RATM Goes A Capella at the RNC

Thursday, September 4th, 2008

“Rage Against the Machine showed up to perform a show outside of the Minnesota State Capitol for the Ripple Effect music festival on Tuesday, but the concert was shut down. The band was set to perform at 6:30P, however police denied the band access to the stage.”

In response, the group delivered an a capella version of “Bulls on Parade.” …

Good. Now get back in the studio and record some new material…

Album Review: The Watson Twins, "Fire Songs"

Thursday, September 4th, 2008

You probably know ’em from Jenny Lewis and ___, pop-py alt-country that sounds like, well, Rilo Kiley. This album is hit-or-miss. It misses due to limp, meandering songwriting. But when it hits…damn. These girls have incredible voices, they wring songs like sponges. Great production values, too.

Play: 1++ (funnest on album), 2 [4](Cure cover, not so hot), 9++, 10+++ (oh, wow), 11++
