Matt Hopper & the Roman Candles, "Hot Mama," from Reverse Odyssey (Hatcher Pass)


Wayward songwriter Matt Hopper doesn't really have a homebase: "For me, it's touring and couch surfing," he says, adding that he hasn't "had an apartment or anything since 2004." That said, Hopper, a native Alaskan, rubs elbows with some notable Alaskan transplants—he's currently touring...   More

Here Comes Your Fan: Holiday Hodgepodge


Holidays are for list-making. That’s why this edition of HCYF is a little ramshackle. See, my brain’s been scrambled lately because I made the harrowing decision to listen to a full day of Christmas music—on soft-rock station 103.3 FM of all things—two Saturdays ago, and...   More

The Old Believers, "Til We Go Home," from Some Songs by the Old Believers (Fine/Romantic Recordings)
