Don’t you hate it when you feel like you are the last one to find out something really exciting?  Just so you aren’t the last one to the party, consider yourself cool and elite while watching this! Chromeo, the 80′s loving electronic/synth duo, have just released a new video for a single off last year’s Business Casual record.  That’s right, the boys are still getting some well deserved traction off the 2010 release.  This creatively crafted music video is at once both unique and entertaining.  It involves disco ball pregnancy through musical instruments!  The guys are gearing up for another tour soon, and we may get to interview them.  Just to make sure you aren’t the last person on the internet to see it, here is this week’s video of the week, “When The Night Falls”  (soon to be viral) :

Written by Brian Rutherford
This week, kids in all parts of this great United States have headed back to school. Yes, it’s the end of the summer, but no one tell that to the Rock Allegiance Tour, which kicked off in (Dallas/Fort Worth), TX yesterday. Though most of the artists on the R.A.T. tour are boisterous party-rock artists and the bill pretty much speaks for itself, no frills Rock at an affordable one day festival rate. Read more

Last weekend, we were lucky enough to catch the Sublime With Rome (SWR) and 311 show, as the Unity Tour 2011 stopped in Dallas. We’ve been covering SWR since last year, including a phone interview with Rome in April before the release of their lastest record, Yours Truly. It’s their first new, original music recorded since the addition of Rome to the current line-up. Watch as I get a few minutes to chat with the new lead singer as we discuss the tour, the new record, and some special exclusive news: Read more

Video Of The Week: Mac Miller-Frick Park Market

posted August 19, 2011, 8:45 am by Ben Oliver | Filed Under Music News | comment Leave a Comment


I don’t know how else to put this without just saying it: Mac Miller is one of the most talented among the current crop of young, up and coming hip-hop stars. I’m referring to Big K.R.I.T., Kreayshawn, Lil B, and Odd Future. The unsigned MC hailing from Pittsburgh is constantly working and putting out new material. So far in 2011 he dropped an EP called On And On And Beyond, then his most recent release was a mixtape titled Best Day Ever. This video is the single for his new full length record, Blue Slide Park, set to come out later this fall on Rostrum Records. This isn’t the first time we have bragged about the boy, we also put him on an episode of our Unsigned and Wound Up podcast here.

Written by Benjy Oliver

Yesterday, I was fortunate enough to spend a few minutes talking to Blue October lead vocalist Justin Furstenfeld. Furstenfeld was driving to Dallas for the first show of their new tour to promote a new record, Any Man In America. Armed with a new experience, rather than product release, Blue October has an undeniable momentum building from some very unique changes. We chatted about the new release, tour opening artists and of course Young Buck?
