Gran Ronde
INTERVIEW

1.) OK, someone puts a gun to your head and forces you to describe your band’s sound. Go. (Pow.) I’d probably just say shoot. Put me out of my misery. I don’t want to go back to my day job anyway….. but I guess that’s just a music fans...

Moth
INTERVIEW

So, maybe Moth is an acronym and we didn’t know it. We sincerely regret not asking what it means. (Maybe we should have a contest and ask users to guess. First place wins a six pack and bug repellent.) What we do know is  that when answering...

Wayne Coyne is the greatest guy ever.* Just keep that bit of information in mind, it will make sense later. If you happen to be an audiophile and not completely blind, you may notice that the Flaming Lips are on the cover of tons of music magazines lately as they...

The Bronx
INTERVIEW

The Bronx are the kind of band that can come off as pretty damn scary if you don’t know them. Singer Matt Caughthran’s vocals are gut-wrenching, spine-curdling wails that will shake the soul out of you. Their music is louder than loud, they can drink you...
