Stars No One Is Lost Single

Stream Stars’ New Dance Single ‘No One Is Lost’

Canadian indie rock group Stars will put out their newest album, No One Is Lost, on October 14 via ATO Records. Today the band have shared the title track off that album to stream.

The single follows in line with what we previously knew, namely that the synthpop group recorded the album in a studio one floor above a discotheque. “No One Is Lost” is much more chipper and celebratory than previous single “From The Night.” We’re betting it’s thanks to that catchy chorus.

The first trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson’s adaptation of Thomas Pynchon’s Inherent Vice has found its way online ahead of the film’s winter release.

Opening with a bit of narration from Joanna Newsom that helps set up the plot of the film, as well as the tone of the story, the first trailer for Inherent Vice in briefly enticing before becoming borderline crazy. Once the basic premise has been revealed, viewers are given dozens of brief glimpses at the film, including shots of the A-list cast that helps bring it to life. You will probably walk away a little confused, but you will also feel entirely entertained. Check it out: Read more »

Caribou Our Love

Stream Caribou’s New Album ‘Our Love’ In Full

Canadian musician and producer Caribou, aka Dan Snaith, will release Our Love on October 7 via City Slang. It’s his sixth album to date and first full-length since 2010′s excellent Swim. So far we’ve heard the immersive “Can’t Do Without You” and title track, but now it’s time to hear the rest. Our Love is streaming in full over at iTunes Radio.

The 10-track effort is a soulful, organic, heartfelt release that features collaborations with Owen Pallett and Jessy Lanza. Snaith told Rolling Stone that he wanted to make something for everyone, not just electronic fans, to listen to. “That’s such a shift for me,” he says in the interview. “There’s more of me in the music than there ever has been, for sure. It used to be that I closed the doors, and the only thing that ended up in the music was whatever was spontaneously generated there and then. Now it’s much more typical that I’ll get to work for a couple hours on something, then I’ll take my daughter to a museum with some friends of ours. Everything is happening all at the same time and bottled up together. And I think that’s good.” Read more »

Mastodon Bring in Twerking Dancers for “The Motherload” Video

If you thought Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” video had an overload of butt shaking, think again. Metal gurus Mastodon have just shared a new video for “The Motherload” from Once More ‘Round The Sun and it’s giving Minaj’s video a run for its money.

The video sees men in cloaks and women in minimal clothing taking over the floor to see who has the best dance moves. We’re all for friendly competition, but seeing the band perform next to close-up shots of the women feels a little too over-sexualized. It’s part of Minaj’s shtick — but is it part of theirs? Catch the band on tour in October to ask them yourselves.

Pianos Become The Teeth Stream Another Beautiful Single From ‘Keep You’

With each bit we hear from Pianos Become The Teeth‘s Epitaph Records debut, Keep You, we grow accustomed to their somewhat drastic change in sound. The complete omission of screaming previously found throughout their catalogue has left many fans scratching their heads (and bitching), but we’re embracing the new sound as it makes for some of the best material we’ve heard so far this year.

Following the incredible single “Repine,” “Late Lives,” which premiered over at BrooklynVegan today, continues PBTT’s shift with a gorgeously poignant and quietly powerful offering that builds in both beauty and sadness over the course of its nearly four-minute runtime. Featuring a slow melody, soaring, post-rock guitar work and Kyle Durfey’s clean vocal display, “Late Lives” serves as one of the band’s strongest tracks to date.

Stream the new single below and pre-order your own copy of Keep You before it drops on October 28. Read more »

Weezer 2014

Weezer Release “Back To The Shack” Music Video

Following a week that saw two new tracks from their upcoming album surface online, Weezer have returned to our front page with their official video for “Back To The Shack.”

Directed by Warren Fu (HAIM, Daft Punk), the video for “Back To The Shack” finds Weezer performing their latest hit on the surface of the moon. As the clip plays out, Fu incorporates a number of cool effects, including Zero-G guitar work and more slow motion than the latest Zach Snyder film. It’s all fun and works to further the world’s love for Weezer, but the song is what ultimately steals the show. You can view the clip below: Read more »

Lorde Streams New Single “Yellow Flicker Beat”

Lorde has delivered on the promise that she would share her contribution to The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 this week, and yes, it’s pretty much perfect.

“Yellow Flicker Beat” is a song drenched in romance and vengeance, with Lorde riding larger than life production to dizzying heights and back again. “I’m a princess cut from marble,” she sings in the opening lines, “smoother than a storm / And the scars that mark my body / they’re silver and gold.” It’s not exactly a great departure from the material that made Pure Heroine one of the biggest releases of 2014, but that’s not a complaint in any way. The more Lorde the better. You can stream “Yellow Flicker Beat” below: Read more »

Modern Baseball Announce Fall Headlining Tour

In a recent interview with UTG, Philadelphia’s Modern Baseball talked about wanting to sit on their most recent full-length, You’re Gonna Miss It All, for a little bit and tour as much as they can before trying to work on another record.

The band is doing just that. Currently flying back home from the UK after a mini-tour over there, MoBo has just announced that they are to embark on yet again another headlining tour, which will be their second one this year. They have been on numerous tour cycles with bands like The Wonder Years, I Am The Avalanche, You Blew It!, and in a few days, are set to support TWY and The Story So Far on another nationwide  fall tour.

This newly-announced headliner is set to kick off in their hometown in mid-November and will run through mid-December, with support from Knuckle Puck, Somos, and many more. Pre-sale tickets are now available here, and general sale starts on Friday, October 3. You can check out the tour poster and dates below. Read more »

One-Direction-Steal-My-Girl

Steal My Song: One Direction’s New Single Sounds A Lot Like A Classic New Found Glory Song

One Direction have spent the last several months touring the world in support of their 2013 effort, Midnight Memories. The group somehow found time amidst all their travels to record a new record, which is scheduled to hit stores in November, and earlier today the album’s first single found its way online. The only problem is – I swear I have heard (at least part of it) before.

Let’s rewind. New Found Glory switched gears in 2006 and released a laid back record known as Come Home. It’s an album that sounds unlike any other record from the Florida pop punk outfit, and it boasted a number of great tracks that have since become universally known as ‘fan favorites.’ The biggest, which also happened to be the album’s lead single, is known as “It’s Not Your Fault.” You can stream the song below: Read more »

Young Thug [Finally] Releases “Danny Glover” Music Video

Atlanta native Young Thug has finally released the official video for “Danny Glover,” a song that originally found its way online at the beginning of 2014.

You could make the argument that Young Thug rose to fame throughout 2013, but I think it makes more sense to contribute the genre takeover of Thugga Thugga to everything the up and coming emcee has delivered in 2014. There were a few hit singles last year, including “2 Cups Stuffed” and “Stoner,” but when “Danny Glover” hit it became clear that Young Thug was more than a flash in the pan talent. This was the track that made it clear Thugga would not be returning to the anonymity of underground rap anytime soon, and with the release of the track’s video he seems to be making that statement once again. The clip features performance footage, beautiful women, trippy editing tricks, and more smoke than your favorite Wiz Khalifa video. Check it out: Read more »
