watch: justin bieber – what do you mean

what a jam and a half from the biebs. after performing and crying at the VMAs last night, JB let loose of the official video only a couple of days after blasting our eardrums into oblivion with this tune on friday. that hair tho – i feel like i had the same cut when i was in high school too.

watch: turnover – audiotree sessions

this is straight up, probably my favorite album to drop this year. i’ve listened to it non-stop and it’s been my go-to for nearly everything. his voice is a little off in these sessions, and basically, just needed a little reverb. regardless, it makes no difference to me and the band still sounds great.


listen: foxing – the magdalene

this is the first taste of new foxing since the reissue of the albatross last year. and holy shitbutts – this is a great song.

the premiere with NPR had a few tidbits worth sharing:

I was raised in Catholic school [which] imposed a very difficult stance on the freedom of sexuality… When I lost my virginity, I felt like it was less about love and more about sin. I have really never let go of or dealt with that guilt, which made it dark to write about. I think of “The Magdalene” as a retrospective diary entry after losing my virginity.

the band’s new LP, dealer, will be out on 10/30. it should be a good one.


tour dates: TWIABP + foxing with TTNG and brightside)

the world is a beautiful place has a new LP coming out – harmlessness, coming out soon. coheadlining with them is foxing, who’s been great, and this town needs guns and brightside. hell of a tour. dates below the jump.

watch: asap rocky – every day (feat. rod stewart, miguel)

ASAP always comes correct with these videos. now his most radio friendly single from ALLA gets a visual, and it’s pretty entertaining. if anything, you can see fat flacko.
