1st Song of the Day: “Vegas” by Calvin Harris

8 Apr

Day 2 of Vegas Week kicks off with an classic Calvin Harris.  The track came out way before Mr. Harris hit the spotlight with “We Found Love”.  This is a EDM track for EDM lovers.  Bouncy.  Repetitive.  Bit of annoying. Keeps your body in motion for almost 6 minutes.  No lows.  All highs.  Way before perfection.  If you’re in Vegas, recommend bumping this anthem.  Make you look cool to the outsiders.  You can find Calvin at a nightclub around the city now & then.  Vegas is EDM’s second home in the US because Miami is the leader.  Everyone knows this..

New Music Tuesday brings you new albums from Black Label Society, Emmylou Harris, Patton Oswald’s Comedy Record, James Durbin, Eric Hutchinson, EMA, and many more,  Kind of a slow week for mainstream hits…but you should always try new things.  That you should.

Guess what?  Our first showcase review since February drops Thursday!  Petaped goodness.  Two more to go.  Until then…let’s keep dreaming of Vegas! Calvin press those buttons.

Watch: “Magic” by Coldplay

7 Apr

A Music Video you can call, “Magic”.  Ziyi Zhang stars as Chris Martin’s love interest in the black & white visuals about a budding relationship between a Magician & his assistant.  The track is even more haunting to the Coldplay tune.  Enjoy…Magic.

Watch: “Holding Onto Heaven” by Foxes

7 Apr

You’re invited to a party for Foxes.  It’s quirky & very Wes Anderson as they start a dance party in a colorful hall.  “Holding onto Heaven” is one of the standout tracks from the groups’ 2014 LP — ‘Glorious’ — which drops in May.  This is a track that deserves many remixes & bumps.  Makes the ladies jump onto the floor.

Watch: “Summer” by Calvin Harris

7 Apr

Life is a race in Calvin Harris’ new European visuals for his 2014 smash — “Summer”. Party with exotic models, watch dangerous drag races (with Jason Statham), and follow Calvin’s summertime happiness.  Seriously, the chicks (Eva Shaw) be baddddd.

Spotlight Saturday: ‘Never Fear Total Failure’ by Ghost Twins

5 Apr

Fun fact: Derby, England was the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution.  (At least according to Wikipedia)  It is also the home of industrial indie rockers, Ghost Twins.  Coincide that their musical stylings are ghostly tunes with that perfect combo of pop, rock, electronic house, and raw ambiance?  I think not.  It’s in their blood to revolutionize an oversaturated art form for a modern listener.

Last week the duo released their brand new 9 track LP entitled ‘Never Fear Total Failure’ early.  The official release date is next week.  But that hasn’t stopped me from listening. I’m gonna hold out for the vinyl.  It will be a dream playing off my needle.

I loved this record so much that it is the only thing we’re spotlighting today.  Really have no extra-fluffy words to describe each complex and intriguing cut that evolves with each passing second.  Like your trapped in a futuristic rubix cube hotel of endless hallways that switch every second.

All I can really say is that ‘NFTF’ is truly, truly, awesome.  You’re suckers for not clicking play…and then buying it over on Ghost Twins’ bandcamp.  Dig it below!

Watch: “I’m Not Part of Me” by Cloud Nothings

1 Apr

If you haven’t listened to Cloud Nothing’s ‘Here and Nowhere Else’ then you’re missing out on one of the hottest rock records of 2014.  Don’t believe me?  Experience the bountiful-colorful new visuals for their featured cut — “I’m Not Part of Me” that follows the actions of some young girls just having fun.

Watch: “Ragga Bomb” by Skrillex (Feat. Ragga Twins)

1 Apr

Watch yourself!  Ragga Bomb in the warzone. WOOB WOOB WOOB.

Skrillex’s ‘Recess’ has been a fun listening session inbetween the chaos that is my work life.  Chaos with Chaos.  Fitting.  Check out the new music video for the cut “Ragga Bomb” feat. the Ragga Twins in a futuristic Afro Dance “Bring it on!” sort of scheme…with Lightsabers!

Watch: “Tolerated” by Girl Talk & Freeway (feat. Waka Flocka Flame)

31 Mar

Nobody messes with Freeway as Girl Talk does take a beating in the duo’s new music video — “Tolerated”.  An original beat for the pirate Girl Talk, which is shocking to hear as a long time listener, as craziness ensues in the ultimate street fight.  Waka says his verse like a King while chewing on an arm.

Their ‘Broken Arms’ EP drops April 8th on datpiff.com for Free!  Recommend you pick it up when it drops.

Watch: “Kiss It” by DEV (feat. Sage The Gemini)

31 Mar

Reaping the ‘it’ rapper of the moment, foul mouthed DEV brings Sage The Gemini on her new ‘ass kissing’ new video for “Kiss It”.  The visuals are as tongue and cheek as they can be with Dev & Sage lounging around the house on a beautiful day.

Watch: “I Wanna Get Better” by Bleachers

27 Mar

Fun.’s Jack Antonoff has spun off and built the new pop group, Bleachers, who are making a major splash over the past couple of weeks.  Yesterday they debuted visuals for their new single — “I Wanna Get Better”.  Jack plays a therapist, listening to a bunch of crazy people…mostly C Level stars you recognize from NBC TV programs.  On top of his own personal stuff.  Fun…
