Because we haven't heard a lot from Justin Timberlake lately, head to the replies to watch the superstar take five shots of tequila over the course of a 10-minute stretch on the Jonathan Ross Show, a British late-night program. It should be noted that he's playing three holes of mini-golf at the same time.
Twin Falls, the new project of Chris Carrabba and Suzie Zeldin, is changing its name to Twin Forks following a short-lived controversy over the moniker. A mere couple days ago, we reported that a UK artist who calls himself Twin Falls claimed that the new superband stole his identity. Okay. Way to be a good sport, Carrabba and Co. The band has also released a new song, which you can check out in the replies along with a statement from, um, Twin Forks. Now the only boring name-change whining we have to keep track of is The Story So Far v. The Story So Far.
If you were thinking you'd get to stream all of Paramore's new self-titled album in one sitting this coming Monday, think again. The band will be premiering the album over the course of four nights on its website. Four sides in four nights - starting this Monday. The band explains the details in a video in the replies.
A note on how we made the list: Albums got docked points if the artist went on to far greater achievements (which is why Please, Please Me and Greetings from Asbury Park, great as they are, didn't made the top ten); conversely, we gave a little extra recognition to great debut albums that the artist never matched (hello, Is This It and Illmatic!). We also skipped solo debuts by artists who were already in well-known bands, which is why you wonít see John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band or Paul Simon. We focused, instead, on debuts that gave you the thrill of an act arriving fully-formed, ready to reinvent the world...
Transit will be hosting a listening party for Young New England on Monday, April 1st, at the Hard Rock in Boston. The band will be playing the entire album. The event is free but limited to the first 200 people in line - more details are in the replies.
Humanism is something that lingered throughout the bandís work. I could write entire dissertations on Revenge, my favourite album, which for all its frenzied, explosive pace is at heart a response to the loss of the Waysí grandmother. The lyrics, music and imagery on that album seared right into my soul as soon as I heard it Ė itís like hearing a comic book on record, replete with all the atmospheric intensity and noir sophistication of visceral art. For me, nothing will ever top the guttural, breathtaking verse at the end of my favourite song, ďItís Not A Fashion Statement, Itís A Fucking...
Today we've got an exclusive premiere of Jamie Woolford's (The Stereo, Let Go) new video for "This Isn't Goodbye" -- you can check that out in the replies. Like what you hear? Pick up the album from Get Well Records.

The fellas in Late In The Playoffs have been grinding through the mid-west scene for quite some time, but now it's their chance to hit the national spotlight. The band is releasing a new album called Alive & On Your Own soon and we've got the exclusive first look at the band's music video for the single "Golden Years." You can watch them play this song live on tour in May with dates to be announced soon. Watch the video for "Golden Years" in the replies and leave your thoughts.
Remember the Death Cab For CutieThe Barsuk Years LP boxset you could have pre-order last winter? Well, after numerous delays, the sets have started to arrive at people's door steps. Sounds great, right? Well, it seems like more than half of the records in the set were mislabeled. Yikes. While no information or statement from Artist in Residence about the mishap has come forward yet, we'll be sure to update you on the situation when we can.
We have an EP coming out on Equal Vision Records soon. Itís like three songs. Heís happy and Iím really happy with it. When we started playing together again, it came about by me sending him demo songs. Since Iíve been home Iíve just been in the basement writing music. Ideas just keep pouring out. Some of them donít sound Reggie enough to be Reggie, so Iíd send them to Matt. Heíd send them back with vocals that would blow me away.
