Remembering Scott Weiland: A Rare Breed and True Frontman

Featured Image by Ed Vill

It was the first thing I saw when I woke up Friday morning. A headline that read more as a deeply gutting feeling with a mixture of shock and disbelief. Scott Weiland was gone. I’d only just read an interview he had done with Alternative Nation a week or so before, shedding light on everything from the Stone Temple Pilots’ early beginnings to later dysfunctions, as well as to some of the aspirations he hoped to reach again with in his new musical endeavors. There were sides to Scott many people did not see, including ...

Kurt Vile Announces Tour and New Album b’lieve i’m goin down

Source: Rock On Philly

Philly native and indie rock musician Kurt Vile has created a sixth studio album, titled b’lieve i’m goin down. This album will be a follow-up to his critically acclaimed Wakin on a Pretty Daze. His record label, Matador Records, released a promo video for the new album (shown below). Only a minute long, the video shows Vile walking alone in a southwestern desert, with a jazzy sax sound in the background. Perhaps this is a hint of what influences will appear on the album?

Vile is already heralded as a Philly superstar, even having his own holiday. ...

Taylor Swift Never Goes Out of “Style”

Source: Rock On Philly

More than just an Abercrombie & Fitch catalog set to music, Taylor Swift‘s new video for “Style” evokes the 80’s vibe of Godley & Creme, along with the cinematic excellence of John Baptiste Mondino‘s black-and-white filmmaking. All in all, it creates a powerful and stylish coming-of-age piece for Swift.

Mixing a combination of triple-A purity with the repetitive loops we’ve come to expect in Max Martin’s pop songs, Swift continues to establish a new direction for her once-country music. The song “Style” creates a nostalgic, yet current vibe that is matched by the visuals ...

Best of the B Sides: “Pretty When You Cry”

Source: Rock On Philly

I am four months behind on Rolling Stone. I’m reading about the hits of the summer and how Coachella went. The stack under my desk is getting so tall and heavy it’s difficult to move. I have never been in this much of a magazine deficit in my life.

Because of this, Lana Del Rey is on my mind yet again. Not only did I just finish reading her profile in the late July Rolling Stone (whoops), but I’m listening to Ultraviolence (2014) again. When I decided to review it, I thought I was in for a trashing, bashing, ...

Source: The Washington Post » Music

Even stoners have to grow up sometime.

In the case of Afroman, the Grammy-nominated rapper whose claim to fame is the 2001 classic “Because I Got High,” growing up means rejuvenating his weed anthem.

Afroman has released a new music video for the remix of “Because I Got High” to extol the positive properties of marijuana and advocate for the legalization of weed. He’s working alongside Weedmaps, a dispensary locator app, and the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML). The release was timed to raise awareness for marijuana legalization efforts in advance of the upcoming midterm elections. Voters in Alaska, Oregon and Washington, D.C., will decide whether to legalize recreational weed on Nov. 4. Florida will decide whether to approve medical marijuana.
