Song of the Day – Tuesday 12/7/2010 PJ Harvey December 7, 2010

PJ Harvey will release her eighth album, Let England Shake which is scheduled for release on 2/14/2011 in the UK and on 2/15/2011 in the US.  She made the following statement to the BBC regarding her new album:

“I think a lot of my work has often been about the interior, the emotional, what happens inside oneself.  This time I’ve just been looking out, so it’s not only to do with taking a look at England, but taking a look at the world and what’s happening in the current day world affairs.  But always trying to come from the human point of view because I don’t feel qualified to sing from a political standpoint.”

Miz Polly Jean will embark on a mini-European Tour (which is already sold out) in February, and will hit the festival circuit this Summer…

Harvey – Written on the Forehead

Song of the Day – Monday 10/4/10 Hurricane Bells October 4, 2010

Hurricane Bells is Steve Schiltz, who for the past 10 years has fronted New York’s indie rock band, Longwave. 

Hurricane Bells was intended to be a small side project for Schiltz’s more personal, softer side, but when his song “Monsters” was selected for the Twilight: New Moon soundtrack, things blew up!  Schiltz explains, “I expected to put it out myself and maybe sell a thousand copies, do one little tour, probably on the East Coast, and that would be it…I got an email from the director saying that he wanted to use it as maybe the first song in the film, and I started kinda s**ting my pants!”

With a clean pair of underwear and the release of his new EP, Down Comes the Rain on 9/28/2010, Hurricane Bells will open up for KT Tunstall on 11/8/2010 at The Warfield in San Francisco…

Song of the Day – Thursday 9/16/2010 The Flaming Lips September 16, 2010

Let’s dial it back to 1993 when Wayne Coyne, lead singer of The Flaming Lips didn’t look so much like Richard Branson, but rather had a shock of bright orange hair and sang songs about girls who thought of ghosts and made sandwiches with vaseline, and boys who blew their noses into magazines. 

See The Flaming Lips and Ariel Pink on 10/1/2010 and 10/2/2010 at the Fox Theater in Oakland…

The Flaming Lips – She Don’t Use Jelly




Song of the Day – Thursday 8/19/2010 Clinic August 19, 2010

Liverpool’s Clinic, the surgically-masked mad scientists/post-punk revivalists are about to release their new album, Bubblegum on 10/4/2010.  Best known for their fast-paced, vintage sound, their new album (according to their website) does away with the old: “In place of churning riffs and wired vocals is a dream state of harpsichords, dulcimers and strings.  Melody and softness combine with the band’s unique internal logic to produce a record of pop beauty.”  Cool.

You can see Clinic operate when they hit the stage at The Independent in San Francisco on 11/19/2010…

Clinic – I’m Aware




Song of the Day – Wednesday 8/11/2010 Mona August 11, 2010

Proclaiming to one day be “bigger than Bono” these four boys from Nashville, Tennessee, BKA Mona, have set some pretty lofty goals for themselves.  Well, they have the look and the attitude, and they have been compared to U2, Kings of Leon, Rocket from the Crypt, and a little Clash… but really, with a name like Mona can their dreams really become reality? 

See for yourself…they will release their debut single, “Listen to Your Love” on 9/13/2010 by ZION NOIZ.  You can pre-order here.
