Dry the River – The Chambers & The Valves

posted on Feb.28, 2012

Dry this River has it’s debut album coming out April 17th in the US. This date also marks the start of the band’s music tour around the UK. They hail from Stratford, a borough in London. If this smooth yet upbeat song is any indication this album should be filled with clever lyricism.

Arctic Monkeys – R U Mine?

posted on Feb.27, 2012

You know you like the Arctic Monkeys. And you know you like it when bands release new songs. And because you like these things, you are in luck. “R U Mine?” is AM’s latest track, a boomer with a heavy drums and a heavier guitar riff. Check out the video and air-drum along; it’s nearly impossible not to.
