STREAM: Violent Femmes’ New Single “Love Love Love Love Love”

15 Years: That’s how long Violent Femmes fans have been waiting for new material. This week the fans got what they wanted when the band released a new single titled “Love Love Love Love Love” on Soundcloud. The song strays from their acoustic-punk origins, with a slower paced Burbon Street-esque folk-blues style, yet it still carries the same amount of passion that they’ve had for 35 years, with Gordon Gano’s nasaly/angsty vocals and Brian Ritchie’s strong and distinct bass-lines. The song is the lead single off of their new EP, which…

WATCH: Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud” Music Video

Ed Sheeran released the music video for the third single of X, “Thinking Out Loud” today. The music video is sensual and romantic. It’s very simplistic,consisting of just him and a girl dancing in a ballroom. He cheekily writes on Twitter, “I’ve learnt to dance…” This is fairly evident given the grace of the video. With so many music videos, these days, having complicated story lines and many different scenes, “Thinking Out Loud” stands out with it’s simplistic nature. Watch the music video after the jump and let us know what…

ALBUM REVIEW: Adam Reczek ‘In the Night, For The Morning’

When you start listening to Andover, Massachusetts native Adam Reczek’s newest album In the Night, for the Morning, there will be something about his music that you’ll absolutely love… but you just won’t be able to put your finger on what it is exactly that keeps you listening. It might be his vocals that are at times wonderfully deep, or possibly the guitar twangs that embody the “folk” genre alongside magnificent electric guitar solos, reminding listeners that “rock” is also part of his sound. Or maybe it’s the overall retro…

Musicians You Didn’t Know Could Act & Vice Versa

These days in the entertainment industry, it is amongst many celebrity’s tactics to become a double or triple threat – to be an actor, singer, and, if they’re capable, a dancer – to essentially (as I would say) take over the world. Many have already managed to do so, making the crossover from either side in equal amounts, and some surprisingly successful in doing so. From many well-known hybrid entertainers to others you never would have guessed, here are a handful of musically-inclined actors and acting-inclined musicians that will give…

The Cellophane Flowers ‘Staring At The World’ Album Review

You know those really great, almost timeless, female fronted bands that seem to grab your attention no matter the circumstances? If you know what I’m talking about you may want to consider adding another band to your list of go-to’s. The Cellophane Flowers, out of the U.K., are a fresh brand of pop hooks and upbeat choruses. Coupled with the vocal stylings of Francesca Corradini they shoot way past the proposed mark and lead the listener into a broad landscape of very different and original ideas. Each song is fueled…
