Hype Monitor: Shrinebuilder, Florence and the Machine, Fool’s Gold

November 5th, 2009
The Band: Shrinebuilder The Buzz: Shrinebuilder may be a relatively new band, but they’re hardly up-and-comers. Comprised of members of metal titans Scott Weinrich of St. Vitus, Al Cisneros of Sleep, the Melvins’ Dale Crover and Scott Kelly of Neurosis, the group binds together the best qualities of its significant legacy, making slow-moving metal that engulfs like a tar pit. Listen If: You’ve ever waxed rhapsodic about Master of Reality — and especially if you have done ...

Julian Casablancas Gifts Fans “SNL” Christmas Song on MySpace

November 5th, 2009
We’re more than a month away from Christmas, but Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas is feeling charitable this week. First, he released his solo album Phrazes for the Young, then he posted his upcoming Xmas single a month and 20 days early on his MySpace Music page. “Everyone seems to do a Christmas song at some point, so I always said to myself I’d do that song,” Casablancas told the NME. “I now checked that off ...

Tegan and Sara Talk “Sainthood,” Sanity and Their “Hell” Video

November 5th, 2009
Six albums and 10 years into their career as indie-pop double threats Tegan and Sara, the 29-year-old Canadian duo have put enough distance between themselves and their first releases to analyze them critically. Quite critically, it turns out. “I like to think that our career is divided into two really important times. Those first couple of records, I’ve come to terms with how embarrassed I am of them and see them as … development,” Sara ...

Pixies Celebrate 20 Years of “Doolittle” at L.A. Tour Launch

November 5th, 2009
Photo: Webber/WireImage There are drawbacks to performing an entire album live in concert — even for the Pixies, who unfurled 1989’s groundbreaking Doolittle on Wednesday in the first of three sold-out nights at the Hollywood Palladium. “You can’t skip it if you don’t like any of the songs,” bassist-singer-chatterbox Kim Deal noted onstage with a blissful grin. “You have to listen to all of them.” The reunited Pixies began a nine-city U.S. Doolittle Tour this week in ...

November 5th, 2009
Photo: Carr/Getty(White), Dowling/Getty(Slash) Slash has recruited an impressive roster of guest musicians to appear on Slash & Friends, the Velvet Revolver guitarist’s 2010 solo album. Pals like Dave Grohl, Flea, Chris Cornell, the Pussycat Dolls’ Nicole Scherzinger and pretty much every Guns n’ Roses member not named Axl Rose will make appearances on the LP. However, Slash revealed that one guy he really wanted to work with rebuffed him: The White Stripes/Raconteurs/Dead Weather’s Jack White. ...

Evanescence Return to the Stage at “Secret” New York Gig

November 5th, 2009

Bush was in office, you wouldn’t have been able to tell from the band’s adept, hard-charging performance. But ...
