Stream Conor Oberst’s “Fast Friends”


Though Record Store Day was three days ago, it doesn’t mean that all the special songs and records that were purchased won’t be making their way onto the internet.

Previously we have had the chance to listen to fun.’s debut demo, Point and Light, Jack White gave us two versions of his new track “Lazaretto,” Green Day releases Demolicious and Paramore released a B-side in honor of the music lover’s favorite holiday. We can now add a B-side track titled “Fast Friends” from Conor Oberst to that list.

This new B-side is the first piece of news that we have gotten from the Bright Eyes frontman since those accusations against him were made earlier this year. Another bright side for the singer, his new album Upside Down Mountain will be available on May 21 through Nonesuch Records.

Until then, you can stream Oberst’s “Fast Friends” below until his new record is officially on shelves in a month’s time.

Taking Back Sunday Stream B-Side


It’s only been one day since Taking Back Sunday released their new album, Happiness Is…, but that hasn’t stopped the band from releasing a B-side track from it. The song though, does appear on the B-side of  Flicker, Fade 7-inch vinyl.

The new track is titled, “How I Met Your Mother”; yes just like the television show starring Neil Patrick Harris and Jason Segel that is about to wrap up in a few episodes.

The track can be heard below and don’t forget that Taking Back Sunday have just kicked off their co-headlining tour with The Used and supporting acts Tonight Alive and Sleepwave. Tour dates for that can be seen after the video.

Arctic Monkeys Release B-Side


A few weeks back, we got the Arctic Monkeys’ video for “Do I Wanna Know?” and up to then, speculation started to surround whether or not the band would be releasing a new album sometime soon.

Sure enough, the band announced that they would be releasing a brand new album titled AM on September 10 through Domino Records. Today, the band have released the B-side to “Do I Wanna Know?,”  “2013.” The song, will not appear on the new release which means that it’s time to take advantage and listen to the song on repeat.

Tell us what you think of the song? Should it have been included on AM?
