Chris Squire, Yes Bassist, Passes Away at 67

Iconic bassist Chris Squire, who co-founded rock band Yes with former lead vocalist Jon Anderson in 1968, passed away over the weekend. He was 67. The band confirmed the news with a statement on their official Facebook page: “It’s with the heaviest of hearts and unbearable sadness that we must inform you of the passing of our dear friend and Yes co-founder, Chris Squire,” the statement read. “Chris peacefully passed […]

say lou lou

Introducing: Say Lou Lou

Out of all the glorious synth-pop acts to emerge from Scandinavia since the turn of the decade, twin sisters Miranda Anna and Elektra June Kilbey-Jansson, aka Say Lou Lou, possibly have the strongest musical pedigree. Their father, Steve Kilbey, was the frontman of Australian alt-rock giants The Church, (best-known for their 1988 US Top-40 hit “Under the Milky Way”), while their mother, Karin Jansson, was the guitarist in Swedish punk […]

Hudson Mohawke ‘Lantern’ – Album Review

Six years on from his debut album, Kanye West favorite, TNGHT co-founder and beatmaker extraordinaire Ross Birchard, aka Hudson Mohawke, finally returns to the solo fray with the intention of “making a classic” on his sophomore release, Lantern. The follow-up to 2009’s Butter doesn’t quite fulfil the Glaswegian’s rather lofty ambitions, but alongside recent releases from the likes of Rustie and Lockah, it’s another sign that the Scottish electronica scene […]

Morgan Page ‘DC To Light’ – Album Review

Vermont DJ/producer Morgan Page recently revealed to MTV that his fourth studio effort was recorded using electricity harnessed by solar panels at his home studio. This environmentally-friendly approach also appears to have extended to the album’s actual material, as DC To Light is little more than a recycling of the 34-year-old’s former glories. Indeed, despite an almost entirely new line-up of guest performers, including Britt Dailey and The Oddictions, Polina, […]

Giorgio Moroder ‘Déjà Vu’ – Album Review

Having recently come out of retirement to lend his golden touch to records by Daft Punk, Coldplay and Haim, Italian dance legend Giorgio Moroder continues his unlikely second wind with his first new studio album in three decades, Déjà Vu. In recruiting a whole host of contemporary chart stars, most of whom weren’t even born when the last album came out (i.e., 1985’s collaborative LP with Phil Oakey), the undisputed […]

Leftfield ‘Alternative Light Source’ – Album Review

Sixteen years after Rhythm and Stealth both cemented Leftfield as one of the UK’s greatest electronic duos and ultimately led to their demise, Neil Barnes attempts to prove that they’re just as remarkable a prospect as a one-man band with third album, Alternative Light Source. Indeed, co-founder Paul Daley, who at the turn of the century declared that he would never step foot on stage as part of Leftfield ever […]

major lazer peace is the mission

Major Lazer ‘Peace Is the Mission’ – Album Review

Renowned for their organised chaos, dancehall collective Major Lazer’s previous releases have been fast, furious and frenetic affairs with only one goal in mind – to get the party started. However, as evident by its name, their third studio effort, Peace Is the Mission, is an unexpectedly more calming, composed and harmonious example of their production talents. Clocking in at just over 32 minutes, the follow-up to 2013’s Free The […]

The June 2015 Dance/Electronica Playlist

A deep house duo’s official comeback, a talent show graduate’s foray into drum ‘n’ bass and a Great Gatsby-style makeover all appear in this month’s collab-heavy guide to the hottest dance/electronica tracks. Disclosure feat. Gregory Porter – “Holding On” Following on from buzz track “Bang That,” Disclosure make their proper return with the first official single from their eagerly-awaited follow-up to 2013’s Settle. Featuring the soulful tones of Grammy-winning jazz […]

jamie xx in colour

Jamie xx ‘In Colour’ – Album Review

One-third of Mercury Prize winners The xx, acclaimed producer Jamie xx now goes it alone for a solo debut album, In Colour, which as its title suggests, is a little brighter than the slightly gloomy alt-pop of his day job. The 26-year-old hasn’t entirely distanced himself from the trio that helped cement his status as one of his generation’s premier beatmakers. The multi-layered instrumentals “Obvs” and “The Rest Is Noise” […]

alesso forever

Alesso ‘Forever’ – Album Review

Despite being discovered by Swedish House Mafia’s Sebastian Ingrosso, 23-year-old DJ Alessandro Lindblad, aka Alesso, has lately made a considerable effort to tell everyone that his debut album, Forever, sounds nothing like the stadium-filling EDM of the now defunct supergroup. It’s not quite clear whether the 23-year-old has simply been trolling, or is just plain deluded, as with the exception of the melancholic string-soaked instrumental closer, “Immortale,” every single one […]

Hot Chip ‘Why Make Sense’ – Album Review

Following three years of numerous solo and side projects, electronic pop oddballs Hot Chip finally return to their day jobs for a sixth studio effort, Why Make Sense?, which thankfully proves they haven’t lost any of the endearing quirkiness during their time apart. An attempt to recapture the energy of their live performances, the follow-up to 2012’s In Our Hands is perhaps the most organic that the British six-piece have […]

real lies

Introducing: Real Lies

The Reebok classics. The Lacoste polo shirts. The visual references to the USA World Cup. It doesn’t exactly come as a surprise that the sound of London three-piece Real Lies is just as much as indebted to the early 90s as their image. Signed to Sweet Exile (the same Marathon Artists imprint that is home to similarly retro-minded acts Childhood and Jagwar Ma), Kev Kharas, Tom Watson and Pat King […]

galantis

Introducing: Galantis

It’s difficult to see any other new dance act arriving on the scene this year with as strong a hit-making pedigree as Swedish duo Galantis, a.k.a. super producers Christian Karlsson and Linus Eklow. As one-half of pop factory Bloodshy and Avant, the former (who is also one-third of indie-pop trio Miike Snow) has been at the center of numerous monster chart smashes by Britney Spears (including the Grammy-winning “Toxic”), while […]

zedd true colors

Zedd ‘True Colors’ – Album Review

A virtual unknown at the time of his 2012 debut, German-Russian producer Zedd has since won a Grammy Award, been invited to work his magic on records by Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande, and become an unlikely tabloid favorite thanks to his relationship with former Disney tween-queen Selena Gomez. Expectations, therefore, are much higher for his second album, True Colors. Adhering to the if-it-ain’t-broke-don’t-fix-it approach, the follow-up to Clarity follows […]

Bond 24 In Need Of A New ‘Iconic’ Henchman

Bond 24 is inching towards production. They have a script, they have a director and an established cast. What they don’t have is a cool new henchman, apparently. A casting call just went out for a man who is above 6’2”, age 30 – 45, and has a ‘ very unusual look’. What that means is they’re looking for someone who is taller than Bond, and has the capability to […]

Men, Women, and Children

Jason Reitman is one of those directors that you always need to keep an eye on. He’s always in the background, doing interesting things. While other directors with his level of clout would be attempting to direct Transformers 16, he’s out making interesting, character based pictures. His latest effort is entitled Men, Women, and Children. What’s it about? The intersection of technology and the human condition.

Jackie Chan Needs To See A Script For Rush Hour 4

In the endless deluge of sequels, reboots, preboots, and remakes I can honestly say I’ve never heard anyone say ‘Man, I wish there was another Rush Hour movie’. Well, apparently there are plans slowly rumbling to life. Somewhere there’s a studio executive who is attempting to breathe new life into the franchise. While promoting the Chinese Zodiac, Jackie Chan sat down with Jonathan Ross and answered some questions. One of […]

William H Macy is one of the few ‘that guy’ actors who has transcended character acting and become a household name. In films like Fargo, Magnolia, The Cooler and Mystery Men Macy has showcased his skills and verisimilitude at every turn. The man is an amazing talent. Well, now it looks like Macy is turning his skills to another aspect of filmmaking. Namely, being behind the camera.

The Revenge of the Green Dragons

Crime movies are released pretty regularly. They’re easy to make from a logistical point of view. They don’t require tons of special effects and high profile actors. But, let’s be honest, most of them aren’t earth shattering. They’re just not. Yeah, of course there are amazing crime films made. But let’s be real. They’re few and far between. Well, the godfather of crime films is executive producing a new one […]

How Winter Soldier Impacts Age of Ultron

The best thing about the Marvel Cinematic Universe is that the films talk to each other. Sometimes that manifests in the characters from one film literally showing up in another. Sometimes it’s just the characters talking about events in other films. It’s wonderful. Absolutely wonderful. It’s everything I wanted when I was ten years old watching Superman The Motion Picture. Well, now we’re hearing some interesting news about how Cap […]
