Here’s what the Alive and The Other Paper are covering musically this week …

  • Local Music: King Vada (by Chris Deville, Columbus Alive) - “‘2013, I’m about to keep hitting people in the face,’ King Vada said during an interview outside Short North boutique Milk Bar, pausing occasionally to greet people who had piled inside to hear his new Preludes to a Murder EP.”
  • Sensory Overload: Sleep Fleet (by Chris Deville, Columbus Alive) - “Power-pop, pop-punk, emo, alt-rock revival — whatever you want to call what Sleep Fleet does, their peers in the realm of rambunctious, melodious music are not known for their thoughtful deployment of dissonance.”
  • Proof that there’s life left in Americana music (by Joel Oliphint, The Other Paper) - “Americana. John Fullbright may not like it, but it’s probably the best catch-all term for his rootsy music. In fact, From the Ground Up was just nominated for a Grammy in the Americana category alongside Mumford & Sons, the Avett Brothers, Bonnie Raitt and the Lumineers. In a just world, Fullbright would win.”
  • MAJOR MINOR: Belated holiday gift for WCBE (by John Petric, The Other Paper) - “I’ve been mulling over what I can give our local NPR station, WCBE, in recognition of its stupendous music programming.Money’s out of the question — I haven’t paid my water bill for last year yet. What then, pray tell?”
