Rob Schwartzman of Rooney With An Update

Rooney is one of my favorite bands, but after listening to their most recent album, Eureka, to excess I put them on the shelf of a while. Recently two things have made me pop in the Rooney CD on the drive to class. 1) Album Art: their last album, Eureka, had some pretty impressive album … Continue reading

I’m With You: More Info on the RHCP New Album

Working title, Dr Johnny Skinz’s Disproportionately Rambunctious Polar Express Machine-head, is out, and a more marketable album title along with the track listing has been released. The Red Hot Chili Peppers new album will be entitled I’m With You, and will hit shelves on August 30th. The album’s first single, “The Adventures of Rain Dance … Continue reading

Fair To Midland – Featured Band

Yes, so perhaps “Band of the Week” has been discontinued, but at least we could still call this “Band of the Indefinite Time Period” if we wanted.  Anyway, I’ll cut to the chase.  I’m just now getting into a band I’ve known about for a while but only based on one song.

Red Hot Chili Peppers, Incubus, and a Ridiculous Survey

Well actually it’s really stupid, but I’m excited nonetheless. I’ve finally found a release date. Looks like sometime this August. Incubus also has a new album coming out on July 12th. … Continue reading

A Wave of Great New Music Is On The Way

Incubus just released a new single, “Adolescents.” I just gave it a first listen tonight, and I liked what I heard. It certainly has a great smooth sound with awesome guitar work. After just one listen the song seems to be about feeling overwhelmed, but I don’t want it to be that simple. Lyrics are … Continue reading

Band of the Week: Digital Summer

My apologies for being a bit late with the newest band of the week (or, more realistically, 7-12 day period).  I know there must be so many annoyed readers out there (….), but this week’s band is definitely worth the wait.  The featured group is a Phoenix-based outfit called Digital Summer.  This band first came … Continue reading
