Sia Tops Billboard 200 in Sluggish Sales Week: This Week in Music

July 17th, 2014 8:30pm EDT
Sia Tops Billboard 200
Describing album sales as merely mediocre this week would be quite the understatement. Sales were nothing short of horrific, abysmal, and subpar. That said, Australian singer/songwriter Sia experienced a ‘good’ week contextually as her album 1000 Forms of Fear debuted at #1. The less optimistic news for the industry itself is that the #1 album only sold 52,000 copies. Think about it – the top album in the United States only 52,000 people bought!

No albums came close to the 100,000 copies mark this week – sheesh! Last week, only Trey Songz’s Trigga was able to get over the 100,000 cop...

The Revenant: Punk Rock Gets A Fresh Start

The Revenant: Punk Rock Gets A Fresh Start
What do you do if you're a musician and the band you're in falls apart? If you're the punk rockers known as The Revenant - Derik Envy, Kevin Besignano, Nathan Walker and Trevor Jackson - you dust yourself off and come together to get a fresh start. BFTV recently spoke with Derik and Kevin to discuss forming the band and their upcoming debut album.

"I really feel like we're actually a real band. And I think that's somewhat rare nowadays. I think exactly what you see is what you get," Derik told us. "We're not hiding behind gimmicks. We're not hiding behind autotune. Everything, we actually ...

You Won't Believe How This Youtuber Sings Jason Derulo's Hit 'Talk Dirty To Me'

You Won't Believe How This Youtuber Sings Jason Derulo's Hit 'Ta
Youtuber 'Ten Second Songs' covers popular songs in a way that's maybe a little different than what you're used to. He takes a song as sings it in the style of different artists - sometimes artists whose styles varies greatly from that of the original singer. His most recent project takes Jason Derulo's 'Talk Dirty To Me' which he sings in styles that run from 'Slayer' and 'White Zombie' to 'Hootie and the Blowfish' and 'Cab Calloway.' Needless to say, he nails it on pretty much every rendition.

For more of Ten Second Songs really awesome renditions, you can check out his channel HERE. G...

CD Review: Various Artists - 'Punk Goes 90’s 2'

April 7th, 2014 9:13pm EDT
CD Review: Various Artists - 'Punk Goes 90’s 2'
The thing about Punk Goes 90’s 2, the 15th (yes, you read that right) installment of Fearless Records’ long running Punk Goes… series and second in the Punk Goes 90’s line, is, as with the majority of, if not all, its predecessors, a potpourri of mixed results. However, in the case of Punk Goes 90’s 2, the results are more often than not positive. For starters, Get Scared plays things close to the vest on Lit’s “My Own Worst Enemy,” as does the Color Morale on Foo Fighters’ “Everlong.” This approach doesn’t always work however, as Mayday Parade (Bush – “Comedown”) and Yellowcard (Smashing P...

CD Review: The Hotelier - 'Home, Like Noplace Is There' (Tiny Engines)

CD Review: The Hotelier - 'Home, Like Noplace Is There' (Tiny En
Perhaps it’s the new album or the new label (Tiny Engines) or maybe it’s the new name, but the Hotelier, former The Hotel Year, have never sounded better than they do on their sophomore release Home, Like Noplace Is There. And that’s really saying something considering how strong, and utterly criminally underrated, their debut album, 2011’s It Never Goes Out, truly was. Though the subdued but thoroughly aptly titled opener “An Introduction To The Album” is a bit off-putting in terms of initial impact, what the track lacks in punch it makes up for in emotional output, spewing forth mainly fr...

Blink 182 At The Red Bull Soundstage Concert Review And Encore (Video)

November 8th, 2013 1:48pm EST
Blink 182
“It’s way too early to play rock music,” Mark Hoppus announced to the amped up crowd. It was 11:45 a.m. on a Thursday and for most bands it’s far too early in the day to be awake let alone play a six song set. But for Blink 182, comprised of Hoppus, Tom DeLonge, and Travis Barker, and their dedicated fans at the KROQ Red Bull Soundstage, it was the perfect time.

The Red Bull Soundstage is a small room only fit for a few hundred people, allowing for an intimate musical atmosphere that most fans will never get the experience. Ever since the dinky office space was transformed into a rocking s...

Get To Know Texas Punk Rockers American Fangs

November 4th, 2013 2:15pm EST
American Fangs
Punk rockers American Fangs are striving to take a bite out of music. The guys who love loud guitars and the Keanu Reeves flick Point Break are hitting the road this winter, and before then, frontman Gabe Cavazos dialed up BFTV to explain what it is they think they're doing.

First of all, just like you don't judge a book by its cover, don't judge this Houston-based band by its name. "This may not seem important, but for us I think the band name can kind of be misleading. I think that people immediately think it's something a lot more aggressive than it is," Gabe explained. "We're kind of a...
