The Muslims are on tour

I heard about this cool San Diego, CA based band during SXSW this year. They are very Velvet Underground-esque, only a bit more accessible to today's generation.

they will be playing the following dates:

June 13 @ Cake Shop (w. The Browns, So So Glos)
June 15 @ the Dunderdon store in Chinatown/SoHo (w. The Browns)
June 16 @ Mercury Lounge - 8pm (w. Afterhours, Young Punx)
June 17 @ The Market Hotel (The Browns, So So Glos)
June 18 @ DC9 Washington DC
June 19 @ Santos' Party House (Vice Party)
June 20 @ Union Pool (w. Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson, Suckers, Wild Yaks)
June 21 @ The Castle In Hell (House show w. HTR)
July 1 @ THE CASBAH w/ The Modey Lemon San Diego, California
July 2 @ THE ECHO w/ The Modey Lemon Los Angeles, California
July 24 @ THE KNOCKOUT w/ Crocodiles San Francisco, California

In other, less happy news, R Kelly was acquitted for the whole child pornography thing. wow, just wow.

Also, I am pretty upset with Rolling Stone's new cover
don't get me wrong, I think Chris Martin and/or the rest of Coldplay belong in the spotlight right now, seeing as how their new record is pretty damn great and they're a huge band, but I hate that RS called Martin a "Rock G-d". they seem to be throwing that term around pretty loosely lately.

On a brighter note, Beck's new record, Modern Guilt, will be out July 7th! the track list is as follows:

“Gamma Ray”
“Modern Guilt”
“Soul of a Man”
“Profanity Prayers”

two consecutive days of awesome records (Como Te Llama comes out on the 8th). sweetness.

well it's just Julian Casablancas who has teamed up with Santogold and N.E.R.D (Pharrell Williams' band) for a song for Converse, but it sounds good for a shoe commerical

It's called "My Drive Thru", listen to it HERE

Pharrell may or may not produce the Strokes' 4th record. he did a great job with The Hives' Black and White album.

read the full story on NME

it vaguely reminds me of Spoon's Don't You Evah. I really like it, it's quite dancable (they do say "wanna dance" seven hundred times, after all) and Jules' vocals are, of course, ace.

the new AC/DC record is going to be sold exclusively at Wal-Mart. I am in utter shock at this despicable move by a band which I previously considered above such stupidity. read Spin's story here.

Radiohead has a new song called Super Collider, which they played in Dublin
listen below:

I like it. a lot. it's very soothing, like most of Radiohead's songs

Meg White joined Jack on stage during a Raconteurs performance on Saturday. read NME's story HERE
The Raconteurs are still on tour for Consolers of the Lonely.

Sigur Ros is streaming their entire new record HERE, and I absolutely love it. gorgeous, gorgeous music. the record is available for preorder on their website. do indulge yourself.

Led Zeppelin made a surprise appearance during a Foo Fighters show on Saturday. read the full story HERE

Bob Dylan has added some more tour dates

Chris Martin of Coldplay said his band was "only the seventh best in the world". hahahhaha! oh man, I didn't realize what a prat the guy was. Coldplay is a good band. not great, just good. they, obviously, don't think so. hahaha

enjoy some HIGH QUALITY MUSIC below.
