1am – Laurie Jane & The 45’s
Coming from Scotland, and quickly following their friends in Frightened Rabbit, We Were Promised Jetpacks pulled out a crazy fun rock disc with last year’s Fat Possum debut. They’ve been so busy winning over hears in the States that they haven’t even had time to do a full tour of their home country. And they’re soccer fans, so it was a perfect time to talk World Cup!
It’s been a really long time since most of the original lineup of Modern English has played together. All the stars seem to align when their newest album, Soundtrack, and found one of the fellas hitting the stage for the first time in twenty five years with this gig. Find out how it happened below:
Divide & Conquer was one of the most melodic, breezy, and well spoken albums of 2009. Mark found us right after his early Sunday Forecastle performance to bring us up to date on his next record and the UK release of his current one.
Have you heard Against Me!’s White Crosses? It proves once again how great this band can be. The lead single “I Was A Teenage Anarchist” sets the mood for the album and could set this act in front of a much bigger audience. We grabbed Tom on the fly and got to find out what the fellas have been up to lately.
Cake is one of my favorite bands of all time. While their music can seem quirky, it’s usually underscored by deeper topics that run the gambit of world events, to personal relationships, politics, environment and everything in between. I got to ask them about all of that, as well as their first new disc in six years.
