Who We Like

Lion Babe

May we present, Lion Babe, the #2 Billboard and Twitter Emerging Artists of the week.

Rag’n’Bone Man

Sounds so soulful here…

All Time Low, “Kids in the Dark”

This one’s just over a week old. It’s not getting much YouTube lovin’ but that doesn’t mean it’s not enjoyable.


Classic Music Videos

Blur, “Coffee and TV”

Coffee and TV, the tale of an estranged milk cartoon searching for lead guitarist, Graham Coxon.

Steriogram, “Walkie Talkie Man”

I once heard this song as part of a video game’s soundtrack, never knew the video included so much yarn.



This past Monday, March 16th, iTunes suffered a case of the oops when they released Kendrick Lamar’s new album “To Pimp a Butterfly” one week before its scheduled March 23rd release date. Since Tuesday, iTunes has removed the album from the store and then replaced it again. In case you can’t gain access to it, listen your heart out right here with our Spotify embed.
