We Came As Romans Stream “The World I Used To Know”

Michigan natives We Came As Romans continue their transformation from breakdown-loving bad boys to radio rock titans this afternoon with the premiere of “The World I Used To Know.”

It has been a minute since fans last heard from We Came As Romans, and in that time the band has spent a lot of time developing their skills as both songwriters and musicians. The band reportedly wrote forty songs for their upcoming self-titled album, but in the end decided that only ten of those tracks were good enough to make the actual record. “The World I Used To Know” was …

SINGLE REVIEW: Luke Bryan – “Kick The Dust Up”

Artist: Luke Bryan
Song: “Kick The Dust Up”
Album: Kill The Lights

Two years after crashing the bro country party with an album chock full of future hit singles, Luke Bryan has kicked off the promotion for his latest release with an incredibly underwhelming ode to farm town parties.

“Kick The Dust Up” is the kind of song that wants to remind you of a time when country music was actually inspired by cornfields, dirt roads, and late nights spent with the farmer’s daughter, getting drunk alongside your best friends. If that is all you want from your music — …

A$AP Rocky Catches Everyone Off Guard With “LSD”

A$AP Rocky has been dropping hot track after hot track for the past several weeks while promoting his forthcoming sophomore album, and earlier today he premiered what may be the best one yet.

“LSD” is the kind of song that, if you couldn’t already guess, could only come from one or twenty long nights spent under the influence of the world’s most powerful drug. No, I’m not talking about something you take from a shirtless frat guy at a rave, but rather the one drug we all use and abuse on a regular basis: Love. While guitars play, Rocky croons …

Nate Ruess Shares “Great Big Storm”

Earlier this morning, Nate Ruess continued to showcase his pop prowess by unveiling another new single titled “Great Big Storm.” Give it a listen after the break.

The fun. frontman’s newest track is taken from his forthcoming LP, Grand Romantic, which is set to arrive on June 16 via Fueled By Ramen. It is our third taste of the 33-year-old’s debut solo album following the release of “Nothing Without Love” and “ahHa.”

While I’m usually a fan of Ruess’ introspective, radio-ready anthems, something about “Great Big Storm” just doesn’t sit well with me. Sure, it’s …

Wolf Alice

ESSENTIAL LISTENING: Wolf Alice – “Bros”

North London rock group Wolf Alice has been getting plenty of hype in the last few years, but the teens have yet to let it get to their head. The four-piece dart between ’90s rock, moody grunge, aerial electronics, and dusty atmospherics similarly to the Smashing Pumpkins or The Breeders. After releasing several EPs over the past few years and the uber catchy single “Moaning Lisa Smile,” Wolf Alice are finally releasing their debut LP, My Love Is Cool, on June 23 via RCA Records. On that full-length, Wolf Alice return for a record that sees focused eyes on …

Adam Lambert Announces New Album, Streams “Ghost Town”

Adam Lambert has long shed the title of American Idol alum and established himself as a dominant force in the world of pop music. You never know what to expect from Lambert when he chooses to create new music, but you always know it will be something different than whatever he delivered before. That drive to constantly find new paths to pop music success is one of the many reasons I love watching Lambert’s career, and today I think he caught everyone off guard with the lead single for his recently announced third studio album.

“Ghost Town” is more or …

RATATAT Stream “Cream On Chrome,” Their First New Single Since 2010

Ratatat are finally back, after an excruciatingly long five years since their last release, 2010′s LP4.

The New York duo have been next to silent for the entirety of their time out of the spotlight. However, they are playing at Coachella tonight, which you can see much later on the festival’s YouTube live stream.

As far as where this track will end up, no official information has been provided but rumblings of a presumed LP5 have been floating through the industry ether for some time. “Cream On Chrome” is a funky, upbeat, and intricate jam reminiscent of the …

Watch a Video for Torres’ Intense New Single “Sprinter”

Singer-songwriter Mackenzie Scott is a deadly powerhouse. She may seem sweet onstage as Torres, shuffling her shoes with witty banter, but once she grabs her guitar and tilts her head back to sing, she becomes a force to be reckoned with. Her sophomore album, Sprinter, drops May 4 via Partisan Records. In anticipation of its release, she’s shared the album’s title track with a brand new video.

On “Sprinter,” Torres uses a country-infused riff to snap through a dark, cavernous memory of her past. Scott talks about bursting through disillusionment, danger, and confusion to find a heartfelt return …

Florence + The Machine Release New Single, “Ship To Wreck”

After fans have been sitting and waiting for Florence + The Machine to come out with more music for nearly three years, their third full-length record How Big How Blue How Beautiful is certainly one of the most anticipated albums of 2015.

After releasing the impressive singles “What Kind Of Man” and “St June,” today FATM dropped “Ship To Wreck,” a bouncy track that harbors a more developed style of their debut, Lungs. Hearing the past three singles since the announcement, I can tell that this new era for Florence is going to be raw, emotional, and very …
