The Shins have confirmed the November 23 release of a limited edition 7-inch vinyl single, to be available exclusively at select retailers as part of this year’s Black Friday Record Store Day event. The single will feature the Swift Sessions versions of “No Way Down” and “Fall of 82,” alternate versions of the tracks from The Shins’ current album, Port of Morrow (Aural Apothecary/Columbia) produced by Shins keyboard player Richard Swift.
Band of Horses is playing two shows in NYC in one night! They will be playing the Grand Ballroom at Manhattan Center and The Hammerstein Ballroom at the same place on December 11th. The show at 7pm will be an acoustic show and the show at 10pm will be electric concert.
The Shins were on Conan last night and played “No Way Home” and then played “The Rifle’s Spiral” exclusively for TeamCoco.com. The band’s latest album Port of Morrow is out now! Watch the video below.
Band of Horses was already set to play the big Central Park concert tomorrow with Foo Fighters, Neil Young and others and now they have added more dates. I kind of wish they would play in NYC and a proper club & headlining, or one that isn’t some secret show in Brooklyn just for fans. Oh well, someday I’ll see them again. Band of Horses will also be playing the Railroad Revival tour with Willie Nelson, John C Reilly and Friends and others. Another tour I wish played the East Coast.
Date: September 8th 2012
Bands: Larry and His Flask, The Menzingers, Screaming Females, The Bronx
Bands That Didn’t Play (Outside): Hot Water Music, The Descendents, Gogol Bordello
Riot Fest 2012 is happening in select cities the next few weeks and this weekend the fest was in Brooklyn and today in Toronto. Of course, the New York City date got the shit end of stick with the weather…and some will say the lineup as well. Not to dig other bands on the bill, but the other cities had a better lineup with even more bands. Even if there were more bands in Brooklyn, that just means more bands I wouldn’t have gotten to see.
Paper + Plastick Records just seems like a record label that gets it. They offer up free samplers all the time, sign interesting bands & artists and now they have put their music catalog from 2008-2011 on YouTube in their channel. Pretty cool stuff!
Starring: Kevin Lyman, Mike Posner, Chris Drew, Forever Came Calling, Suicide Silence, Pennywise, and many more

There have been Warped Tour documentaries, behind the scenes videos, specials on broadcast TV, and anything else you can think of. No Room For Rockstars is directed by Parris Patton and is the newest Warped doc that focuses on a few bands/musicians and individuals involved with the tour. While I don’t care about any of the featured bands, it was still an interesting film.
Great Lake Swimmers are returning with new album coming on April 3rd 2012 called New Wild Everywhere.

Sleeping in the Aviary are not typically the type of band that I find myself listening to let alone pleasantly enjoying. Their songs are simple, catchy and even though most of them are rock songs, come off as very mellow…something that you would listen to with your headphones on while laying in the grass staring up at the sky.
