The Story So Far 2012

The Story So Far To Release Acoustic EP June 17

The Story So Far may have made their name playing loud, energetic pop punk, but songs like “Clairvoyant,” released last year on a split EP with fellow Californians Stick To Your Guns, have proven the band’s ability to shine even when the volume is turned down. They will continue to explore that direction on Songs Of The Story So Far, an acoustic EP due out June 17.

The EP will feature acoustic renditions of three tracks from their 2013 full-length, What You Don’t See, along with a brand new song called “Navy Blue” and a cover of Bob …

REVIEW: Trophy Scars – ‘Holy Vacants’

Artist: Trophy Scars
Album: Holy Vacants
Genre: Rock, Blues, Post-Hardcore
Label: Monotreme Records

Ambitious, high-concept records are nothing new in progressive post-hardcore. La Dispute and A Lot Like Birds have built careers on albums with deep, involved storylines, and Boys Night Out’s 2005 magnum opus, Trainwreck, is one of the genre’s crowning achievements, but the premise of Holy Vacants, the fourth full-length from Morristown, New Jersey natives Trophy Scars, makes its predecessors look like child’s play. Set in a world where angels walk the earth and hold the fountain of youth in their blood, Holy Vacants combines …

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 …

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 …


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 …

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 …
