B.o.B recently announced that he is going to embark on his first ever headlining tour, “Shooting For Stars”, starting at the end of this month.

We’re packing our bags and heading up to the beautiful town of Newport, Rhode Island for the Newport Folk Festival. This festival has never really been on my radar lately despite being one of the most influential festival in rock and roll history. [READ ON]

It just seems rational right? Arizona passes a law you don’t like, or aren’t supposed to like, so you as an artist should boycott the entire state to voice your opinion. Well, I don’t agree with that statement in the least. Grit your teeth and write a hateful comment if you must, but I’m an advocate for individual states’ rights and their ability to pass their own laws and enforce them.

James Milne, aka Lawrence Arabia, released his sophomore LP, Chant Darling, only a year ago, and has been touring like a madman as of late. You may not be familiar with Milne, but he has previously been linked to The Brunettes and Okkerville River.

The other, “Bloody Shins”, was one of the more popular tracks on his self-titled debut.
‘Buzzsessions’ is a live session series made by The Wild Honey Pie. With each new episode, we travel with a different band to a different part of New York City and record sometimes-intimate/sometimes-wild versions of two or three songs which are given away for free.

Bethany Cosentino’s adoration for her cat, weed and the hazy days of summer make for some amazing noise-pop tunes. The debut of Cosentino, and bassist, Bobb Bruno’s, full album, Crazy for You, on July 27, is one big, grungy, unfinished California daze.
