1. "Soft-spoken A.C. Newman doesn’t seem like a braggart. Yet he feels so strongly that his rock band, the New Pornographers, has just made its best work that a simple good review won’t do. “I haven’t seen any negative reviews,” Newman said. “But I find myself getting pissed off at reviews that I don’t think are positive enough.”"

    Wealth of riches fuels rock band New Pornographers

  5. Flake Music - Spanway Hits - When You Land Here, It’s Time to Return

    Before James Mercer and the Shins were the Shins, they were Flake Music. They are re-releasing their 1997 album (again).  Still good.

    The Replacements: Alex Chilton

    The Replacements perform “Alex Chilton” for The Tonight Show audience in their first TV appearance together in 25 years!

  15. New Name - Sinkane - Mean Love

    This Brooklyn artist just released a new EP, and the whole thing is worth a listen.  If Genesis had a doppleganger from Africa they might sound like this.

    I dig the horns on this track.
