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.”…

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.…

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 …

Try And Resist The Hook On The Summer Set’s New Single

Okay, right off the top I have to tell you this song is not exactly new. “Lightning In A Bottle” was originally released in 2013 while building excitement for The Summer’s Set‘s third full length album, Legendary, but it has been given new life this week by receiving the official music video treatment.

Anyway, if there is any chance you made it through last year without experiencing “Lightning In A Bottle” then you are in for a treat. The Summer Set claimed the alt-pop throne with the release of Legendary, and this song is one of the …

Little Dragon Paris

Stream Little Dragon’s New Single, “Paris”

In a little over a month, Little Dragon will be putting out Nabuma Rubberband, their first album in three years. The follow-up to 2011′s nearly perfect Ritual Union is shaping up to be quite a release, as heard by lead single “Klapp Klapp” and now “Paris.”

BBC Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe put up a radio play of the song for fans to stream, and it gives us a peek at the groovy, electro-soul “Paris.” Frontwoman Yukimi Nagano will no doubt rock the song live with some great moves that it inevitably inspires. We’ll have to …

Sledding With Tigers Stream “The Devil And A California Burrito Are Raging Inside Me”

The countdown to the April 15 release of Sledding With Tigers‘ debut album continues today with the premiere of a new song titled “The Devil And A California Burrito Are Raging Inside Me.”

An obvious play on the Brand New album The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Me, the latest track to surface off Sledding With Tigers’ upcoming album is a short and bittersweet tale of realizing just how minuscule one’s problems are in the grand scheme of existence. You may feel down on yourself for a plethora of reasons, but if you step back and look …
