New Music Report: No Age, Plus Florence and the Machine

October 21st, 2009
Rolling Stone’s Kevin O’Donnell guides you to two killer releases in our weekly New Music Report. First up, Losing Feeling, a new EP from SoCal skate-punk duo No Age. Last year’s full-length Nouns was a messy collection of noise rock, and on their new EP the pair tone down the fuzz to focus on hooks — kind of like if Brian Wilson collaborated with Black Flag. Next up is the debut from a onetime RS ...

Breaking: Mayer Hawthorne

October 21st, 2009
Who: Michigan singer/multi-instrumentalist/producer whose month-old debut of retro-soul gems, A Strange Arrangement, is earning him fans like Justin Timberlake, Mark Ronson and John Mayer, who ­Tweeted, “Record of the year goes to Mayer Hawthorne,” and then invited the rookie to open for him on New Year’s Eve.
