A Great Big Pile Of Leaves

A Great Big Pile of Leaves Share B-Side “Learning Curves”

The underrated indie rockers in A Great Big Pile of Leaves are about to be headlining a beast of a tour for September. Their label, Topshelf Records, has put the band together with label-mates Field Mouse, Prawn and Diamond Youth; one sick lineup.

Well, yesterday, the label shared a B-side from AGBPOL’s excellent (newest) album, You’re Always On My Mind, called “Learning Curves”. It’s a fun and energetic song that runs just shy of three minutes, containing loud crashes, gorgeous guitar riffs and the expected vocal accompaniment that this band is known for.

Check the track out below, and …

Katy Perry Shares “This Is How We Do” Remix Featuring Riff Raff

The Neon Icon has officially become besties with the girl behind everyone’s Teenage Dream.

Katy Perry is always rumored to be dating someone, regardless of whether or not the press has any proof of the alleged romance. In recent weeks, the person Perry has most often been connected to is Riff Raff, the outrageous rapper who is often known as the most viral man in hip-hop. The pair deny they’re anything more than best friends, but today they took a step towards being more than just friends by collaborating on the official remix of Perry’s infectious “This Is How …

Juicy J Releases “Low” Video Featuring Lil Bibby, Young Thug, and Nicki Minaj

Just a week or two after delivering the official audio, Juicy J has shared the official music video for “Low.”

You may have missed the premiere of “Low” when it ran on UTG, but it won’t be long before the first confirmed single off Juicy J’s next album is impacting radio around the globe. The song packs a killer beat that lends itself to dancing, not to mention remixes (which should begin hitting the net anytime now). The video features fly cars, hot ladies, and shots of Juicy J pimping his way through a parking lot. Nothing too …

‘Young Ones’ Trailer: Michael Shannon & Elle Fanning Explore Yet Another Dystopian Future

The future is, by all accounts told on the silver screen, a horrible place to live. There are no jobs, poverty is often rampant, and the idea of society as we know it today has long vanished. For whatever reason, people always believe those who exist in the future are doomed to explore vast wastelands that once supported thriving cities. I’m not against this approach by any means, but it’s certainly not the most original take on what is to come.

Young Ones, the second feature from Jake Paltrow, offers yet another take on a potential dystopian future. Water …

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For’ Is An Underwhelming Callback To Adolescence

Film: Sin City: A Dame To Kill For
Directed By: Robert Rodriguez, Frank Miller
Starring: Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin

After 9 years of waiting for another foray into bloody black and white cinematic madness, the sequel to Sin City has finally arrived. Was it really worth the wait, though? As a pre-teen back in 2005, this was the kind of pulp noir fiction that my puberty-stricken primal instinct fed off of. Now typing before you is a 21-year-old who hasn’t grown any wiser when it comes to violent entertainment like this.  Betwixt the beheadings, limb chopping, and nude …

KISS 2014 Des Moines Iowa Review

LIVE REVIEW: KISS and Def Leppard in Des Moines, Iowa (8/20/2014)

“You wanted the best, you got the best. The hottest band in the world…KISS!”

Forty years later and the hottest band in the world hasn’t lost its shine. KISS delivered a full-throttle destruction of Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines on August 20, winning the crowd over with a mixture of celebrated songs and on-stage antics. The band known for mixing simple and addictive rock ‘n’ roll with one of the most historical, groundbreaking live performances hasn’t lost a single platform-shoe’d step in its four decade tenure of melting faces — and that was blisteringly evident Wednesday night.

But let’s …

Puff Daddy And Guy Gerber Release ’11 11′ Album (For Free)

There was a rumor not too long ago that Puff Daddy and producer/DJ Guy Gerber were working on an album together. The story quickly spread around the net, but when no music surfaced in the immediate future people moved on. To be perfectly honest, we even thought the whole thing was a hoax, as our tiny critic minds could never imagine what would happen when those two creative minds got together.

Turns out, the album is very real. In fact, it’s complete and ready to be added to your music collection, for free, today.

Yesterday (August 21), Puff Daddy turned …

Oceano

Oceano Drop Off Tour With I Declare War

Oceano have been forced to drop off their current late summer tour with fellow metal outfit I Declare War. The band is citing ‘transportation issues’ as the cause and hope to be on the road again soon. A message released to fans over social media this week reads, “Due to transportation issues we are unable to play the remaining tour dates. We sincerely apologize but this is out of our control. We’ve had such a blast with I Declare War, The Last Ten Seconds of Life, Barrier and Invent, Animate and have some big news coming up.”

It’s hard …

Ty Dolla $ign Shares “Lord Knows” Featuring Dom Kennedy And Rick Ross

Ty Dolla $ign has watched his celebrity grow throughout 2014, and next week he hopes to take things to another level when his $ign Language mixtape hits streets. Today, we get our first taste of the record, and I think it’s safe to say Ty has another hit on his hands.

Bringing together Dom Kennedy and Maybach Music Group head honcho Rick Ross against a beat that isn’t afraid to use thunderclap samples, “Lord Knows” is the first confirmed $ign Language track to find its way online. It’s little more than a series of boastful verses and misogyny, but it …

Henry Rollins Writes Editorial Against Suicide, References Robin Williams’ Death

Henry Rollins sure knows how to stir up some controversy, doesn’t he?

Rollins has been around for quite some time. He also happens to be a very opinionated individual. While fans usually find themselves agreeing with him on most issues, it seems that his recent editorial with LA Weekly may turn some people off. He wrote a rather lengthy opinion piece about suicide, and he pulls no punches. Referring to Robin Williams’ untimely passing, as well as some people he knew personally, he states that he can’t understand why someone who has kids to think of would choose to end …
