Restorations LP3 2014

Restorations Stream New Single, “Tiny Prayers”

If “Separate Songs” didn’t convince you that Restorations’ LP3 will be an album to remember, then “Tiny Prayers” is officially here to get the job done.

Just as the band described in their single premiere and interview with Noisey earlier today, this new single appears to be a progression of the same punk/rock and roll sound that they’ve built their name off of. Or in the words of vocalist/guitarist Jon Loundon, the track is “Restorations on auto-pilot.” You don’t even need to dig into the instrumentals to hear it; from the gravelly tone of the verses, to the loud and …

Stars No One Is Lost Single

Stream Stars’ New Dance Single ‘No One Is Lost’

Canadian indie rock group Stars will put out their newest album, No One Is Lost, on October 14 via ATO Records. Today the band have shared the title track off that album to stream.

The single follows in line with what we previously knew, namely that the synthpop group recorded the album in a studio one floor above a discotheque. “No One Is Lost” is much more chipper and celebratory than previous single “From The Night.” We’re betting it’s thanks to that catchy chorus.

Lorde Streams New Single “Yellow Flicker Beat”

Lorde has delivered on the promise that she would share her contribution to The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 this week, and yes, it’s pretty much perfect.

“Yellow Flicker Beat” is a song drenched in romance and vengeance, with Lorde riding larger than life production to dizzying heights and back again. “I’m a princess cut from marble,” she sings in the opening lines, “smoother than a storm / And the scars that mark my body / they’re silver and gold.” It’s not exactly a great departure from the material that made Pure Heroine one of the biggest releases of …

Steal My Song: One Direction’s New Single Sounds A Lot Like A Classic New Found Glory Song

One Direction have spent the last several months touring the world in support of their 2013 effort, Midnight Memories. The group somehow found time amidst all their travels to record a new record, which is scheduled to hit stores in November, and earlier today the album’s first single found its way online. The only problem is – I swear I have heard (at least part of it) before.

Let’s rewind. New Found Glory switched gears in 2006 and released a laid back record known as Come Home. It’s an album that sounds unlike any other record from the …

Young Thug [Finally] Releases “Danny Glover” Music Video

Atlanta native Young Thug has finally released the official video for “Danny Glover,” a song that originally found its way online at the beginning of 2014.

You could make the argument that Young Thug rose to fame throughout 2013, but I think it makes more sense to contribute the genre takeover of Thugga Thugga to everything the up and coming emcee has delivered in 2014. There were a few hit singles last year, including “2 Cups Stuffed” and “Stoner,” but when “Danny Glover” hit it became clear that Young Thug was more than a flash in the pan …

Azealia Banks 2012

Azealia Banks Shares New Song “Chasing Time”

Last we heard from Harlem rapper Azealia Banks, she had dropped a music video for her new single “Heavy Metal and Reflective.” Now the buzz girl has shared a new song called “Chasing Time” and we may not be able to listen to anything else all day.

“Chasing Time” sees Banks laying down a dreamy swirl of smooth production and quick, rounded raps. It seems ever since she cut herself from Interscope, Banks is shaping her extremely delayed album, Broke With Expensive Taste, exactly how she wants to. If she wanted to prove she’s more than …

SINGLE REVIEW: Kendrick Lamar – “i”

Artist: Kendrick Lamar
Song: “i”
Album: TBA

Nearly two years after the release of his breakout debut album, Kendrick Lamar returned to music headlines this week with the release of a brand new single titled “i.” The Rahki produced track, which also serves as the first song to be released from Kendrick’s upcoming Sophomore effort, samples “That Lady” by The Isley Brothers. We wrote about the song a bit when it debuted, but in case you missed that post you can discover the track below:…

Weezer 2014

Required Listening: Weezer – “The British Are Coming”

Weezer have shared another song off their highly-anticipated new studio album, Everything Will Be Alright In The End.

There is no question whether or not Weezer fans will buy the group’s upcoming new album. The only question that remains at this point is how well the record will be received by those who have supported the band over the last two decades. The first two singles, “Back To The Shack” and “Cleopatra,” told us the fun-loving band we have all loved for years are still as hip as ever, but it’s their latest release that …

All The Cool Kids Are Falling With Tove Lo’s “Thousand Miles”

Swedish pop star Tove Lo is ramping up promotion for the September 30 release of her debut album by sharing a new song titled “Thousand Miles.”

Tove Lo has always promoted herself as an honest pop artist. Where many singers and songwriters attempt to find mainstream appeal with stories that everyone can relate to, Tove Lo chooses to use her own experiences to fuel the writing that goes into her songs. When you hear of someone having their heart broken, you know it’s either Tove Lo or someone she dated. It’s real, and in my opinion that is what makes …

You + Me 2014

P!nk, Dallas Green Unveil Second Single Off Collaborative Album, ‘Rose Ave.’

Yesterday afternoon, Alecia Moore (P!nk) and Dallas Green (City and Colour) joined forces yet again to premiere a new single, “Break the Cycle,” through HuffPost Entertainment. It is the second glimpse we’ve received of the duo’s debut collaborative effort, Rose Ave., and can be streamed in full after the break.

Slightly more grandiose than the outfit’s initial outing, “You and Me,” “Break the Cycle” is a moving track that, like its predecessor, seems fated for repeat listens. Written for P!nk’s mother, listeners are immediately carried away on a breathtaking wave of strings, …

Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness Stream “Canyon Moon”

The self-titled album release from Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness is right around the corner, and earlier today fans received another taste of the record when the song “Canyon Moon” found its way online.

At this point it seems hard to believe anyone reading this is unfamiliar with the sound and style presented by Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness. It’s not a great departure from McMahon‘s earlier work, but their is a sense of grown up perspective running throughout the songs released so far that adds a nice twist of maturity to the whole affair. Andrew is not the …

Flying Lotus You're Dead!

Flying Lotus Shares New Song “Coronus, The Terminator”

Producer, electronic musician, and general genius Flying Lotus drops his highly-anticipated new album, You’re Dead!, via Warp Records on October 7. It’s a massive 19-track release that is following up 2012′s brilliant Until The Quiet Comes with a more jazz-oriented setup and guest star studded flair. In anticipation of the release, he’s shared single “Coronus, The Terminator.”

Unlike the rhythmic flurry of “Moment of Hesitation” and the edgy point of Kendrick Lamar collab “Never Catch Me,” this song strolls down the psychedelic route with a leisurely yawn. Things begin to get dark at one point, …
