Smoking Popes Tour Dates 2011

Chicago's own Smoking Popes have announced tour dates in support of their album This is Only a Test, which will be released March 15th.

This is Only a Test marks the bands' first concept album, exploring the theme of the life of a teen. Singer/Guitarist Songwriter Josh Caterer explains, “When I first got the idea to write from a teenage perspective, the individual songs came really quickly. I wrote a song a day for five days. That’s half the album in less than a week. I never write that fast! Each song stands alone as a snapshot from this kid's life. The story doesn't unfold like a narrative. It's more like a collage."

Smoking Popes New Tour Dates:
Sat- Mar 19 The Sail Inn Tempe AZ
Sun- Mar 20 Casbah San Diego CA
Tue- Mar 22 Slidebar Fullerton CA
Wed- Mar 23 Key Club West Hollywood CA

New Album From The Kills

The Kills new album Blood Pressure will be released April 5 in the U.S. and April 4th throughout the rest of the world. They're taking over and taking no prisoners.

Blood Pressure was recorded in Michigan at Key Club. Jamie Hince produced while Bill Skibbe co-produced. (It's an arduous process kids, don;t try it at home. Ok do). Tour dates will be announced shortly, as opposed to longly. For more information, such as the tracklisting, clickenzy here.

The Ongoing Brilliance of Ken Stringfellow

Sources say there will be a new album from Ken Stringfellow under the collaborative moniker The Disciplines. Apparently Stringfellow and mates are still working on the final touches.
The release is titled Virgins of Menace and it will be available February 15 in the U.S. and March 7 elsewhere. If I get some MP3s for download I'll post them as soon as I can. Meanwhile check out the band's website 'round about here. There is a stream of the single "Kill the Killjoy" and it rocks - needless to say.

Duran Duran All You Need Is Now

I have to say I am pleasantly surprised!

New Anna Waronker Strikes a Personal Note

Anna Waronker is releasing both a stripped down 4 track EP and a new full length album, California Fade, on the wonderful indie label - Five-Foot-Two Records. Waronker says of the EP, “I wanted to show an even more different side of myself on the EP, believe it or not, the lyrics feel even more personal than ever before.”

The Anna Waronker EP will be a special bonus in the upcoming expanded vinyl edition of California Fade. Only two tracks from the EP, “This Place” and “I Never Want To See Your Face Again,” will be available digitally as bonus tracks to the digital download of California Fade. Waronker says of the new EP tracks, "Most of the songs on the EP are the first ones I had written for myself since my son was born and, since California Fade had been in the making for so long, I wanted to add something new to the mix. I think it’s a really good addendum to the record; it certainly is from a personal standpoint.”

Additionally, the EP's fourth track “Can You Feel My Love?” is the first recorded song from Anna Waronker and sister in law Charlotte Caffey’s Lovelace: A Rock Opera. The album features appearances by Steven McDonald, Pat Smear, Josh Klinghoffer, Joey Waronker, Smokey Hormel, Tanya Haden, Ryan MacMillan, and Gabe Witcher.

Th expanded, double LP package is available for pre-order at Waronker's webste and will be released February 8. Two tracks from the EP, “This Place” and “I Never Want To See Your Face Again,” will be available as bonus tracks to the digital download of California Fade via iTunes February 8th.

Duran Duran Anounces Video Contest To Promote New Album

Taken directly from the press release:

Filmmakers invited to create videos for all nine album tracks

When they first broke in the early 1980s, Duran Duran single-handedly transformed the music video from a gimmicky marketing tool into one of the music industry’s most valued assets. With exotic locations, beautiful girls and stunning special effects, Duran Duran took the visual imperatives of the New Romantic movement to another level. From the controversial video for “Girls on Film,” which was so risqué it was banned, to one of the most expensive music clips ever made, for “Wild Boys,” the band have always been at the forefront of the music video revolution.

Now, with their acclaimed 13th studio album ALL YOU NEED IS NOW, which hit #1 on the iTunes Album Chart in 15 countries upon its December 21st release exclusively via iTunes, the band continues to push the envelope, partnering with to give filmmakers around the world the chance to make music videos for the entire album.

Launched on December 21, 2010, to coincide with the album’s worldwide iTunes release, and closing on February 8, 2011, this unique contest encourages filmmakers from around the world to compete for a total prize pool of $45,000 ($5,000 for each of the nine songs on ALL YOU NEED IS NOW). Once the entries are in, five finalists will be selected for each song, chosen by Duran Duran and There will then be one grand-prize winner selected by the band for each track, and a compilation of the successful entrants will be released on DVD around the launch of the physical CD in early March 2011.

Duran Duran, a band with more era-defining songs to their name than most, have, on their extraordinary new album, reconnected with the sounds, textures, melodies and the lyrical evocation that first propelled them to the top of the charts the world over. The result, produced by Grammy Award winner Mark Ronson, already sounds like a classic. Director and Founder Mick Entwisle explains the competition further: “We consider it an honor and a privilege to be working with such a talented and iconic band. I grew up as part of the ‘MTV generation’, with hours spent in front of the TV watching music videos, and Duran Duran’s are some of the earliest I remember. So to now be working with them is pretty surreal. We’re obviously really delighted and I’m sure film makers will be just as excited to get such an amazing opportunity.”

“The standard of work being submitted to by their global network of directors is quite astonishing,” said Duran Duran keyboardist, Nick Rhodes. “And what is really fantastic about this whole project is that we are given access to talented film makers from around the world, whose work we might not otherwise get to hear about. ALL YOU NEED IS NOW has been a really enjoyable album to make – and we are extremely proud of it. We look forward to seeing how people interpret the songs and hope they have as much fun with this as we have.”

Duran Duran are the latest band to partner with, who also have a competition running at the moment with Röyksopp and have previously partnered with David Lynch, Alicia Keys, Moby, Band of Skulls, The Temper Trap, Booka Shade and UNKLE amongst others. provides a platform where filmmakers can compete to make the official music videos for featured artists and songs. It seeks to revolutionize the way artists connect and engage with their fans by allowing the global creative community to make and upload their own music videos for the world to watch, vote on and spread virally.

· Closes: Feb 8, 2011

Press and bio spiel:
Lady Lazarus (Savannah, Ga.) is the solo music project of Melissa Ann Sweat, a poet, writer, almost-journalist, almost-film student at Werner Herzog's Rogue School, and fine artist originally from San Jose, Calif. Melissa began her project in 2008 when she started teaching herself keyboard, and writing and recording songs in her San Francisco studio apartment. She has been an artist and writer nearly all her life and credits her fluidity in picking up songwriting to her long-time interest in writing poetry.

Shortly after Melissa began writing songs, she decided to pursue her creative interests as much as she could - she quit her job and took a train trip across the country (writing a novella in the process), then began working again part-time and writing and recording songs in her free time. Despite her very new foray into music, Lady Lazarus has been receiving some impressive local and national attention. Pitchfork recently review the Mantic track, "The Eye in the Eye of the Storm," writing "fans of shadowy dream-pop will be pleased to discover San Jose's Lady Lazarus... Her voice is lovely, and nothing is over-or undersold... [The music] makes this moment of uncanny stillness a shelter you want to stay inside. It's really slight, and more than ample."

This summer Lady Lazarus played Left Coast Live, a week long music festival in San Jose with Yo La Tengo headlining, and embarked on a small Western U.S. tour, the highlight of which was playing with A Hawk and a Hacksaw at The Process in Santa Fe. In mid-October, Melissa moved from her hometown of San Jose, Calif. to Savannah, Ga. where she is continuing to pursue her music, poetry, and fine art while exploring and being inspired by the region.
