Unless you've been under a rock for the past five months, you've heard of the Indie group Temper Trap. Australian natives Dougy Mandagi, Jonathon Aherne, Lorenzo Sillitto, Sebastian Kirwan, and Toby Dondas have been taking the U.S. by storm.
"It's been absolutely amazing. We're just glad to be out here and doing something," the band said. Their debut single "Sweet Disposition" hit the Billboard charts top ten almost overnight, and album Conditions became an instant classic for hungry Indie Rock lovers, seeking something out of the norm. But be careful placing them in the dreaded Indie Genre Box. "We describe it as Alternative Rock. It's alternative to things that are going on out there. Indie is such a bastardized term these days. We're trying to do something a little different," they explained.
Friday make your way down to The Electric Pickle and Dive into the sounds of thee one and only soul brotha from anotha motha, hailing from the Bundesrepublik of Deutschland, none other than Sacha dive.
You can bet Herr Dive will be taking us on a journey deeper than 26-Chilean miners searching for copper. Dive has been making his presence felt in the underground electronic music scene namely after dropping his oddly controversial EP entitled Panther this past summer. Whatever your opinions may be; like many other legendary white boy’s with soul, Bob Dylan, Elvis Presley, Robin Thicke, JT, the list could go on and on, it’s hard to deny the fact that this white boy’s got soul! Check out a few of my favorite Tracks:
Garbage is back after a five-year break. The band had splitted because of internal fights and exhausting tours, but the sad days are officialy over. Shirley Manson married Butch, and told the press the band had already recorded some few songs.
The second good news for Garbage fans ? There should be new tour next year. We just don't know when. We actually don't know much about all of this, but still they are back.
Remember Garbage had made several succesful records before such as Garbage, Version 2.0 or Beautiful Garbage.
Here they come ! Those naughty folks are once again ready to burn LA stage. I think Wu-Tang guys have always knew how to stay fresh and always bring something new. This is probably because they all had the freedom to go on solo and then come back to the crew with fresh ideas.
Anyway, all I'm saying is that they were among the best MCs, and still are. So get ready to witness the great performance of RZA, Raekwon, GZA, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, UGod, Method Man, Masta Killah, and the recent Cappadonna.
Wu-Tan Clan live at Club Nokia on December 5

The Black City Tour stops at Mighty 119 on November 6. The DJ and pop producer is well know for mixing genres with talent. You can easily notice the Detroit influence on his music. Matthew Dear will come with his whole band.
Matthew Dear has a lot of different names such as False, Jabberjaw, and Audion. His work has always been extremely clean.
His last album Black City brings us to a modern city that never sleeps. Here is what he said about it : "Well, there's a kind of timelessness to it in the sense that I don't want things to run on a 24-hour clock. It seems like a city that's always awake, maybe always dialled in electronically, and cannot be turned off. It's this imaginary weird never-sleeping town. But yeah it's full of lust, and love, and dark shadows. Weird things around the corner…"
This is going to be a great show. The singer brought with her a live string and horn section, sumptous costumes, and a impressive stage design.

Amy Winehouse's back from the undead. We already knew she was finally back in the studios for the almost divine Quincy Jones after a long, long, long period of self introspection I should say. You now have the opportunity to discover her new song. I will let you judge the song. Please don't be too difficult after those four years of debauchery.
"It's my party" is her first studio recording since a while and is produced by the usual Mark Ronson. This song will appear on the next Quincy Jones compilation named "Q: Soul Bossa Nostra." The original version of the song was procuded by Quincy Jones in 1963 and number on the Billboard for two weeks.
"Q : Soul Bossa Nostra" will be released on next Tuesday. Mary J. Blige, Usher, Jennifer Hudson, Wyclef Jean and Ludacris and others will be on the record. Have a look at the song now.
