Green Thursdays: 15 Impressive Green and Recycled Homes

Story from Colorcoat: We are living in a time when being eco friendly is not an option anymore, but an attitude and a behaviour that one must have. Caring about the environment is nowadays a must if we care about our destiny not just as individual human beings, but as a society and a civilization as well. Now mix that ...

Stream: Ryan Adams’ 1984

The newsworthy part of this post is that you can stream Adams' self-titled album that was released yesterday over here. But because this guy's wicked cool, and because he recently recovered from a crazy illness and was probably super keen to get back to work and get creative again, he also recently released his ...

Stream: The Vines’ Wicked Nature

Do you primarily know The Vines because they had a hit song on the Top Gear soundtrack? Are you not really sure how the Top Gear soundtrack even made it into your library? Were you pleasantly surprised to learn that The Vines rock pretty well and have just released a new double album? Yes to all of the above? Then we ...

Stream: New Pornographers – Brill Bruisers

If you're looking for some new music that seems to whisper the beginnings of spring and happier times, New Pornographers' new record is for you. It's got jangly, optimistic, sunshine vibes as epitomised by the title track, and it's got a song called "Champions Of Red Wine", so it's basically everything I want in a ...

Watch Ryan Adams cover The Grateful Dead

MyMusicRx is a service that brings music to hospitalized children with cancer. Ryan Adams recently went to go and play some songs with them. The whole reason I'm reposting this is because Adams says he likes to listen to the Dead when he feels out of place or isn’t feeling great. I've had a few days like that recently ...

My day with George

I've always been a Beatles girl. I mean, most people who like music are Beatles girls/boys, right? (I actually have one friend who just never really took to them and who I realise now must be part-deaf.) But because I've always followed popular Beatles culture, I've always been led to look at John and Paul as they ...

Stream: Chrissie Hynde – Stockholm

This album's not entirely new - released on June 9th - but I was still amped to find a stream of it for you because I downloaded the lead single "Dark Sunglasses" when it was first released and one thing was immediately clear to me: after many many years, Chrissie Hynde's voice still sounds like it was made for my ...

Sleeper Agent grows up right on second record

When I first wrote about Sleeper Agent three years ago, I loved them because they matched the loud, energetic, and somewhat runaway noise in my head. "Get It Daddy" is still one of my most-played songs, all this time later. That opening riff is just insanely infectious! But, in my Sleeper Agent relationship, something ...

Green Thursdays: 9 tips for Zero Waste entertaining

Story from Treehugger: Promo image Simply Straws Summer is the season for outdoor entertaining. Unfortunately, this can result in excessive amounts of waste, as many hosts set out piles of Styrofoam plates, plastic cutlery, and plastic cups in order to reduce the amount of cleanup and broken glasses in the backyard. ...

Stream: Bad Suns – Language & Perspective

Man, it's been cool to watch this band arc towards stardom. I'm just going to say it once more - I was their at their very first gig. But since then, thousands of fans have been there at many more gigs, and Los Angeles' Bad Suns have finally released their full-length debut album. From Billboard: Christo Bowman ...
