Iggy Azalea Delivers Another Potential Hit With “Beg For It”

Iggy Azalea has her detractors, but the majority of music fans seem to believe the young emcee is fancy enough to have earned their love. This week, Iggy delivered yet again when she shared a new song called “Beg For It,” and if we had to guess we’d say it might be your new favorite song.

Featuring the kind of minimalist production that has accompanied all of her biggest hits, “Beg For It” finds Iggy wants again flexing her ego and wordplay against thick bass. She knows she is a powerful young woman and she’s not going to let anyone tell her otherwise. In fact, she’s going to explain why she’s so badass over and over again in songs she sends to radio until we all agree she is, in fact, something special. You’re going to want her so bad in the end you will beg for it. Read more »

Day 25: Hausu (1977)

To be honest there is no correct place to begin any kind of conscious thought on the 1977 Japanese film, Hausu, but let’s go for it anyway. Read more »

Cobra Starship Release “Never Been In Love” Music Video

Following a single premiere late last month, Cobra Starship have released the official video for their Icona Pop assisted single, “Never Been In Love.”

I don’t everything that transpired between the last time Cobra Starship released an album and now, but Gabe Saporta has returned to the spotlight with a pop friendly change of pace that is incredibly infectious. “Never Been In Love” is unlike most of Cobra Starship’s previous material, but the inherent sense of fun that has always driven the group’s sound remains in tact. The video is largely performance based, with brief glimpses of Saporta and the girls of Icona Pop both in the studio and exploring a European city. Check it out: Read more »

‘Batman v Superman’ Teaser To Run In Front Of ‘The Hobbit’

They might not admit it to the public, but it’s pretty clear to anyone paying attention that DC Comics is desperately trying to catch up to, if not top, Marvel‘s cinematic universe. Every time one company announces something big, the other one follows, and every time it’s the fans who win.

We have just under two years to wait until Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice hits theaters, but according to a new story on Forbes we might get a glimpse of the superhero epic as soon as December 2014. Writer Mark Hughes claims to have heard from a good source that a teaser for the film, which will likely be similar to the footage shown at Comic-Con earlier this year, will run in front of The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies. Warner Bros has not confirmed this report, but we like to think Forbes know what they’re talking about. Read more »

Rick Ross

Rick Ross Streams “Don’t Tell ‘Em” Remix

We are still a month away from the November 24 release of Hood Billionaire, but that’s not stopping Rick Ross from sharing new music with fans.

Jeremih’s “Don’t Tell ‘Em” has been an undeniable urban radio sensation for a minute now, and late last night (October 24) Ross decided to add his twist to the chart-topping track. The song, which can be streamed below, now begins with a verse from Ross that touches on women, wealth, and the life of excess that the boss lives every single day. Check it out: Read more »

Man Overboard

Man Overboard Stream ‘Passing Ends’ EP

We’ve already had the chance to listen to “Stood Up” and “For Vince,” but thanks to Billboard, we can now listen to Man Overboard‘s Passing Ends EP in full.

It may have only been about a year and a half since the NJ group released their Heart Attack LP, but the maturity displayed on this new EP makes it seem like decades. With a production team of vocalist/bass player Nik Bruzzese on production duties and Will Yip behind the mixing, this EP is sure to whet the appetites of fans before Man O releases their fourth studio album in 2015 through Rise Records.

Passing Ends can still be pre-ordered through Lost Tape Collective prior to its release this upcoming Tuesday (10/28). Read more »

One-Direction-Steal-My-Girl

One Direction Recruit Danny Devito For “Steal My Girl” Video

One Direction may seem like any other boy band that has ever existed to those who do not invest much time in such things, but truth be told they are actually quite unique. For starters, they don’t dance in unison. They also don’t take themselves all that serious, which is proven once and for all in their new video for “Steal My Girl.”

Set in a desert far from any major city, the official video for “Steal My Girl” opens with the members of One Direction asking one another where their director has gone. Moments later, the man in question arrives (Danny Devito), and he proceeds to tell the group that their new clip will showcase “a higher form of expression.” This includes, but is not limited to, sumo wrestlers, monkeys, and ribbon dancers. You can view the video below: Read more »

Brent Walsh (I The Mighty) Streams “Default World”

Guitarist and vocalist Brent Walsh of I The Mighty will be releasing his solo debut through Equal Vision Records on November 10. The eclectic mix of tracks that make up the album, 7, are reflective of different points in Walsh’s life over the past 7 years working with I The Mighty.

Today, Walsh released the second song from 7, a folk-acoustic jam called “Default World.” If you’re familiar with Walsh’s acoustic tracks with I The Mighty you’ll be right at home with this new cut.

…And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead Release Music Video For “The Ghost Within”

…And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead have released a new video for their track “The Ghost Within” over at The Line Of Best Fit. The song comes from their most recent album, IX.

This is one of the softer …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead songs that I’ve heard. The feature-style video is a perfect companion piece, as expected from a band that’s been known for their public perception as much as their music.

Watch “The Ghost Within” below and let us know what you think. Read more »

Better Off

Better Off Release “I Was Better 10 Years Ago” From ‘Meth Head’

Better Off recently announced their signing to Equal Vision Records and confirmed the release of a seven-inch entitled Meth Head. We heard the title track a while back, and you can now stream the b-side, “I Was Better 10 Years Ago,” at AltPress.

This band is something special, and the new track solidifies that. I think I prefer this song to “Meth Head,” although I’m not sure how I feel about them in comparison to last year’s full-length, (I Think) I’m Leaving. The new seven-inch is a bit of a different direction. Good, but different.

Stream “I Was Better 10 Years Ago” below or over at AltPress. Read more »

Vacationer Release Music Video For “Go Anywhere”

As fall weather starts to take over, you might have forgotten that Vacationer put out a pretty great album earlier this year. Revisit the summer vibes of Relief with the new music video for “Go Anywhere.”

I don’t think Kenny Vasoli could look more mellowed out than he does here. If you’re having a stressful day, this might be just what you need to regroup and wind down. Take a break, make yourself a piña colada, and enjoy “Go Anywhere.”

You can watch the video below. Read more »
