The London-based Jungle meld pop, funk, and electro into an infectious mix on its latest video, "Time", from their forthcoming self-titled LP.

If Jungle isn’t on your radar now, then adjust your sights. (Although don’t say we didn’t warn you!) This group, based out of London are in the business of making pop music that is impossible to get out of your head. Their latest video, the positively infectious “Time”, is an appropriate teaser for the band’s forthcoming full-length, self-titled debut, which brings together pop, funk, and electro into a striking melange.

Sir Paul McCartney has released another video from his most recent studio effort, New, the folksy "Early Days".

Though Paul McCartney‘s legacy is primarily defined by perfecting the pop formula with his cohorts in the Beatles, in recent years, with LPs like Memory Almost Full and last year’s New, he has continued to try to push himself into other musical directions. (He also tried his hand at ballet, but some things are best left forgotten).

Let’s celebrate Ringo Starr’s 74th birthday with cartoons.

You can stream "Gotchoo" by the the Birmingham, Alabama hip-hop outfit the Green Seed, exclusively on PopMatters.

“Gotchoo”, a track from the forthcoming debut album by the Birmingham, Alabama hip-hop outfit the Green Seed, promises “beats by the pound” and “flavor in the rhyme” within its first 30 seconds. The album itself, entitled Drapetomania (say druh-pet-oh-may-nee-uh) promises to be a firm statement of intent for the group, who take simple beats and loops and, in the spirit of great-hip hop, aim to elevate them into new rhythmic territories.

There's nothing lightweight about neo-shoegazers Lightfoils on their new album, Hierarchy.

There’s nothing lightweight about Lightfoils, not considering the heavy-lidded dream-pop the Chicago group creates on its new album Hierarchy. Sure, there are some atmospheric wisps of melody, mostly courtesy of Jane Zabeth’s vocals, but Lightfoils’ neo-shoegaze sound mostly tips the scales at the weightier end of the genre with their dense, swirling guitars and substantial rhythms. Premiering here on PopMatters, Lightfoils’ Hierarchy is out today via Saint Marie Records.
