    You know that feeling you get when you land on a really good music discovery? Everyone that knows me know that I am musically varied. I grew up in the Myspace days when emo/punk was a thing and Warped Tour was the Osheaga of our today. Indie became a genre and rock became too soft, hip-hop took over and for a the last couple of years, rock music has tried to make its comeback and failed, multiple times.  Their are only a handful of bands that can achieve mass-appeal, and CHILDCARE is...

    This colorful video from Little Boots is equal parts fun and creepy. Little Boots collaborated with director Ish Sahotay to create the conveyor belt style video featuring lots of models with dead eyes and some other weird and shocking images. Some of these things include cutting off a finger, feet in a hamburger, jumping in jello and even this one chick getting down on a rack of ribs like its her last meal: The video is meant to portray gluttony in a way.

    It's safe to say that everyone seems to love LA's most enigmatic new act, OOFJ. After creating music for both Lars Von Trier's masterpiece 'Melancholia' and top IDFF winning documentary 'Ai Wei Wei - The Fake Case', the band's musical credibility was solidified a long time ago. However, with news that the duo's sophomore album Acute Feast is due in March of next year, OOFJ seems to have come out of nowhere over the past few weeks as forerunners for a Ones to Watch spot in 2015. Featuring both...

Last time we made sure to emphasize the fact that this guy has one of the strongest voices in the industry. His new track, "The Rhythm", stands behind that. This time, we're here to stress the creative talent and the sensational mind that this 19 year-old crooner possesses. His resume alone speaks volumes. Among the plethora of artists he's written for, he's got writing credits for...

    The general reaction from anyone when I confess my love for One Direction (specifically Harry Styles — because I mean C'MON!) is usually a scrunched up face and a resounding "That's disgusting". This is the most common reaction because I am probably a little too old to love adorable boy bands as much as I do. The words "creepy" and "wrong" immediately come to mind for anyone listening to my babble about how hot so and so is or how many times I watched their latest video — because that doesn't...
