With so many Christmas albums out there to choose from this year, which one has been your favorite so far? I personally have really enjoyed Solid State Records‘ compilation, Midnight Clear, which was released at the end of November. Read more »

Andy Shauf

Andy Shauf Streams “Hometown Hero” From Upcoming LP

I found Andy Shauf way too late. It was the drone, somber, and warm, “I’m Not Falling Asleep” that showed me how much musical reward I had missed from this fantastic Canadian artist. Adding to his already great impression on me, Andy Shauf has released another great new track from his upcoming LP, The Bearer Of Bad News.

“Hometown Hero” takes the slow and brooding challenge of “I’m Not Falling Asleep” and gives it a welcomed jolt of sway. Much brighter than the previously released track, “Hometown Hero” opens up Shauf’s sonic roster, and welcomes in new listeners. With The Bearer Of Bad News dropping Feb. 3, 2015 via Tender Loving Empire/Party Damage Records, let “I’m Not Falling Asleep” and “Hometown Hero” tide you over until then.

Be sure to follow us after the jump to enjoy “Hometown Hero,” and be sure to check if Shauf is coming near you here. Read more »

‘Hobbit’ Finale Defeats Competition

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies has officially arrived, and it’s left quite the impact on this week’s charts. With an estimated weekend total that pushes far past $55 million, the finale to the highly revered Hobbit trilogy has now made over $90 million dollars in the past five days.

Though their numbers aren’t nearly as high, the total draw of this weekend’s other premieres are nothing to sneeze at either. Featuring one of the last appearances of the late Robin Williams, Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb made landfall with $17.3 million, earning itself the title of the second highest grossing film in the country. The 2014 remake of Annie follows, with $16.3 million.

Curious about our thoughts on some of these new releases? Our reviews of Annie and The Hobbit can be found here and here, respectively. Be sure to follow the jump to see our top ten list of the current highest grossing films of the weekend. Read more »

Only a couple of days have passed since Tyler Carter revealed the lead single off his solo album, Leave Your Love, and he’s already streaming the next song. His newest track is “Tears On The Runway, Pt. 1,” featuring Nylo. You can stream it below.

Franco

Watch Jonah Hill Interview James Franco In The Trailer For ‘True Story’

Bummed out about James Franco and Seth Rogen’s The Interview being shelved by Sony? So are we. Lucky for Franco fans though, they will get to see him in the upcoming film based off the memoir of New York Times journalist, Michael Hinkel.

In 2001 an Oregonian man named Christian Longo was wanted by the police when the bodies of his three children and wife were found. Turns out their suspicions were spot on, and he was subsequently found guilty of their murders. While he was on the run though, he stole the identity of Michael Finkel, a New York Times journalist. Finkel met Longo in person, and eventually wrote a memoir on his experience.

In the upcoming film based off that memoir, titled True Story, Michael Finkel is played by Jonah Hill, and Michael Longo is played by James Franco. The movie follows Finkel as he tries to find out more about Longo’s story. You can watch a new trailer for the movie below. It’s scheduled to hit theaters April 10, 2015. Read more »

Miguel Just Dropped Three New Tracks, Stream Them Now

Grammy Award-winning artist, Miguel, just took his fans by surprise and put out three new tracks via SoundCloud. We haven’t seen anything at all from the R&B star since his incredible release of Kaleidoscope Dream in 2012, which brought tracks like “Adorn” and “Do You…”

From track one, “nwa,” to the closer, “Coffee,” which ends very abruptly, this untitled collection of songs was something you didn’t know you needed, and it’ll make you want more. The three new tracks are guaranteed to be heard blasting in everyone’s cars pretty soon. Let’s hope that this finally leads to a new record. Everyone’s “Anticipated Music For 2015″ list just got a little bit longer.

Check out Miguel’s surprise new tracks below. Read more »
