3) Birdmonster Loves Their Fans

Birdmonster recently sent out a letter to all the members of their mailing list, detailing what they've been getting up to. Among other things, that band wants you to have a "rock n' rollified" version of a track from their latest album, and to know that we can expect a video from them for "Born to Be Your Man"soon. They also want you to know that they had fun breaking things for said video.

4) The Legends Love Heavy Feedback and Distortion

Swedish one-man-band, the Legends, release their new single on November the 5th... but you can hear it now.


The Legends - Seconds Away (mp3)(buy)

5) The Dead Trees Are More Lively Than Their Name Gives to Believe

Having finished up last year's tour with Albert Hammond Jr, this four piece is ready to hit the road again with Little Joy. They will also be supporting their own full length release, King of Rosa.

The Dead Trees - Shelter (mp3)(buy)

The band ha a notion of bringing back the basics to rock and roll. According to the Dead Trees' vocalist Michael Ian Cummings, "these days, the only way forward is backward". I like that.

King of Rosa will be out (CD and digital) on October the 21st.

6) the Pale Corners Love Table Tennis

That's the second Swedish band on our roster today. Stockholme-ian band the Pale Corners, would like you to know that their members never tell each other to go to hell, and are more like an amateur table tennis team than anything else.

The Pale Corners - Steve Buscemi (mp3)(not yet available for purchase)

They're so much like a table tennis team that they spent hours recording a table tennis game. We'll be able to hear this game as the drum beat to their next single. Godspeed, Pale Corners! You've got me hooked.
