Arctic Monkeys have been hard at work on a new album lately. During some recent live shows they have showed off a couple of the new tracks, but today they released the first official single off this mystery record. This song is called “Do I Wanna Know?” and it’s a smooth, sexy jam. Arctic Monkeys are still looking to blow up here in North America. Dont get it twisted, they are well respected here…but not nearly as big as they are in the UK…where later this month they will HEADLINE Glastonbury, alongside The Rolling Stones and Mumford & Sons.

Yes, you’re right, this song from The Postal Service DID come out months ago. Heck, it was recorded a DECADE ago as part of the sessions for the duo’s lone album “Give Up”.

Walking Dead but PG-13. World War Z is the summer movie of the year (by far). After disappointments like The Hangover Part III, Iron Man 3, and recent releases of The Purge and This is The End, it’s refreshing to see a film that holds your interest from beginning to end. This is your true ‘must-see’ end of the world movie.
Watch U2 perform their classic protest song “Sunday Bloody Sunday.” Larry Mullen, Jr. has said that the song is less about the specific event, Bloody Sunday, and more about the need to continue to combat violence and hatred all over the world.
Nobody rocked the Craft Beer Festival as long as SONiC did on Friday. We were trying to hook you up with SONiC BOOM tickets from the time you started pouring in (beer joke) at 3pm till the time you were kicked out at last call (10p).
It only took 2 weeks and $600 for Nirvana to write and record their debut album Bleach. 24 years ago today Bleach was released on Sub Pop and funded by Jason Everman. You’ll see him on the album cover and see his name listed in the credits as a ‘guitarist’ but he doesn’t actually play a single note on the record. Described as ‘negative and bleak’ Bleach remains Sub Pop’s best selling album to date.
