David Byrne's New Album Features Music From HBO's 'Big Love'

4/10/2009 6:00pm EDT
David Byrne
Scored by David Byrne, Big Love: Hymnal, Music Written for the HBO Series Plus Other Recent Compositions is out now on Todomundo. A selection of Byrne's music from all 12 episodes of the second season of the HBO series Big Love, the disc also features as yet unheard tracks written for and inspired by the series.

Big Love, which follows the polygamist family of fundamentalist Mormon Bill Hendrickson (played by Bill Paxton), takes a decidedly dark turn during the second season. What begins as a study in juggling three wives in an orderly and disciplined manner devolves into a morass of ...

Review: U2's 'No Line On The Horizon'

3/10/2009 10:52am EDT
No Line On The Horizon
Let's put aside, if we can, the years of accolades this band has earned. Let's forget about Rolling Stone Magazine's five-star rating for this album (giving it "classic" status). Ignore the aging rock stars that have been written off more than once. And pay no attention to the sparse grey album cover that has left some fans scratching their heads.

All you need to focus on is the music. Three of the finest producers in music - all previous U2 collaborators - were involved in U2's twelfth studio album. Danny Lanois, Brian Eno, and Steve Lillywhite all put their mark on "No Line On...

Fujiya & Miyagi Announce US Fall Tour; 'Lightbulbs' Out Now

9/20/2008 9:00am EDT
Fujiya & Miyagi
Imagine that Fujiya & Miyagi are mask-wearing technicians dissecting music, keen to magnify particles of sound to create a pulsing antidote to the ordinary. They speak in tongues, using language as a rhythm, picking words that sound good, rhyming 'jigsaws' with 'carnivores.'

Their songs are incisive snapshots of real lives that make household appliances sound threatening. They are steeped in vintage music from evocative krautrock to deep soul, with wafts of early Human League synth, Floydian Englishness and the throbbing groove of Tom Tom Club, all filtered for modern times.

Starpulse Catches Up With Silverchair's Daniel Johns

11/30/2007 3:46pm EST
In 1995, Silverchair's "Tomorrow" became the single most played song on US modern rock stations, quite a feat for three 15 year olds from Australia. Since then, Silverchair has become the most successful band in their homeland's history, winning more Arias, the Grammy's of Australia, and charting more number-one records than any other act.

Their sound has evolved considerably since their grunge-styled early work to their latest release "Young Modern," a meticulously produced masterwork that combines elements of glam rock and orchestration reminiscent of Sergeant Pepper's/Revolver-era ...

Bryan Ferry To Release Entire Album Of Bob Dylan Covers June 26; Listen

5/13/2007 11:00am EDT
Bryan Ferry
There is a racing, joyous intensity to Bryan Ferry's interpretations of the songs of Bob Dylan. Just as his legendary version of 'A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall', recorded back in 1973, exchanged apocalyptic vision for exuberant swagger, so at the heart of these new recordings lies Ferry's brilliance in both paying homage to the original track, and reinventing it as entirely and iconically his own. Back then, in 1973, he had an idea: "I just thought it would be great to make a whole album of Dylan songs. And at the end of last year, finally, it happened."

Between the idea and its executio...

Devo To Tour Europe For First Time In 15 Years

4/18/2007 12:45pm EDT
Devo are the unmistakable American rock group formed in Akron, Ohio in 1972 by Kent State art students Jerry Casale and Mark Mothersbaugh. Their debut album, Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo produced by Brian Eno, and was originally released to worldwide acclaim in 1978.

They were also one of the first American rock acts to sign to the UK-based record label Stiff Records.

Devo took its name from their concept of "de-evolution" — the idea that instead of evolving, mankind has actually regressed, as evidenced by the dysfunction and herd mentality of American society.

Brian Eno Won't Take Part In Roxy Music Reunion

3/24/2006 8:00pm EST
Brian Eno
Music pioneer Brian Eno has quashed rumours he will reteam with his former Roxy Music bandmates to record the group's first album since 1982.

Eno quit the British band in 1973 after recording just two LPs with the Brian Ferry-fronted outfit - but British press reports recently claimed he was set to return to his roots.

A statement on EnoWeb says the rumours are "untrue and just in-good-faith wishful thinking from the journalists - Brian has no involvement with the band's current recording or tour plans.

"All that happened was that Brian popped in to visit the members of the g...
