Fall In Love With Salt Cathedral’s New Summertime Song “Tease”

We’ve been smitten with Brooklyn four-piece Salt Cathedral‘s music for a little while now. With a style that floats somewhere between indie synthpop, subtle math rock, and sugary vocal heaven, Salt Cathedral are well worth your time and attention. Their 2013 self-titled EP won us over with “Take Me To The Sea,” and now we […]

Earlier today, Third Man Records announced on Facebook that Jack White’s new solo album, Lazaretto, saw over 40,000 vinyl records purchased in the single week that passed since it came out June 10. That’s in the US alone, too. This means White broke the 1-week Soundscan record of most vinyl sales in a week. To gauge how huge this is, […]

Watch Real Estate Debut New Song “White Light” and Cover Weezer’s “Say It Ain’t So”

It’s been quite a year for New Jersey indie rockers Real Estate. Not only did they put out an excellent new album, Atlas, but they announced a new live EP, shared US tour dates, and taught us how to play “Crime” on guitar. Naturally the next step was to stop by La Blogothèque for a dependably breathtaking live session.

Katy Perry Launches New Label, Signs First Artist

Katy Perry is no doubt a busy body, but then again, if your latest record sold 286,000 copies in its opening week, you’d probably be pretty swamped too. Still, in spite of this fact, it seems that the “Birthday” songstress has no intention of slowing her roll anytime soon. Yesterday, Perry took to Twitter to […]

Plies Makes “Loyal” His Own

Plies has been on a remix spree as of late, and it’s admittedly our fault for not bringing this fact to your attention sooner. If you want to lose an afternoon to hip hop, feel free to spend the rest of the day following his efforts on YouTube. Anyway, Plies delivered a remix of “Loyal” […]

Destructo Recruits YG For “Party Up”

Given the amount of attention YG has received in 2014 I suppose it was only a matter of time before Compton’s latest export entered the world of EDM. Enter Destructo. Having already built a strong following in the world of dance music, Destructo has recruited YG in an attempt to find some crossover success with […]

Night Riots Dance With Eloquent Mannequin In New Video

Channeling the best moments of ’80s synth-pop, the new video from Night Riots for the track “Back To Your Love,” is sensational. Singer Travis Hawley lustfully dances with a mannequin-gone-human in an abandoned mall to a tune that oozes with electronic-pop infection.
