The comeback is real: vinyl now makes up about 3.5% of album sales -- still not a huge number in the scheme of things, but significantly larger than the 0.2% it was pulling in ten years ago.

Hozier – “Do I Wanna Know?” (Arctic Monkeys Cover)

Irish troubadour Hozier hit BBC's Live Lounge with a take on the Arctic Monkeys' AM highlight "Do I Wanna Know?" -- a tune also covered by Chvrches and Sam Smith.

Osheaga 2014: Lorde, The Replacements, HAIM, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, & More

More than most North American cities, Montreal gets it right when it comes to hosting music festivals. Fortunate enough to have a setting like Parc Jean-Drapeau, located in the heart of the city, a five-minute subway ride from downtown, the Canadian city is able to pull off a music-and-arts festival like Osheaga with relative ease.

Arctic Monkeys – “Snap Out Of It” Video

AM, the album that the Arctic Monkeys released last year, is the sort of album that refuses to get old; its economic grooves and old-school rock-star sneer are rare things in an era where the entire concept of rock stardom is just barely hanging on.
