Chvrches, Every Eye Open

Chvrches…the best thing to come out of Scotland since, like, well, ever. The trio from Glasgow have been dominating indie pop charts and airwaves since the end of 2012 with the release of their first single “The Mother We Share” culminating the release of their first full-length album The Bones of What You Believe in 2013. And after touring for what feels like forever and cultivating zillions of new fans in the process, Chvrches are finally back with some new material. And thankfully avoiding the sophomore slump, their new material doesn’t disappoint. Check out the video for “Leave A Trace” below! Every Open Eye is available for download on Friday, September 25th.

As all of the adult’s on the island Marin lives on prepare for the darkness, practicing mysterious rituals Marin and her twin brother can’t understand, it’s up to Marin and her twin to investigate the disappearance of their friend Line and find him before before all goes dark.

Big Grams EP

In a super group pairing that perhaps no one could’ve ever predicted yet we somehow still should’ve seen coming, Big Boi (the half of OutKast that isn’t Andre 3000) and Phantogram (indie electro smooth samplers supreme) have teamed up to form Big Grams, and the combo has sparked big buzz throughout the music industry. The sickly sweet jams created by Big Boi and Sarah and Josh of Phantogram sound like what I can only imagine it would be like if Motown was on Instagram, proving genre ain’t no thing, and all that matters is the groove. Their self-titled debut EP is out Friday, September 25th. Check out the first single “Fell in the Sun”!

Scream Queens

Check out a sneak peek below!!! Premieres on FOX on Tuesday, September 22nd.

Skylar Spence, Prom King

Do you want to meet the future (prom) king of dance pop before he becomes the king of dance pop? Check out the new album from Skylar Spence (FKA St. Pepsi). With a smattering of singles and EPs released since 2013, Prom King marks the 22-year-old’s first full-length. You probably are familiar with last summer’s “Fiona Coyne,” which, not to worry, made the cut onto Prom King. But there are some new tracks rounding out Prom King like “Affairs” and “I Can’t Be Your Superman.” Prom King is out Friday, September 25th.
