    • Listen: Bon Iver - “8 (a circle)”
      Bon Iver (Justin Vernon and band) are releasing a new album, 22, A Million, this Friday (September 30) via Jagjaguwar. Previously we had been treated to extended versions the album's first three tracks, "22 (OVER S∞∞N)," "10 d E A T h b R E a s T ⚄ ⚄," and "33 'GOD'."
    • Watch: Weyes Blood - “Do You Need My Love” Video
      Weyes Blood (aka Natalie Mering) is releasing a new album, Front Row Seat to Earth, on October 21 via Mexican Summer. Now she's shared a video for the six-and-a-half minute long "Do You Need My Love."
    • Watch: John Carpenter - “Utopian Façade” Video
      Iconic horror film director John Carpenter released Lost Themes II back in April via Sacred Bones, a sequel to his 2015-released Lost Themes album. Now he has shared a video for "Utopian Façade." Befitting the director, it features a female android in a TRONmeets Storm Trooper type outfit on the run from some zombies and other monsters. 
    • Watch: New Order - “People on the High Line” Video
      Last September New Order released Music Complete, their excellent first studio album in a decade, their first for their new label Mute, and the first not to feature founding member Peter Hook (but it saw the return of founding member Gillian Gilbert). 
    • Listen: Temples Share New Song - “Certainty”
      British psychedelic pop quartet Temples released their promising debut album, Sun Structures, back in 2014. Now the band has shared a brand new song, "Certainty," which is the first taste of their sophomore album and sits more on the pop side of their psych pop equation.
    • Remember Us to Life
      For die-hard fans, it has been four long years since the release of What We Saw from the Cheap Seats, Regina Spektor's sixth and most recent studio album. (Catchy as her intro to Orange is the New Black might be, it just doesn't fill the void that a new album from the Soviet-born singer/songwriter does.)
    • Starving the Beast
      The snarl of James Carville to open Starving the Beast, as he addresses his alma mater of Louisiana State University, frames the appropriate degree of impassioned opposition to the commoditization of America’s public higher educational institutions.
    • Valley of the Dolls & Beyond the Valley of the Dolls
      In certain cinephile circles, the reputation of Mark Robson’s Valley of the Dolls, based on the novel by Jacqueline Susann, precedes itself. 
    • Bob’s Burgers (Season 7, Episode 1: “Flu-ouise”)
      As season seven (!) of the most warm-hearted comedy on TV begins, the writers drift from what makes the show so good (its relationships between the Belcher family and the secondary characters) and toward a more Simpsons-y gag of a literal fever dream. But because the writing team is so good, "Flu-ouise" still sings—and quite literally.
    • Check Out a Gallery of Photos of Lush at Their Washington DC 9:30 Club Show on Wednesday
      1990s shoegaze legends Lush recently reformed and released a great new EP, Blind Spot, in April. This year the band have also been playing their first U.S. shows in 20 years.

    • Album Stream: Sam Evian - 'Premium' September 26, 2016
      “An analogue dream in a digital world...”Sam Evian thrives on places where opposites intersect. As a songwriter, he describes his music as “an analogue dream in a digital world” and that comes close to his approach. Lyrically, he fuses the universal with the personal, statements with grand societal sweep to rather more minute, introverted observations. New a […]
    • The Stone Roses Announce 2017 Shows September 26, 2016
      Three British dates confirmed...The Stone Roses have announced three huge British shows. The band played a series of epic dates in Manchester this summer, alongside releasing their first two blasts of new material in 20 years. The iconic group will play three dates next summer, including shows in Belfast, London, and Glasgow. Hitting stadium capacity, The St […]
    • The Wytches Write For Clash September 26, 2016
      Strap yourselves in for a bumpy ride...Autumn is rapidly descending, and it's time for the wytch-ing hour. The Wytches recently unveiled new cut 'C-Side', and it could well be their strongest single yet: stark, gothic, yet also boasting the sort of nagging ear-worm melody that stays lodged in your mind for days. Clash invited the band to pen s […]
    • Premiere: Ghost 'Nameless Ghoul' Deezer Close Up September 26, 2016
      Creepy catch up with 'Ghost' discussing some unexpected favourite tracks...Ghost have quickly become a Scandivian heavy metal bethemoth, they make pop hyms that glorify and glamourise the disgusting and sacriliegious. Their 2015 release 'Circe' won a Grammy award for Best Metal Performance earlier this year and their stage show is a sight […]
    • Influences: Boxed In September 26, 2016
      Oli Bayston reveals the sounds that underpin 'Melt'...Boxed In have never been an easy project to pin down. Essentially an expression of the imagination of Oli Bayston, Boxed In can veer from psychedelic abandon to introverted solitude, often within the space of the same song. New album 'Melt' is a courageous step forward, a brave, confid […]
    • Pixelord's 'Human.exe' Is Mind Blowing September 26, 2016
      Dima Terem directs the incredible new video...Pixelord - real name Alexey Devyanin - is at the vanguard of new electronic innovation coming out of Russia. A generation who grew up on the internet, their world wide approach is matched to a creative sensibility that operates without boundaries. New album 'Human.exe' is out now, and it's an enthr […]
    • Track Of The Day 26/9 - Judas September 26, 2016
      'Love Is The Enemy'If Judas seem familiar it's perhaps because they've crossed your path this summer. The newcomers have literally been everywhere: a surprise set on Soccer AM was followed by a trip to the Isle Of Wight (where Clash caught them), before a last minute pull out pushed Judas onto the main stage at Leeds Festival. Racing acro […]
    • Premiere: John Southworth - 'Second Childhood' September 26, 2016
      Maverick songwriter returns...John Southworth has always seemed like a man out of time. The UK-born, Canadian-raised artist has previously resided in an antiquated style, but recently switched studios and embraced a host of new recording techniques. The results blur time and tide, switching styles and crafting something that sluices together different time c […]
    • Premiere: Tusks - 'For You' (BAILE Remix) September 26, 2016
      A wistful ethereal re-work that thrives on suggestion...'For You' was many people's introduction to Tusks. The opening cut on new EP 'False', the sheer force of the songwriting was matched to impeccable production. Signed to One Little Indian, each release from Tusks seems to find her talent blossom still further, charting hitherto u […]
    • Sun Ra 45s To Be Gathered In New Strut Collection September 26, 2016
      Sought after cuts from the jazz master collated...Sought after single releases from Sun Ra are set to be gathered on a deluxe new Strut Records release. The label have been busy gathering rare and difficult to find material from the jazz master, with the releases set to span 1952 to 1991. The compilation will be split across two 10 x 7 inch vinyl box sets, a […]

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.
