You know that feeling you get when you hear new music on the radio? I do. And it's not good. It's full of what I call "beard music" and is that folky, four on the floor with the kick drum, lets see how "ironic" we can be crap day in and day out. Then I

Bands...Is Facebook Enough?

As I stroll around the internet from time to time looking up bands for various reasons (choosing an opening act for my band, etc.), I see a growing number of artists who have gotten away from having their own website and just utilizing Facebook as their main page. Well, what's interesting is I remember writing a post on a discussion forum similar to the blog I'm writing now. Except exchange the word Facebook for Myspace.

    It may come as a surprise to music lovers on this side of the pond, but “Fire Within” is not Birdy’s debut album. “Fire Within” is actually the poetic songwriter’s second album, releasing in the U.S. while Birdy is amid a whirlwind stateside tour with Christina Perri.
