Nick Santino To Release New EP, ‘Savannah,’ In December

Not too long after former A Rocket To The Moon frontman, Nick Santino, released two EPs and his debut full-length as a solo artist, the Boston singer-songwriter is scheduled to put out another EP this year. Savannah is slated for a December 19 release under 81twentythree.

The forthcoming effort, following his stellar, country-infused May 2014 record, Big Skies, is reportedly self-written and self-produced by Santino in his own attic. On the announcement he made earlier today, Santino writes, “Really excited to officially announce my upcoming new EP – Savannah. I wrote and recorded these new songs up in my attic on my own and I’m really proud of the way they turned out.”

You can pre-order the upcoming EP here. Savannah is also available for pre-order via iTunes here. Read more »

Frank Ocean Shares New Song “Memrise”

Frank Ocean is finally back. After the success of his debut studio album, Channel Orange, in 2012, the Odd Future crooner has been back in his studio working on his follow-up full-length. The last material we heard from him was back in March of this year when he teamed up with Diplo and members of The Clash for free mp3 “Hero.” Today, he returns with a short new song that satisfies our sweet tooth until a new LP is announced.

The song, titled “Memrise,” sees Frank Ocean asking a lover to come over, dazzling his tale with all sorts of complimentary embellishments. After posting it to his Tumblr today, it’s begun to quickly spread. It’s got the soft funk side of Thundercat or Toro Y Moi, taking a more subtle approach to the R&B genre than Channel Orange‘s bright beats or “Novacane,” all under two minutes. There’s no word yet on whether or not “Memrise” is from his forthcoming LP.

Check out the song and the lyrics below: Read more »

Abigail Breslin Shares Epic Breakup Anthem “You Suck”

Remember that adorable girl from Little Miss Sunshine? She’s matured into a young woman and recently had her heart broken by some guy in a band (rumored to be Michael Clifford from 5 Seconds Of Summer). Her response? Write a song, of course.

Abigail Breslin partnered with the fine folks at Teen Vogue recently to share the music video for the actresses’ latest single, “You Suck.” The track is a midtempo anthem for every girl who has ever fallen in love with someone in a band and lived to regret it. The video is basically Breslin performing in and around an inner-city apartment, with several appearances from people we can only assume are her close friends. You can view the visuals below: Read more »

From Autumn To Ashes End Their Six-Year Hiatus, Playing First Show in 2015

After taking a previously indefinite break from their career, the Long Island post-hardcore outfit known as From Autumn To Ashes have finally announced their comeback. This reunion will be solidified by their newly-announced appearance at the Amnesia Rockfest with Swedish outfit Refused (among others to be announced), in Montebello, Canada which will run from June 18 to June 21 in 2015.

FATA first hinted at their reunion in October when the band ambiguously tweeted a photo of the cover art for their debut record, Too Bad You’re Beautiful, from 2001. The band also made a Facebook page on November 11, where they made the announcement regarding their first show since 2008. In addition to playing Amnesia Rockfest, the five-piece has also announced that they “will play some more shows as well.”

The band also recently tweeted lyrics from an Abandon Your Friends track, “Kansas City 90210,” which said, “If I wanted to make a comeback would kids receive me?”

With open arms, boys. Open arms.

Own A Piece Of ‘The Babadook’ (If You Dare)

Have you seen The Babadook yet? I assume you have if you’re reading this post, but if not – do whatever you can to welcome its terror into your life as soon as humanly possible. Written and directed by Jennifer Kent, The Babaook may be the best horror film of 2014, and with a little help from loyal genre fans those who enjoy the flick can now own a cool piece of memorabilia.

Without going too into detail about the scares that await in The Babadook, everything essentially begins with a mysterious pop-up book that arrives on the doorstep of an unsuspecting widow on an otherwise normal day. That book contains the story of Mr. Babadook, and now the creators of the film have launched a crowdfunding effort to bring that book into the home of every horrorhound with a penchant for coffee table collectibles. The Bababook book cost $60 and is currently available for pre-order here. The only catch is that the sales must surpass 2,000 units before the book will be made. At the time of this post 1,091 copies had been ordered.

Here’s a quick look at what is inside the book: Read more »

Chance The Rapper and The Social Experiment Give First Glimpse of ‘Surf’

Looks like we’re getting our first glimpse at the previously announced upcoming album from Chance The Rapper and his band The Social Experiment.

For those who don’t know, The Social Experiment is actually a band which includes Chance, and their upcoming album, Surf, is not going to directly bear Chance’s name. In fact, the lead single from Surf is listed as “Donnie Trumpet And The Social Experiment.” Donnie, like Chance, is simply a member of the band.

Regardless, the track is a slick one and features some classic Chance The Rapper sounds both instrumentally and in Bennett’s vocal contributions. You can stream “Sunday Candy” below the jump: Read more »
