A former member of highly influential but vastly underrated Bay Area bands the Loved Ones, Mover, and Dave Gleason’s Wasted Days, Mike Therieau is an Oakland-based singer-songwriter who blasts passion through his own bluesy, old-school country flavored songs like "Fly Away." His raw voice evokes the Small Faces’ Steve Marriott (with the haircut to match), but it’s his bleak, contemplative mood that carries the music.—Aidin Vaziri

Members of Sex Pistols and Def Leppard to Release Man Raze Debut

Now that Velvet Revolver's future is uncertain, are Man Raze poised to become the newest rock supergroup? Who knows? Sounds pretty good to us though. Blabbermouth.net is reporting that Phil Collen of Def Leppard, Simon Laffy of Girl, and Paul Cook of the Sex Pistols have paired to form Man Raze, which will release their debut album Surreal on June 3 in the States. "The fun part about Man Raze is that musically we can go off in any direction from rock to alternative," frontman Collen has said. "We go from really hard rock, with obviously big guitars, to dub. I was always into the alternative stuff, a very big fan of the Police. And this is edgy—a lot more aggressive than Def Leppard."

Beginning today Coldplay are giving fans a one-week-only chance to download the first track, "Violet Hill," from their forthcoming album Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends. The marketing push appears to be an effective one, as Billboard is reporting that the Coldplay site performed sluggishly when a reporter tried to acquire the download today. When obtaining the free download, Gibson experienced no such delay. Fans wishing to get the free download must visit Coldplay's website, click on "Song," and enter an email address and postal code. The free download is then sent to the email address in a zip file and will expire within six hours of first opening it. The album will be available in full on June 12 and is the first LP for the band since 2005's X&Y, which proved to be the best selling album of that year. Viva La Vida has been described as a departure from Coldplay's previous albums.

Sexpot/actress Scarlett Johansson has endured a groundswell of skepticism these many months leading up to the May 20 release of her debut album of Tom Waits covers, Anywhere I Lay My Head. Though some signs have pointed oddly in her favor—her collaborations with David Bowie and TV on the Radio's Dave Sitek, for instance—the jury has remained out on Johansson's musical abilities. Now, Rhino Records and Atco Entertainment have released six of Johansson's tracks for preview.

Free MP3 of the Day: Neko Case "Star Witness"

Click here for a free download of Neko Case's "Star Witness." Neko Case has proven that gorgeous, mid-tempo songs don’t always have to be about the acquiring and relinquishing of lovers, as is the case with most of her female contemporaries. Pairing keening gospel harmonies with a perverse picture of country life, Case’s Fox Confessor Brings the Flood was easily one of 2006’s finest releases. "Star Witness" is a standout track from that album. Though Case’s voice has distinguished both her solo career and her work with the New Pornographers, she’s also well-known for her atypical choice of guitar—a vintage, P-90-equipped Gibson SG tenor guitar, which she favors because of her “tiny hands.”
