Justin Townes Earle – Kids In The Street (album review)

2 days agoMusic / Indie Music : HearYa

Photo Credit: Joshua Black Wilkens Justin is an interesting guy to follow on social media. I’ve witnessed him fall off the wagon, bemoan the over-building in Nashville and celebrate the World Series title of his beloved Cubbies. Over the last year, it has been nice to hear him embracing married life, await the birth of [...]

Rihanna, Lupita Nyong’o Will Co-Star In A Movie Inspired By A Tweet

Just last month, a photo of Rihanna and Lupita Nyong'o sitting next to each other at a 2014 fashion show made the rounds accompanied by a bunch of jokes about the two of them starring in a buddy comedy movie together. Slowly, the pieces fell into place to make that dream a reality. Lupita responded,…

Q&A: EDM Godfather Paul Oakenfold On Playing Mt. Everest And The State Of Electronic Music In 2017

Arguably the progenitor of EDM music and culture, DJ/producer Paul Oakenfold has no qualms about the hyper-colored, mainstream juggernaut he has spawned. In his 53rd year, Oakenfold is more interested in playing Mt. Everest then bemoaning a culture that has been co-opted by the likes of the Chainsmokers, flower crowns, and the disastrous Fyre Festival.

Watch Drake’s Adorable Meeting With Céline Dion

Both Drake and Céline Dion performed at last night's Billboard Music Awards, and they ran into each other backstage and exchanged some pleasantries. Well, Drake was more than pleasant, maybe even bordering on adorable, as he fawned over the fellow Canadian musician, calling her "very iconic" and saying "we love you" during their brief meeting.

Real Estate – “Stained Glass” Interactive Video

Earlier this year, Real Estate released a new album, In Mind, and today they've shared a video for early single "Stained Glass." It's based around a simple animation of the band members gracefully walking towards the camera and playing their instruments, but there's a fun component to it: There's an interactive website where you can…

What’s Going On With DJ Snake?

DJ Snake was on a roll, playing to big crowds at the Ultra and Coachella festivals and lining up more festival shows the rest of this summer, at Lollapalooza, Electric Zoo and Electric Forest. But on Sunday (5/21) he didn't make it to one of those major gigs, dropping off the lineup for the Hangout…

Spinee – “Distant Promise”

The latest entry in PC Music's Month Of Mayhem comes courtesy of Spinee, and it's the first track outside of mixes we've heard from the producer in quite a while. "Distant Promise" builds nicely on the frenzied apocalyptic pop music that has become Spinee's specialty over the past few years, and both sides of the…

American Football – “My Instincts Are The Enemy” Video

Reunited emo legends American Football came out with their self-titled sophomore album last year, and now they've followed up their oddly moving "I've Been Lost For So Long" video with another one for "My Instincts Are The Enemy." This one, as it happens, is just as oddly moving. The entire cast is either Japanese or…

Boxer Turns 10

Boxer is where the National became the National as we know them. People often talk that way about its predecessor, 2005's Alligator, the one where they figured themselves out after the warm-up sketches of their self-titled debut and Sad Songs For Dirty Lovers. And that isn't entirely untrue. Alligator was the album where people started…

Three Elton John Classics Get Fan-Made Official Videos

Elton John recently hosted a global competition to find directors to helm music videos for three of his classic songs -- "Rocket Man," "Tiny Dancer," and "Bennie And The Jets" -- that were released before music videos were popular and thus never had an official visual to go along with them. Earlier this year, a…

MØ – “Nights With You” Video

Last month, the Danish pop star MØ released "Nights With You," a new single that features production from MØ's "9 (After Coachella)" collaborators Cashmere Cat and SOPHIE, as well as from Benny Blanco. Today, she shares its video, which she filmed in Sofia, Bulgaria with director Bouha Kazmi. In the clip, we see MØ and…

Yaeji – “Passionfruit” (Drake Cover)

Yaeji -- AKA ultra-talented Korean-American producer Kathy Lee -- just released her self-titled debut EP on Godmode. We posted her videos for EP highlights "Noonside" and "Feel It Out," and today she's back with something slightly more familiar: a reworking of Drake's More Life standout "Passionfruit" that transforms its understated house vibes from drowsy to…

Yaeji – Passionfruit

Yaeji continues her breakout 2017 with this beautifully wistful and dreamy version of Drake's "Passionfruit", recorded this past weekend while she was out in LA for her first Boiler Room set. Listen below + download a free.wav of the track here: Continue reading…

New Music To Delight Your Ears- Data Fury

Data Fury From: Bergshamra, Sweden Without google translate I'd struggle to understand what År Noll (Zero) from mysterious Swedish band Data Fury is about. However music is a universal language and despite my lack of comprehension I like it, a lot. Show More Summary

Code Orange – “Bleeding In The Blur” Video

Back in the early days of 2017, the Pittsburgh hardcore band Code Orange released their ambitious, impressive album Forever. And as The FADER points out, they've just come out with a video for its hooky, melodic heavy-grunge song "Bleeding In The Blur." Director Max Moore films the band through funhouse-mirror lenses, as they rock out…

Nick Cave & Warren Ellis – “War Machine”

Nick Cave and his Bad Seeds/Grinderman bandmate Warren Ellis composed the score for War Machine, an upcoming movie that'll debut on Netflix this Friday (5/26) and stars Brad Pitt, Tilda Swinton, Topher Grace, and more. The soundtrack for the film will be released on the same day, and today you can hear a selection from…

DJ Khaled Calls Ousted Sony Exec L.A. Reid “An Amazing Person”

Earlier this month, L.A. Reid was ousted as the chairman and CEO of Epic Records amid rumored sexual harassment claims, which select executives at Epic reportedly covered up. But DJ Khaled, one of Reid's discoveries and protégés, has come to his defense. The Snapchat artist told the Associated Press that Reid is "an amazing person."

Gotcha Covered: “Running Up That Hill”

Kate Bush occupies this odd Trans-Atlantic space between cult figure and pop star. It makes sense that she's had a long, varied, widely analyzed, and deeply studied career, and it also makes sense that she found an ideal space in the Top Of The Pops/MTV '80s to amplify her own singular voice with a visual…
