Here’s the deal: Sputnikresident Keelan’s review of Sufjan Stevens’ The Age of Adz is really fucking good. I mean like, really, really fucking good. So much so that I had to write something back at him. But before that I really need to point out that Keelan is the most profound writer on this site, […]

As part of my ongoing efforts to educate the masses about an archaic musical genre that nobody really liked in the first place, I’ll be highlighting some of the forgotten classics (i.e. all of them) of the hair metal era. Anybody who had harboured any lingering respect for me up to this point will soon […]

There’s a sweet spot in my heart for this Sydney four piece – not only do they craft some of the best alt-pop tunes I know, but they do it with a lush grandeur that so few others ever have. On the back of their brilliant and shimmering Dark Strom EP,  released yesterday, here’s Mace […]


Hello Sputnik community, As a staff writer I frequently get asked about “the right way to write a review” (as if there is a right way), and for tips and pointers by users that want to step up and provide new content to the site. While the creative process is different from person to person, […]


Remember the last time a couple of tracks rocked as hard as Broken Social Scene channeling Black Francis via Dinosaur Jr with a detour past the Japandroids? We do, and it was right about every time we spun the red hot singles from PS I Love You‘s upcoming debut Meet Me At The Muster Station […]

On last night’s (Wednesday’s) edition of his Late Night show, Jimmy Fallon finally managed to combine his dual-interest in classic hip hop and wooden acting in a surprisingly good medley of classic rap songs with help from Justin Timberlake and house band the Roots.


‘Army of Tears’ from The Nameless. I’ve had enough, these salty tears I’ve caught a thousand of them, filled a hundred cups. And bit by bit, they grew and grew So I began to turn them into something new. Every hour of every night My little soldiers drew a breath and came to life. One […]


Remember when all that crazy news about Justin Vernon working with Kanye broke? Remember how we didn’t know what to think? Had Vernon sold out, or was Kanye collaborating with people who could really bring his vision to fruition? Well, Yeezy released “Monster”, which was the first taste anyone got of the Vernon/West collaborations, but […]


This might be my favourite track to come out this year. It’s by Adam Haworth Stephens, who you might know from his work in Two Gallants, and it sounds like if Bob Dylan re-wrote “Another Brick in the Wall”.  It’s off his first solo release, We Live On Cliffs, which is out today. There’s almost […]

Simple Plan – you know the name, but do you know the story?  The nitty-gritty?  The highs, the lows, the drama, the bond that these five young people share?  For those of you who have just recently heard of the band, you might think that they’ve always been on top, that they’ve always had the […]


Boston, MA pop-hardcore act Four Year Strong (pictured above) will perform in New York City’s Irving Plaza on October 5 with the insanely strong support line-up of Comeback Kid, the Wonder Years and American Fangs. To be in with a chance of winning a pair of tickets, email your full name along with confirmation that […]


Earlier this week, Katy Perry hauled her autotuned ass to Sesame Street and indulged in a little duet with Elmo on her 2008 hit ‘Hot N Cold.’ Just… um… just… yeah.


OK, this is pretty old (witness the 9.6 million plays), but it really needs to be seen to be believed. You’ll never listen to ‘Total Eclipse of the Heart’ the same way again, and if you’re anything like me it’s a life-altering event on the scale of losing the use of one’s legs. But in […]
