Even the industrial metal genre has its masterpieces
Jack White is so hell bent on preserving the past that he's taking it upon himself to do the job with his Third Man record label. Previously, the Third Man imprint teamed up with the blues label Document Records to reissue the likes of Charlie Patton, Blind Willie McTell and the Mississippi Sheiks. Now, according to CoS , White's label is working with Sun Records to reissue 73 singles from Johnny Cash (19562s 'Get Rhythm'/'I Walk The Line'), Rufus Thomas (19532s 'Bear Cat'/'Walking in the Rain'), and The Prisonaires (19532s 'Baby Please'/'Just [...]
Earlier this year, Jack White' s Third Man Records partnered with blues label Document Records for an extensive reissue campaign involving artists such as Charley Patton, Blind Willie McTell, and The Mississippi Sheiks. Now, Third Man Records has forged a similar partnership with Tennessee's Sun Records to reissue 45rpm 73s from its iconic catalog. The initial three releases include Johnny Cash's 1956 "Get Rhythm", which featured the little known B-Side "I Walk the Line"; Rufus Thomas' 1953 single "Bear Cat" featuring Joe Hill Louis on guitar; and The Prisonaires' 1953 single [...]
In an attempt to save you (not to mention ourselves) from the general Monday-morning awfulness that tends to follow a lovely spring weekend, Flavorwire has compiled a playlist of indie/rock/generally guitar-based songs that are genuinely funny. These are 20 of the flat-out wittiest and most amusing songs we know - and we guarantee that at least one of them will make you chuckle. (Note: we're discounting actual comedy songs here, so no Lonely Island/Flight of the Conchords/etc.) Keep the hilarity going by adding to our list in the comments. [...]
Johnny Cash’s longtime friend and right-hand man, visionary Nashville artist Chance Martin is delighted to announce the first-ever reissue of his 1981 private-press masterpiece In Search, out July 16 on Paradise of Bachelors....
This is admittedly a few days late, but Phosphorescent performed a pretty great rendition of "Song for Zula" on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last week. Featured on the band's wonderful sixth album Muchacho , it might be my early favorite song of 2013. Opening with a reference to Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire," "Song for Zula" seemingly explores the deep antipathy caged animals must feel towards humans. It's possibly much more allegorical than that, as Zula is the name of a small town in Africa (hence the references to desert plains) - as well [...]
Some say love... it is a river... No? It is a burning thing? Oh, and it makes a fiery ring... Damnit. The first line of this song is so deceiving and clearly pays homage to multiple songs. Either way, it starts a pretty great new song from Phosphorescent , "Song for Zula" off their newest album, Muchacho . Check out the song and go buy the album, thanks.
A Place To Bury Strangers' exclusive Record Store Day release "Strange Moon," is a tribute to Portland punk veterans Dead Moon on 123 colored vinyl (for those vinyl fetishists out there). In conjunction with the record, the band released this statement: "I first saw Dead Moon perform around 1992. Dead Moon was my friends favorite band and soon to become one [...] The post A Place to Bury Strangers does Dead Moon, and the Question of Covers appeared first on Your Music Is Awful.com .

Filed under: News , Exclusive , Holy Hell , The Hit List AFP Music has a peculiar power. It's long been known that listening to classical music -- the Mozart Effect -- can help students preparing for exams. And a gardening expert recently discovered that plants actually become stronger and more disease resistant if they're exposed to Black Sabbath 's "Sweat Leaf" and other rockers. [...]
"Song for Zula" at first listen reminded me of a slowed down, eerier version of Johnny Cash and U22s collaboration in "Wanderer." Additionally, with the repetitious line "love is a burning thing" it's hard not to make some sort of mention of the man in black. Phosphorescent's newest track is one that the emphasis should be on the lyrics and the music just provides a platform to present the message to the listener. You can find this tune on their most recent and critically acclaimed album, Muchacho .
Bo Cendars and his eclectic madness machine continues this week care of Country & Western legend Johnny Cash, Dutch jazz singer Caro Emerald, and a weird and notable mashup containing one of hardcore's notable past anthems as Nakatomi's 'Children Of The Night.' I think it's due time for a re-release Sony BMG. Don't you? BONUS!

Les Claypool jams with Jerry Cantrell in a pretty acoustic setting, and it is awesome as hell. Apparently Les Claypool has been doing something called Duo de Twang with Marc Haggard of M.I.R.V., but that's hardly news. What is, however, is that Jerry Cantrell decided to sit in with the guys and jam on some ...

The task of assessing the various musics of Edwyn Collins when dislocated from the man himself is, perhaps inevitably, an intensely problematic one. The onetime Orange Juice songsmith suffered from a debilitating double brain haemorrhage back in early 2005, after which he set about reacquainting his body with the abilities so many of us now take for granted. Those of being able to read, write, write music and even walk, and though he could quite feasibly have been forgiven for wallowing in pitiful misery forevermore, he's never even so much as seemed to have done so. And so [...]
We all know the terrible effects of smoking cigarettes, and yet, in true alignment with the fickleness of human nature, we smoke them anyway. Scientific data can't explain away the extra edge that smoking infuses situations with—something undeniably cool and subversive lies in a habit that assuredly leads to death. Who then, is more likely to praise and pontificate upon the nature of nicotine addiction than the eccentric and unnatural being known as the musician? Often self-proclaimedly crazy or warped, musical artists are forced to adopt unpredictable touring schedules, deal with fame, battle artistic blocks and changes—the list goes [...]
photo It’s time again for Friday on My Mind , our weekly blog post where we look at videos centered around one common topic. This is a collaborative effort between KEXP and King 5 News. This week we are paying tribute to the Man in Black himself, Johnny Cash. This past Tuesday, February 26th, marked what would have been the 81st birthday of Johnny Cash. Cash began writing songs before his 12th birthday. He performed frequently on KLCN, an Arkansas radio station, as a teenager. Upon graduating from high school in [...]
