Review: Syracuse-based band The Vanderbuilts released "I Wish I Was a Saber-Toothed Tiger" Feb. 14 via their website and YouTube.

"I Wish I Was a Saber Tooth-Tiger" starts out slow and melodic, a guitar progression accompanied by a few plucked banjo notes. But much like its accompanying video, it quickly morphs into something imaginative and upbeat, fluid vocals layered over guitar riffs, piano and violin.

If it's any indication of what's to be expected on The Vanderbuilts' second album, we can expect something great.

The Brooklyn-based indie-rock band returns to Manhattan with some strings attached, courtesy of the classical music sextet yMusic.

The 120-year-old Carnegie Hall has an imposing presence that tends to hang over many artists who perform on the Ronald O. Perelman Stage. The decade-old experimental rock group Dirty Projectors was no exception, and stood in stark contrast to the aging venue during their show on Friday Jan. 11.

Our entertainment lead producer shares the music she's reflecting on during Thanksgiving break.

It's that time of year again, when we all think about how lucky we are to live in a first world country, have a cute golden retriever, and an Aunt Lucy who makes a killer pumpkin pie. I know I'm not alone when I say that the thing that I am most thankful for is music.

Here is a list of 10 bands that I am thankful for and the reasons why. It's my way of saying Happy Thanksgiving to you!

Review: Despite some lengthy tracks, the band's latest release is worth your time.
