I feel that I'm pretty much obligated to share the new video from LOCAL H here on The Rock Father. The reason? LOCAL H actually are local to the area surrounding Rock Father HQ. And this new track, "Another February" spawned a new EP that will be released digitally on February 5th (CD copies will only be available at the...
"Closer" is one of my least favorite NINE INCH NAILS songs. I love some NIN, and I saw 'em live way back in '94 when they toured with MARILYN MANSON and THE JIM ROSE CIRCUS. That song, though? Never grabbed me. Now, Los Angeles-based STARS IN STEREO have given the song a shot of rock with a new cover...
I know I might get a little flack for this, but I've never been a big JANIS JOPLIN fan. My wife on the other hand... she's about as big a Janis fan as you'll find. In fact, her love of Joplin is why I have a 1968 concert poster and a couple of other pieces of Janis memorabilia hanging...

If you're visiting The Rock Father, there's a solid chance that you're a rocker... but are you an EARTH ROCKER? That's the title of the new album from CLUTCH (due out March 2013 via Weathermaker Music), and the title track has now been unleashed via Brooklyn Vegan. The track hit the web today alongside a new interview with guitarist...
ANTHONY JESELNIK is one of my favorite active stand-up comedians. His 2010 album entitled SHAKESPEARE (read my review here) still gets play here at Rock Father HQ (when the kids are in bed), and now there's finally some new material on the horizon. Jeselnik will return to Comedy Central for the world premiere of his original one-hour stand-up special,...

"Control" comes from THE INDECENT, a band that I covered a couple of years back while I was writing for another outlet. "Control" is the title track from the NY-based...
