Telegraf recently worked with Marc McClusky (Ludo, William Beckett) on their upcoming debut EP, Lines. We are premering a new song and video today with "Do You Wanna." The song sits somewhere between the solo work of William Beckett vocally (expectedly) and the instrumentation found in The 1975's songs, where the guitar really helps propel the chorus. The EP uses direct quotes from actual conversations, making it a very personal insight. If you're looking to learn more about the band, you can also watch a short introductory documentary in the replies.

Wave & Rome started out in Nashville as a collaboration between Sam Tinnesz and co-writer/co-producer Josh Farro (formerly of Paramore). The band's upcoming EP, Across the Map, will release on June 2nd, but we are streaming a new song called "Wandering Wolf" today. The song shouldn't be a far cry for fans of bands like Augustana or Cary Brothers, being a piano-driven pop-rock song. Producer Matt Bronleewe, who has worked with Hayley Williams, also helped produce, and Chad Howatt (Paper Route) did the mixing. Howatt's work here should definitley please fans of Paper Route, as well. Give it a listen in the replies. If you're liking it, head to iTunes tomorrow to grab the song and pre-order...

So it seems that Brandon Flowers of The Killers has been keeping a collection of his facial hair shavings since 2008. That's a little weird, right?
"I have a Ziploc bag full of hair", Flowers revealed to the newspaper's Radar magazine. "I'll grow five or six days growth, make sure that the sink is dry, use an electric razor, catch it in the sink, and then I'm able to just scoop it into the bag!"

The YouTuber, Austin Jones, that was asking young girls to send him twerking videos, was going to be on Warped Tour, and inspired a petition, has posted a message on Facebook saying he's going to be in therapy and taking some time away.
What was I thinking? That's the question I know most of you want to know and, quite frankly, I want to know too. I have decided to take this time to reflect and to discover how to grow from this and become a better person. I owe that to my family, my friends, my fans, but most importantly to me.

Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness have released a "Toy Instrument" version of their song "Cecilia and the Satellite." Stream that in the replies.
What do you do when you have a spare afternoon in Nashville? Find a studio, a camera, a box of toy instruments and see if you can't make something cool happen. I had no idea what I was getting into when i showed up for this experiment, but I'm so pleased with how it all turned out. That said you may be able to tell by my face (or many faces) throughout this video that there were moments I felt a little overwhelmed by the process of stitching all these elements together. Enjoy

Today we have a contest on this here website featuring the one and only Rozwell Kid. In case you haven't heard of them, Rozwell Kid is from West Virginia and released a cool record called Too Shabby last year. The band convinced Chums to create a limited run of eyeglass retainers (nerdy straps that nerds like me wear around their noggins to keep their glasses from sliding down their nose while they headbang), so we're giving away a pair of those along with a copy of Too Shabby on vinyl, a T-shirt and a pair of tickets to see Rozwell Kid rip a gig with Superheaven and Diamond Youth.

Per Billboard, BMG has purchased Rise Records for an undisclosed amount of money. The label will retain its ownership and still operate out of Portland, and be the beneficiaries of larger global distribution under BMG. This news comes on the heels of Fearless Records being acquired by Concord Bicycle Music.
Under the deal, Rise will continue to operate out of Portland with Ericson at the helm of the digital-savvy company, but now the label will have BMG's resources for pushing its artists beyond the U.S., where it currently generates the vast majority of its revenue.

"Rise Records is more than a record label," noted Laurent Hubert, president of creative & marketing at BMG Chrysalis...

Chris Carrabba wrote this year's American Idol coronation song.
Its just too good to be true, Carrabba tells Billboard. He found a way to make it instantly his own song. What more can you want as a songwriter? That is what you do. You write these songs with your heart invested in it and as an expression of who you are and hope to be. It just speaks volumes to his talent.
