THIS JUST IN: “Under The Pressure” Music Video // The War On Drugs

THIS JUST IN: “Under The Pressure” Music Video // The War On Drugs @warondrugsjams

Flickering filters, abandoned landscape, prolonged guitar riffs all play vital roles in this dreamy, long form music video for The War On Drug’s latest track, “Under the Pressure.” This tune fits the theme of their album (“Lost In The Dream”) like a glove. Each band member is playing in solitude while the camera closes in and zooms…

HAIM - My Song 5 ft. A$AP Ferg

Can’t we all just be a Haim sister?

The unfailingly badass sisters have released a music video for their bass driven mega-tune, “My Song 5.” The video, which seems to parody shows like Jerry Springer, features cameos from Ezra Koenig of Vampire Weekend, A$AP Ferg, Big Sean, Grimes, Ke$ha, and SNL‘s Vanessa Bayer. The three sisters act, sing, and dance in the video, as they always do, but this one is definitely my favorite yet. Check it out.

This Just In: bad_news // Bastille

Wednesday afternoon the British boys behind last year’s megahit Pompeii – as well as other beauties such as Flaws and Bad Blood– debuted a new single from their upcoming Oblivion EP via BBC Radio 1 titled “bad_news.” Today the band uploaded the audio to youtube and the response has been overwhelmingly positive. Seems like everyone is in agreement that while it’s different from the sound found on…

GIG REVIEW: ASTR IN NYC

GIG REVIEW: @ASTRtv IN NYC

DSC06943

After speaking to ASTR in Februaryover the phone, I was always in the wrong place whenever they came around for a gig. But finally, I caught them when they played a gig as a special guest for Apple’s Speaker Series after they did a brief Q&A session. Leading lady Zoe and producer extraordinaire Adam talked gigs, recording, and hobbies, but my favorite part of that Q&A was probably when the duo…

GIG REVIEW: MAGIC MAN AT MADISON SQUARE GARDEN THEATER

GIG REVIEW: @MAGICMAN AT MADISON SQUARE GARDEN THEATER

Triumphant synth is the genre, Magic Man is the band. But what really is triumphant synth, and how would this translate live?

Magic Man aren’t like your typical opening acts–it’s genuinely a rarity to see fans wearing the opener’s merchandise and singing along to the songs at a show. But all this happened when the Boston quintet opened for Panic! At The Disco at MSG Theatre (MM are on The…

Sam Smith has done it again, in just one day, the video for his new song “I’m Not The Only One” has already racked up over 375,000 views. In the music video of the new song off his latest EP, Smith sings in the background of a tragic love story between a husband and wife duo portrayed by Chris Messina (whom I absolutely adore in “The Mindy Project”) and the beautiful Diana Agron (of “Glee” fame).

The solemn but perfectly melodic song beautifully matched the plot and the actors were beyond fantastic, which elevated the track to a whole other dimension. See what all the fuss is about yourself!
