North Korea is a weird country. Heck, so is the United States of America. But the USA doesn’t play creepy, Blade Runner-like Theremin music in the nation’s capital each morning just after dawn. North Korea does.
At $15 per month or $150 per year for up to six users, Amazon’s Music Unlimited family plan was already one of the best deals in streaming music. But for a limited time, you can use promo code TREATFAMILY for a $20 credit towards your membership.
Well, it does go with his Goku tattoo.
2016 was a great year for video games, and an even better year for video game music. It was also a diverse year, with a mix of Norse folk music, spy movie histrionics, ambient soundscapes and extremely heavy metal.
A reader shot me an email earlier this week desperately asking for advice about which tunes to crank whilst wrenching. Not to keep the poor bastard confused and listening to static coming from his garage’s AM radio, I’m here to provide help.
Last night, Kanye West kicked off his Saint Pablo tour in Indianapolis with a crazy flying stage. Instead of a boring, normal, stationary stage—you know, the kind most artists jump and gyrate all over—Kanye decided to float above the audience on a suspended platform.
Sweden’s King Carl XVI Gustaf celebrated his 70th birthday on April 30, 2016 with a big royal party in Stockholm featuring an awesome choreographed rendition of ABBA’s “Dancing Queen” by a Swedish army band. Looks like a groovy time.
Tribute bands are groups that exclusively play the music of a specific artist. Heavy metal band Raptor Command, though, isn’t that kind tribute band, but instead obsessively pays tribute to Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk by performing inspirational songs about him. Yes, it’s extremely strange. But also kind of…
I’ll clarify this post first by just saying that one of the members of this band has been one of my best friends since I was 5 years old. So, yeah, this is a favor. Still, it’s car-related enough and it involves pictures of hood ornaments, so why not?
Charli XCX’s “Vroom Vroom” is a typically delectable pop number, and as always the video delivers. Decked out in a latex bodysuit that resembles a high gloss paint job on a sports car, she sings and semi-raps about how no one can touch her in this pop world—cause baby, she’s much too fast.
For many of us lifelong gearheads, our gateway drug to cars, provided to us as children, was the racing exploits of a sentient 1963 Volkswagen Beetle named Herbie. The music from that first movie, The Love Bug, still plays in my head when I actually manage to pass someone. But what if that famous music was stolen?
Scion used to be cool, man. Or at least it tried to be. It tried damned hard to appeal to the youths, especially in the early years, and a lot of that was through a thing that’s always popular with the youths: music.
The passing of one of the world’s most beloved music artists is a hard pill to swallow. David Bowie impacted not just music and fashion, but also science fiction and even real astronauts. Nowhere is this better evidenced than in this cover of “Space Oddity,” recorded in space by International Space Station Commander…
If you couldn’t stand the fast and repetitive pseudo-synth of 1990s video games I’d advise you not to read further. But you’re missing out; I can’t wait to peg this playlist next time I’m eating asphalt in a sports car.
Happy Sunday! Welcome to the first edition of Holy Shift, where we highlight big innovations in the auto and racing industries each week—whether they be necessary or simply for comfort.
Three-time Formula One world driver’s champion Lewis Hamilton shared some of his latest work with 60 Minutes’ Charlie Rose last night, and even I have to admit: it’s not terrible. Sure, our point of reference for F1 songwriters is Jacques Villeneuve, but Hamilton’s created something surprisingly inoffensive.
Automotive journalists don’t get as many USB sticks at car launches as they used to because everything is in the cloud nowadays, but Infiniti went old school for the Q30, and now I want to start a party with you.
