Artist To Watch: Parlement

It’s been a while since we’ve had an “Artist To Watch” but Parlement is definitely one to keep your eye on.  This Spanish rock band just released a brand new video for their song “Little Liar” and we’re loving the fresh new music just in time for Summer!

Parlement have that nostalgic rock sound from the eighties and nineties that really dig into your ribs and make you dance along.  The band, consisting of singer Stefan, guitarist Javi, drummer Carlos, and bassist Raul, blended the best of gritty garage and smooth indie rock to create an album that we’ll be putting into heavy rotation!

Watch the animated video for “Little Liar” below.

Parlement’s new album “Be Machinery/ You Oughta Be In Pictures” is now available on Amazon.

TLC Launch Kickstarter Campaign for Final Album

TLC announced they are working on their 5th and final album – but they need your help!   They launched a Kickstarter campaign today to fund the album, and are asking fans to contribute.  Why?   This way fans can be involved and TLC will maintain creative control.  As they wrote, “While major labels offer artists multimillion dollar recording and marketing budgets, they don’t often give artists complete control of their own music. It is ESSENTIAL that we create our final album completely on our own terms, without any restrictions, with YOU.”

This will be the first TLC album recorded by Chilli and T-Boz as a duo.  Like with any Kickstarter, you can get rewards for your contribution, ranging from a digital copy of the album once it’s released, to a TLC slumber party.  You can contribute to TLC’s Final Album HERE!   The campaign ends on February 19th, with a goal of $150,000.

We hear TLC might be heading out on tour soon … stay tuned for an announcement and practice singing “Waterfalls!”

Taylor Swift’s New Album “1989” To Be Released October 27th!

Taylor has been teasing us with “big news” for a few weeks now.  All was finally revealed in a Live Stream today hosted by Yahoo!   And when Taylor says big news, she MEANS it.  She kept dropping surprise after surprise, just when you thought there couldn’t possibly be any more news.  In case you missed it, here’s what you need to know!

Taylor’s 5th studio album will be released on October 27th!  The album, named “1989,” gets its title both from the year Taylor was born, and for the “late 80s pop” inspiration for the album.  That’s right: this is the first full, purely pop album from Taylor.  (Didn’t we all know it was headed in that direction?)  There will be a deluxe edition available, with 3 extra tracks, and each physical copy of the album will include 13 Polaroids.

While there isn’t a tracklisting for the album yet (she can’t reveal everything!)  You can pre-order the album on iTunes now and get an instant download of her new single, “Shake It Off.”

Taylor also performed “Shake It Off,” during the live stream.  And then she dropped the video.  Watch it below!

While we’re a little sad Taylor is leaving her country roots behind completely (her first album will always be our favorite), we’re excited to hear the next evolution of her sound.  And, as she likes to follow the same patterns, we’re pretty sure that we’ll have a date in 2015 at the Prudential Center for the “1989” Tour.  (Tour dates were the one thing she didn’t announce today…she covered literally everything else you could hope for!)  Taylor did reveal that she will be hosting a contest and giving 1,989 lucky fans the chance to win a meet & greet on tour.  Visit TaylorSwift.com for more info on how to enter!

This weekend T. Swfit will be performing at the MTV Video Music Awards.  Tune in to MTV on Sunday, August 24th at 9PM EST to watch!

Pre-Order Heffron Drive’s Debut Album “Happy Mistakes” Out September 9th!

Heffron Drive announced that their debut album, “Happy Mistakes,” will be released on September 9th!  The album was a long time coming, as band mates Kendall Schmidt and Dustin Belt have been making music together since 2008.  They put the project on hold so Kendall could join a little group named Big Time Rush, but now Heffron Drive is back in full swing.   We love that they had a fan design the album art.  Listen to their latest single, “Parallel” below!

Taylor Swift Yahoo! Livestream August 18th

After dropping several indecipherable clues last week (which all make perfect sense now, looking back), Taylor Swift finally revealed her big news.

Taylor is having a livestream on Yahoo! on August 18th at 5pm EST.  If you’re in NYC, you can enter to win a chance to attend in person!  We’re guessing (and hoping) that she’ll be announcing some news about the new album!    Which if her usual pattern continues, should be out in October.  Taylor will also be performing at the VMAs on August 24th….maybe playing some new material?

Tune into to Yahoo! on August 18th to find out!
