Craft Recordings proudly announces the 50th anniversary of Creedence Clearwater Revival. It was in the summertime half a century ago that CCR, a group that would reach sky-high success while retaining a resolutely rootsy, earthbound sound, released their debut album. This marked the beginning of an incredible legacy that was formed over just four years of unbridled creative output (1968-1972).
As announced back in April, 311 and The Offspring are hitting the road for the Never-Ending Summer Tour with Gym Class Heroes. Well, it looks like the tour hit a bit of a glitch. While 311's Nick Hexum and The Offspring's Dexter Holland were hanging with Adam Carolla for an interview, 311's P-Nut and The Offspring's Noodles got pulled over by none other than the Super Troopers. Check out the video evidence below!
Cool Kickstarter Features are promoted/sponsored looks at crowdfunding campaigns of note...
The 90s were a strange and wonderful time, and for me, the highlight of my personal music growth. While I've always considered myself to be "musically schizophrenic," the 90s are largely to blame - an era when grunge, industrial, the big band revival, nu metal and "third wave" ska came into play. The latter is being explored in a new documentary, Pick It Up! - Ska in the '90's, and film that's already building excitement by becoming fully-funded on Kickstarter in just 7 days (121% funded with 27 days to go, as of this writing). Check out the trailer and details below, and if you dig it - you can still get involved. They've opened up new perks and goals that will help the filmmakers craft the best film possible.
#TrumpKimSummit: United States Officially Releases Propaganda Video while Donald Trump & Kim Jong-un form Nuclear Power Trio...Written by James Zahn
As prophesied last July, Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un have come together in Singapore for a historic meeting - the first between a North Korean Dictator Leader and a sitting U.S. dictator-wannabe President. The Trump-Kim Summit took place earlier today, and in a shocking twist, the duo recruited Dennis Rodman Mike Tyson to become the NUCLEAR POWER TRIO. Believe me, even though the band says "It's a song to promote world peace!" it is not the weirdest thing you'll see today, but I have that too.
The Gods must be crazy... I was browsing Spotify out on my deck this past Friday afternoon, taking a scroll through all the new releases when I stopped on Weezer - "Rosanna." My friend Shaun turned to me and asked, "Weezer covered Toto?" Within a few seconds, our kids' playdate was soundtracked by the smooth sounds of Rivers Cuomo and the crew covering the lead single from Toto's 1982 album, Toto IV. Entertaining, yes - but not exactly the Toto cover that Weezer fans had been asking for. Well, all was made right this morning with the release of "Africa." Listen to both below...
Houston-raised, LA-based rock/rapper HYRO THE HERO first hit my radar nearly a decade ago. I distinctly recall covering his 2011 debut album "Birth, School, Work, Death" for another site (shuttered around the same time), but seven years later Hyro is back! Set for release on June 29, 2018 via RED Music / SONY, Flagged Channel puts HYRO THE HERO back in the spotlight with his crushing blend of hip-hop and rock. Check out the new music video for the lead single, "Bullet" and crank it up!
