Alien Isolation: Friday Night Gamers

It’s Friday Night Gamers time, and following its release last week, this weekend is all about Alien Isolation!

Country New Releases, Mid-Oct. 2014

Jason Aldean, Florida Georgia Line, Toby Keith, Blake Shelton – not simply a list of the biggest country names, but a list of artists with new tracks to check out on Music Unlimited. Don’t miss new material from The Swon Brothers and Mickey Guyton.

Introduction To Power Pop

Coined by Pete Townshend to define the British invasion sound, power pop is highly melodic, Beatles-crazed rock style full of crunchy guitar riffs, soaring harmonies and undeniably catchy hooks. Perfected by Big Star and Badfinger and popularized by Cheap Trick and the less proggy side of ELO, power pop has mingled with new wave, punk, 1990s alternative and indie rock. Some dabble in it while artists such as Matthew Sweet, The Smithereens and Fountains of Wayne have built careers around it.

Slipknot’s KNOTFEST Festival

Since its inception in 2012, Slipknot’s KNOTFEST has become a three-day, multi-stage event focusing on some of the heaviest music made on Earth. This year’s event in Southern California features of course our fearless heroes, Slipknot, but Danzig, Anthrax, Carcass, Napalm Death, Killswitch Engage, Five Finger Death Punch and plenty of other amp-destroying bands from around the globe.

West Coast Hip-Hop Classics from GTA V

Highlights from the Grand Theft Auto V West Coast Classics radio channel. Featuring artists like Dr. Dre, 2Pac & Ice Cube.

New Releases, Late Oct. 2014

Perhaps our most eclectic mix of new material ever – dig into new songs from Gwen Stefani, Cold War Kids, Neil Diamond, Yusuf (formerly Cat Stevens), Logic and the explosive combo of Miley Cyrus and The Flaming Lips on their cover of “Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds.”

Wolverine, Storm and the rest of the mutant contingent helped X-Men: Days of Future Past jump into this week’s top spot. Reigning champ, A Million Ways to Die in the West, just came up short, but was looking back at Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow in the third place.

1970s radio had it all – Strutting classic rockers and sensitive singer-songwriters.

Disco was born and so was punk (put them together and you get post-punk).

Devo was suddenly on the airwaves and so was John Denver. Debbie Harry and Helen Reddy stormed the singles charts.

Pink Floyd and Bowie were huge and so were Leo Sayer and any singer who was named Kenny – Kenny Rogers, Kenny Loggins and Kenny Rankin.

There was also a big strain of 1950s nostalgia to the ‘70s, which resulted in Happy Days, “Crocodile Rock,” American Graffiti, Neal Sedaka making a deserved comeback and Paul Anka making a less deserved one. People sang along to “day the music died” way back in 1959 then Elvis Presley ungracefully passed away in 1977.

Socially and politically, it was a time of libertine grooving, grim paranoia and urban decay. The best way to illustrate this dichotomy is to look at the 2 faces of Tony Orlando & Dawn – the upbeat party vibe of TOD’s Prime Time gives way to ennui and the dark, pensive dread and bitter introspection of TOD’s He Don’t Love You.

Listen to it all on Music Unlimited’s 1970s Hits channel.
