Coldplay Debut New Track, “Ocean”

Coldplay’s sixth full-length album, Ghost Stories, is set to hit stores nationwide on May 19. In anticipation of the release, which will act as a follow-up to 2011’s Mylo Xyloto, the group recently debuted a brand new song while recording an in-studio session for BBC Radio 1. Titled “Ocean,” you can check out the ebbing acoustic ballad by following the jump below.

This newest offering is more straightforward than the previously released  “Magic” and “Midnight,” both of which were noticeable departures from the outfit’s earlier efforts. Comment below and let us know what …

Here Is The Reason Why Everyone Is Suddenly Interested In Avril Lavigne Again

Avril Lavigne – aka Mrs. Chad Kroeger – has gone through many musical evolutions since the days when she hung out with Sk8r Bois at the local mall, but her latest transformation may baffle even longtime supporters (if those even exist at this point).

“Hello Kitty” is the latest single and video to be release from Lavigne as a means to promote her 2013 self-titled album. It’s a wildly chaotic clip, which finds Avril and a team of Japanese dancers attempting to spark viral video trendiness with over-the-top visuals, weird costumes, and all the bright colors you can possibly imagine. …

Fall In Love With Conor Oberst All Over Again With The B-Side “Fast Friends”

Record Store Day was this past weekend, and Bright Eyes’ mastermind Conor Oberst was behind one of the most sought after 7″ releases. I managed to snag a copy, but only hitting up a second store because my vinyl loving heart felt there was a hole that needed to be filled even though I had already spent $89. It was worth it, however, because the song this post centers around is now a part of my personal collection.

That blurb wasn’t meant to brag or boast, though it may read that way. I’m simply trying to find the best way …

SINGLE REVIEW: Benny Benassi & John Dahlback – “Blink Again”

In 2014, John Dahlback and Benny Benassi have little left to prove. While Dahlback has been a staple within the electro house music scene for years through his productions and record label, Benassi has reigned as an international superstar whose popularity has transcended electronic music and bled over into the mainstream. Thus, both artists could easily throw in the production towel and perform at clubs across the globe for the rest of their days, but it appears their intentions lie elsewhere on their Ultra Records backed single, “Blink Again.”…

LykkeLi

Stream Lykke Li’s New Single, “Gunshot”

Indie songstress Lykke Li has released her third single, “Gunshot,” off her upcoming third studio album today. The single takes more of a sodden pop route, tracing heartbroken lyrics out in a pretty produced, anthemic piece of sweeping vocals and sturdy guitar work. All in all, it sounds in line with her other work while ditching some of the old hooks.

The album, titled I Never Learn, is slated to come out May 5 via LL/Atlantic Records. So far we’ve also heard “Love Me Like I’m Not Made of Stone” and “No Rest For The Wicked

Caribou Owen Pallett

Daphni (Caribou) and Owen Pallett Team Up On Two New Songs

Electronic musician Daphni (Dan Snaith of Caribou) and Canadian renaissance man Owen Pallett have collaborated on a split single, “Julia” b/w “Tiberius,” that’s up for streaming now via FACT. They’re exactly what you would imagine: dance-worthy tracks that progress somewhat slowly, intertwining Pallett’s violin beautifully and, at times, eerily. It’s exactly what we didn’t know we needed.

If you feel like lyric-less music just needs to be loud to be experienced properly, think again. Snaith tweeted some advice on how to listen the songs at their fullest. We vote follow his word.…

After several years’ worth of producing and promoting, Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney announced their new album, Turn Blue, would be released on May 13, closing the longest gap between albums they’ve ever had in the span of their career. Today, the band has shared the title track.

“Turn Blue” is the second single released off the album and sounds more produced and in line with Portugal. the Man than their earlier rock, but it’s still got the …

Grey Season Stream “Satellites”

I hope you’re ready to fall in love because up and coming Boston folk outfit Grey Season have shared the first song off their forthcoming debut album.

Having only been a band for a little over a year, it’s hard to believe how far Grey Season have come from the time they first appeared on our radar. “Satellites” showcases the latest evolution of their sound, transitioning from simple folk offering to full-blown alternative rock jam halfway through without jeopardizing the simplicity of the song’s message. You can stream the song below:…

SWOON: Lana Del Rey Shares “West Coast”

Bow down, bitches. The queen is back.

With only a handful of weeks left before the rumored release of her Sophomore album Ultraviolence, Lana Del Rey has shared a new single titled “West Coast.” The song builds on the sound found across Born To Die and Paradise, with heavy influence from 70s fuzz rock and a hook that is almost too hypnotic for description. Lana’s voice is layered thickly over dense guitar reverb and light drumming, singing of love and attraction, but never revealing enough to make her seem too vulnerable. She’s sweet-yet-distant, with a sense of mystery …

NEEDTOBREATHE feature

NEEDTOBREATHE Stream “Brother”

Before today, nine of the eleven songs from NEEDTOBREATHE‘s upcoming album Rivers In The Wasteland had found their way online through various premieres and video releases. This morning, track ten came online, and once again we’re blown away by North Carolina’s most exciting rock band.

We have written at length about NEEDTOBREATHE’s desire to return to a more organic, acoustic-driven sound with Rivers, and that is once again what we find on the new song “Brother.” It seems the process of making the new album caused the members of NEEDTOBREATHE to reevaluate their relationship to one another, and …
