  • “I know that you would want it if I could sink my teeth into you,” sing Aly & AJ on their icy hot new single “Take Me.”  The fact that the song is uber-catchy alone makes it sufficient for a song of the day posting, but we have a cherry on top of the ice…

  • Acclaimed DJ and producer Agatino Romero was born in Hamburg, but still considers himself an authentic Italian.  His family, you see, comes from Catania, Sicily.  Until a few years ago,  he was on his way as a young professional soccer player with HSV and the Italian club Calcio Catania until a serious injury stopped him.  Since…

  • Snoop Dogg is the man.  No, not the police.  The other man, the cool one, the coolest motherfucker in the world.  So, when he drops a laid back trap track like “Trash Bag,” we take notice.  The just released video has everything you could want in a music video: Snoop Dogg, bags of money, lovely…

  • “This is the apocalypse,” sings Garbage frontwoman Shirley Manson as their new single “No Horses” comes to its chilling conclusion.  It starts off sounding like it’s going to be a synth pop song, albeit a dark one, with Shirley singing, “They’ll love you,

  • Usually, our song of the day selections are just released, new songs.  But sometimes one feels like shining the proverbial light on something that’s been around for a while.  That’s the case with today’s pick, “Mahal Kita” by Emmy The Great.

  • by Michael McCarthy On June 9th at the Wolf Den in Mohegan Sun in Connecticut I was finally able to catch hair metal/classic rock legends Mr. Big live after wanting to see them in concert for roughly 25 years.  Needless to say, I had high hopes.  If they were great, I probably would’ve been slightly…

  • “I cannot breathe,” sings Maximo Park’s frontman Paul Smith on their just released new single “Risk to Exist,” but the song is actually a breath of fresh air. I haven’t been doing many song of the day posts lately, less they take the focus off of our interviews, but after I listened to this one…

  • Talking Heads’ “Psycho Killer” is a timeless classic, obviously, but I dare say this cover by Smoke Season is even better than the original. They’ve turned it into a downright mesmerizing trip-hop song that’s twice as eerie as the Talking Heads version and the video is equally hypnotic. As usual, Gabrielle Wortman’s vocals are a…

  • “Living In Germany” is the solo debut of the always brilliant Valerie Renay, who you should know from Noblesse Oblige, the dark duo for which she is the singer. Each time Valerie releases something, it seems to be darker than the last and I’d dare say that’s the case with “Living in Germany,” a shockingly…

  • Today’s #songoftheday, “Reach” by Tyketto, was released in late August, but we’re featuring it now on October 14th because their new album of the same name was released today via Frontiers records and in my humble opinion it’s the best album that’s come out during the past couple of weeks. There have been some great…

  • Self-described as a “salad rock” band, King Shelter are a grunge-tinged, semi-psychedelic, alternative rock band that have been getting a lot of attention lately, largely thanks to this new single, “Everything Hurts.” It’s a delicious tune that could have appeared on Stone Temple Pilots’ Purple or Tiny Music. Or, perhaps, even Nirvana’s Nevermind. Suffice to…

  • Garbage has all sorts of sci-fi and horror-esque things happening in this new red hot video for “Magnetized” from their latest album, Strange Little Birds. I don’t know what the budget for this one was, but it looks like it cost a couple million bucks with everything that’s going on and the insane lab setting…

  • Cerrone, otherwise known as Marc Cerrone, is the guy behind Supernature, which won multiple Grammy Awards and sold over 8 million records. His new single, “Move Me” features vocals from none other than Disclosure’s Brendan Reilly, though it’s likely that you never would’ve guessed that it’s him as he morphs his voice so perfectly into…

  • “Take You Home” is the new single from Hardline’s forthcoming album Human Nature, which drops on October 14th via Frontiers, and boy is it a beauty. One of those primo piano ballads that tugs at your heartstrings the second you start listening to it and doesn’t let you go for at least an hour after…
