Darlingside Release New EP ‘Woodstock’

DarlingsideIndie-folk is a growing (and still underrated) genre. It’s mellow, calming, inspiring, rootsy, and has just enough twang to make your heart melt. Enter Boston-based Darlingside. With a flair for folk, this quartet bring four very different musical styles to the table, melding influences and instruments in their latest split-EP, Woodstock. The EP combines the works of Darlingside and Heather Maloney with two originals from each, and one cover song—but this isn’t your average split. It’s a collaboration, with each act performing on the other’s tunes, making for an intriguing mix. Download the album below. Continue reading ‘Darlingside Release New EP ‘Woodstock’’

The Mowgli’s Announce SXSW Showcase, Tour Dates

The Mowgli'sI remember the first time I heard The Mowgli’s crooning out “San Francisco” on the radio. I remember because it was right before I made the move to that very city, and I kept thinking that if The Mowgli’s sounded that jazzed about it, I probably should be too. Flash forward three months, and the band is getting ready to play the Pandora showcase at SXSW this Friday, March 14th at 2pm in The Gatsby. Can’t make it out to Austin, TX this week? Don’t worry, the band will be touring the U.S. throughout March and April with support along the way from acts such as American Authors and MisterWives. Check out the full routing here, and more info surrounding their time at SXSW below. Continue reading ‘The Mowgli’s Announce SXSW Showcase, Tour Dates’

The Black Keys Raising Money For Local Little League

the-black-keysLove to hear about a band that stays true to their roots. In the case of Ohio’s The Black Keys, they’ll be giving back to their community by raising funds for the West Akron Baseball League, with all profits going toward new uniforms, upgrading equipment, replacing benches and backstops, and subsidizing registration fees. And in the same spirit of good will, old equipment will be donated to other local leagues.

Dan [Auerbach] and I played little league when we were kids before we got into music, it was a really positive hobby that kept us from sitting around watching TV,” said drummer Patrick Carney. “We are proud to be sponsoring W.A.B.L to hopefully offset some of the leagues expenses and get more kids outside having fun.”

The shirts, which are designed by Carney’s brother Michael, features the league’s logo on the front, along with “The Black Keys” and the number 02 on the back. You can grab your own shirt and support the West Akron Baseball League here.

Frank Ocean, Mick Jones, Paul Simonon And Diplo Collaborate For Converse

ConverseConverse has a thing for musical collaborations and mashups. Many of their shoes are based on famous albums and artwork, and they’ve become well-known in recent years for their expanding Rubber Tracks recording project, which in many cases makes creative pairings of artists and producers. So it should come as no surprise that they’re once again geared up for this year’s SXSW, releasing a new collaboration from Frank Ocean, Mick Jones, Paul Simonon, and Diplo. The collaboration comes as part of Converse’s new Three Artists One Song series, and while this is technically four artists, one song, we’re guessing that Simonon and Jones are being counted as one for their time in The Clash. There’s even a few special guests on this one, courtesy of the West Los Angeles Children’s Choir. You can check out the new song, dubbed “Hero,” below.  Continue reading ‘Frank Ocean, Mick Jones, Paul Simonon And Diplo Collaborate For Converse’

Modern Day Escape Announce Hiatus

Modern Day EscapeAs they say, all good things must come to an end.
