Fellow Buzzmedia music site SPIN have got a stream off the upcoming Rage Against The Machine re-release, XX. We’ve got it embedded here, but you can still enter to win a free copy of the deluxe box set here. The song, “Mindset’s a Threat”, is clearly from before the original demo, as the lyrics reference the time of the early 90s. It still features a crazy guitar solo though.

Well color me unsurprised, here. Previously, TMZ had two run ins with Rage Against The Machine bassist Tim Commerford, both in random Los Angeles parking lots, in which Tim basically insinuated (in a joking way) that a new RATM album may have been in the works. Now, Tom Morello has used his swift foot of rebellion to crush our hopes of a new album.
He said the band has “no plans beyond” their upcoming re-release of their debut album, this time called XX for its twentieth anniversary. He told that to Billboard, who also asked if the …
TMZ has a habit of running into alternative rock bassists in random parking lots in Los Angeles. I really can’t explain how or why (seriously, it’s a big city, why would you run into a celebrity in a parking lot multiple times?), but this is the second time in less than two months that they’ve caught up with Tim Commerford of Rage Against the Machine and tried to pry him about a new album.
Tim Commerford when asked if they were working on a new album this time? “Definitely, maybe, yeah. Anything is possible.” The interviewer than asks him about …
Twenty years ago, alternative band Rage Against the Machine made waves with their self titled debut. Now they are getting an extreme re-release of it, calling it XX, in three formats: one as a CD with three bonus tracks, one as a double CD with a DVD, and one with a box set of both along with the vinyl, a picture disc, and a forty page booklet. Chuck D of Public Enemy also wrote new linear notes. Dorks like me everywhere are excited.
In the two disc version of the CD, disc one is the CD with three bonus …
The xx were filmed back in January at KEXP studio performing their live set and it has just now been released for the public. This is about as great of an experience as you can get up close to the band, besides the obvious concert setting.
The group perform songs from the new album, Coexist, out now through XL Recordings so be sure to head through the jump and get lost in the sounds. The xx dominate this entire set.
London’s own The xx have partnered up with the good people at NPR to stream their entire album, Coexist, and it is simply amazing.
Coexist has a official release date of September 11 through XL Recordings and can be pre-ordered right here.
Coupled with unmatched songwriting and catchy melodies, this album holds this key to what we have been waiting for in 2012. Please head through the link provided to listen to this incredible release from The xx and let Under The Gun Review know if this blew you out of the water.
London based indie pop group The xx played a new song live at Primavera Sound 2012 recently, and we have a live video of it here. The song titled “Friction” will be coming off of their new album Coexist, which comes out on September 10, 2012. Sometimes live amateur videos are pretty low quality and aren’t really worthy of sharing, but this video has suprisingly good sound. The xx broke into the scene with their album titled xx, which came out in 2009 on Young Turks.
You can check out the video after the break, but make sure …
