Rolling Stones debut new single "Doom and Gloom"

By Malcolm Abram Published: October 12, 2012

 Mick, Keef, Ronnie and Charlie a.k.a. The Rolling Stones (inc.) are still making music, and here's the new single from the Glimmer Twins and company that will be on their upcoming Greatist Hits compilation (yeah, that's right, yet ANOTHER compilation/touring excuse because "Tumblin' Dice and "Start Me Up" are so hard to find...)

Anyway, the tune is a sneering, chunky-chorded blues rocker with a dash of lyrical social awareness...Get ready to hear this song as the going-to-commercial music bed in every televised sports event for the next several weeks (perhaps finally pushing out the Black Keys "Gold On The Ceiling")

Brit-rockers MUSE to play "The Q" in February, tickets on sale today

By Malcolm Abram Published: October 12, 2012

I found this band's first two records pretty boring Radiohead lite, but they have certainly goten more interesting over the years and from what I've heard they put on a pretty darn good show...

CLEVELAND (October 8, 2012) – Muse returned to the Saturday Night Live stage this weekend in an episode hosted by fellow Brit Daniel Craig. The trio, who last graced Studio 8H in Season 35, started off with the dubstep-inflected "Madness," followed by "Panic Station." Both songs are from their sixth album, The 2nd Law, which came out last week. The band will be heading back to North America for their 2nd Law tour in January, making a stop at Quicken Loans Arena on February 28th.

Cleveland R&B singer Antoine Dunn to release debut album "Truth of the Matter" on Tuesday

By Malcolm Abram Published: October 10, 2012

Kudos to Mr. Dunn, a nice, talented, young man who has been working his way up the mewzik industry ladder the ol' fashioned way..earning his bones by singing in front of live people as an opening act and recording music as opposed to blanketing YouTube with cover versions of other folks songs and hoping Ellen sees you.......Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Check out his lead single under the announcement
