Two new albums are forthcoming from the Purple Yoda. Now, about that “Purple Rain” anniversary release…
Marvin Gaye was one of the many electrifying performers on the “Motown 25″ special, which is finally making its way to DVD.
No animals were harmed during the making of Guster’s new album–which you can support via PledgeMusic.
If you’re not hip to Kimbra’s work (independent of that damn Gotye song) yet, you need to familiarize yourself.
“Relations (An Ode To You & Me)”, the latest single off the highly anticipated next chapter of Kenna’s Land 2 Air Chronicles EP series sounds exactly like the description on the Soundcloud page: David Byrne meets Rick James! It’s a low-key little funk blast that sees Kenna doing his best Talking Heads/Byrne impression and succeeding. If this is an indication of the direction the next EP is going in then expect more ’80’s-inspired jams like this instead of the sonic [...]
What, Lady Gaga getting naked in a promotional video for some new agey mind and body exercise wasn’t enough for you? FINE. Here’s here new single, rushed to radio following a rash of leaks over the weekend. “Applause” is the first single from Gaga’s forthcoming ARTPOP album, due November 11th. “Applause” is unfortunately more of the same from Gaga, and could just as easily be a leftover from 2011’s enjoyable but tepid Born This Way. Like that LP, “Applause” is a competent but fairly by-the-numbers dance [...]
With riffage as technically proficient as Fear Factory and a melodic tone in the vein of Flaw, Canadian heavies Deathpoint is an amalgamation of extremes. With former Odium vocalist Tom Emmans now in tow for their forthcoming album, Deathpoint release the title track “Sinister” and show how much they’re continually growing. Emmans, especially, is a force behind the mic with a range that borders on death metal growls at times growing to a Maynard James Keenan-style croon and is easily [...]
Following the Muppets’ return to the big screen in 2011, the gang is setting out for another cinematic adventure. This one appears to have some international intrigue, and features headliners Tina Fey, Ricky Gervais, and Ty Burrell. 2011’s The Muppets brought the ragtag puppet troupe to a new generation; will Muppets Most Wanted maintain that momentum? Disney released a teaser today – let us know what you think! Muppets Most Wanted will be in theaters March 21, 2014. Muppets Most Wanted Teaser Trailer on Disney Video
Given the recent legal issues between the band that is now known as Vista Chino and Josh Homme, is it an insult to describe VC’s latest song, “Barcelonian”, off their upcoming Peace album as sounding like Queens of the Stone Age? Because it does. It’s that pure QOTSA that shared a split with Kyuss before their debut full-length. Comparisons aside, though, it’s awesome. Bruno Fevery definitely holds his own and it’s nice to see the young guitarist really let loose [...]
It’s been 17 years since Mazzy Star’s last full length LP, 1996’s Among My Swan. 2011 gave us the first new tracks from Hope Sandaval and the gang via the “Common Burn” / “Lay Myself Down” single, with news of an LP to be released in 2012. The promise of a new Mazzy Star LP was enticing given the length of the group’s absence, and doubly so based on the strength of “Common Burn” / “Lay Myself Down.” But the [...]
I’m doing this. I really am! This is Big Money’s deal but I’m taking over the “New Release Report” for a little while because, frankly, I miss it. But enough rambling, onto the new releases… We’re in the middle of July meaning…nothing is coming out. For the most part. First, there’s the solo outing from ex-Pantera/current Down frontman Phil Anselmo. I didn’t like it. A lot. You can go here to read why. On the other side of the spectrum (And [...]
