Whitley

This Aussie gentleman, Whitley, has been getting a lot of buzz lately so we thought it’d be a good time to jump on the hype machine.  Some of you may know that he put out an album about a year ago in Australia called The Submarines that received a ton of critical acclaim.  Now we the people of the United States will finally get our hands on this album September 30th.  Catch a preview of the album with “A Shot to the Stars” below.

French Kicks Cover Lindsey Buckingham

It’s one thing to cover the Ramones, but entirely different to cover the Shirelles and Lindsey Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac, but that is just what the French Kicks are doing.  Fresh off their release of Swimming, their newest album from Vagrant Records, the band is releasing a covers EP.  Here is their cover of “Trouble” by Lindsey Buckingham.
