Quavo (Migos) Responds To Recent Robbery With “Tha Truth”

A week after being assaulted and robbed following a performance outside our nation’s capital, Migos member Quavo has released a song he hopes will reach those responsible.

Here’s what we know to be fact: Last week, Quavo and the rest of Migos were performing in Washington D.C. At the end of the night, Migos were leaving the club when they were approached by people claiming to be associated with rapper Fat Trel. Mayhem soon ensued, and in the midst of the chaos someone snatched Quavo’s gold chain. This information eventually made it to rap blogs, and over the last …

Manchester Orchestra Release Breathtaking Music Video For “The Ocean”

Manchester Orchestra have released two great versions of their latest material in the aggressive COPE and the more elegant, stripped-down HOPE in the same year. That is definitely an epic achievement given the band’s ongoing touring schedule to further promote the releases.

A music video for the piano-driven HOPE version of “The Ocean” was released today, premiering on Team Coco. The video depicts world record holder deep sea diver William Trubridge swimming throughout the depths of the ocean with directors kitty + frido capturing every moment.

ALBUM STREAM: She & Him ‘Classics’

Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward, otherwise known as She & Him, have returned with their unprecedented brand of unfiltered and unabridged stripped-down pop with the release of their new record, Classics.

Prawn Share New Single, “Built For”

New Jersey is bringing emo rock back, and Prawn are riding at the front of it. The group dropped their sophomore LP, Kingfisher, earlier this year, but had to cut the 12-song tracklist down due to vinyl limitations. On Record Store Day’s Black Friday event on November 28, the band will share the two songs they had to cut.

The tracks will surface on a new EP, titled Settledvia Topshelf Records, of which the title track has already surfaced. The first of the cut songs is “Built For.” It dabbles in the warmth of ’90s emo …

Made In Heights Stream Affecting New Single, “Panther”

West Coast “beauty slap” duo, Made In Heights, never keep fans waiting for too long before offering up new material. Following the release of “Ghosts” in September, Kelsey and Sabzi are back with one of their most solid efforts yet in “Panther.”

“Panther” is poignant and haunting with a hypnotic haze that’s nearly impossible to escape as Kelsey expresses a longing that’s all too familiar. There are gorgeous vocal layers and string elements that add a welcome elegance to the track. “Panther” serves as a perfect soundtrack for the season and furthers our anticipation for Made In …

First Aid Kit Release Perfect Cover of Simon & Garfunkel’s “America”

Two of the most beautiful musical minds currently creating have released an unsurprisingly gorgeous cover of one of the greatest songs ever recorded, by one of the most beloved duos of all time.

Simon & Garfunkel’s popular Bookends cut, “America,” seems an appropriate song choice–minus the young lovers aspect originally intended–given the Swedish sister duo’s current US tour outing. However, this is actually a track they’ve been playing live for some time now, just finally releasing a proper studio version for fans to enjoy. First Aid Kit don’t reinvent the 1968 release necessarily, but they certainly update it, making it …

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:

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 …
