Trail Of Dead

Everyone’s favorite Austin band …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead have been fairly quiet since the release of their 2006 album So Divided which wasn’t exactly loved by critics, or fans for that matter. The band has resurfaced recently with an in depth interview over on the Drowned in Sound website. The interview sees the band discussing a new album set to be released in early 2009 on their own label Richter Scale. The band also recently provided a live set for the Daytrotter website with 4 songs that you can download or stream. (Check out “Will You Smile Again for Me?”) Finally, if you’re not familiar with the band, below is a song called “Another Morning Stoner” off the band’s 2002 album (and best release to date) Source Tags & Codes.

The Pack A.D. @ Hole in the Wall

Remember when we posted about an awesome new song by The Pack A.D.?  Well, I just noticed that the band will be showcasing their talents at The Hole in the Wall here in Austin on Saturday night (8/2).  I’ve never seen this band live, but I imagine this to be a killer show.  Show time is set for 10pm with a cover of only $6.  Click the link above to hear “Making Gestures” off the band’s new album Funeral Mixtape to give yourself a preview of what’s to come.

Lollapalooza

If you’re like me and can’t really justify spending all that money to fly out to Chicago this weekend, you can catch most of Lollapalooza live on the Lollapalooza website. A lot of the mid-range acts from the festival will also be seen at our little ACL festival later in September. Maybe that will make your schedule planning a bit easier? I suggest tuning in first thing tomorrow at 12:15 for the Holy F*ck set. C3 also somehow landed Radiohead AND Rage Against the Machine as headliners but couldn’t get either for ACL. I suggest checking those two out. See the schedule for the event on the festival website.  You can also download an mp3 from each artist playing this weekend on a Lollapalooza mix created on Stereogum.

Chris Cornell & Timbaland

No, the title of this post is not a typo.  Chris Cornell is actually teaming up with Timbaland for his new solo album Scream due out sometime this September.  Even better, you can hear 5 new songs off the album over on the planet radio website.  I have always been a fan of Soundgarden and most of Audioslave’s material but I’m not sure I’ll be on board for this venture.  It’s…. interesting to say the least.  Let’s get some good comments on this one.
