Daft Punk Legos 2

Daft Punk Legos May Be On The Way

It looks like there will be more Daft Punk goodness in 2015 apart from a new documentary. The iconic electronic duo of Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter may get turned into Lego figurines in the near future.

According to Radio.com, Lego’s Ideas page has a Daft Punk pitch with over 5,000 supporters. The idea includes a robot world of mini figurines, guitars, synths, mini pads, and a lighting rig (!), including sets inspired by their “Around The World” video and “ALIVE 2007″ stage. Best of all, Lego seems open to the idea. “This project is speeding and …

Celldweller Releases Epic New Song, “Down To Earth”

Detroit, Michigan’s electronic rock heavyweight Celldweller is back in action with a hard-hitting new track from Love, the second installment of his End of an Empire record. The new release, End of an Empire (Chapter 02: Love), is due out on Dec. 5 via FiXT Music.

Celldweller’s new track, “Down To Earth,” which premiered earlier today via Loudwire, is one hell of a trip — clocking in at a runtime of roughly seven minutes.

James Blake’s New Album Will Drop in “About Five Months,” May Feature Kanye West

James Blake isn’t one to take a break. While the UK crooner and electronic producer’s last album, Overgrown, came out in 2012, he’s been hard at work since, touring the globe, DJing sets, and dropping new songs “200 Press” and “Building It Still.” Now, the singer-songwriter has announced his next album is on the way.

In an interview with the Miami New Times (via CoS), Blake said that the new album is “seventy percent done” and should drop in “about five months.” For those of you following his mini updates, the Kanye West rumors are …

What You Didn’t Know: Jesse Voorn

Focusing on lesser known aspects of artists, resident staff writer Michael Giegerich’s column, What You Didn’t Know, looks to help people gain a better understanding of their favorite musicians from all levels of the music scene.

Signed to John Dahlbäck’s Mutants Records, it’s no surprise Jesse Voorn has the ability to crank out absolutely massive house tunes. His most recent effort, “Part of Me,” exemplifies this notion with a melodic progressive house climb before climaxing into an electro drop that commands listeners to be on their feet.

With this track currently dominating a certain staffer’s recent playlists, there seemed …

What You Didn’t Know: Duvoh

Focusing on lesser known aspects of artists, resident staff writer Michael Giegerich’s column, What You Didn’t Know, looks to help people gain a better understanding of their favorite musicians from all levels of the music scene.

Signed to Panda Funk Records, progressive house duo Duvoh recently released a massive festival-ready cut that is begging to become one of the scene’s next anthems. With massive, pulsating chords and a powerful vocal performance courtesy of Adrian Delgado to match, “Darkness I Needed” is everything one could ask for in a singular uplifting soundtrack.

Thus, we decided there was no better time …

Enter Shikari

STREAM: Enter Shikari – “The Last Garrison”

Our friends from across the pond, Enter Shikari, just unleashed the new track “The Last Garrison,” the first single off of their upcoming record, The Mindsweep. The track definitely is in a new distinct musical direction, with a heavier focus on the drum and bass and electronic elements. However, this is still Enter Shikari, so the grand scale and heavy hardcore-influenced sections are alive and well.

The thing I love about Enter Shikari is their ability to really push themselves in a wide variety of directions, exploring what it means to be a band. “The Last Garrison” is …

Under The Gun sent photographer Derek Scancarelli to Madison Square Garden in New York City to photograph Bassnectar on October 4, 2014.

Ahhhh, The Garden. The internationally renowned arena over New York’s Pennsylvania Station. It’s home to the New York Rangers, New York Knicks, and is the only venue to ever have a residency by Billy Joel. You can see Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey’s Circus or a New York Liberty Game. As of last weekend, Bassnectar will be added to the list of iconic performances to grace the stage at MSG, making for one hell of a check-off …

Watch Liars’ Freaky Video for “I’m No Gold”

At the beginning of this year, Los Angeles electro-punk group Liars put out their dark, eerie new album MESS. They also shared a video for “Pro Anti Anti” which showed clay versions of their faces being melted. It was a perfect visual companion to the song to show their edgy sound and its twisted undertones.

Now they’re getting a little darker in their new “I’m No Gold” video.

The band’s fascination with faces continues within the visuals for “I’m No Gold.” Angus Andrew’s wild faces and nonstop hair flipping gets the limelight in Laurie Lynch’s video for a …
