Listen to the "Majesty" of GHOST...

Now this is a great way to kick-off a Friday! After getting repeated compliments online and off yesterday for my GHOST t-shirt, this day has begun with an email alerting me to the release of "Majesty" - the latest single to come forth from MELIORA, the third album by GHOST. There's some melodies and tone in here that make this one feel like a sonic sequel to "Cirice," and that's certainly not a bad thing. Papa Emeritus III and The Nameless Ghouls will release their new record on August 21st via Loma Vista Recordings.  Listen to "Majesty" below...

Becoming a parent changes you - and although it's cliche to say that, it's completely true. I'm an example of that, and no matter what your age (I was almost 33 when we had Addie), there's "growing up" involved when it happens for the first time. While I became "The Rock Father" in 2009, this site wasn't here yet, and although everything may have appeared just perfect - the first year was actually pretty hard from an emotional standpoint and some changes in lifestyle and scheduling had to happen. MACKLEMORE is experiencing some of that right now, his daughter born on May 29th - just over two months ago. Today he and Ryan Lewis released a new single as a free download - a single that is for Sloane Ava Simone Haggerty - but also being offered to all of us - music and words that will most certainly resonate with parents. It comes with a note (available here), and the total package has really moved me - his voice sharing wisdom with his little girl, but also trying to find balance between the work he has to do to support his family. Listen to MACKLEMORE & RYAN LEWIS - "Growing Up (Sloane's Song)" featuring ED SHEERAN below...

It's official: Papa Emeritus III has been crowned, and GHOST will release their third album, MELIORA on August 21st via Loma Vista Recordings. Sure, some call them "gimmicky," but I care not about that - they're probably my favorite current band right now, and I can't get enough. Check out their just-released new single, "From the Pinnacle to the Pit" below - and get it as an instant download with pre-orders of the new record on iTunes or Amazon. So groovy...

Today I have an interesting one for you, the debut single from the Brooklyn-based band, Nevāda Nevada. "Anger Tango," (streaming below) is available now on iTunes and other digital retailers, a taste of what listeners can expect when their full-length WILD & GLOWING sees release somewhere down the road. The haunting track strikes with throwback familiarity - a multi-layered approach to it's instrumentation. There's a lot going on, and it sorta strikes me as the potential title theme for a non-existent indie-rock JAMES BOND film with a Shirley Bassey-vibe to the vocals. Check it out below and see what you think...

What a great way to start the week... FAITH NO MORE have just unleashed the second single from their forthcoming SOL INVICTUS (out May 19 on Reclamation/Ipecac), and they picked the perfect partner to do it with - MARVEL. "Superhero" popped up over on MARVEL.com yesterday, racking up over 107K streams for the song in just 24 hours - a welcome feat for a band that hasn't released an album since 1997. The track debut came alongside Ryan Penagos' interview with FNM Bassist Bill Gould (read it) in which some serious love for Jack Kirby and the Silver Surfer are thrown down.  Check out the track, and keep on reading below...

THE OFFSPRING sorta came out of nowhere today with the release of a brand-new single, "Coming For You." Streaming below in a "photo" video, the song is available direct from the band's webstore, along with iTunes, and should be available on all the usual digital retailers in the near future. THE OFFSPRING's next show announced takes place on April 4 in Tempe, AZ, and further tour dates have been promised...
