REVIEW: The Cinema – ‘Talking In Your Sleep’

Artist: The Cinema
Title: Talking In Your Sleep
Label: 8123 Records
Genre: Indie Pop

In 2011, a new musical force was brought upon the music world when Lydia’s frontman Leighton Antelman and producer Matt Malpass created The Cinema. This resulted in their debut album My Blood Is Full Of Airplanes the same year, which was met with critical acclaim and showed a new direction in Antelman’s musical endeavors. Fast forward three years and the collaboration brings us Talking In Your Sleep, which takes My Blood Is Full Of Airplanes and sprinkles layers of vocal transformations and epic …

Kendrick Lamar Debuts Untitled New Song On ‘Colbert Report’

Stephen Colbert is in the midst of wrapping up his long-running and highly successful Comedy Central show, The Colbert Report, and last night he asked Kendrick Lamar to help him say goodbye.

Serving as the final musical guest The Colbert Report will ever host, K. Dot partook in a short conversation with Stephen before surprising the audience, as well as viewers at home, with the world premiere of a brand new song. The track has no title, or if it does that information has not been made public, but the vibes you get when it plays fit well with …

REVIEW: Nicki Minaj – ‘The Pinkprint’

Artist: Nicki Minaj
Album: The Pinkprint
Genre: Hip-Hop
Label: Young Money

Whenever new material from Nicki Minaj arrives online people are quick to ask whether the pop star’s delivery falls under the category of ‘radio’ or ‘mixtape’ Minaj. The former is typically viewed a hook-heavy club offering, while the latter tends to refer to tracks where Minaj drops all pop sensibility in preference of her hip-hop roots. The Pinkprint is a perfect combination of both, though I would argue that it offers the least radio ready collection of tracks Nicki has shared with fans to date. That’s not a complaint, …

Enter Shikari Premiere “Slipshod”

Enter Shikari are known for pushing the boundaries of their signature post-hardcore/electronic blend with every release, but a bonus track from their forthcoming record has went beyond most listeners’ potential imagination. Entitled “Slipshod,” the cut erratically swings from a screamed Rou Reynolds monologue concerning his poor service at a high-end restaurant over swirling instrumentals into a moombahton-esque breakdown, all the while never losing its gargantuan levels of energy.

Absurd in its own right, this does not even begin to describe the accompanying cartoon visuals portraying a conflict worthy of more than its two-minute runtime. Without further ado, though, follow the …

Today is the second best day of the year, and that’s only because tomorrow will be ten times better. D’Angelo is officially back. The rumors were true, though they took a decade to reach the public, and we have new music to share with you as proof.

Modest Mouse Are Teasing New Music

Let’s be honest. You’re itching for a new Modest Mouse album. They haven’t released a full-length studio album since 2007′s We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank with the last piece of music being released in 2009′s No One’s First and You’re Next EP. But, your answers and prayers may be answered come next year.

Today, the folk alternative group created a new Instagram account where they posted a picture of a 7-inch vinyl record with the words “Side A” and “Lampshades On Fire” written on one side of it. No recent announcements have been made regarding a new …

Joanna Newsom

Joanna Newsom Will Share First New Music in Five Years “Soon”

Folk harpist and singer-songwriter Joanna Newsom has been pretty silent over the last few years. After tying the knot with Andy Samberg, making a cameo on Portlandia, and starring in the new Paul Thomas Anderson film, she’s been laying relatively low. With the release of her massive record Have One On Me, a two-hour saga of whimsical fairy folk, in 2010, it was safe to assume she needed time to work on an adequate follow-up. Now, as FACT points out, that material may be on its way.

In a new interview with Dazed, she said …

Coldplay Announce Seventh Full-Length Album, ‘A Head Full of Dreams’

It has been only seven months since we were graced with Coldplay‘s sixth studio album, Ghost Stories, and already, our favorite band of Brits are back in the studio working on a follow-up.

In a recent interview with BBC Radio 1, lead vocalist Chris Martin announced that the group is in the middle of recording their seventh full-length record, which will be titled A Head Full of Dreams.

“The way we look at it, it’s like the last Harry Potter book,” said Martin. “That’s not to say there won’t be another thing one day, but this is …

iwrestledabearonce Join Artery Recordings, Tease New Album

The world has been a lot quieter than usual this year due to the lack of new material released by the chaotic and often very funny iwrestledabearonce. The group did not release any new material this year, and truth be told they also managed to stay largely out of the spotlight. That is no longer the case, however, as the group behind 2013′s Late For Nothing have finally revealed their plans for the future.

Breaking their silence over Facebook with a short update for fans, iwrestledabearonce have revealed that they are already hard at work on the next studio …

Torche Announce New Album, European Tour and U.S. Dates With Municipal Waste

Sludge-Pop monsters Torche have revealed the title and release date for their new album, along with a slew of stateside and European tour dates. The band has titled their fourth LP Restarter, which I suppose is appropriate given it’s their first release for Relapse Records. It hits stores on February 24, while pre-orders should be available shortly.

On top of the band’s previously announced tour supporting Clutch, Torche also announced a January run of dates with Municipal Waste and a lengthy European tour for May. Click through for all of the dates and a short album teaser featuring 30 …

Palisades Announce New Album, ‘Mind Games’

New Jersey’s own Palisades just announced the release of their sophomore album, Mind Games, which will drop on January 13. After introducing their rigorous electronic hardcore sound in their debut record Outcasts, the band is planning on continuing this hype with a even more developed sound on Mind Games.

This can surely be acheived; the album will feature prominent artists like blackbear, Champs, and Garret Rapp of The Color Morale, as well as having production done by game-changer, Erik Ron.

Fans can go to their merch site and pre-order the album and bundle packages here. The …
