Last we heard from Californian rock ‘n’ roller Ty Segall, he had toned down his tendencies toward fuzzy, noisy garage-rock and opted for a quieter, simpler approach that channeled retro folk vibes, on 2013’s Sleeper. It wasn’t too unexpected, seeing as how the 27-year-old has explored countless genres since he started performing solo in 2008 (and don’t get me started on his six other bands).
With Manipulator, Segall recalls his psychedelic, classic-rock roots, but now focuses more heavily on ’60s and ’70s pop. Read More

Brooklyn-based blues rock band She Keeps Bees dropped a new single from their forthcoming album recently, and the video for the song is just as beautifully surreal and eerie as the single itself.
"Is What It Is" comes out on the album Eight Houses on September 16th from the label Future Gods, which will be the band's fourth full-length album. If you're into some soulful, dark, and dreamy music with goose bump-inducing vocals, the album is definitely something to look forward to. We can't wait to get our hands on it. Read More

Dan (Mark Ruffalo) is a shaggy-haired, chain-smoking, alcoholic divorced dad with a broken dream of running his own record label. Gretta (Keira Knightley) is a down-on-her-luck young New York émigré with a song in her heart and a battered past of her own. Begin Again is less about the new beginning these two lonely city dwellers find, and more about coming to terms with previous endings. Light on plot and heavy on stubbly Mark Ruffalo grins, Begin Again is perfect for a solo movie night. Read More

What do swimming pools, sexual voyeurism, elevators, and eco-terrorist extraterrestrials have in common? They’re all the subjects of songs on Hotel Valentine, Cibo Matto’s first release in 15 years. Much of the album is written from the perspective of a wry ghost who haunts a hotel and delivers deadpan lines like, “I had some cheese and seedless grapes for lunch and floated around for the rest of the afternoon.”
The band’s Japanese-born, N.Y.C. Read More
