Known for bringing madness to every stage they hit, NYC enthusiastically welcomed Chicago natives Flosstradamus this past weekend, who after selling out their Friday night show, returned to Terminal 5 the next night.

Ahh Christmas is in the air. Bakeries around town are serving their most gingered confections, children everywhere tare on their A-game with good behavior, and every American citizen is at all times within a 5 block radius of a fat man in Santa Suit. Department stores far and wide play a nonstop mix of holiday tunes, and you surely cherish every second of it. This is why we have compiled a list of the best Christmas songs of all time ever. Assuming “ever” dates back to 1946.
So light a fire in the fire place, add chestnuts and enjoy. Because all you want for Christmas is some more Christmas tunes.

Today, Google premiered their Year In Search 2014 film, which recaps the most definitive things people looked for and asked about this year. Alongside images of movies, music videos, sporting events, and historical moments from around the world, the video carries itself to the sounds of 'Divinity' by Porter Robinson. The track, featuring vocals by Amy Milan, is off of Porter Robinson's debut full-length album, Worlds, and its beautifully dreamy melody lends itself perfectly as the backdrop to the emotions evoked by images of the many famous faces we lost this year, including Joan Rivers, Maya Angelou, and Robin Williams, as well as hilariously uplifting clips of poplar Vines, the Ice Bucket Challenge, and scientific breakthroughs that changed lives.

Having just released his full length album In Space, No One Can Hear Your Boring Stories, we decided to grab a few words with the Melbourne based Smile On Impact. With the LP covering so many different sounds and styles, we wanted to hear how he went about writing it.
In three words, how would you sum up your sound?
Intergalactic Laser Crunk.
Do you have any favorites from the album?
"Heartbreak Song" with Froya is the least clubby track on the record but probably my favourite. Froya & I have mutual friends in Malaysia but have never actually met, and getting her to put down a vocal my track was super exciting. She did an amazing job and I rejigged the whole arrangement on the track to give her voice the space and focus it deserves.
Love can blossom from friendship, but if it fades, friendship rarely remains. Atlanta-based songstress, Brooklynn, seems to be experiencing that very conundrum in the lyrics of her heartfelt new track "Friends," being offered as a free download right here on Joonbug! "Friends" toes the line between confidence and insecurity, with Brooklynn at first crooning assuredly, "I can do it better, I can do it right, I can give you treasures every single night..." before pulling back and expressing her worries of "things will never be the same again...no going back, no going back to friends..." Blend these conflicting emotions with a smooth beat and Brooklynn's soaring vocals for a gorgeous track that will move you to the core. Check it out the track HERE!
