say what you will about Michael Jackson the Person, but Michael Jackson the Musician was awesome. Has there ever been a better live entertainer?

Song of the Day: June 25, 2009
06/25/09 at 10:17 AM by Drew Beringer
Today's song of the day is "Dance Anthem of the 80s" by Regina Spektor. This song is off her spectacular new album, Far, which is in stores now.


Dance Anthem of the 80sYou are so sweet
Dancing to that beat

There's a meat market down the street
The boys and the girls watch each other eat

You are so sweet, so sweet
Dancing and moving to that beat, that beat

There's a meat market down the street
The boys and girls watch each other eat
The boys and the girls watch each other eat
When they really just wanna watch each other
Sleep
They want to watch, to watch each other
Sleep, sleep sleep
Sleep
They want to watch, to watch each other
Sleep, sleep, sleep

You are so sweet
You are so sweet

(Her solo)

I'm walking through the city
Like a drunk, but not
With my slip showing a little
Like a drunk, but not
And I am one of your people
But the cars don't stop
And I am one of your people
But the cars don't stop
And it's been a long time since before I've been touched
Now I'm getting touched all the time
And it's only a matter of whom
And it's only a matter of when

An addiction to hands and feet-
There's a meat market down the street
The boys and girls watch each other eat
When they really just wanna watch each other sleep
There's a meat market down the street
The boys and girls watch each other eat
When they really just wanna watch each other

Sleep
They want to watch, to watch each other
Sleep, sleep, sleep
Sleep
They want to watch, to watch each other
Sleep, sleep, sleep
Sleep

They want to watch, to watch each other
They want to be watched, they want to be washed
They want to be touched, to touch each other
They want to sleep, they want to be slept
They want to watch, to watch each other
They want to be watched, they want to be washed
They want to be touched, to touch each other
They want to sleep, they want to be slept
They want to watch, to watch each other
They want to be watched, they want to be washed
They want to be touched, to touch each other
They want to sleep, they want to be slept
They want to watch, to watch each other
They want to watch, they want to be watched
To watch each other, to watch each other

Watch each other
Watch each other
Watch each other
Watch each other
Watch each other...

Many people may not know this about me, but I'm a huge soccer (football) fan. I don't follow the EPL or any of the leagues overseas, but I do follow FIFA and everything involved with that. Anyways, the United States, who just a few days ago no one though would be here, just upset the world number 1 team Spain, 2 nil, in the Confederation Cup semifinals, giving them a berth in the finals on Sunday. Get pumped, this is huge.

The Twitter Revolution
06/24/09 at 12:19 PM by Drew Beringer
I think it's quite amazing how twitter is being used by artists and bands to release the latest news. Forget Myspace, Facebook, email lists. The quickest way bands are reaching their fans with the latest news is through twitter. You don't have to have a computer with you anymore to update your fans, just a mobile phone and texting plan. Mayday Parade just announced their new album release date through twitter, Cobra Starship revealed their new album art. Say Anything discussed their new single and album on their twitter, while Tegan and Sara let fans know they were going into the studio to record their new album. Plus many other examples, it's really cool.

you know you made it when...
06/24/09 at 12:04 AM by Drew Beringer
haha, you know you have made it when press releases for upcoming albums use quotes from you that aren't even from a review. The press release for the new Alexisonfire album includes a quote from me, one I made in my blog a few weeks ago. haha.

A Portion of AOF Press ReleaseALEXISONFIRE have announced they’ll stream their new album OLD CROWS / YOUNG CARDINALS in its entirety today directly via the Vagrant Records site: http://aof.vagrant.com. The album premiere will be available to U.S. residents only.

For their new album-- out on June 23 on Vagrant Records (U.S.A.) and on Dine Alone and RoadRunner in the rest of the world--ALEXISONFIRE re-teamed with Julius Butty who also produced the group’s Crisis and Watch Out! discs.

OLD CROWS / YOUNG CARDINALS--the group’s fourth studio album and first in almost three years--is beginning to receive early acclaim.

Check out a few critical soundbites here:

“Alexisonfire’s Old Crows/Young Cardinals marks a major policy shift… …Pettit has traded his trademark shrieking for a gargling-with-gravel punk attack. It sounds like all those summers hanging at the cottage with Lemmy Kilmister and Lars Frederiksen finally made him realize there’s more than one way to blow out your vocal cords. That makes Old Crows/Young Cardinals a welcome reinvention, no matter how much you loved to shred your larynx by singing along to ‘Pulmonary Archery.’ “

--Mike Usinger, ALTERNATIVE PRESS (July 2009 issue)





“Hardcore punk, post-hardcore, hardcore metal... On their fourth full length overall, 2009's Old Crows/Young Cardinals, you get a bit of all three aforementioned styles, with a healthy dose of melody stirred into the sonic blender to boot. And this hodgepodge approach should certainly bring Alexisonfire some U.S. rock radio airplay (they already scored their breakthrough hit back home on their previous album, 2006's Crisis), especially such standout tracks as the leadoff single, ‘Young Cardinals,’ as well as the album-opening ‘Old Crows,’ ‘The Northern,’ and the surprisingly tranquil and sweetly sung album closer, Burial.’”

--Greg Prato, ALL MUSIC GUIDE, (June 2009)



“Old Crows/Young Cardinals is really good. It's fast and intense, Dallas sounds great, and it's just an in-your-face type of album. AOF fans will love…”

--Drew Beringer, ABSOLUTE PUNK.NET, album preview (June 2009)




“Alexisonfire have clearly finally reached the place they have been driving to for so long: the perfect blending of hardcore, hard rock and the myriad influences that the quintet draw on--from Nick Drake and Jeff Buckley to Johnny Cash, Sigur Ros, Mogwai, At The Drive In, Radiohead…So much more than a good genre band: they truly own their sound. Two thirds of the way in, the track [‘Midnight Regulation’] is really going for it with Dallas/George interplay and a gorgeously distorted guitar-line ripping through.”

--James Gill, METAL HAMMER, June 2009)

haha thanks for stealing my picture
06/22/09 at 03:06 PM by Drew Beringer
First, this site sucks, homophobia is never cool. Second, thanks for stealing my picture of my All Time Low advance. haha.

Also, my summer has been made this past week with the new Set Your Goals and the aforementioned All Time Low albums. Man, albums like these always remind me why I fell in love with the pop-punk genre.
