This week: Into the Badlands, Samurai Jack, and American Gods!



Into the Badlands


Season 2 - complete on AMC. Binge it all!


We’ve been raving about this show all season...and we were right. Into the Badlands is the post-apocalyptic fantasy martial arts series we’ve been dreaming about since we saw The Five Deadly Venoms. ITTB is so damn good. You know how we know? Season One was 6 episodes long, and it left us craving more. Season Two was 10 episodes long, and it blew our fragile little minds. Now—since AMC rewards excellence—Season Three of Into the Badlands will be 16 episodes. No need to hold your applause; we’re already on our feet. If you haven’t watched the series yet, you can binge it like those cupcakes you stole from work.

Here’s a bit of the premise: Season 2 is a mash-up of Journey to the West (they even have a Bajie) and The Odyssey (Sunny makes a great Ulysses); it weaves its way through badass action and layered character development to end in what looks like the setup for a new take on [highlight for spoiler] Lone Wolf and Cub!

Don’t get us wrong, we’re mad as hell about parts of how Season 3 ended, but that’s just because the show made us care. Like we said before: If you’re into high octane martial arts action, the Badlands are where you want to be.

Samurai Jack


Season 5 - complete on Adult Swim / Cartoon Network


[imgfull][/imgfull]

Samurai Jack full episodes

If you thought the Genndy Tartakovsky series (led by the hot cocoa & marshmallows voice of Phil LaMarr) was genius before, then prepare to have your expectations shattered. In its 5th season Samurai Jack is legend. The promise of the theme song becomes both prophecy and somewhat of a requiem as Jack fights against bee-bop robots, internal demons, and the Daughters of Aku. At the same time he discovers the impact he has on the world, and the healing power of the ultimate 1-2 punch—acceptance and love. There is such a depth of feeling to this show that we’re still thinking about it days after the season (and quite possibly the series) finale.

Sidebar: Cheers to, Ashi. We adore you, girl!

Like we told you before: If you’re going to make a comeback after 13 years, this is the way to do it. Samurai Jack returns for a limited fifth season and his homecoming is…awesome. Jack is back armed with guns and guilt, and he is legend.

American Gods


Sundays - 10pm ET - on Starz




[caption id="attachment_270710" align="aligncenter" width="1800"] American Gods Season 1 2017[/caption]

Ep 105 - Lemon Scented You /  Ep 104 - Git Gone
Air Dates: May 28 / May 21

By the gods, this is good. There is blood. Yes, geysers of it. Deliciously evocative sex. Oh wow, yes. There are fist fights and humor and all the things that make a fantasy series great. Yes, yes, and yes. It’s enthralling on every level, but what makes American Gods irresistible is that it serves all this up with something most series lack: Truth. A truth so fearlessly real it grabs you by the shirt and pulls you into the screen.

In Ep 5 American Gods begins to explore new territory—bringing back characters, introducing original ones, and creating conflicts that will surprise both fans of the book and those who have only seen the series. Can we just tell you? When watching American Gods you’re in for the best road trip ever!

Sidenote: Laura really is tacky (see the clip below)...but we like that a character like this exists. She’s so edge-of-the-knife honest:

[youtube][/youtube]

From Starz:

Ep 104 - Git Gone
Air Date: May 21, 2017

Alternating between the past and the present, Laura’s life and death are explored—how she met Shadow, how she died, and how exactly she came to be sitting on the edge of his motel room bed.

Ep 105 - Lemon Scented You
Air Date: May 28, 2017

Trying to work things out with his dead and unfaithful wife, Shadow’s emotional reunion is interrupted when he and Mr. Wednesday are kidnapped by the New Gods.

<![CDATA[Premiere: Look Forward to “Cleaner Days” with a New Single From Sleep In.]]> http://idobi.com/exclusives/premiere-look-forward-to-cleaner-days-with-a-new-single-from-sleep-in/ Mon, 22 May 2017 14:00:24 +0000 Tom http://idobi.com/exclusives/premiere-look-forward-to-cleaner-days-with-a-new-single-from-sleep-in/ http://i.ido.bi/assets/post/2017/05/promo-150x150.jpg We know it's a Monday, and we know this claim is going to sound... [/imgfull]

We know it's a Monday, and we know this claim is going to sound a little far fetched. Just trust us when we say, you're gonna love Sleep In. the band as much as the actual ability to sleep in. We get it, those few extra hours of sleep are nothing short of treasured—but these alternative emo-rock jams will be too.

To introduce you, we're bringing the exclusive premiere of "Cleaner Days" to your headphones. The New Jersey band sounds like 90's Seattle grunge meets modern pop punk, with the kind of guitars that remind you why guitars are so damn cool.

Hit play on the Sleep In.'s first single from their forthcoming collection, Tension & Release, below. Then, pre-order your copy of the album, set to drop on June 23rd (and trust us once again, you don't want to miss this one.)


 

"'Cleaner Days' for me is a way to touch on how growing up in my social setting and being a kid diagnosed with 'ADHD' led to heavy prescription medication and how that translates into being an adult and self-medicating, always trying to find the blurred line between addiction and recreation. Those experiences taught me how easy it is to lose control. I think the chaotic nature of the music lent itself to that exact feeling of insanity, and inspired me to write these lyrics." - Tom Fowler (Vocalist)

<![CDATA[Premiere: Venture Into “The Upside Down” with Brighter Than A Thousand Suns’ New Video]]> http://idobi.com/exclusives/premiere/the-upside-down-brighter-than-a-thousand-suns-new-video/ Mon, 22 May 2017 13:00:09 +0000 Tom http://idobi.com/exclusives/premiere/the-upside-down-brighter-than-a-thousand-suns-new-video/ http://i.ido.bi/assets/post/2017/05/brighterthanathousandsuns-150x150.jpg Hands up, who wants to escape their Monday?

Hands up, who wants to escape their Monday? Well, now you can, by heading into "The Upside Down" with our video premiere from Brighter Than A Thousand Suns. The band's blend of synth-rock and post-hardcore has enough energy to power you through the entire week, and their Stranger Things-inspired video is equal parts beautiful, and eerie. The track is taken from the band's new EP The Way Out, which will drop on June 9th; Randy Roswell says of the new release:

[blockquotefull]"This EP marks the beginning of a healing process for us. We were both struggling with dangerously high levels of depression for the past three years and couldn't seem to get out of our own way. But in the enveloping darkness, we discovered how to create our own light. 'The Way Out' was exactly that for us: the path we took on our way out of our former selves."[/blockquotefull]

Formerly known as Self Made Soul, the husband and wife duo Angelika and Randy Roswell has shared the stage with bands such as Saosin, Our Last Night, and I See Stars—and they're ready to take the spotlight again with their upcoming EP. Hit play to venture into "The Upside Down", and make sure to mark your calendars for The Way Out's release on June 9th!

<![CDATA[Discover a Better Kind of “Dreamcatcher” with Night Argent’s New Single]]> http://idobi.com/news/discover-a-better-kind-of-dreamcatcher-with-night-argents-new-single/ Mon, 22 May 2017 10:00:54 +0000 Tom http://idobi.com/news/discover-a-better-kind-of-dreamcatcher-with-night-argents-new-single/ http://i.ido.bi/assets/post/2017/05/17634637_1292015124169233_6469209951475311464_n-150x150.jpg Night Argent's new track is better than any dreams you'll be catching tonight. [/imgfull]

Night Argent's new track is better than any dreams you'll be catching tonight. The Fear is that you'll wear out the replay button, but trust us, it's worth the risk, because this is a jam you won't want to sleep on.

Titled "Dreamcatcher", the song is our first taste of the band's forthcoming EP The Fear. A collection co-written by John Feldmann, we're hoping to hear more hard hitting alt/pop/rock sounds like the ones found below. Watch out for the collection on July 14th. Until then, "Dreamcatcher" will remain stuck in your head (not that that's a bad thing.)

<![CDATA[The Undiscovered Sound Recaps Carolina Rebellion]]> http://idobi.com/idobiradio/the-undiscovered-sound-recaps-carolina-rebellion/ Fri, 19 May 2017 15:00:03 +0000 Tom http://idobi.com/idobiradio/the-undiscovered-sound-recaps-carolina-rebellion/ http://i.ido.bi/assets/post/2017/05/radkeyzippo-150x150.jpg Carolina Rebellion is a three day music festival featuring veterans and newcomers to the...
About 22 Miles outside of Charlotte NC, is a city called Concord, home of the Charlotte Motor Speedway. It’s ranked 16th for the fastest growing economy in the United States, but during one weekend in May, it’s known for hosting The Monster Carolina Rebellion.

Carolina Rebellion is a three day music festival featuring veterans and newcomers to the metal and active rock world. This year the festival took place from Friday May 5th through Sunday May 7th, featuring headliners Soundgarden, Def Leppard, and Avenged Sevenfold, with A Perfect Circle, Korn, and The Offspring taking the stage right before. Soundgarden was by far the tightest band on the bill overall—and with the recent passing of lead singer Chris Cornell, I was devastated to learn the news, after just having seen him perform one of his last shows. A seminal voice carried through the grassy fields of Concord, NC that night. Cornell was one of the most talented musicians out there, writing not just for his bands but also for film. One of my favorite pieces by him is a song called “The Promise” he recently did for the movie THE PROMISE, a film about the Armenian Genocide featuring Christian Bale. A Golden Voice, a Guitar God, and a big influence on today's rock singers, Chris Cornell leaves us at the young age of 52; the Rock Legend will be missed.

Arriving at Carolina Rebellion came with a lot of excitement to see our friends in DED, Cover Your Tracks, Citizen Zero, As Lions, and many more. There were so many great bands, lots of cool tents, and in total, you could catch over 60 bands across four different stages. Having never been to Carolina Rebellion before, I was happy to attend, and to see so many Undiscovered Sound bands playing this year—including the guys in As Lions on the Black Stage, as well as DED, and Sylar. Our friends in Radkey rocked the Gold Stage, Nothing More absolutely killed it on the Rebellion Stage. The guys in Three Days Grace took the Carolina Stage and, as always, crushed it! Soundgarden headlined on Friday, Def Leppard took over on Saturday, with a Sunday closeout by Avenged Sevenfold.

We also got an inside look into the Zippo Sessions, hosted by Jose Mangin (Sirius XM Octane / Liquid Metal Host/Curator) in the Zippo Encore Tent. We’d like to thank Zippo Encore for inviting us to check out some great acoustic performances from Of Mice & Men, Korn, Cover Your Tracks, and Radkey! Festival attendees didn’t know who would be in the tent when they arrived, which made for a big surprise—it was great to see the expressions on faces when each band walked in. A great program Zippo Encore put together and I look forward to catching more sessions.

The VIP Area was really cool to experience as well; we got to enjoy a cold drink, and had a great seat to watch the sets on the Carolina and Rebellion stages. I definitely checked into VIP a few times throughout the festival—especially at the end of each day, walking from stage to stage. It felt good to sit down and relax, while still catching your favorite band.

When you tune into The Undiscovered Sound podcasts, you’ll be able to hear lots of different interviews from the event, including Three Days Grace vocalist Matt Walst talking about recording a new album in July. You’ll also hear from As Lions and Citizen Zero when you hit play below! Keep scrolling to see pictures from the festival and listen in.

Overall, Carolina Rebellion is a festival you should attend next year if you're a fan of everything heavy!

To hear bands like DED, Sylar, Cover Your Tracks, Nothing More, Citizen Zero and more, tune into The Undiscovered Sound, Wednesdays 6pm Eastern, 3pm Pacific on idobi Radio!

We can’t wait to see a new facet of the beloved universe, and we’re also giving the cast a huge thumbs up, featuring the likes of Sonequa Martin-Green as Commander Michael Burnham, Michelle Yeoh as Captain Philippa Georgiou, and Jason Isaacs as Captain Lorca. Star Trek: Discovery is coming this fall, and you can get a taste of what to expect by hitting play on the trailer below!

<![CDATA[It’s Punks vs. Aliens in These New Teasers for ‘How to Talk to Girls at Parties’]]> http://idobi.com/news/its-punks-vs-aliens-in-these-new-teasers-for-how-to-talk-to-girls-at-parties/ Fri, 19 May 2017 13:30:36 +0000 Tom http://idobi.com/news/its-punks-vs-aliens-in-these-new-teasers-for-how-to-talk-to-girls-at-parties/ http://i.ido.bi/assets/post/2017/05/htttgap-150x150.jpg The new love story that is How to Talk to Girls at Parties is... [imgfull][/imgfull]


“What do you people do on an ordinary day?” “We do what we want.”


Another Girl, Another Planet? The new love story that is How to Talk to Girls at Parties is out of this world—quite literally—and some teasers have arrived to entertain us all. Set in 1970s suburban London, the upcoming movie asks the question: just what would you do if you met the love of your life, and she wasn’t from Earth?


When Enn, a shy teenage punk rocker, and his two closest friends, Vic and John, sneak into a party and meet a group of insanely attractive, otherworldly girls, they begin to suspect something might be amiss. They eventually come to realize the girls are from outer space; part of an alien colony with a nefarious plan. But when Enn falls madly in love with Zan, one of the colony’s key members, things get real complicated, real fast—it’s punks versus aliens this time kids, and it’s going to get weird and wonderful.


Based on the short story of same name by Neil Gaiman and directed by John Cameron Mitchell, the movie stars Elle Fanning, Alex Sharp, Nicole Kidman, Ruth Wilson, and Matt Lucas. How to Talk to Girls at Parties is premiering at the Cannes film festival—for now, hit play on the teasers below!

What better way to kick off a weekend than with new music? Fridays are always chock full of the latest songs and albums ready to be the soundtrack to everyone’s antics, and here you’ll find some of the week’s standout releases. Whether you’re ready to spin an anticipated song from a favorite artist or just taking a look at what’s out there, there’s a whole lot of tunes to dive right into. Who knows—maybe you’ll find your next obsession.

Linkin Park - One More Light


Whether you’re into their new music or not, you have to give respect to Linkin Park for switching up their sound so aggressively. Throwing their rock roots to the wayside, they’ve picked up a pure-pop personality in new music with eyes set solely on the top of the charts. Can’t say it hasn’t worked—lead single “Heavy” is already a Top 40 hit, while additional One More Light cuts like “Nobody Can Save Me” and “Talking to Myself” could be next to join. Some fans may be left unhappy, but the ones that are happy are living the Linkin Park dream.


Blink-182 - California (Deluxe Edition)


It’s hard to get people to still give a crap about you when you’ve been making pop-punk music for over 20 years, but nothing is stopping Blink-182. In fact, it’s kind of remarkable that they haven’t just stayed relevant, but that they’re more important now than they’ve ever been. The band finally unleashes the deluxe edition of their Grammy-nominated full-length, California, and it’s loaded with 12 previously unreleased tracks. With “Parking Lot” and “Misery” blaring through the speakers, it’s completely obvious why people still care, but most importantly, the band still cares, too.


Selena Gomez - “Bad Liar”


For those amped for a new Selena Gomez record, you have a lot to look forward to. “Bad Liar” is the first taste we get to hear off her upcoming album, presumably out this fall, and songwriter Justin Tranter says that it picks off right where they left off with Gomez’s Revival. This single isn’t quite like anything we’ve heard from the pop star before—an interpolation of Talking Heads’ “Psycho Killer” sits at the forefront for what is one of her catchiest songs to date.


Liam Payne - “Strip That Down”


Going solo doesn’t always mean you need to start anew. While it’s a little strange that all the One Direction guys have been releasing stuff around the same time, Liam Payne has come away as the clear winner with his debut single, “Strip That Down.” Featuring Migos’ Quavo, Payne’s first solo track is unapologetic lyrically—he’s not sorry for having a good time, and this dance pop number (co-penned by Ed Sheeran) proves it.


Camila Cabello - “Crying in the Club”


Ever since her collaboration with Shawn Mendes on “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” it was clear that Camila Cabello had a star power that required a departure from Fifth Harmony to really flourish. It was a surprise when she left for sure, but when you look at what she’s done with Cashmere Cat and Machine Gun Kelly lately, it was for the best. Her first solo venture, “Crying in the Club,” is a solid effort that oozes influence from co-writer Sia. It works, but perhaps she’ll put more of her own influence on future tracks to come.


Katy Perry - “Swish Swish”


Katy Perry’s Witness era is off to a weird start. Other than the hit she had with the lead “Chained to the Rhythm,” its successor “Bon Appetit” was given up on rather quickly. However, things are looking up with the latest release, “Swish Swish” featuring Nicki Minaj. Strong verses surround the house-tinged instrumentals as Minaj steals the show with a verse—and even some singing of her own.


Lil Yachty - “X Men”


Always blending the line between rap and pop, Lil Yachty goes all in on the rap side of things on “X Men.” It’s the latest track off his debut record, Teenage Emotions, and it’s only right that the album shows off a myriad of emotions in the music, too. It’s on the shorter side, but it’ll act as a nice segue into his single and more radio-friendly “Bring It Back.”


Bebe Rexha - “The Way I Are
(Dance With Somebody) (feat. Lil Wayne)”


She’s got multiple Top 40 singles to her name, but none of them are with her as the main credited artist. Bebe Rexha’s been in the game for a while now, and with a couple EPs under her belt, she deserves a smash; “The Way I Are (Dance With Somebody)” just might get it for her. With Lil Wayne providing a verse and an interpolation of Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody,” it’s the perfect formula for success.


All Time Low - “Nice2KnoU”


All Time Low’s Last Young Renegade is shaping up to be a wonderful mix of classic and new ATL. The band has ventured into uncharted territory on tracks like “Dirty Laundry” and “Life of the Party,” but they bring it back to where it all began on stuff like the title track and brand new single, “Nice2KnoU.” With crunchy guitar riffs and an anthemic chorus, “Nice2KnoU” is nostalgic, but it manages to still keep you in 2017.


Hit The Lights - “Anthem”


It should be a law that Hit The Lights are required to release something for the summer. For now, we get the blistering energetic “Anthem” to rock to, and it doesn’t disappoint. Picking up where Summer Bones left off, the band is definitely still at the top of their game, providing pop-punk gems that can only be listened to while screaming at the top of your lungs along with them.


Muse - “Dig Down”


Muse are back in action with their new single, “Dig Down,” marking the first material from the UK powerhouses since 2015’s Drones. Produced by legendary producer Mike Elizondo, the track is a buzzing electronic number ready to be played in arenas, so you can bet that it’ll be part of their setlist on their upcoming U.S. tour later this month. No new album in sight just yet, but the future's looking good if it’s anywhere close to sounding like this.


Chris Cornell - “Seasons”


It was 1992 when Chris Cornell’s “Seasons” was featured on the soundtrack of the cult-classic film, Singles. Back then, director Cameron Crowe set out to make sure the soundtrack paid homage to grunge-era Seattle musicians and bands, but now it’s got a much different vibe behind it. The deluxe edition of the Singles soundtrack arrives today, a day after Cornell passed away unexpectedly, and it includes his classic 1992 EP, Poncier. There’s just something immensely special about the fact that a soundtrack with so much meaning behind it gets to honor a legacy that will be remembered forever.

You don't have to wait until the release of Midnight Sun to hear new music from Dante Matas. Today, we've got the premiere of his brand new track "Every Other Conversation", and we're sharing it with you below.

From downtown Toronto, Matas fell in love with music by way of piano, bass, and drums, and hasn't stopped playing since. Now, he's combining the worlds of pop, folk, and experimental music for a sound all his own. Check out "Every Other Conversation" below, and grab the Midnight Sun EP on June 2nd!
 

 

"If you listen to the lyrics of this song you'll see a conversation between two people where neither person is really listening to the other. Both people think they know what is best for the other person and they act like they know them more than they know themselves. This leads to both people acting out in different ways when they realize they are not being listened to, and in fact that THEY the ones being told what to do. They sort of reach an agreement at the end however. They realize they don’t always get into an argument when they speak. Just every other time!"
