Jae Apollo Releases “Rock Bottom” Music Video

jae apollo OurStage member Jae Apollo isn’t just any hip-hop artist. Not only has he placed repeatedly in our Best of the Best rankings, but he’s a frequent recipient of our monthly channel Top 10 award as well. After releasing his brand new music video for “Rock Bottom,” it’s not hard to see why. After all, we did write a piece a while back comparing him to the widely hailed Jay Z. You can check out the new music video below. Like what you hear? You can download Apollo’s mixtape, Late For My Arrival, which dropped Dec. 18 right here. Continue reading ‘Jae Apollo Releases “Rock Bottom” Music Video’

Kanye West To Release ‘Yeezus’ Film In Theaters

kanye-west-i don't likeI have to admit, I haven’t been one of those swept away by the recent Yeezus phenomenon, though Kanye‘s most recent album did receive some pretty high praise, including two Grammy nominations (though according to Kanye, he definitely deserved even more nominations. Two just won’t do.)  But for those who felt Yeezus was snubbed by so few nominations, or who simply don’t want to see the album fade away, you won’t have to. Directed by Hype Williams (Belly), Kanye is bringing Yeezus to the silver screen. Unfortunately, the details are pretty scant right now, but you can check out a short trailer for the film here. Will you be seeing Yeezus when it hits theaters?

Jordan Corey: OurStage Artist Of The Week

jordan corey“A Stax Records vibe with an indie twist.” This is what Jordan Corey, our Artist of the Week, set out to achieve with her most recent recordings, and she has succeeded admirably. Truthfully, this has long been her vibe, but she just keeps getting better at it. And with the recent release of her Trilogy – a fan-funded trio of songs, each with an accompanying video – she has surpassed “throwback” to create original and insistently modern music.

James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem) Launches New Espresso Blend

lcdsoundsystemYou hear about a lot of musicians delving into strange (yet kind of quirky) ventures like beer or even hot sauce. And while those are pretty cool, James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem) has just announced a new venture that I can really get behind. A new espresso blend. Named House of Good, Murphy has partnered up with Blue Bottle Coffee Company’s founder James Freeman to collaborate on the “supremely balanced espresso.” Describing the taste, Blue Bottle says, “Its flavor profile – dried cherry, cocoa, meyer lemon – is a harmony between the voluptuous and the austere: It’s akin to the second movement of Carl Nielsen’s Symphony No. 3 – or, perhaps, to that buzzing, syncopated synth line from ’Dance Yrself Clean.’ Depends on which James you ask.”

You can get a taste  at Blue Bottle’s new shop in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn or order online. But be warned, it will run you $26 a pound.

Ayla Nereo Releases “Let It In”

AylaAyla Nereo has released an intriguing new track, “Let It In,” off her forthcoming album Hollow Bone. Although frequent concertgoers should recognize this tune from Nereo’s tour with her band Wildlight, the continually changing lyrics when performed live might make that a little tricky. Describing the experience, Nereo says ”I closed with [this song] with words that were improvised anew every single night. It was a deep practice, to stay completely open to whatever inspiration wanted to arise, and whatever words would feed the hearts that were in that particular city, in that particular venue.” Check out the track below.
