British singer-songwriter Mika kicked off the weekend with a sold-out show at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn last night (April 12).
When they joined Nirvana on the 'MTV Unplugged' stage nearly 20 years ago, Meat Puppets already had a good 10 years under their belts. Fifteen albums later, the Kirkwood brothers -- singer-guitarist Curt and bassist Cris, backed by drummer Shandon Sahm -- are still making the rounds, playing a mix of classics and tunes from their latest album, 'Rat Farm.' Last night (April 3), the alt-rock legends stopped in New York City for the first of two Mercury Lounge shows, and Diffuser.fm was there to capture the moment. Check out our exclusive photos below.
We know. It's the weekend, and you don't want to do a lot of heavy lifting. We totally get that. That's why our look back at indie rock's past week is told with minimal words and lots of pretty pictures
Flaming Lips are taking their connection with candy and desire to appeal to all of your senses even further. Frontman Wayne Coyne recently Instagrammed a photo of a large chocolate brain, complete with all the the crevices and folds. He then revealed that every single one of the band's recordings will be issued inside these life-sized choco-noggins. It's so cerebral and so sweet -- literally. Sounds delish ... we think.
Last night (March 25), Sigur Rós graced New York City with their presence for the second time in 12 months, and with the help of dim lighting, string and horn sections and the ethereal voice of Jonsi Birgisson, the Icelandic band managed to turn the city's largest venue into an intimate concert hall. Luckily, Diffuser.fm was front and center -- check out our exclusive photos below.
Pearl Jam are making progress on their new album, and it will feature a contribution from Incubus guitarist Mike Einziger. How do we know his? Well, for one thing, the axeman tweeted a photo of himself, his lady love and the one and only Eddie Vedder, frontman for PJ, revealing that he is "recording strings" for the new platter. That's just about all the proof we need that stuff is happening.
There’s nothing better at the start of a work week than a bit of soulful rock 'n' roll, and Vintage Trouble offer just that. This radiant group of L.A. musicians gave East Coast fans a real treat last night (March 4) at New York City's Highline Ballroom, where -- with a little help from the talented band Leogun -- they brought the house down.
