    June 1, 2012 Sometimes I worry that I listen to too much music. I worry that I’m jaded. Since I do this professionally, maybe I listen for things that I shouldn’t. Maybe I miss things that should be obvious. I’m plagued by doubt. And then just like that, I’m hit over the head with music that moves my soul.
    May 1, 2012 For the month of May, the Artists to Watch program is showcasing music from 2 very different artists: Bowtie Slim and September Mourning. This is an interesting juxtaposition because when taken together, they symbolize 2 very different routes to fame in the music industry.

    January 1, 2012 With the start of the new year, let’s pause for a moment and reflect on time-shifting nature of music. A record is both fixed in time and yet immortal. It records a particular feeling of the moment yet it is listened to from generation to generation...

    September 1, 2011 A lot can be learned from Locos Por Juana and from Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. Not only are these extraordinarily talented musicians and artists – but they are courageous pioneers that should be thought of as role models as well.
    August 1, 2011 If you don’t recognize the names Black Box Revelation or Theophilus London, then don’t worry — you’re in the majority. Both of these acts are relatively unknown outside of the music insider club but they won’t be for long. And you heard them both here first!
    July 1, 2011 When Ira Glass of NPR’s This American Life write a band’s bio – you know something big is afoot. Something like the OK Go releasing albums on their own label!

    April 1, 2011 Some music takes a few listens before its secrets unlock. And some music just digs right into you the first time that you hear it – like a long-lost old friend.
    March 1, 2011 March is a huge month for music. Bands from around the world gravitate to Austin, TX for SXSW. And this “unofficially” launches the touring season. Who’s going to pick up the buzz? Who’s going to get media attention? It’s all on the table. This is make or break it time.
    February 1, 2011 Wow! What a program we have this month. But don't take my word for it - here is what Robert Plant has to say about our featured band Low: “It's great music; it's always been in the house playing away beside Jerry Lee Lewis and Howlin' Wolf, you know.”

    July 1, 2010 The whole world is watching. All eyes are turned to South Africa to see who will take home the cup. But there is something deeper happening – borders and nationalism get transcended and the common threads of humanity emerge. The same thing happens with music. Like soccer – some things are universal. Just look at the Artists to Watch program this month.
    June 1, 2010 For this month, we are celebrating music with 2 legends – Trombone Shorty and Massive Attack. Trombone Shorty started playing 20 years ago, when he was 4, and Massive Attack’s first single came out right around that same time. And while times may have changed, the music just keeps getting better.
  • May 1, 2010 This month, the Ultimate Ears Artist to Watch program features a breakout band from Denmark, A pop star from the Netherlands and a student from the University of Louisville's Marching Band. The sounds of Oh No Ono are rich and made for headphones and they were recently named by WIRED Magazine one of the top 10 bands to see at SXSW. The pop tunes of Miss Montreal shine a light on global pop and the story of Patrick Henry Hughes is nothing short of inspirational.
    March 1, 2010 This month I can't help thinking about what it means to be a pop star. How does that come about really – and how does one find oneself going from relative obscurity to being an international sensation. Is that the inevitable goal or trajectory of all musicians?
    February 1, 2010 This month we feature music from the experimental sounds of Jihae along with the beautiful melodies of Blind Pilot. Jihae lives in New York while the members of Blind Pilot are from Portland and you can certainly hear the difference in the attitudes of the music. Jihae's sounds are as cool and untouchable as can be while Blind Pilots phrasing feels like they are singing just for you.

    January 1, 2010 We are pleased to feature new music from Cloud Cult and dan le sac Vs Scroobius Pip this New Year. And while their sounds are totally different, their message is not. Music is expression of feelings regardless the outcome. Music is a form of art - not a commercial formula.
    December 1, 2009 It has been quite a year. And we are finishing it off with a bang. This month, we are honored to feature new music from The Swell Season featuring Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova and from Bassekou Kouyate and his group Ngoni Ba. Both of these groups make such beautiful soulful music - real music from such a real place - that it is almost a disservice to try to limit their creativity by capturing it with words. So instead, I'd rather tell a quick story about The Frames - Glen's original band.
    November 5, 2009 "Great looks and great sound rarely intersect in the headphone world, but Ultimate Ears 700 manages to hit both with sleek chrome housings that you'd never guess could contain two tiny speakers per ear. With a more dynamic sound balance than former mini-twin-driver leader q-JAYS, only the $230 price may be a hurtle."
