New Video from No Doubt (FINALLY): Settle Down

What's this?!?! A new video from No Doubt?!?! Our prayers have been answered! Here is the first single in Lord knows how many years from one of our favorite bands, No Doubt. We are diggin' the Bollywood effect in this video from the vibrant colors on the trucks to Gwen Stefani's pants:

(Whoa, not the best picture of her)

We are loving the fact that our favorite artists are coming back to the music scene after taking way too long of a hiatus (*cough* Garbage and Fiona Apple are two of them). Who knows? Maybe Dr. Dre will surprise us with the unexpected release of Detox this year? A girl can dream, can't she? 

New Music/Artists We Love: Kendrick Lamar - Swimming Pools (Drank)

Here's yet another banger from Kendrick Lamar. We are obsessed with this Compton, CA-based MC's music (Yes, we had to bold and underline it - writing that statement in caps would've been pushing it). His flow is reminiscent of that found in a member of Bone Thugs N Harmony from the speed of his delivery to the high-to-low-to-high pitch fluctuations in his tone. His intelligent lyrics and his incredible word play are two of the many things we love about Kendrick Lamar. We can't wait to see what else is in store for this talented MC in the future.
