Watch: “Raging Fire” by Phillip Phillips

10 Apr

American Idol champion, Phillip Phillips, has a new single circulating.  It’s called “Raging Fire”.  Off his upcoming untitled 2nd LP.  Mr. Phillips literally turns himself into a flame with the help of some street artists.  The end of which reminds me of Goyte & Dawson.

The track rises.

Stream: “River Bank” by Brad Paisley

8 Apr

We’ve moved out of the ‘Wheelhouse’.  Brad Paisley has now got us travelling down the “River Bank”.  A twangy new country tune to play during your respective Spring Breaks, Summertime, & outdoor parties.

The Paisley mascot is the star of the tracks new, fun loving, lyric video.  Not sure where the track will end up.  More words later…

Stream: “Why I Wait” by Kitten

8 Apr

This Kitten is turning into a full on Lioness.  The former hardworking LA underground namestake has grown incredibly since I first saw her at the Bootleg Theatre back in 2012.

Now a blogging staple, Kitten are currently on the road to their self-titled debut LP (Out in June!).  “Why I Wait” is a trance-y pop single that shows the incredible evolution of the band. Just imagine Chloe Chaidez whispering the lyrics in your ear.  Enough to make you pur.

Watch: “Smooth Sailing” By Queens of the Stone Age

8 Apr

Prepare yourself for one crazy night to the tune of “Smooth Sailing” by QOTSA.  Joshua & his band of drunken friends cause a ruckus around town in the new video.  Everything works splendidly.  Makes for a hell of a video.

‘…Like Clockwork’ is available now!

Stream: “I Won” by Future (feat. Kanye West)

8 Apr

Talk about a song for a Trophy wife.  Future joins up Yeezus for his new single.  It’s okay.  A bit too romantic for my taste.

Mr. West doesn’t hold back speaking directly to Kim.  The best line is when he applauds Kris Jenner for making a whole generation of trophy wives.  So true.

Stream: “When The People Cheer” by The Roots

8 Apr

Tariq, Quest, and the rest of the Roots are ready to step out from behind The Tonight Show viral videos & back to the urban airwaves.

“When The People Cheer”, which they do every night, is realness you come to expect from the legendary Roots crew.  Been ages since I heard them do what they best.  No ring rust.  Really missed it.

Luckily, there is more to come.  Their 11th studio album — ‘And Then You Shoot Your Cousin’ — drops soon!

the roots-when the people cheer-single cover-tonight show.

Stream: “Storyline” by Hunter Hayes

7 Apr

The title track from Hunter Hayes’ 2014 effort is a country pop beast.  To be expected.  A title is a title for a reason.  Regardless, this country is gonna blow up country radio.  Can’t wait to hear it with the windows down.

What you get in the package above is BTS photos of Hunter in the studio as the lyrics fly by.  Shakespeare be jealous of your love story…per Hunter.

Watch: “Play It Again” by Luke Bryan

7 Apr

Oh boy, I love this song.  So much.  Third verse especially.  “Play It Again” made sure that ‘Crash My Party’ ranked high on my fav album list for 2013.  Now, Luke Bryan jumped back to that LP to drop the official music video that features Luke rocking it out on tour with all those country hunnies.  Signing & asking to “Play It Again”.

Catch him at Stagecoach 2014 at the end of the month.  He doesn’t disappoint.

Unplugged: Future Islands @ KEXP

4 Apr

Second week & another shameless Future Islands plug.  This time our new favorite band hit up KEXP up in Seattle performing a four set unplugged set of their hits from 2014′s ‘Singles’.  More proof why this band needs to be your iPods & car stereos.

Have an amazing weekend!  We’ll be back tomorrow!

  • A Dream Of You And Me
  • A Song For Our Grandfathers

Stream: “Days In The East” by Drake

3 Apr

Deja Vu?  Naw.  Drake is feeling quite generous these past two days.  Check out…if you haven’t already…Drake’s brand new unreleased single — “Days in the East”.  Which I like more than “Draft Day”.  Same style as something from ‘Take Care’.  More realness from Mr. OVO now bringing that XO.
