This year we sent some of our finest writers to witness SXSW first hand and mingle. This could have been a tale of new friendships, drunken friendships, confiscated platinum passes, lost emails and missed deadlines. Oh, and there was also a lot of music… Blondfire | Clive Bar (Mood Media Day Party) Blondfire kicked off [...] The post SXSW 2013 Day 1 (feat. Blondfire, Bonaparte, Sizarr, Hands, Japandroids, Local Natives & John Talabot) appeared first on Cougar Microbes .
The sound of a band that's a collaboration between members from Belgium, Cameroon, China, and France might leave the listener scratching their head a bit, but thankfully it's as easy as hitting play on any FI/SHE/S song. The five guys in the band met in a Parisian suburb in their early twenties, and with little money and big dreams joined forces and started to work on their music, which has frequently been labeled as dream pop. After trying the names Kinda Weird Fishes and FI.SHE.S, it seems they've settled on FI/SHE/S. With this latest moniker [...]
While many people's knowledge about Peter Frampton starts and ends with his 1976 double-live album Frampton Comes Alive , the guitar-player has been impressing audiences since the age of 18, when he was a founding member of the blues-rock act Humble Pie. This summer Frampton will put his guitar playing on display as he's lined up an impressive package toured dubbed Frampton's Guitar Circus. Joining Frampton at various stops in the support slot on the lengthy summer run is a meaty [...]

The Top MP3s have gone through many incarnations since the beginning of Consequence of Sound in 2007. What used to be an exhaustive roundup of all the singles, remixes, covers, and undiscovered gems emailed to us any given week evolved into a compilation whittled down to our 10 favorite new songs. For 2013, we’re again changing up the format with the hope of giving our selections some added weight. We’re still posting about our 10 favorite songs, but they’ll be ordered in quality from 10-1.

Now warming up for the release of their fifth full-length in seven years, San Francisco duo The Dodos haven't exactly held us forever rapt over the course of their discography. Sophomore recording Visiter was a personal fave, although elsewhere they've faltered for want of a more tender term as Meric Long and Logan Kroeber have often fallen for the predictable, or worse still the plainly soporific. Though if a perfunctory peek into the inner workings of the forthcoming Carrier should be any genuine yardstick, then they've set their sights far higher than they have of late, and [...]

I could name quite a few, a lot really, bands that receive more acclaim than Local Natives . Bands that don't possess anywhere near the talent that this Californian five piece does. But let's not be negative. Let's just enjoy this band for what they are and what they bring. A band of immaculate harmonies, supreme rhythms, insane melodies, gut checking emotions and great personality. Yeah, you could say I think Local Natives are ultra special. If you were at Wednesday's night show at the Metro Theatre you would know what I mean. The room was filled [...]
Craig Kief Spring is only barely here - the past few days' weather notwithstanding - but the concert announcement machine is already making eyes at Autumn with the unveiling of a couple of pretty high profile tours coming through town when the leaves start to change and the days get shorter.

Seguro, a lo largo de estos meses hemos estado escuchando varios remixes de los sencillos que encabezan el más reciente álbum de Local Natives , pero creo que no estaba esperando que ellos mismos decidieran alterar las bases originales de una de sus canciones, así como ahora lo han hecho con "Wooly Mammoth", al cambiarle toda la estructura que encontramos en la toma original de " Hummingbird " para transformarla en este interesante experimento que decidieron nombrar como "Wooly Robot". No sé, no sé, pero algo tiene Local Natives que hace de sus canciones algo sumamente adictivo, [...]
