Matt Nathanson
Matt Nathanson, the Massachusetts man with the sweet guitar and even sweeter voice, will be coming through Madison on November 12th with Joshua Radin to serenade the masses at the Barrymore theater. The tickets for that show go on sale at 10 AM today, so be sure to get on those quickly if you don't want to miss out. Here's a sample from his new album to give you some motivation:

Smith Westerns
Prior to their Live on King Street performance last friday, the Chicago-based Smith Westerns came through to record a Live from Studio M session. Needless to say, our staff here were more than impressed with the band's melodic tunes and overall mellow vibe. Take a listen to a cut off of their new album:

Artist: Smith Westerns
Hail From: Chicago, IL
Song: 3 A.M. Spiritual
Album: Soft Will
Sounds Like: Deerhunter, Girls

Lone Bellow

This week's Gabby's Pick is a song called Bleeding Out from a band out of Brooklyn called Lone Bellow.

Formed by old friends in the south, the band began as a songwriting project when Zach William's wife was injured in an accident. He began putting his thoughts together in rhyme, then set them to music. He and his friends vowed that if his wife recovered, they  would move to NY and start their career.

We're very happy she recovered, as the result is very emotionally passionalte songs.
Their self-titled debut album is available now.

World's Worst iPod:Escape Club "Wild Wild West"
Remember when we were headed for the 90s..and grooving to the Escape Club? This band from London scored a number 1 hit in 1988 with the song "Wild Wild West." It's probably the only song you remember from that band--but they weren't a One Hit...

World's Worst iPod: Wayne Newton "Daddy Don't You Walk So Fast"
With Father's Day coming up, we thought we'd choose one of the greatest dad songs of all time. But since that song wasn't on the iPod, we decided to go with "Daddy Don't You Walk So Fast" by Wayne Newton. This song made it all the way...

Day 4: The Final Day of Bonnaroo
Today was another busy day at Bonnaroo. We started the day off by seeing Shakey Graves. I missed his show in Madison earlier this year so he was a must see on my list. Loved him! Right as he ended, a press conference with Ed Helms, Abigail...

Saturday was a very busy day! So many Triple M bands to see! So many concerts were back to back, so we did a lot of walking back and forth from the stages to the media compound. If you're ever in need of getting more steps in during the day,...

Day 2: Friday - Variety, the Spice of Life
Day 2 is upon us! Despite being up fairly late and not sleeping super well (first time camping...I'll get used to it I'm sure), I was hoping to sleep in just a little bit, but my body had other plans. It woke me up at 5:45am for the hell of it. I...

World's Worst iPod: Engelbert Humperdinck "After the Lovin'"
One of the great things about radio in the 60s and 70s is the variety of music that made it onto the radio. A rock song by Led Zeppelin could be followed up by Paul Anka or Andy Williams. A polka could make it to top 40 right alongside a disco song or a...
