It’s like the 2012 Where’s Waldo calendar where young, hip New Yorkers try to find themselves in the crowd in this trailer for LCD Soundsystem’s Shut Up and Play The Hits documentary about the band’s end. I wasn’t there, so instead of looking for myself and friends, I am just looking at James Murphy’s cute […]
It hasn’t even been a full day since At The Drive-In announced their 2012 reunion. But already everyone I know – people I never would’ve expected to listen to At The Drive-In – are freaking out about this. The band are breaking their decade-plus long hiatus, playing Coachella, and hopefully (fingers crossed) will play some […]

In the course of self-promoting (and flooding everyone’s Twitter feeds) Vasquez reached the Twitter daily post limit and is now in Twitter jail. But if you […]
Coming from a world of fanzines and hanging out with your favorite musicians for hours on end and moving into a decade-long stint as a host on a free form radiok station, it was really only a matter of time before Tom Scharpling created this: Low Times. The new podcast is all about long conversations […]
