For all you mums and dads out there, Twitter is the latest social networking craze to take over the internetz. Users start an account, follow their friends [...]
The cool cats over at Way Cool Jnr. have compiled a list of the Top 25 Australian Music Blogs and just like Spinal Tap we here at Twelve Major Chords go all the way to 11. Using a combination of ones and zeros, stuff to do with Google Rankings and something about Technorati, Nick [...]
That crazy Canuck over at A Reminder is doing exactly what his blog suggests and reminding us that Fleet Foxes are supposed to be in the country for some New Years Eve party times as part of the Falls Festival. Thankfully for those of us who don’t fancy dirt, sleeping on the ground, porta-showers [...]

The set was recorded with the original Cardinals [...]
Electra, DJ for Chicago radio station Q 101 must be hanging her head in shame, after being on the receiving end of a phone call from a very pissed off Jack White. Jack personally called the station from Spain where The White Stripes are currently touring, after learning that Electra played their yet-to-be-released album, [...]

Faux Pas paints luscious soundscapes with a very mixed palette of noise, whereas Batman hangs out in a cave, wearing a [...]
