Good Morning, Gorgeous

Listen To Good Morning, Gorgeous’ Beautiful New Song, “Cynthia”

As you probably know by now, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. While it seems most women beat this cancer nowadays, it’s easy to forget that there are still many women who succumb to it.

For one band in particular, this fact is painfully real. The guitarist/vocalist for Good Morning, Gorgeous, John Michael Perez, lost his mother to breast cancer at the end of August. In the wake of her passing he wrote a song for her which includes an audio clip of their very last conversation. If you’re ready for some tears, you can listen to it below …

When the group began working together they …

Ice Nine Kills

Ice Nine Kills Release Acoustic Stream For “Jonathan”

Earlier this year Ice Nine Kills released a new album titled The Predator Becomes The Prey. One of the tracks off the album is a song titled “Jonathan.” This particular track holds a special place in the hearts of the band members, as a friend of theirs (named Jonathan) is suffering from a rare mitochondrial disorder that is slowly stealing away his sight, hearing, memory and motor skills. The band has decided to record an acoustic version of this song, and it features a brief interview with Jonathan, as well as some additional details on his condition. You can …

Alex G

Stream Aleg G’s New Single “Hollow”

There are some genres so flooded with artists that it’s hard to decide what actually stands out from the rest. This year, the sappy singer-songwriter trope has been given a diamond in the pile and there’s no denying he’s as talented as he sounds. Pennsylvania native Alex Giannascoli, or better known as Alex G, pens that wobbling acoustic melody that makes you struggle to realize what’s the bigger emotion inside of you: nostalgic happiness or despondent sadness. He knows what he’s doing, and if he keeps it up, he could be this generation’s Elliott Smith.

The 21-year-old is still attending …

You + Me, the new side project of singers Dallas Green (City and Colour) and Alecia Moore (P!nk) have released a lyric video for their song “Capsized,” which comes off the duo’s upcoming debut release, Rose Ave.

Ooo Karen O

Spike Jonze Surprises Karen O With “Ooo” Music Video Feat. Elle Fanning

Last week, Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O shared her first ever solo album, a short release filled with minute-long songs about heartbreak, love, and isolation. Even though it was released in 2014, the songs were written years ago from the comfort of her bedroom when she was much younger. To capture that spirit, her ex and famous director Spike Jonze created a music video for the album’s opening track, “Ooo,” that speaks to what Crush Songs is all about.

The video sees Elle Fanning dancing around the New York Metropolitan Opera House in childish fanfare. It nails the mood …
