    New Toadies MP3: "No Deliverance"

    Since Toadies frontman Vaden Todd Lewis spilled the beans to on the '90s alt-rock act's much-anticipated new record, No Deliverance (out Aug. 19), their fervent fan base -- including us here at Spin HQ -- have been anxiously awaiting a sneak peek of the long overdue set. Well, wait no more fans, it's finally here; Lay your ears on "No Deliverance," the first album leak heard outside the studio walls. With bluesy bass figures, Lewis' fuzzed-over, creaky voice, and a noisy, guitar-laden shout-along chorus, the tune surely rocks, but don't expect a recreation of the Toadies' 1994 smash, "Possum Kingdom." Here, the band swap the aforementioned hit's tuneful, melodic heights for grinding guitars and driving, hard rock renderings.

And while we wait to board our trains, planes, and automobiles for the trip down south, highlights from last year's festival are in constant rotation at Spin HQ. Among them, a video interview with Austin, TX-bred indie rockers Spoon. Watch video of our Peter Gaston chatting up Spoon's Britt Daniel and Jim Eno about the festival's dicey weather conditions and "exceptional crowd," posing next to a port-a-john on Spin's May '07 cover shoot, and Mr. Eno's run-in with the local police -- and we're not talking about the festival headliners fronted by Sting.

    My Morning Jacket

    What? It's been a long, strange trip for Louisville, KY's My Morning Jacket. For a decade, frontman Jim James and co. have ventured into various sonic frontiers, from reverb-drenched country to reggae. And tomorrow, the quintet -- on the cover of Spin's May issue -- release their latest and most adventurous outing, the acclaimed set Evil Urges, which finds MMJ exploring the depths of Prince-esque funk, ballroom ballads, and -- most importantly -- good ole Southern rock. Who? My Morning Jacket, founded in 1998, now comprises Jim James (guitar/vocals), Tom ("Two-Tone Tommy") Blankenship (bass), Patrick Hallahan (drums), Carl Broemel (guitars), and Bo Koster (keyboards). After releasing two excellent full-lengths, The Tennessee Fire and At Dawn, they were signed to major label offshoot (and Dave Matthews-founded) ATO Records in 2003.

  • Boy George Plots Summer Tour of North America

    Boy George Plots Summer Tour of North America

    Who? Culture Club-fronting, "Karma Chameleon"-singing, not-exactly-law-abiding singer Boy George, who is known as much for his gorgeous voice as he is for his garish style. What? A 25-date tour beginning in Aspen, CO July 10. From there, George will stop into Las Vegas and California, including a two-date residency at Los Angeles' El Rey Theatre. Next, the tour skips north of the border for a handful of dates, runs along America's East Coast, and finally concludes with three shows in the Lone Star State. Should I go? Why not? You're bound to hear songs you recognize, as Boy George and Culture Club sold over 100 million singles and 50 million full-length albums in their 1980s heyday.

    New Team Robespierre MP3: "Billz"

    Dance-rock and socio-political messages have been strange bedfellows since Gang of Four's early 1980s heyday, and with Team Robespierre's "Billz," a tune of their just released EP Bad Habit, the unrest continues as the Brooklyn-based quintet offer a logical extension of Andy Gill's capitalist-baiting tendencies. Team Robespierre lift a page out of the Four's playbook by chanting in unison, "There are things that I want / These are things that we need," before finally admitting, "Good times cost too much." The jarring shouts of "Who needs money?" that end the track might motivate you to start a riot; however, the 8-bit synths and steady drum work will keep your body on the dance floor.
