The Shins – No Way Out (Live)

Saw this the other day on Letterman. I’ve always liked The Shins. At least give it a half listen, once the chorus hits, I’m sure you’ll enjoy.

Global Showcase: The Whigs

 

From Athens, Georgia

The Whigs new album “Enjoy The Company” dropped in September and they still gaht it guy. And they’re still on the up. All four of their albums differ from each other in all around sound and style, but they all manage to be solid rock albums. “Enjoy The Company” sticks to their theme of constant evolution as a band and incorporation of all types of rock genres, mainly Alternative, Southern, Indie, and Dance Rock. It’s also a step in a positive direction from their last album. Get familiar.

Muse Perform Madness on SNL

Muse killed it on SNL this past Saturday with host Daniel Craig. I’m not big on electronic music, but I WANT THAT BASS that bassist Christopher Wolstenholme has. That thing is awesome.

The whole episode was an A by the way. Every sketch was good. Craig did a great job hosting. Funny stuff. Here’s Craig along with the lovely and talented Nasim Pedrad as Lea Michelle in “HIPPOPOTOPUSSY” in the sketch “Bond Girls.”

Local Showcase: Porque I Said So

Quincy, MA

Post-Punk / Alternative Rock

Porque at the Milky Way

Singer/songwriter/guitarist Mike Delosh has enough A.D.D. and song-writing ability to write 5 of the world’s greatest Alternative / Post-Punk songs in a month, that no one will ever hear. Songs pump out of him so fast, that only the real A+ material usually makes the cut for a set list or EP. Which is almost as much a curse as it is a gift, since I’ve never heard a Porque song I didn’t like. Either way, you should listen to all of Porque I Said So‘s available internet catalogue and see what you think.

Porque I Said So has a unique element to their sound that I can’t really put my finger on. Maybe it has to do with band members Mike Delosh, Paul Adams, Greg Tragellis, and Dave Nesti developing an undying chemistry after playing music together in several different bands for over a decade. I hate to pigeon-hole bands and say who they sound like, but if you take their own original, somewhat cosmic post-punk sound, and blend it with some Archers of Loaf, Jimmy Eat World, Failure, and Hum, you get Porque I Said So. They have a new LP due out eventually (give em half a year maybe?). So we’ll keep you posted. Check em out. Porque’s Youtube Channel

 

Global Showcase: Quicksand

From New York. With a bit of short-lived success in the ’90s, reunited Quicksand still absolutely rock.
