Plain White T's - 'The Wonders Of The Younger'

12/14/2010 1:49pm EST
Plain White T
Plain White T’s: The Wonders of the Younger: Believe it or not, the Wonders of the Younger, the latest release from the moderately relevant Plain White T’s, is a rock opera. You wouldn’t think that the Plain White T’s would be a band ambitious enough to attempt the concept of all concept albums, but apparently the band is ready to write their place in history alongside bands like the Who and Green Day, bands who have not only attempted the vaunted rock opera idea, but have also overwhelmingly succeeded. Well Plain White T’s, yes, kudos for trying, but you’re not on the same level as those t...

4/14/2009 6:00pm EDT
Single File
Denver-based rock trio Single File released Common Struggles, their full length debut, on April 7th. "The title Common Struggles says it all - I'm not pretending that any of what I've dealt with is new, it's just the human condition," says lead vocalist/guitarist/bassist Sloan Anderson, explaining the choice of title for Single File's album, which was produced by Howard Benson (My Chemical Romance, The All-American Rejects, Less Than Jake).

The album features the quirky pop-rock track "Mannequin Loveseat" as well as the just released album single "Girlfriends." The new single is sure ...

On The Road Again: Music To Make The Trip More Enjoyable

4/16/2008 3:38pm EDT
Sum 41
Imagine driving across the country with nothing but the great open road in your future. Going through barely-there towns and the desert, the road is full of possibilities (as well as seedy hotels and exorbitant gas prices). What makes the drive go by quicker? Music. It's essential for any kind of driving - whether you're on your way to the grocery store or to visit your friend's summer place up north. It's important that your playlists and CDs feature a mix of your favorite songs, and the music you pick can set the theme of your entire trip.

Class of '07: Stand Out Musical Acts

2/20/2008 4:04pm EST
Plain White T
2007 marked a year of stellar and refreshing music acts, in all genres, to hit the music scene. Here, we present the Class of '07 stand out acts:

Amy Winehouse

Though we do not know what the future may hold for this U.K. based chanteuse, but GRAMMY winning Winehouse, has certainly already created a legacy for herself with the release of Back To Black. The Soul inspired album, brings back a modernized sound that was sorely needed in the music industry last year. Though public antics worked well to keep her in the press much of last year, in the end it is her music that we honor ...

Some Nominees At This Year's Grammy Awards Might Sound Familiar

2/5/2008 4:16pm EST
Carrie Underwood
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Even if you only occasionally listen to radio, you've probably heard Carrie Underwood's revenge anthem ''Before He Cheats'' ... and heard it, and heard it, and heard it.

The tune is on Underwood's 2005 debut album, ''Some Hearts,'' and it first hit the charts back in February 2006. So why now, two years later, is ''Before He Cheats'' up for song of the year at the Grammy Awards on Sunday? Because the Grammy rules allow it.

Indeed, Underwood's mega-hit isn't the only song of the year nominee that could, at least to fans, feel stale. ''Hey There Delilah'' by ...

Starpulse Asks: Where Have All the Songwriters Gone?

10/26/2007 3:49pm EDT
Pop tunesmiths are a baker's dozen. After the late-90s surge of uber song doctors such as Desmond Child and Diane Warren (known for that Titanic song), Justin Timberlake found his "SexyBack" and his own writing voice following years of whistling Max Martin dixie. Heck, even Britney Spears penned tunes from her Britney effort. (This year's tepid train wreck "Blackout" features a pitiful two songs co-written by the popstar.)

But what goes around comes around. A mere glance at the contemporary pop offerings finds only a chapbook of singer-songwriters. Ms. Warren's cheeseball balladry has ...

Lovedrug On Tour In Support Of Sophomore Effort

3/19/2007 9:30pm EDT
VH1 Behind The Music fans can attest: the ol' upstart indie band on a major label story goes south with a quickness. So we should have seen it coming when Columbia Records upstreamed the Ohio-based whippersnappers in Lovedrug. Their '04 Militia Group debut, Pretend You're Alive, was a hit with mall-loads of kids, and after its euro-minded guitar rock won over a large enough audience, the big whigs came calling. But as the time-tested VH1 narrative goes, instability and a revolving door of key figures at the label took its toll. Our heroes in Lovedrug remained unfazed, though, and deftly sli...

The Hard Lessons Are The Next Best Thing To Come Out Of Detroit

2/14/2007 11:00pm EST
The Hard Lessons
Somewhere between the rawness of the White Stripes, the power of the Foo Fighters, and the hip factor of Death From Above 1979, is Detroit's most promising new act, The Hard Lessons. Fronted by Detroit's modern incarnation of Ike and Tina, the band's tracks come on like an unexpected face-slap. With a sweaty live show rendering crowds and critics across the country "vanquished and sated," and a critically acclaimed debut album, Gasoline, The Hard Lessons are poised to take over the world. Dangerously exciting and addictively fun (get out a pad and paper), this is rock n roll music!
