If you paid attention to pop culture in the ‘90s, then it's quite likely you remember the post-grunge alternative band, Local H. The distinct, dirty bass line to the band's 1996 Top 10 hit, "Bound for the Floor" is still recognizable, reminding listeners to "keep it copacetic."
Like the rest of the decade, Local H never really went away.

Sharon Van Etten's buzz has been growing ever since she released her first full-length album, "Because I Was in Love", in 2009. The complex themes and emotional songwriting on the album kept her popping up on Pitchfork, an Internet music publication.
It's all about the music. Unlike the Grammy Awards' la-la land of red carpets and celebrity sidewalk stars, Grand Rapids' Jammies are the no-hype awards. That's what makes it one my favorite nights of the year.
Detroit still has a pulse! That's one of many factors that drew Shara Worden to the city. The mind behind My Brightest Diamond planted her roots in Detroit soil after living in New York, preceded by a year in Moscow.
