Hip-hop artist Thi’sl (how in the world do you pronounce that?) has a new video for his song “Windows Down”. Watch below:

Tooth & Nail’s latest signing, Breaking The Silence, have changed their name to The Letter Black, along with adding a new drummer and second guitarist. Member changes and the release hasn’t even come out yet….looking good.

White Collar Sideshow recently posted a massive update on their recent and future travels. Read White Collar Sideshow update.

Two items from the mewithoutYou camp. The first is an interview with Aaron (lead vocalist) concerning the lyrical content of their latest record. Read mewithoutYou interview.
The second was an announcement for a very unique tour:
(taken from their myspace page)
Fans of mewithoutYou will get to see another side of the Philly experimental band this fall when the Weiss Family hits the road this August for a tour with Damien Jurado and Psalters. This will be an intimate version of the band for fans and an alternate take on their classic songs that you won’t want to miss!
Joining brothers Aaron on acoustic guitar and Mike Weiss on electric guitar will be Mike’s wife Sarah on keyboards, along with Matt Chapin on trumpet. Look for a few surprises, friends and additional instrumentalists as well. This is most definitely not an “unplugged” outing; however, the percussion section will be far from the traditional “rock drums” mewithoutYou fans are used to. It is a chance to hear mewithoutYouWeiss Family puts a new twist on their impressive body of work. They’ll also be mixing it up with an eclectic selection of covers, but you’ll have to check out one of these shows to find out what they’ll be!
Joining on this tour of family and friends with be songwriter Damien Jurado and gypsy tribal activist band Psalters.
