Daily Round-Up For September 30, 2013
Hello dearest readers! Welcome to the Daily Round-Up, redOrbitâ€™s best assortment of all the latest and greatest music news of the day! Letâ€™s take a look at the headlines.
One of the most fun things that the Dancing Astronaut does is their DAâ€™s Best of Instagram series. Where else could one find a compilation of all their favorite DJâ€™s and pictures from the crazy lives they live? This week is just as good as ever, with some awesome pictures from Afrojack, Steve Angello, and Atrak. Check it out at the Dancing Astronaut.
A boss over at BBCâ€™s Radio 1 has been quoted as saying the music of Green Day and Muse isnâ€™t good enough to be played on-air. Whether or not his statements are actually true, people might take offense with the fact that he made them in the first place. Expect some backlash from his comments. You can read them in full back at Consequence of Sound.
I honestly cannot wait for My Name Is My Name, the new album from Kanye Westâ€™s protÃ©gÃ© Pusha T. From the album cover to all the promotional song to the new music video for his new track King Push, everything the man has put out looks to be amazing. And we know itâ€™s Kanye West approved. But when I heard that King Push had a feature from the actor and musician Joaquin Phoenix, like most before me, I lost it. This album is going to be so cool. Check out the music video at Oh So Fresh.
The Dancing Astronaut also does something cool that they call their Sunday Morning Medicine series. Every Sunday, they premiere a new collection of tunes designed to soothe, relax, and rejuvenate any listener after a long and tiring weekend of fun. So if youâ€™re still feeling the effects of your Sunday on this Monday, then do yourself a favor and take a listen to this playlist! You can find it back at the Dancing Astronaut.
And in some of the biggest news of the week, Arcade Fire has finally premiered a good bit of their new music, all of which will be featured on their new record Reflektor. The band played a couple of songs for the season premiere of Saturday Night Live, and NBC followed that up with a 30-minute concert film/documentary. You can find all of that content in its entirety, in addition to a few bonuses, back at Consequence of Sound.
