Gotye's video for "Somebody That I Used To Know" made waves on the internet for it's interesting style, and his latest visual for "Save Me" is just as unique. It's entirely animated and doesn't feature Gotye at all, but instead a cardboard robot that is slowly piecing itself together. Are those bacon strips? In the end the empty-looking robot meets another being who has a heart. Watch it below.
Hey Gotye, how about a video for "In Your Light" next?Read More

The brainchild of founding members Adam Moore and Nathan Mcbroom, and finding practice space in various places on Western Kentucky University's campus, Foxhole was heavily influenced by other Kentucky bands such as Slint and June of '44.

The second performance featured the aforementioned players together with Derek on bass, Greg impr...Read More

It's that time of the week again! New release Tuesday is always a day I look forward too. Usually, it's quite the exciting day, but lately I have been rather disappointed every Tuesday when I check the new releases and 3/4's of the stuff that came out is crap.

Today we have new releases from:
Young Jeezy-"TM:103 Hustlerz Ambition"
Common- "The Dreamer, The Believer"
Radiohead- "The Daily Mail & Suitcase"
Progress in Color- "Aruba"
Of Monsters And Men- "Into the Woods"

Rockers the Black Keys have chosen not to release their new album "El Camino" on popular music streaming services such as Rdio, Spotify, Moog, and Pandora. The group said while they're not opposed to it eventually, that it hurts initial sales.
This seems to be quite the backwards approach, as these streaming services definitely bring about new fans.

"It's really just a song about greed," Chevelle frontman Pete Loeffler explains about "Face to the Floor." The Chicago hard-rockers were so aligned with the cause of Occupy Wall Street that they filmed a clip in New York City, interviewing occupiers and adding their own two cents about corporate greed and broken financial practices.
"We'd love for it to be a soundtrack for people who are frustrated and tired of being ripped off," says bassist Dean Bernardini.
"Face to the Floor" is the lead track off Chevelle's upcoming Hats Off to the Bull, coming Dec. 6....Read More
