The Orwells are such a great find. You might have heard “Who Needs You” on an Apple commercial and wondered who played that catchy song. “The Righteous One” is another track, off of their second album, Disgraceland, that is completely addicting.
They have a nostalgic rock feel to them that bands like The Strokes have tried bringing back and a lead singer that channels Jim Morrison on stage. If you like what you hear, you can catch them at Coachella this year, which means catch them before they blow up.

Radical Publishing is happy to announce the launch of their most recent contest, “Where in the World is Radical?” The contest will run from February 11 to March 15, 2011.
The winner of the contest will be flown from wherever they live in the United States to Indio, California, where they will receive two tickets to the Coachella music festival (April 15 – 17, 2011) and a 3-night stay at a local hotel, all courtesy of Radical.
To enter, visit the contest page (http://on.fb.me/dLJ7Sd) and upload a photo of yourself holding a Radical book or the provided Radical printout (http://bit.ly/dMpDVy) in a location that shows where in the United States you live. Note that this does not necessarily mean you need to take a photo in front of a national landmark—submissions can be as simple as a photo taken next to a street sign. Think creatively, though— photos will be judged on the basis of originality.
Once you’ve got your photo, upload it to the contest page and ask your friends to vote— the more people you get involved, the better your chances at winning. Radical will select the winner from the three photos that receive the most votes, ultimately choosing a single winner based on the creativity of their submission.
