    • Justice League 3001 #1
      Justice League 3001 is a blast from the past, set in the future. Veteran DC Comics readers old enough to remember the Justice League International series of the late 1980s—or those who bought the reprinted, collected trades much more recently—surely recall the light-hearted, humorous take on the universe's greatest heroes employed by writing duo Keith G […]
    • Run the Jewels Announce Beats 1 Radio Show, First Episode to Air Tonight

    • Martian Manhunter #1
      For all his manifold powers—strength, intangibility, shape-shifting, flight, telepathy, and on and on—J'onn J'onzz, aka the Martian Manhunter, is one of DC's more unfortunately overlooked heroes. Frequent Justice League stalwart (and the eternal voice of reason in the fantastic Justice League cartoon of the early 2000s), J'onn doesn' […]
    • Watch: LA Priest – “Learning to Love” Video
      LA Priest, the new solo project of former Late of the Pier frontman Sam Dust, released his debut album Inji earlier this week via Domino. In honor of that he's shared a video for one of the more electronic/dancier tracks on the record, "Learning to Love." 
    • Tame Impala - The Under the Radar Cover Story Bonus Q&A
      Kevin Parker can't take a compliment. He has just offered me his creative philosophy, explaining how artists are at their best when they move away from the parts of their craft that they've already mastered and move toward the parts that remain just beyond their reach.
    • Listen: Under the Radar’s Weekly Playlist With Beach House, Prince, Crystal Castles, & Blood Orange
      Welcome to Under the Radar's Weekly Playlist, where we compile the best tracks to debut online in the last week (or thereabouts).

Today we're premiering video of one song from the show, "An Illustration of Loneliness (Sleepless in NY)." The whole show goes live on Monday, July 6, at

    • Premiere: Wolf Colony - 'Run' July 3, 2015
      Check it out now...Wolf Colony is an electro-pop singer with a difference. There's a masked quality here, but in his image and in the music. Glistening production allied to a sweet pop flair, Clash is able to premiere the video for 'Run'. Shot in Paris and directed by the French director Franck Gomez, you can tune in below. Buy Clash Magazine […]
    • Premiere: ADM.SKI.XXX x Lee 'Scatch' Perry ft. MC Wildflower - '3STEP4EVER' July 3, 2015
      Check it out now...The sun is shining, weather is free... Lee 'Scratch' Perry is in town. The reggae icon - who produced Bob Marley, so that's an apt quote, fact fans - is due to appear in London at the screening of a new documentary about his life and work. 'Lee Scratch Perry's Vision Of Paradise' will air tomorrow (July 4th) a […]
    • Until The Ribbon Breaks - A Lesson Unlearnt July 3, 2015
      An impressive creative statement...An inspiring, essential and powerful debut, Until The Ribbon Breaks are a band who seek deeper, transformative passion, and revive all who listen with the ability to internalise their music with depth and redemption. Pscyoanalyst D.W Winnicott believed that artists possess souls driven by the tension between the desire to c […]
    • Mixtape: MIAMIGO - 'Songs To Dance Alone To' July 3, 2015
      For a slightly more melancholy weekend...So, that's the weekend. For many, it'll be party central. For those less lucky, it'll no doubt be a fairly maudlin time - time spent alone, time spent secluded. If so, then keep reading, because MIAMIGO know your pain. The band's new EP 'Hard To Love' is sublime noir pop, as tasteful as i […]
    • Premiere: In-Flight Safety - 'Destroy' July 3, 2015
      Canadian rockers return...In-Flight Safety like to think big. The indie rockers have an epic swathe cut across them, a sense of grandeur which overawes. New track 'Destroy' unfurls at its own pace, akin to early Interpol or even The National. Out on July 24th, the noir-etched songwriting comes equipped with a new video. Airing for the first time on […]
    • Lockah - It Gets More Cloudy... July 3, 2015
      ...brightly lit purpose, comfort and joyLockah's weather report is the sound of many a televised 80s prom at the moment when the photo is fading or an American Dream being realised. Bold synth strokes, slapped bass and fast fingered pop dexterity are obvious pointers towards a maximalist's dream; Tom Banks' consolidating of last year's […]
    • Matrixxman - Homesick July 3, 2015
      ...a taskmaster of metronomic tech-house and technoBreaking free from dodging bullets in slo-mo, the scientifically minded Matrixxman - real name Charles Duff - is a taskmaster of metronomic tech-house and techno, and pressurised dramas caught from light years away. Atmospherically Duff can be exceptional, with widescreen visions trying to keep the Motor Cit […]
    • Premiere: Jack Grace - 'Hills' July 3, 2015
      Soul meets footwork...The frenetic percussion effect of footwork is allowing fresh ideas to seep out of electronic music. Sydney producer Jack Grace is a case in point. Ramping up his tempos, the artist sets this against of soulful samples to craft something which has a keen sense of melancholy. New cut 'Hills' is a wonderful evocation of his artis […]
    • Premiere: MAGS - 'Roots' July 3, 2015
      Sierra Leone born, London based... hugely talentedBy the time MAGS hit her teens she'd already seen more than most people should see in a lifetime. Brought up in Sierra Leone, her family were forced to flee when she was just six years old. Coming of age in a London environment both thrilling and hostile, she was surrounded by all manner of influences. S […]
    • Premiere: Ten Benson - 'Mud Man' July 3, 2015
      They're back...Ten Benson are a name that has been sorely missed. The band haven't played a London show in five years, with fans waiting an extremely long time for new material. That's all about to change, though, with new single 'Mud Man' due to arrive via Ditto Music on August 7th. Due to play a live show at London venue the Lexing […]

Five Cool Ones: Five Artists that Follow The Falcon’s Nest on Twitter

Posted by falconi5 on February 10, 2014

twitterOne of the great things about social media is the ability to expose yourself to musical acts from all over the globe. Some new, some old, and  lot that might be new to you but have been around for while. Every artist you encounter on your journey may not be to your liking, but the joy is in the journey. Here are five of our favorite musicians that are following us on twitter.  Thanks for the follow.

Jamestown Revival

One of our favorite new finds with a sound right out of Laurel Canyon. Check out the song “California (Cast Iron Soul)” from their recent Conan appearance. Move over Mumford and Sons, Dawes, and The Avett Brothers.  There is a new cosmic cowboy in town.

The Repeat Offenders

The Repeat Offenders are a Post Punk band with attitude and energy to spare. Picture Oasis with a little bit more of an edge, and you have the sound scape for this fine up and coming new band.

Love and a .38

If you sometimes are in the mood for some real old school Sunset Strip Rock & Roll, and who isn’t, Love and a .38 is the band for you. They can be found mostly in the Los Angeles area at The Whiskey, The Troubadour, or any number of those cool So. Cal haunts. Their new album will be out in a couple of months, so keep your ears peeled.  In the meantime to hold you over check out this fine Rock and Roll tune, “Rock ‘n Lola.”

Sunshine Riot

Sunshine Riot describes themselves as a Cash-Meets-Cobain Rock & Roll Band from Boston.  Check them out.  They deserve to be on your radar.

Pickering White

Breaking up the sausage fest a bit, we have Pickering White. Exquisitely fronted by Jennifer Pickering, the four piece band is an exciting blend of blues, country, Rock, and a little bit of soul. The vibe is retro cool, and on the excellent “Lady Blue Sky” a little bit of ELO comes out.  Not a lot, just a little bit. Also think Imelda May with a little bit of Lydia Loveless thrown in for good measure.
