Stream Ciara’s New Single, “Body Party”

Ciara has been out of the pop limelight for a few years, but it seems she is back and more determined for success than ever with the release of her new single, “Body Party.”

Choosing to go the ballad route over an EDM-infused single, “Body Party” finds Ciara talking sex and romance over a beat produced by hip hop heavyweight Mike Wil Made It. It’s the kind of song you play with the lights turned low and hopes for setting the mood at an all time high, but I’m not sure it will go far as far as radio play is concerned. You can stream the single and decide for yourself, after the jump. Continue reading ‘Stream Ciara’s New Single, “Body Party”’

Jitta On The Track Releases “Charlie Brown” Music Video

OS Member Jitta On The Track is back once again with the visuals for his latest single, “Charlie Brown.”

Directed by Hunter Lyon, AKA the guy responsible for pretty much all Jitta’s video content, “Charlie Brown” finds the Connecticut bred rapper spitting lines while riding a school bus. There is plenty of performance footage, even a scene that includes a painting of Charlie Brown himself, but little else to be found. You can view the clip after the jump.

Dido Releases “No Freedom” Music Video

Pop crooner Dido has brought her angelic voice and knack for working with great directors to her fans this morning with the release of her new video, “No Freedom.”

Direced by Ethan Lader, the clip finds Dido singing to a lover (possibly lost) while a parade goes on outside the building they share. It’s a simple concept, but it’s made remarkable with stark visuals that match the slow-burn passion of the track. You can view the video after the jump.

Record tore Day 2013 is scheduled for April 20, and this morning we got our eyes on the latest round of confirmed releases for this special day in music.

Exclusive: Behind-The-Scenes Photos From Skinny Lister’s Upcoming ‘OS Session’

With St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, it seems only fitting that we unveil a new exclusive featuring one of our favorite jig-performing groups.

Back in January, SideOneDummy’s Skinny Lister stopped in the OurStage studios to perform a pair of songs off their recently released debut, Forge & Flagon. The performance was hands down one of the best we have ever captured, but unfortunately the turnaround time on the actual videos has been a bit longer than expected. So, to get you excited for the forthcoming videos and mp3s, we decided to release a slew of behind-the-scenes photos from our day with the band. Click below to enjoy the images and keep checking back for updates on the release of their OS Session.

Morning News Gaggle: Petty Residency, Marr and Wood, Thom Yorke’s Dance Fever

Will it be five songs from Full Moon Fever, several selections off the Greatest Hits, and the singles from the last four records?: Oh, I kid. America’s subjectively greatest rock bandTom Petty and the Heartbreakers have announced a pair of “intimate” residencies at New York’s Beacon Teater and LA’s Fonda Theater. “There’s no telling what we’ll do,” Petty says.

Smiths and Stones: Last night at the NME Awards in London, Ronnie Wood of The Rolling Stones got up with ex-Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr to perform the latter’s classic “How Soon Is Now?” It was weird and good.

Yorke’s gotta dance: In the new video for Atoms For Peace‘s “Ingenue,” Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke busts out with some moves that put his performance in the “Lotus Flower” video to shame. It is also weird and good. Atoms For Peace is made up of Yorke, Nigel Godrich, Flea, Joey Waronker, and Mauro Refosco.


Afternoon Ephemera: The Replacements Return, Dylan and Dawes, Weiland Responds, NIN News

Internet love song: Scott Weiland wonders how he can be fired from Stone Temple Pilots, and says he first heard about it in the press this morning. Rolling Stone:

I learned of my supposed “termination” from Stone Temple Pilots this morning by reading about it in the press.  Not sure how I can be “terminated” from a band that I founded, fronted and co-wrote many of its biggest hits, but that’s something for the lawyers to figure out.  In the meantime, I’m looking forward to seeing all of my fans on my solo tour which starts this Friday.

Dylan and the Dawes: Dawes announced on Twitter today that they will be opening up for Bob Dylan on his next tour. We predict backstage mayhem. Hidden Track has the dates.

New Nine Inch Nails news: Lots happening with Trent Reznor‘s venerable band lately. In addition to adding guitarist Adrian Belew (wow, cool), the lineup now includes Eric Avery of Jane’s Addiction and Josh Eustis of Telefon Tel Aviv. Now comes news of some tour dates. Spin reports the band will hit a few international festivals before kicking off an arena tour this fall.

Return of The ‘Mats: After 23 years, beloved rockers The Replacements have released a new song. It’s a Gordon Lightfoot cover (obv.) called “I’m Not Sayin’,” and it’s streaming at Pitchfork. Chris Mars, Paul Westerberg, and Tommy Stinson reunited to record a 7-inch EP called Songs For Slim, to benefit their ailing former bandmate Slim Dunlap, who suffered a stroke last year. The band pressed just 250 copies of the EP and auctioned them off to raise over $100k. Nice.

Review: Before You Exit – ‘I Like That’ EP

Bands crafting original pop music with actual instrumentation is a rare treat in this ever-crowded digital age. The ease of digital production has completed done away with the need for musical talent in many cases, but still some are fighting to bring back what some have called “real pop.” One of those groups, Florida’s Before You Exit, have just released a new EP that makes a great argument for why authentic pop music still matters in 2013. Continue reading ‘Review: Before You Exit – ‘I Like That’ EP’

Morning Press Gaggle: Boston’s New Music Festival, Skinny Lister Dates, Tyler on Fallon, Scott Weiland Axed

Phony New Kids mania has bitten the dust: Boston is finally getting its own big time festival with Boston Calling, which will be held at City Hall Plaza on May 25-26. Look for fun., The Shins, Matt & Kim, Of Monsters and Men, The National, Young the Giant, Dirty Projectors, Cults, Andrew Bird, and more, in addition to local faves Caspian and Bad Rabbits.

UK folk that won’t bring you down: Skinny Lister, the good-time English folk stompers who recently joined us for an exclusive OurStage session, have just announced a bunch of U.S. tour dates, including an astonishing seven sets at SXSW and a stop at Coachella. More from our friends at Under the Gun.

Returning to the scene: Tyler, the Creator, whose rap collective Odd Future grabbed our attention with a debut on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon back in 2011, went back to the show last night to perform “TreeHome” and “Domo 23″ with The Roots. It was something. Golf wang?

Please sit down and brace yourself for the shock before reading this news item: Alt-rock stalwarts Stone Temple Pilots have…fired Scott Weiland. Excuse me, they “terminated” him, presumably in a round of difficult downsizing. Weiland will be eligible for unemployment and will be able to stay on the band health insurance if he pays through the Cobra plan. This comes just a day after the singer promised to sing STP hits during his upcoming solo tour, slated to start March 1st.
