To many, the break-up of The Libertines six years ago was an overwhelming disappointment and left an immense hole in the then large resurgence in the British indie rock climate. After two instant-classic records, Up The Bracket and The Libertines, the band was making huge strides in the post-punk and garage rock revival scenes. Despite the band’s critical and commercial success, however, tensions between the two frontmen, Carl Barât (vocals/lead guitar) and Pete Doherty (vocals/rhythm guitar) as well as Doherty’s obvious addictions led to their abrupt demise.
Following six years and a slew of solo/side-projects from all four members of the band, The Libertines have decided to make amends and reunite. First on the agenda are highly anticipated special appearances at the Reading and Leeds Festivals. Lets hope Carl and Pete keep it copacetic this time and old Petey stays clean (ha, right).
It can be said, without a shred of doubt, that Godspeed You! Black Emperor was one of the most influential instrumental rock bands. To this day, the Canadian post-rock pioneers (active during 1994-2003), are widely regarded as a seminal symbol of the genre and tremors of their style and innovation are felt to this day.
Shockingly, the band has abruptly announced an end to their almost decade-long hiatus and will be getting a running start with a headlining/curating slot on the Nightmare Before Christmas event presented by All Tomorrow’s Parties in Minehead, England on December 3-5. The lineup also includes: Bardo Pond, The Ex, Deerhoof, Tim Hecker, Mike Watt and Scout Niblett. According to the band’s announcement, a slew of European/U.K. dates and a small 9-date trek through America are also on the horizon.
Ann Arbor native Andrew Mayer Cohen, better known as Mayer Hawthorne is steadily on his way to becoming a household name. The minstrel of soul turned heads with his breakthrough debut record, A Strange Arrangement, and as a result, has already circumnavigated the globe sharing his retro-inspired brand of pop with sold-out crowds.
To commemorate the end of his two-month U.S. tour (which wraps up at The Warfield Theater on April 15th with indie juggernauts, Passion Pit), record label Stones Throw, Bay area street clothiers HUF and design artist Freegums have collaborated on an exclusive tee and USB drive pack to be sold at a special release party. The heart-shaped USB drive comes pre-loaded with Mayer Hawthorne’s cover of Tony Bennett’s classic, “I Left My Heart in San Francisco”.
Peep the music video for the track here:

It’s no surprise that Barcelona-based synthpop band Delorean are garnering great attention with the anticipation of their full-length record Subiza. The Spanish collective made huge waves with their last release, the Ayrton Senna EP, which showcased their unique blend of dreampop and electronica and are currently touring with Miike Snow throughout North America.
