    The Dresden Dolls’ Amanda Palmer delivers a mesmerizing rare solo performance to her faithful Orlando flock… even Neil Gaiman showed up!

  • Michael Rother

    Michael Rother

    Fans of cutting-edge electronic music most likely have Michael Rother to thank. Rother was one of the prime movers in a German music scene, dubbed krautrock, that still sets the standard for exciting, weird, and groovy music. Ink 19 had the pleasure of chatting with Rother, who seems as comfortable with creating new music as he is with being a careful archivist of the music and legacy of his previous bands.

    Q-Tip

    On the historic day that America elects its first African-American president, an eloquent messenger for “change,” Q-Tip releases The Renaissance. Coincidence?

  • Low Vs. Diamond

    Low Vs. Diamond

    It takes some serious skills to make moody, indie rock sound new and fresh, but Low Vs. Diamond does just that. Jen Cray was wooed by their swagger and elegance at a recent Orlando date.

  • Kites

    Kites

    With material co-credited to Paul McCartney, Jean-Philip Grobler‘s Kites has caught the attention of music industry luminaries. However, he’s intent to make music his way, in his own time, resulting in his current EP You and I in the Kaleidoscope. Three years to make an EP? Grobler talks about that misconception, and promises his next shot of arena rock won’t take so long, but warns it might include a full orchestra in St. Paul’s Cathedral. S D Green tries to harmonize with the former South African choirboy.
