While we were in the whirlwind of SXSW in March in good ol' Austin Texas, we fell in love...with Tiny Moving Parts. They played our Charlies Says Fest and blew us away. Not only are they rippers, they also are the raddest dudes. Ever. So we are happy to present to you their new video for Always Focused! Feast your eyes and ears on this epic video and then head over to get their brand new album that is dropping TODAY! Check them out on tour and be sure to attend the parties we are throwing together for their record release on September 27th and 28th. Be there or be square!

Congratulations to Daniel Ricciardo. Of all the racing drivers in the world, yesterday he was awarded the coveted Lorenzo Bandini Trophy for the driver who has impressed with speed, on-track achievements, character and approach to the sport. Every F1 world champion for the last 15 years have won this award, many prior to winning the world championship.

Both last year and this year, our good bud Daniel Ricciardo walked into this race not expected to win. This year, he listened to Angels and Airwaves and won. Congratulations, mate, and epic win! Daniel's quote after the race, "I'm young, I'm still going to keep improving. I ain't getting slower." Look at this awesome dance Daniel does in hopes to get his race engineer to lighten up!

Taking Back Sunday packed out Fremont street in Las Vegas a few weeks ago at Zappos's Ride Shop event! We were happy to bring our long time friends and Idlehands with us on a road trip to Downtown Vegas. Nothing like neon lights, people singing along to every song, and of course, an epic and energetic performance by Taking Back Sunday.

Soda Pants has just premiered their debut single exclusively on AlternativeNation.net. "Amarillo," the tenth track off their upcoming self-titled full-length album, is a folk rock, catchy tune. Check it out below! Soda Pants is a group of young, talented folk-rock virtuosos influenced by classic rock legends such as Paul Simon, The Band, and Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young. The group formed at UCSD in March 2012 when musicians Erin Bower, Will Chapman, Mike Sierks, and Grady Kestler met and entered the Battle of the Bands.
The folk rock four-piece began touring across the west coast, opening for eclectic acts such as Matt & Kim, Capital Cities, Portugal the Man, Andrew McMahon, the Mowglis, Youngblood Hawke, Run River North, and many more. Soda Pants was later given the San Diego Music Award for Best New Artist in 2013, opened for Conan O’ Brien during a visit to UCSD, and received airplay on 102.1 KPRI, 94.9 FM, and 88.1 KPFZ. The group’s debut self-titled album will be released on May 9th, 2014. The LP was produced, recorded, and mixed by Jeff Berkley at Berkley Sound and mastered at Lurssen Mastering Studios by Gavin Lurssen and Reuben Cohen.
