Listen to New Soundgarden song Live To Rise: Antiquiet has the new Soundgarden song “Live To Rise” (which will be included on “The Avengers” soundtrack) available to listen to here. While even the best Soundgarden albums had a few clunkers (“Kickstand” anyone?), this one seems fairly devoid of energy or inspiration. I’m optimistic […]
Killing Joke 2012 Album preview: Update:* I’ve recently posted a review of this album. Check it out here. It’s rare that a band more than 30 years into their career creates new material that is as strong as their initial work, but Killing Joke still appears to be firing on all cylinders. One of the […]
Okay, so we’re in the final stretch of the best film soundtracks of all time. Assuming, you’ve read the 1st 2 entries (which you recap here and here), then off we go. And remember any click on image will take you to Amazon if you’re looking to add one to your collection. These to […]
Okay, well here we are for round 2 of my picks for the TOP 30 best film soundtracks of all time (you can find part 1 here) Let’s begin. 18. “Lost In Translation” I can’t attest to being a huge fan of Sofia Coppola or of this film. I didn’t dislike it mind […]
Recently, I had the pleasure of watching the film “Drive”. I loved it’s retro feel which hearkened back to the late 70’s/early 80’s feel of Michael Mann’s “Thief” and Walter Hill’s “The Driver”. After watching the film I immediately downloaded the soundtrack. “Drive” is one of those films that is so synonymous with it’s score […]
This past Christmas I got 2 gifts that were at the top of my Amazon wish list: The landmark albums by The Smashing Pumpkins, Gish and Siamese Dream, in their remastered deluxe edition formats. Upon opening the box sets, looking at all the postcard style images from the original album art, the lengthy liner notes, […]
So a few weeks ago my wife and I had the opportunity to take a brief vacation. She’d always wanted to go to San Francisco, and we had friends there, so it seemed like a good choice. I’ve visited San Fran several times throughout the years and it always makes for a great getaway. So […]
Last night The Cult played SXSW and performed for free. Since I live in Austin, I kinda felt like they did it just for me. I am, for the record one of the biggest Cult fans out there. Now I don’t think I’m a fanatic…I don’t travel city to city and own every bootleg […]
The Kids These Days With Their (lack of) Rock & Roll… My midlife crisis moment has arrived. But it’s not really what I thought it would be. I’m not splurging on a sports car or growing out a ponytail, or rocking an earring (did that the 1st time around thanks). Nope, my mid-life crisis is […]
