Fresh X: Rancid is Back with a New Album

Rancid is back with a new album "...Honor Is All We Know" out on October 27th. It's been five years since their last album and their second with Utah's own Branden Steineckert, formerly of The Used, on the drums.

In a time where most new music sounds more appropriate as a soundtrack at Whole Foods while picking out organic garlic, it's so f@$king nice to hear a pulse and attitude in music. It's even better that it's Rancid.

There is no tour scheduled yet, but Rancid live is epic, so we have our fingers crossed a tour will be posted soon.

Hit up their website to preorder the album.

Here a sampler of the new music from "...Honor is All We Know."

Fresh X: Weezer - Stream the New Album

You can finally listen to the new Weezer album, "Everything Will Be Alright in the End" a week before it's released.

To my surprise many of the so-called hipster blogs and critics have thrown high praise on this album. It could be because Ric Ocasek, who produced their "Blue" album has returned to produce this one, or perhaps it's okay to like Weezer again. Could be the music is that good.

You can decide for yourself by streaming the album over at iTunes Radio.

Enjoy,

-Corey O'Brien

Fresh X: Weezer Share Another Track From Their New Album

The new Weezer album, "Everything Will Be Alright in the End" will be out on October 7th, so I am guessing we will get a full stream of the album sometime next week. Until them the band has shared another track. This is the closest thing I have head to the "Blue Album" and it makes plenty of sense since Rick Ocasek produced that album as well. Two minutes and fourty-nine seconds of what could work as a sequel to "Buddy Holly" in spirit.

Enjoy.

Fresh X: Radiohead's Thom Yorke Release Surprise New Album

Thom Yorke is a sly guy. Last week he was teasing us by posting a short video of mysterious, white vinyl on a turntable. This led many to speculate that a new Radiohead album was in the cards.

That isn't what was in the cards. The cards of the day and Thom Yorke say it's time for a new Thom Yorke solo album. It's called "Tomorrow's Modern Boxes" and it's available via Bit Torrent here. Thom is nice enough to give a taste of the album for free with the first track, "A Brain in a Bottle" with accompanying video as a free download. For a mere $6 you can get all 8 of the tracks.

Go forth and enjoy all the bloops, beeps and melodic moans.

Fresh X: Stream Alt-J's "This Is All Yours" Corey O'Brien |

Fresh X: Stream Alt-J's

Once again the future does one thing really good: it makes it so we don't have to wait for the future to hear new music. Though Alt-J's new album isn't due out until next week, the future has made it possible for you to hear it now.

The downside is the stream is on Spotify, so by the time you actually hear any of the album it may actually be next Tuesday and you can just buy it. Spotify works okay on my phone, but I only open it on my desktop when I feel like crashing my computer.

If you manage to hear it, let us know how it is.

Alt-J will be performing at The Complex on October 27th. Get your tickets for that show here.
