To celebrate its 60th Anniversary, Fender have released a whole slew of special designs and media content including some videos focusing on one of the guitar's most individual and influential players: Kevin Shields of My Bloody Valentine.

Critter & Guitari Organelle: Top Ten User Patches

We really like the Organelle from Critter & Guitari. It's endlessly expandable, super compact, really intuitive and will have you creating new ideas within seconds of playing it. It's also created a great sense of community around editing and designing new patches using the music programming environment 'Pure Data'. Users can share their patches with other Organelle users via Patch Storage, which means there's an enormous library of sounds available outside of those that come stock with the unit. To save you the time of scrolling through, we've picked ten of our favourites.

Among the Wildflowers: Remembering Tom Petty and 20 of his Greatest Songs

Like so many others, I was really saddened to hear of the passing of Tom Petty a few days ago. He was a masterful songwriter with too many classics to count and the world is a much better place for having heard them. His influence is surely eternal but it doesn't discount the fact that he will be sorely missed. Here's a 20 song playlist of some of his best.

Q&A: Lee McAlilly from Original Fuzz

Q&A: Lee McAlilly from Original Fuzz

Q&A: Lee McAlilly from Original Fuzz

Original Fuzz began when Lee McAlilly and Zach Lever met in college and started playing in bands together. Zach would carry his pedals around in a pharmaceutical ad covered gym bag and the two of them had an idea to upgrade this bag into something more practical for musicians. Since the initial bag idea the company has grown to build a wide range of camera and guitar straps from unique textiles from around the world. We recently had a chat with Lee about what goes on behind the scenes at Original Fuzz, what it's like working and living in Nashville and a heap more.
