Album Of The Week: ORION By X Ambassadors

THE WHO: X Ambassadors THE WHAT: ORION (Interscope/KIDinaKORNER) THE WHY: Generally, I’m happy for the albums that land in my inbox daily but when an advance copy of X Ambassadors’ ORION presented itself, I was especially pleased. But be cool, I chastised myself: no matter how much I dig a band, there’s always the possibility that an output could suck. See […]

X Ambassadors Raise The Roof At The Grove

The Grove | Los Angeles, CA | August 1, 2018 | Photos: ZB Images |   I admit that the lede may be extremely misleading since – as a venue – the Grove in Los Angeles is an outdoor space sans a roof, but I’m guessing that you get the inference: On a balmy summer evening, the Ithaca, New York band X […]

The Who: X Ambassadors (Ithaca, NY) The What: Sometimes you just have to go there and that’s exactly what X Ambassadors’ frontman, Sam Harris, did when fleshing out the lyrics for the painful beauty of the song “Unsteady.” Along with Sam’s brother, Casey Harris, and longtime friends Noah Feldshuh and Adam Levin, “Unsteady” gives a wounded son’s voice to the very real […]
