For a while, it looked like the world was never going to hear a sixth Deftones album. After the release of 2006′s Saturday Night Wrist, the band had planned a follow up, Eros, to be released in 2009.

Brooke Nipar fell in love with her grandfather’s 35mm Camera as a teenager which inspired her to study photography at The Art Center College of Design in Pasadena.

The five years between Si*Sé’s last album, More Shine, and its new five-song EP, Gold, were not spent in vain. With the rapid shift in how people consume and experience music, the New York City-based band was waiting for the right opportunity to strike out on its own.

Serena Ryder sings with conviction; she’s sexy but she also sounds like she could kick your ass. The Canadian, Juno Award-winning singer-songwriter played the intimate City Winery on February 25 to audience cheers and turned the place into a sing-a-long that fans appreciated by the show’s end.

Though I’ve been an avid consumer of music for as long as I can remember, eagerly gobbling up sounds from every genre and era, it wasn’t until recently that I realized I had a major musical blind spot: China.

When it comes to Justin Tracy’s music there’s a good deal of truth in the saying ”Music is what feelings sound like.” I remember just about a year ago we were headed downtown and I can assure you that we witnessed an brilliant intimate show by the British singer Justin Tracy.

On their major-label debut album Stages, Vedera have at last been able to capture the magic that has made them such a hot live property over the past few years. The Kansas City, Missouri-based quartet, fronted by Kristen May, have toured incessantly since releasing their first EP in 2004, honing their sound and building their considerable fanbase the grassroots way — one fan at a time.

Stadium-sized “Posner” chants took over the Blender Theatre at Gramercy while a waft of marijuana emanated its way throughout. Posner emerged sharply dressed in a blue and red leather jacket, kicks and a black button-down, cupping his right ear to the crowd on that side of the stage, then making his way to the other side with his left.

Mike Posner is the current it-boy of the college scene and he’s quickly emerging with a lot of mainstream buzz following the creation of two dorm room-produced mixtapes, “A Matter of Time” in March 2009 and most recently “One Foot Out The Door” in October.

A classic rock obsessive, Whittle encouraged Justin to make SPW more grandiose. “We wanted to make filthy party hits; bring the party back to rock’n’roll and back to New York City.” Whittle says. “The songs Justin had already written were great songs, but they didn’t have super-catchy choruses.

For fans of the addictively-catchy indie-pop sounds of The Shins, the news that broke this January – that lead guitarist vocalist James Mercer would be taking a break from the band until at least 2011 – was discouraging, to say the least.

I once read a quote about design, it reads: Design should never say, “Look at me.” It should always say, “Look at this.” that’s the exact feeling that Adrian Wilson achieves when you browse his photographs.

Michael Cavayero was born in New York City and raised in Merrick and Syosset, NY, two Long Island suburbs. He received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from New York University in 2009, and studied at the Cooper Union School of Art and Harvard’s Graduate School of Design GSD in Cambridge, MA

If everything was right in the world, PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem’s life would feel a lot like a Kit-Kat commercial right about now. Why? Because after his comments in response to Tiger Woods’ press conference Friday, everyone should have just one request for Finchem – give me a break.

By many people’s standards, naming your band Zeus is a somewhat pretentious move. While shows of extravagance aren’t exactly unheard of in the world of entertainment, coming out and implying that your musical skill is Olympic in nature could definitely rub some listeners and critics the wrong way. Given the name, then, it’s surprising just how unpretentious and understated Zeus sounds on their debut full-length, Say Us. The album is refreshingly absent of self-aggrandizing statements and pomp; Say Us instead delivers subtle bolts of lightning in the form of catchy, creative sounds that are often gritty but never a grind to get through.

He’s a brilliant illustrator, and when I mean a brilliant illustrator I mean he is absolutely brilliant, and unique.
