This new Weezer cover that surfaced today is a must share. I love Toto’s epic 80s anthem Africa, cheesy or not, and apparently, fans have been clamoring at Weezer to cover it. And now they have! I was fortunate enough to catch Rivers Cuomo doing a solo show just a few weeks ago at Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco. He did a flurry of covers, but it would’ve been sweet to hear this Africa cover live, too. You can stream/download Weezer’s rendition, here.

AJR’s Sober Up, which features Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo, is a heckuva big tune right now lighting up all the alt charts. I can’t resist the infectious track every time it comes on the radio, so here we are, taking in the new music video AJR just dropped yesterday for Sober Up. AJR’s breakout single is like an earthy approach on twenty one pilots’ genre defying music. It’s a foot stomping, guitar strumming hit from the NYC band, a trio of brothers who are more than making their mark with their resounding music. Sober Up can be found on AJR’s debut album The Click, out on iTunes, here.

We don’t have much too long to wait before Weezer releases yet another highly anticipated full length. Pacific Daydream arrives on October 27th via Crush Music / Atlantic Records. The legendary band has revealed a new infectious song off the album, and it’s quite the effulgent and effervescent charmer. Happy Hour boasts a synthy glimmering veneer and a contagious cadence. It feels like Weezer is channeling a combination of Mutemath and Bear Hands. Weezer will be gracing the bay with an appearance at Live 105′s Not So Silent Night. Find out more about this year’s holiday festivities and its stellar two night lineup, here.

We’ve made it pretty clear how doubly excited we are for RAC’s new album and for his appearance at Outside Lands Music Festival this August, too. The Grammy nominated producer unleashed a dazzling summertime prancer off of EGO earlier this month in the form of I Still Wanna Know, which features none other than Rivers Cuomo of Weezer fame. Let’s twirl about in ecstasy to a lifting remix of that song by Los Angeles producer Goldroom. He amplifies the song’s balmy buoyancy by administering a glowing dance pop treatment on the jocund remix. Goldroom will also be at Outside Lands Music Festival later this summer. It’s going to be a mighty fine weekend of uplifting and vibrant music with these two at hand. Pre-order RAC’s album EGO ahead of its release on July 14th, here

Yesterday, I found out on RAC’s socials that he’d announced his new album EGO, out on July 14th. After I did a requisite happy dance around the room, I noticed that the Grammy award winning producer was asking his multitude of fans to guess who the featured artists might be on EGO. It’s a tough challenge considering all the musicians who would love to work with the esteemed artist, and I certainly would never have guessed the guest on today’s new single, I Still Wanna Know. This summertime prancer and luminous dazzler features none other than Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo, who lends his vocals and a guitar solo to the heartwarming indie dance anthem. I Still Wanna Know also feature additional production by Classixx. Turns out,

Allen Anjos, Classixx, and Rivers Cuomo make a sublime team. Together, they’ve crafted a dance pop gem that ventures into alt pop and pop rock territory. The sleek throbbing, riff soaring spectacular is available to stream/download, here. You can pre-order EGO, here. I’ll be awaiting that ebullient RAC dance party when he plays Outside Lands Music Festival come August.

Zeds Dead’s star studded Northern Lights album is most certainly one of the highlight electronic dance albums of the year, and red hot single Too Young is easily one of the top jams of this fall. We dive into the jaunty snapping dance track via its adorable stop motion animation music video tonight as we whip our heads from side to side to Rivers Cuomo and Pusher T’s lilting vocals. This playful charming mid-tempo treat showcases this Canadian production duo’s imaginative vision and versatile skillset. Snag your copy of Zeds Dead’s Northern Lights from iTunes.

I’ve been such a fan of New York electropop act Big Data since the moment I heard his Joywave collaboration Dangerous, a song so infectious that I immediately decided it was a must for my camp’s Burning Man playlist soon afterwards. The producer’s latest is one of his heaviest hitting electro tracks yet, plus Snowed In features none other than Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo! It’s a very surprising union, and River’s voice unexpectedly works very well with Big Data’s thrilling, vibrant electronic production. If this is what being snowed in is like (hey, I’m from California), wow, I need to get out to the East Coast more often. Snowed In is off Big Data’s new album 2.0, out March 24th via Warner Bros.

Weezer – Cleopatra

September 11, 2014

If you haven’t listened to new Weezer tune Cleopatra yet, you’re in for a treat. It’s only the second taste we’ve heard off their long awaited ninth album Everything Will Be Alright In The End, whose announcement has thrown the droves of die hard Weezer fans of the world into a frenzy. The track certainly fits Rivers’ description of the new album as focused on the impermanence of everything we take for granted. Their new album will be out October 7 on Republic Records, and even more awesome comes the news that Bethany Cosentino (Best Coast), Benjamin Gibbard (Death Cab For Cutie), Chaz Bundick (Toro Y Moi), and many others are guests on the album.
