Modest Mouse Are Reissuing Their First Two Albums

Modest Mouse have finally announced the release of an album – actually, two albums. Neither is the one they’ve been working on for a few years, though. They are reissues of the first two full-lengths, This Is a Long Drive for Someone With Nothing to Think About and The Lonesome Crowded West.

This move is unsurprising, given the reissues of The Moon & AntarcticaThe Fruit That Ate Itself, and Sad Sappy Sucker released over the last few years. These new reissues will be released by Isaac Brock’s Glacial Pace Recordings and Fat Possum. Accompanying each …

Unreleased Smashing Pumpkins Remix by P. Diddy Is Here

Almost two decades ago, P. Diddy, Puff Daddy, Puffy–whatever you want to call him–reportedly took his turn on two of Smashing Pumpkins‘ classic songs, “Perfect” and “Ava Adore.” The former was released shortly after they were announced. “Ava Adore,” on the other hand, has never seen the light of day. Until now.

This is how a remix should be done. Taking elements of a song, and enhancing them with some different ideas. Removing pretty much every guitar part and replacing them with a vibrant, celestial string section with the drum track, enhances this track to a new dimension. The …

Artery Recordings Welcomes For The Win

Artery Recordings has announced the signing of California pop-core outfit For The Win. The label will re-release the band’s most recent album, More Than You Know, this fall.

I had never heard of For The Win before a press release announcing their addition to Artery hit my inbox. Before I wrote this story I took fifteen minutes to experience More Than You Know and immediately two things become alarmingly clear: 1. Gang vocals will never die. 2. This band probably promotes itself as a cross between A Day To Remember and The Wonder Years. I’m not saying that is …

Pinback

Pinback Announce ‘Summer In Abaddon’ 10th Anniversary Tour Dates With Tera Melos

Indie rock got a prog update when Pinback first hit the scene in 1998. Fast forward to today and the San Diego dudes are still running fast, most recently having dropped the bright, upbeat Information Retrieved in 2012. Arguably their best album, however, is 2004′s Summer In Abaddon, an excellent showcase of Rob Crow’s distinct vocals and Armistead Burwell Smith IV’s status as one of the best modern bass players. To celebrate its 10th anniversary, Pinback are touring North America this fall with math rockers Tera Melos in tow.

To honor the record’s anniversary, Touch & Go is reissuing the …

Glastonbury Festival founder Michael Eavis said earlier this year that he was “sure” Led Zeppelin would play his festival one day. Now, guitarist Jimmy Page has responded to his comments and addressed the chances of the band headlining in the coming years when talking with BBC Radio 6 Music host Shaun Keaveny.

“I haven’t heard about anything since the 2007 O2 gig, but you never know do you,” said Page. “You never know what’s going to happen tomorrow, do you?” The band has carved a spot in music history as one of the most important rock bands not just for …

Stream the Deluxe Edition of American Football’s Self-Titled Album

American Football‘s 1999 self-titled album is something of a gem. It’s quiet, confrontational, and warm: the perfect gateway to your emotional core. The classic record will soon be available on May 20 in a deluxe edition format that includes live recordings, demos, and more, but now it’s time to stream that album in its weepy glory over at Pitchfork.

This deluxe edition will also include never-before-seen photos and new liner notes from the band available in the form of vinyl, CD, tape, or MP3 formats. Pre-order is still running through Polyvinyl Records if you have yet to order …
