Interpol are back with one of their best albums yet and, even better, they seem to be having a REALLY good time playing it.
They were all smiles backstage last night after they debuted half of their new album — and some fan favorites –for a worldwide audience in a webcast presented by KCRW and NPR Music.
They ruled the Main Stage at LA’s FYF Fest …

ty_promo_5_by_denee_petracek

In the short six or so years Ty Segall has been releasing music under his own name (not to mention the couple of years previous in the band Epsilons), he has been prolific enough to establish himself as a brand name.
And not merely a brand denoting a specific type of music, as his records all flirt around subtle but distinct garage rock varieties, from …

Audego: Artist You Should Know

Posted July 28, 2014 by | 0 Comments | 2,456 views]
audego

About a year ago, I discovered a future soul duo based in Melbourne called Audego.
I was immediately seduced by Carolyn’s airy, ethereal vocals & the beat heavy, progressive production courtesy of Pasobionic.
Audego’s music is nostalgic yet contemporary.
The duo clearly has taken cues from early 90′s R&B from the likes of Aaliyah and En Vogue and infused those styles with modern sounds as you would …

Eels Cover Elvis’ “Can’t Help Falling In Love”

Eels by Larry Hirshowitz

Eels main man Mark Oliver Everett mostly lives in a muted space.
While he can come across as solemn if you’re being generous, he does have a sharp wit and the sort of self-deprecating humor that makes you think he’s doing it for the laughs.
Either way you slice it, he’s definitely not the kind of guy to wear salmon colored J.Crews, half rolled up the …

Landlady-2-phSashaArutyunova-300

Landlady is the latest venture from Adam Schatz, who has been involved in so many musical projects it makes the head spin (member of Man Man, co-producer of Winter Jazzfest, session saxophonist for Vampire Weekend, etc.)
But as Landlady, he and his four Brooklyn bandmates churn out quirky rock tunes that satisfy one of my basic tenants of Great Songs: they rarely end up in …
