Introducing The Mary Onettes – the most underrated band out of Jönköping, Sweden. “Puzzles” is the latest release from Islands, their highly anticipated second full-length studio album due out on November 4th. I did a search for the lyrics and…nada, zilch, zero, nothin’.

I’m lost on one line. (I could be lost on others, too.) Take a listen and feel free to draw your own conclusions…
A nun?….
A numb?…..
Annulled?……

lone star indie bash

The “National Beer of Texas” is inviting fans to win tickets to a one day concert on Saturday, October 24th at the historic Lone Star Brewery. Created in 1884 for business and recently restored for pleasure, the Brewery sits in the beautiful (but not as cool as Austin) city of San Antonio, Texas.

Texas faves like Austin’s Ben Kweller, San Antonio’s Charlie Robison and Dallas’ Jonathan Tyler will be performing as well as other boot-wearin’ artists. The event will feature food stands, and to quote the most delightful line of the Press Release… “concert goers will be able to enjoy Lone Star Beer.”

You have until September 30th to enter the sweepstakes online at www.LoneStarBeer.com for a chance to see the show (TICKETS WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR), and to win some cool VIP-style prizes. (You must be 21 to enter)

Proceeds from product sales at the concert will go to Texas Music Project, a non-profit which works in conjunction with the Texas music industry, State of Texas, Texas Music Educators Association, Texas Commission on the Arts, and the Texas Coalition for Quality Arts Education. All of these organizations help strengthen and restore music education to Texas schools.

Anthony D’Amato to Recycled Love Songs on the track “Skeleton Key”:

“Skeleton Key” came out all at once, which is unusual. Most songs come to me in bits and pieces, but “Skeleton Key” just poured out in the middle of the night. The idea of the song is that you can beat yourself up over things that go wrong (in relationships or anywhere in your (more…)

The Winter Sounds to Recycled Love Songs on the track “Trophy Wife”:

“Trophy Wife was recorded as a demo in the middle of last year. We had decided at that point that the next record: “Church of the Haunted South” was going to be in some ways a retelling of ‘Gone with the Wind’. After reading the book, I felt a strong connection to the characters (more…)

“I wrote this song along with the B-Side song (Rose Puzzles) about 2 months ago while watching the Elizabeth Taylor/Richard Burton film ‘Who’s afraid of Virginia Woolfe’… Alot of the lyrics, including the title of (NMNW) are about the main characters relationship in the film. (more…)

Brandon Kinder to Recycled Love Songs on the track “Like Ice in Water“:

“This was the very first song we wrote for 20,000 Ghosts. I was having a lot of trouble writing any songs for the album–almost like writers block–there was nothing coming out that I felt good about.

One day while I was recording on someone else’s project at a studio I was worked at, I texted a local friend in Austin who is a (more…)
