Ravens & Chimes Share New Single IRREPLACEABLE ARTIFACTSRavens & Chimes Share New Single IRREPLACEABLE ARTIFACTS
by BWW News Desk - Mar 6, 2019

Ravens & Chimes will release their new album The Empty House on March 22 via Better Looking Records (pre-order). This week they shared their new single “Irreplaceable Artifacts” with MXDWN and the track will be available on all digital streaming services this Friday. About the song MXDWN says, 'The song has a loping rhythm and eerie instrumentation that recall vintage heartland rock with a strong mix of modern indie rock influence. The song breaks down to the earnestly-sung vocals and a kick drum at the end, allowing Ravens & Chimes to strip the song down to its barest elements. It's a fitting ending to an elaborately arranged yet ultimately straightforward rock song.' (more...)

BWW Review: Musical Theatre West Mounts a Quintessential CAROUSEL
by Don Grigware - Mar 27, 2017

Carousel is Rodgers and Hammerstein's favorite musical. Produced on Broadway in 1945 with John Raitt and Jan Clayton in the roles of Billy Bigelow and Julie Jordan, it was R & H's second hit in a row, Oklahoma! being the first, with a string of others to follow. Any Rodgers & Hammerstein musical is among the very best there is in the annals of musical theatre history. The incredibly beautiful music alone is enough to keep an audience riveted, but Hammerstein's books were also laden with topical themes and much food for thought, as with Carousel that becomes a sort of parable for love, forgiveness and redemption. In their current beautifully mounted revival of Carousel, MTW may be assured of a gigantic hit. (more...)
