BBC Radio 1 Is Rescoring ‘Drive’ With Chvrches, Jon Hopkins, The 1975, SBTRKT, More

Remember how cool the soundtrack for Drive was? It was almost as cool as Driver’s jacket, all ’80s-chic electric goodness, and it was one of the biggest reasons audiences fell in love with the film. That CD is still in my car as I type this. Now, BBC Radio is giving something that was already great another […]

Jacob Tender’s ‘Best Of 2013′ In Music

‘Tis the season to make the most difficult choices I have to make all year. Seriously, my life is easy enough to make that statement true. I hate making these lists, more-so this year than any year previous. Yet I’m obligated to do so. So here I am. You see, in January, I told myself […]

Tarynn Law’s ‘Best of 2013’ In Music

To say that 2013 has been one hell of a year for music would be, well, the understatement of the year. The music community has been #blessed with some awesome new bands that weren’t around (or hadn’t released anything) prior to 2013 and are now making massive waves, some of which are in my top […]

Coheed and Cambria

STREAM/DOWNLOAD: Coheed and Cambria Covers Bastille’s “Pompeii”

Oh. My. Lord. It has happened. This is the most fantastic thing to happen this year. Coheed and Cambria has covered Bastille.

Bastille Covers Miley Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop” With An 8 Mile Twist

Today I shopped for groceries. I normally hate doing this, but today it was ok. I think Bastille had something to do with that. For the majority of the morning and afternoon, I had Bad Blood on repeat. This is simply one of the best albums this year. It’s stunning. Listening to this while pushing […]
