New Drake Track “How About Now” Hits The Net

Drizzy Drake is either trying a strange new form of viral promotion or he really needs to get a handle on who has control of his unreleased music because a new song hit the web without warning today and it’s quickly taking the net by storm.

“How About Now” found its way online shortly after noon on Sunday, October 19. The track was originally posted on Soundcloud by a 19-year-old fan from Georgia that has yet to reveal how they came to have the track in their possession. The song has since been removed from that page, but it lives …

Fury

‘Fury’ Runs Over ‘Gone Girl’ on the Path to the Top

Despite the fact that October tends to be relatively packed full of horror films, Brad Pitt’s return to the silver screen has been met with an enormous response. Thanks to the $23.5 million that it had made on its opening weekend, Fury has knocked Gone Girl from its chart-topping position. Sales aren’t the only thing going for the WWII action film; on top of that, Rotten Tomatoes currently reveals that Fury has an 80% aggregate rating out of over 140 reviews.

Meanwhile, The Book of Life which is Guillermo del Toro’s latest animated production has fared well. Studio estimates tell …

Structures Announce Hiatus, Final Tour Dates Confirmed

Earlier this year the Canadian metal outfit known as Structures released a killer full-length album, titled Life Through A Window. While from all outward appearances it seemed like the group was doing well for themselves, we now know that was not actually the case.

The band has announced that they will be going on an indefinite hiatus as of 2015. You can read what they had to say right below the jump.

Ghostface Killah and BADBADNOTGOOD Announce Album; Share New Track

So early this year, we heard a track called “Six Degrees” by a collaboration between Ghostface Killah of Wu-Tang Clan and the band BADBADNOTGOOD, which featured a verse from Danny Brown. It was nasty good, and now the collab has announced that they have worked out a whole album worth of material.

Entitled Sour Soul, and produced by Frank Dukes (50 Cent, Lloyd Banks), the group will release it early next year.

The mesh of funky rhythms and lines that flow perfectly with the verses of the Iron Man of rap make for a killer collaboration. The …

James Blake Shares Track “Building It Still” on BBC Radio 1

James Blake has been far from quiet about what’s going on with his new record. On BBC Radio 1, he has shared a handful of new tracks from it, including “200 Press.”

Last night, he shared another one with fans, called “Building It Still.” With every new track, it seems like Blake is moving further from a vocalist and more towards a producer, and I can’t say I hate it. He continues to impress and this song stands on that idea. This song reminisces of recent Burial tracks and has a tinge of melodies that could come from …

Transit Joyride

Transit Share “Too Little, Too Late”

If you’ve kept up with anything over the past few days, you’ve known about the ’12 Days of Transit’ which has them sharing the remainder of their new record, Joyride, up until the release date. And if you’re like us, you’re loving every single day of it.

Well, continuing with the chain, today Transit posted the track “Too Little, Too Late.” It’s a sure pop anthem that is arguably the best we’ve heard so far. It’s catchy, serious and necessary in all the right places. The infectiousness of this band is overwhelming and this track spills that all over …
