Soundgarden | Telephantasm

A&M Records (2010)

beat list


Shardlow and Goodyear and a brand-new studio
How we think about making and consuming music is changing. It is not news that labels, albums, and record stores are dying, pushed aside by new ways of conducting the commerce of music.

Feel the beat

Odaiko New England turns 15, wails on huge drums

Girl Talk

Amy Lee opens up about Evanescence
The mostly metal and male-dominated line-up has undergone a gender makeover with the addition of the Amy Lee–fronted Evanescence at the top of the bill.

Revolution rock

Tom Morello rages quietly against the machine
It’s an incongruous sight at first: Tom Morello strumming an acoustic guitar emblazoned with the words “Whatever It Takes.”

Do you remember alt-rock radio?

Gomez, Avalon, March 6, 2007
For the first half-hour of their set last night at Avalon, Gomez failed to bring a song in under the five-minute mark. Which wasn’t such a bad thing.
