Jack Kennedy and British vocalist Hannah Melbourne of NightBus have debuted their new interactive video for "When The Night Time Comes." It uses some new and "innovative" technology called 3-Way Stereo Technology. Head to Mashable to watch it.
The track, which was recorded in a groundbreaking and unique sonic experience – three infectious singles in one – creates an innovative way to hear a song taking note of the way two friends in today’s pop culture listen to music by sharing one set of earbuds. The left and right tracks are 100% sonically different. When you listen on the left, you hear the song sung by Hannah backed by an electronic dance pop track; on the right, it’s Jack’s...

Pardoning my first-ever horrible pun headline - Drake talks in the upcoming issue of Rolling Stone about Macklemore's infamous Instagram of an apology he texted to Kendrick Lamar upon winning the Grammy for Best Rap Album last month. More exactly, he calls the move "wack as fuck."
I was like, 'You won. Why are you posting your text message? Just chill. Take your W, and if you feel you didn't deserve it, go get better—make better music... It felt cheap. It didn't feel genuine. Why do that? Why feel guilt? You think those guys would pay homage to you if they won? This is how the world works: He made a brand of music that appealed to more people than me, Hov, Kanye and Kendrick. Whether...

AC ANGRY took some time to fill out our interview, you can read that here.
We wanted a name that sounded like kick-ass rock ‘n’ roll. As we were going through a list with suggestions, AC ANGRY was the one that made the cut. To us AC ANGRY sounds like an American muscle-car going at full throttle. It also can be interpreted as raging power, with the AC meaning alternative current.
