MP3: New Interpol "Lights"

April 28th, 2010 · Comments Off on MP3: New Interpol "Lights"

кухни Activity in the land of Interpol. The band’s website Interpolnyc.com has simply stated “2010” for a few months with no real clue as to what or when something might happen. An email went out to fans this evening with a link to the home page, which greets you with daunting music and a new, […]

Weekend in Rome with Etienne Daho

April 18th, 2010 · Comments Off on Weekend in Rome with Etienne Daho

I never knew that Saint Etienne’s “He’s on the Phone” was a cover. I am a horrible fan.

Sleater-Kinney’s Corinne Tucker prepares debut solo record with members of Unwound, Golden Bears

April 9th, 2010 · Comments Off on Sleater-Kinney’s Corinne Tucker prepares debut solo record with members of Unwound, Golden Bears

Corinne Tucker, my favorite voice from Sleater-Kinney, is set to release her solo debut this October, which she has unfortunately described as “a middle-aged mom record.” Yikes. Not a good way to get the momentum going. Conversely, she has employed Unwound’s Sara Lund on drums, which definitely perks my ears back up. Fleshing out the […]

The Wedding Present’s David Gedge is the Guest Editor over at Magnet Magazine to coincide with the launch of the band’s latest tour, which celebrates the 20th anniversary of its legendary Bizarro album. I made the trek to Atlanta this past Wednesday night to see the album performed in its entirety. Gedge always makes a […]

Jawbreaker’s Unfun reissue out this week, reunion rumors + stream “Gutless” Mp3

April 9th, 2010 · Comments Off on Jawbreaker’s Unfun reissue out this week, reunion rumors + stream “Gutless” Mp3

I’ve been on a Jawbreaker kick for the past week or so and just last night I stumbled on the notes to “Outpatient” (off 1994’s 24-Hour Revenge Therapy) while messing around on the bass. So, I was pretty excited to come across this current interview at Rolling Stone with Blake Schwarzenbach (guitars/vocals) and Adam Pfahler […]

Rumor Mill: Blur to release new single for Record Store Day

April 9th, 2010 · Comments Off on Rumor Mill: Blur to release new single for Record Store Day

My wallet is certainly happy that I have a conflict with attending Record Store Day on April 17th, but now that a new Blur single might be in the mix I could be in trouble. Granted, the source is The Sun, so take this with the appropriate amount of salt, but Blur has reportedly regrouped […]

Cursive covers Starship, makes me yearn for Starship

April 7th, 2010 · Comments Off on Cursive covers Starship, makes me yearn for Starship

Cursive covers Starship In the latest edition of The A.V. Club’s Undercover series, Cursive attempts Starship’s “We Built This City” and belly flops the fuck out of it. Wow. I’m a pretty big Cursive fan, and this is just painful to listen to, much less watch. I loathe the original, but, my God, I was […]

VIDEO: Band of Horses “Compliments”

April 2nd, 2010 · 1 Comment

“Compliments” is the first single off Band of Horses’ third long-player, Infinite Arms, which is due out May 18th via Fat Possum/Brown/Columbia. The music is thicker and busier than anything they’ve done previously. Bridwell’s vocals have always been double-tracked and drowning in reverb, but now he’s harmonizing with himself on multiple levels, which is interesting, […]

The Joy Formidable announce brief US tour

April 2nd, 2010 · 1 Comment

Every time I hear this song on Sirius XMU, I kick myself for not having bought the album yet, especially since I’ve known about it for a year. This Welsh trio plays a tense strain of shoegaze-inflected indie rock led by Ritzy Bryan’s piercing vocals. They’re bringing the show stateside at the end of the […]

The Cure to release deluxe 3-Disc Disintegration set

April 2nd, 2010 · 4 Comments

One of my favorite albums of all time is getting the deluxe treatment, so, in spite of my distaste for anything The Cure has done in, oh, about twenty years, I’m actually looking forward to this. The Cure’s 1989 masterpiece, Disintegration, will be released as a three-disc set, remastered and sequenced by Robert Smith himself. […]

REVIEW: SLED, S/T, Lunchbox

April 2nd, 2010 · Comments Off on REVIEW: SLED, S/T, Lunchbox

It’s true that most bands rock less as they age. The few that go against the grain remain rare exceptions. Specifically, hardcore bands tend to blow up long before they can go limp. Such was the case with Assfactor 4. The legendary South Carolina quartet called it quits at the height of its powers in […]
