Rebecca Docter’s ‘Best of 2013’ In Music

2013 delivered a sea of great albums, but five stood out above the rest. Check out what albums made my cut! 5. Moving Mountains – Moving Mountains Very seldom do I find an album that I can listen to all the way through without skipping or shuffling tracks, so when I listed to Moving Mountains’ self-titled, […]

Tarynn Law’s ‘Best of 2013’ In Music

To say that 2013 has been one hell of a year for music would be, well, the understatement of the year. The music community has been #blessed with some awesome new bands that weren’t around (or hadn’t released anything) prior to 2013 and are now making massive waves, some of which are in my top […]

LISTEN: Arctic Monkeys Release New B-Side

As a B-side to “One For The Road,” the England-based band has released the track “You’re So Dark.” Mixing the band’s R&B influence with frontman Alex Turner’s sultry voice, the track is an excellent companion to the previously released AM. This new track is no surprise, as Arctic Monkeys have already treated fans to two previously […]

Watch Arctic Monkeys Perform “Do I Wanna Know?” and “R U Mine?” on Kimmel

If you listen closely, you may remember that last week’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live with Kanye West was supposed to have Arctic Monkeys perform as the musical guest. West’s interview (see: rant) ran pretty long, to the point where even Kimmel couldn’t interrupt him for the commercial break. And so, unintentional or not, his […]

REVIEW: Arctic Monkeys – ‘AM’

Artist: Arctic Monkeys Album: AM Genre: Indie Rock, Garage Rock Label: Domino Records The Arctic Monkeys have long held a strange place in indie rock. Just as every other indie rock band seemed to be either a watered down combination of The Strokes and The Smiths (we get it, hipsters, you like your guitars reverberating […]

WATCH: Queens Of The Stone Age – “Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?” (Arctic Monkeys Cover)

Queens of the Stone Age‘s Josh Homme produced the new Arctic Monkeys album, AM, and has now covered the single from said album with his main project. Perhaps unexpected, though, this version is far more relaxed and chill; though it isn’t just Josh singing and playing on it, this version is definitely acoustic. Overall, it’s […]

Arctic Monkeys Release “Stop The World I Wanna Get Off With You”

My favorite song titles are the ones with the best puns. Arctic Monkeys have won me over with the release of their latest single, titled “Stop The World I Wanna Get Off With You.” The song is slow, deliberate and will make you feel sexy. Want to listen to it for yourself? You can check […]

Austin City Limits

Austin City Limits Releases Schedule

Austin, TX’s slogan should include not only keeping the DIY-centered city “weird,” but musical too. Austin City Limits returns this year for two weekends, October 4-6 and October 11-13, and the schedule has just been released. Much to festival-goers’ delights, the two weekends have a pretty similar schedule. Much to festival-goers’ disappointment, there are some […]
