Live Review & Photos: Bush at REBEL, Toronto

May 18 will forever be scarred by the tragic loss of one of the greatest grunge (and overall rock n’ roll) singers of all time, Chris Cornell. On that day of shock and sadness there was a positive caveat for fans to come together and enjoy music of the same era as Bush passed through the Toronto’s Rebel Nightclub while on tour for their latest album Black and White Rainbows. After opening their 105-minute set with their very first single dating back to 1994, “Everything Zen,” frontman Gavin Rossdale commented…

STREAM: This Wild Life, “Heart-Shaped Box (Nirvana Cover)”

This Wild Life are not known for any grunge tunes, but they certainly draw influence from the genre. The acoustic duo unveiled a new cover of one of its biggest hits. TWL took Nirvana‘s classic “Heart-Shaped Box” and arranged a stripped rendition. Its softer, more delicate instrumentals make the already honest and raw song even more so. Check it out after the jump! For more This Wild Life, you can buy a CD here! Please follow and like us:

STREAM: Daddy Issues “I’m Not”

Nashville indie rocker trio Daddy Issues released a new song titled “I’m Not,” which was originally premiered on NPR. The band, which consists of singer/guitarist Jenna Moynihan, drummer Emily Maxwell and bassist Jenna Mitchell, has a grungey pop sound that sounds like something that would be featured on the soundtrack for Disney Channel’s Phil of the Future back in the day. “As a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, I spent a long time going through every reason why it had to have been my fault, until I finally started to come…

WATCH: Eddie Vedder Rocks with The Sonics at Record Store Day Show  

To me there’s nothing better than a small show. Sure, the communal good vibes of music festivals can make music a magical experience, but there’s something about the intimacy of a small venue that just gets me. Maybe it’s the ability to watch the artist up close and personal, and see them so invested in their performance. Maybe it’s that I don’t have to deal with hundreds to thousands of people. Either way, it’s great. Seattleites were in for a treat yesterday when legendary garage-rock band The Sonics played at…

STREAM: Whatever Nevermind, Nirvana Tribute Album

Nirvana has a soft spot in my heart. I’m not a huge fan of their extremely distorted grungy sound, but MTV Unplugged in New York strips all that away, and it’s one of my favorite albums of all time. But this article isn’t about that. Nirvana fans will be in for a treat, because in honor of Record Store Day, a group of bands has compiled an awesome tribute album called Whatever Nevermind via Robotic Empire. You can purchase the album in stores today or stream it online. Whatever Nevermind…

ALBUM REVIEW: Great Sale Day ‘Wild & Chunky’

For hardcore musicians Andrew Fisher (Basement), Ed McRae (previously of Your Demise), Daniel Frye (Unholy Majesty) and Ben Saker (Breaking Point), Great Sale Day is a way to have fun making music with no expectations. The result? An 11-track album where Weezer meets The Beatles and The Beach Boys in a melting pot of 90s alternative rock. Great Sale Day deceptively begins their debut album with the hard hitting guitar intro to, “Do Not Want To Know.” As soon as Fisher starts singing, the listener knows there is no chance…

Infectious Magazine’s Summer Reading List

For many people, summer is the perfect time to kick back, relax, and read. However, finding worthwhile books about music can be extremely difficult. There are countless unauthorized biographies and boring memoirs that add nothing to what you could probably find on wikipedia. So, instead of reading some misogynistic macho garbage like Mötley Crüe’s The Dirt, here are some great books written by or about musicians from every genre you could possibly think of, that will make for some great summer reading this year.
