Alive In Standby

ALBUM STREAM: Alive In Standby – ‘Never Ending’

Even though Alive In Standby have been together for over four years, they are just now getting around to releasing their debut full-length album. With that being the case, they still earned themselves a dedicated fanbase with the stellar singles (and EP) they’ve dropped over the years.

After four years of hard work and dedication, the band will be releasing Never Ending this coming Tuesday, July 29. As a treat for fans, they have put the album up on YouTube to be streamed a little early. Give it a listen below the jump.

I’ve listened to the entire album already, …

In about a week and a half from now, Capture The Crown‘s sophomore studio album will officially hit stores everywhere.

Nick Jonas

Nick Jonas Kicks Off Solo Career By Premiering “Chains”

There aren’t too many musicians who start off in an ultra-famous gimmicky band then successfully transition to a solo career. Justin Timberlake is a prime example of a musician who was able to shake off his past and move forward to be a relevant pop star. The latest artist who hopes to make a similar transformation is the youngest Jonas brother, Nick Jonas. The brotherly band officially broke up last year, and he has taken the opportunity to sign to a label as a solo artist as well as rebrand himself. He plans on releasing his debut solo album …

How to Dress Well

How To Dress Well Shares “Let U Know” and Adds Tour Dates

After the release of the fantastic What Is This Heart?, How To Dress Well is streaming one more beautiful track that wasn’t on the proper release, but was recorded during and was a track that’s necessary for everyone to hear, called “Let U Know.”

In the press release, he mentions the origin of his album title and how this song is apparently a “partial cover of a song by [Tom] Krell’s friend oFF Love.” “In singing ‘Let U Know,’ I discovered the title of my album and a lot of its meaning — I needed this song to be …

MUSIC VIDEO: Maybeshewill – “In Amber”

We last heard from UK post-rock outfit Maybeshewill in 2011 when they debuted a quintessential record in the form of I Was Here For A Moment, Then I Was Gone. After three years of patiently waiting for even a glimpse of new material to follow up the monumental release, the band have finally unveiled “In Amber,” the first cut from their forthcoming full-length, Fair Youth. After listening through the track multiple times, it quickly becomes apparent it was more than well worth the wait as it just might be the most mature piece of music Maybeshewill have written to …

rustie

LISTEN: Rustie – “Attak” (Feat. Danny Brown)

Rustie is arguably one of the music scene’s most exciting producers in his own right, but when combining his instrumental prowess with the unmistakable flow of a rapper such as Danny Brown (as seen on last year’s “Dope Song”), some of the best music one will hear during the weeks and months surrounding their collaborations’ release comes to fruition. Fortunately for us, the two artists have linked up once more, this time for a brand track called “Attak.” Coming from Rustie’s forthcoming LP, Green Language, the single finds him and Brown putting on an absolute clinic for how to …

He Is Legend

He Is Legend Stream “Smoker Scoff”

It’s almost as if He Is Legend are trying to challenge their fans’ expectations with every new track they’ve put out in preparation for the release of their forthcoming effort, Heavy Fruit. A stream of their latest track, “Smoker Scoff” was released earlier today at Metal Injection and can be heard either there or following the jump.

I will hand it to them, they might be leaning towards radio alt-rock with their latest material, but they’re doing it really well. Clearly, frontman Schuylar Croom can truly attempt to write music for whichever genre he wants, because he most definitely has …

the otter years

REVIEW: The Otter Years – ‘Singles Collection’

Artist: The Otter Years
Album: Singles Collection
Genre: IDM
Label: Little League Records

When listening to The Otter Years‘ work for the first time, one would not be foolish to suspect the musician behind it has focused their career efforts on experimenting with all facets of electronic music. Alas, they would be wrong, as The Otter Years is none other than the brainchild of TTNG’s percussionist Chris Collis, a man known for existing as the backbone of mind-bending math rock rather than utterly relaxing dance music. Allowing listeners to fully wrap their mind around the concept of Collis’ 180 …
