Jan 29 Night Terrors of 1927 Have Released ‘Everything Coming Up Roses’
This electro pop sound is quite different from Blake’s previous work with Rilo Kiley, but again if you are into the Killers and dance synth-pop… They named themselves after a sleep disorder that Blake’s girlfriend suffers

Jan 29 Singles Going Steady – New Song Releases Week of January 26th, 2015
This is a spectacularly terrible song to lead off last year’s disastrous divorce album Turn Blue, an album which effectively derailed their career. Slow, depressing, atmospheric and the very definition of a pointless downer, Dan has suffered for his art, now it’s our turn – D+

Jan 29 Grammys 2015: Pardners In Duets AGAIN
First the Grammys were cool, then they missed the bus on rock and roll and missed it again with the British invasion, and then, sometime in the 1990s, about the time Dylan received the lifetime achievement award, they got cool, up till the moment they realized duets would give them cachet and now…

Jan 29 US Top 10 Albums: 2-7-15
That’s a turbo charged top three pop album, indeed the top Five is very good indeed. In a reversal of 2014, 2015 is one of the best January’s in living memory. It is like everyone I s saying, hey we don’t buy your dog deads of January (no, froze days…). Which works for me, fine. A good month so far.

Jan 29 10 Songs: Thursday, January 29th, 2015
When I was discussing modern reggae with Hollie Cook earlier this month I completely forgot about Shaggy, though this terrific song does what it is so difficult: it takes reggae and adds it to r&b and the reggae, which is the milk to black coffee, changes its complexion and here it doesn’t manage to – A

Jan 28 The Beach Boys ” Live In Sacramento 1964″ and “Keep an Eye on Summer – The Beach Boys Sessions 1964″
For a Beach Boy fanatic, both albums might not add much to the story but what they add you’ll want to hear. And to hear Dennis, Carl and Brian performing together on stage can’t help but make you Smiley Smile.

Jan 28 Bloody Holly Meets The Great Huerta
Dig, We all love Buddy Holly and think he’s a gentleman with his gentle songs i.e. “Crying, Waiting Hoping”, “Oh Boy”, “Everyday”, “True Love Ways” but what if Chas. T. had a dark side? Who’s to say that he didn’t sit alone in the dark of his Lubbock garage and peruse the Billboard charts wishing harm upon his competition?

Jan 28 Watch Ariel Pink’s Poignant New Video For ‘Dayzed Inn Daydreams’
‘I died unknown/Stillborn, one morning/Letters on paper/They remain/At last my work is done/The picture’s gone/But the memory lingers on/Farewell/This one’s for you/I used to dream/Dream awake/Hide in the dark/Fade into gray/I used to pray/But now I scream/Lord help me/No more daydreams’

Jan 28 Courtney Love And Frances Bean Cobain Reunited At Sundance
Things didn’t seem to be doing so well not so long ago, first Love lost custody of her daughter in 2009 when Cobain was just 17, and she was sent to live with her grandmother, then, a few years ago Frances accused her mother to have killed her pet,

Jan 28 Punk, Tats, More Pink, In SoCal? Must be Musink 2015!!!
Our Alyson is trying to get over for at least a day and I don’t know what she plans but if I only had one day I could go, my eyes would be on Off! followed by Bad Religion. Though Rancid? Yelawolf? Blink 182? See what I mean?

5 songs from the excellent Blunderbuss but only 4 off Lazaretto, which suggest he realizes he dogged it proper, 8 White Stripes tracks, rwo from the Raconteurs (the best two as well) and nothing from Dead Weather

Jan 28 10 Songs: Wednesday, January 28th, 2015
Bad Place For A Good Time – Kate Tempest – This is how you rap to a metronome, like dancing between raindrops, and this is what you rap about not just “be like a tree” but more importantly “find something sacred in all of this silence”. That’s the sort of truth we can all use – A

Coachella Announces Its 2015 Lineup, I React!

They got Steely Dan instead of Sleater Kinney! (Isn’t it their year?) they got Azelia Banks (or is that Iggy Azalea, I always mix them up like everybody else) instead of Laura Marling, and they got David Guetta (again) instead of Lana del Rey… yes give more girl power to that thing!

Spend Your Next 4th Of July With The Foo Fighters?

Country Musical Festival June 2015 At Randall’s Island? Great Line Up And Pros Behind It

Still, for a three day show, from June 26th to June 28th, the $225 General Admission and $599 for VIP three day passes sound reasonable to me. The way to go is VIP if you can swing it, it is really a blast to swagger up to the lip of the stage.


BEDROCKtoberfest Curated By Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Nick Zinner, Saturday September 20th 2014

Bedrock-LA is like Disneyland for musicians, a giant 40,000 square feet music-service facility, located in the heart of Echo Park. And Bedrock has its fest, Bedrocktoberfest, which is a bit premature since we are still in September, but they probably wanted a good reason to sell good German beer

It’s Pasadena’s largest culinary celebration, a food festival with free music! 25 restaurants are participating with live cooking demos done by celebrity chefs from 11 am to 2 pm, while some LA and international indie bands are scheduled to play from 11 am to 3 pm… Not a bad way to have your Saturday brunch


How To Choose The Best Toilet At A Music Festival

At the end, these 15-minute of calculus (if you manage to watch the whole thing) will teach you that you simply have to scope out 37% of the toilets to have a good idea of the situation… after 37% you can start accepting the one that is the best so far.
