Q&A: Marianas Trench's Mike Ayley

September 28th, 2011 2:27pm EDT
Marianas Trench
You may not have heard of Canadian pop-punk rockers Marianas Trench, but you should remember their name. After enjoying plenty of success in their native country - they garnered three MuchMusic Video Award nominations this year - they're on their way to take the United States by storm.

They've appeared as themselves on ABC Family's Kyle XY, and their music has been heard on the CW hit The Vampire Diaries (the song "Cross My Heart" was included in season 1) and Degrassi: The Next Generation.

As the band prepares to release their third album, Ever After (set for November 29), and head...

Concert Review: The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart At The E.A.R.L. In Atlanta

May 18th, 2009 2:30pm EDT
The Pains of Being Pure at Heart
Hailing from Brooklyn, New York, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart are enjoying that initial taste of success. Supporting their first full length, self-titled album (Slumberland Records), these shoegazers have received some critical acclaim. Commercial acclaim may soon follow. With a sound reminiscent of My Bloody Valentine, the Pains supply a wall-of-guitar sound and swift drumming accompanied by buried, sometimes unintelligible lyrics (not quite a "Murmur," but some songs come close). All this with a sugary-sweet pop sensibility.

Band members Kip Berman (guitar, vocals), Alex Naid...

Where Do Bands Get Their Names?

November 11th, 2008 11:01am EST
The Band
Sometimes the music doesn't matter. A band that channels the combined genius of John Lennon, Strauss and The Spice Girls can still fall flat with the wrong name. After all, who wants to tell people that their favorite band is called "Truck" or "Lug Nut?" A bad name can kill the potential of any group of musicians. It took more than a few tries to get it right for many of the most popular groups of all time. A few young gents from Britain started off their career calling themselves The Detours and then The High Numbers before ultimately settling on The Who.

Rock history is rife with lor...

'The Brit Box' Features UK Indie, Shoegaze, And Brit-Pop Gems Of The Last Millennium

November 18th, 2007 9:30am EST
The Brit Box
The king's ransom of influential and diverse U.K.-based indie pop & rock acts that emerged from Great Britain in the broad wake of '80s post-punk has never been chronicled with serious attention -- until now, and Rhino's vast 4-CD retrospective The Brit Box: U.K. Indie, Shoegaze, And Brit-Pop Gems Of The Last Millennium does just that.

While many artists featured here enjoyed superstar status in Mother England, their impact on U.S. charts was more peripheral-- but their stylistic imprint and collective uber-hip peer-pressure on late 20th century popular music overall is undeniable. Wit...

Pete Yorn Headlines The South In Support Of Latest Album, "Nightcrawler"

October 6th, 2006 10:41am EDT
Pete Yorn
For Nightcrawler, his first new studio album in three years, rocker Pete Yorn explores, and brings full circle, the day-for-life metaphor (morning-day-night) which began with his RIAA gold-certified debut album, musicforthemorningafter, in 2001 and continued through 2003's Day I Forgot. "This new record is not so much for the night," says Pete, "but for a later period in my life. The perspective I have comes from having lived more and experienced more."

Nightcrawler, which premieres a dozen brand-new songs, is perhaps the most musically complex and fully realized album of Pete's caree...
