Diamond Youth Stream Debut LP, ‘Nothing Matters’

Baltimore’s Diamond Youth have joined forces with Spin Magazine to begin streaming their debut album, Nothing Matters, a full week ahead of its official release. Give it a listen after the jump.

“I think the full-length is a nice showcase of the different styles we like to write in the rock genre,” vocalist Justin Gilman recently told Inyourspeakers Media. “Some are more mellow and nostalgic, other songs are bangers, fast paced and grungier. We just like writing good, simple songs. That’s always what we have in mind when writing.”

Gilman isn’t kidding; the group’s newest offering is varied …

Ikey Reigns Supreme; All Hail King Jaffe, Hip-Hop’s New Highness

Apart from maybe Run The Jewels, the most exciting thing about hip-hop for me last year was Ikey. He only released a single track–a debut of sorts–but it was a perfectly chosen debut to serve as the gloves he came out swinging with. Initially elusive as all get out, the now-DC-based, mostly Nigerian-raised emcee seemingly had next to no online presence. As far as I can tell, he still doesn’t have a Facebook page, but that undoubtedly contributed to what made he and the ferociously calculated “Timbuktu” so damn enthralling. I listened to that track over …

New Anthem: Sudden Suspension Stream “As Good As It Gets”

Indiana pop punk heroes Sudden Suspension have released the first song off their forthcoming Bad Timings Records‘ debut. Spoiler alert: It kicks a lot of ass.

Kicking off with a blast of vocals sure to hook any fan of The Wonder Years or The Story So Far, “As Good As It Gets” succeeds at reintroducing the world to Sudden Suspension with style and flair. It’s the kind of song that plays like a punch to the chest, with talk of heartache and miles traveled, all told from the perspective of someone who is not yet twenty years old. I …

Sia’s “California Dreaming” Cover May Change Your Life

The song that has made every trailer for San Andreas 50% more enjoyable has now found its way online in full.

Sia is pretty much everywhere these days, and she will soon further permeate pop culture as her cover of The Mamas & The Papas’ “California Dreaming” is about to become the best damn thing you hear all week. The song is currently being used to promote a movie in which The Rock flies a helicopter and saves his family from an earthquake that takes place in — you guessed it — California. The song is probably better. You can …

Jamie XX & Young Thug Drop “I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times)”

On the long list of potential Young Thug collaborators maintained by music bloggers around the globe, I would wager less than 5% ever thought to include producer/DJ Jamie XX. The two artists are amongst the most talked about creative minds today, but given the undeniable differences in their signature sounds it is easy to understand why no one ever thought to put them together.

No one, that is, except for each other.

Today, Jamie XX shared a new song with the world titled “I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times)” that it’s more or less led by Atlanta native …

ALBUM STREAM: The Early November – ‘Imbue’

After months of anticipation, The Early November have begun streaming their fourth full-length record, Imbue. Give it a listen after the break, and share your thoughts with us in the comments section.

“This is my favorite album I’ve ever been a part of,” said frontman Ace Enders. “I think one of the reasons is that we did it at two separate times. So there is a definite difference in the personality of the songs. I love when an album doesn’t sound uniform and I think that’s what makes this one sound and feel so special to me.”
