I am sitting on a folding chair in the middle of a football field. A few dozen yards in front of me stand two video screens several stories high, each angled slightly toward its respective side of the stadium, converging at the center of the stage like two sides of a triangle. A gargantuan rig … More »
Once upon a time what passed for poppy alternative rock was Stephen Malkmus whimpering, “You’re the kind of girl I like/ Because you’re empty, and I’m empty.” Nowadays apparently it’s Mitchy Collins and friends chanting, “I like that you’re broken, broken like me/ Maybe that makes me a fool/ I like that you’re lonely, lonely … More »
This isn’t the first time the dance music world has collided with the unique rock style of the band’s lead singer, Brendon Urie. Featured on Francis’ 2014 album Money Sucks, Friends Rule, the two partnered up on the rock-influenced “Love in the Middle of a Firefight,” where Urie lent his vocals.
This time, it’s Francis featured behind the scenes on the track “Hey Look Ma, I Made It,” this time offering his indie dance sensibilities to the otherwise rock album. The track, co-produced by Jake Sinclair, has a nostalgic pop viewpoint to it, with simple synth progressions, strings heading right for the heart and a danceable chorus.

Sunday night at the AMA (American Music Awards) saw The Weeknd perform his smash hit with Daft Punk “Starboy” once again to a raucous sing-along from the crowd in attendance. This marks the second award-show performance that has seen The Weeknd perform “Starboy” live following his performance at the MTV EMAs.
Emerging from what appears to be a glassy/ice monument, The Weeknd ad-libbed and sang his way into a rapturous applause and the crowd’s involvement with his performance of the hit record.
Interestingly enough on the complete side of the spectrum, are Panic! at the Disco who took over the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge earlier today to give us softer-rock take on The Weeknd and Daft Punk. Lead singer Brandon Urie might not have quite the vocal range that The Weeknd might, but him and the band still absolutely smash it with this live rendition.
