Matt Sharp Talks new Rentals Music and Weezer -

Matt Sharp, formerly of Weezer, talks to Flavorwire about the new Rentals album and his influence on Weezer’s early albums.
Would it have been any better or much worse? Would people have said, “Oh my God, Weezer’s in Nashville making an acoustic record!”? Maybe! Or maybe people would have said, “This is the most boring record I’ve heard in my fucking life!” There’s this idea that I would have been a one remedy fix-all, but there’s also that possibility of, “be careful what you wish for.” Maybe it would have been a much bleaker thing with me in there. Who knows? I would have maybe put us down very pretentious roads.

Sirens and Sailor Buglarized -

Sirens and Sailor's van was burglarized the other day and they are taking donations.
Every single dollar we brought with us, every single penny that we have earned over the past month of touring overseas has been stolen. Licenses, credit cards, essential medical supplies, laptops, electronic equipment, even down to our toiletries, GONE. In a matter of minutes, our livelihood has been taken from us. Our dream come true has become the exact opposite.

Brian Fallon Interview On Canoe -

Brian Fallon talked with Canoe about The Gaslight Anthem's new album.
Well, the record is what I did during difficulties. But I wouldn’t say the record is directly about the difficulties — not as much as people think. I’m not writing a news column. It’s not like, here’s the details and here’s the street name. It’s not the Kardashians, it’s a band. I want to write songs people can relate to right away. But I try to write in a broader sense. So it may seem very specific, but it’s not necessarily about the things you think. It’s a funny way of trying to articulate yourself in a song, and sometimes it’s very difficult.
