Rock it Out! Blog: “The Best Mashup of All Time!” | New Music Releases and Reviews | Scoop.it

Some mashups are pedestrian, most others are garbage. But occasionally, one comes along that’s just absolutely brilliant. On today’s Rock it Out Blog!, we celebrate such a piece of music — the mashup of Nine Inch Nails’ “Head Like a Hole” and Carly Rae Jepson’s “Call Me Maybe” (!) — and ask what other rock songs would you’d want to see mashed up with pop songs. Let us know down in the comment section.

Album Review: James Blake – Overgrown

Album Review: James Blake – Overgrown | New Music Releases and Reviews | Scoop.it

Some people were born with the innate ability to seduce. Some can do it with their looks, others with words or behavior. In addition to having really good hair, James Blake can seduce with his voice. His lithe, melodic croon entangles perfectly with elegant electronic arrangements — a distinct style that gives Blake room to move around as a songwriter. He’s always tweaking and evolving his sound, which makes every release an anticipated occasion for fans of nu-R&B and post-dubstep.

Ten Ridiculous Parodies of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon | New Music Releases and Reviews | Scoop.it

This past Sunday, Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon turned 40, and to be honest, the record has been analyzed to death. Between the essays, exhausting fan interpretations, and comments from the band members themselves, we’d be hard-pressed to contribute any further meaningful insight to the psychedelic rock ‘n’ roll masterpiece.
