In case you were busy diggin’ on the new Grizzly Bear, Phoenix, and countless others, and maybe probably definitely standing in lines at 5 am to grab your tickets to After Last Season, here’s what you missed this week on Knox Road.

Monday: Susan Boyle returns and Brits love […]

Holy yes, a new WHY? album in the fall

It looks like WHY? frontman Yoni Wolf has just done a very informative interview with Pitchfork regarding his band’s newest album. Of the many things to learn:

The new record will be called Eskimo Snow, and will be released in the Fall. The record was recorded at the same time as 2007’s Alopecia, […]

Lisa Hannigan has awesome voice, Colbert Bump

You may already know Lisa Hannigan as the former female voice behind Damien Rice’s recorded output and live show. She’s been going solo now for a little while, and has one full-length under her belt, but I still feel like she’s been hovering under the radar for way too […]

After Last Season opening June 5 in four theaters!

It’s almost here, you guys. After literally months of anticipation, the movie event of 2009, After Last Season, will open June 5 in exactly FOUR theaters. DAMN… They did a surprisingly good job spreading the theaters around the country, but it would be nice to have, you know, more than four. It might […]

Notable Album Release: Deastro – Moondagger

Well friends, we’ve got a talented up-and-comer on our hands. Next week, June 2, Deastro (Randy Chabot, from Detroit) will be releasing his new album, Moondagger.

iLiKETRAiNS makes music, enjoys locomotives

The first lines in the first song of the first album by Leeds-based iLiKETRAiNS (yes, it’s stylized just like that), sung by frontman David Martin, go as such:

“How could I / Have led these men to their demise / And they just follow?”

It’s not a particularly optimistic sentiment, sure, and the […]

New Jay Reatard: “It Ain’t Gonna Save Me” [MP3]

Jay Reatard is finally releasing a legit LP this summer, and the first look at the album, “It Ain’t Gonna Save Me” is out. With all the heavier artistic stuff that’s been coming out (which I love), it’s nice to see some basic, fun songs for a change. The album, Watch Me Fall […]

Adorable YouTube Animals: The Pygmy Jerboa

It looks like all the owners of rare, adorable animals have discovered YouTube and decided to share them with the world. I’m not complaining. This is the best. The pygmy jerboa looks almost unreal. Like a hipper tweety bird with a long rat tail. Mark 2009 as the year of the […]

New Dead Weather: “Treat Me Like Your Mother” [MP3]

The Dead Weather have released another track from their highly anticipated debut album, Horehound. I don’t know you guys, I’m getting kind of bored with their stuff so far. All the songs just sort of run together… Oh, but I’ll still get the album, because why not. I like taking risks. Horehound is […]
