'Rebel Heart' and 'Wash All Over Me' have been unleashed
Yesterday we learned that a snippet of Madonna‘s new song Rebel Heart leaked its way online … then, a few hours later, the full song made its way online … along with another new song, Wash All Over Me, that also leaked in full (all of this music leaking is happening while Maddy and family are in Malawi for the Thanksgiving holiday). Altho I’ve been asked to remove the Rebel Heart snippet from the site, both songs are out there for your listening pleasure. It’s unknown where these leaks are coming from but considering how low quality the production sounds on both, I am finding it harder to believe that the leaks are intentional. More »
From the new album 'VS. (Other People’s Heartache Pt. III)'
Bastille are readying the release of a new album and today we get to hear the collab with did with HAIM titled Bite Down. In all honesty, even tho I like some of their songs, I’m not the biggest fan of either Bastille or HAIM. BUT, I do like this new track … and it does make me want to hear more from both bands. My friend Darion attended the recent Bastille concert here in LA and he raved about the show. If they continue to put out music like this, I’m bound to become a full fledged fan. Have a listen above of Bite Down (Bastille vs. HAIM) and see if you love it.

LQ snippet of demo music ahead
A few hours ago, a Thanksgiving miracle happened when a low quality snippet of new MADONNA music leaked its way to the Internets, giving us our first listen of Maddy‘s new song Rebel Heart. For months now, Madonna has been teasing Rebel Heart on her social media accounts with the hashtag #rebelheart and at long last, we get a taste of the song itself. NOW, let’s understand … this first listen of the song is a very low quality portion of what sounds like the demo (eg. unfinished) version of the song. Click below, have a listen … before it inevitably gets yanked offline. More »
Their new album 'Four' is the second-largest sales debut of the year

Last night I met up with my friend Eileen for a dinner hang at the Cat & Fiddle Pub in Hollywood (which is closing in a few weeks, I’m sad to say) before I met up with my friend Josh at the Echoplex in Echo Park to see live concert performance of some of the songs from Schoolhouse Rock. Now, I realize that all y’all under 30s probably have no idea what Schoolhouse Rock is or how important it remains to a generation of people but I can assure you, last night’s show was very impactful for me. Dinner with Eileen and the show with Josh conspired to make a Monday night that I won’t soon forget. More »
Last week we got to hear a tiny snippet of Ariana Grande‘s new holiday single Santa Tell Me and today we get to hear the song in full. I must admit that I wasn’t too terribly impressed with the clip that we previewed last week but I think the song works better when you hear it in full. It’s a cute song, nothing too monumentally extraordinary … but I think it’s a nice little song that might be a welcome addition to your holiday party playlist. Have a listen, see what you think. Are you feeling Ariana‘s holiday jam?
