No, y’know what? SUCK IT, Hot Lixx Guitar.

When I was a kid, Tyco came out with the Hot Lixx toy guitar. The ads were all some variation of some cool kid, with cool kid hair, blowing away all the other cool kids with their mad guitar skills, while bragging ‘never had a single lesson.’ It was an insult to everything I stood for as a ten-year-old guitar nerd who had even managed to touch an electric guitar TWICE by then.

Hear the new Bob Evans single, ‘Born Yesterday’

Dearly loved Australian singer songwriter, Bob Evans has today announced his new single Born Yesterday, a gorgeous, nostalgia-soaked rambler of a track, out today, Novermber 19.  Born Yesterday is also accompanied by a beautiful, glowing video clip which serves as an ode to touring during a year where it was impossible.  Bob Evans, the ARIA-winning alter ego of Jebediah frontman Kevin Mitchell, has graced the Australian music scene for more than two decades and has written some of the country’s most beloved songs and Born Yesterday will not disappoint his loyal audience. 

Listen to Wolfgang Van Halen’s debut single. Bring tissues.

“As my pop continued to struggle with various health issues, I was imagining what my life would be like without him and how terribly I’d miss him. While the song is incredibly personal, I think anyone can relate to the idea of having a profound loss in their life. I never intended ‘Distance’ to be the very first piece of music people would hear from me, but I also thought my father would be here to celebrate its release. This is for him. I love and miss you, Pop.” – WVH
