Monday nights mean New Music Discovery on XPN! As we all do our best to hold on to summer, I’ve got some tunes that’ll sound great coming out of your car speakers. We’ll hear a new synth-rock band from Oakland called Waterstrider (one of my new favs), a Philly favorite, Shark Tape, channel The Replacements, and Bon Iver lending his one-of-a-kind vocals to an infectious new song from Francis & The Lights.  Two hours of new music starts at 8pm tonight, here’s a sample of what else we’ll spin…

Vinyl vs. Digital: Which Sounds Better?

Source: Rock On Philly

Featured Image by Gavin St. Ours

We’ve all heard it from that one friend who is a die-hard fan: that records sounds better, and that analog is better than digital. Ask anyone who loves to shop for vinyl and they will surely volunteer some personal intuitive feedback regarding their favorite records.

As records were standard for most of the 1900’s, it’s not terribly shocking that music tailored in its production to be heard through a record player would continue to be enjoyed today. The same can be said for albums recorded for mono before stereo sound was commercialized around 1957-58. The opportunity to listen ...

Beyonce’s new album ‘Lemonade’ is vital, and maybe her best yet

Source: Brooklyn Vegan

If you’re still thinking Beyonce is too pop or not authentic due to working with songwriters, you’re boring and you’re missing out on one of the most vital artists around. She made the jump from Singles Artist to Album Artist with 2011’s retro-soul-inspired 4, she blew that album away and turned “alternative R&B” into “mainstream R&B” with 2013’s self-titled LP, and it’s quite possible that the newly-released Lemonade blows its predecessor away as well…

The Dead Weather are Reborn on Dodge and Burn

My first reaction to The Dead Weather‘s new album Dodge and Burn was, “Wait, I don’t have to be subscribed to TIDAL to listen to this?”

You can’t blame me. After announcing their third album, the garage rock supergroup shared certain songs from Dodge and Burn exclusively through paid services like TIDAL and the Third Man Records Vault. Jack White – the outspoken, prolific talent who brought us The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, and of course, The Dead Weather – has fervently ...

Surfers’ Choice: The Innovation and Triumph of Dick Dale

In 1962, an album was released that encapsulated a sound that became known as the “surf/rock” sound and, through its success, introduced this sound to Middle America in the early 1960’s, thanks in part to the popularizing of televisions in homes and portable transistor radios in the previous decade, allowing music to be heard everywhere in the nation. Dale and his band performed the song “Misirlou” on the Ed Sullivan Show.  Dick says “I still remember the first night we played it. I changed the tempo, and just started cranking on that mother.  And, it ...

Best of The Dead Weather: Supergroup Announces Third Album

Source: Rock On Philly

In April, Jack White announced that he would be taking an indefinite break from performing after the tour for his second solo album, Lazaretto. Though it may have seemed like Jack White would retreat back to his Nashville home and enjoy whatever level of obscurity is attainable for a musician as iconic as he is, White just can’t stay away from his music for long. Yesterday, The Dead Weather announced that their third LP Dodge & Burn will be released in September via Jack White’s label Third Man Records. For this supergroup composed of Jack White, Alison Mosshart (The ...
