ball out

BoBo Swae feat. Swae Lee “Ball Out The Lot”

“Ball Out The Lot” is by SremmLife Crew member, BoBo Swae. The song, which could be a new adult club anthem, features one half of the hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd, Swae Lee. The track’s title are its opening lines with BoBo Swae talking about revisiting the club and pouring out Ace of Spades and Hennessy. But the lyrics “I love the way you shake that ass up on that pole” and “you doin’ it way too good, a million dollar tip/this what you deserve” clearly talk about having a good time at the club, with a lucky lady making a serious payday by virtue of her moves. Swae Lee has a brief appearance and does the most with it including this gem of a line “at the telly smokin’, don’t disturb.” - Eugenio Torrens
stitched up_heart

Stitched Up Heart “Catch Me When I Fall”

With their debut album, Never Alone, LA-based hard rock band Stitched Up Heart finds their footing after originally being formed in 2010. “Catch Me When I Fail” is the third track of the album and opens with singer Alecia 'Mixi' Demner’s vocals cutting through the heavy guitars and drums as a well-suited complement. According to Demner, the song is a call for help. In her words, it’s “knowing that sometimes you need those who care about you to help you through tough times in life.” This song also aims to catch a wider audience with more mainstream feel to it than other songs on the album. Eugenio Torrens

them evils

Them Evils “Untold”

A consistent drum pounding greets you for the start of “Untold,” the newest single from Them Evils’ third EP release. Them Evils is a rock trio formed on the shores of Huntington Beach, California. The group claims to be inspired by acts like Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, and Queens of the Stone Age and you can definitely hear those inspirations in “Untold,” thanks to vocalist Jordan Griffin, who sounds like Robert Plant meets Jack White. The second half of the song has some nifty guitar playing hinting at some of Them Evils’ darker material, but the song as a whole is anything but evil. In fact, it’s pretty damn good. - Eugenio Torrens

fetty wap

Fetty Wap “Make You Feel Good”

Released in August, this track opens with a chilling opening reminiscent of a twisted carousel before giving way to its female hook. It’s easy to place the voice behind “Trap Queen,” as Fetty Wap uses his Auto Tuned drawl in his verses. With its two-minute run time, no imitable liquor brand reference (1738) and limited lyrics, this song isn’t likely to make you feel as fabulous as what landed Fetty Wap on the map.   
ballin bibi Bibi Bourelly “Ballin’”

If you’ve never heard Bibi Bourelly, you might mistake her for Rihanna with the start of this song. The voices are strikingly similar but once the subject matter comes up, the difference is blinding. Part broke-college-student anthem, part “Thriftstore” homage, “Ballin’” details the effortlessness of the artist’s ability to not let her financial reality impede on her life. Losing her job at Old Navy, working at the corner store, feasting on Ramen and pushing around a Camry with the engine light is no plight for this diva. This song is a pop reminder that sometimes it’s the not-so-finer things, like a Slim Jim and a 40, are all you need to be awesome.
circles-pusha-t-desiigner-dolla

Pusha T “Circles”

Pusha T, of Clipse fame, teams up with fellow rappers Desiigner and Ty Dolla Sign to drop this track. Pusha T is the president of Kanye West’s GOOD Music label, which has Desiigner on it label. And Ty Dolla Sign has been a breakout star to the masses by being featured on hits “Work  from Home” and “Sucker for Pain.” Featuring clever word play “if we on the same accord/I’ll take you out that Honda Civic” and “Make it rain ’til it’s purple,” from both guests, this song probably won’t see major radio play but could be a club track if for nothing more than its hook.

chrysalis

Chrysalis “My Eternity” 

Chrysalis is an indie-metal rock outfit that may be a well-kept secret on the verge of being let out. Despite only clocking in at 2:50 with just a handful of lyrics, “My Eternity” packs a punch and kicks things up a few notches beyond Chrysalis’ more typical sound. The track, from Chrysalis’ forthcoming album Reminder, does an impressive job of appeasing both the indie and metal aficionados found within their fanbase.

trapt

Trapt "It's Over"

While "nu metal" as a thriving genre didn't survive, there are a handful of bands from that era who did. With a dedicated fan base in tow, these handful of bands adapted, morphed and proved to be more than simply the flavor of the day. Trapt is one such band, and the California-based quartet celebrated their 20th year in existence by releasing the album DNA. One of the standout tracks from DNA, "It's Over," is featured on the latest installments of StripJointsMusic. Though more subdued than "Headstrong," the song that broke them into heavy mainstream rock rotation in 2002, "It's Over" provides the backdrop to a breakup, one that just about anyone can relate to.

kardashian

Kody Woah “Kardashian”

A hip-hop ballad of sorts, “Kardashian” seems aptly titled as artist Kody Woah starts this track with a tickling of the ivories. The song is about upgrading anything; be it a shoddy shack to the Playboy Mansion or as the song would have it, a “basic bitch” to a “Kardashian.” He raps about his claim of making himself into something from nothing. The track is playful yet contemplative and given its relative infancy (a posting date of June 1 on YouTube) yet headline-grabbing name, the track is sure to have that Kardashian-publicity-hoarding touch. - Eugenio Torrens

against himself

Against Himself “Within”

Self-proclaimed as “hard, heavy, powerful and catchy,” on its Facebook page, Against Himself is a four-piece hard rock/metal hybrid band that formed in the fall of 2014 in Denver, Co. The track “Within” seems to be an anthem against authority with lines such as “Lies injected in all of us/We are blind/Infected/All hope is lost/The damage is done through self infliction.” While the hook and parts of the song peak aggressively, the majority of the track is a nice blend of alternative rock making the song simultaneously fierce and catchy. - Eugenio Torrens

red cafe

Red Cafe “She A Bad One”

Guyana-born rapper Red Cafe’s “She A Bad One” may have been inspired by a trip to a strip club. It’s undeniable what Red Cafe is talking about in this track with lyrics such as “Watch it dip low then it levitate/Shawty hop up on the pole and she demonstrate.” While Red Cafe has been a player in the underground rap game for approximately two decades, his mixtape “American Psycho” is sure to be recognized even by cursory genre followers, with such names as Fabolous, Jeremih, T-Pain, The Game and 2 Chainz featured on the album. “She A Bad One” also includes a verse by E-40, a previous collaborator of Red Cafe’s. - Eugenio Torrens

shamans harvest

Shaman’s Harvest “Here It Comes”

Already featured on Monday Night Football, Shaman’s Harvest’s “Here It Comes” has a very comfortable country-rock groove and big chorus. The Missouri-based outfit has been plugging away since the late 1990s, and frontman Nathan Hunt survived a bout with throat cancer as the band delivered their strongest music to date.

jeremih london

Jeremih “London”

The man behind club and hit radio mainstays such as “Birthday Sex,” “Down on Me” and “Don’t Tell ‘Em” has another potential speaker gem with “London.” The new track features Stefflon Don, Krept and Konan in this track from Jeremiah’s summer mixtape drop Late Nights: Europe. The guest stars on this song provide a more reggae feel which compliments Jeremih’s slick vocals. Among the highlights is a throwback reference to the days of ‘90s sitcoms when it slips in Mrs. Huxtable in a jarring juxtaposition to its overall suggestive content.  - Eugenio Torrens

jahkoy california

Jahkoy “California Heaven”

Toronto-based artist Jahkoy already has one album under his belt, Temptations. The rapper/singer, who cites Pharrell and Andre 3000 as influences, signed at the beginning of this year to Def Jam Recordings and his second, yet-to-be named album, will feature “California Heaven.” The track has the bass-thumping beat of any contemporary club song but features a laid-back vibe synonymous with the state it’s titled and modeled after. Indeed, the Golden State doesn’t solely serve as a name filler; parts of the song could almost be an advertisement for the state including the hook-starting verse “Heaven must be somewhere in California/No place I’ve seen compares to California.” - Eugenio Torrens

lajan haitians

Lajan Slim “Haitians”

Lajan Slim may be a Broward County, Florida product, but he has held on tightly to his roots as evidenced by the title of his breakout single. “Haitians” is riddled with words and phrases from the Caribbean island, “picklese,” “kompa,” “sak kap fet" and even the artist’s name — “Lajan" means money in Creole. The rap isn’t blisteringly fast, but it speeds by smoothly enough that this song will undoubtedly have listeners Googling the lyrics while replaying it to catch all the subtle wordplay. While it’s crammed with information, “Haitians” proves to be a top-shelf debut single. - Eugenio Torrens

Waterloo-Revival-EP-cover
Waterloo Revival “Backwood Bump
 
Their name is derived from the original moniker of the city of Austin, Texas, and their country sound is not unlike many of the bands that have come out of their home town and state. Waterloo Revival (Waterloo is Austin’s original name) is a two-man outfit, comprised of Cody Cooper and George Birge. Their track “Backwood Bump” is a tribute to great times everyone looks forward to on Friday night. It starts with steady beat and a little strumming that’ll get toes tapping and your head bobbing. The chorus boasts, ‘Spin it round, dip it down, ‘til you hear the baseline thump / Front, back, side to side, that’s how we do the Backwood Bump.’ If you’re at all inspired by feel-good country music, this one will have you moving. - Dave Manack
hellyeah

Hellyeah “I Don’t Care Anymore”

I have a confession to make (and as a card-carrying member of the metal community, it is a bonafide confession). When I was 13, one of my favorite artists was Phil Collins. It had something to do with my then-obsession with Miami Vice (this was 1985, after all). And my favorite Phil track, bar none, was “I Don’t Care Anymore.” It was stark. It was angry. It was intense. Which makes it surprising that no metal bands ever considered covering it—until now. Hellyeah, the metal “supergroup” featuring former members of Mudvayne, Pantera and Nothingface, put their stamp on the track without taking away from the original track’s emotional intensity. Pantera fans should also be extremely interested in giving this track a listen, as the song’s guitar solo was provided by none other than the late “Dimebag” Darrell, brother of Hellyeah drummer Vinnie Paul (apparently, the brothers had worked up a cover of the Collins track before Dime was murdered on stage in 2004). - Dave Manack

blackstonecherrykentuckycd

Black Stone Cherry “Soul Machine”

Though the name of their newest album is Kentucky, there’s nothing “bluegrass” about this band or their music. For the past 15 years, Black Stone Cherry has been banging out their own version of southern rock, gathering a very solid following and Billboard chart placements to boot (not to mention, they’ve topped the U.K. rock chart three times and have had sold-out U.K. tours). From this new album comes the track “Soul Machine” which sees the quartet venturing into new territories. Specifically, a horn section and female back-up singers, which definitely put the “soul” into “Soul Machine.” It has a big chorus and catchy riff, which is exactly what you’d expect from BSC. They band keeps getting bigger and bigger, so if you haven’t checked them out yet, get started with “Soul Machine.”- Dave Manack

Russ single artwork

Russ “Losin’ Control”

From the incubator that births some of the best hip hop in the country, Atlanta's latest is Russ with his single, “Losin Control.” Although a local star with 11 independent albums behind him, the rest of us are catching up with the 23-year-old rapper/singer/producer. His area of expertise is almost the complete opposite of most Atlanta trap rappers, yet his production and melodic songs remain catchy and upbeat. Think the Weeknd singing below the Mason-Dixon. For those girls that like to lap dance and chill. - Kristofer Kay

one less reason band

One Less Reason “Break Me”

Formed back in 1998, One Less Reason is a product of their time. In fact, it sounds like they're still there. A spin of their new single, "Break Me", and you'll remember the drill, too. Loud vocals until the requisite melody, tuned-down guitars, piled on angst. All reminders of when FM radio fell to the dramatically formulaic nu-rawk. Almost 20 years later metal, as moved on, some bands will remain the same. And if you liked ‘90s rock (Tonic, Matchbox 20, etc.), chances are that’s one more reason to check out One Less Reason. - Kristofer Kay

sylvia heart of

Message From Sylvia “Heart of War”

Stop-start riffs, catchy choruses and driving drums are the calling card of much of today’s “alt-metal” movement, and Message From Sylvia’s “Heart of War” has all of that in spades. Helmed by three brothers—Zach Lopez-Smith (drums) Isaac Lopez-Smith (bass) and Dane Lopez-Smith (guitar)—and fronted by DoryDrive singer Matthew Nevit, the quartet’s new track “Heart of War” is on par with the rest of the music that leads this ever-growing genre. - Dave Manack

Lil-Durk-She-Just-Wanna-Feat.-Ty-Dolla-ign-Stream-New-Song

Lil Durk ft. Ty Dolla $ign “She Just Wanna”

The familiar vocal characteristic of auto-tune has become a staple of the hip-hop club track, a sound which is delivered quite effectively by Lil Durk with his latest collaboration, “She Just Wanna.” Durk raps, Ty sings the hook, while production comes courtesy of Chopsquad DJ. The sultry jam is a no-brainer play for the strip clubs, and the lyrics are on-point as well: “Way that she twerkin’; Lil mama, she good and she perfect; I gave you my number, so work it.” - Kristofer Kay

gnarly world

Gnarly World ft. Flo Rida “Hoes In The House”

Earlier in 2016 Flo Rida had a Billboard Hot 100 hit with “My House,” which reached No. 4. Flo Rida has been releasing songs from his upcoming album The Perfect 10, including “Hello Friday,” “Who’s With Me” and on May 20, “Who Did You Love” with Arianna. This new team-up with Gnarly World on “Hoes in the House” is the latest jam, and could propel both up the Billboard charts and onto a strip club’s playlist. - Kristofer Kay

jeezy-magic-city-monday-feat-2-chainz-futue
Jeezy ft. 2 Chainz and Future "Magic City Mondays"
 
In Atlanta, the legendary urban club Magic City owns a day of the week. "Magic City Monday" by ATL local Jeezy (who's joined here by 2 Chainz and Future) salutes not only the club itself, but the culture it represents as well. While name-dropping strip clubs goes back to the halcyon days of Motley Crue, having a song with a club's name in the title—unsolicited, this wasn't commissioned—embodies how hip-hop and adult clubs co-exist symbiotically. But besides the meaning, it's a solid track too, even if your club isn't called Magic City.
timmy turner
Desiigner "Timmy Turner"

Your DJs will know Desiigner from his hit, "Panda," which dropped earlier this year and remains spun in heavy rotation during your weekend night shift. His follow-up, "Timmy Turner" (and we defy you to say that without the South Park-inspired inflection), is merely an extension of his initial offering, meaning it's "mumble rap" to the infinite power. Take away the urban yodeling that sounds as if he's running away from the bovines down in Pamplona, and you'll be left deciphering what in the hell homeboy is attempting to enunciate. Although we think we caught that some "bitch is hot on BET" on the hook.  So we have that going for us.

tove-lo-cool-girl-3

Tove Lo "Cool Girl"

Tove Lo, the songstress of Forever 21's national anthem "Talking Bodies," is back with her next single, "Cool Girl." It's the type of song that still begs the question whether or not Ms. Lo remains comfortable in that darkened place somewhere between incredulous lounge crooner and overly-ambitious opening act. Destined to play in Camrys across America on their way to the mall, "Cool Girl" can actually find a home on your club's set list since the lyrics are relatable to your entertainers, and the beat is just infectious enough to play a few times a night without reaching "Talking Bodies"-level annoyance.

heart-beautiful-broken-album-art
Heart "Beautiful Broken"
 
When Rock-and-Roll-Hall-Of-Famers, the Wilson sisters of Heart, wrote the lyrics for their new track "Beautiful Broken," it might seem unlikely that they'd be writing it about a stripper. But, when you see the lyrics, it seems impossible to ignore that this is an ode to the ladies in g-strings and stilettos. Check out these lyrics and tell me otherwise: "She's a big star, and she's burning bright/Losing her religion each and every night/She's the real thing and she'll tell you so/And lots of other things you don't wanna know/Such a drama queen, a hot mess/Underneath her temper, underneath her dress/Like a raw flame she got a secret mind/Getting your attention each and every time." Right? So I'm not crazy—the legendary Heart wrote a song about strippers. More akin to the '70s "Barracuda" Heart than the '80s "Alone" Heart, "Beautiful Broken" is a two-minute, and 35-seconds fireball that deftly showcases Ann Wilson's legendary pipes and Nancy's unmistakable guitar grooves. Dancers will identify with it, customers will dig this new track from a classic band. Win win.

they.-deep-end
THEY. "Deep End"

The word around the turntable about THEY., an LA studio collaboration between two well-known producers (Dante and Drew Love), is that they're next to breakout of the present day pop-R&B collective that borrowers elements from modern rock as much as it takes from classic soul. As a speaker-friendly mid-tempo jam, THEY.'s second release "Deep End" is all about the diving into the, shall we say, "metaphorical pools" of woman's anatomy. Easily mistaken as just another new Weeknd joint, the sly hook and easy groove of "Deep End" is more than just a passing fancy until that new Weeknd joint actually hits.
bieber-snake-2

DJ Snake (ft. Justin Bieber) "Let Me Love You"

Real quick, do you still get requests to play Skrillex and Bieber's "Where Are U Now" by dudes who should know better? Just curious, do you still car karaoke the Bieb's "Sorry"? Yeah, we thought so, too. Well look, bright side says now you have a new brand new track to refuse to like but can't go a day without spinning it, or singing it, or even escaping it. Who's DJ Snake? We don't know. Do you even care?  It's Bieber. Believe it. So it is, so it shall be.
airbourne

Airbourne “Breakin’ Outta Hell”

Fresh off their fourth studio album, Australian hard rockers Airbourne are back with their latest jam, “Breakin' Outta Hell.” Gritty as hell with a Bon-Scott-era AC/DC swagger, “Breakin’ Outta Hell” showcases exactly why many consider Airbourne to be the leaders of the next generation of hard rock. It’s retro-sounding enough for those of us who grew up on AC/DC, hair metal and Metallica, but their fan base is decidedly young enough to grasp all demographics. The Australian outfit, led by brothers Joel and Ryan O’Keeffe (vocalist/lead guitarist and drummer), have spent the past ten years establishing itself as road warriors, selling out major venues with their energetic and entertaining style of fast and furious rock.

dirty heads

Dirty Heads “That’s All I Need”

Mix a little ‘90s hip-hop with some ska punk and a casual SoCal groove, and you get a glimpse into the style and sound of the Dirty Heads track, “That’s All I Need.” The Huntington-Beach-based quintet has a sound reminiscent of their contemporaries Sublime, who also, appropriately enough, called Huntington Beach home (the band still exists as Sublime with Rome, following the passing of former Sublime frontman Brad Nowell in 1996). The band dubs it their “summertime anthem,” and it definitely has that sun’s up, top’s down, feel-good vibe. Grab a Corona and chill to this old-school-meets-new-school party rocker.

fergie milfs

Fergie “M.I.L.F $”

Fully embracing her 40s, Fergie may still be the hottest girl in the room, but she's not the youngest. Which makes the whole theme of her latest single, “M.I.L.F $” (aka MILF Money), yet one more of her butt-bouncing, confectionery byproducts—inherently strange since it is, all at once, one of the sexiest, as well as being the most sexist, songs of the summer. Take it as you will: Is it another boner-prone fantasy of what men expect older women to be? Perhaps. But look, Fergie’s music doesn't require much thought (and don’t, because it begins to hurt), so we're probably reaching too far here, but consider all the single moms out there, too. See them? They're dancing on stage right now. That's what “real” MILFs looks like. And they’re gonna love this jam. 

 
hellyeah

Hellyeah “Human

From their forthcoming album Undeniable, heavy-hitting hard rockers Hellyeah showcase a big chorus and undeniable groove with the track “Human.” It’s hard to believe that this “all-star” band, featuring ex-members of Pantera, Mudvayne and Nothingface have been together for a decade, yet here they with their fifth release as the band continues to evolve thanks to new additions Kyle Sanders (brother of Mastodon‘s Troy Sanders) and guitarist Christian Brady. Speaking about the new record, guitarist Tom Maxwell stated, “There’s a lot of new stuff coming out that we’ve never tried before, and a lot of heavy s–t … It’s gonna be moody, it’s gonna be dark, it’s gonna be crushing, it’s gonna be heartbreaking, it’s gonna be everything.”

ashes to new 

From Ashes to New “Lost and Alone

Hard rock, hip-hop-style vocals and synths collide with the Pennsylvania-based quartet From Ashes to New’s track “Lost and Alone.” Though the band often draws comparisons to Linkin Park and Hollywood Undead, it’s clear that their first proper full-length disc Day One has them aspiring to be much more. In fact, the band charges straight ahead into arena rock style, which is fitting considering their recent tour opening for Five Finger Death Punch and Papa Roach.

 Stitched Up Heart - 1 - Hristo Shindov sAKd04M.jpg

Stitched Up Heart “Monster

The vocals sound pop, the music sounds post-nu-metal. This hybrid, showcased by Stitched Up Heart, makes for an interesting combination, and it’s on full display with the track “Monster.” Vocalist Alecia "Mixi" Demner is clearly the stand-out with this LA-based outfit, whose sound and style continues to change (and most recently, draws favorable comparisons to Evanescence and In This Moment). “Monster” rocks, but it’s still very accessible for the guys and gals alike.

 bleeker

Bleeker  “Highway

After 12 years toiling away in northern Toronto and across Canada, Bleeker has gotten their big U.S. break with their album Erase You, as the track “Highway” appears on the latest installment of StripJoints. Musically, Bleeker combines a classic rock swagger with psych-tinged grooves, placing them among Royal Blood, Struts, The Black Keys, and Jet in the alt-rock spectrum.  Highway" resonates with its handclaps and garage pop vibe, and the track is uptempo from stem to stern.

 mother feather

Mother Feather “Mother Feather

An interesting mix of alt-rock grooves and glam rock style, Mother Feather is hard to pin down. With the charismatic dual vocals of Ann Courtney and Elizabeth Carena (who also works the keyboards), the NYC-based quintet can rock your face off but still be listenable and have that sexy edge you’ll get from women screaming through a catchy chorus.

kongos 

Kongos “Take It From Me”

Kongos’ “Take It From Me” is the first single off the band’s forthcoming third album, Egomaniac, set for release on June 10. The band had become known for its recognizable sound, which derives both from Western rock music as well as rhythm-based Western African music. Jesse Kongos’ heavy drumming and Johnny Kongos’ talented accordion work lay the foundations of what has come to be a trademark sound for the foursome, and “Take It From Me” finds Kongos further exploring the depths of their sound.

 og maco

OG Maco x TWRK “Do What It Do”

As one reviewer put it, if you’re planning on having a “twerk fest” some time soon, then OG Maco and TWRK have the perfect song for you with “Do What It Do.” TWRK, an electronic production crew based in NYC, teamed up with Maco for a club-oriented jam with bouncy drums, later joined by a blast of horns. And if you need further proof of its strip-club-worthiness, check out these Twain-esque lyrics: “Bounce that ass to the beat; Show me you a freak make it do what it do.”

 

 3 doors down

3 Doors Down “In the Dark

It’s been quite a while—five years, to be exact—since the alt-rockers from Mississippi cranked out a new batch of radio-ready tunes. But 3 Doors Down is back, and the track “In the Dark” (“She likes to do it in the dark,” exclaims vocalist Brad Arnold) comes from the upcoming sixth studio album titled Us and the Night. You know exactly what you’re getting with the band that brought you “Kryptonite,” “When I’m Gone” and “Here Without You.” This new one, “In the Dark,” is sleek and just sexy enough for your alt-rockin’ entertainers to groove to.

 

 robzombiewelleverybodycover

Rob Zombie Well, Everybody’s Fuckin’ in a UFO

This won't be the first time that listeners will be wondering, “what the hell is Rob Zombie sining about in this song?” But will it matter? With a title like “Well, Everybody’s Fuckin’ in a UFO,” it’s gonna get people’s attention. It’s a wild ride in the Rob Zombie wonderland, as we hear the story of a “one-eyed super wolf” who slowly comes to the realization that, “Well, Everybody’s Fuckin’ in a UFO.” Don’t try to make sense of it. Just enjoy the hillbilly rockin’ insanity.

 

 bibi-bourelly-ego

Bibi Bourelly Ego

Not going to lie, Bourelly has real deal talent. First as a songwriter (she got her start writing for Rhianna) and next as a soul singer. Armed with a bluesy, full voice that doesn't sound like it’s coming from a girl her early 20s, “Ego” is her coming out, with its braggadocio ("I won't never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever give a fuck") only undercut by the apparent skill at hand. Bourelly will have other hits, surely, but what your girls can't dance to they'll find immensely quotable.

flo-rida-dirty-mind

Flo Rida “Dirty Mind

Here we are with that “second verse same as the first” feeling. If you spun "My House" last month and wondered if Flo Rida was done supplying strip clubs with Saturday night soundtracks then fret not, dear DJ, “Dirty Mind” is a return to the typical twerk jump off. First the beat, and then the hook, now repeat with respectable Flo flow.

 

hellyeahbloodforbloodcover 638

Hellyeah “Sangre por Sangre

Vocalist Chad Gray, drummer Vinnie Paul (ex-Pantera) and company are back with “Sangre por Sangre” (blood for blood) from their fourth studio album, Blood For Blood. This metal supergroup of sorts (Gray from Mudvayne and guitarist Tom Maxwell from Nothingface, along with Paul) continues to evolve, this time with metal producer extraordinaire Kevin Churko behind the dials. The band appears to have moved completely away from the more “southern” metal stylings of earlier albums for a more focused, driving, heavy-rock approach. “Sangre por Sangre” showcases the 2016 version of Hellyeah, and it’s quite possibly the best the band has ever sounded.

 

lil durk

Lil Durk “My Beyonce

Chicago's Lil Durk isn't, nor will he ever be, New York's Jay-Z, but that won't stop him from scoring his version of Jigga's wife. Like “Boo”' or “Bae” in the urban dictionary, Beyonce is now a term of endearment for guys who find that the label of girlfriend to be, gosh, we don't know...unequivocal? Everyone wants a Beyonce, but not everyone is Hove. (Holla, bitches). Syrupy in ways we can't seem to understand, sweeter than three minutes of your average "my-hoe-is-so-bad" lyric, your younger entertainers can slow twerk to it and feel all fuzzy inside.

etf 2015

Escape the Fate “Alive

From their fifth studio album Hate Me, the tribe of hard rockers from Vegas present the track “Alive.” Despite numerous lineup shakeups over the past six years, the band has continued to evolve as they inch closer to a more “mainstream” rock sound, a departure from their early “emo,” darker roots. The chug-chug riff gives way to the big chorus; it’s a formula you’re familiar with, and it’s still effective.

ashes to new

Ashes to New “Land of Make Believe

For those who still sport a copy of Linkin Park's Hybrid Theory in your TransAm's center console, comes this Lancaster, PA nu-metal outfit who sound as earnest as a band could sound while holding on to the belief that rap-rock is still a viable sub-genre. Strictly for your girls who buy their on-stage attire at Hot Topic.
