Activists To Stage Protest At Reading Music Festival Over McDonald’s Chicken Nuggets

As part of a promotional campaign at this year’s Reading music festival, going down this weekend, August 23-25, it was reported that McDonald’s would be giving away free chicken Mcnuggets. Awesome, right? Not to everyone. The Humane League, an international nonprofit organization that works to end the abuse of animals raised for food, penned an open letter to the festival organizers announcing they would be protesting the campaign. They cite allegations of poor animal welfare and negative climate impacts stemming from McDonald’s. “At a time when other festivals are taking steps to…

David Guetta Releases Tribute Remix To Avicii “Heaven” with Morten

A David Guetta remix of “Heaven” by Avicii has been rumored for quite some time, but the French producer finally revealed yesterday that it was coming. I’ve wanted to do something to honor Avicii for quite a long time, but was waiting for the right moment. After I heard ‘Heaven’ for the first time I was blown away by the sound, the lyrics and the vocals from Chris Martin. What makes it extra special is that Chris Martin has always been a big inspiration with Coldplay for both Tim and…

Breathe Carolina Remix Smash Mouth Classic “All Star” for 20th Anniversary

I think it’s safe to say that “All Star” by Smash Mouth was a major part of any ’90s kid’s life. Originally released in 1999, the song is most famously featured in 2001’s “Shrek,” but has been used in dozens of other movies. Smash Mouth themselves have become a bit of a meme over the years, even beyond the auspices of the song itself. Now, Interscope/UMe is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the seminal classic with today’s release of a new remix by electronic duo Breathe Carolina. It might seem hard to…

Smino returns with new song “Reverend”: Stream

Smino is back to serve up his first solo song of the year. Titled “Reverend”, it picks up right where the Midwest rapper left off on 2018’s NØIR. “I walk in this bitch like I bought it,” Smino raps, flowing so confidently one can easily picture the MC swaggering about, puffed up chest and all. “This floss I inherited, they never taught it.” (Read: Chance the Rapper Joins Smino Live at Lollapalooza) The track was produced by PROXVZN and Manso Beats and comes courtesy of Zero Fatigue/Downtown/Interscope Records. Hear it…

Premature Evaluation: Taylor Swift Lover

The imperial phase always ends. That period — the time when an artist has such a firm grip on the zeitgeist that she can take the entire listening public wherever she wants — can last for years, but it will never last forever. Every hugely popular artist in history has a dropoff point, a time when the world moves on to something else. That moment can be awkward and ugly and humiliating, and it can also be liberating. Because once you’re past the imperial phase, you can do what you…

GoodSex Get Spicy On “With Friends” Vol 2

After dropping “Glow” last month, GoodSex are back now with their With Friends, Vol 2 EP. The EP follows up Vol. 1 released in 2018, bringing back fan-favorite Trance Thompson as well as a host of new collaborators. Beginning with “Glow,” the 5-track EP goes through a variety of styles and sounds that all equate to “fun.” “Frequency” in particular is a song that took a long time to grow on me, with that admittedly harsh lead synth in the drop. However, after being encouraged to stick it out and listen through…
