To call the Rolling Stones a band who made an impact on global pop culture would be an understatement if there if ever there were one. With their own personal history spanning literally more than half a century, these key figures in the history of rock ‘n roll specifically played a huge part in the crucial music period […]


Rumpshaker Records produces this first in a new series of mix sets from friends of the bass and breaks-driven label.

A documentary about the birth of punk in the nation's capitol

Having already shown segments at the CBGB Festival in New York this month, Salad Days documents an era and location that was pivotal to not only punk rock, but to the indie movement of do-it-yourself record labels itself.

With all the buzz about the one-album-only concept surrounding their upcoming release of Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, it’s not surprising A Better Tomorrow, their twentieth anniversary album, would […]


French electropop princess Yelle is back, which is music to our ears. It’s been more than 3 years since her “Safari Disco Club” and “Que veux-tu” Two-In-One Mini-film, so the time is about right. Last week she released the single “Complètement Fou” that is well, complètement fou.
