azealia banks broke with expensive taste

Azealia Banks ‘Broke With Expensive Taste’ – Album Review

Azealia Banks is one odd duck.  But the eccentric rapper is so unpredictably out the box that her debut album (finally!), Broke with Expensive Taste, is a breath of incredibly fresh air. After all the tweeter beefs Azealia launched in her career (Angel Haze, T.I.), fans wondered if she could even put out an album! But in the tradition of Beyoncé, Azealia surprise-released the album online without promotion (on her […]

extreme more than words

Rock Rewind: Extreme “More Than Words”

Occasionally (and ironically), a band’s best-known song turns out to be the song that was the greatest departure from that band’s style. “More Than Words,” the acoustic ballad by funk-metal band Extreme, is a perfect example. Extreme first emerged as a “supergroup” in 1985, with all four members coming together out of previous bands playing in Boston’s rock scene. As they built a solid local following, they eventually landed a […]

‘7/11’ Video Promotes ‘Beyoncé’ Platinum Edition

Beyoncé is teasing us with a new song from the re-release of what history may show to be the greatest surprise release of all time—2013′s self-titled album Beyoncé.  In the new Platinum Edition box set, the “visual album” will feature the entire original track list, footage of live performances from the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, remixes, and even a couple of new songs.  “7/11” is one of those newbies, and Beyoncé‘s going […]

julio bashmore

Introducing: Julio Bashmore

Bedroom producer-turned-house revival figurehead Julio Bashmore certainly possesses the ability to wrongfoot audiences. Born Matthew Walker, the shy ginger-haired pasty kid gave himself a new moniker to make clubs think they were instead booking a tall dark handsome Latino man, while his constant switching to various labels renowned for their tech house has only added to the confusion. The 25-year-old might be fond of the odd curveball – recent track […]

Eminem’s ‘Detroit vs Everybody’

And they’re off! Eminem’s “Detroit vs Everybody,” third single off his compilation album, Shady XV, just jumped out the block. Over Statik Selektah’s menacing piano and rock guitar beat,Detroit rappers sprint (or spit) like a 400 meter relay race. And it looks promising… Eminem’s “Detroit vs Everybody” Coming out the gate first is Royce Da 5’9 (off Shady Records), who comes with clever wordplay and serious disses.  Check this: “Range […]

Knife Party ‘Abandon Ship’ – Album Review

Initially conceived as a side-project by Pendulum’s Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen before becoming a full-time concern in the wake of the drum ‘n’ bass outfit’s 2012 split, Knife Party now showcase their playful side on their full-length debut album, Abandon Ship. Indeed, the twelve-track affair, which was leaked onto iTunes by mistake two weeks before its scheduled release date, proves that at least a certain section of the EDM […]

MIMO Talks With the Pros: Shea Fowler, Cornman Music

The business side of the music industry is just as important (and in the eyes of many, just as exciting) as the creative side. At the very least, it’s critical for any artist wanting to make it in the industry to understand how the business side operates, not to mention understanding how people on the business side think. At this year’s Durango Songwriter’s Expo, MIMO had the chance to chat […]

george harrison got my mind set on you

Rock Rewind: George Harrison “Got My Mind Set On You”

In between his work with The Beatles and The Traveling Wilburys, George Harrison was also successful as a solo artist. In fact, he actually has three number-one solo hits to his credit in the U.S., more than any of the other ex-Beatles (including Paul McCartney, who’s still kind of a big deal). After sort of peaking in the 1970s with “My Sweet Lord” and “Give Me Love (Give Me Peace […]

iamamiwhoami ‘BLUE’ – Album Review

Beyoncé might have had the element of surprise, but long before Mrs Carter’s audiovisual experience gate-crashed the charts last year, a more enigmatic and tongue-twisting Swedish duo, iamamiwhoami, had already experimented with the format on two separate occasions. Of course, BLUE may initially attract attention for the array of striking National Geographic-style videos which perfectly complement its aquatic theme. But as with 2012’s kin and 2013’s Bounty, the pair’s latest […]

nas one mic

Flashback: All Nas Needed Was ‘One Mic’

“One Mic.” One of my favorite rap songs – which ricochets through Nas’ divided mind. The song is so Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde that it’s stirred my fascination for years. But first, how it all began. I recently discovered that the brilliant “One Mic” was actually jump-started by Nas’ younger brother, Jabari “Jungle” Jones. For once, one of hip-hop’s greatest lyricists was at a total loss for words. As […]

Royksopp ‘The Inevitable End’ – Album Review

In case you hadn’t already guessed by its title, The Inevitable End sees Svein Berge and Torbjorn Brundtland, aka Norway’s most successful electro export Royksopp, say their goodbyes to the traditional album format with their fifth and final studio effort. Considering the circumstances, it’s little surprise that their long-awaited follow-up to 2010’s Senior possesses an ever greater air of sadness than their previous melancholic brand of electro, a sound which […]

nicki minaj the pink print

Nicki’s Got ‘The Pinkprint’ To Create An Empire

The thing I like most about Nicki Minaj (besides her wildly colorful talent) is that at heart she is a straight-up business woman. She doesn’t want just a “Moment for Life”. She wants a legacy. She wants an empire. To that end, she is taking on the mostly male world of hip-hop and following in the footsteps of its resident king, Jay Z, to build a business (woman) and become […]

UPDATE: Murder-For-Hire Charge Dropped Against Phil Rudd

Within 24 hours of AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd’s widely publicized arrest in New Zealand on Thursday, the most serious of the charges was dropped, according to Stuff.co.nz. After appearing in court on a charge of “attempting to procure a murder,” for which he entered no plea—along with a series of drug charges stemming from cannabis and methamphetamine allegedly found in his home—Rudd was cleared of the murder-for-hire charge by New […]

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.

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 […]

Young Ones is the second feature film from writer and director Jake Paltrow. It’s a futuristic western with an amazing cast that looks absolutely spectacular.

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 […]
