With critical acclaim from Complex, Vice, and High Snobiety who christened him, “the latest and greatest rising rap name coming from Atlanta,rapper Lil Gnar is one of today’s most ambitious new artists.

“I’m really just trying to build my own world,” he exclaims. “There’s a whole wave. It’s everything from fashion to music. I was in the street, but I was also in the skatepark, so everything I do speaks to both sides of who I am.”

His 2018 mixtape GNAR Lif3 fueled his rise, featuring a collaboration with Blink 182’s Travis Barker and the single “Drop Top Benz” with Lil Skies, which has gained over 23 million streams on Spotify. He followed the mixtape a year later with the heavy metal-inspired, Fire Hazard, in 2019. The project earned praise from XXL and Hot New Hip Hop and features his biggest single to date “Death Note,” which has accumulated over 37 million streams on Spotify.

“When you listen to me, I want you to feel like you can do whatever you want and be yourself,” he leaves off. “I’ve always done my own thing. I think that fact can be an inspiration.”

Growing up on a diet of punk, metal, and hip hop, rising artist POORSTACY is a sum of disparate influences. The 21-year-old singer, rapper and guitarist spent his formative years performing shows in small venues around his hometown of Palm Beach, Florida: “There’s a real metal scene out here. Lots of punk rock, gothic stuff. I’ve chosen to actually make music based on what I grew up around.” Combining the power chords and angst of punk with the 808s and half-sung melodies of modern hip hop, POORSTACY quickly gained the attention of record label 10K Projects, who signed the young artist in early 2019. With lyrics often focused on themes of isolation and anxiety, POORSTACY’s work feels both intimate and universal, and has led to collaborations with multi-Platinum selling producer Nick Mira (Juice WRLD, Post Malone) and, most recently, Blink-182’s Travis Barker.

Since the beginning of his music making, POORSTACY’s influences have remained eclectic, ranging from Slipknot, Billy Idol, Earl Sweatshirt and Flatbush Zombies. Citing legendary Z-Boys skateboarder, Stacy Peralta, as the inspiration behind his artist name, he notes, “Stacy Peralta himself was not shown a lot of attention at the start, but he ended up being one of the biggest legends in skateboarding in the end. I always loved the idea of that, of doing your own thing and having it pay off.” Also citing films like V For Vendetta, Rob Zombie’s remake of Halloween, and Trainspotting as inspiration, a core tenet of POORSTACY’s songwriting is drawing metaphors from unlikely sources.

His debut album, The Breakfast Club, was released at the beginning of 2020, a nod to the 1985 cult classic. “The album was written based on pure instinct and raw emotion,” he reflects, “I want people to understand themselves by hearing their feelings put into words through me.” Featuring labelmate iann dior, The Breakfast Club was a hip hop/punk record which reflected his South Florida upbringing and proved his ability to create a large cohesive project. With punk and metal-heavy tracks like “Hotel” and “Afraid,” POORSTACY shows off his range and his fearlessness as a songwriter.

Command Sisters – Feel Good

Command Sisters released a brand new single titled “Feel Good” through 21 Entertainment/Universal Music Canada/Republic Records.

You can hear the song by clicking right here.

Command Sisters comprises of sisters Charlotte and Sarah Command, who are looking to turn popular culture red. The two built a distinct sound and style that set them apart from everyone else when they were just children.

Sarah Command was inspired by guitar players like Joe Satriani, Steve Vai and Orianthi while Charlotte Command pulled from Sia and The Weeknd. Combining the styles of the two gave the duo a sharp sound that combines pop vocals with edgy instruments.

They don’t just pull audiences in with their music. They’ve carefully cultivated a look that matches their music, using high fashion to attract attention.

To this point in their careers, they’ve played all over the United States and Canada, and they’ve partnered with the likes of Martin Guitars, PRS Guitars, Marshall Amps, MAC Cosmetics and Boss/Roland.

They’ve also mastered social media posting high quality content daily.

The release of “Feel Good” comes right off the release of “Lonely Lullaby” and the debut singles from Command Sisters titled “I Can Do What I Want To” and “I Like It,” which released in the summer.

They recorded all of the tracks in Los Angeles with award-winning producer Tim Pagnotta, who has worked with bands like WALK THE MOON, Weezer, Blink-182 and Neon Trees. They’ve set themselves up perfectly for the release of their debut EP, which will drop early in 2021.

When talking about “Feel Good,” Command Sisters said we need something to make us all, well, feel good.

“This song means shamelessly going after what you want and not apologizing for that! Doing the things that make YOU feel good, regardless of what people say. It’s all about self love,” they said.

7715 New Song and Video

The Southern California-based alternative pop band 7715 released a new song titled “Lost in Boston” on Tuesday.

The song is accompanied by a music video that you can see by clicking right here.

The lyrics of the song suggest the band has met someone in Boston they love spending time with. The video leads us to believe they’d prefer the sunny beaches of Southern California, but they’re willing to stick around in Boston for a minute if it means they can get a personal tour of the city from this stranger at the bar.

“Lost in Boston” follows “Gone,” 7715’s song from earlier this year featuring Lil Aaron, and this summertime anthem will be featured on the band’s debut EP “Encino,” which is slated to release in September.

7715 most recently accompanied Bryce Vine and Mod Sun and is comprised of four members. JP Clark, the songwriter, has written for artists like Blink 182, blackbear, Bryce Vine and Lukas Graham. Stu Da Boi raps, Tyler Wilson sings and Daniel Geraghty plays guitar and produces the songs.

Their name came from the address of the house that came to be the band’s birthplace. While partying, jamming and partying some more, they found that they could combine their talents to make songs that are magnets to ears.

Can’t wait to see you all on the other side.” says Mark Hoppus. Travis Barker adds “The song was inspired by the quarantine and the crappy punk rock music we have loved to play since day one.  All the drums are one take and I even sang some backup vocals. Mark sounds more pissed off then I’ve ever heard him, and I really like it.”

Jim Adkins – Pass-Through Frequencies

Jim Adkins (Jimmy Eat World) has announced details of a podcast series, Pass-Through Frequencies, (brought to you by Fender Guitars).

The podcast will see Jim unpacking the craft of songwriting and creative process over an in-depth interview with fellow musicians every week. The series begins on August 6th with Jim’s first guest, Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus. Future episodes are set to include: Steve Aoki, Nate Reuss, Chris Carrabba, Ben Gibbard, Tegan Quinn and David Bazan, with more to be announced.

Speaking about the idea behind the podcast, Jim says “When I’m working on a song, it almost feels like I am channeling something. It’s like I am holding the rudder with only a vague clue who might be paddling. I have to find a balanced mindset of being wholly present…and not “there” at all. The creative process has as much reward and mystery as it did 26 years ago when I started writing songs with Jimmy Eat World. I am still totally fascinated. In this series I chat with music people about their process, preparation and execution. As well as whatever may get thrown in on the side.”

The Pass-Through Frequencies podcast follows the release of Jimmy Eat World’s, ‘Surviving’ which was released in October of 2019 via RCA Records. The band’s tenth studio album was met with widespread acclaim, described as “bold, brave and defiant” by the NME, “a cement-solid collection of introspective, core-cutting songs,” by Alternative Press, “a gloriously adrenalised return to form” by Q Magazine and “packed with unfiltered feeling and power” by Kerrang!

‘Surviving’ includes the singles,“Love Never”“All The Way (Stay)” and “555”, the music video for which saw Jim channelling classic 80’s sci-fi cinema as a fantastical counter-balance to the track’s emotional heft. Fans can now watch a ‘555’ behind-the-scenes video HERE.

About Command Sisters

Command Sisters—Charlotte and Sarah Command—wield the power to turn popular culture red, the color being a signature feature of a finely-crafted image. After playing together since childhood, the siblings honed on a distinct sound and style that has brought them to what you get today. Sarah drew on a lifelong love of shred gods, such as Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, and Orianthi, as Charlotte nodded to the songcraft of Sia and The Weeknd, cultivating a sharp signature sound steeped in mind-blowing musicality and tight hooks. Their sense of style got just as loud with a crimson take on high fashion. This careful presentation turned heads. Not only did they perform across the United States and Canada, but they attracted partners such as Martin Guitars, PRS Guitars, Marshall Amps, MAC Cosmetics, and Boss/Roland, to name a few. Additionally, they cultivated a fervent social media following through consistently eye-popping posts. Mind you, they impressively did all of this without one official release. After inking a deal with 21 Entertainment, Universal Music Canada, and Republic Records, Command Sisters are primed for a bold breakthrough with their 2020 singles “I Can Do What I Want To” and “I Like It.”

POORSTACY × Travis Barker

South Florida-bred POORSTACY has released his latest single and music video “Choose Life,” a collaboration with Blink 182’s Travis Barker, via 10K Projects. The prolific artist’s newest single “Choose Life” follows up his debut album, The Breakfast Club, less than four months after its release. Inspired by the famous monologue from the UK film Trainspotting, POORSTACY’s “Choose Life” takes “the monologue and puts it in [his] own voice and [his] own words as a way to tell people to not give up and to choose life instead.”

Growing up on a diet of punk, metal, and hip hop, rising artist POORSTACY is a sum of disparate influences. The 21-year-old singer, rapper and guitarist spent his formative years performing shows in small venues around his hometown of Palm Beach, Florida: “There’s a real metal scene out here. Lots of punk rock, gothic stuff. I’ve chosen to actually make music based on what I grew up around.” Combining the power chords and angst of punk with the 808s and half-sung melodies of modern hip hop, POORSTACY quickly gained the attention of record label 10K Projects, who signed the young artist in early 2019. With lyrics often focused on themes of isolation and anxiety, POORSTACY’s work feels both intimate and universal, and has led to collaborations with multi-Platinum selling producer Nick Mira (Juice WRLD, Post Malone) and, most recently, Blink-182’s Travis Barker.

Maggie Lindemann x Travis Barker “Friends Go”

On Maggie Lindemann‘s latest single, ‘Friends Go,’ the 20-year-old treads the line between modernist and throwback. The starlet embraces this duality with the help of Blink 182’s Travis Barker by putting a punk twist on the recent single which explores feelings of disconnect at a time in which technology has made people closer than ever before.

“I wanted to do a version of friends go that had a bit more of a punk feel because that’s my favorite type of music,” Maggie explained. “When I first recorded the song, I wanted to do multiple versions. I feel like the song is very versatile and wanted to kinda explore different genres! I love the Travis version, it’s one of my favorite songs I’ve done.”

Maggie Lindemann has been adventurously investigating her sound and identity since breaking through with the global pop smash ‘Pretty Girl.’ From that track’s laser-sharp pop focus to the darker, revealingly vulnerable recent tracks ‘Human’ and ‘Would I,’ Maggie has demonstrated a brave desire to tackle bold new ideas while amassing over a billion streams.

“Friends Go” commences Maggie’s build-up to her first full-length project which is set to be released later in the year. The video for the song garnered over one million streams in 48 hours. Maggie has begun to emerge as an icon of her generation, with over a billion audio streams, 175 million views at YouTube, 6 million followers across her social platforms, and an international array of Platinum awards. Most recently touring stateside with Sabrina Carpenter she’s also performed with Khalid and Troye Sivan.

Maggie has been further celebrated in the world of fashion. She launched her single ‘Obsessed’ with an innovative partnership with the make-up brand Pat McGrath and recently teamed up with Skinny Dip for a sunglasses collaboration. She’s also unveiled her own merch line in the shape of SWIXXZ, which is now being sold in stores by skate apparel chain, Zumiez.
