Some items around the house have remained pretty much the same, serving us the same function over and over again. Take the humble rubber band, for instance. They have been around since the 1600s and were patented in England way back in 1845. And they have always been circular. But not anymore.
Thanks to Pop Chart Lab’s massive Charted Connections of Rock chart, which maps out the links between 727 artists — and over 500 bands — and denotes degrees of separation across musical genres and generations, we now suspect Eric Clapton is the Kevin Bacon of music.

Goldsmith are yet another one of the exciting bands that are coming out of the Newcastle, Australia, music scene. We sat down with them to talk relatives, basements, and Dire Straits.
New York has been pumping out some really interesting bands and artists of late: Vampire Weekend, Sleigh Bells and Azealia Banks, to name a few. So of course a new four piece from Brooklyn called People Get Ready has caught our attention. They are a combination of talents: founding member Steven Reker has toured as […]
Check out Erin Gallagher’s portrait of Alexis Krauss and Derek E. Miller of Sleigh Bells. Her voice is like crystal and his guitar shreds. Perfect combo!
