Stream: The Rocketboys – Build Anyway

Austin, TX based indie-rock group The Rocketboys have released their long-awaited sophomore full-length album, Build Anyway. The album is currently streaming at AOL Spinner and PasteMagazine.com and is available for purchase on iTunes.

Recorded in their home studio and mixed by CJ Eiriksson (U2, Live, Phish), Build Anyway chronicles the emotions that surface through the brokenness in abandonment to the search for peace and closure, both personally and musically.  Frontman Brandon Kinder conveys the feelings perfectly as he paints a haunting, yet heartfelt picture with his rich crooning vocals on the album’s ten beautifully cathartic tracks.

The Rocketboys will be touring throughout the summer in support of Build Anyway.

Ou Est Le Swimming Pool Suicide

Click to watch the video for "Dance the Way I Feel"

I am very saddened to hear of the death of Charles Haddon, the lead singer of UK synth pop band Ou Est Le Swimming Pool. This past Friday night he jumped from a telephone mast behind stage at the Belgian music festival, Pukkelpop. He was only 22 years old.

From Spinner UK:

Ou Est Le Swimming Pool had a promising career ahead of them after a successful debut in 2009. The band’s single ‘Dance the Way I Feel’ reached No. 10 on the UK singles chart. The band also supported fellow UK pop act La Roux on tour. A debut full-length, ‘Christ Died for Our Synths,’ was to be released this October, and the band had a headlining UK tour scheduled. It is not known yet whether the band will hold the album or release it as planned.

A statement on Ou Est Le Swimming Pool’s MySpace page reads, “We are all so deeply saddened to confirm that our friend Charlie Haddon passed away yesterday, Friday 20 August. The singer had just performed with his band, Ou Est Le Swimming Pool, at the Pukkelpop festival in Belgium. Charles Alexander Haddon R.I.P. Thanks for all your messages of support. x.”

During their show, Haddon had taken an unexpected stage-dive that turned out badly. A girl was hurt pretty severely, but was taken to the hospital and expected to recover. After the band’s performance, Haddon and his bandmates were in an argument about the incident, which came close to starting a riot.

Empire of the Sun & Jay-Z!?!

Empire of the Sun’s debut album Walking on a Dream (which I reviewed here) has done extremely well, especially in the UK. Now, Jay-Z has asked frontman Luke Steele to collaborate on his new album, The Blueprint 3.

From Spinner.com:

It’s pretty impressive for a band that has yet to play its first show. They’re finally going to add that to their resume as well, at the end of this month when Empire of the Sun performs a string of festival dates across Australia, beginning Sept. 26 in Brisbane.

“I’ve kind of designed the show like a movie,” Steele tells Spinner. “It’s like a 3-D movie. There’s narration and there’s lots of dance, and so it kind of takes you on a journey like the record does and goes to a lot of different places. It’s a cross between a movie and a live band show.”
