Re: “Soundbites: A Tribute to Donovan and a New Home for the Nightshade Kitchen

I laughed out loud when I read Jordan Adams' 'wildly underrated' description of Donovan. Pursuing my own passion for music, I've learned there's no underestimating the attraction of and loyalty to, niche artists (I still love Matthew Sweet after all these years!?!?). Still, there's something confounding about the thought of tribute to a man once nothing more than a Bob Dylan wannabe who then turned to psychedelic ephemera of his era. There was, unfortunately, no mention of Leitch's song "There Is A Mountain" as source material for The Allman Brothers' mammoth instrumental improvisation, "Mountain Jam:" do the tributeers perform that? But I'm not really complainingbecause the existence of a functioning homage to Donovan has me holding out hope to a similar unit devoted to Buffalo Springfield---or maybe even MOBY GRAPE/!

Re: “Album Review: The Essex Green, 'Hardly Electronic'

Isn't that cover a Nathan Benn photo? Think I saw that at Shelburne Museum a couple years back.

Re: “Album Review: Sam., 'Collision'

I am incredibly proud of these young men! How did it even get better than the South Cove EP? But, it did!! 99 Neighbors! If you get a chance to see them live, don't hesitate!

Re: “In Manchester, Billsville House Concerts Create Community

Thanks for the great article. We're experiencing a local battle in which multiple people are laying claim to an important part of this article. "I WAS THE GUY WHO SAID HOLY F*CK" is a common refrain.

Re: “Lauren Costello is Burlington's Go-To Experimental Cellist

Fact check: Lauren also played the clarinet in middle school. I know because I was in that band and I was a very bad clarinet player, so I used to pretend to play and hope that Lauren's talent would carry our section so we wouldn't get yelled at.

Re: “Album Review: Bostjan Zupancic, 'Nothing Special'

Thanks so much for taking the time to check this one out! I really appreciate the kind words as well as the honesty. Some folks have told me that they really enjoyed the tracks you didn't like, and disliked the tracks that you received positively, so, I guess it's a case of pleasing some of the people some of the time, although, to be frank, although I started out trying to make something to please listeners, I ended up just making this album as my own emotional outlet.
And wow, was 2017 a year of lots of different emotions.
I hope the above doesn't sound disingenuous. I really do greatly appreciate the attention, and I wouldn't be playing microtonal metal music if I didn't want to hear people's negative comments.
"Interesting Enough" has not been received well by critics, in general, which, I suppose is unsurprising, given the way the content is likely to be received. Yet, my musician friends have told me that they felt the song was very relate-able. Just for the record, it has nothing to do with anyone who has ever written any reviews I've actually read.

Re: “Four More Albums From Formerly Local Artists

Had no idea Davidian left, but: good. He was born for New York City's jazz scene. A fearsome talent.
