Michigan-based Stepdad have just released a poppy new EP entitled Strange Tonight. This catchy as hell four-track EP also packs a punch, in true Stepdad form. An underground fan favorite since 2009, the band has toured with the likes of Fitz & The Tantrums, Reptar, Passion Pit, and are vets of the Vans Warped Tour. They also make frankly delightful videos. Check out the EP below and let us know your thoughts. (more…)
Gossamer divided some fans, but those that enjoyed it have often noted “Cry Like A Ghost” is one of the record’s more emotional tunes. It’s a clear single choice, with an infectious chorus and waves of synth layers that all but force your body to dance when their played, but still a head turner given the somewhat downer subject matter. The video reasons this, sort of, by offering visuals of quiet moments and all-out dance parties. It’s a good fit that fans are sure to enjoy. You can view the video for “Cry Like A Ghost” at the end of this post. (more…)
Indie-electro-pop-etc. duo Matt & Kim have released a behind-the-scenes short documentary entitled Lightning Tour, which follows the band during the course of their headlining 2012 US tour. It’s fun, it’s funny, and it’s below for you to view at your leisure.
Meanwhile the band is currently on the road with Passion Pit. This rather huge tour hits Madison Square Garden (hot damn!) and crosses the country before Matt & Kim head to Ultra Music Fest in March. See tour dates after the jump.
Making their mark on the Twilight saga, alongside Feist, Passion Pit, and Nikki Reed, Green Day have revealed their gritty, footage-filled, love song tribute/video to Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part Two. Combining clips from the film, alongside footage of Green Day’s performances and recordings, “The Forgotten” drifts in and out of somber melodies, taking a break from the more aggressive tracks the band has been churning out as of late.
Check out the song right here and give us your thoughts on the Green Day/Twilight collaboration.
