1. White Denim and Tame Impala are going on tour together this coming fall, dates below. Both bands have nabbed the #1 title as Best Psychedelic Albums of the Year in 2011 and 2012 respectively. Let’s get weird.

    10-08 St. Louis, MO - The Pageant
    10-09 Madison, WI - Orpheum Theater
    10-10 Chicago, IL - Riviera Theater
    10-26 Boulder, CO - Boulder Theater
    10-27 Denver, CO - Ogden Theater

  2. We caught The Young at The Hideout in Chicago last night. Despite a virtually empty bar, the Austin rockers turned it up to 11, giving equal flashes to great North American rock like Crazy Horse and Dinosaur Jr. Whoever is doing scouting for Matador Records is absolutely killing it.

  3. Thanks to Cursive and Cymbals Eat Guitars for covering this 90s sensitive-boy classic, “Hey Jealousy.”

  4. Easter, FP style.  

  5. "There’s a whole different feeling on the last record. I think I’ve definitely grown as a songwriter since then. And working with a new producer has changed everything. I’ve really learned a lot from working with Le Chev. It was definitely a big step up for me, but by no means do I listen to it and cringe or anything. It’s alright. I give myself a B+!"
Today, we interview Frankie Rose on her new record, her past endeavors and Enya. Click the photo to read.

  6. If you want to listen to something that will make you feel like the hero of a Top-Gun-style 80’s movie, have I got the album for you!  Stream Chromatics Kill for Love above.   You’ll thank me.  

  7. Ryan Adams turning one of Gillian Welch’s best tracks into the perfect Crazy Horse jam it always should have been. Cop this cover and other great demos from Adams’ Destroyer Sessions, recorded days before Heartbreaker.

  8. The rare 3-minute track from psych freak-rockers White Hills, whose latest album Frying On This Rock is out now via Thrill Jockey.  

  9. I think I’m really falling for Sharon Van Etten. She has a New Years resolution to wear more pajamas? Swoon.
