NEW MUSIC POST: Skyfall, by Adele

Thursday, October 4th, 2012 | Georgie Morvis

Sure, Adele is pregnant. But that didn’t stop her from releasing a new song today for the James Bond movie of the same name, Skyfall. And it’s typically brilliant. Her already-legendary-and-single-handedly-saved-the-music-industry voice soars over a 77-piece orchestra, and it is the right balance of sultry and mystery. It sounds exactly like I expected it to, and that doesn’t even bother me one bit . I hope it wins the Best Original Song Oscar.

Listen to Skyfall here.

NEW MUSIC VIDEO: Oath, by Cher Lloyd feat. Becky G.

Thursday, October 4th, 2012 | Georgie Morvis

Earlier today I reviewed Cher Lloyd’s new album, Sticks and Stones. The new music video for one of my favorite songs off the album, Oath, was just released.. It’s a very average music video, but Lloyd pulls off a number of extremely different looks, which speaks margins about her beauty. This is only the second time I’ve ever seen Becky G, and maybe this is just my Snooki-missing heart speaking, but I’d like to see her more often.

NEW MUSIC POST: “Christmas Unicorn” by Sufjan Stevens

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012 | Mark Matousek

Rejoice! Christmas has come early courtesy of Sufjan Stevens, who this morning announced a five EP, 58-song box set entitled Silver & Gold: Songs For Christmas. It will serve as a follow-up to his 2006 Christmas collection, Songs for Christmas. The epic, 12-minute “Christmas Unicorn” is the first full song from the set to be released. Sounding like a B-side from his 2010 album, Age of Adz, “Christmas Unicorn” is heavy on the computer-generated effects and grand ambition that characterized Age of Adz. It also features a re-working of Joy Divison’s “Love Will Tear Us Apart”. Yes, it’s as awesome as it sounds. You can listen to it here.

Silver & Gold: Songs For Christmas will be released on November 13.

NEW MUSIC VIDEO: “Yet Again” by Grizzly Bear

Thursday, September 27th, 2012 | kaylahollenbaugh1

Brooklyn-based indie rock band Grizzly Bear released their latest video today. The song is “Yet Again”, taken from their most recent album “Shields”. Directed by Emily Kai Block, the video follows a struggling and depressed figure skater through a hazy, blue-tinged journey of ice rinks, pools and suburbia. The song perfectly complements the video’s tone, as lead singer Edward Droste’s muted vocal meanderings assist the trancelike feel, all leading up to the climax.

NEW MUSIC POST: Lana Del Rey – Ride

Tuesday, September 25th, 2012 | Georgie Morvis

The always polarizing Lana Del Rey released the lead single for the rerelease of her album Born to Die (our review). It’s called “Ride,” and it’s a slow-burner (like most Lana songs) with an absolutely breathtaking string section. It’s giving me serious “Read My Mind” by the Killers vibes.Basically, it’s perfect for fall.
