Pusha T Surprises Fans With The Release Of “Lunch Money”

Oh shit. The rest of hip-hop might as well take the day off because Pusha T and Kanye West just delivered a surprise track that is going to have people talking until long after the sun goes down.

Featuring a beat that makes “Numbers On The Board” sound like child’s play, “Lunch Money” finds King Push going in over a production that could have only been conceived by Yeezus himself. It sounds like a sci-fi flick meets an underground drug ring, and the lyrics serve as a strong reminder why Pusha T is the hottest emcee in music today. You …

REVIEW: One Direction – ‘Four’

Artist: One Direction
Album: Four
Genre: Pop
Label: Columbia/Syco

A year after delivering their hit-filled record Midnight Memories, One Direction have returned with a new album that features a far more mature sound.

It’s hard to understand when the members of One Direction found time to record new material over the last twelve months. Between seemingly endless world tour plans, promotional appearances, charitable efforts, pop-up shops, and everything in between, it’s kind of hard to believe the five-piece boy band have recorded and released an album every year since 2011. Four is by far the most mature record of …

AC/DC Deliver A New Classic With “Rock Or Bust”

Get your devil horns ready…

2014 has not treated AC/DC as well as the aging rock icons deserve, but nothing will stop the band from sharing new material with fans. Their latest album, Rock Or Bust, is due next month, and early this morning the record’s killer title track found its way online.

The release of the title track follows the stream and video of “Play Ball,” a single which is perfectly okay, but nothing impressive, especially when compared to the band’s catalog. “Rock Or Bust” is another story entirely, finding a fist pump ready pace early and delivering …

Charli XCX Continues To Impress With “Gold Coins”

Charli XCX has become the latest promising young artist to have the release of their debut album fumbled by a major label with no idea how to promote talent that falls outside the realm of whatever is popular at radio today. Her sophomore album, Sucker, was scheduled to arrive months ago, but at this point it’s still awaiting release. There is a December release date set now, but word on the street is that another delay may be in the future.

All that industry bullshit aside, Charli XCX is continuing to share new music with fans while working out …

SINGLE REVIEW: Sleeping With Sirens – “Kick Me”

Artist: Sleeping With Sirens
Song: “Kick Me”
Album: TBA
Genre: Post-Hardcore, Punk

Last year, Sleeping With Sirens released their third album, Feel, and have been touring in support of it for quite a while, including the current world tour with their good buddies in Pierce The Veil. For the most part, the band has stuck to their unique sound, while bringing in a host of interesting guest vocalists including rapper MGK on their lead single “Alone.” This past summer, Sleeping With Sirens left their original home of Rise Records and have just now announced their signing to Epitaph

Stream One Direction’s Ed Sheeran-Penned Single “18″

One Direction are gearing up to release their new album Four, and early this morning another track from the highly-anticipated record found its way online.

Every One Direction album has to have two or three acoustic driven tracks, and for Four it looks like “18″ will be the power-ballad fans cannot resist. The Ed Sheeran-penned track finds the boys turned men crooning about young love that has since matured. Speaking of maturity, their voices also sound noticeably more evolved since the nights spent making Midnight Memories. You can stream the song, in full, below:…

Sleeping With Sirens Join Epitaph Records, Release “Kick Me” Music Video

Following several increasingly successful years with Rise Records, Sleeping With Sirens have announced that they are the newest members of the Epitaph Records family. The band has also announced the completion of their latest record and are celebrating their big news with the release of the record’s first single.

I know a little bit of time has passed since Sleeping With Sirens have released new music, and after hearing what they have been working on it’s clear that a lot has changed in the members’ lives over the last year and a half. “Kick Me,” which debuted online alongside its …

Copeland Stream “Erase” And Our Knees Go Weak

Copeland are one of the few bands that still seem to leave us fumbling for words to accurately describe the way experiencing their art makes us feel. From the very beginning of their career this band has been able to reach through the strongest walls and touch the coldest hearts with a few chords and the ever-so-soft croon of Aaron Marsh. Their latest, “Erase,” is no different. We first heard the song teased back in September, but early this morning a stream of the Ixora track found its way online. Check it out:…

Kendrick Lamar Releases “I” Music Video

The return of King Kendrick is in full swing, and earlier today the Compton native shared the long-awaited video for his latest single.

Opening in a dimly lit nightclub filled with sex, drugs, and violence, the first few moments of the video for “I” seems to take viewers to the world that inspired good kid, mAAd city. Just as things begin to feel a bit too familiar however, the vibe of the video switches into something a bit more akin to a house party, with stylish dancing, flash mob street dancing, bicycles, and just enough performance footage to …

Circa Survive Stream “Only The Sun”

Hold on to your butts, rock fans. Circa Survive have shared a new song off their forthcoming album and it’s guaranteed to make your day a bit better.

Titled “Only The Sun,” the latest offering off Descensus is a large and dramatic track that offers a little bit of everything Circa fans have come to expect from the alternative rock headliners. It’s not a great departure from their previous material, but on repeat listens it becomes increasingly clear that the band are trying to push their sound in new directions without abandoning the world of music that has supported them …

CHVRCHES Stream ‘Hunger Games’ Contribution “Dead Air”

There was a time not too long ago when Lorde made headlines for sharing one of her contributions to the upcoming film, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1. Her song was great and everything fans had hoped the young singer would deliver, but she is not the only headline grabbing talent to have a new song featured on the highly-anticipated film’s soundtrack.

This morning, Scottish synth pop trio CHVRCHES shared a stream of a new song titled “Dead Air.” The song, which is also set to appear in Mockingjay Part 1, is everything you would expect from the …

Wu-Tang Clan Drop New Single “Ruckus In B Minor”

We are fast-approaching the release of A Better Tomorrow, and early this morning the Wu-Tang Clan took steps to ensure our anticipation for its arrival remained high with the surprise release of a new song.

Titled “Ruckus In B Minor,” the latest single from Wu-Tang Clan relies on live instrumentation to create a beat for the crew to ride. This is thrilling in some ways, but also pulls the grip further away from the gritty sound many fans have longed to hear brought back to the group’s music. I vibe with it however, and I think those with an …
