New Music Discovery: Tame Impala "Let It Happen"

Australia's Tame Impala is certainly one of my must watch bands at Sasquatch! this year... the type of festival band for when you've been... having a long day of fun only to lock into their sweet groove and get lost! We're expecting a new album this year, a follow-up to 2012's stellar 'Lonerism',...

New Music Discovery: Mumford and Sons "Believe"

Are you ready for a brand new sound from Mumford and Sons? The dudes have ditched their banjos and kick drums for a bigger, more electric sound on their new record. Instead of being compared to The Lumineers or The Head & The Heart, they're now getting compared to U2 and Coldplay. That's huge!...

New Music Discovery: Stream Chastity Belt's new record!

For March, we have Chastity Belt as our Locals Only Artist of the Month. They're four bad ass, funny, smart, and talented women who got their start in Walla Walla, Washington! I was already a fan of the band when I heard their new single and title track to their upcoming record, "Time To Go Home"...

New Music Discovery: Lieutenant (Nate Mendel of Foo Fighters)

I can't believe that Nate Mendel has been tickling our ears for so many years in so many great bands without ever doing his own thing. He's held down the low-end for Sunny Day Real Estate, the Fire Theft, the Foo Fighters and finally his own solo project, Lieutenant. Their new album, 'If I Kill...

So, You're In Seattle: Ben Gibbard & Nick Harmer

"Do you wanna have Death Cab For Cutie on your podcast?" is the best question I've been asked in ages... well, besides "do you wanna go to Little Woody's?". Ben and new guitarist/pianist Zac played a small EndSession for a handful of people, then Mr. Gibbard and his bass playing pal Nick Harmer...

New Music Discovery: Mumford and Sons Announce New Record

We were teased last week by a short video of the men from Mumford and Sons plugging in and noodling on electric guitars - a taste of what's to come? Yes. Mumford is back with the followup to 2012's Babel : Wilder Mind (5/4). We've only gotten a taste, but know the band intend to implement "U2-sized...

Watch alt-J Perform "Every Other Freckle" At Chihuly Garden and Glass

It's hard to imagine a place that would better pair the mystic, floating sounds of alt-J than a building whose walls and ceiling are windows in the middle of a giant blown glass sculpture garden. Watch a beautiful performance of "Every Other Freckle" below: The album "This is All Yours" is just...

New Music Discovery: Nate Ruess "Nothing Without Love"

While Fun enjoyed a ton of success after several years of non-stop hard work and... well, fun, they definitely appear to need a little time to work out their own creative interests. Jack Antonoff told us how he kept busy on the road with Fun by writing his own solo record. Now, singer Nate Ruess is...
