At the Drive-Inn, the grunge band that broke up in 2001, will be back together for night three of Coachella this year. In the most recent years frontman Cedric Bixler-Zavala and Omar Alfredo Rodríguez-López went on to create and play with Mars Volta. This highly anticipated reunion will take place April 15 and 22 in Indio, CA.
Canadian singer Spencer Krug is a talented keyboardists, singer, and songwriter who has had much success with his past ventures. In a couple of months he will bring us his second album, ‘Heartbreaking Bravery’, under his new alias Moonface. He teamed up with the Finnish band SINAII on this album, who he had toured with in the past with his old band, Wolf Parade. This new sound has a throwback feel to it, it kind of has an early 90′s, alternative, The Clash feel. Check out the single “Teary Eyes and Bloody Lips” below…
Sounds like a James Bond theme song? So what! It kicks ass, and is just proof that good rock n’ roll is still out there. The song “Shotgun” is the second single released from McGuinness’ new LP ‘Trigger the Alarm’. This Irish singer, known for being the frontman for Eugene and the Lizards, plans to release his fourth album, ‘Trigger the Alarm’ this June. Check out his new video above, directed by Grammy nominated Will Lovelace and Dylan Southern.
Dana Janssen, the percussionist for Akron/Family, who is currently recording under the name Dana Buoy, will release his solo debut ‘Summer Bodies’. This song is perfect for its release date, May 8, giving that springy beach like sound.
“Call to Be”
The old and founding member of Oasis, Noel Gallagher, has brought us a treat for the weekend. This incredibly done video brings Noel Gallagher’s lyrics to life. It really reminds me of why I instinctively liked Oasis, even though this is from his new project, ‘Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’. It’s just one of those songs you can picture singing to with thousands of other fans, as you watch them playing live at some outdoor venue. You can catch him this summer at Coachella and on tour, see below for dates: http://www.noelgallagher.com/#gigs
