Listening Party

Sputnik has a long and proud history of supporting the world’s best and most popular sport. Two years ago, Nick Butler used the football World Cup as an opportunity for a fascinating study into the musical history of the 32 participating nations. This year, not so much. We will, however, be using the 32 games taking […]

This attention probably initially stemmed from the band’s connection with The […]

Marissa Nadler – The Wrecking Ball Company (Official Video) ————————————————————————————————- If it seems like only last year that Marissa Nadler was releasing her self-titled fifth album, it’s because it really was only last June.

Oh yes, I can dig this. Give me indie-pop made solely with hooks and blow ‘em up. Cut the beat so they stick in your head. Give that familiar indie-wail a little swagger. The lyrics? They weren’t that important anyway. Make them vague and sexual enough to blend into the song, but give me a […]

Imminent Sonic Destruction play a version of progressive metal that mixes a large dose of modern metal riffing along with some different vocal styles. The main style sounds like […]

Lindsey Pavao – Say Aah (Live on The Voice) Outside of the U.S. — Use this link —————————————————————————————————————- When I learned that Dia Frampton had participated on season one of NBC’s The Voice, I decided that I would give season 2 a chance when it finally aired after the Superbowl.
