What Made “Braid” a Punk-Rock Video Game? A Look Back at the Innovative Title

September 4th, 2009
Last year the video gaming community was abuzz over Braid, an Xbox title that has been described as “Super Mario set in the future.” It wasn’t like most popular games: it was short (it could be beat in a day), its graphics were pretty but far from state of the art, and it was designed in unrevolutionary 2-D. It had also been made independently, not by a large commercial game company but mostly by one ...

September 4th, 2009
Photo: Michael Ochs Archive/Getty As you may have noticed from all the big yellow buses that have suddenly wreaked havoc on your morning commute, school is back in session (or it will be after the long weekend — enjoy it, kids!). In honor of the Trapper Keeper-trekking masses that had their summer vacations ended in the name of education, we dedicate this Labor Day weekend’s Rock List to School Songs.

Flashback: The Stooges’ Great Peanut Butter Incident of 1970

September 4th, 2009
The Stooges revealed to Rolling Stone yesterday that they’ll reunite early next year with Raw Power guitarist James Williamson back on lead guitar, marking the Stooges’ first concerts since the January 2009 death of guitarist Ron Asheton. While Raw Power and the Pop/Williamson 1977 collabo Kill City put Williamson’s skills in the spotlight, this week’s Flashback remembers Asheton’s incredible tenure as the Stooges lead guitarist with a 1970 performance of Funhouse’s “T.V. Eye” and “1970″ ...

“I Am T-Pain” Auto-Tune and Recording App Comes to iPhone

September 4th, 2009
T-Pain knows most people think two things when they hear his name: “I have top hats and there’s Auto-Tune,” he tells Rolling Stone. He opted to turn the second signature into a new iPhone application developed with Smule. The “I Am T-Pain” app costs $2.99 and lets users transform their own voice into Auto-Tuned vocals, record tracks and stream them to Facebook or MySpace and create their own songs, Jay-Z be damned: “I mean most ...

Wolfmother Break Out “Cosmic Egg” at Secret New York Show

September 4th, 2009
Photo: Danny ClinchA boozy night out was all it took to convince Wolfmother to give up their only night off this week. The Aussie stoner-rock heroes are currently in the midst of an East Coast jaunt opening for the Killers, but last night they also made a surprise appearance at the tiny Bowery Electric club in New York. The band admitted on stage that the idea for the gig emerged during a drinking session the ...

Single Minded: MGMT Do Talking Heads, Van Halen at Devo Speed
