For the first time I’m posting about a group that will be making an appearance on ABC’s Good Morning America to perform their new single. They’re called Rixton and they will be doing “Hotel Ceiling” on January 6th. Will that be worthy of programming your DVR or downloading the performance soon after? That will be up to you. There’s going to be a media feast for Rixton very soon, with a debut album out on March 3rd called Let The Road (School Boy/Giant Little Man/Mad Love/Interscope) while they’ll be on tour next year with Ariana Grande but before all of this happens, they’ll be on the 16th annual Home For The Holidays holiday special December 19th on CBS. That’s mainstream fun all around.

VIDEO: Captain Angst & The Deadly Divers’ “Haie in der Luft”

Is this one of the best hard rock songs you’ve heard in years? If you are to believe the YouTube comments for it, “Haie in der Luft” isn’t pleasing everyone but there is an audience for it. What do you think? Drop a comment. They are German band Captain Angst & The Deadly Divers and they enjoy putting on masks.

VIDEO: Diamond District’s “A Part Of It All”.

If you haven’t heard Diamond District’s new album March To Washington (Mello Music Group) (my review of which can be read by clicking here), you need to pick this up pronto. It’s easily one of the best hip-hop albums of the year and if you need some proof, check out the video for “A Part Of It All”.

AUDIO: Thee Gold Blooms’ “Katie-Sue”

They look like a band that could easily fit in with any musical era of the last 25 years but Perth’s Thee Gold Blooms are heavily influenced by the music of the 1960’s. Even the title of their song, “Katie-Sun”, may sound innocent and fancy free but the music has a bit of grit and bulk, so it’s not just bubble gum chewing and sparkles, they want to have fun with what they do and they’re very much doing it. They’re polishing up what will become their debut album, due out in January. As for “Katie-Sun”, it will be released on December 5th.

FREE DL: Dubrain Hertz’s “Das Ist Nicht Ein Holocaust”

For this song I had to find a translator to be sure the title was non-offensive. “Das Ist Nicht Ein Holocaust” translates into “This Is Not A Holocaust” and the song by Dubrain Hertz is definitely not that, as it’s somethin that could fit in a number of different locales. It may work well for video games too, it could become a multipurpose song if they are able to sell the track. Have a listen to it, a reflection of the trip hop vibe of the early to mid-90’s.

VIDEO: Ozomatli’s “Place In The Sun”

While most of the United States in the middle of cold weather or feet of snow, Ozomatli celebrate their California living by honoring what’s up in the sky with their new video for “Place In The Sun” which may be a perfect remedy for the chill some of us are going through right now.. The video was directed by Damon Vonn and is the title track of their latest album.

VIDEO: Generation Kill’s “We’re All Gonna Die”

The truth of the matter is something that’s not a secret: we’re all gonna die. The goal is to be able to maintain this existence and manage to be strong from start to finish, or at least as best as we possibly can and that’s what Generation Kill talk about in their new song that’s now a video. It is also the title track of their upcoming album on Nuclear Blast that will be out on November 26th. Pre-order below through
