Get ready to jam out with some of our favorite up-and-coming artists, plus celebrate new stuff from those you already know and love
Marlene Oak | "Slip Away"
Stockholm's Marlene Oak doesn't sound much like ABBA, but we don't mind. Her powerful vocals and folk influences sound more at home on this side of the Atlantic.
Disco Shrine | "Up In The Air"
Disco Shrine's powerful single describes the journey of her immigrant parents. Backed by infectious beats, Disco Shrine belts out a familiar story of chasing the American dream.
Emily Rowed | Pinball
Emily Rowed's cheeky new video takes us straight to the desert. "It was well over 100 degrees when we shot the video and there was no air conditioning in the motel," she said. "I was as sweaty as I was falling in love."Facebook | Twitter | Instagram
Night Lights | Talk to Me
Night Lights - Talk to Me (Official Music Video) www.youtube.com
If you ever wondered what indie synthpop would have sounded like in the 90s, this is it. The new video from Night Lights is full of neon windbreakers, landlines, and plastic watches.
Cooper & Gatlin | Break
Cooper & Gatlin - Break (Acoustic) [Official Music Video ] www.youtube.com
Cooper & Gatlin's latest video is simple but doesn't hold back on aesthetics. The all-too relatable lyrics and intricate acoustic guitar shine.
Sydney Wright | Seiche
Sydney Wright - Seiche(Official Video) www.youtube.com
The title track from Sydney Wright's upcoming debut album is an anthem for third wave feminism, and the accompanying video reflects the collective search for freedom from societal expectations.
The Deep Hollow | Weary Traveler
Americana trio The Deep Hollow cranked it up a notch for their sophomore album. "I wasn't totally sold on having a fuller sound. I was a little nervous going in," frontman Micah Walker noted. "I was prepared to do it the way we did the last one. I'm really happy with the way it turned out, but it is a little different than our debut."
Nebula Rosa | Bengala
Bilingual psych pop group Nebula Rosa's debut album puts a spin on traditional American pop with a refreshing combination of Latin beats, code switching lyrics, and bluesy American guitars.
Fickle Friends | Broken Sleep
80s-inspired, dance-pop group Fickle Friends' new EP is a lycra-clad, neon-pink trip to the past. An unapologetically catchy, synthesized daydream, this EP comes hot on the heels of the band's debut album You Are Someone Else.

There's a big problem with the trailer for Morbius, Sony's upcoming Marvel outing that is definitely not part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe even though it has Michael Keaton reprising his role as Vulture (please let us keep our license, Disney!).
See if you can spot it.
MORBIUS - Teaser Trailer www.youtube.com
If you answered, "Sampling Beethoven's 'Für Elise' to line up with blue-tinted action shots is the absolute lowest effort, brain-dead attempt to signify 'gothic vampire movie' in the entire history of movie trailers," you're correct, but that's still not the biggest problem with Morbius. No, the biggest problem is that Morbius is played by Jared Leto.
The best thing about movies is that sometimes they feature cats.
Cats are great. They are furry purr-boxes that usually hate you. Whether they're the hero, the villain, or just kind of there, nothing beats watching a movie and seeing a cat on-screen. So we've compiled a list of the best REAL cats in movies. That means the movie needs to feature a REAL cat instead of an animated cat, because otherwise this would just be a list of cartoon cats. These cats are REAL, and they're works of art:
