‘Boys and Girls in America’ Turns 12 Today, Revisiting the Beery Introspection of Craig Finn

12 years ago today, The Hold Steady released their triumphant, beer-soaked album Boys and Girls in America. Not many narrative heavy, organ and guitar frenzied indie rock albums have made their way into existence, and even fewer have accrued the same record sales and loyal fanbases as The Hold Steady did with this record.  It’s not surprising. Boys and Girls in America has everything:...

Muse Announce New Album and Drop First Single, “The Dark Side”

Not many bands can get away with producing edgy, sci-fi themed albums and concerts, but Muse continues to show that it doesn’t really matter what theatrics are involved with a project.

Springsteen on Broadway: Where 1+1 = 3

Since last fall, Bruce Springsteen, the Boss, has been working his first real job in quite some time: five nights a week at the Walter Kerr Theater. “Springsteen on Broadway” was a difficult concept to swallow at first. For the songwriter who gained his following in dive bars along the Jersey Shore, who became a saint for the working-class, whose songs provided inclusion for many who...

There hasn’t been any word on the completion of Muse’s upcoming LP, but last year, the English prog-rock band dropped “Dig Down”, a track which can most adequately be described as a rock gospel. Muse dropped visuals for the inspiring and...
