By Mel Minter

James Brown made his mark as the Godfather of Funk, but he apparently led a second and secret life as a composer of contemporary chamber music, specializing in brief, jazz-inflected pieces for saxophone quartets.

Chad VanGaalen • indie rock, folk, electronica

By August March

From Rush and April Wine to Common Grackle and NoMoreShapes, those dang northerners are rocking the hell out, cold weather be damned … Anyway, check out the latest iteration of this sub-arctic phenomenon when post-darkwave, folky freaky, soulful psych-singer Chad VanGaalen
