QC TEXT COLLECTION VOL. 2

by rozer So it’s been a ridiculously long time since our last QC Text Collection, but hey, you can’t force these things. The whole point is to be sporadic and genuine right? Check out the newest batch after the jump and remember to drop your own gems in the comments. A TO G BY BLACKALICIOUS:

NORTHERN LIGHTS

by eliza czander We got another one coming out of Canada, guys. Newcomer, Lights, is a 21 year-old Canadian songwriter who’s beginning to make her mark here in the States. Just a few months ago, she signed with Warner Brothers, and has just recently started her tour across the US. With a delicate but captivating [...]

THE DUNES

by cheryl santa maria I like discovering new bands and when I come across one that is absolutely smashing, I like to share my discovery with others. There’s only one problem: I always seem to be half an hour behind the (music) world. When I try to discuss “new” bands with music enthusiasts, they tend [...]

QC INTERVIEW: ROOTS OF CREATION

by bob panza Last week I spoke with Brett Wilson after he wrapped up a national tour that took him and his band, Roots of Creation, from the Atlantic to the Pacific and back again; landing at their stomping ground of New Hampshire on Halloween for their largest headlining show to date.

This often happens when Dylan becomes the main orator of my laptop speakers and ipod headphones. It is something like an unexpected addiction, and [...]

HELP DECIDE IF (OR HOW MUCH) SHWAYZE SUCKS

by emily smith Does Shwayze suck? Yes No View Results … Catchy simple songs make money. Should we blame Clear Channel? Or is this phenomenon caused by an increasing cultural need for immediate gratification? I am guilty; if a song takes more than two seconds to sound pleasing I’ll change it. As a result, the [...]

MORE MUSIC WE DIDN’T POST ON VOL. 4

QC MIXTAPE VOL. 21 (NOV 9 – 15)

by bmac So the mixtape is late by two days. I’d like to tell you it’s because we were consumed by the G-20 summit on the global economic crisis or that we spent today planting trees and giving kit kat bars to strangers. But that’d by lying. And eventhough the mixtape is late because one [...]
