Here’s “End Of The Line” from Sleigh Bells’ performance on last night’s Saturday Night Live:

London’s The Sun is reporting that The Stone Roses will announce their reunion , with full original lineup, at a press conference on Tuesday. From The Sun: “A source said: “It has been a tense few months putting the reunion together. A lot of issues had to be resolved and some seriously hard graft has […]

If you loved Keith Richards’ autobiography, Life, and wished there was a companion book by Mick Jagger…the next best thing is out this week.

Though I’ve seen […]

I first heard this song while listening to oOoOO’s excellent and eclectic FACT mix, and I have to say it’s been stuck in my head (and on repeat) ever since. I especially love the rolling, fuzzy bass and the instrumental break that’s reminiscent of Middle Eastern music in the best possible way. In the words of no […]
