Spoek Mathambo- Spotify House

Spotify is all about spreading music (and making money). No matter, over the past couple months the company has been sponsoring free shows at their Spotify House in Austin, Texas. Can’t hate on that. Videographer Christopher Franko was kind to capture a few of the shows that went down. We’ve never heard of this guy...

Grimes - "Genesis"

Grimes – “Genesis”

Grime’s newest video for “Genesis” is like something out of the Mad Max trilogy.  It features Grimes, aka Claire Boucher, in a sandy wasteland with a bunch of people in crazy clothes and hair.  Then they’re in suburbia with a bunch of crazy looking people, then back to the wasteland.  It’s directed by the Grimy...
Muse - Madness

Muse – Madness

Muse, known for rock that can only be defined as un-defineable, are back with their new single from The 2nd Law.  “Madness” is a dubby love song that eventually gets chorus-style vocals and a more uptempo beat as the song develops.  The album should be a solid new progression for Muse come October 1st.
