Damon Albarn Hints At New Gorillaz Album in 2016

Damon Albarn has been busy this year promoting his debut solo album, Everyday Robots, which was met with high praise upon release. This means he is keeping the status of famed UK rock outfit Blur under wraps, where he serves as frontman for the band. Most recently though, he came out of the clouds with another project that could once again see the light of day: The virtual cartoon band we know as Gorillaz.

According to Albarn in an interview with The Sydney Morning Herald, he has stated that he is in the “process of reactivating” the …

REVIEW: Young Statues – ‘The Flatlands Are Your Friend’

Artist: Young Statues
Album: The Flatlands Are Your Friend
Genre: Indie/Emo
Label: Run For Cover Records

I walked out of my apartment and took the elevator down to the lobby. I situated my headphones onto my ears, walked to the door, and saw that the rain was coming down in sheets. I was running late and since I was picking up my girlfriend from her night class, I didn’t have time to run back upstairs and grab an umbrella or jacket. So I hit play on the new Young Statues record, The Flatlands Are Your Friend, threw my hood …

Gwen-Stefani-2014

Gwen Stefani Returns With New Single “Baby Don’t Lie”

This may seem almost impossible to believe, but eight long years have passed since Gwen Stefani released any new material. For a short time she was the reigning queen of alternative pop, but then her focus switched to family and though we were sad we could not complain.

Today, Gwen Stefani is back in music headlines with the release of a new single titled “Baby Don’t Lie.” The song is built on thick waves of anthemic synth, which Stefani uses to craft a story about romance and deception that harkens back to her previous hits while delivering a decidedly more …

fit for a king

REVIEW: Fit For A King – ‘Slave To Nothing’

Artist: Fit For A King
Album: Slave To Nothing
Genre: Metalcore
Label: Solid State Records

If any band had the year of their lives in 2013, the honor would most likely go to Texan metalcore outfit, Fit For A King. After laying claim to the most successful debut in Solid State Records history via the sonic yin and yang of Creation/Destruction, the group proceeded to hop on tour after tour while being granted the ability to re-record their independently released full-length of yesteryear, Descendants. Rather than dedicate 2014 to more touring in support of both releases, though, …
