It’s not often we review video games around here, but there’s not many video games that are more applicable to our taste’s than Guitar Hero. Many of us were bitten by the buzz when the original Guitar Hero hit the shelves and at the risk of sounding redundant, it’s back and bigger than ever.

Barely beyond 10 years to the day the original Guitar Hero was released, the latest installment arrives with a plethora of changes and upgrades. So we sat down over the holidays and let some family take the first crack at the new game.

As we head into the first week of May and Star Wars fans all over the world yell “May the 4th be with you”, one of my top anticipated releases of the year drops TODAY, beginning the month with a bang. Grammy nominated foursome Hiatus Kaiyote’s sophomore album ‘Choose Your Weapon’ is available everywhere in the U.S., providing more airport dancing jams for all (including me who’s previously danced in several terminals to ‘The World It Softly Lulls’ blasting from my headphones). Stumbling upon this Melbourne, Australia based group when they were scheduled to open for D’Angelo and Busta Rhymes at The Summer Spirit Festival in 2013, I’ve loved their unique blend of electro future soul/ jazz with world music influences ever since.

Staff Editorial: Surprise Drops- Yay or Nay?

As Kendrick Lamar (intentionally or not, which is still up for debate after viewing his management’s reaction) added his name to the list of surprise releases with his latest drop, ‘To Pimp A Butterfly’, the discussion stirred up again like dust in the wind, begging the question, “Do we as fans like it?” “Does it make a difference in the end?” or “Would we have bought these albums no matter their release date?” Although Queen Bey’s not the first artist in history to do it, she re-ignited the latest trend, moving almost a million units of her album in 72 hours in December 2013, with artists like Drake, U2, Björk, Run The Jewels and D’Angelo (with his drop coming 14 years after ‘Voodoo’) joining the ranks. I posed these “Surprise Drops- Yay or Nay?” questions to our staff to get a global perspective as we listen to different genres and here are our thoughts below:

Live: Ed Sheeran in Milan: between + and X!

Ed Sheeran live Milan

Lots of people believe that “You never forget your first time!” and we’re pretty sure Ed Sheeran won’t forget his first gig in Italy, on the 20th of November at Alcatraz in Milan.

This concert was sold out for months. If you missed him this time, luckily he’ll return soon with two upcoming concerts planned in January as well! His British punctuality made him start the concert at 9:02 pm, ending precisely two hours later, with an amazing “Sing”, with over 2500 people in the venue, taking part. A real “one man show”, Ed was all alone on the stage but played like there were other four people on that stage. Cover, mash up, original arrangements and, above all, a live loop station’s application that left us without words. He beautifully harmonized the audience’s choruses and we spent all the time singing following his directions. Read more

As I prep for more upcoming travel, it’s not shocking music is always a must-have. U2’s cloud delivered ‘Songs of Innocence’? Uh no. Grammy-winning New Zealand artist Kimbra’s ‘Vows’ and her latest, ‘The Golden Echo’? Yes, please. Since I first saw her mesmerizing live version of ‘Plain Gold Ring’, I felt a kindred left-field thinking spirit. Playing in the pop sandbox with bold visuals, jazz, musical theatre, electro, hip-hop, new wave and soul influences, this girl was different.

When a music connoisseur mentions the words “DJ Muggs”, several things come to mind. One of the best hip-hop producers of all-time? One of the best producers of all-time, period? That guy from Queens behind all your favorite Cypress Hill classics (he’s working on the next album right now) and the unforgettable House of Pain’s “Jump Around”? The guy who’s collaborated with U2 and Depeche Mode and just recently released an EP this week called ‘Vita E Morte’ with a new multimedia collective featuring Andrew Kline, Brevi, and Sean Bonner named Cross My Heart Hope to Die (CMHHTD)? Yeah, that dude.

One of the best things about summer, besides the abundance of outdoor shows to choose from, is the time to delve into new albums en route to said shows. June yielded several road trip and airplane friendly albums including José James’ standout latest offering, ‘While You Were Sleeping’. Known for merging the old with the new via the blending of neo-soul, electronic, hip-hop and classic jazz influences on previous efforts, José boldly brings touches of punk and folk into the foray this time around. On the experimental tip, he puts a trademark Generation X/Y blurred stamp on your definition of genre.

In the world where we live or die on the hot single, as a music fan nowadays, it’s rare to find cohesive albums that hold your attention with intricate production from start to finish. E-digging in the crates yet again, I came across such a gem called “Renegades” by New Zealand born, LA based producer, musician and orchestra bandleader Mark de Clive-Lowe. I immediately explored more of his diverse discography and found fiery music cutting across at least five genres (latin and classic jazz, soul, electronic, broken beat) from someone drawing comparisons to other avant-garde producers like Quincy Jones. Fortuitously, as is the case in LA, that same week, I attended Mark’s live “CHURCH” show which brought the music (which will be on his upcoming album dropping in June) to life and had the whole crowd dancing with some spirit-filled tambourine shaking.

Peeping Juggalo fan favs Twiztid’s first independently released mixtape , “A New Nightmare” (I, still a horrorcore newbie) frightened, impressed and intrigued me. Putting the break with Psychopathic Records (Insane Clown Posse’s label) behind them, they ventured out on their own and had a very successful 2013, punctuated by their Abominationz Tour and headlining Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare. In their 16 year career, this Detroit duo’s (Madrox and Monoxide) done a lot, working with the likes of Tech N9ne, Swollen Members and Royce Da 5’9, to name a few.

Early in the year I thought this was going to be a pretty mediocre year from music. I wasn’t hearing a lot of stuff that was really exceptional. The thing is, as the year progressed, that really changed. In fact, it wound up quite difficult to get this list to any kind of decent length. I had to make some tough cuts to get it into a small enough format to work.

‘Tis the season to wrap up 2013 and if you were looking to turn up one last time before putting on ugly reindeer sweaters, jingling some bells and shutting it down until 2014, Red Bull Sound Select’s LA show provided the perfect opportunity to do so. Mixing LA-based rising talent (Thurz, Azizi Gibson and the group Warm Brew) with an East Coast producer/artist on top of his game right now (El-P who brought along his Run the Jewels partner Killer Mike), you’d have to search far and wide to find a line-up like that for $3.

“Waking Up In Vegas”- 2013’s Life Is Beautiful Fest Review and Artist Interviews

To say that I had a great time this weekend in Vegas at the first annual Life Is Beautiful music, art and food Fest would be an understatement. The Killers, Imagine Dragons ( whose set featured Cirque Du Soleil Mystere performers) Childish Gambino (who did a dope cover of “Rolling in the Deep”),Janelle Monae (who flew in from NYC after performing on SNL on Saturday),Alabama Shakes (love them), Danny Brown, Allen Stone (always fun live), Wallpaper and a slew of great rising Nevada reppers (including Red Bull Sound Select Tour Bus performers American Cream, Moondog Matinee and Ekoh and Homegrown Stager Sabriel ) and other talents from around the U.S.(The Kingston Springs, Tink, Cosmic Suckerpunch to name a few) all made the traffic I faced driving from Los Angeles worth it.

Everywhere you turned on each block of the downtown Fremont St. vicinity stimulated the senses. Whether it be the 3-D art painted on sides of buildings, the fire-shooting ant, the various indoor and outdoor music stages, the culinary village that featured air-conditioned tent chef demonstrations (came in handy to get a break from the sun) and the ridiculously tasty gourmet food under $10 (how often do you find that at a festival?), it all definitely outweighed the serious walking concertgoers did, traveling around from place to place (in hindsight, it was good calorie burning).

Growing up in my house, hours of booming, “ass-shaking” music filled my ears. Disco, dance and house music, in particular, made my little feet want to move constantly. Arriving in LA years later, a friend put me onto DJ Colette who not only brought those great memories flooding back but made it modern-day relevant. Repping Chicago and DJ collective Superjane, Colette released her first independent album on her own label, Candy Talk, When The Music’s Loud a few weeks ago. Featuring the blazing electronica title single and 80’s Adonis inspired “Hotwire”, DJ Colette’s clearly dropped another album full of club bangers. Read more

A legend and crucial character in Canadian hip-hop, Madchild’s reputation precedes him. An undeniably skilled lyricist and potential loose cannon fiery personality, he’s dropped several unforgettable verses over his 14-year career. As a critical member of four-time Juno Award-winning Swollen Members (along with Rob the Viking and Prevail, who I spoke to earlier this year ), his talent speaks for itself. Achieving mainstream success, the bumpy road’s been filled with addiction detours and legal bans that prevented this brilliant artist from reaching his full potential. Back and better than ever, Madchild’s recently returned to the Canadian and U.S. stage (now allowed to return), rocking the Vans Warped Tour and is poised to drop his latest solo album, “Lawn Mower Man” in August.

Cold War Kids shared a special moment with a sold-out crowd at the Newport Music Hall in Columbus, Ohio April 9.It’s not a band, which interacts much with the audience. But the crowd was prepared to be wowed by their heroes. And the fans were rewarded for their devotion. Cold War Kids rock hard. “Mexican Dogs,” the second song, was where the they started to cut loose.

Nathan Willett put on a good show whether he was singing vocals sans instrument, playing guitar, sitting at the piano or shaking the maracas. The new album, Dear Miss Lonelyhearts, was well represented in the set, which took a little more than an hour. Among the new songs, “Miracle Mile” was the biggest hit with the crowd. The band was entertaining throughout the night, moving about the stage effortlessly. Read more

Paris shoot venue pic

As a kid on the 70’s/80’s cusp, classic rock played an integral part of my childhood. Artists like Pink Floyd, Dire Straits, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Free rattled from our car’s speakers crisscrossing the country on frequent road trips and their songs remain imprinted on my cerebellum permanently. Nerdily scoping the regular late night show music schedule in Los Angeles (like I am prone to do) to see who’d be coming soon, I stumbled upon Rival Sons playing Jimmy Kimmel and gravitated to their latest album Head Down along with their previous one, Pressure and Time with songs like pointed “Burn Down Los Angeles” and sorrowful “Jordan” that now stay on repeat automatically. They took me right back to my favorite period of time blending modern and classic folk, rock, blues and funk, making me want to dance immediately. Live clips of these Long Beach, CA natives (who’ve opened for AC/DC, Judas Priest and Alice Cooper) playing live sealed the deal that this band was f-in dope.

I chatted with Rival Sons’ frontman and lead singer Jay Buchanan right before he left for their latest European tour about “standing on the shoulders of giants”, the band’s secret name for him, working with noted producer Dave Cobb, his love of books and hidden wealth of knowledge that could possibly keep us alive on a stranded island and more.

Interviewing DJ Toure of the Bay Area Hieroglyphics crew a few weeks ago, I luckily connected with another member of the crew, the ringleader, legend and most colorful member, Del Tha Funkee (or The Funky) Homosapien during a tour stop through Southern California recently. One of the best freestylers in the game, which he proved, making the crowd go nuts during his packed show at the Constellation Room, his albums I Wish My Brother George Was Here and No Need for Alarm were two of the my favorite albums of the 90’s. As a member of futuristic Deltron 3030 and Gorillaz multi-platinum “Clint Eastwood” collaborator, his musical history has been varied and full of influential tracks. Watching his documentary , “The 11th Hour”, before the show, a portrait of a gaming, funny creative genius (peep the scene when he talks about porn) emerges.

Taking the stage that night with A-Plus from the Souls of Mischief, they rocked for 90 minutes before I got to catch up with Del after the show. Check the videos and interview clips below and follow Del on Twitter for more deets on his new album!

The world renowned festival, AFROPUNK, has announced the lineup for its critically weekend-long, annual celebration, AFROPUNK BROOKLYN to take place on August 25 & 26 at Brooklyn’s Commodore Barry Park in Fort Greene. The 2018 version of AFROPUNK Fest continues to display one of the most exciting and inclusive lineups in the world. Headlining the fest is Erykah Badu, Tyler, The Creator, Miguel and Janelle Monae. Other performers include The Internet, Twin Shadow, Ibeyi, H.E.R., Daniel Caesar, Lolawolf, Jaden Smith, Willow Smith, Trash Talk, The Fever 333, Denzel Curry, Smino, Jamila Woods, Jessie Reyes and many more (initial lineup below).

The festival that began in Brooklyn in 2005 has since expanded around the world – to Paris and Johannesburg, to London and Atlanta. Beyond the constellation of large-scale live-music events, AFROPUNK is a world-wide community that is the engine of the global black experience, creating space and value for the intersections, embracing the plurality of our stories and individualities across borders and continents. The AFROPUNK festivals are gathering places to experience art and fashion, food and local markets. AFROPUNK is where the global majority comes to see and be seen, to speak loudly and proudly, to resist and party – and, most of all, to make the future.

As has become custom of the now-global movement, AFROPUNK has created a theme for this year’s festivals: The People Resist, a message that brings together AFROPUNK ideology and the people who support it, in resistance to those that strive to oppress. (The entirety of The Peoples Resist statement can be read at the bottom of the press release.)

This year through the work of the AFROPUNK Global Initiative, AFROPUNK has created a new ticketing program called BOGO (Buy One Give One). With each BOGO GA Ticket purchase, (1) additional ticket will be provided to a New York City area youth participating in diversion programs with arts organizations like Recess Art and Young New Yorkers that create pathways to art disciplines and access to mentorship from working artists as an alternative to incarceration.

Within that same breadth and in an effort to make sure that everyone who wants to be a part of the AFROPUNK experience can be, the festival will be bringing back it’s earned ticket program called AFROPUNK ARMY. The earned ticket social justice advocacy program gives fans the opportunity to join AFROPUNK’s volunteer corps for admittance to the festival. AFROPUNK works closely with nonprofit partners to provide volunteer activities and community givebacks in exchange for a ticket to the festival (a minimum of 8 hours of volunteer work will earn ONE General Admission ticket). The AP ARMY program will launch later in the year. To find out more information about the AFROPUNK ARMY volunteer program, fans can sign up at afropunkfest.com.

Also returning this year is The SpinThrift Market, which showcases the best of the AFROPUNK maker community. 90+ DIY-minded craft vendors who sell an array of one-of-a-kind jewelry, natural beauty products, apparel, housewares, books, prints, and more. First selections for the SpinThrift Market include BLK MKT Vintage, Wrap Life, STUZO CLOTHING, Fanta Celah International, ReformedSchool, SHAKALULU and Afrodesiac Worldwide.

As AFROPUNK links communities around the world, it’s important for the AFROPUNK community to connect with unique experiences for the best value. AFROPUNK has partnered with local hotels to offer special rates to attendees The BKLYN House, Brooklyn Hotel, Even Hotel, Hampton Inn, Red Lion, Tilary Hotel, Hotel RL and William Vale among others. AFROPUNK is also proud to announce that we have partnered with Black & Abroad, Tastemakers Africa, and NOMADNESS Travel Tribe to provide uniquely immersive experiences in each festival city that are authentic, inclusive, and most importantly, celebrations of black history and culture. Stay tuned as we announce the experiences that bring each AFROPUNK Festival city to life!

Press Release Roundup: March 9

Music journalists get hit with a steady helping of press releases every day. For the music fan without that kind of sensory overload, a lot of music news can pass by without being seen. Every Friday, we will weed through and compile a list of some of the most intriguing press releases to come across our virtual desk.

Soundset 2018

unnamed

With Spring fast approaching, Rhymesayers Entertainment and Rose Presents reveal the details for the 11th annual Soundset Festival. Once again, the pre-eminent Midwest music and lifestyle experience takes over the Minnesota State Fairgrounds on the Midway Sunday May 27, 2018.

This follows last year’s 10 year anniversary, the biggest year to date, which attracted over 35,000 fans.

Over the years, Soundset has asserted its place at the forefront of the culture as “the largest one-day Hip-Hop festival in the world.” 2018 continues that tradition, only bigger, better, and bolder. In addition to over 40 of the genre’s hottest acts, the day features b-boy and b-girl competitions, DJ sets, live production showcases, art exhibits, a skateboard showdown, custom car show, and more.

It all goes down when gates open at 11:00 AM on May 27 at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds on the Midway. Rain or shine.

Confirmed artists for Soundset 2018 include:

Logic, Migos, Atmosphere, Erykah Badu, Tyler The Creator, Russ, Wu-Tang Clan (25th
Anniversary Enter The Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers), Brockhampton, Ice-T, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Hieroglyphics, Prof, Jaden Smith, Grieves, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Murs, Rapsody, Evidence, Kamaiyah, Westside Gunn & Conway, J.I.D, Young M.A, deM atlaS, DJ
Scratch, Pell, Jack Harlow, Skratch Bastid, DJ Livia, Bugus, Quincey White, The
Lioness, OG Grip, Lazerbeak and Paper Tiger are Sick Trim, Willie Wonka, DJ
Rowsheen, Mike 2600, DJ Bles One and more.

Once again, Atmosphere is primed to deliver an unforgettable hometown set following up their critically acclaimed, Fishing Blues. Red hot from the runaway success of his GRAMMY® Award-nominated quadruple-platinum smash “1-800-273-8255” and third opus Everybody, Logic joins the bill among the headliners, promising nothing short of a show-stopping gig. Three of the hottest names in the game, the multiplatinum triumvirate Migos stand poised to bring the house down after crushing the Billboard Top 200 at #1 with Culture II earlier this year. It’s the first time they’re here!

Legendary R&B and soul sorceress Erykah Badu graces the stage with what promises to be pure magic as Odd Future founder and gold force of nature Tyler, The Creator gets ready to ignite the mosh pits. Supporting his full-length debut There’s Really A Wolf, Virginia’s own Russ takes over with his own fire and flash.

A group that needs no introduction, Wu-Tang Clan will unite to celebrate one of the most influential, impactful, and important rap albums of all-time as Enter The Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers turns 25 this year, Multiplatinum New York disruptor A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie brings new East Coast energy, while Ice T reps the West Coast O.G.’s like only he can. Musical collective Brockhampton turn up with their wave-making sound as rising pop icon Jaden Smith fuels the party with style and substance. Minnesota’s own Prof will be on hand to rep his hometown, introducing the audience to his new album Pookie Baby due out on April 13.

Touting new music from his latest Rhymesayers epic Weather or Not, Dilated Peoples’ Evidence makes his way back to the hallowed Soundset stage. Pell drops in with some New Orleans style, and XXL Freshman Cover star Kamaiyah flaunts Bay Area bravado with a hint of massive melody. Just a month after releasing A Journey Into the Unimaginable, L.A.’s own Murs unlocks a live trip of his own for fans. Making his first appearance at Soundset, the legendary DJ Jazzy Jeff brings decades of skill to the lineup. Rhymesayers own and another vet Grieves returns to Soundset performing his new album, Running Wild. Rapsody is back for a second go-round, as is Hieroglyphics. Dreamville’s own J.I.D. ignites the stage with tracks from his debut The Never Story. Minnesota native Lazerbeak also teams with Paper Tiger for their first ever live performance as Sick Trim.

Reprising his role as main stage master of ceremonies for the sixth time, radio and television personality Sway Calloway of SiriusXM Shade 45 returns to the fest. Heather B of SiriusXM, JPRATT and CROS One are also on hand again to host the other stages.

Always going beyond the music, the Essential Elements tent houses the 5th annual Freestyle Session Minnesota B-Boy/B-Girl competition. The Skateboard Showdown presented by Familia offers an extreme angle for the eighth year. Fans get to experience the Soundset Custom Car Show and the Last of the Record Buyers production showcase for the tenth time. Plus, the second live painting exhibition.

That’s not even half of it though. You’ll have to get a ticket for the full effect…

Get ready for Soundset 2018.

Cheltenham Jazz Fest

unnamed

Stars from all corners of the globe will once again descend on the Regency town of Cheltenham for the return of the Cheltenham Jazz Festival. Boasting a unique programme packed with UK debuts, one-off performances and exclusively curated concerts, this year’s festival, which runs from May 2nd to 7th, is set to deliver its trademark, broad-appealing mix of the best classic and contemporary jazz, soul, blues, and pop on offer from an array of international powerhouse acts, and the brightest emerging talent.

Joining an impressive raft of high-profile names already announced for this year’s festival, including the likes of Kamasi Washington, Randy Crawford, Donny McCaslin, Beth Hart and Nigel Kennedy, are visionary singer-songwriter Van Morrison, multi-million-selling Corinne Bailey Rae, award-winning pop-jazz singer Caro Emerald and chart-topping Irish vocalist Imelda May. Rick Astley will be exploring jazz and the Great American Songbook backed by the Ronnie Scott’s Big Band and internationally revered food critic Jay Rayner fronts his much-lauded piano quartet. 2018 will also see the festival’s first curated concert series by DJ and broadcaster Gilles Peterson, which will feature shows from neo-soul frontrunner Jordan Rakei, MOBO and Jazz FM Award-winning drummer Moses Boyd’s Exodus, and the hotly-tipped UK singer-songwriter Zara McFarlane. Artistic Curator Jamie Cullum has once again selected some of his stand-out acts for the festival, with Mercury-nominated prog jazzers Dinosaur, cinematic nu-jazz outfit Portico Quartet, and the first ever UK performance from Christian McBride’s Big Band among his top picks.

Other heavyweight names confirmed for the 6-day event are British jazz giant and multiple MOBO winner Courtney Pine’s celebrated collaboration with soul singer Omar, legendary funk crew Tower of Power, Roller Trio with an exclusive set premiering new material, inimitable US jazz vocalist China Moses, boundary-pushing sounds from venerable British saxophonist Evan Parker’s Trance Map+ for what will be their second ever performance, Seun Kuti, the son of the legendary Afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti, with his late father’s band Egypt 80, and previously unheard material from Empirical.. Kansas Smitty’s House Band return to the Daffodil following their sold-out takeover last year to present their best of the programme from their East London bar. Also back by popular demand are electronic musicians Iain Chambers and Dan Nicholls with their Recomposed series, which this year will see performances from Swiss vocalist Lucia Cadotsch and Kit Downes’ fierce piano trio ENEMY, who launch their new album at the festival, reworked and artfully mixed into an entirely new piece of music at the Parabola (“an exhilarating ride” – The Guardian). A unique cross-arts project is also set for the Parabola, which brings together the dynamic Birmingham-based band Hansu-Tori with dancers from Birmingham Royal Ballet to perform excerpts from their show Wolves Are People Too, inspired by the iconic Japanese animation film Wolf Children.

Long-standing festival partner BBC Radio 2 will host live onsite broadcasts across the weekend, including a Rollin’ On The River themed Friday Night Is Music Night which will see the BBC Concert Orchestra and Guy Barker Big Band plus a host of acclaimed guest vocalists including Shaun Escoffery and Vanessa Haynes on a musical journey along the Mississippi River. There will also be live broadcasts from Clare Teal and Jo Whiley, as well as from Cerys Matthews and Gilles Peterson on BBC Radio 6Music.

Representing the younger generation are London-based contemporary jazz guitarist Rob Luft, the breathtaking vocals of Jazzmeia Horn, who blew audiences away with her performance at this year’s Grammys ceremony, US soul singer Jalen N’Gonda, best known for his 2017 breakthrough hit “I Need You”, Jamie Cullum’s festival pick vocalist Anoushka Lucas, and a double bill from 24-year-old rising star vocalist Hannah Grace, and last year’s winner of Glastonbury’s ‘Emerging Talent’ competition Josh Barry.

As well as providing a platform for a new generation of artists, the festival offers a range of inspirational opportunities for young people: introducing jazz to preschoolers in the Yamaha Discovery Space; initiating primary-aged children in the joy of jazz; providing performance opportunities for local school jazz bands; and offering behind the scenes access and one-on-one career advice from industry professionals, which will be available for the first time this year by appointment. The winner of the inaugural LetterOne ‘RISING STARS’ Jazz Award, 19-year-old guitarist Tom Ibarra, will start his tour of the seven major jazz festivals in Europe at Cheltenham.

The 2018 Cheltenham Jazz Festival is hosted in a tented festival village in the town centre’s picturesque Montpellier Gardens, featuring the Henry Westons Big Top stage, Jazz Arena, Free Stage, Yamaha Discovery Space, a programme of family activities and events and a food, drink and market area. The Festival reaches beyond the festival village into Cheltenham bringing jazz to venues throughout the day until late into the night. These include Cheltenham Town Hall, Cheltenham Ladies’ College Parabola Arts Centre, Hotel du Vin, Malmaison and The Daffodil, as well as a dynamic free fringe line-up …around town with over 90 shows across the festival weekend.

Tickets go on sale to members from February 28th and on general sale from March 7th.

Friends, foes and the rest, lend me your ear as we go over what is expected to be the best year of albums releases in albums releases since, god knows when. What is likely to be looked back at as the legendary year of hypes, flops and… the rest…

1. Radiohead – Since “Pablo Honey”, these guys don’t know what musical privacy means. That said, they ALWAYS COME THROUGH in the coffee clutch. Gonna be a a great recording folks.
2. Brand New – Tease and tease, seemingly, this album was recorded, mixed and planned months ago, they’re biding their time, as per status quo. Good luck will bring it in 2016. Hang in there.
3. Atmosphere – Sean Daley and Aaron Lewis have surely met? “It’s been a while” since you inspired with that uniqueness you bleed.
4. Deftones – The teaser was so fine, let’s stick with it…don’t just be another album again.
5. Kings of Leon – We know you’re saying “God’s (not Lord’s) gonna get us back,” just admit it bro. Seriously, two straight disappointing albums, its time the Talihina foursome hits us with the real thing. They will lose the majority of their fans if they don’t publish aggressive, reckless loving punk and blues again. Sorry, this is the awkward truth.
6. Tool – In the same ilke of KOL, these guys could lose some fans if after years of inter-drama and all that jazz they don’t release a majory innovative collection of songs. This album cements their place in musical history, for good-or-ill, we ain’t talking about Puscifier folks, we’re talking that over-grown, over analyzed, ridiucoulous amount of materials (drums and strings) for one six settings recording session that includes echoes and avenues never visited by any rock band in history.
7. Jeff Buckley –
8. Explosions In The Sky- They just NEVER FAIL
9. Incubus – They could ressurect their career with a return to aggro-rock, but no one would believe it. Just go back to heartful shit and wish for the best.
10. M83 – Stick with what works, we obviously love the instrumental and lyric-light strife, make more!!!!!

Even big names like Wolfmother, Metallica, NIN, RHCP, Sepultura, Soundgarden,, TEsament, U2 and Wiz Khalifa will all bring a dramatic expectation to their release, whether they meet it or not, well, I suppose that’s a horse of another colour.
