Future Hit: Sheppard’s “Geronimo” Is Almost Offensively Catchy

571f113014d86b542c643f3c2999d526 Future Hit: Sheppard’s “Geronimo” Is Almost Offensively Catchy

There’s catchy and then there’s “Geronimo”. Australian indie-pop collective Sheppard unleashed the unstoppable sing-a-long anthem at home earlier this year and scored their first number one hit (a rare feat for an independent act) and eventually sold triple platinum. The runaway smash soon caught the attention of overseas labels and the band is now a priority for Republic Records in the US.

So what makes “Geronimo” so irresistible? Well, the giddy pop anthem has hooks upon hooks and the kind of chorus that gets lodged in your head from the very first listen. It will be interesting to see if the song clicks over here but it would be unwise to bet against it. Check out the colorful “international” version of the video above and the original Australian version after the jump.

Will “Geronimo” work in America? Have your say in the comments below.

Angus & Julia Stone Unveil Melodic Rick Rubin-Produced Groove “Grizzly Bear”: Listen

90cb623cc15fffadf654eeec2d7f4906 Angus & Julia Stone Unveil Melodic Rick Rubin Produced Groove “Grizzly Bear”: Listen

Angus & Julia Stone have unveiled another gorgeous cut from their self-titled third LP (due August 1 on Republic Records). The Australian brother and sister duo snagged legendary producer Rick Rubin to helm the album and his raw, less-is-more approach is very evident on “Grizzly Bear” — a melodic groove that channels ’70s Fleetwood Mac.

“Yeah I seen you there, lookin’ all pretty when you brushed your hair,” sings Angus over breezy guitar and warm keys. Julia then joins him on subtle but insistent chorus (“Can I take you home? We can go anywhere you want to go”). It’s softer and prettier than buzz track “Heart Beats Slow” and every bit as intoxicating as official lead single “A Heartbreak”. Listen after the jump.

Lana Del Rey Is A Disheveled Bride In The Latest Still From Her “Ultraviolence” Video

cf987f167ce4bdf2e1a7e02d27a1ec93 Lana Del Rey Is A Disheveled Bride In The Latest Still From Her “Ultraviolence” Video

Lana Del Rey‘s Ultraviolence era got off to a slow start — at least, visually — with her atmospheric but generally underwhelming “West Coast” clip. She turned things around with the wonderfully seedy saga that accompanied “Shades Of Cool” and the 28-year-old looks set to deliver yet again with her Nabil-directed “Ultraviolence” video.

The Complex cover girl shared a black-and-white still from the extravaganza on Instagram and she appears to be dressed as a bride. Only, Lana looks a little worse for wear, which would tie in with the bleak ballad’s disturbing lyrics (“he hit me and it felt like a kiss”). It will be interesting to see if the video tackles the domestic violence references head on or takes a more subtle approach. The visual is said to be “coming soon”.

Are you excited for Lana’s “Ultraviolence” video? Let us know in the comments below.

Questlove Defends Iggy Azalea, Calls “Fancy” A “Game-Changer” & “The Song Of The Summer”

65fdd2e8a7932f6b8a89dfe42fc18a9c Questlove Defends Iggy Azalea, Calls “Fancy” A “Game Changer” & “The Song Of The Summer”

Questlove has defended Iggy Azalea in a new interview with Time magazine, calling “Fancy” a game-changer for hip hop. He also labelled it the song of the summer. The Roots drummer, who is producing a new live music TV show called SoundClash for VH1, was asked about the avalanche of criticism leveled against the Australian rap diva for everything from her accent to alleged appropriation of black culture.

“We as black people have to come to grips that hip-hop is a contagious culture,” he said about Iggy’s eight week stint at number one on the Billboard Hot 100. “I will say that ‘Fancy,’ above any song that I’ve ever heard or dealt with, is a game-changer in that fact that we’re truly going to have to come to grips with the fact that hip-hop has spread its wings.”

As for the femcee’s southern accent? “I’m not going to lie to you, I’m torn between the opinions on the Internet,” Questlove admits. “The song is effective. I’m in the middle of the approximation of the enunciation. Part of me hopes she grows out of that and says it with her regular dialect — I think that would be cooler. But, yeah, ‘Fancy’ is the song of the summer.”

Nile Rodgers’ “Do What You Wanna Do”: Watch The Lyric Video For The Music Legend’s Funky Single

154715038c72d7f4f09bbbe6a6354363 Nile Rodgers’ “Do What You Wanna Do”: Watch The Lyric Video For The Music Legend’s Funky Single

Over the past year we’ve heard Nile Rodgers bust some funky guitar licks on new music released by Daft Punk, Avicii, Chase & Status, Tensnake and, collectively, Disclosure, Sam Smith and Jimmy Napes. Now we’ve finally got a new offering from the music legend featuring himself and, well, nobody else. (Guess we’ll still have to keep waiting for that epic track Rodgers’ promised would feature “almost everybody that’s ever sung with” him.)

As Rolling Stone explained upon premiering the song earlier this month, “Do What You Wanna Do” was recorded by Nile and auctioned off (to the label Cr2 Records) to benefit the musician’s We Are Family Foundation. Now there’s a lyric video to go along with the irresistible disco party jam.

Hoist up the glitter ball and take in Nile Rodgers’ latest foray into pop magic above.

Pitbull Teams Up With John Ryan On “Fireball”: Listen To The First Single From ‘Globalization’

c90e0b6b987d08650c82985a75dc1aa9 Pitbull Teams Up With John Ryan On “Fireball”: Listen To The First Single From ‘Globalization’

Pitbull is coming for your dignity — yet again — with another extremely catchy single that you’ll blast on high volume when no one else is around. “Fireball” is actually something of a change of pace for Mr. Worldwide after a pair of female-voiced, acoustic-flavored club-bangers (“Timber” and “Wild Wild Love”). Singer/songwriter John Ryan takes over vocal duties this time around and the party jam has a distinct world music twist.

As with most Pit anthems, “Fireball” boasts a killer chorus, a plethora of catchy hooks and lyrics about partying with sexy ladies.  ”I saw, I came, I conquered,” he raps cheekily. “Or should I say — I saw, I conquered, I came?” Clever and classy. The party-starter is billed as the lead single from Mr. 305′s forthcoming 8th studio album Globalization. I guess that means “Wild Wild Love” didn’t make the cut? Listen to Armand’s latest after the jump.

Does Pitbull have another hit on his hands? Let us know in the comments below.

Note to self: Score an invite to the next Union J house party.

After debuting “Tonight (We Live Forever)” (out August 17), the lead single from their upcoming sophomore record due out later this year, the fab foursome known as Union J have at long last dropping the accompanying visual for their euphoric summer anthem.

And what better way to demonstrate the true meaning of living it up and YOLO-ing the night away than by packing a bunch of attractive strangers into a big apartment full of balloons, disco balls and neon lights? There is no other way, really.

The Director X-helmed clip sees the guys getting crazy and raging with their friends — taking photos, getting sassy with a drag queen, yelling and dancing around like madmen. Of course, all that partying eventually causes the sound to cut out, but fear not — the boys know how to carry the tune a capella. And from there, the party just keeps on going all night long.

Watch the boys get wild up top, and let us know what you think in the comments below.

Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! “Weird Al” Yankovic’s ‘Mandatory Fun’ Becomes His First #1 Album

bc011b95cd8957b5dcd6d297d8e5b863 Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! “Weird Al” Yankovic’s ‘Mandatory Fun’ Becomes His First #1 Album

Whatever magical potion of longevity “Weird Al” Yankovic bathes in (we’re referring to his career here, sickos), it’s certainly doing the trick. The curly-weaved pop comedian chucked out eight music videos for songs off his new LP Mandatory Fun over eight days starting last week, and the resultant payoff is the first chart-topping album of Yankovic’s 31-year music career.

In total, Mandatory Fun sold 104,000 copies in its first week out of the gate, i.e. double the amount of what last week’s chart-topping album, Sia‘s 1000 Forms Of Fear, moved — a sure sign, music lovers, that the Alpocalypse is indeed nigh.

See where the rest of this week’s movers and shakers wound up in the upper tier of the Billboard 200 below.
