SWANS announce new live cd/dvd NOT HERE/NOT NOW

Oh, thank the good lord, SWANS (once more, still) are not dead. In fact, by all accounts, the band is proving as frighteningly prolific as they were back in their first twenty years of…heyday? That term seems inappropriate. Anyway, we just got word that the band is working on assembling...

Fuck Buttons – Slow Focus

Mid Summer is when the word “fuck” is volleyed around the music media and different publications decide how to best approach it. F*ck Buttons? Ha! We, as a culture, are so lame. Alright, Fuck Buttons. Lets do this. To be very honest, I have never heard a full Fuck Buttons...

Bleached – Ride Your Heart

Formerly of L.A. punk band Mika Miko, Jessica and Jennifer Clavin now make up the beating heart of Bleached; a surf-punk garage-rock outfit whose calling cards are lovelorn lyrics, three-chord riffs and 60s vocal harmonies.

Watch: Dads New Anti-Video for “Invisible Blouse”

Oh, Dads. Whatever am I going to do with you? I mean, I love your fuzz crunch “nothing for no one” sound and appreciate how it’s warped and rounded from the dumb luck crazers of your Kartoga Works 7″ through to Brown on Brown and it sure is keen of...

Queens of the Stone Age – …Like Clockwork

Queens of the Stone Age – …Like Clockwork

To be honest, I haven’t listened to Queens of The Stone Age since 2002’s Songs For The Deaf. There’s no clear reason for this, considering their first three albums easily catapulted them to my list of favorite bands. Since not hearing their last two albums, I can’t say with any...
