A new Oh No Oh My song has been posted up on the band’s myspace page. New song “Be a Star” solidifies the band as one of the best acts coming out of Austin right now. Check it out and tell us what you think.
Dave Monks of Canadian pop-punk outfit Tokyo Police Club recently did an acoustic set for the Interface on AOL. The solo performance features four tracks from the very surprising 2008 album Elephant Shell from Mr. Monks band. Watch the video and download the live songs for free.
The Dolphin music website has a list of the top 100 music oriented blogs in the US & A. You may see some fan favorites like stereogum, gorilla vs. bear and even local favorite Sonic Itch! Unfortunately for the world, Austin Town Hall didn’t make the list… Maybe next year. Wired as #1? Really!?!
Radiohead has announced that they will be webcasting the last show of their American tour in Santa Barbara. I’m sure most of you have seen Radiohead live (and if you haven’t here’s your chance), so this is a must see. Visit the official Radiohead site for more details.
Punk rockers, Alkaline Trio, recently did a live performance for The Interface on AOL featuring backing guitar/vocals from Tegan Quin of Tegan & Sara. You can download the 4 song set via mp3 or watch the live videos as well. I think Tegan should be a permanent addition to the band.
Everyone’s favorite indie princess Jenny Lewis, has a new song called “Acid Tongue” streaming on the NPR website. The song will appear on an album of the same name due out on Sep. 23rd of this year. The album is said to feature a wide array of talented folks like Zooey Deschanel, Elvis Costello, & Chris Robinson of The Black Crowes just to name a few. Enjoy.
On the heels of re-releasing a bunch of old records and reuniting for a one-off show last December, it sounds like the Zep might be heading back into the studio for a 10th album. Apparantley Page, Jones and John Bonham’s son Jason have been working on new material (sans Robert Plant). Could there really be a new record on the horizon, or are these just glorified jam sessions? You decide.
Starting today, you can download a digital copy of Bloc Party’s latest effort Intimacy for only $10 from the band’s website.
