The band has been on the road for a couple weeks now, and will finish up the tour on May 29th.
First Music Heard From The Groundbreaking Band’s First Studio Album In Eight Years. Album Set To Be Released August 2011 On Capitol Records.
Warchest is gorgeous. A weird catch-all, leaning heavily on live, plus demos, studio rarities, interview snippets, a disorganized symphony of destruction.
Beloved pop band Crowded House performed in front of 120,000 fans on the front steps of Sydney Opera House to close out their decade-long career.
Sean Lennon is an extremely talented songwriter in his own righ, regardless of his genes. Friendly Fire, if anything, only strengthens that fact.
None of these songs are good enough for the radio, but it’s easy to like all of them equally, which itself is reason enough to toss a red flag.
The guitars are “harder” this time out. Gone are the violin bits that, uh, kinda separated Yellowcard from every other chipper boy band.
One of their members posed nude while eight months pregnant. If you can get past that, they really are making good records.

Instead of taking the listener straight to the destination, Idlewild now take ’em around the ol’ Pecos Ruins, deserted gas stations, and a few graveyards.

Although Some Cities isn’t quite as euphorically all-conquering as their debut, Lost Souls, it’s still a slice of heaven sent from Manchester.
They’re quirky and jumpy and make yer butt wiggle, like, I dunno, Weezer or any other band who likes the Cars.
This two disc collection is the perfect introduction to her discography, and the only Kylie compilation to span her entire career thus far.
Finally! Ya know how Swedish bands have ruled for years, and we all wondered if there were any bad bands from Sweden? Capitol found one. Shout Out Louds. Whew!
Swedish garage pop, catchy without being formulaic. Fans of Soundtrack of Our Lives and the Hellacopters who wanna expand into well-written pop will dig it.
The F-Ups bring us fast, pumping pop punk about having to go to school, dealing with parents, and, of course, awkward sexual situations.
Stuck between the album that broke the band and the best album they would ever release. The forgotten middle child, and unjustly so.
Lunging with ferocity and desperation, Mustaine, Marty Friedman, and Nick Menza, layed to waste the aural battlefield with beautifully choreographed carnage.
Immersed in drug-enhanced nihilism, the boys purged demons that would scare the pants off of that other M band. This shit’s fucking ferocious, man.
Sounding slicker than ever, the songs were paired down to simpler arrangements, but Countdown to Extinction tread the line between accessibility and integrity.
Bass player from Hole and The Smashing Pumpkins. Players from Queens Of The Stone Age/A Perfect Circle. Chris Gross (Masters of Reality) prodes.
Silence Is Easy, the first album to feature Phil Spector production in 20 years, is Starsailor’s growth spurt, shooting them past most of their contemporaries.
