This book takes vinyl lovers through the world of unique and creative vinyl records. With a departure from the simple beauty of a black vinyl record, this book shows various types of colored, shaped, and other interesting vinyl in its full, high resolution, life sized glory.

We premiered a Dakota Drive song a little while ago, and it was pretty well received. Today we've got another one for you - "He's Got Something Nobody Else Has" in the replies. It's a bit different from "Brothers & Sisters," as it's got no guest musicians, but it's just as good.

Weatherbox have dropped off their tour with Finch.
Itís with a heavy heart that we must announce that weíre pulling off theOfficialFinch/Maps & Atlases tour. For us itís a double-edged sword because the only way we could have possibly been kept from this tour is health and unfortunately thatís still the issue we face. Brian has been in and out of facilities since we returned in early August and unfortunately the symptoms he encountered back on tour continue to plague him. Weíd like to extend a huge apology to Finch, Maps & Atlases, all the fans and promoters, and anyone else affected by our cancellation. We believe more that anyone that the show must go on, but we simply cannot tour...

Kevin Devine wrote a piece for The Talkhouse about David Bazan's latest release and the touring life.
When that changed, and I was able to transition from part-timing to earning a living playing music, my fear of a life spent running face-first into an endless succession of self-constructed brick walls eventually straightened me out. This was a slow-dawning stroke of luck, because sober senses would be required to navigate an insane industry that was rapidly changing, too. Anyone I knew who was ďjustĒ a musician was predominantly maintaining that title by busting their ass on tour, selling their songs to car commercials or some combination thereof.
