Late last summer I told you guys about The Gaslight Anthem‘s white hot album The ’59 Sound, which graced dozens of critics’ “Best of 2008″ lists and satisfied true blue punk rock fans everywhere with its solid rock jams and gooey hooks. I’m hard pressed to find a single media outlet that’s given The ’59 [...]

MUTEK, one of the finest electronica events I’ve attended, has taken place for the past nine years in Montreal and this year’s festival will be happening on May 27-31. It’s the festival’s 10th edition and organizers have lots of surprises up their sleeve for this special anniversary – earlier today they released the names of [...]

Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, the upcoming fourth studio album from Versaille, France’s Phoenix, surfaced early last night, nearly three months before its May 26 release date. While everybody’s busy orgasming over 1901, which the band released for free download via their website at the end of February, I’ve already replaced it with what’ll be the album’s [...]

Remember Peter, Bjorn And John? They had massive traction for nearly TWO YEARS with their peskingly catchy single Young Folks (which I would have enjoyed if not for the whistling – if you know me at all you know I loathe whistling, and the only whistling song I can tolerate is Guns ‘N Roses’ Patience), [...]
