A piano romp from Cold War Kids…I’ll take it! It’s the lead single called “Miracle Mile,” which takes it up another couple of notches with a killer hook, and cool riff to fit oh so snug against the piano. Look for the track on their fourth studio album, Dear Miss Lonely Hearts, on April 2nd on Downtown Records. The band also announced dates to go with it, including a 5/23 date at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco.
Tomorrow night (1/11) Sacramento’s Musical Charis and Autumn Sky will be joining forces for a 21an older show at Harlow’s at 9pm. They just released a cool collaboration between both called “Calling Out,” which they are sure to play tomorrow night. Tickets at $7 in advance/$10 at the door.

If you haven’t heard of the Brooklyn band The Men yet, you should put them on your radar if you are into rock. We aren’t talking watered down Nickelback either. These guys lunge right at you, as you’ll hear from their new single, “Electric.” It’s off of their forthcoming album New Moon due in March. Heavy guitar is prominent throughout. Hopefully this record will be as good as their first three.
The new Telekinesis track is mostly reverbed vocals, piano and the soft computerized bass drum thumping along, which is a departure from the straight ahead pop/rock sound that we are typically accustomed to from the band. Maybe that’s because it’s actually under the Telekinesis moniker Dormarion as frontman Benjamin Michael Lerner’s project. Touring under their normal band name, they will drop by San Francisco’s Bottom Of The Hill on April 24th. Stream the track below.
It’s been too long waiting around for Suede to release new material, but we finally get it in the nice new track, “Barriers.” There is a new album coming that will apparently be called “Bloodsports” sometime in March. The good news about a decade long wait? The record should be a good one, as they have had all the time in the world to work on it. via COS
As he has been doing this year, Jack White has taken an all male band for half of his set, and then brought out his all female band for his second part. Many highlights on his appearance on the Austin City Limits show on Saturday, mixing in solo material from Blunderbuss to sprinkling in some White Stripes too. You can watch the whole thing below.
