Yes, I understand that the above title is somewhat odd. A song over forty years old leaking in this day and age of the interwebs is almost a farce, given how common it is to witness entire records appearing online in crude mp3 matter months before being released. What is more odd is that someone [...]
Changing Horses, Ben Kweller’s newly released fourth album has been described by the lovable manchild as his “country” record, which is both unsurprising and completely logical seeing as though seven out of the nine times I’ve seen him live he’s donned a western shirt (that’s approximately 77.8% plaid). This might just be the “I finally [...]
Is it a boy? Is it a man? No! It’s Ben Kweller, the perpetually youthful man-child wonder. While it seems like only yesterday Kweller released his last LP (cleverly titled Ben Kweller), Stereogum reported today that LP number four is already on the way and shall be known as Changing Horses. To top it all [...]
The beloved Scottish quartet have been a quiet for some time and so it was with much anticipation that I clicked the MP3 that longtime reader, first time caller Xenex had emailed me - “Ulysses” - the first single from Franz Ferdinand’s upcoming LP number three, Tonight: Franz Ferdinand.
My initial thoughts had me thinking [...]
Ry-ry dropped into the BBC this week in ye olde UK, in support of his latest Cardinals endorsed LP, Cardinology. Naturally, this meant performing some of that rock and roll music for the listeners of the kingdom who was once the globe’s super power. Somehow, maybe because he’s American, Ry-ry dropped the quintessential dad rock [...]
The days are long, and the nights are longer in the world of a self-proclaimed Weezer fanboy. Sometimes, the online Weezer community has to go for whole minutes without a single piece of information being posted online. MINUTES I TELL YOU.
Somehow I was away from my laptop for a period longer than five minutes today, [...]
I don’t know know about you guys, but whenever I think about Jesse Hughes and Josh Homme’s Eagles of Death Metal, I think two things: dirty thoughts, and sexy thoughts. This is because I am generally doing something either both dirty and/or sexy whilst thinking about/listening to them.
Well, enough about me. The rickrollin’ duo are [...]
Things have been pretty quiet around here gang *cue rolling tumbleweed* and I’ll tell you all why: end of semester essays. I promise that this post will not be in any way a bitch-fest about tertiary institutes and their requirements and such, I just wanted to make my absence clear to you all. In short, [...]
If you’re like me and spend most evenings rolling in piles of your own money, then you’re going to love this!
More than three years after the release of their double album, Blinking Lights and Other Revelations, Eels are set to release it again. This time, as a super deluxe four-disc vinyl box set. As well [...]
I’m kind of confused as to whether the sleeve art for Luke Steele’s and Nick Littlemore’s upcoming musical excursion, Empire of the Sun, is the worst album cover of all time or the greatest ever one sheet for the best Henson’s Creature Workshop/Amblin produced 80s fantasy film never made? Wait, it’s definitely the latter.
Look out [...]
Well it’s been over half a year since we’ve posted one of our “TGI Covers” and what better way to celebrate its triumphant return than with a good ‘ol fashioned Bob Dylan cover? The cover in question is “I Shall Be Released” and was performed just the other day in Spokane, WA by none other [...]
