On behalf of the Hard Candy team (including our readers – you are the most important part!) I wish you all a Happy New Year. Go get ‘em 2010! – Matt
Late to the game again! The Ropes new EP, titled Love Is A Chain Store landed a few weeks ago and it’s a must download! The best part about this band is that all of their music is available for free, yep that’s right, free…on their website.
The cover art for this release looks like one of those Norman Rockwell paintings I used to see in the waiting room of my doctors office. I could easily close my eyes and hear Liz Phair and Shirley Manson somewhere in the restless beauty of Sharon Shy’s voice. – Matt
Back in November we went to see Dragonette at Santos Party House and got the chance to speak with Martina before the show. You may remember I spoke to her over the phone before the album release, but of course we had plenty more we wanted to ask her about the incredible album Fixin To Thrill (one of my personal favorites of the year,) the live show and many more random topics, like what Martina grew up watching on TV! Check out the interview and if you missed our concert review you can check that here! – Camille
