[Watch] Muse - "Plug In Baby" Live At Rome Olympic Stadium

Earlier this year Muse played some huge stadium shows around Europe and it was honestly one of the biggest spectacles I've witnessed, even by Muse's standards. Their show at Rome's Olympic Stadium was recently released as a full on 4K recorded audio/visual extravaganza in cinemas and as an early Christmas present the band have uploaded a clip of them paying their classic hit "Plug In Baby" at the Italian show. Having dropped the majority of their older material in their recent shows, this track is a staple no matter what, with "Stockholm Syndrome" and "Hysteria" usually alternating nightly via a giant roulette table. If you've never seen Muse in a live setting it's sure to give you an idea of what these guys do on a nightly basis, and if you have, well, you know that you're about to hit play on a video from one of the best live bands in the world.

Along with this lovely little live tidbit, the band have stated that a follow up to last year's The 2nd Law could see the light of day as soon as early 2015. They've also stated that it could be a little more stripped back, with Matt Bellamy saying: "I have this strong feeling that the next album should be something that really does strip away the additional things that we've experimented with on the last two albums, which is electronics, symphonics and orchestral work and all that kind of stuff." 

We'll keep you posted with more news on that but for now, enjoy the classic guitar hit below.

[Watch] Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip - "You Will See Me" (Official Video)

Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip return with another visually stunning clip for their lyrically heavy track "You Will See Me" taken from their recently released album, Repent Replenish Repeat. The video is a cool look into Pip losing it in a small room, before time seems to wind backwards while moving forwards too. It's rather cool. It fits nicely with Pip's passionate commentary and along with Dan Le Sac's ever building beat it makes for a pretty powerful watch. Check it out below.

When released last month, their album got to number one on the first ever Independent Record Store Chart and to celebrate that they're doing something a little special. On December 16th the pair will release the single on a limited run of vinyl that is exclusive to Independent record stores so keep your eyes peeled for that. The track will also be available digitally. Alternatively you could just buy their album and get a whole heap of awesome instead of just a little bit of awesome? In early 2014 you can catch the boys on the road which I'd highly recommend you do. Dates can be found after the jump.

[Watch] Run The Jewels (Killer Mike & El-P) - "Banana Clipper" Feat. Big Boi (Official Video)

The pairing of El-P and Killer Mike is always something to stop and stare at. Your parents may have told you that was rude when you were a kid but trust me, when something this good comes around, your jaw was meant to be left open as your eyes begin to water for staring so hard. R.A.P. Music was a prime example of this. Their collaborative name of Run The Jewels have just dropped a car filled clip for the Big Boi featuring track "Banana Clipper" which just makes me wanna be able to rock a yellow bandana and rap. I've tried it before and it was not a good look. I gave people a reason to stare for all the wrong reasons. While it may not be as cinematic as one of my all time favourite videos from them ("Big Beast") it's certainly an easy watch.

Watch the clip courtesy of Complex below and if you're in Europe, you may just be lucky enough to be visited by the magical duo in the coming weeks. Dates after the jump.

[Download] Death Grips - 'Government Plates'

After royally pissing off just about everyone earlier in the year via cancelling a tonne of shows last minute, self releasing  NO LOVE DEEP WEB without the permission of their label which in turn, lost them their record deal. Generally the band were being bad-asses who absolutely did not give a flying fuck, Death Grips now return unannounced, with a brand new album that's as dirty as your laundry. The last time we heard from them was in August via their song "Birds" which features on the album that's nicely titled, Government Plates. You can stream it in full below or you can download it here and here. It's always nice to wake up and find someone decent has actually released some exciting music overnight and this definitely delivers. Check it out and play it loud at your work desk today. Be more like these guys and fuck the rules.

[Listen] The 1975 - "Girls" (The Knocks Remix)


In a year filled with rather exquisite albums, it's often hard to pick favourites and it's at this time of year that people begin to make their shortlists for numerous sites across the web. A stand out for me was the pop-filled, cinematic debut full-length from The 1975. Their recent single "Girls" is just an instant feel good song the moment it hits the speakers. Now, it is Friday after all, and chances are you're getting pretty hyped up for the weekend, and rightly so. There's also a chance you're sat at your desk at work right now and you're already clock watching counting down the minutes until you're free and can go sip on a sweet, sweet beverage. Let's make that wait seem like a little less with the help of a remix of the aforementioned single from The 1975 courtesy of The Knocks. Breathing a new life of disco into an already infectious track you can download it for free below and get the weekend started a little sooner than you might of planned.

The 1975's self-titled debut is out now.

[Watch] Jaws - "Gold" (Official Video)

Birmingham seems to be flourishing with new bands at the moment and a personal favourite of mine from the Midlands are Jaws. The band have been hectically touring after an even busier summer and because of that we've not really heard too much from them. Not that we'd forgot, you know, it's just sometimes things are out of sight so they're out of mind... Back to being in sight though and they've released a video for their recent single "Gold" which is an absolute belter of a tune. The clip actually does a decent job to show them playing night after night around the country having a whale of a time. Excited for more from these young guns in the coming year(s). Check it.

[Watch] Queens of the Stone Age's Full Bridge School Benefit Show

Organized by musician Neil Young and his wife, Pegi, every year the Bridge School Benefit Concert is held every October at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California. All of the proceeds directly benefit the operations of The Bridge School and year on year a host of truly amazing artists play for the cause. This year one of the bands on the bill set to perform an acoustic set was Queens of the Stone Age who played a range of songs old and new in their 30 minute set. From opening with "Long Slow Goodbye" to a spine tingling rendition of "Kalopsia", it's a joy to watch the band run through tracks in a stripped back manner like this. Their latest album ...Like Clockwork is out now and if you haven't picked it up yet then why not?!

In other QOTSA related news, you can get excited for an interactive video coming from the band tomorrow.

[Listen] Warpaint - "Love Is To Die"

I love waking up to surprises. Those days where you wake up a little worse for wear and you realise you still have you phone, wallet and passport, but then you check your wallet and there's still money in it! It's a magical feeling. I like it even more when I wake up to find that the night before while I was in a dream-like state that a band I really like released a new track and announced a new album. Today was one of those days as Warpaint have announced their sophomore album and following the ever growing trend it's a self-titled one. Along with that they've tickled our ears with brand new music in the shape of a track called "Love Is To Die" which you can check out below. The ladies are currently doing a short stint around the UK but I'm sure we can expect more dates to be announced in 2014. The 12 track S/T will be released via Rough Trade on January the 20th.

They play Manchester Academy this evening (October 39th) and Brixton Academy in London tomorrow on the 30th Oct. For now treat yourself to the huge sounding track below.
