“Africa” (Single) by Weezer

Artist: Weezer
Title: “Africa” (Single)
Label: Crush Music/Atlantic Records
Release Date: 5/29/2018
Genre: Rock
Rating: 5/5

Before I begin this one I should make an admission that I cannot for the life of me remember when the last time that I actually sat down and listened to Weezer was. This is not a hater thing so please don’t come “Undone” about the matter (sorry cheap joke for sure), but the truth is I was listening to much heavier stuff at the time of their emergence. Sure they might have looked just like Buddy Holly but their sound was more for the friends I had playing covers in bars than my own which brings us to the here and now. The other day I was tipped to the bands cover of the megahit “Africa” which was oritgnally done by the legendary Toto. With this being a favorite track of all time I just had to give it a listen and here are some thoughts about it.

Here’s Tallah’s Official Video For “Placenta”

It was only a couple of months ago that we first shared the news about a new band that had been formed by drummer Max Portnoy (Son Of Mike) and Justin Bonitz who is cited as being a YouTube sensation. The band is called Tallah and if you missed that report please click HERE to examine in. Now, as May gets into full swing we get the official video from their first single with “Placenta”. Take a look.

“Fun, Fun, Fun” (Single) by Beach Boys w Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

Artist: Beach Boys
Title: “Fun, Fun, Fun” (Single)
Label: Capitol Records
Release Date: 5/10/2018
Genre: Rock/Classical
Rating: 4/5

Over the years we’ve found many of our favorite Rock bands doing albums and live concert experiences with classical orchestras and while some of them had been extraordinary to listen to there have been others that seemed like they were simply following the trend and are to be avoided. As a writer about the heavier side of music my two first favorites fall to the KISS and Metallica offerings and these have led me to the recently released single by the legendary Beach Boys. I don’t think I need to explain the inclusion of such a group on our pages because I’ve aimed at expanding our focus to other notable names when there was a chance to do so for a while now. Now while they were before so many of our times (yes mine as well people), I did still grow to appreciate many more worlds of melody thanks to their most amazing hits so let’s discuss just what the first single “Fun, Fun, Fun” by the Beach Boys with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is shall we?

Ghost’s Press Conference @ Irving Plaza (4/30/2018)

It was probably the earliest that I had found myself deploying for an event outside of something like the Toy Fair, but when Ghost announced that a Press Conference would be taking place in NYC at our own Irving Plaza (see that news HERE), I knew that I had to be on point no matter how much coffee was needed to make this happen.

The marquee of the venue that we know so well got right to the point about their being a special sermon by Papa Nihil and Sister Imperator.  Sister is the one we see in all of their propaganda videos.
