U2 Could Still Release New Album in 2014

Remember earlier this year when U2 was getting all that buzz about a new album release in the spring?  Remember when they won that Golden Globe for their song “Ordinary Love” from that Nelson Mandela biopic?  Remember when they released their song “Invisible” as a free download during the Superbowl and raised like a bajillion dollars for (RED)?  Remember their sparkling appearance during Jimmy Fallon’s debut broadcast as the new […]

La Roux “Trouble In Paradise” – Album Review

Five years after kickstarting the whole nu-synth movement with their icy take on early 80s electro-pop, La Roux finally return, albeit with one member down, for their long-awaited second album, Trouble In Paradise. As its title suggests, the follow-up to 2009’s eponymous debut hasn’t exactly been an easy ride. Lead vocalist Elly Jackson’s anxiety attacks regularly interrupted its recording while producer Ben Langmaid’s acrimonious departure, essentially reducing La Roux to […]

Beyoncé Leads MTV Video Music Award Nominations

Who is taking home a moon man this August?  It’s that time of year again when MTV takes over our living rooms and mobile devices with one of the liveliest awards shows in Tinseltown, the MTV Music Video Awards!  This year, Beyoncé leads the pack with eight straight nominations including the highly coveted Video of the Year for “Drunk In Love”.  She is also up for Best Female and Best […]

Bone Thugs to Say Farewell With Final, Million-Dollar Album

See you at the crossroads, so you won’t be lonely… Remember that heavenly rap video? Never has a group of thug rappers harmonized so sweetly about the grim reaper topic of death.  Ever since Layzie Bone, Krayzie Bone, Bizzy Bone, Flesh-N-Bone and Wish Bone (aka Bone Thugs n-Harmony) released their Grammy winning hit “Tha Crossroads” in the 90’s, there has never been a more melodic rap group to hit the stage.  Several albums […]

“Weird Al” Yankovic’s Big Week

This past week, the music news cycles have been dominated by one of music’s most unlikely candidates—namely, veteran popstar parodist “Weird Al” Yankovic. After a modest reception of his previous effort Alpocolypse in 2011, the jokester is actually aiming for his first No. 1 record ever with Mandatory Fun, which dropped this week. What’s different about this one?  Not much, really, as far as the content is concerned. It’s the […]

The Acid Liminal

The Acid “Liminal” – Album Review

Their name may suggest they’re the latest act to jump on the early 90s house bandwagon, but transatlantic supergroup The Acid – aka Aussie singer-songwriter RY X, Grammy nominated British producer Adam Freeland and Los Angeles Drake collaborator Steve Nalepa – in fact deal in the kind of fragmented post-dubstep more likely to soundtrack the early morning after than the heavy night before. Comparisons with the likes of Burial will […]

Rock Rewind: Johnny Cash “Hurt”

It might seem odd to feature a country singer in the Rock Rewind, but then again, Johnny Cash was “crossover” before crossover became a thing.  He’s always appealed to the counter-culture in some way, and when he released his cover of Nine Inch Nails’ “Hurt” in 2003, it was an indelible moment in music history that can’t be overlooked. Already in failing health while recording his American series of albums, […]

Indie Labels Call for Transparency with Fair Digital Deals Declaration

Today marks what will hopefully be a meaningful first step in restoring balance in the emerging digital music realm, to help indie musicians be more fairly compensated for their work.  Over 700 independent labels have united in support of the “Fair Digital Deals Declaration” sponsored by the Worldwide Independent Network (WIN), a document that calls for more transparency and fair treatment for musical artists in the distribution of revenue from […]

Jungle

Jungle “Jungle” – Album Review

Adding to the recent wave of acts shrouded in mystery, enigmatic retro-futuristic soul duo Jungle has had everyone speculating about their identity over the past twelve months, thanks to a series of inventive choreography-based promos which have handed over the spotlight to breakdancing six-year-olds and urban roller-skaters. The eventual reveal that the pair weren’t Daft Punk, Justice or any other French electro wizards, but in fact two former members of […]

Eminem

Eminem Is First Rapper To Make It To Wembley

Wembley Stadium, the second largest stadium in Europe, heralds the likes of Madonna, U2, Green Day, Bon Jovi, Coldplay, Rihanna, and George Michael (Wembley’s first musical act).  Not a rapper has graced this London venue… until now.  Eminem made history July 11th by headlining the first rap show in the magnificent 90,000 seat venue.  He brought out fellow history maker Dr. Dre (hip-hop’s first billionaire) and performed a medley of […]

The Roots Prove Execs Wrong With Emmy Nod For “The Tonight Show”

For the first time ever, a hip-hop band is the house band for one of the biggest late night institutions in history, NBC’s The Tonight Show.  That band, The Roots, adds a fresh home-grown appeal to Jimmy Fallon’s late-night talker, honestly making Jimmy more cool.  Because let’s face it, anything The Roots touches automatically becomes More Cool. The Roots are one of the most organic, quirky and unique musical acts […]

Tommy Ramone Passes Away, Age 62

In a manner of speaking, Friday marked the end of an era. Tommy Ramone, the last surviving original member of pioneer New York punk act The Ramones, died on Friday at the age of 62. He had been in hospice care after unsuccessful treatment for bile duct cancer. The news was confirmed late last night by a post on The Ramones’ official Facebook page: We are saddened to announce the […]

Rock Rewind: The Clash “Rock the Casbah”

Here’s another example of the many ironies of the music business: The Clash’s biggest hit, 1982’s “Rock the Casbah,” the song that put the British punk band on a worldwide stage, also marked the beginning of their demise. Part of the pioneering first wave of British punk in the mid-1970s, The Clash had spent the past six years building a solid reputation as stalwarts of the emerging punk scene wth […]

Matthewdavid in my world

Matthewdavid “In My World” – Album Review

Held together by a “unifying theme of love” inspired by his recent marriage and the birth of his first child, Matthewdavid’s second album, In My World, sees the Los Angeles producer abandon the “one long broken jam” approach of his 2011 debut, Outmind, and instead venture into the hipster movement known as PBR&B. Clocking in at just over the half-hour mark, one of the most succinct releases on Flying Lotus’ […]

Michael B Jordan has a lot to say about the currently filming Fantastic Four reboot. The film appears to be a slightly unconventional take on the four astronauts who gain powers through cosmic rays. Check out what Jordan has to say below. The first thing MTV asked about was the secrecy of the film’s set. Yeah, we have been pretty much in our own world, that’s really the only way […]

Universal Monsterverse Gains Chris Morgan

Earlier this year, it was reported that Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci were going to reboot the Universal films into a shared universe, just like the old Universal Monster movies. Well, a few months ago, Kurtzman and Orci had a creative split. The two long time collaborators when in different directions. Orci is directing Star Trek 3 and Kurtzman is writing half the franchise film under the sun. Well, there’s […]

Read About The Original Ending For ‘Dawn of the Planet of The Apes’

Slashfilm recently sat down with Dawn of the Planet of the Apes director Matt Reeves and an interesting tidbit came up. The ending that we’re seeing in theaters wasn’t the original ending of the film. PETER: I heard there was another ending to this movie that we’re not seeing. Is that coming out on the DVD and what is it? MATT: That won’t be on the DVD I don’t think, because […]

Ryan Reynolds Stars In ‘The Captive’

The growing consensus seems to be that Ryan Reynolds shouldn’t play serious roles. He’s best suited for comedic parts that he can really show off his impressive timing in. Well, hopefully that line of logic is about to change. After the film Buried was released it became increasingly apparent that Reynolds only needed a few solid vehicles to convince the greater populous of his abilities in serious and dramatic role. […]

Guillermo del Toro To Launch Pacific Rim Animated Series

Guillermo del Toro’s monster fighting epic Pacific Rim wasn’t the major smash here in the states that Legendary wanted it to be. But it did really well over seas. As such, Legendary and Guillermo are working on a follow up film, as well as an until recently secret project. An animated show based on the film. Guillermo recently sat down and gave some insight into the project. How far along […]

Is There A New Captain America?

Rick Remender’s run on Captain America has been a tad hit or miss, according to readers. Many have complained that the Dimension Z storyline went on for far too long. However, in a newly revealed twist, there will be a new character taking over the mantle of Captain America. Steve Rogers, now stripped of his super soldier serum, is taking on a different role in the book. Remender, the writer […]

Does Sharknado 2: The Second One Look Worse? Is That A Good Thing?

Remember Sharknado? Remember? No? Ok, we’ll catch you up. Sharknado was a minor blip on the pop culture radar around comic con last year. The outlandish title coupled with stunt casting and a heaping portion of internet chatter propelled the shark-sploitation film to higher heights than Asylum could  have ever hoped for. Now, only one year later, Asylum is about to release an aptly titled sequel. Sharknado 2: The Second […]

David Fincher’s Gone Girl Gets New Trailer

Gone Girl, the new film from David Fincher, looks to be a spooky and atmospheric thriller based around the potential innocence of a man accused of killing his wife. The film has themes similar to many of Fincher’s best works. We’ll see how the film ultimately pans out. Is is unfair of me to instantly see a Bond Girl and Batman running around on screen? Probably. Regardless, it’s a Fincher […]

Matt Reeves Sheds Light on Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Matt Reeves’ new film Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is just around the corner. And as such, he’s been giving numerous interviews about the creative process behind the film.

Matt Reeves opening up about the trials and tribulations of making Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is absolutely wonderful. It keeps […]
