Yes ladies and gentlemen, we made it through ACL and we are working on our write-ups, interviews, etc. We will start giving you guys the goods tomorrow and we promise it will be worth your while. The exhaustion, dust, and late nights have taken their toll, but we have some of the best staffers around and the content should be great!
Following the tradition of scheduling a “who’s who” of the last 50 years of pop music, Bruce Springsteen will be following up The Stones, U2, Sir Paul, Prince and Tom Petty to play Super Bowl XLII. I think everyone saw this one coming. Let’s just hope that Tony Romo and The Blue Stars will be showcased as the headlining act.
We couldn’t think of a better way to usher in the weekend or celebrate our love for graphs than with this great list of the 11 best rap graphs. Enjoy.
The Streets are streaming 7 new songs from their latest effort Everything is Borrowed. The album isn’t out till next week, so have a listen and try before you buy. Hip-hop fans, what do you think?
We here at Austin Town Hall love The Rosebuds, and we’ve talked about a few tracks off their newest album, Life Like, in a previous post. Now that the release of said album is only a few months away, I’ve got a tip for you that should get you salivating for more from this band. The cool cats over at Merge Records are now streaming the entire album in an easy to use pop-out format. Head over there now for your own listening pleasure.
Life Like comes out via Merge Records on October 7th.
A few weeks ago we told you about a new song by Jenny Lewis that you could stream for free. Now you can stream Jenny’s entire new album “Acid Tongue” on her myspace page. Feel free to be the first to give us your thoughts.
You may be sick of all the new dance music making a resurgence, but you’ve gotta admit that French duo Justice are at least doing it right. The Frenchman continue to do it right with a new 4 part project entitled Planisphere which can be streamed on the Justice myspace page. It’s pretty rad.
