Yeah, I really shouldn't do these podcasts so late. I really let myself spool out the ramble on this one. But I think it's actually ok. Just make sure you listen to it at like 12:30 am. :) Countdown #128 ***Featuring*** Alex Clare AWOLNATION The Black Keys Grouplove Imagine Dragons The Lumineers Mumford & Sons Muse Passion Pit R.E.M. Youngblood Hawke
Excuse me for a second as I scream a mental 'Hell Yeah' due to the fact that I'll be seeing both PAPA and Grouplove just two days from now. Grouplove has been one of my favorite bands to watch evolve over the past year after the huge success of their full-length debut Never Trust a Happy Ending . I have missed them once coming through Minneapolis and that just isn't going to happen again. PAPA, on the other hand, is a band that has recently made their way onto my iPod rotation. Just a couple [...]
Photo Credit: Luis Ruiz Oh did New York City need this. Even after the absolute madness of Sandy, fans were able to make their way to Terminal 5, show their love for Grouplove (@grouplove) and MS MR (@msmrsounds), and have, not surprisingly, an amazing time. Attending a Grouplove concert and witnessing their dedication and heart is a truly collective experience, and it was certainly nice to see a smiling crowd of New Yorkers.

We've got some more indie pop for you with Grouplove's Intchin on a Photograph , The Very Best Remix. This just dropped within the last couple weeks and is climbing to the top of the charts like Sylvester Stallone in Cliff Hanger. Grouplove is currently touring in the United States making stops all over including: Texas, Georgia, California, Tennessee, New York...we're talking EVERYWHERE. If you had a question as to which is the top of line when it comes to remixes for this song, it's this one. Or as some [...]
Got two mighty fine remixes of Grouplove 's "Itchin on a Photograph". First out is awesome Wolf Gang that for the first time remixes their friends of Grouplove. Super bonus is that the track is 100% free to download. The second remix comes from The Very Best . Not as strong, but maybe it's just because it's different from Wolf Gang's remix.
Grouplove's bonding with fans at The Fillmore, and we have free tickets so you can join them.
This week we keep everyone entertained and busy.

Even though Decibel invades Seattle, there are some other notable shows this week. A highly anticipated show with Grouplove and Alt-J at Moore Theatre on Wednesday, Bloc [...]
The leaves are starting to change, and the air is starting to feel cooler. That's right, football season is here. And what better way to celebrate the return of the country's favorite Sunday past time than with a Madden playlist? The EA Sports football franchise began way back in 1988, with it's first release for Apple II computers, and it has certainly come a long way. Through the years, it has managed to build a huge fan base, while continuing to improve the game. Adding new features and better graphics has been the series' mantra as it has become [...]

SHOWN ABOVE: Josh Jakq ‘Twas the first day of September and all through the wind, not chill was stirring though summer will soon end… Le sigh, dudes and dudettes. Summer is creeping its way out. The sweaters are on display and the kids are filling their backpacks. This is a bittersweet month. It’s the official transition from beach bonfires and flings, to snow boots and hot cocoa. I must say, I am looking forward to oversized cardigans, but summer breathes its warmth into the very depths of my soul! [...]
Ok, maybe not EVIL, per se. Or at least not to most people. Some people will find no irony in my Post Title and will think it is completely accurate. Others are going to have a fun, dancy time. I always know an idea for the podcast is a good one when I get a wicked little smile on my face. And Friday, when I thought of doing this, I got that little smile. :-D For those of you keeping score at home, this is [...]
