DWNTWN Release “Heroine” Music Video

DWNTWN Release “Heroine” Music Video

Indie pop quartet DWNTWN have released the music video for their latest single, “Heroine.”

The track exposes a more vulnerable and personal side to lyricist and lead singer Jamie Leffler, who penned the song in memory of her late father who passed away due to addiction.

The video shot on the ‘love locks’ bridge in Paris features Leffler performing the track as vintage home videos that the band “found online” intertwine with Leffler’s performance. Be warned, you might shed a tear or two. We did, it’s a great video and track.

Check it out, below.

Artist Spotlight: David Rosales Q&A

Artist Spotlight: David Rosales Q&A

Happy Tuesday!

Let’s kick-off the week by introducing you to singer-songwriter David Rosales.

Reminiscent of artists such as Ryan AdamsAmos Lee, and Ryan Bingham, Rosales shakes things up with a broad sonic palate rooted in American folk, blues and country. The perfect sound for this summer heat.

We recently sat down for a Q&A with Rosales. We asked about his sophomore EP, the writing process, who he’d like to collaborate with, etc. Check out our Q&A, below and be sure to purchase a copy of David’s new EP, Along The Way on iTunes.

1.) Your new EP is titled ‘Along The Way,’ why did you choose that title.
Does it have a significant meaning?

- It’s a lyric from a song on the album (“Too Young to Know Better”). It seemed to sum up how the album came about and where I’m at in life. Things are rolling along nicely and I’m thankful for that.

2.) You worked with Matt Grundy & Paul Clark on the EP. How was it working with them?

- Matt & Paul are a great bunch of scoundrels to work with. Always a lot of fun. They are so very talented and can really see the smoke through the trees.

3.) What was the writing process like?

- It was a very organic and natural process. I really quite enjoyed it. I gathered ideas I had been courting last Fall and wrote my tail off. Finishing all ideas not matter how off the wall they were.

4.) We listened to your first single, “Too Young To Know Better” and we
absolutely love it. It has a really chill sound to it and the lyrics are pretty interesting. Is it a biographical song about losing the person that you love?

- Thank you, that’s very kind. I’m glad you enjoyed it. It is a mix of people and events that have happened in my life. So in that respect it is autobiographical, but, no, it’s not about one singular person or event.

5.) Do all of the tracks have the same vibe as “Too Young To Know Better”
or do you experiment a bit with new sounds?

- No, not really. Each song stands on it’s own and is unique in their own way. There’s a bit of blues, rock, country and folk on the EP.

6.) Is there an artist that you want to work with in the future?

- There are so many amazing artists out there that inspire me. I think it would be a lot of fun to work with Jack Johnson in some capacity.

7.) What would you like to tell your fans? (it can be a thanks, advice, etc.)

- Thanks for all the love and support… Really proud of this new music video for “Too Young to Know Better.” Check it out, below.

Super Villains Come to Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes (2.0 Edition)

Super Villains Come to Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes (2.0 Edition)

Disney Interactive officially announced that a trio of popular Super Villains will be entering the world of Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes (2.0 Edition) - Ronan the Accuser from Guardians of the Galaxy, Green Goblin from Spider-Man and the infamous Loki, God of Mischief from The Avengers. Whether it’s flexing their unstoppable powers for all things evil in their respective Play Sets, the updated Toy Box 2.0, or the newly added structured Toy Box Games, these Super Villains are forces to be reckoned with.

Ronan: Wielding the Universal Weapon, the ruthless Ronan the Accuser is an unstoppable force in both the Guardians of the Galaxy universe and in the Toy Box mode. Cloaking, energy blasts and super human strength are all part of the powerful arsenal at Ronan’s disposal as he vies to become the mightiest villain in the galaxy.

Green Goblin: Armed with Pumpkin Bombs, the brilliantly nefarious Goblin uses his Electro Shock Gauntlet to dispatch opponents handily in the world of Spider-Man. Super human strength, spectacular super jumps and the ability to charge his bombs into more powerful bolas all make him a villainous force to be reckoned with for both symbiotes and Super Heroes alike.

Loki: The God of Mischief is at your command when you play as Loki in Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes. Whether hassling Thor and Hulk in the Avengers Play Set or exploring the treasures found in the Toy Box mode, Loki’s sure to have a few tricks up his sleeve. From defeating his opponents with a powerful scepter to projecting decoy versions that bewilder even the cleverest of heroes, Loki is the villain you’ll love to hate. Creating mischief has never been so fun!

Additional characters for Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes will be announced in the coming months. Check out character images and trailer for Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes (2.0 Edition), below.
