New from The National - Demons

Check out this very awesome new track from the National, from their forthcoming album titled "The Trouble Will Find Me", out May 20 on 4AD.  

New tune from Deerhunter - Monomania!

So the album is out May 7 on 4AD, and here is the first tune for you to enjoy. Earlier today we caught their performance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon which was actually pretty strange.  Apparently Bradford Cox debuted his new alter ego "Connie Lungpin".  We will post that later.  For now, enjoy the tune.

Great White Buffalo present their self titled EP

LA quartet Great White Buffalo have a very nice sounding grungy sort of indie rock vibe, that you can check out NOW on their brand new pay what you can self-titled ep!  Sounds great right!  Wait til you hear it!


Listen to two songs from Kinski's forthcoming Cosy Moments LP!

Kinski is a really great band who hasn't released an album in a while.  But now, they are out of the studio and ready to drop Cosy Moments on us on April 2nd and we couldn't be more pumped.  Listen to Last Day on Earth and Conflict Free Diamonds here!

Classic of the day: Mad Season - River of Deceit (plus mini doc!)

We all love supergroups.  Who doesn't? Anyways, this one was formed in 1994, with Pearl Jam's Mike McCready on guitar, Screaming Trees' Barrett Martin on drums and blues bass master John Baker Saunders (on bass, of course).  The three began to rehearse, and after writing a couple of tracks including this one, they brought in Alice in Chains' frontman Layne Staley.

River of Deceit was released in 1995, the first single from their only studio album Above.  They say much of River of Deceit was inspired by Khalil Gibran's famous book The Prophet, which Staley was reading during the recording of Above.  It was also partly inspired by his fight with drug addiction that unfortunately led to his death in 2002.  

The song was received well, and still connects with us quite a bit.  We loved it when it first came out and still do, and hope you do too.  Listen to it here and treat yourself to a 5 minute documentary on Mad Season that is very very cool.
