End Of The Road Festival 2010 In Photos

This past weekend Larmer Tree Gardens, near Salisbury, Wiltshire, hosted the fifth annual End Of The Road Festival.

Wilco, BSS, Sun Kil Moon To Play 2010 Olympics

Canada's known for indie rock, so makes sense you'll find plenty of homegrown talent (BSS, Stars) and international musicians (Wilco, Iron & Wine, Joan As Policewoman) near the slopes at Vancouver's Winter Olympics. More names at CoS. More »

ATP NY 2009: Wayne’s World

Our second year at Kutsher's was rainier than the first, but that didn't matter so much to us or, seemingly, the other attendees: If anything, this year felt more celebratory (and debauched) than 2008. You wouldn't be faulted for noting a certain hippie vibe. Visually, there were the tie-dyed shirts and hoodies (purchased at… More »

Iron & Wine Perform A New Song (And A New Order Song) For Jimmy Fallon

Iron & Wine's Around The Well collection came out yesterday, but instead of playing something from it on Fallon, Sam Beam, his sister Sarah, and pianist did a new track, "Godless Brother In Love." It has the same sort of pathos as the recently unearthed "Homeward These Shoes," but instead of disappearing after a… More »

The Soft Bulletin Turns 10

Though they're clearly still going strong, ten years ago yesterday Oklahoma's favorite sons released their ninth and generally speaking most beloved album The Soft Bulletin. It was the Flaming Lips' moody, poppy, deeply atmospheric followup to 1997's quadruple turntable adventure Zaireeka and it was followed by another critical and commercial success, 2002's Yoshimi BattlesMore »

Iron & Wine Offers Jay Leno His “Flightless Bird, American Mouth”

Last January we saw Sam Beam perform "Flightless Bird, American Mouth" by his lonesome. A year later, he's reprising The Shepherd's Dog closer on Leno with band in tow. If you haven't seen Twilight it might seem strange that he's making the Late Night rounds for an album that came out in the… More »

SP20 Happened This Weekend

We've been telling you about Sub Pop's 20th Anniversary and attendant celebration party for a while now. This past weekend SP20 up and happened, and modern Sub Poppers like Iron & Wine, Constantines, and Fleet Foxes graced the stage along with more historical acts like the Vaselines, Seaweed and the Fluid (and… More »

SP20: Sub Pop’s 20th Anniversary Benefit Festival Partial Lineup Announced

We mentioned Sub Pop's 20th Anniversary a ways back -- well, it's officially time to party (especially if you live in the Pacific Northwest). The rumors have been circling the web, and now we have official details about SP20, a two-day benefit festival at Marymoor Park in Redmond, WA (7/12 & 7/13). There's also… More »

They've confirmed Lez Zeppelin, but not Led Zeppelin. Though Robert Plant will show up to shuffle along with Alison Krauss.

New Live Iron & Wine – “Flightless Bird, American Mouth”

One of the most heart (and politically) achey songs on The Shepherd's Dog is closer, "Flightless Bird, American Mouth": Lost innocence, a fat cat, a grounded eagle. As we mentioned while getting premature on the album, Iron & Wine live can be a sketchy affair if he's backed by that Grateful Dead-style band, so… More »

New Iron & Wine Video – “Boy With A Coin”

The excellent outing from Sam Beam this year isn't topping year-end lists lke maybe we thought upon premature pontification (but we haven't seen the Gummys results yet have we, oh suspense), but the LP still stands tall these months later, and "Boy With A Coin"'s "African sounding guitar thing" remains a beautiful, bona… More »

Radiohead.tv DJ Sets

Radiohead.tv brought us heads in boxes, Björk and Smiths covers, a live "Reckoner," and that surreal have-we-all-gone-deaf performance, among sundry other goodies ... like those DJ sets. When we live blogged the event, we were particularly taken by the spinning: Thom spasmodic with !!!, M.I.A., Burial (which Ed plays, too), etc. And it wa… More »

Iron & Wine’s The Shepherd’s Dog Cover

Sam Beam's latest is a brilliant collection of muddy ambiance and earthen largess, so the album cover floating around the net seemed to fit, sorta; a little less-than-stellar, but hey it looked woodsy and Beam's got beard, so whatever. Turns out that was all a sham, perpetrated by some avid, amateur, Iron-inspired artiste. More »

Iron & Wine Covers Radiohead

No surprise that "No Surprises" is shaping up to be one of OK Computer's most covered tracks; in addition to being unbelievably gorgeous, its spare and relatively imitable Yorke melody make it a top rate candidate for homage. This past month we brought you two -- the ethereal tribute by Marissa Nadler and the… More »
