Not only does the lead singer of the High Strung have an 2 solo records out including an epic double solo album out with 36 tracks on it  :o  http://joshmalerman.bandcamp.com/

he also has a book, "Bird Box", he's written that's set to be published and been already been optioned as a movie. 

Talk about a renaissance man, next thing you know he'll be painting as well...

I wonder what the dynamic in a band is when one of members suddenly has a six figure deal for a movie/book deal.

Can anyone explain CHVRCHES?  I'm finding it pretty un-listenable too...

Mumford and Sons vs The Lumineers - Funny or Die weighs in

http://www.funnyordie.com/articles/321558bb86/mumford-sons-vs-the-lumineers-which-is-the-better-band?playlist=featured_pictures_and_words

you are like a broken record. we get it you don't like music that came out in the last 20 years.  You don't have to posting the same thing over and over again.  it is boring.

on the one hand its exciting that Marr is going to be performing Smiths/Electronic songs he co-wrote...seems only fair too


on the other hand hearing anyone other than Bernard Sumner and Morrissey singing these songs seems so wrong....but I probably feel like that because those are two of my favorite voices


from the youtube clips i saw it seemed quite good but did have a bit of a karaoke feel...

and lets face it. makes me more likely to attend.

They just played the Golden West Cafe.. I don't think is ever too early in your career to play there.  I heard from someone who went to the show that they were awful live.  It probably comes down to not practicing enough before touring.

Foxygen have been around a lot longer than Of Monsters and Men and when I saw them live last year they put on probably  one of the ten best shows I have seen in my life.

If we are talking suck ass bands again let's not forget...

U2
Rush
Dave Mathews
Boston (for you old fucks)
Journey (for you semi-old fucks)

I love Boston's first and like their second. The funny thing about Boston's first is that it was more indie than most well-known indie bands. Most of it was played by Tom Scholz himself and recorded on 12-track in his own basement and on his own dime. It wasn't "corporate" rock; the sound he invented was copied by everyone else and that became corporate rock.

Journey is actually older than Boston and started as a jazz-rock spinoff of Santana. They went nowhere, so they hired a candyass singer and invented Glee.

I could easily nit pick and tear this article to death but I won't bother.

Shoegaze: the genre that could not be killed
Formerly a UK music press term of abuse for hapless Thames Valley indie types who hid behind their fringes, now everyone's glad to be 'gaze


-Edit-
Just got a look at the Spotify list with the article and it looks amazingly like what I've been airing on Air Atlantic Underground Radio for all these years.  8)
