Matchbox Twenty streams up a new one.

Despite Rob Thomas having a fair share of solo stardom, I'm glad he never forgot the rest of his lads at Matchbox Twenty. Their latest album, Exile on Mainstream will be out in stores come October 2, 2007.

It's a double-disc release but with just 6 brand new tracks. The rest, well, sort of like a greatest hit thing to fill up the gaps. I mean, why not just come up with another 5 tracks and have a full album? The lead single (How far we've come) is already being played around and well, it's pretty catchy.

Pre-orders are available at where you could get exclusive band items.

Stereophonics' new album - October 1, 2007

The welsh lads are back with their 6th studio release. Yup, after 2 years, Stereophonics are back! Frontman Kelly Jones spoke to XFM:

"It’s a big sounding record with the energy of the last album but the big choruses and big songs of Performance And Cocktails. It’s a good mix of what we've been up to."

Well, it better be, after being around the scene for 10 years already. Sadly, the album is only set for the UK market for now. For you downloaders, the albums leaked, so there...I'm not promoting piracy whatsoever.

Silence has a sound

Probably the best I've heard from Australia after Silverchair and Powderfinger. The Silents, hail from Perth and pack a punch of garage styled psychedelic rock. Yeah, you probably never heard of these mates yet because they're still in the midst of recording their debut album which is due end of 2007. I've somehow coincidently managed to get hold of a track of theirs, 'Shock & Awe' and it blew my mind away, never expected it to come from down under! The foursome released their debut EP, Flicker and Flames in 2006 with the lead track, 'Nightcrawl'.
So, keep a lookout for Silents, it's gonna be trashy raw!

Kula Shaker awakes from slumber

One of the most psychedelic music I've ever heard come from this lads. I honestly thought they had laid everything down to rest till just now when i came across an article saying that they're back with a new album. KUDOS!

Their new album, Strangefolk is out now and from what I've heard, they're still kicking it old school. They sure do sound 'KULA' .
