The Sony Walkman Is Still Alive
The only model of the old-style player currently being sold in the U.S. is the Walkman Weather Radio/Cassette Player, which features access to National Weather Service broadcasts. The Sony site promoting the device, which sells for $29.99, says the player can be used to “enjoy your old cassette collection.” The spokesman said there was “a consistent but small demand”...
Fort Christmas - Feathers EP (or New Music From...
I really can’t get enough of Jeremy Larson of late and he has a new side project called Fort Christmas which is really just Jeremy Larson under a new name. I’m not exactly sure what his thought on that was, but he’s taking a break from writing his next solo record and putting out a solo EP. Confused yet? Me too. Nevertheless, his new EP titled “Feathers EP” is out...
Ra Ra Riot: The Making of The Orchard
This interesting little short film documentary was oddly just released on Hulu from Ra Ra Riot about their new album. Check out their single “Boy” which is also available free to download. (fyi - right click and choose “save as”) The video is a little on the long side, but I’d like to think it may encourage other bands to document and advertise documentaries in a...

Germs Of Perfection: A Tribute To Bad Religion
We’re digging the song from Switchfoot, but all the songs are available to listen to for free at the link below. Here’s what MySpace had to say: For many, Bad Religion has been a hugely influential band who, beyond almost anyone’s expectations, is celebrating their 30th anniversary this year with the release of their new album, The Dissent Of Man. But that’s not all. The band has...
Anberlin, Crash Kings, and Civil Twilight: Live at...
[Please excuse the quality of the included photos. We tried to bring a camera in, but we were rejected because “it has a strap”… seriously. iPhone photos had to get the job done, so that’s what you get.] We took to the streets of Hollywood on Friday night and caught the Civil Twilight, Crash Kings, and Anberlin show at the House of Blues (HOB). Actually, we missed Civil...

The Social Network - Comment - Like
Sony 2010 Initially, I was not looking forward to The Social Network. I had not planned to watch the movie because it did not seem interesting to me and I was not sure how the filmmakers were going to fill 120 minutes with content that could hold my attention the whole time. However, by the time the film hit theaters, we started covering The Social Network Perspective on small groups in my...
Review: Aaron Hale - Ghostly EP
Aaron Hale is a worship leader and Christian recording artist out of Kansas City, and he kindly sent us his newest EP Ghostly this week and we were happy to take a listen. I’ve been around the Christian music scene long enough to know that I’m pretty much a skeptic at this point when it comes to “worship” music. However, I don’t think Aaron shouldn fall into that...
Apple TV unboxed
I almost want to write this post as a movie review as if Apple TV were an actual movie itself due to it’s surprising great media capabilities. In other words - its movies galore, plus more. And the HD looks fantastic. With all the options of streaming video and access media into your living room, I must say Apple TV offers a fresh new way to do just that and many other options. It’s...
Kings of Leon - Radioactive Official music video for “Radioactive” from Kings of Leon … first single from new album “Come Around Sundown.” Release date is 10/19/10. Loving it.
Review: The Heyday - Till We See The Sun
We’re always on the lookout for new artists that we think everyone will love—The Heyday is one of those artists. Their new six song album Till We See The Sun is fun, upbeat, and makes me want to hop in a truck with the windows down and go for a drive to anywhere. The Heyday have taken everything I love in the new Hanson sound and added a little more Americana to it thus creating an...
Jeremy Larson - Fort Christmas (free song)
I shared how much I dig Jeremy Larson back in March and nothing has changed since then. He’s got a side project that he’s calling Fort Christmas coming out in a couple of weeks and he has posted a new track on his blog for free download called “The Leave Behind”. Apparently the side project grew out of a break from his solo work and on his personal blog he writes, ...
Review: Gatlin Elms - Carry Me Home
Gatlin Elms have basically come out of nowhere with Carry Me Home, their latest release due out on October 10, 2010 (10/10/10). If you’re looking for new music and a band that you can follow for a while, then Gatlin Elms are a good place to start. Carry Me Home starts with a short but sweet instrumental intro called “Billions”. This leads in to what I believe is one of the best...
Unsent Letter From Kurt Cobain to MTV
Kurt Cobain still has his finger on the pulse of pop culture. Supposedly, a new unsent letter from the Nirvana frontman to MTV is up for auction on a website called “Julien’s LIVE”. I’m always a little weary when I hear of stuff like this, but if it’s Kurt, and if it’s real, then this letter has the best opening address of just about anything I’ve...
Mike Reeb Writes Songs From The Heart
We dig indie artists here at evade the noise, so when we got an email from Mike Reeb this week giving us the heads up on his new album Breaking we were happy to take a listen. What we didn’t expect was a well-written, well-produced acoustic folk album that doesn’t feel forced and comes from the heart. Acoustic driven, and at times almost country with some subtle steel guitar,...
