The Ocean Bring In Paul Seidel As New Drummer

It’s always depressing when you see one of your favorite bands go through line-up changes, it somehow hurts deep in your bones for the band. You don’t want the band’s integrity or framework tarnished, it’s understandable. When Luc Hess and Jonathan Nido announced they were leaving The Ocean earlier this week, fans were pretty upset. […]

Things are getting spooky now that the end of October has arrived, and Queens of the Stone Age did it up last night to set the mood. On and episode of Conan last night, the Californian band dawned their dark, brooding single “The Vampyre of Time and Memory” off of 2013’s …Like Clockwork. It’s a lot heavier […]

Watch The Weeknd Perform “Pretty” on Jimmy Fallon

The Weeknd stopped by Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night to perform his new radio single, “Pretty,” for the live audience. He seems pretty comfortable on the stage — even moreso than his performance of the song on Letterman a little while ago. We’re happy to see the once hidden artist taking a hold […]

Watch A New Trailer For ‘The LEGO Movie,” More Batman Please

A movie featuring toys that caused my mom agony shouldn’t be on the top of my 2014 “must watch” list, but it is. Somehow The LEGO Movie only gets better with each new trailer that’s released. Batman’s stealing all the laughs in this one though. It’d be easier to name celebrities who didn’t lend their […]

If you followed indie rock at all between 2000 and 2010, there’s a very good chance you were a fan of The Honorary Title and Rilo Kiley (and if you weren’t, both bands have excellent discographies waiting to be discovered). Either way, you’re in for a treat with Night Terrors of 1927, the new project […]

Their latest album, Acceptance Speech, is their finest to date by a wide margin, and today one of the record’s best cuts was given the official video treatment. “Strawberry Swisher Pt III” played […]
