The Districts have announced their forthcoming new album Popular Manipulations, which set for an August 11th release date via Fat Possum.

Combined with that announcement, the band have shared the visual for their single, “Ordinary Day,” which premiered on Noisey.

It’s all a bit eerie and you’ll find yourself feeling that heartache in the climax of the scene.

Check out the video above. Below you’ll find the cover art for the new album. Continue Reading

Luis Fonsi ft. Daddy Yankee & Justin Bieber – “Despacito” (REMIX)

posted by Ellena Rodriguez April 17, 2017

Ay dios mío Justin Bieber…. The Canadian pop singer definitely brought back ‘Bieber Fever’ to all the Latinas out there as he took a turn by singing in Spanish. It was a risky decision as Bieber tends to receive hateful and negative backlash, but (if you ask me) it worked oh so perfect. With the help of Puerto Rico’s finest, Daddy Yankee, the two are now featured on Luis Fonsi’s smash hit “Despacito”.

Check out the remix of “Despacito” down below!

posted by Miguelini April 14, 2017

This is not a hoax, Cash Carti has finally dropped his first full project and in doing so, has supplied all his eager fans with new music to do ignant shit to. In the last few years Carti has risen to underground stardom with standout tracks like “Broke Boi” and “Fetti” and eventually linking up with A$AP Rocky’s crew and dropping notorious tracks such as “Vlone Thug” and “What”, even getting featured on A$AP Mob’s Cozy Tapes. However, without a full tape of his own to bump, his listeners have felt a void in their hearts for a long time. Well the wait is over and Carti has featured some real talent on this one; Lil Uzi is on two songs that were released prior as singles, A$AP Rocky is on “New Choppa”, and not to mention that Pierre Bourne produced six amazing beats on the project.

Press play below and let us know if it was worth the wait!

Video: Eddie Vedder Sings Jingle in Chicago Cubs Commercial

posted by Oscar April 2, 2017

Lifelong superfan Eddie Vedder appears in a new commercial for the Chicago Cubs. In the clip, the lead singer of Pearl Jam gets recruited by Cubs players Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo to craft the jingle for their fictional Bryzzo Souvenir Company. The jingle actually rocks, so it’s safe to say that Bryzzo did become a thing, Vedder’s jam would surely help the likes of Addison Russell, Kyle Schwarber, and Javi Baez a boost in their souvenirs sales.

Chance The Rapper Launches New Chance Arts and Literature Fund for CPS, Chicago Bulls Will Donate $1 Million

posted by Oscar March 31, 2017

Daaaaamn Chano, back at it again with another initiative to help the children of Chicago! Chance The Rapper has held another press conference today in Chicago at Paul Robeson High School, during which he announced the launch of Arts and Literature Fund for Chicago Public Schools.

Previously, Chance announced a $1 million donation for Chicago Public Schools (CPS), using his nonprofit Social Works to hold a running campaign calling for more donations. For every $100K they raise, $10K will go to a specific Chicago public high school or elementary school. Donate here.

At today’s event, Chance delivered the news that since the previous conference he has raised $2.2 million for CPS, including contributions from Scooter Braun (AKA Kanye West’s & Justin Bieber’s manager) and Hannibal Buress. The biggest revelation on that front was the fact that the Chicago Bulls have matched the $1 million originally brought to the table.

Chance also announced the launch of the New Chance Arts and Literature Fund, which “will bring arts programs and materials to schools.” In a collaboration with the Children’s First Fund and in partnership with Ingenuity, the fund will be investing resources directly into CPS starting at the beginning of the upcoming 2017-2018 school year.
