Billy Bragg Speaks on the Music Industry Shelling Out Their “Dirty Work” to ISP’s

The Music Industry, Big 6 and all other corporate anti-christs always seem to be looking for the easiest way out. Where can their greedy hands rummage more money? Who can they pawn off their “dirty work” to while cutting costs? I think it’s clear that they’re never looking out for the interest of the artist, […]

2009 Paso Robles Wine Festival

Although there was plenty of good happenings going on this past weekend, I’m quite happy I choose to attend the Paso Robles Wine Festival. What can I say, I love me some wine. Amidst the 105-degree weather we had an amazing time. I tried pacing myself, but after about an hour and a half I […]

If You Don't Want a Wild One, Quit Hanging 'round With Me

Those Darlins could not have said it better. “Wild One” is my new anthem. To all my potential suitors (if any), take this song as somewhat a warning. And to all you beautiful ladies who live lives that others dream of, free spirits, enjoying life to the fullest, even if you hit the end of […]

The Beatles or The Rolling Stones?

I love Metric and all things Emily Haines. Although their new album Fantasies doesn’t quite tickle my fancy as did their prior albums, I can’t seem to get the catchy “Gimmie Sympathy” out of my head.

I came across their new EP, Danger Is just a couple weeks ago, featuring guitar God and epic crooner Dan Auerbach on two of their tracks.
