From 1999 and 7, yes seven, album later, Rise Against are about to release "The Black Market" next Tuesday, July 15th you can officially purchase the album, but if you can't wait head over to iTunes radio and check it right now.
Their music slightly rusty, but in a good way and literary in verse. They are named after a keyboard shortcut. Their first single, "Fitzpleasure" is based on a novel called "Last Exit to Brooklyn" that isn't exactly family-friendly - nor mainstream. Somehow, beyond all those reasons many people found Alt-J to be something unique and interesting, which is not an easy feat these days. Pop music has taken over like weeds in the modern rock's garden.
Alt-J is following up their fantastic album, "An Awesome Wave" with "This Is All Yours" on September 22nd, which you can pre-order here.
Check you the first single "Left Hand Free" and album track, "Hunger of the Pine" below and catch them at The Complex on October 22nd. You can click here for tickets.
LISTEN TO THE INTERVIEW HERE
How did you get involved with the Oddball Comedy Festival?
I’ve had a good relationship with Funny or Die and when they were formulating this tour they started grabbing people that they know and people that they like. That was pretty much it. It was pretty mellow. It was just like, “Hey do you want to do this thing?”
Did you start in comedy?
No, I had actually started in music and was very serious about it for a very long time, but I had done some comedy, drama, and improv in grade school and high school. It was definitely part of my upbringing; I just didn’t make it more formal until I moved to New York in 2003.
How did you get involved with Comedy Bang Bang?
I was involved from the beginning. I had done Scott’s LIVE show and Podcast, as well as written the Comedy Bang Bang Theme song when it was a podcast, so it was a natural evolution from there.
You were part of ‘America’s Next Top Model’ last year as a fake director and nobody knew who you were. What was that like?
It was a surprise to me too. It was really, really fun wearing a stupid disguise which I improvised before getting on camera since they didn’t have a wardrobe for me. I just told them to grab me these few things, so I grabbed a woman’s sweater to wear.

Hey, Organized Intern here, again. Just wanted to share the before & afters from the Room of Acquirement ... because who doesn't love a good before & after?!
If you don't know what I'm talking about, read this, and then behold, the glory of an organized room!
That is one room (studio?) ready for The Big Move! Now we just need to box up the cubicles, production booths, offices, and most importantly, the X96 Studio! I'm in heaven... and yes, I brought my label maker.
