Album Review: Life in Static

Static; it’s noisy, annoying, irritating, and distracting. So how do you combat it? Pop Punk, alternative rock band, Larusso, has the answer with their new full-length CD set to release August 15th entitled Life in Static! Inspired by such bands as Blink 182, Yellowcard, and Anberlin, these guys have grown in popularity, making them a sound to look out for on the music scene. And, already boasting an extensive catalog of EP’s and LP’s, the band hopes to continue their success with this new album.

Currently on their “Don’t Call It a Comeback Tour,” this perfectly timed album speaks to fans directly about overcoming obstacles and rising above downfalls, such things the band has taken pride in standing for. The lead single, “The Voice,” sets the tone for such a message and has an empowering sound that fits well into the rest of the album. If you want a great listen and a fan of alternative rock from a band with a message check out Life in Static!

The Chainsmokers Present: 'Kanye'

After the overwhelming amount of success The Chainsmokers received from '#Selfie' almost everybody has been wondering the same exact thing; what's next?

In what will be their first single release since '#Selfie,' Drew Taggart and Alex Pall, aka The Chainsmokers, are getting ready to have a little fun with the notorious Kanye West. Recently posting a preview to their Instagram, the NYC duo have still left listeners everywhere confused and guessing on what exactly to expect with 'Kanye.' All we really know right now is that the track features some initially dreamy vocals from Siren, who sings, "One day I'll stand with a crown on my head like a god. Yeah, like a god." With only a very small fifteen second glimpse that cuts off before we get any real sense of the track, 'Kanye' could very easily go in any direction possible.

Diplo Serves Up A New Remix

Step aside Flume, because Diplo's new remix of Lorde's 'Tennis Court' is definitely a winner. Two months after previewing the remix with a very interesting selfie Instagram video, Diplo finally gives us a full look at the track just one week before the official release of his album Random White Dude Be Everywhere. In just one day, the song has already managed to reach over half a million listens on Soundcloud, and it's easy to tell why. Complete with super smooth basslines and a groovy yet melodic trap breakdown, Diplo's remix of 'Tennis Court' is very downtempo, chilled out track that still makes you wanna get up and dance.
