Ed Sheeran‘s newest video for the single, “Thinking Out Loud” is quite the surprise! Who knew he had it in him to dance the night away like that. Ed reportedly had professional dancers come in to train him just so he could get the routine down perfect. The hard work sure paid off! Beautiful song (not surprising), but I just can’t take my eyes off him in this video. Check it out above!
Holy smoke, Batman! The Piano Guys have made their own arrangement of the “Batman Theme” by Neal Hefti (1966), “The Batman Theme” by Danny Elfman (1989), and “Like a Dog Chasing Cars” by Hans Zimmer (2008). The “Batman Evolution” music video is brilliant with each theme showing the respective Batmobile. This is worth listening to and watching, so have a look for yourself above. Their new album, Wonder will be available on October 7, 2014.
SonicAluzion (A-Side) EP

Canadian band, Smashing Satellites just released their debut EP, SonicAluzion (A-Side). and it is all kinds of awesome. I was first impressed with Smashing Satellites after watching their music video for “Hounds“, which I found to be so exciting and fun because of its strangeness. The coolest aspect of Smashing Satellites is that their music transcends genres. While most would categorize them strictly as alternative, there are also hints of pop-rock and electro that really make them stand apart. Not only are their visuals (see the EP cover above and the music video for “Hounds”) creative, but it is also shows in their music.
The EP is a roller coaster of emotions starting off with a bang with “Waterfall” and then goes to a more serious tone with “Taste of Fame” before bringing things back to solid ground with, “Hounds.” Each and every song on the EP is so descriptive and intense. At times the lyrics are angst filled, but yet they still manage to give an overwhelming feeling of empowerment. Smashing Satellites knew what they were doing in order to make a debut EP that would grab the attention of listeners.
Full track listing: “Waterfall”, “Like A Feather”, “Calm Me Down”, “Taste Of Fame” and “Hounds.”
You can download the EP now via iTunes.
Oh my, Colin Firth still has it! His character has certain attributes similar to John Steed played by Ralph Fiennes in the 1998 movie, The Avengers. But Kingsman looks even better with Michael Caine and Samuel L. Jackson on board and let’s not forget it is directed by Matthew Vaughn (X-Men: First Class, Kick-Ass).
If you are a sucker for spy/action movies and/or Colin Firth, you will want to watch this. The trailer has made the rounds around the net and some have been bagging on the special effects. Just an FYI, this film is going to be released on February 13, 2015 meaning the special effects will be cleaned up by then. Give it a chance and have a look-see at the trailer. If not for that, then watch to hear the new Iggy Azalea and Ellie Goulding collab.

Imagine Dragons released a new track called “Warriors” that they recorded for their favorite video game, League of Legends. It is EVERYTHING that we love about Imagine Dragons: powerful and intense. If this is what we get to look forward to from their forthcoming album, which they are currently working on, then I am extremely stoked. What’s even better is the song is currently available as a free download on the League of Legends website.
