MySpace isn’t good for much these days, but I have been enjoying their MySpace Transmissions, whereby the coax good bands to play a short live session and do an interview. But unlike other sites that do something similar (and to be sure there are hundreds), MySpace makes the audio available for download at 320 kbps. That alone makes this series one of the better ones to follow.
Among the bands that have played for the social networking graveyard have been: Bon Iver, Vampire Weekend, Rogue Wave, Cold War Kids, The Eels, Nada Surf, NOFX, Alkaline Trio, Passion Pit and many others.
Brooklyn via Missouri six-piece White Rabbits, whose latest It’s Frightening continues to impress especially given the high expectations I had for it, were the latest band to drop by. If you have the chance to see them live ( Fall tour dates ) you really should — high energy booty shakin’ all the way.
Here they are talking about working with Britt Daniel (Spoon) on their most recent album.
