Critical Questions: Paul Buchanan On His Solo Debut

Thirty years after The Blue Nile debuted with a little-heard, still-rare single called I Love This Life, and eight years after the Glaswegian trio quietly dissolved, singer-songwriter Paul Buchanan re-emerged earlier this year with his first solo album, Mid Air.

James Franco Directs R.E.M. Video

James Franco’s ongoing journey continues with his newly released video for R.E.M.’s posthumous single, “That Someone Is You”?

Johnny Marr Of The Smiths Is Releasing His Own Solo Album

Former guitarist of The Smiths and session artist extraordinaire, Johnny Marr has announced plans to release his debut solo album early next year. The Messenger will be released on February 25 in the United Kingdom through Warner, and February 26 in the United States through Sire.

Veronica Falls Releases The First Video From Their Forthcoming Album Waiting For Something to Happen

Our favorite morbid indie poppers Veronica Falls have shared the first music video from their forthcoming sophomore effort, Waiting For Something to Happen. Teenage is a super 8 effort that thankfully doesn’t feature a killer alien who just needs to hear that everything’s gonna be okay.
