Coachella 2007 [22 Jan 2007|12:18pm]

The lineup has been announced.

I honestly am not that intrested in any of the three headliners but some of the other bands are pretty good. I have to say not their best year though.

If I go it will be for Arcade Fire, Interpol, Decemberists, and New Pornographers

Also can someone explain to me how the hell Peeping Tom got on this list. I heard them open for The Who and they are quite possibly one of the worst bands I have ever heard.

April 27th Bjork
April 28th Red Hot Chilli Peppers
April 29th Rage Against The Machine

Arcade Fire
Manu Chao
Willie Nelson
Happy Mondays
Gotan Project
The Good, The Bad and The Queen
Paul Van Dyk
Arctic Monkeys
lineupCollapse )

Mamas and Papas' Doherty dies [20 Jan 2007|01:04pm]

It's no so much indie, but music news none the less.

I thought some people would be intrested.

taken from Canoe- Jam! Music news

Mamas and Papas' Doherty dies


TORONTO (CP) - Halifax-born Denny Doherty was remembered Friday as the "angelic voice" that carried the '60s folk-pop group the Mamas and the Papas through such memorable hits as "California Dreamin' " and "Monday, Monday."

Doherty died early Friday at his home in suburban Mississauga after suffering an aneurysm in his abdomen, said his sister Frances Arnold. He was 66.

"Everybody used to think that John Phillips, who wrote the songs, was also the main voice of the group, but it wasn't - it was the angelic voice of Denny Doherty," said Larry Leblanc, Canadian editor of Billboard Magazine.

"He was often overlooked but it was really his voice that carried the group; also Cass (Elliot) was a formidable singer."

The group's hits also included "Dream a Little Dream of Me" and "Dedicated to the One I Love." Doherty co-wrote the songs "I Saw Her Again Last Night" and "Got a Feelin'. "

James Brown Dies at 73 [25 Dec 2006|03:04pm]

By GREG BLUESTEIN, Associated Press Writer

James Brown, the dynamic, pompadoured "Godfather of Soul," whose rasping vocals and revolutionary rhythms made him a founder of rap, funk and disco as well, died early Monday, his agent said. He was 73.

Brown was hospitalized with pneumonia at Emory Crawford Long Hospital on Sunday and died around 1:45 a.m. Monday, said his agent, Frank Copsidas of Intrigue Music. Longtime friend Charles Bobbit was by his side, he said.

Copsidas said Brown's family was being notified of his death and that the cause was still uncertain. "We really don't know at this point what he died of," he said.

Along with Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan and a handful of others, Brown was one of the major musical influences of the past 50 years. At least one generation idolized him, and sometimes openly copied him. His rapid-footed dancing inspired Mick Jagger and Michael Jackson among others. Songs such as David Bowie's "Fame," Prince's "Kiss," George Clinton's "Atomic Dog" and Sly and the Family Stone's "Sing a Simple Song" were clearly based on Brown's rhythms and vocal style.

If Brown's claim to the invention of soul can be challenged by fans of Ray Charles and Sam Cooke, then his rights to the genres of rap, disco and funk are beyond question. He was to rhythm and dance music what Dylan was to lyrics: the unchallenged popular innovator.

Xiu Xiu Release Handmade Tour Photo Book [22 Dec 2006|05:28pm]

stolen from Pitchfork.com

Surely by now you've seen the two installments of scandalous Xiu Xiu tour Polaroids that graced these very pages, courtesy of tour manager/merch dude David Horvitz. Allowing us an intimate look into the dazzling life of these rockstars in their natural habitats (chiefly hotel rooms, vans, and diners), Horvitz' photos garnered world wide (web) acclaim and remained permanently etched into the grey matter of all who saw them...for better or for worse.

So of course you're fixing for more! And Horvitz hears your pleas, which is why he's put together Xiu Xiu Tour Book #4, the latest installment in his series of handmade picture books documenting the exploits of Xiu Xiu on the open road. This one depicts moments from the Xiu's recent tour in support of The Air Force.

But check it: this time, instead of seedy Polaroids of people peeing on their feet, Xiu Xiu Tour Book #4 collects significantly more tasteful and often fairly artistic shots of the Xiu crew in action. They're hardly professional, however, which lends them a charm similar to that of your family vacation photos. If your family is, you know, slightly insane.

Check out lo-res samples of all the pix here.

Horvitz hopes to make future editions of Book #4 featuring different photographs, and the first one-- which promises bigger pages and more photos than ever before-- is available now for $20 at Horvitz' website. There's even a DIY mail-in option for folks who can't quite swing that sum. Swank!

News Website [20 Dec 2006|07:26pm]

I'm trying to think of the name of the website that has all the kind of "indie news" up on it, but I cannot think of the name for the life of me and it is driving me insane.

Can anyone help me out. I have it bookmarked on my laptop but I don't have it with me :(

nevermind, I found it, it was Pitchfork.
