Belvedere are working on new music.
We’re stoked to get up a brand new site for the band. We’ve been a little quiet in the show department over the last few months. I’ve been back in school learning how to do stuff like this nice little website. The good news to that is we’ve been jamming pretty steadily and have written a few new songs. We’ll have updates on what that’s turning into soon. We’ll also be playing a show in Calgary on November 26th. Be sure to check out all the tabs on the site and send us a message on the “contact” section if you have any comments, or want to ask us questions. We’ll try to answer as soon as we can. Also be sure to welcome Casey Lewis to the band. A few of...

Well, we've made it to 60 episodes of the AbsolutePunk Podcast. Damn. This episode also feels like the first in a while where the whole gang's back together. Topics this week include: some alcohol talk and favorite drinks, follow-up on how CD decluttering is going, diving into the whole process of looking for new staff members and the state of online writing/publishing. We finish this episode talking about how the end of the year is coming and how we need to start preparing for putting together our lists and making sure we don't forget anything and we touch on our thoughts on 10 year album shows as well. The episode can be streamed and/or downloaded below.

Want to make sure you never...

Shaun Ossei-Owusu, writing for the Huffington Post:
Examining ODB, a fascinating personage in and of himself, also offers insights into institutions and logics that help shape black sociopolitical life -- specifically, the welfare state and the criminal justice system on the one hand and, not unrelated, distrust of government and racial suspicion on the other. Although Dirt's drug use and suspected mental illness obscured these insights, a critical inquiry into his life and archive highlights some of the unpleasant features of American race relations; it also illustrates the point that some of the most elucidating case studies are of those that we commonly dismiss as eccentric or...

Radiohead are currently rehearsing and recording their follow up to King of Limbs.
It always feels when we start up like we still don’t know really how to do it, and we don't know quite what to do. 'Looking down avenues' is a very kind way of putting the kind of fumbling that we do, mainly because every time we try and do it like the last time – because that worked – it never seems to work. So we talk about different approaches and we’re currently trying a bunch out.

Starting December 4th, streaming services and downloaded tracks will factor into Billboard's weekly album chart.
SoundScan and Billboard will count 1,500 song streams from services like Spotify, Beats Music, Rdio, Rhapsody and Google Play as equivalent to an album sale. For the first time, they will also count “track equivalent albums” — a common industry yardstick of 10 downloads of individual tracks — as part of the formula for album rankings on the Billboard 200.
