Phoenix drops new single!

French band Phoenix is at it again. Leaving fans wanting more since Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, they dropped their new single, “Entertainment,” a couple of days ago. The first single off their new album Bankrupt, set to come out April 23rd, continues their trend of laid-back music that you can find yourself dancing to. The synthy, upbeat sound of the song is something to be enjoyed as we all look forward to the coming springtime.

Groups Cover Taylor Swift

Whether you love her or hate her, no one can deny that Taylor Swift is still pretty popular. With that being said American duo Timeflies, known for their Timeflies Tuesday covers, has decided to cover Swift by creating a medley of her songs.

While you’re at it, check out quintet Walk off the Earth’s a cappella cover of “I Knew You Were Trouble” featuring KRNFX. There’s some pretty good beat boxing in there.
