Before you set out to hotswap, go through the instructions two to three times if you are familiar with such things. Ok, first up, Credit card is the only officially supported payment method. When you acquire a Playstation Network PSN Card you just enter the code and Sony credits you best suited.

Post image for Our Top 10 Summer Bands

Summer is now in full swing, and I couldn’t be happier. To me, music is an essential aspect of this season. Whether I am going for a walk, relaxing on the beach, or even just chilling in my apartment with the windows open, it is essential that I have good music playing. I always find myself coming back to certain bands in the summertime — both new and old, they are the ones that always seem to capture the exact feeling of summer that I want to surround myself with. So here they are, my top ten summer bands — who would make your list? Read more »

Post image for Devendra Banhart Live At Union Transfer

I remember when I was first introduced to Devendra… It was during my university days. My best friend and I stalked a band on Myspace and went to see them when they played at a small venue in Bristol. After the show we had a few drinks with the members and — as you’d expect when you socialize with a band — music was the number one subject. They told us to listen to Devendra Banhart and so we did… and we fell in love. Read more »

Looks good and I think it is a good place to listen to the music alone.

I saw him last month and it was amazing! I am so blown away by artists who are such great performers that they sound better live. Loved every minute of it.

Summer and good music go hand in hand…there’s nothing better than going for a drive with the windows down and good music on the radio, or relaxing outside with a cool drink in hand and good tunes playing in the background. Here are three new albums that I love right now — what are you currently listening to? Share in the comments! Read more »

Post image for New Music We Love: Meet Aussie Band Alpine!

It seems like ages ago that I was in Austin for SXSW, when in reality it was only a couple of months ago. But I still remember very clearly being in a dimly lit room with oriental carpets for Rdio’s private recording session with Alpine. Read more »

Post image for Who’s Playing At Sasquatch 2013? Listen To Our Playlist!

I have always wanted to go to Sasquatch Music Festival. Mostly because of the scenery – it just looks so incredibly beautiful. I imagine I’d spend more time just staring out at the gorgeous scenery than actually watching the bands (but hey, you can always listen to them). Read more »

Post image for Music Highlights From BottleRock Napa

The memories of BottleRock festival came flooding back today after looking through our photo albums. Beautiful moments were captured and one of the most prominent was the incredible lineup the festival hosted, from Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros to The Black Keys. It was a festival that was non-stop. Great act after great act graced us each day and come the evening we were blown away with an incredible headliner – BottleRock did not want us to forget about this festival, that’s for sure.

obviously like your web site however you have to test the spelling on several of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very troublesome to tell the truth however I'll surely come again again.
