London Grammar

London Grammar Reveal Visuals For “Sights”

London Grammar are quickly making a name for themselves in the music world. Their debut full-length album was released less than a year ago (seven months, to be exact), but that has been enough to garner the trio over 500,000 fans on Facebook in such a short period of time. We’ve already seen a number of singles, remixes and videos come from the group, and now they’ve revealed yet another music video. The new video is for “Sights,” and you can watch it below the break.

“Sights” is a slow, heartfelt song, and the video fits it perfectly. The video is full of bright lights, panning cameras and a handful of violinists. Read more »

Stream Flume’s Expansive Remix of Lorde’s “Tennis Court”

Lorde certainly needs no introduction at this point. She was one of the most talked about artists of 2013 with her debut LP, Pure Heroine, which raked in an impressive amount of award nominations and wins. One of Lorde’s popular singles from last year, “Tennis Court,” has already received a number of reworks since its initial release but the most recent, and probably most noteworthy, is a departure and a half from the original.

Australian producer, Flume, doubled the single’s runtime with all sorts of new (massive) electronic elements leaving Lorde’s lush vocal arrangements as the only truly recognizable aspect. Whereas some remixes hardly stray from the source material, Flume gave the Pure Heroine opener an entirely fresh makeover that will be sure to have fans of Lorde and EDM alike shaking their asses.

Skizzy Mars 2014

MUSIC VIDEO: Skizzy Mars – “Make Sense”

Earlier in the week, rising star Skizzy Mars premiered a new music video for his track “Make Sense,” taken from his second full length album, Pace. Spanning just over four minutes, the clip follows Skizzy around his hometown of Manhattan as he collects an assortment of strange goods and takes part in the most questionable lab experiment ever. Find out what the up-and-comer is cooking by following the jump below.

Pace was released this past March, and very quickly became one of my favorite releases of 2014. If you like “Make Sense,” I highly suggest you download the entire album, for free, here.

Machine Gun Kelly Releases “Sail” Video

Cleveland native Machine Gun Kelly has followed the surprise release of “Sail” by dropping the song’s official music video.

Showcasing his love of the ridiculous, Machine Gun Kelly uses the video for “Sail” to let us in on the beautiful ladies and wild times he experiences on a regular basis. The video follows MGK as he strolls through a crazy neighborhood ripe with parties, hotties, pools with boats, and leather-clad women in devil costumes. Madness is happening in every inch of most frames and Kels remains cool, delivering line after line with kind of smug look you picture when you hear him put his ego on tape. You can view the clip below. Read more »

Iggy Azalea by Robert Wunsch

Iggy Azalea Would Appreciate It If You Resisted The Urge To Sexually Assault Her

“…I still have to have barriers even if it’s like 200 people because people try to finger me.”

Australian rapper Iggy Azalea released her new album yesterday, and during her morning press blitz she stopped by Hot97 studios in New York City for a quick promotional chat. It was the kind of typical radio PR stunt setup you would expect from an artist with major label backing, but things quickly became unique when Iggy dropped a bomb regarding the way certain fans treat her at shows.

“I had to stop [crowdsurfing]…” Azalea said. “I’m only doing like 2000-seaters, but I still have to have barriers even if it’s like 200 people because people try to finger me.” She later added that she has begun wearing tights and two pairs of underwear on stage for protection, which seems to be doing the trick – for now.

As revealing as all of this is, the most interesting tidbit might be that Azalea believes female fans are more often the culprits behind the sexual assault. “Girls will try to do it more than guys ’cause girls think it’s cool, like, ’We both got vaginas, it’s fine.’ Doesn’t make it OK.”

I could not have said it better myself. Read more »
