Theme song for Summer – Washed Out

Saturday, August 22nd, 2009

Best track I’ve come across in awhile, a must download. The warm, melodic, minimal style of Washed Out makes for the ultimate in relaxing beach noise. Grab I Feel It All Around, below and visit his myspace page for other tracks. Hopefully we won’t have to wait till SXSW to catch this guy live. GvB and Pitchfork have been pushing these tracks so look for good things for Washed Out in the future.

F#CK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Placebo Cancelled at La Zona Rosa Austin

Friday, August 14th, 2009

PLACEBO have today announced they have been forced to postpone their
forthcoming tour of North America after their lead singer, Brian Molko,
collapsed on stage at Summer Sonic Festival in Osaka, Japan.
Brian had picked up a virus in Asia which, coupled with jet lag and exhaustion,
caused the problem after the first song.

Brian is now back home in London recovering, but has been ordered by his
doctors to take a 6 week long period of rest. Regrettably therefore, the
band and management have no option but to postpone the forthcoming North
American tour.

Riverman Management commented, “This is pretty
devastating for everyone – we’ve only ever cancelled 3 shows in
Placebo’s 14 year history, however Brian’s health is paramount. Our
sincere apologies go out to Placebo’s loyal American fans who have
waited a long time to see the band. We will try and do everything to
re-arrange the dates as soon as possible”.

The band have had an intensive worldwide schedule this year, promoting
their 6th studio album ‘Battle for the Sun’, this includes 24 high
profile festival performances over the summer, an unprecedented amount
for any band in 2009.

Tickets can be refunded at the point of purchase.

Please keep checking for any additional information.

Bad Veins – Self titled album out now – Emo’s August 28th

Tuesday, August 11th, 2009

Bad Veins are a Cincinnati duo who have been around for awhile but just released their first full length album. Gold and Warm, The Lie, and The Ending, are all incredible tracks. Their sound is honest, melodic indie rock/pop. Great for sitting in traffic or people watching at the airport. I prefer the live versions (with the exception of The Lie)I’ve posted for download but the video will give a you a great idea of what these guys are all about.
