Stream Cheatahs’ New Track, “Controller”

Cheatahs are streaming the first track off of their upcoming EP, Sunne, due out Feb. 24, 2015 on Witchita Recordings.

“Controller” is a vast, atmospheric track. With layers upon layers creating the sound, “Controller” features a wide arrangement of instrumentation to complement the sparse and ambient vocals found throughout. The lines “I just don’t know what’s real anymore” seem fitting for the experience the track permits.

Cheatahs released their self-titled debut album earlier this year, and are showing no signs of rest with the quick release of the Sunne EP.

Follow us after the jump to experience “Controller” for …

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 …

Angels & Airwaves Release New Song, “Bullets In The Wind”

After releasing the music video for “The Wolkpack” last week, Angels & Airwaves has surprised fans with a new musical vibe on the latest song to appear off their upcoming album, The Dream Walker.

“Bullets in The Wind,” premiering on AltPress, is slightly surprising as it sounds a lot different than past releases. The song consists of an intro riff that resembles an indie pop sound rather than the staple space rock that AVA has been known to produce.

Here is what Tom DeLonge had to say to AltPress about the track:

“Here’s a left turn

one-direction-four-album-2

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 …

Charli-XCX-Sucker

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 …

Good Luck Varsity May Be Done, But There’s Still New Material To Be Heard

About a year ago, Michigan band Good Luck Varsity went their separate ways after differences between members of the band became too great to continue their efforts.

Rumblings of an upcoming album we’re quickly overshadowed by the splitting of the band, and many were left to wonder if any new material would ever surface from Good Luck Varsity.

Today, former guitarist/singer Evan Baker announced some news about Good Luck Varsity via his new group, American Arson. The statement indicates that the guys had indeed recorded a new album before the dissolution of GLV, though it made no confirmation of …

dear youth

REVIEW: The Ghost Inside – ‘Dear Youth’

Artist: The Ghost Inside
Album: Dear Youth
Label: Epitaph Records
Genre: Metalcore

Over the course of their steady climb up the ranks of the music scene, The Ghost Inside have developed a dedicated fanbase through the combination of crushing metalcore, memorable choruses, and brutally honest lyricism (e.g. “Engine 45″). Thus, there wasn’t necessarily a pressing obligation for the group to evolve as long as they stuck to their proven formula, but it became clear settling for safety wouldn’t be the case when it was revealed that their newest effort, Dear Youth, would be a loose concept album. As noted …

Earl Sweatshirt

Earl Sweatshirt Streams New Track, “45″

…or part of it at least.

On Wednesday, via Twitter, Odd Future heavyweight Earl Sweatshirt directed his followers’ attention to a YouTube stream for a track called “45.” However, as it runs just over a minute in length and ends somewhat abruptly, it sounds as though it may just be a clip or it fades into another track.

Judging by Earl’s tweet of “ALCHEMIST / SWAMPMAN,” we’d imagine that Alchemist handled the old school, ’70s-esque production.

Regardless of length, the bit we do get is super solid and we look forward to…the rest of it? Realistically, we look forward …

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:…

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 …

Stop What You’re Doing And Rage To Big K.R.I.T.’s “King Of The South”

This week the music industry has dedicated every speck of free space to praise and promote the new album from Taylor Swift. In a year where not a single artist has managed to go platinum with their album release, Swift is believed to be the last great hope for the music industry. If you’re someone who believes that to be true then you likely don’t understand how this business works. We don’t need platinum records in order to have success stories, just dedicated fans who support their favorite artist.

The reason I bring this up is because I believe …

Rick Ross Streams “If They Knew” Featuring K Michelle

Keeping himself in the headlines while fans await the release of his new album, Rick Ross has shared yet another Hood Billionaire promotional single.

“If They Knew” is the kind of beat Rick Ross fans wait all year to hear the boss ride. It’s a fun and driving production, with a wonderful blend of instrumentation backing Ross’ gruff vocal delivery. The presence of K Michelle on the hook helps raise the track to a level of infectiousness the radio will embrace, but the verses would be just as strong without her accompaniment. You can stream the track below:…
