These kids blow my mind…


Meet Unlocking The Truth – the teen¬†(they are barely teens–two of them are 13, one of them is 12) metal band from Brooklyn who recently signed a major deal with Sony after this video went viral. I read about their deal and upcoming documentary a week or two ago, but I hadn’t yet listened to them…big mistake. Even if you aren’t a metal fan, these kids deserve a listen…I can’t even…I’m in awe.



What’s the next best thing to actually attending Newport Folk Festival?


It’s NPR recording some of the live performance and posting them on their website!

They have (almost) all of the good stuff: Conor Oberst, Dawes (who just so happen to be Conor’s current backing band), Deer Tick, Nickel Creek, Aoife O’Donovan, Band of Horses, Shovels & Rope…and they have a few gems from years past, as well. (Sadly, there’s no Jack White, no Reignwolf, no Benjamin Booker, etc.)

I know what I’m going to be listening to all day today….
