Introducing singer-songwriter, Scarlett Rabe, a classically trained pianist with soulful vocals. Not only did she put on an amazing set, but she is also awesome to talk to. Scarlett talks to us in a bathroom (apparently it’s a thing) about who she goes to for advice, her dream collaborations, and her new single, “Battle Cry“. If you haven’t heard the incredible track, check it out below:
Ariana Grande‘s song, “Problem” is currently #1 on the UK charts and #3 on the US Charts and in appreciation of their friend’s song Rixton decided to cover it. I am not as crazy about the original as the rest of the world, but Rixton has made me love their version. They ommitted Iggy Azalea‘s rap and gave the song their own little twist. Do yourself a favor and listen to it now.
On October 10, 2014 we will be graced with the film, The Interview starring besties James Franco and Seth Rogen. The basis of the film is that the CIA recruits Dave Skylark (Franco) and Aaron Rappaport (Rogen) to assassinate North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. The two are not the brightest human beings and thus the comedy ride commences.
In an interesting turn of events, North Korea has threatened the US over the release of this film. I guess they didn’t see This Is The End.
We posted the music video for “Come With Me Now” from KONGOS back in May and things have taken off for the group. Starting on July 31st, the band will embark on King of Leon‘s Mechanical Bull Tour. After that, the band will join OneRepublic in the fall on their European Tour.
Check out the dates below for the Mechanical Bull Tour (others can be found on their official website) and catch these guys while you can.
Richard Rawson also known as Fazer in the British hip hop group, N-Dubz has released the music video of his new song, “Fireflies” featuring Tom Parker of The Wanted. This is the second solo track from Rawson and the first solo effort from Parker. This is a new sound for both of these guys and it is brilliant. I will definitely be adding this one to my daily mix. Have a listen above!
Two of my favorites are joining forces: Pitch Perfect and Pentatonix. It was revealed to EW that vocal group, Pentatonix would be joining the cast of the upcoming Pitch Perfect 2 movie. Rejoice, aca-nerds! The group is set to play a rival group to the Barden Bellas and have already filmed their part. This sequel is going to be aca-awesome. Too bad we will all have to wait until 2015 to see it.
Losers & Kings, the new album from The Downtown Fiction is officially out! You can also stream the entire album via YouTube above.
“The release of Losers & Kings feels like the culmination of so many moments all leading up to this day. From the beginning, we were inspired to create something honest and human. The sound of a band in a room. We tried to remain instinctual and idealistic, even childlike. It’s a record about acceptance of yourself and others, depression, escape and those minor triumphs that keep us fighting, uniting us. We pushed ourselves and I’ve never been more proud of anything we’ve accomplished. Thank you to all those who’ve supported us these years. I hope you enjoy listening to Losers & Kings as much as we enjoyed making it.” – Cameron Leahy, Lead Vocals
