Less than a week later, those dreams have come true.

A new website appeared online this morning boasting a video featuring the studio version of Brand New’s latest material, as well as a link to download the single, titled “Mene,” for free. Yes, you can stream and download new material from Brand …

Instant-Gratification-Review

REVIEW: Dance Gavin Dance – ‘Instant Gratification’

Artist: Dance Gavin Dance
Album: Instant Gratification
Genre: Rock, Pop, Experimental

I typically hate reviews and editorials that begin with quotes, but when attempting to begin discussing the latest release from Dance Gavin Dance there was one quote that stuck in my mind like the hook of “Stroke God, Millionaire” will soon stick with all of you: “Art, in itself, is an attempt to bring order out of chaos.”

Stephen Sondheim will probably never be found sitting at the back of your local Dance Gavin Dance concert, but I cannot help thinking the legendary composer and lyricist would, at the …

So Help Us God: Kanye West Streams “Awesome”

Following the release of “All Day” just last week, Kanye West has shared a new song titled “Awesome.”

Allegedly an updated version of a song first premiered during a live performance nearly two years ago, “Awesome” is yet another vocoder-riddled track from Kanye West. It’s as if 808s And Heartbreaks happened all over again, only this time the lyrics speak to love (likely referencing wife Kim Kardashian) and lack the immediate catchiness of most the material contained on that album. That’s not to say the song is a waste of time altogether, but if you’re looking for the …

Stream Freddie Gibbs’ Surprise EP, ‘Pronto’

Freddie Gibbs made headlines around the globe last year for his genre-bending Pinata album, which was the result of a collaborative effort with Madlib. Those two are partnering again this summer for a series of high-profile festival appearances, but in the meantime Gibbs is focusing on his solo career, including the release of a surprise EP titled Pronto.

Released online late Sunday night, March 8, Freddie Gibbs’ latest solo offering is a three-track collection of new songs that bang hard and offer some of the better rap verses to hit the streets in 2015. It’s nothing too far outside …

Kanye West Shares Studio Version Of “All Day”

Following a live premiere during the BRIT awards last week, Kanye West has shared the studio version of “All Day.”

Rumored to be the latest single from West’s highly-anticipated new album, “All Day” is an high energy track that bangs even harder now than it did during its premiere (which came complete with flamethrowers). It’s an ego-fueled, give-no-fucks ode to the crazy level of success, fame, and sophistication Kanye believes to have achieved in his life. Theophilus London and newcomer Allan London help round out the hooks, but when all is said and done it’s only Kanye that people will …

Carly-Rae-Jepsen-I-Really-Like-You

You’re Going To Really, Really, Really Like The New Carly Rae Jepson Single

Carly Rae Jepsen may have just done the impossible. Though many believed it could never be done, it seems the Canadian vocalist has finally recorded a song that may surpass the catchiness and lasting popularity of “Call Me Maybe.”

Earlier this morning, March 2, Carly Rae Jepsen shared a new song with the world titled “I Really Like You.” The sugar-coated pop anthem offers a high energy tale of love, or at least a crush, and the rush of excitement that follows that first encounter with someone special. The hook may be the simplest chorus of the last year, and …

Big-Sean-2015

Big Sean Stuns With “One Man Can Change The World”

With a week to go before Dark Sky Paradise hits, Big Sean has shared what may soon be considered a modern classic.

Built upon a steady piano accompaniment, “One Man Can Change The World” pairs Big Sean with Kanye West and John Legend for an ode to a child’s endless potential. Sean has always been one to speak of his ambition and how it lead him to turn his dreams into reality, but here he takes things to another level altogether. There’s always time spent paying tribute to Sean’s late grandmother, including a cell phone message. You can stream the …

Furious 7

Wiz Khalifa & Iggy Azalea Share ‘Furious 7′ Track “Go Hard or Go Home”

With less than two months to go until Furious 7 rolls into theaters, Wiz Khalifa and Iggy Azalea have shared their collaborative contribution to the film’s soundtrack.

Titled “Go Hard Or Go Home,” the first track to surface from Furious 7 puts an emphasis on fun and family. The hook may repeat the title of the song over and over, but the heart of the track can be summarized with the line “Give it all for the family.” Wiz and Iggy swap verses throughout, with Wiz taking the reins and (surprisingly) keeping pot talk to a minimum. You can stream …
