Rolling Stone (still) hearts Ohio

Share on Nextdoor
In the wake of the Black Keys new album, Attack and Release, the Akron music scene hasn't received this much national play since Devo had a top-ten single. The new issue of Rolling Stone (#1053, May 29 2008, Eagles on cover) continues the magazine's serial-gushing about the band. Varsity writer Austin Scaggs declares the disc his favorite album of the year on page 29, and gives national readers a dose of the news Scene readers get every week: Namely, that the Keys spread their love around to local acts like Houseguest and Jessica Lea Mayfield. Two Northeast Ohio alums also get big ups in the mag: The Eagles feature includes Joe Walsh (page 56), and the new Nine Inch Nails album, The Slip, receives a four (out of a possible five) star review in the leadoff slot. -- D.X.
