A documentary about Luxury is up for funding on Kickstarter.
Sounding like Fugazi or Shudder to Think fronted by a younger, more vicious Morrissey, they were an anomaly, in Toccoa, or almost anywhere. They brought together such disparate influences that one could barely imagine them co-existing in a band, much less pulling it off as a thoroughly distinctive sound. The English melodicism laid on top of such pummeling instrumentation was a study in contrasts, but it was of a piece, as there was enough of the melodic in the instruments and enough brutality in the lyrics and vocal delivery that it hung together, just so. As singer, Lee Bozeman describes it, "I write these beautiful, nice...

Coming out of Houston, Fox & Cats are releasing a new album called Ampersand on May 12th. The band worked with Kory Gable and Travis Hill of The Looking Glass Studio (Punchline, I Call Fives). We are premiering a new song called "Black Hole" - give it a spin in the replies. The producers' influence definitely shows, as the chorus is backed by riffs in a way that doesn't sound far off of other pop-punk bands like I Call Fives. The song isn't exactly reinventing the wheel, but the guitar solo comes out of nowhere and adds a nice touch. Be on the look out for more from the band in the coming months.

Lucky Boys Confusion have three songs written for their new album.
When I moved from the suburbs to my new place in the city I found about 9 cassette tapes worth of songs I was working on in 05/06 for the album that was supposed to come after HTGOA. Yes, cassette tapes... maybe I was trying to be ironic. I've only been able to get through half a tape but it's crazy to listen to what I was thinking/feeling a decade ago!! I played the first song on the tape for Adam, he loved it and so did Jason and Ryan so it ended up as song 3 for these writing sessions!! Let's see what other jams I'm going to find in the next couple of weeks!!

Today is the day we wrap up our exclusive video series with Cartel performing acoustic tracks from Chroma. If you hit the replies you can find the band performing "Honestly," and if you missed any of the other videos I highly recommend checking them out. The band also recorded some songs from their other albums during these sessions and I've heard those will be released, along with this series, in some fashion for purchase in the near future. Don't forget that the band are heading out on a tour to support the 10 year anniversary of this album and you should probably make sure you grab it on vinyl as well.

Emily Zemler, writing for Relix, talks with Modest Mouse about their new album.
Ultimately, the reason Modest Mouse didnít spit out a new record three years ago is because the songs just werenít fully developed yet. The musicians didnít enter into the new music with any sort of intention or vision in mind, instead allowing the music to create itself along the way. In the early stages, Brock found himself interested in a certain type of song that he eventually dismissed.

Ben Aldridge has been tapped to star in Rivers Cuomo's upcoming sitcom.
The singer has been developing a TV series for Fox, "Detour," based around his experiences going to Harvard University after Weezer struck it big with 1994's self-titled debut. Cuomo's education ambitions were well covered at the time, but now his concept for the show appears to be gaining momentum -- it's now got a cast, according to Deadline Hollywood.

Canada has scrapped their work permit requirement for touring musicians.
Yesterdayís decision not only eliminated the LMO fee, it also did away with the work permit fee for touring acts. Lifting these fees provides much greater incentive for foreign acts to tour in Canada. It will be interesting to see if increased touring grows the live music market creates more opportunities for small Canadian acts to perform, ultimately leading to a bolstered Canadian music scene.
