Where have all the rock critics gone?

Most of the big names like Greil Marcus, Robert Christgau, and Simon Frith are still around; somewhere in columns in established cultural magazines, books, and even academia. But it seems that their style of integrated cultural, musical and sociological analysis that at the same time deconstructs and reconstructs certain musical work is less and less visible. What has happened?...
The High Divers : The Hamilton DC Live | Photos | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

The High Divers : The Hamilton DC Live

The High Divers took the crowd at D.C.’s Hamilton Live by surprise and didn’t stop for their entire 60 minute set. Playing a mix of unreleased songs off their new album and favorites from their 2015 album Riverlust, their feel good rock vibes, infectious energy, and larger than life sound made a fan of this concert photographer....
Django Django - Marble Skies | Reactions | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

Django Django – Marble Skies Reaction

While Django Django's previous efforts felt a bit more artsy in intention, the experimentation on Marble Skies feels done with the sole purpose of creating something fun. And it is fun, it's a lighthearted, head nodding romp full of brilliant melodies and earworm hooks. It's almost impossible not to be pulled into their joyous orbit....
Ty Segall - Freedom's Goblin | Reactions | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

Ty Segall – Freedom’s Goblin Reaction

Ty Segall pulls out the full arsenal on Freedom's Goblin delivering a 19-track ride that goes all over the place. In lesser hands it might feel disjointed or convoluted but with him it just shows how truly gifted he is and just how in tune he is with the craft of rock. He clearly marches to the sound of his own beat and it's incredibly exhilarating. Freedom's Goblin is one hell of a ride and further proof that he may just be a mad musical genius....
U2 - Songs Of Experience | Reactions | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

U2 – Songs of Experience Reaction

U2 have clearly had their ears to the 'streets' and have found inspiration from a number of different sources. The fact that they were able to lean on all of these influences without it sounding contrived is maybe their greatest accomplishment. And as someone who's not a die hard U2 fan, I thoroughly enjoyed their modern sound - it felt relevant yet still very much true to who U2 are. Songs of Experience feels like a true return to form for the legendary band and a worthy (and voluntary) addition to my music library....
