So apparently, Modest Mouse decided to add some old guy to the band, and everyone made a big deal of it. Then they released a record on Tuesday, and everybody made a real big deal of it, rocketing We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank to #2 on Amazon and #1 on iTunes. So now they are headed out on tour. What with Isaac's new penchant for self-mutilation, you might want to catch them sooner rather than later. Modest...

Here's another reason to support your local indie shops: The Hold Steady, those guys who legally can't be mentioned without being called "the greatest bar band in the world," have decided to do everyone a freaking favor and release a limited-edition EP, cleverly titled Live at Fingerprints. How cleverly titled? Well not only is it actually a live recording, but it was actually recorded at Fingerprints!! And not only was it recorded at an indie record store...

Every girl I know loves The Presets. That may be a bit of an exaggeration, but last week in Austin, they seemed to be on everyone's "bands I gotta see" list. For those of you who didn't make it out to SXSW, you are in luck. Not only are The Presets on an East Coast swing until April 1st, but you avoided the collective hangover that was Central Texas. Check the dates: Friday March 23 – Touch Supper Club, ClevelandSaturday...

The past year has been quite interesting for The Sword. Ever since the release of their debut Age of Winters last year, they’ve toured the world, had a heavily rotated video on MTV, got a song on Guitar Hero II, became the poster boys for a short-lived genre known as Hipster Metal, then shed that same brand a few months later when said debut was listed #4 on StonerRock.com’s top 26 of 2006 poll, just behind Mastodon and The Melvins....

In 1957 the Ruskies launched Sputnik 1 into the stratosphere and America said "Dammit, why didn't we do that first?" And thus, the space race was on. You can't always be the only kid on the block to get that shiny new toy, and in the Internet world, that's doubly true. Chances are somebody's done it—whatever it is—before, so you might as well acknowledge it and move forward. That's the idea behind the Cosmonaut Dispatches. Here you'll find everything that...

I work in a shopping mall. A shopping mall that has 2 CD stores, and 3 department stores which have CD sections in it. With a new Nine Inch Nails CD coming out soon, I thought I would go and see what CDs or DVDs were in the shops and grab something I didn’t already have. You know, whet my appetite. So on my hour lunch break I head in to CD shop #1, hmm…there seems to be a NIN...

Platinum hair, call and response vocals and mosaics aren’t always enough to make a classic UK. post-punk revival successful. You have to get a gnarly D.I.Y. haircut first. “Our tour manager’s girlfriend is going to be cutting my hair in the van after the interview,” says Antonia Sellbach, leading lady of Love of Diagrams. The Melbourne trio, comprised of Sellbach (bass/vocals) Luke Horton (guitar/vocals) and Monika Fikerle (drums), was in Los Angeles for the first of their ten shows in...
