Vote in the NME USA music awards. Or not.

NME is sponsoring the first-ever NME Awards USA. I just tried going over to their website to read about the nominees, and when voting ends, but apparently you need to be a registered user to see the information. And that's completely lame. So I won't be voting. If you don't have the same online editorial […]

Best of 2007: Erik G's favorite songs

OK, well, nobody likes to reflect and rank more than I do (I’m a scientist, I love to quantify), so here goes. I’ve got my favorite songs of 2007 – no, not best or most innovative, but rather the songs I liked … lots and lots and lots. There is a little overlap from my […]

Kings of Leon in marital spat

Nathan Followill (drummer of Kings of Leon) proposed to his girlfriend… and his bandmates are not happy. In fact, they're worried about the future of the band.

Kings of Leon opened with “Black Thumbnail” and […]

Straight from the horse's mouth, Silversun Pickups to play FNX Best Music Poll in Boston

Just got this on MySpace. SSPU = WOO! Some of the other bands (esp. Cinematics) = MOO. But still the closest thing we've got here in Boston to a major-name festival, although as I recall this event is a coinciding series of shows, so like you really can only catch two or three bands cause […]

As Seen On TV: Iggy Pop, Amy Winehouse, The Fratellis, Arctic Monkeys, Jarvis and more!

Time for the weekly "As Seen On TV" post! Wasn't Luke Wilson funny last week on Conan last Monday? Especially the part about how he hangs out in Owen's house when Owen is out of town? Good stuff.  I missed Morrissey on Friday night when we was on Kimmel.  Did anyone see that? Here's a […]

Knocked Up?

The song "Knocked Up" from the new Kings of Leon record, Because of the Times, is on KEXP right now. I hate this fucking song. Can anyone explain to me why there's anything redeeming about it whatsoever? {And note: I was the imaginary girl who really liked the last Kings of Leon record!!}
