Pale Blue ‘The Past We Leave Behind’ – Album Review

Hot on the heels of Johnny Jewel’s score for Ryan Gosling’s much-maligned directorial debut, Lost River, New York producer Mike Simonetti (the other co-founder of Italo-disco label Italians Do It Better) returns to the fray under the guise of Pale Blue for his first album, The Past We Leave Behind. Named after the Pale Blue Dot term used to describe the photograph of Earth taken by the Voyager 1 space […]

AC/DC Drummer Phil Rudd Pleads Guilty to Murder Threats

It would appear that in the midst of their comeback tour, Aussie rock icons AC/DC are experiencing another personnel change. Remember last November when their drummer, Phil Rudd, was arrested in New Zealand on murder-for-hire charges, then the charges were dropped for lack of evidence? As is usually the case, that wasn’t all there was to the story. There were other charges to be addressed, including drug possession and threatening […]

blonde

Introducing: Blonde

Having become the toast of the deep house scene with a Justin Bieber-sampling affair recorded before they had even met, it’s fair to say that British duo Jacob Manson and Adam Englefield, aka Blonde, didn’t exactly have the most conventional of starts to their promising career. Inspired by artists as varied as Mount Kimbie, James Blake and Stevie Wonder, the Bristol-based pair’s partnership began in 2013 when fledgling producer Manson […]

Shlohmo ‘Dark Red’ – Album Review

Four years after his debut album Bad Vibes saw him hailed as the next Flying Lotus, Henry Laufer, aka Los Angeles producer Shlohmo, finally returns with his long-awaited follow-up, the suitably-titled Dark Red. Following remixes for Laura Mvula, Flume and Lianne La Havas, production work on Banks’ Goddess, and last year’s collaborative E.P. with R&B lothario Jeremih, the 25-year-old hasn’t been entirely missing in action, but there’s still a sense […]

Soul Singer Percy Sledge Dead at 74

We’ve all heard his signature voice singing his signature song. On April 14, soul singer Percy Sledge—best known for his 60s smash hit “When a Man Loves a Woman”—passed away in his home in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, after a battle with liver cancer. He was 74. His was the storybook tale of an artist being discovered. Growing up in Leighton, Alabama, Sledge grew up working in the cotton fields, then […]

clarence clarity

Introducing: Clarence Clarity

It’s difficult to determine what’s more positively deranged about the mysterious oddball known as Clarence Clarity: the mind-bending videos that could make even David Lynch flinch, or the twisted wall of sounds that appear to have been beamed in from another planet. “The Gospel Truth” is an unsettling blend of grinding synths and helium-pitched vocals accompanied by a promo in which three machine gun-branding skeletal figures lip-sync against a backdrop […]

madeon adventure

Madeon ‘Adventure’ – Album Review

Arriving four years after he went viral with his “Pop Culture” mash-up, debut album Adventure sees French whiz kid Hugo Pierre Leclercq, aka Madeon, turn his back on the EDM world that he was once tipped to rule. Inspired by his behind-the-scenes work with Lady Gaga, Ellie Goulding and Two Door Cinema Club, the 20-year-old largely abandons the maximalistic electro of his earlier output in favor of a more melodic […]

Brand New Unveil Brand New Song ‘Don’t Feel Anything’

It really says something about a rock band’s grass-roots popularity when they’ve all but gone off the grid for six years, with very little but rumors about a new album to go on, and when they play a new song at a show with no introduction, the fan video goes viral. This week, the Interwebs lit up when punk/alternative band Brand New gave concertgoers a foretaste of their long-anticipated upcoming fifth […]

The April 2015 Dance/Electronica Playlist

From two transatlantic all-star hook-ups to a long-awaited return from the youngest Minogue sister, here’s a look at five dance/electronica tracks you should look out for this month. Major Lazer feat. DJ Snake and MØ – “Lean On” Having served as producer on Madonna’s latest opus and hooked up with Skrillex on the Jack U LP, Diplo cements his status as the electro scene’s hardest worker by joining forces with […]

tei shi

Introducing: Tei Shi

Born in Buenos Aires, raised in Bogota and Vancouver, and now living in Brooklyn, the artist formerly known as Valerie Teicher, Tei Shi, is certainly the most well-travelled chanteuse to emerge from the burgeoning scene known as avant-garde R&B. The singer-songwriter, who also studied at Boston’s Berklee College of Music before settling in the Big Apple, is tipped to make a major breakthrough in 2015 following a year’s worth of blogosphere […]

the prodigy the day is my enemy

The Prodigy ‘The Day Is My Enemy’ – Album Review

The pioneers of the first EDM wave to hit America back in the mid-90s, anarchic trio The Prodigy certainly don’t appear too impressed by the second wave, judging by their sixth studio effort, The Day Is My Enemy. Self-described as an antidote to the “force-fed, commercial generic records” that have defined dance culture in their six-year absence, the much-delayed follow-up to Invaders Must Die also sees the Essex boys team […]

Rock Rewind: John Cougar (Mellencamp) “Jack & Diane”

First it was Johnny Cougar. Then just John Cougar. Then it was John Cougar Mellencamp. Then just John Mellencamp. Rarely has a musical artist gone through so many moniker changes over the course of a career (right up there with Sean Combs-Diddy-P Diddy-Puff Daddy). But regardless of the name changes, Mellencamp’s unique style of heartland rock has been a constant force, his songs evoking indelible images of the American Midwest. […]

Twin Shadow ‘Eclipse’ – Album Review

The first release since his move from cult indie label 4AD over to Warner Bros., Eclipse sees leather jacket-wearing hipster George Lewis Jr., aka Twin Shadow, further embrace his fondness for pomp and bluster on eleven tracks which practically beg to be belted out in front of a stadium crowd. Packed with super-sized echo-laden drums, chest-beating melodies and melodramatic tales of lost love, the follow-up to 2012’s Confess certainly isn’t […]

tuxedo

Tuxedo ‘Tuxedo’ – Album Review

An unlikely alliance between Grammy-nominated neo-soul crooner Mayer Hawthorne and Seattle boom-bap producer Jake One (50 Cent, G-Unit), the aptly-named Tuxedo couldn’t have timed the retro disco-funk of their self-titled debut album any better. Arriving just weeks after Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars propelled the sounds of The Gap Band, Steve Arrington and The Whispers back into the charts, these twelve unashamedly old-school tunes find the duo mining a virtually […]

Watch David Fincher’s New Gap Ads

David Fincher is one of the greatest living directors. He’s created masterpieces like Fight Club, Seven, and Zodiac. He also directed Alien 3. But that’s neither her, nor their. He’s a man who, with some regularity, creates some of our culture’s most talked about films. And on occasion he directs commercials. It’s a fairly common occurrence. Directors working in commercials allows them to make smaller films, with less risk, at […]

Donald Glover To Play Miles Morales in Ultimate Spider-man Cartoon

In 2010, the Amazing Spider-man was rumbling to life. People were saying that Sony was going to reboot the franchise and of course the topic of what actor could take over the role of Spider-man was an instant debate. One of the names the quickly became a source of heated discussion was Donald Glover.

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’s ‘Rudderless’ Looks Heartwarming

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 […]
