Soon-To-Be Hollywood Blockbuster 'DETROIT' Releases Trailer

By: Amy Cooper, ACRONYM


From the Director of The Hurt Locker and ZERO DARK THIRTY comes the story of the Detroit Riots in 1967. Considering that this hits close to home for Detroiters, and the fact that the city is FINALLY starting to bounce back from this era, this will be intensely scrutinized on detail by the locals. 

According to the trailer, the movie is attempting to stay factual with the "based on a true story" type disclaimer. Star Wars John Boyega plays one of the lead characters as well. 

Let's hope they get it right, we're watching. 

The film is set to release August 4.

'Detroiters' Say Their Commercials Are Spoofs Of Old Detroit Commercials

In my heart, the jury is still out on how Detroiters is ranking. I kind of feel like they make Detroiters look stupid, personally, but I'm only 2 episodes in, and don't feel compelled to watch it live, I've been DVR-ing it.

Lorde Just Released Her Newest Single "Green Light"

By: Amy Cooper, ACRONYM


Lorde is back - and she's got some beats!  

It was rumored that the indie princess would be bringing a little more electronic into her songs, so green light is actually both melancholy and peppy, and sort of anthemic. 

Check out the video or listen to the song, entitled "Green Light" on Spotify, courtesy of Lorde's link here:

New Video | Body Count, ‘No Lives Matter’

By: Amy Cooper, ACRONYM


Hooooollllyyyy shit, Ice-T!

The intro to the music video for the political commentary song by Body Count (which includes Ice-T), called ‘No Lives Matter’ (which is entirely in black and white) says the following: 

“It’s unfortunate that we even have to say ‘Black Lives Matter. I mean if you go through history, nobody really gave a f–k. I mean you kill black people in the street, nobody went to jail, nobody goes to prison, but when you say ‘Black Lives Matter’ and then you say ‘All Lives Matter,’ that’s like if I were to say ‘Gay Lives Matter’ and you say ‘All Lives Matter,’ or I say ‘Women’s Lives Matter’ and you say ‘All Lives Matter.’ You’re diluting what I’m saying. You’re diluting the issue. The issue isn’t about everybody. It’s about black lives at the moment, but the truth of the matter is, they don’t really give a f–k about anybody if you break the s–t all the way down to the f–king dirty ass truth."

The song touches on so many injustices in the U.S., and will probably become an anthem of what we're seeing as the start of some political resistance in the United States. News dialogue is also inserted to the song about Black people being slaughtered by the cops. 

Needless to say, the song is so powerful, we just keep saying wow. 

The video isn't released on public domain yet, it's just listed on Loudwire.com's website for an exclusive video release, but you can hear the song here.

Metallica's Web Stream Audio Was Working During The GRAMMYs

By: Amy Cooper, ACRONYM


The performance between Lady Gaga and Metallica, singing Metallica's "Moth Into Flame" did not go off without chaos at this year's GRAMMYs. But now, it looks as if Metallica's web stream still had audio, while the main stage did not. James Hetfield couldn't seem to hear his vocals, and once Gaga realized that James kept coming to her mic, she must have figured out he had no audio, and shared with him - a true performer. 

The audio seems legit, but check it out here and make your own conclusions:

ICYMI: Sonny Moore AKA Skrillex Performs With His Old Band From First To Last

By: Amy Cooper, ACRONYM


My inner emo kid is screaming.

From First To Last was a great band. A solid band. One that spoke to our broken hearts. Then when Sonny Moore was unable to continue vocally blowing out his voice, he became something different. Something electronic. Something that sounded like dial up internet. Skrillex

Not to take anything from Sonny, he has made quite a name for himself as a great producer as well as an electronic artist that most people do know, but we always longed for Sonny to come back to From First To Last, and we never thought we'd see it happen. 

Turns out that never showed up quickly. 

Check out the footage here of Sonny/Skrillex performing with From First To Last for the first time in 11 years, after releasing the song "Make War."

They played "The One Armed Boxer vs. The Flying Guillotine," and my close personal favorite, "Note to Self."

See the difference in looks here of how Sonny has evolved since: 

Welcome back, Sonny Moore.

Can't Get Enough: Sigma Feat. Birdy - "Find Me"

By: Amy Cooper, ACRONYM


The video for Sigma's "Find Me" dropped November 2016, but America's obsession with Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown invigorated from that time on. Now Millie is modeling for the likes of Calvin Klein, but we still always see her as Eleven. 

The song itself is infectious, and Birdy's vocals to Sigma's music is glorious, and anytime I listen to it, it gets repeated about 4 times in one sitting.

'House Of Cards' Just Released The Most Ominous Promo Ever

By: Amy Cooper, ACRONYM


Ahead of the Inauguration of Donald Trump, Netflix's Original Series House Of Cards releases a bleak promo of children reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, while revealing an upside down flag that is very dirty and spooky looking, moving on grey skies, on a dark White House. 

WELL THAT'S COMFORTING. 

The moment that Frank Underwood seems like a better president than our real one... 

House Of Cards will begin again on May 30.

The Gorillaz Return When We Need Them Most: For Politics

By: Amy Cooper, ACRONYM


In what NME calls a "Donald Trump protest song," ‘Hallelujah Money’ is a haunting installment of chaotic images featuring Benjamin Clementine singing lead vocals for this new track from Gorillaz.

Murdoc, one of the "characters," or band members, as they like to call themselves, shares that the song was supposed to be a “a lightning bolt of truth in a black night."

Considering the images playing behind Clementine (and yes, Sponge Bob SquarePants makes a cameo appearance at the end), it is noted that this haunting hymn echos one line that hopefully will be taken into consideration given the future we have to look forward to: "We are still humanz."

Watch the video here, and read the lyrics below:

Here is our tree
That primitively grows
When we go to bed
Scare crows from the Far a-East
Come to eat its tender fruits
I have thought that the
Best way to protect our tree
Is by building walls
Walls like unicorns in full glory and galore
Even stronger than the walls of Jericho
Be glad then my friend
That in a few
We shall reap abundantly
What we’d always dreamt of havin
Enough of the starvin
It is love
That is the root of all evil
Not our tree
And thank you my friend
For trusting me
Hallelujah Money
Hallelujah Money
How will we know
When the morning comes
We are still humanz.
How will we know?
How will we dream?
How will we love?
How will we know?
Don’t worry my friend
If this be the end
Then so shall it be
Until we say so
Nothing will move
Ah, don’t worry
It is not against our morals
It’s legally tender
Touch my friend
What the whole world, and whole beasts of nations desire: power
Hallelujah Money
Cross the chemtrail sun
Hallelujah Money

(Lyrics posted from NME)
