  1. Chewy

    Chewy is an indie rock band from Lausanne, Switzerland whose sound, which falls somewhere in the realm of noisy, melodic pop-rock, has been compared to bands like Dinosaur Jr. or Superchunk. They released one E.P. and two full-length albums during their initial run: Chewy E.P., Whattookyousolong, and Somanydynamos, before splitting up in 2003. Singer songwriter Gregory Wicky then released two albums with his solo project Pendleton, and Mathieu Urfer & Sébastien Altevogt created their own new band, Sigurd. Chewy reformed in 2011, with the release of a new album, Bravado!, in August. The current line-up is: Gregory Wicky, Guillaume Conne, Christophe Roduit, Sandro Lisci. Their style has moved to a folkier sound, sometimes compared to the likes of Wilco or Neil Young.

  3. Tucker Christon:

  4. Kerry Coyne:

    We have watched the coffee category expand and adapt as Millennials converted to coffee drinkers, attracted by the smoother flavor and artisanal characteristics and third - and fourth-wave coffee, we knew our culinary team could deliver that same premium, hand-crafted sensory experience with the bellowed category hero of espresso in our best-in-class, fresh-baked bagel. The caffeine in the bagel is sourced from both espresso and coffee-cherry flour. Einstein’s exact recipe is proprietary but in addition to packing a caffeinated punch, the new bagel also has 13 grams of protein, derived from cocoa. We ’d all love a little extra energy in the morning, but do the enhancned bagels actually taste any good ? The product left tasters divided in a pretty even split. The product itself resembles a dark brown pumpernickel bagel and, upon the first few nibbles, tastes like a chewy plain bagel with a slightly sweet taste. After a few more bites, however, the bitterness from the espresso really kicks in.
