  • Portugal. the Man's Hip Hop Idol Does "Modern Jesus"

    November 4, 2013   For musicians, song remixes can happen any day, but it’s not every day your hip hop idol remixes your hit. That’s what happened to Portugal. the Man when the Beastie Boys’ Mike D. remixed “Modern Jesus” off their latest album, Evil Friends.  "The dude is a Beatle, in our book, and to get to work with a guy like Mike D. is and always has been at the top of our list since we were kids," Gourley said. For some reason, Mike D’s trappy cut is getting us even more pumped for PTM’s upcoming Austin City Limits episode. Listen below.  [Photo: Austin City Limits TV]

  • Eye on the YTAs: Not Your Average Awards Show

    November 3, 2013   "YouTube is a place for people to make things and put them out there for everybody to see. We should be making things too," says actor Jason Schwartzman. Tonight, many things will be made, live and unscripted, at the first ever YouTube Music awards. Hosted by Schwartzman and directed by Spike Jonze (Adaptation, Being John Malkovich), the show will attempt to create live music videos while the show is happening, in addition to live performances by a slew of artists, including OTW featured band Walk off the Earth. "There is a certain sense of relative ‘WTF’ around here," said Schwartzman. Good thing, because we were getting bored of the VMAs anyways. Watch the first ever YouTube Awards today on YouTube at 6pm EST (that’s 3pm for all you West Coasters).

  • New NONONO: Listen to "Scared"

    November 2, 2013   Not gonna lie, we’ve been a bit smitten with NONONO ever since we interviewed the band last month (if you missed it, check it out here). Now, we’ve got even more reasons to obsess - two, to be exact. First off is the blippy, sound confetti version of “Pumpin Blood” by New York DJ duo The Jane Doze. The track hit the Top 10 on Hype Machine, and NONONO even shouted out the remix this week. Listen to it here. NONONO also debuted a new song yesterday called “Scared.” It’s a swervy, sultrier cut in the vein of “Like The Wind,” and much moodier than some of the band’s more upbeat moments on their Pumpin Blood EP. Listen to it here.
