In late 2011, Matt Myers, Zak Appleby and Shane Cody started playing music together in a historic home in New Albany, Indiana dubbed "The Green House." Its rooms were adorned with relics from times past, so it was no surprise that songs such as “Penitentiary” bounced off the walls. Nostalgic sounds from their first album seemed to serve as a welcome escape for listeners from the relentless demands of the digital age.

The Dead South have been described as outlaws and modern hillbillies, but the best way to describe the Regina-based band is fearless. They're a rare musical commodity – a band that's equally compelling on record as they are on stage. While The Dead South's signature blend of bluegrass and classic folk is familiar, it's also eminently fresh; fueled by the kind of energy and ethic you'd associate with a punk band. "A lot of our inspiration comes from an old school feel, but our sound is an amalgamation of the we all… more

Monster Magnet’s been misunderstood from the day it came out, but that's OK. Music is weird and cool. And being in a band is weird and cool. I've been in a band for a long time. I never wanted to be the band that totally sold out. Never wanted to ring the bell of every single shmuck on the planet. I never wanted to be the band that jumped the shark so fucking bad that I was stuck in a position like, "Yes, I'm the shark jumper" and walk around high-fiving myself in spite of it. And the only way to do that is be true to… more

Having been the subject and willing conspirator of many intentional lies planted in Sonic Youth bios over the years, I know first hand the way album lore can bend reality to its truth. After the infamous Byron Coley originated the SY “Trilogy” myth in the Murray Street bio, we had no choice but to fulfill those expectations with Sonic Nurse. “Why did you decide to make a trilogy?” was always the first question asked in interviews around that time.
