montreal guitar trio: glenn levesque, marc morin and sebastien dufour.

If you were to judge last night’s perfectly wondrous joint performance from the California Guitar Trio and the Montreal Guitar Trio at Natasha’s by its first set, you would swear each group hailed from opposing universes of style and performance temperament. The beauty of such as an estimation, though, was that it turned out to be at least partly correct.

The first set was where each trio played separately. The MGT, which was making its Lexington debut, opted for a physical and percussive command that veered off into world music accents of...

Formed in 2009, London-based The Marbles Jackson has quietly received glowing reviews, including from BBC Radio 6, for their expansive dream pop and for covering well-established songs and putting innovative and even challenging touches to them, such as The Doors’ “Riders On the Storm” (see the video below). Their music isn’t focused on driving bass lines or pounding electronic beats. There aren’t any elongated guitar solos or howling vocals. Instead, The Marbles Jackson create music that is lush and minimalistic, if not almost dream-like or even fantasy. It’s soothing and contemplative, where each note played on the guitar and keys can...

Yuck! You mean to tell me that good ol’ Australian singer/song-writer Daxton Monaghan has been rocking in some way, shape or form since the early 1990’s yet there’s no official Facebook page? Right now there’s one of those fan-posted fact-boards where you kind of have to cross your fingers and hope that the descriptions etc. rely on real information…but there’s no possibility of interacting here with what might be one of your favourite new sounds…no way to reach out & contact…all we can do is listen.

Not all rock-stars or even indie-musicians always want to connect or spend every hour of...

The Doors were one of those bands who don’t just have fans. They have followers, worshippers. Many see the late Jim Morrison as a poet, mystic, icon. The musicians were also highly regarded as masters of their instruments. Keyboardist Ray Manzarek, drummer John Densmore and guitarist Robby Krieger all helped ensure the band’s sound was more (way more) than the sum of its parts. The sound of the band is also very timeless, the sonic qualities of their studio recordings still make the songs sound fresh and vital, not dated to the late 1960s. All in all, these guys were a...
