Foo Fighters Will Release New Album In November

By Will Oliver, June 3rd 2014

Foo Fighters

Foo Fighters have announced that their new album will be released this November. It’s currently untitled, but will be released via Roswell/RCA. It was recorded in eight different cities (New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Austin, Washington, D.C., Nashville, New Orleans, and Seattle).

That aspect ties into the band’s HBO series: Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways, which documents the recording of the album through the various cities.  The album, the bands eighth, is their most ambitious yet; with at least one song from the album having been recorded in each of the cities, with local legends of the city sitting in on the sessions. Dave Grohl would hold off from putting down words to the songs until the final day of each session, in order to write lyrics inspired by the experiences.

HBO has released a teaser for the series, which features a sample of a new song that we can only assume is from the album. Find that below. Read the rest of this entry »

Merchandise - After The End

Merchandise are back and will release a new album titled After The End on August 26 via 4AD.

They recorded and produced the album themselves (they got some mixing help from Gareth Jones) over a six-month period at the house they shared together in Tampa, just like they did with their previous albums. The band has expanded from the trio of Carson Cox, David Vassalotti, and Patrick Brady, to a 5-piece, adding Chris Horn and Elsner Nino.

Clearly this is a new chapter for them, and you can hear this very clearly in the album’s first single “Little Killer.” The band heads in a more clean-cut pop direction that really hits its stride and runs with it. That guitar riff is simply irresistible. Throw in those trusty vocals from Carson Cox and we got a real winner on our hands.

Enjoy “Little Killer” and check out some new tour dates below.

Anand Wilder (of Yeasayer) – Wedding Day

By Will Oliver, May 29th 2014

Anand Wilder and Maxwell Kardon

Break Line is the passion project Yeasayer’s Anand Wilder. He’s been working on the project along with Maxwell Kardon since 2009, and now the time has finally come for the album to be released.

The project looks back to rock concept albums of the early 70′s, “following the classic arc of lost love, betrayal, and pride.” The album is described with the following description:

Inspired by this golden age of musical theatre and an old folk song taught in Quaker schools in the 50s, they created their own version of a classic story of betrayal, pride and lost love.

The album includes many collaborations, from fellow Yeasayer bandmates, to members of bands such as Vampire Weekend, Man Man, Dirty Projectors, Suckers, MGMT, and Dragons Of Zynth.

Break Line The Musical is the name of the album that they’re releasing, and will be released July 15 via Secretly Canadian. You can get a taste of the album with the lovely album cut “Wedding Day” which is available to stream below.

Wish I Was Here Poster

The Shins and Zach Braff go way back. His use of “New Slang” and “Caring Is Creepy” in his directorial debut Garden State helped launch their popularity, changing their career forever (or really James Mercer nowadays).

So it’s no surprise that they’ve reunited again for Wish I Was Here, Braff’s new film (and first since Garden State).

The film’s latest trailer features a brand new song from The Shins. It’s presumably set to appear on the film’s soundtrack, and it sound amazing from what we can tell.

You can check out the trailer right now over at Monday Morning Matinee.
