White Lies for Killers


Though Paul Weller is replacing The Killers in their timeslot, I doubt that he'll replace them in the hearts of Killer's fans (one can always hope though). But no worries, there is a band that could do it and become that new hot fuss that Japanese K softies are looking for: White Lies.

He/she styles with a simple t-shirt with some logo or ironic phrase, pairing it with athletic shoes and shorts. A flimsy, disposable rain poncho is within easy reach, and by the end of the night, this person is running on fumes

Chuck D on PBS

Public Enemy front man Chuck D is one of the featured interviewees in a new TV documentary Freedom Songs: The Music of the Civil Rights Movement now airing on America's public television station, PBS.

Reviews: Tortoise Gets Dancy on New Album

Album: Beacons of Ancestorship
Artist: Tortoise

Tortoise relased its latest album, Beacons of Ancestorship, about a week ago (June 23-24) and has garnered solid, though not perfect, reviews.

Wired calls it "the Chicago-based quintet’s most self-assured record yet"..."a potent dose of unclassifiable sound that veers from dub, funk and hip-hop to jazz, punk and rock without ever dissipating into incoherence." The LA Times says it's the band's "most invigorated set of omnivorous instrumentals since 1998's TNT."

But the most canny observation comes not surprisingly from Pitchfork Media, which notes that several songs go - dare one imagine! - a bit ravey: "Dance music has always been in Tortoise's arsenal, but it takes center stage here."

Here's Conor!

For those whose well of nostalgia is pretty shallow--say, back to the pre-Lady GaGa days of 2006--the sudden inclusion of Bright Eyes at the Red Marquee should be a welcome surprise. Though Bright Eyes IS Conor Oberst, on his last two albums he's jettisoned the nom de singer-songwriter that graced his many albums since debuting at the age of 14 for his birth name. Can we expect those great old songs, like his only number 1 hit, "Lua"?
