SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) is a bill up for vote that if passed would be among the most heavy handed and unreasonable anti-piracy laws on the planet – and that from a country that is supposed to be among the most free.
AWOLNATION – “Sail”
Awesome song by Red Bull Records’ AWOLNATION, the video for it plays out like a spooky late 80s/early 90s horror movie (also: sort of reminiscent of this one epic Celine Dion video.)
JESS3’s Favorite Beatles Songs
It was 31 years ago today that one of music’s greatest innovators was taken too early. JESS3 remembers John Lennon by sharing our favorite song or lyric by The Beatles as a tribute to his memory and to those that share his vision.
tUnE-yArDs – “Bizness”
Though it’s nearly 8 months old, this early Spring release from Merrill Garbus’ project tUnE-yArDs, with its joyous beat and colorful, eccentric video is still one of our favorites from this year.
Childish Gambino – “Heartbeat”
NYC radio station Hot 97 premiered the newest track off of Childish Gambino’s new record Camp last week. If you haven’t heard of Childsh Gambino, you may have heard of the artist by his real name: Donald Glover, a comedian most well known for his role of Troy on NBC’s Community.

Yelawolf + Slaughterhouse + Shady – “Shady 2.0 Cypher”
Epic freestyle by some of the game’s greatests. “Hi Rihanna.” More Cyphers on BET’s site.
Allen Stone – “Unaware”
We love this song off young soul singer Allen Stone’s latest release and we’re not the only ones: Stone’s self-titled record is already number 4 on the iTunes R&B charts this week!
The “Drive” Soundtrack Rocks!
The movie Drive was great. These song are awesome! The movie focuses on a stoic stunt driver/mechanic/getaway driver (Ryan Gosling) who gets in trouble with a group of violent criminals when he tries to protect his neighbor after a heist gone wrong. Albert Brooks delivers an incredible performance.
Sara Bareilles – “Gonna Get Over You”
A fun video for a great pop song from the extremely lovable judge on NBC’s The Sing Off, Sara Bareilles.
