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.”

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.

Shadow of Mordor: Friday Night Gamers: It’s Friday Night Gamers time, and this week is all about Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor! Listen to our brand new selection of songs as you battle as Talion in Middle-Earth to break his curse.

Stax Soul Classics: The flagship indie label that defined the Southern soul sound, Stax Records introduced the pop world to such stellar artists as Otis Redding, The Staple Singers, William Bell and The Dramatics. Stax talents such as Isaac Hayes, The Bar-Keys and Booker T & The MG’s started as behind-the-scenes alchemists and were quickly elevated to brilliant careers. Stax folded in 1975 but its catalog is still prized today.

Dance/Electronic New Releases: Fantastic mix this week of new tracks from SBTRKT, The 2 Bears, Royksopp as well as top singles from Deejay Deer and AVICII. We start this mix off with a track from techno pioneers LFO, whose founding member Mark Bell sadly passed away this week.

Brit Pop: When American grunge ascended at the start of the ‘90s, Britain fought back for alt rock dominance with a guitar-based party-ready sound that recalled everything from the glory days of The Beatles and The Stones to The Smiths and The Jam. Blur, Oasis, Supergrass, The Verve and Pulp led the new breed while veterans such as Paul Weller, Morrissey, Julian Cope and Edwyn Collins were sited as key influences.

Intro To…Movie Themes: Imagine watching Jaws without John Williams’ gripping film score. Movies have been brightened by the orchestral brilliance of Bernard Herrmann, Ennio Morricone and Philip Glass and given jazzy, midnight sheen by the likes of Henry Mancini, John Barry and Duke Ellington. Today’s synth mavens, such as Cliff Martinez and Daft Punk compose pulsating electronic scores which recall the glory days of Vangelis and Giorgio Moroder. The directors John Carpenter and Clint Eastwood often score their own films.

Alt/Indie New Releases: Weezer are back with an album that delivers on the promise of the Blue Album so many years ago. Other new tracks comes from Tweedy, Perfume Genius and Christopher Owens (ex-Girls). Don’t miss out on the especially Kate Bush-esque tracks from BØRNS and Lydia Ainsworth.

Solo John Lennon excelled at direct, often painfully confessional songs that confronted his childhood, his emotional highs and lows, political ideals and the course of his marriage to Yoko Ono. Often at his artistic best when his life was falling apart, Lennon recorded these songs in ten short years when he was fighting to stay in America, separating and reuniting with Yoko, and starting over as a husband and father. We collected some of the best for our John Lennon: MU Icon playlist, which features beloved songs such as “Imagine,” “Jealous Guy” and “(Just Like) Starting Over.”

Listen to the John Lennon: MU Icon playlist right here.

Need for Speed: Friday Night Gamers

It’s Friday Night Gamers time and this week it’s all about the fastest tracks to drive to whilst playing Need for Speed

Power Ballads

Let’s praise those grand rock ‘n’ roll gestures with some of the best, most over-the-top mid-tempo showstoppers around. Grab your loved one and get those lighters out (or a comparable app).

Classical New Releases, October, 2014

Major new releases from American composer Steve Reich, Scotland’s Nicola Benedetti and the South African born, London bred Daniel Hope join equally heralded works from Khatia Buniatishvili, Daniel Barenboim and Jenny Lin.

Remembering Paul Revere: Garage Rock Pioneer

Paul Revere’s driving organ sound, as well as his energized onstage persona, helped make The Raiders one of the true American triumphs during the British Invasion era. Their R&B-infused, tightly compacted early material embodied the raw sound of the Pacific Northwest while songs like “Kicks” and “Hungry” put them and their tri-cornered hats in front of millions.

Aphex Twin: MU Icon

Aphex Twin’s new album Syro melds melancholy melodies with a wide array of tumbling and hyper-kinetic beats. It’s a familiar sound echoing his ‘90s work but with more assured nature. Take a listen to some of the music that lead to this point, it’s the sound of a singular talent in the electronic world, one that makes him an ideal MU Icon.

New Releases, October 2014

We’re happy to announce the return of the John Lennon catalog this week. “Imagine” leads off a strong week of new material from the Sam Smith-meets-Elton John-esque sounds of Hozier as well as new tracks from Weezer, Flying Lotus, Childish Gambino. Be sure to check out Frazey Ford’s fine mix of folk and classic soul on “September Fields.”
