Another week means another incredible Timeflies Tuesday video. This time Cal and Rez went for a crossover of “Pompeii” by Bastille and “Sweater Weather” by The Neighborhood. The song combination has Cal’s vocal abilities on full display, showing off his true gift as a vocalist as he knocks this TFT video out of the park. Let this video get you pumped up for Timeflies new album “AfterHours” release on April 29th!
Just a few months ago MisterWives released their Reflections EP, today they are getting fans excited heading into the upcoming SXSW festivities down in Texas. First the group dropped the lyric video for “Reflections” the title song on their EP. MisterWives also decided to release a cover for their fans of Sam Smith’s track “Money On My Mind”, and once again I was blown away by the incredible vocals of Mandy Lee. Last time they covered a track it was Drake’s “Hold On We’re Going Home” and it was played over 100,000 times over the past 5 months since it’s release. As we mentioned before the group will be heading down south next week to have some fun in Texas. They will be playing shows in Austin on March 12th & 14th (SXSW) and then heading to Dallas on the 16th for a show at the House Of Blues. If you are in the area definitely check them out because they are about to make some big time noise heading into festival season.
It was a busy Tuesday night for Cal and Rez, they held an “Ask TF” question & answer session on UStream and also dropped this behind the scenes video from the making of the “All The Way” music video. As you may or may not already know the guys are getting ready to release their new album “AfterHours” on April 29th. During the UStream chat last night we learned the new album has a double-digit number of tracks on it and we couldn’t be more thrilled about getting brand new Timeflies music in just over a month. Of the two songs Timeflies previewed they described one as semi-country influenced and the other track was a banger called “Beast”. If you live in the NYC area and do not plan on being at Terminal 5 on April 29th for the “AfterHours” release show, you really need to check your priorities because its going to be an insane night!
We have another huge leak today that got me so excited I almost couldn’t listen to it. Well I did and what I think all of you need to do is not expect anything like In My Mind and just recall what he’s been working on lately. Still, everyone get ‘Happy’ that he’s released this a week early to listen to and we get to witness the greatness with artists like JT and Daft Punk. It’s definitely pop music and he’s drifted away from his Neptunes bass-bumping tracks (at least for now). Now, sit back and enjoy some of the tunes below and you can head on over to iTunes to listen to the whole thing. Hip hop fans check out Mastermind below. Both are not out officially ’til next week but yah.
Release Date: March 3rd, 2014
Broken Bells is an american Indie rock duo that I recently came upon and I thought I would shed some light on their newest album; After the Disco. Listening to a few of their songs, I immediately decided to “download” the album. The whole disco theme reminded me of Daft Punk’s RAM and the indie sound struck me as a very low-key sound of the Black Keys. Every ear is different, but check out the three songs below and see what you think. Can also hear slights of M83 and Empire of the Sun in the songs I’ve listened to of this space-inspired group. This album has not got good reviews from their fans but they’re new to me.
