The Streets Cover Elton John

We announced the forthcoming Radio 1 Established 1967 comp last week via Lily Allen’s Pretenders remake.

New Twang – “Either Way (Mike Skinner & Pro Green Remix)”

The Twang haven’t found much love stateside, but our NME subscriptions indicate they are VERY IMPORTANT! Though the band’s “swaggering, big-hearted mischief” struck us as a tad sappy on first listen a few months ago, they’ve put out a remix of “Either Way” with Mike Skinner which of course has us listening.

Stereogum At Bonnaroo Pt. 2

Hey kids. Lots of craziness since my last Bonnaroo update. Let’s start with Friday afternoon. A press conference with Jim James, Lewis Black, Ben Folds, Robert Randolph and Jack from Steel Train featured lots of left-field questions (i.e., “What’s your stance on stem cell reserarch?”), but Lewis Black was hilarious.
