Sweden's supreme masters of epic riff rock, baffling psychobable, and expertly executed Rock Moves, The Soundtrack of Our Lives are heading back to the United States in February -- including a stop at The Filmore at Irving Plaza on 2/16. Tickets are on sale. On February 27th they have a San Francisco show that is part of the 2010 Noise Pop Festival...

Event Producers, Noise Pop Industries, have announced the dates of the West Coast's premiere celebration of independent music, film and art - Noise Pop 2010. The 18th annual Noise Pop Festival will take place February 23rd through March 1, 2009 at venues throughout San Francisco, CA.

Early artist confirmations include Magnetic Fields, Mark Kozelek, Rogue Wave, Atlas Sound, The Soundtrack of Our Lives, Four Tet, John Vanderslice, We Were Promised Jetpacks, Wallpaper, Zee Avi, The Limousines & Foreign Born. More shows will be announced in the coming weeks along with films, art shows, and more.

TSOOL's most recent album, the double CD Communion, came out way back in January and has held up extremely well over the last 12 months. It's well worth seeking out if you haven't yet. And the band remain a live force to be reckoned with -- their show at Music Hall of Williamsburg last March was one of my favorites of 2009.
