  • "Weird Al' Yankovic's 'Mandatory Fun' Takeover, Sloan's 'Commonwealth' and the Polaris Short List in Our News Roundup

    After another big week on the music news front, we're back to kindly present our roundup of the week that was. If you're looking to get all nostalgic or simply catch up on something you may have missed, here's just a bit of what went down the last several days.

    First off, it was most definitely "Weird Al' Yankovic week here on the internet. Not only did the beloved satirist roll out a pile of music videos, but he spoke to Exclaim! all about Arcade Fire, Robin Thicke and that wee purple Prince fellow, not to mention his new album Mandatory Fun.

  • Low opening Slowdive's reunion tour (updated dates +++ NYC show back on BV presale)

    Low at The Concert Hall in 2013 (more by PSquared)

    As if it wasn't exciting enough that the reunited Slowdive are going on a full North American tour, it just got more exciting because slowcore vets Low were added as the opener, making for two '90s indie rock greats (just one that never broke up) in one night.

  • A Sunny Day in Glasgow: Sea When Absent

    This wholly unique dream-pop band returns with an album that takes their ambient, dreamy sound to new and interesting places.

    Ashes Grammar by A Sunny Day in Glasgow remains one of my favorite records of recent years. Its heady, swirling mix of shoegaze, synth-pop, and dream pop was a welcome alternative to the legions of shoegaze bands haplessly trying to re-create Loveless (or, more likely, trying to re-create Slowdive’s Souvlaki). Nothing about the band explicitly defined them as... well, anything. Thus, it was a real shame when the band disappeared, for all intents and purposes.…
