Listen: Weezer – Brain Stew

Sunday, April 18th, 2010



Surprisingly, on Record Store Day, some bands actually released CD’s instead of vinyl including Cage The Elephant, Tegan & Sara, Nada Surf and Weezer.

In the case of the Weez, the boys decided to release some new versions of their classic tunes “Buddy Holly” and “Why Bother” along with the Raditude tracks “I’m Your Daddy” featuring saxophonist/outdated hairdo owner Kenny G and… Read More

Listen: Soundgarden – Hunted Down &- Nothing To Say

Sunday, April 18th, 2010



My first Record Store Day experience consisted of a few things: traveling to five different stores in two states, watching older folks from NJ fight over the last copy of Bruce Springsteen, chips with salsa and picking up some pretty great records.

The one in particular I made a mad dash for was Soundgarden’s Sub Pop EP which features their first single with the label, “Hunted Down”, and the b-side “Nothing… Read More

Listen: Blur – Fools Day

Sunday, April 18th, 2010



If you live in the U.K. and participated in Record Store Day, hopefully you picked up an EP that looks like that picture.

That’s because that 7″ was a limited edition of Blur’s first new single in seven years called “Fool’s Day” and, of course, it’s a great song.

Even though the EP only had 1,000 copies released exclusively in the U.K., the band realized that there are many North… Read More

Sunday, April 18th, 2010



Oh my goodness! He put the picture on the right this time! He’s changin’ shit up!

But seriously, folks, it’s time for more Record Store Day goodness. This time from the blues-rock duo from Akron, OH known as The Black Keys.

Now if you’re not aware because you’re musically retarded, Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney are releasing their brand spankin’ new album, Brothers, on May 11.… Read More

While we wait for news about Ozzfest to come out, Ozzy fans can still look forward to his new album, Scream, being released this summer.

The Prince of Darkness will release his 10th studio album on June 15th. There was a bit of an uproar about the album when it was announced that the original title would be Soul Sucka. Fans didn’t take too kindly to the name.

Listen: Scissor Sisters – Invisible Light

Tuesday, April 13th, 2010



U.K. dance-rock band Scissor Sisters are back with a new track to shake your ass to on the dance floor.

The band is releasing their third LP, Night Work, on June 28th. Down below, you can check out a sneak preview of the album with the song “Invisible Light”.

The song takes a disco beat and turns it dark. This would definitely be used in a warped remake of an 80’s movie. But what makes the song even… Read More

Last week, we reported on Paramore’s Hayley Williams appearing with Eminem on a track called “Airplanes (Part 2)” from rapper B.o.B’s album The Adventures Of Bobby Ray.

Well we got our hands on the song “Airplanes” from the album which just features Hayley. The song is definitely no club banger but it’s… Read More

Watch: Thom Yorke debuts new song

Tuesday, April 6th, 2010



Last night, Thom Yorke’s new band Atoms For Peace kicked off their mini-tour in New York City and I was lucky enough to go to the show.

It was an amazing performance! The band (Yorke, Nigel Godrich, Flea, Mauro Refosco, Joey Waronker) played all of Yorke’s solo album, The Eraser, from beginning to end. Songs like “Harrowdown Hill”, “The Clock” and album closer “Cymbal Rush”… Read More
