Hoodie Allen releases the video for “Movie,” which is taken from his forthcoming studio album.
All aboard the feels train.
There are a handful of songs every year that possess the power to rattle your bones regardless of the time, place, or state of mind you are in when you hear them. They may make you happy, sad, remorseful, or even outright depressed, but regardless of how good or bad these emotions may be perceived by others there is a part of you that becomes fascinated by that particular track’s ability to move you. It’s like an addiction you never knew you needed, and even though it hurts you are willing to bear the pain …
Artist: Taylor Swift
Single: “Shake It Off”
Taylor Swift returned to the international stage earlier this week with the release of her new single, “Shake It Off.” The song is the first track to surface of Swift’s highly-anticipated new album, 1989, and it ushered in a whole new sound and style for the girl who has spent the better part of the last decade as America’s pop music sweetheart. If you missed the premiere, or if you simply need a few minutes to experience the single again, click below to view the track’s …
Artist: Metro Station
Song: “Love & War”
Roughly four years have passed since Trace Cyrus parted ways with Metro Station, but earlier this week the second most famous child of Billy Ray Cyrus announced his return to the group, and with it plans to release a new EP before the year is out. There is also a single, which stands as a firm reminder you can never go back to the way things used to be.
You may or may not have been a fan of Metro Station when they first burst onto the national stage, but I …
Our Fold are the latest and greatest buzz band to emerge from the rock underground, and even though you may have not heard their music before today the guys have already received an endorsement from the almighty Dave Grohl. Recently, the band released a new single called “She Goes On,” and after several dance-inducing spins this morning we decided to share that track with you.
Offering a sound that toes the line between old fashioned American rock and modern alternative rock that would make The Gaslight Anthem’s knees weak, Our Fold burst onto the international scene earlier this year. “She …
Song: “Summer’s Colour”
Album: Further Sky EP
Label: Run For Cover Records
The beginning chords to Basement’s surprise single “Summer’s Colour” is a feeling of humbling invitation, providing a backdrop for the beginning summer season. I could write for hours on my feelings about the band’s return to music, but I surmise that it is a best fit for this band for me to neglect much of the social aspects of their surprise return and stick with the music.
Beginning with bright chords that eventually lead us into the full return of the much missed Basement, “Summer’s Colour” …
Artist: Every Time I Die
Album: From Parts Unknown
As a full-fledged ‘ETIDIOT’ there are very few things in this world that excite me as much as new music from Every Time I Die. So it was with great anticipation that I pressed play on “Thirst,” the first single released from the band’s new Kurt Ballou-produced album From Parts Unknown. What I heard next took my excitement levels from six to midnight.
An absolute barnstormer of a track that explodes to life with a hellacious energy that doesn’t let up for a second of its 1:27 …
Artist: Say Anything
Single: “Six Six Six”
Label: Equal Vision Records
Being a Say Anything fan isn’t always easy. Max Bemis is possibly the most volatile songwriter in the scene — changing his style drastically between releases to fit whatever new concept he’s come up with. As seen in the bulk of 2012′s relatively disappointing Anarchy, My Dear, the drastic high concept style isn’t always successful, and many fans are left clamoring for the “glory days” of …Is a Real Boy and In Defense of the Genre. The problem with Anarchy, My Dear (ignoring the …
Artist: The Amity Affliction
Album: Let The Ocean Take Me
Label: Roadrunner Records
Back in 2012, The Amity Affliction released a raw, heartfelt album titled Chasing Ghosts. That was their third studio album, and it was their darkest release to date. It happens to be my favorite release of theirs so far, and now it seems they are on the path to releasing yet another emotion-gripping album later this year. Early this morning they officially announced their new album, Let The Ocean Take Me, as well as its release date, and the lead …
Growing up in the 1990s, I can recall several years where no one in hip-hop could touch the Bad Boy Records empire. It was the premiere label in urban music, and sitting on the throne was none other than Sean Combs – aka Puff Daddy. If you have never heard No Way Out in its entirety you have lived an unfulfilled life.
In the early 2000s, Puff Daddy became P. Diddy, and with the name change came a musical evolution that leaned heavily on pop influences and turned away many longtime listeners. Later releases found circles where they were appreciated, …
Artist: The Word Alive
Single: “Play The Victim”
Label: Fearless Records
The Word Alive released Life Cycles nearly two years ago. That album helped the band secure their spot in the metalcore scene and proved they deserve all of the hype surrounding them. After they confirmed they were working on their third studio album fans went a little ballistic, and understandably so. They recently started to perform a new song live, titled “Play The Victim,” and while it was only a small taste of something new it was a welcomed change.
After months of teasing, the band finally …
There is no stopping the rise of Tove Lo. This is your last chance to hop on the bandwagon before the scales tip and she’s featured in every pop outlet in print, on screen, and otherwise currently in existence. She’s ushering in a new age of downtempo electronic pop, and her latest single only further solidifies our faith in her power to change the top 40 landscape.
Nothing is quite like falling in love. Your brain spins with thoughts of everything that could flourish, your heat beats hard enough to thump out of your chest, and the world around …
