Slowdive Present New Video

It’s unheard of for a band to break up and then twenty-two years after their last album, record a follow up that is worthy of the long wait in between. Reading UK based Slowdive did just that this year when they released their long overdue fourth, self-titled album. Now with the band preparing to launch their North American tour, starting in Vancouver, they have also graced us with a Grant Singer directed video for the single, “Don’t Know Why”.

Roger Waters' Radio K.A.O.S.: A Compelling Misfire

Roger Waters can’t seem to roll out of bed without it becoming a concept album. The former Pink Floyd frontman certainly has a knack for transforming his pie in the sky fantasies into cold, hard slabs of rock reality designed to challenge his audience, even when the music itself leaves something to be desired.

The Coathangers Share New Video for "Drifter"

The Atlanta, Georgia music scene seems to foster the type of bands that have the ability to blend a punk rock and garage aesthetic with a southern twang. Cow punk this is not, but something more real, more exciting, something that has the potential to eclipse genre with each album these acts produce. No one represents this more than The Coathangers. The band has been putting out records for nearly a decade now, all the while spending that much time on the road honing their skills.

Hear Tough Age's "Picquant Frieze"

It’s been a couple years since Tough Age released their last album, I Get The Feeling Central, and in that time the band has gone through a lot of changes. Jarrett Samson and Penny Clark packed their bags and moved across the country from Vancouver to Toronto and the band itself has scaled back from a four-piece to a power trio with the addition of drummer Jesse Locke and Clark taking over bass duties. What hasn’t changed for Tough Age is their ability to write perfect songs.
