Come on in, join my blog, and I'll show you my world...

White Reaper stopped by Treehouse Records to perform two songs from the debut EP, “Half Bad” and “Oh Yeah”, discuss being a band from Louisville, and tell the stories behind their songs.

Check out Japandroids Celebration Rock at #29, which doesn’t come as much surprise seeing as how 1/4 of the album showed up yesterday on Pitchfork’s 200 Best Tracks of the Decade So Far.

Here are some pics I snapped of us checking out the Elliott Smith wall in LA, discussing Vic’s love of cantaloupes, and playing shows.

The Past Is a Grotesque Animal, a brand new film documenting of Montreal’s entire existence, is out today!

Featuring exclusive interviews with Kevin Barnes as well as numerous of Montreal band members past and present + Susan Sarandon, Janelle Monae, Solange Knowles, and others, the movie is a rare peek behind the scenes from the band’s beginning until practically yesterday.
