“Percussion Gun” is the first single off White Rabbit’s anticipated sophomore release “It’s Frightening”. Cold War Kids could have used a solid track like this on Loyalty to Loyalty. percussion. guns. anyone?
“evil man make you kill me, evil man make me kill you. even though we’re only families apart”
remember when method man did that song with fred durst? can you believe limp bizkit played their first show with the original line up in 8 years… i think it was in latvia last week? can you believe i’m talking about limp bizkit? but in all seriousnessnesness zombie marvin gaye is gettin it on with zombie tammi terrell this very moment..
the mickey rourkes of ’09 it’s so time. “reserved for the cool kids” (except not really b/c the actual cool kids are sorta boring!) puts print up on a nice beat. we dig it. ups to tri state on production.
“Love You Better” is the solid first single off UK’s The Maccabee’s new sophomore release Wall Of Arms. “No Kind Words” was our early indicator, and “Love You Better” seals the deal. it’s always a great feeling to hear a new band and become genuinely excited hear the rest of the record.. sadly far and few between qualify nowadays. we’ll keep you posted…
Grandaddy’s front man goes solo. substance abuse, band breakups and record companies couldn’t hold Jason back from doing what all great musicians yearn for… yes moving to montana. “Yours Truly, The Commuter” proves yet again that sadness is an emotion that evokes some of the most inspiring art. “I may be limping, but I’m coming home”. brilliant lyrics and a great melody. grandaddy, please come home?
Pete Yorn & Scarlett Johansson Breakup. not that it’s true, because they were never together. it’s just the title of their duet album due September. damn it. feeling like a tmz gossip whores right now – so while we’re at it… how about this picture?
anyways, the duo’s first single “Relator” is a solid pop tune with a classy old fashioned rock ‘n’ roll swing to it. Pete Yorn pens yet another gem, and Scarlett’s sultry almost raspy alto adds the right tone. blahblah yeah she’s an actress who’s doing the music thing… but fuck it’s better than hearing Feist do another damn duet.
our vote, she sticks with lucky bastard pete, and stays away from tom waits and jeff buckley covers.. Ghost World = pizza party.
psychokinesis may you live forever. seattle’s Michael Benjamin Lerner and team released their self titled debut Telekinesis! via Merge in April. the album produced/engineered by Chris Walla was recorded one track to tape per day. the world needs more drummer fronted bands, this one’s churned out one of our favorite tracks of the summer..
