Okay, so I’ve been going through a massive Type O Negative phase of late. Perhaps it’s fitting then, that George Kalpa comes along with a new track for me to listen to - and share with you all. Seriously, it’s got a sweet video too. Check it out below.
Downbeat hip-hop is so hard to find these days. Well, good hip-hop, that is. so thankfully, Allday comes along and drops a new album and a new video to accompany it. Just in time for a summer chill out. Check it out below.
There’s something really awesome about alt pop punk rock. The boys from Catfish and the Bottlemen are pretty damn awesome - and they’re from the UK. But hey, if you don’t like them that’s totally fine - i’ll see them by myself when they’re here supporting The Kooks.
Now that we've had time to digest the abrasive new album RTJ2 from the unstoppable Run The Jewels, it's only right that we are treated to a music video for one of the LPs most exciting cuts. "Blockbuster Night Part 1" makes you picture something a bit more chaotic and explicit than Mike Bigga and El Producto as EMTs, but watching them haphazardly drive around the street of Atlanta in an ambulance half-assing their way through a day on the job is pretty fun. Let's just hope they never become EMTs though.
Following the full versions of "Ring Off" and "7/11" which were released yesterday by Beyoncé, the queen of music has released a fun music video for the latter. There's less in the way of production here, rather, Bey takes advantage of some effects to spin her and her dancers goofing around into one of her most playful videos to date. Watch out for the Blue Ivy cameo.
Hip-hop legends 1200 Techniques recently announced their return, with their new EP Time Has Come being revealed and slated for a January 23rd release. Fans have already gotten a taste of the new material, with the "Time Has Come" single dropping through Rubber Records earlier this week.
Directed and produced by Scott Major comes the new film clip from Dallas Frasca for the great tune, "You Are Beautiful". To put it simply, it's a video about celebrating the human form - we've got our own issues with our bodies and how we look, but "You Are Beautiful" is about recognising what makes everyone individual and indeed, beautiful. Inside and out. The track is unapologetically passionate in its lyricism and its delivery, while that chaotic guitar and relentless percussion incite a fury of positivity and power that is so great to see in a climate where looks seem to be everything.
After debuting the track live on the recent One Day tour, the duo of Nick Lupi and Jimmy Nice, better known as Spit Syndicate, have dropped a video for their new single "Real". It's dark with an aggressive tone, and there's a lot of mean mugging going on, with guest appearances from the whole crew as the duo bounce head-spinning rhymes and a slick hook off of a polished drum-heavy production. Check it out below.
the AU review captures the highlights of Peking Duk's set at the NH7 Weekender Festival in Kolkata, India. The boys from Peking Duk played to a receptive audience who many would have heard the group for the first time. Look out for the Bollywood music mix in the middle of the set.
the AU review captures the moment Alister Wright became a real man. While in Kolkata, India to perform at the NH7 Weekender Festival, the Cloud Control frontman had a surprise in store for the crowds during a very... explosive... guitar solo. This may be the coolest thing you've ever seen.
Melbourne’s The Trotskies have backed up the hype of their new single “DYR” with a thrilling music video that pays homage to gangster movies and film noire.

The track is a great pop number, Chaisson's vocals worked in and around a cool bluesy arrangement.
