Here’s the official music video for LCD Soundsystem’s latest track ‘oh baby’ and it’s simplistic beauty makes it one of this year’s best.
It stars Sissy Spacek and David Strathairn as two aged scientists frantically trying to map out an extremely complicated equation for something big. I’ll leave it at that. The video is directed by Rian Johnson, a man who surprisingly didn’t wreck out childhood with his brilliant Star Wars: The Last Jedi movie, proving once more he’s a talent to pay attention to.
I personally don’t mind Muse as a band but throughout their career they’ve always managed to produce some of the more inventive and entertaining music videos.Their latest for the single Pressure is no exception.
Directed by filmaker Lance Drake it stars the band and legendary actor Terry Crews and is rammed full of pop culture and movie references from the 80s, ranging from the more obvious Back To The Future and Critters to the more obscure like The Exterminator and Fright Night.
It merits a couple of watches to catch them all. Good luck.
Italian singer Andrea Bocelli has released a new song which has pretty much made most of the internet weep.
Bocelli, who was born blind, has joined forces with his 20 year-old talented son, Matteo Bocelli, to sing a moving duet entitled ‘Fall On Me’, which has accumulated almost three million views on YouTube in only five days.
A man who has never been able to see his own son, singing in perfect harmony with him is probably the most emotional thing you’ll experience on the internet this week.
For some time there have been rumours flying around the internet that rock band Foo Fighters were on the verge of breaking up, mainly due to further inaccurate speculation that the band considered lead man Dave Grohl to be ‘too Hollywood’.
So when the band issued a statement that an official announcement would be made online everyone automatically assumed the band was finished.
They couldn’t have been more wrong. The announcement itself was nothing short of hilarious.
This music video from rock outfit Tragedy entitled All Metal Tribute to the Bee Gees & Beyond is a masterful cover version of the iconic John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John track You’re The One That I Want.
The fact that it’s a heavy metal cover is one thing but there’s so much more going on in this track with homage paid to Nirvana, Black Sabbath, Twisted Sister and more.
I’ve never been a fan of Nickelback, though I was once dragged to one of their concerts by an ex-girldfriend, (emphasis on ex-girlfriend), but their new single She Keeps Me Up is a large departure for the rock group.
Apart from looking like a bunch of middle-aged divorcees hitting the club, witht their 15 year-old suits and frosted tips, their sound has mutated into some sort of dance/disco ear ebola. You know, like a bargain bin version of Maroon 5.
Here’s the first official trailer for the much anticipated music bio-pic Straight Outta Compton about the rise and fall of the iconic Los Angeles rap outfit N.W.A.
The film is directed by F. Gary Gray (Friday, Set It Off, The Italian Job), and is produced by founding members Ice Cube and Dr Dre. The plot for the movie rattles along like so:
In the mid-1980s, the streets of Compton, California, were some of the most dangerous in the country. When five young men translated their experiences growing up into brutally honest music that rebelled against abusive authority, they gave an explosive voice to a silenced generation. Following the meteoric rise and fall of N.W.A., Straight Outta Compton tells the astonishing story of how these youngsters revolutionized music and pop culture forever the moment they told the world the truth about life in the hood and ignited a cultural war.
Straight Outta Compton is scheduled for release on August 14th
