Well, this is a nice crossing of paths. I’ve been anxious to see The Almost live since their killer new song streamed. Today, after hinting at it previously over the weekend, they have been announced as the main support for Finch on their American tour dates. While the bands aren’t exactly in the same style, this should be a pretty awesome tour to see. Finch’s full announcement said, “We are happy to announce that THE ALMOST will be the main support band for ALL midwest/east coast dates! Should make for a good night!” Thus, I suppose it …

Last night, recently reunited post-hardcore band Finch announced the openers for the California leg of their tour. The openers for their full tour are still unknown at this point; nonetheless, some of these opening acts make a lot of sense, and I anxiously await to see them. They are as follows:
February 1: Late Night Revival, Weatherbox
February 2: Hancox, Particles Like Planets
February 8: Just Eleanor, XO
February 9: Reverend Crow, Fluf
It should be noted that at least three of these bands have a connection to Finch: Randy Strohmeyer, guitarist for Finch, at least used to be the …
Jeff Turner has been a busy man. The act he’s probably best known for, Say Anything, has recently lost the only drummer it ever had in Coby Linders, and the band he’s one of the main songwriters for, XO, is now signed to Equal Vision Records through Max Bemis’ imprint, Rory Records. For New Years, he released a solo recording of him covering the Daniel Johnston song “Do You Really Love Me”.
Say Anything front man Max Bemis started his own imprint of Equal Vision Records called Rory Records last year. The only band he had signed at the time was Tallhart, but they have since signed Merriment! and now XO. XO may be known as a side-project to some people, as its primary band members are Jeff and Jake Turner, both musicians already in Say Anything; despite this, there’s reason to think this the Turner’s primary project with Max handling most of the writing in Say Anything.
On the signing, Bemis said “Though it seems obvious for …
Canadian crooner Abel Tesfaye makes panties wet. They soak and get heavy, then they drop. It only takes his voice to accomplish the feat but in his new track, Tesfaye explains how he aims to make bodies shake without a word.
“Enemy” will not be featured on The Weeknd’s Universal Republic debut, Trilogy, so this is just a treat from Tesfaye to get you in the mood. It works for us. Does it work for you? Listen to “Enemy” after the jump and let us know if you’re still shaking.
Canada’s The Weeknd has gone major.
Even though his name is still fresh on the lips of most music fans, The Weeknd has dominated the blogosphere over the better part of the last two years. His crooning goes into sonic territory that is still largely unexplored by mainstream artists, and this deal could lead to big things for a whole realm of great, soulful artists on the rise. His first release will be Trilogy, a compilation of his previous three mixtapes with new material included for longtime supporters. Fan favorite “Wicked Games” will be the lead single, and sources …
DJ Drama has released the visuals for his latest star-studded single, “My Moment.”
Taken from his forthcoming album Quality Street Music, “My Moment” is a surprisingly heartfelt track backed by a wall of high-gloss hip hop production. The video was filmed during OVO Fest in Toronto last month, and features the normal array of shiny things and performance shots. You can view the clip below.
Of all the voices on this beat, 2 Chainz is the one who stands out, but I think everyone delivers something extra special. Who do you think steals the show? Comment below and let …
I guess I passed out a bit too early last night because I definitely missed this. Following Spring’s House Of Balloons mixtape, The Weeknd has returned to give fans another dose of woeful RnB with his Thursday mixtape.
Those interested in downloading the album, which is said to be the second installment in a three-part mixtape series, can find a link on The Weeknd’s official website. If for some reason the site is down, click here for an alternate link.
