Quantcast

Oddly enough, it was almost exactly one month ago when we last caught up with METROPOLIS AMERICA, when the Philly New Wavers last dropped some FREE MUSIC for the masses. Now, the band is back with "A Stolen Heart in a Stolen Car," a brand-new FREE DOWNLOAD, and they've released a music video to go along with it. Check it out below...

archercoverStraight out of Perth, Australia comes ARCHER & LIGHT, who are delivering their first-ever music video this week for their song, "Melbourne (I Used to Be Your All)." The band cites Bright Eyes, Bon Iver, Wilco, The Temper Trap, Death Cab for Cutie and Radiohead among their influences as they blend indie rock with folk, pop and electronica on their debut EP, OUR LOVE IS CONFETTI (available on iTunes now). Check out the video below and let me know what you think...

I was lucky to see NIRVANA on their IN UTERO Tour when it came through Davenport, Iowa on October 22, 1993. I also remember catching their famed LIVE AND LOUD performance when it initially aired on MTV in an amended, New Year's Eve presentation, and being bummed to learn that what they presented was not even half of the full show. Now, 20 years later, that LIVE AND LOUD performance will be seen in it's entirety when it arrives on DVD next Tuesday (pre-order via Walmart), alongside a massive IN UTERO reissue collection (full details posted here). Get a taste with NIRVANA's performances of "Scentless Apprentice" (one of my favorites) and "Heart-Shaped Box" below....

bsgatheredBLACK SABBATH have announced a November 26 release date for BLACK SABBATH: LIVE... GATHERED IN THEIR MASSES, a concert DVD that was filmed at the Melbourne, Australia dates of their recent "13" World Tour, that just wrapped-up on September 3. While full details an artwork have yet to be revealed, the band hit YouTube with a short trailer earlier today. Check it out on The Rock Father below...

Written by

Paul McCartney - NEWOn October 15, PAUL McCARTNEY will release his new album... entitled, NEW. Available for pre-order on iTunes right now, the regular album will feature a dozen new songs, all detailed below. The Deluxe Edition will feature a pair of bonus tracks, the names of which have not yet been revealed. Take a peek at the details, along with some words from Paul below. The very BEATLES-esque title track is available as an instant download with pre-orders.

edkcoverOn October 29, ED KOWALCZYK will release THE FLOOD AND THE MERCY (Soul Whisper/Harbour/Caroline Records), his second full-length solo album since his departure from the band LIVE in 2009. Produced by Jamie Candiloro (R.E.M., Ryan Adams, Willie Nelson) and mixed by Tom Lord-Alge (Rolling Stones, Peter Gabriel, Santana), THE FLOOD AND THE MERCY features guest appearances by Rachael Yamagata and R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck. The album is set to hit Europe early to coincide with Kowalczyk's I ALONE Acoustic Tour. Check out the first single, "Seven," below...

sogcrewIt's not every day that I get an email about a FREE DOWNLOAD being offered by a Candidate for Governor of the State of California. Those odds are even slimmer when we're talking about a hip-hop artist, but that's exactly what happened today. Dr. Robert ‘Battle Ax’ Ornelas of the S.O.G. Crew made headlines last year as the first Latin American to make a run for Vice President, and he's already announced a 2014 run for the top spot in Cali. But first, there's some music, and today the S.O.G. Crew is serving up an unmastered version of "No More War," produced by T-Nut, of The Pricks Nuthouse Studios (Eastsiders, Snoop Dogg) and mixed by Jeff Gibbs (Bone Thugs, 3-6-Mafia, The Game). Check it out...

koffinkatsOn October 22, Sailor's Grave Records will release BORN OF THE MOTOR, the new album from Detroit rockers, THE KOFFIN KATS. The new album is said to be "a sonic homage to their resident city and its blue-collar legacy, and a metaphor for being hard-wired towards hard work and persistent ambition," with the band "waving a proud flag soiled with blood, sweat and whiskey—defying the decay and chaos that has stained their city in recent years." Check out the tracklisting and tour dates below...

etaimmortalOn September 17, EVE TO ADAM will release their new album, LOCKED & LOADED (3for5 / MRI / Sony Red). The band recently-released the second single from the album, "Immortal," which follows "Straightjacket Supermodel" in giving listeners a taste of the new record. I've got the new track streaming right here on The Rock Father, so check it out...

phantasyI have never played a RAYMAN video game, so this week's release of RAYMAN LEGENDS from Ubisoft flew right under The Rock Father Radar. But this song inspired by the game... a new collaboration between INCUBUS’ founding members Dirk Lance and Jose Pasillas II, along with former PHARCYDE MC Slimkid3 and JURASSIC 5’s DJ Nu-Mark... it grabbed me. "Picture Perfect Phantasy" by 4 PLAYER CO-OP, is available now as a FREE DOWNLOAD via this link, with the video available to stream below...

Written by

Philadelphia New Wavers METROPOLIS AMERICA are tackling an interesting situation - having a crush on a close friend - on their recent single release, "Bittersweet." While the track hit speakers for the first time last month, it just hit my inbox here at Rock Father HQ this evening, and while the girls are all tucked-in, I've been stealthily listening to this track and others from the band for the past hour. Check out the video for "Bittersweet" below, and if you dig it - snag the track as a FREE DOWNLOAD via  Soundcloud. While you're there, you can pick up additional FREE DOWNLOADS from METROPOLIS AMERICA including "A Burden of Our Youth."

Listen: SKINDRED - "Ninja" #KillThePower

Written by

I dig SKINDRED. Actually, I've dug frontman Benji Webbe going back to DUB WAR (I still have my original PAIN CD that came out on Earache in the mid 90s), and SKINDRED's TASTE OF CHAOS Christmas release, "Jungle Bells" is a seasonal staple here at Rock Father HQ. Now, SKINDRED is prepping to release a new album called KILL THE POWER, and I'm looking forward to it. When will it come out? Only they know for sure... but they've unleashed the "Ninja" with a brand-new track that you can stream below. Give it a listen and let me know what you think...
