23-year old DJ/producer 3LAU has released his new single "We Came to Bang" featuring the seductive vocals of Luciana, accompanied by its violently comical new official video where "furry" mascots fight to the death surrounded by cheerleaders. "We Came to Bang" is 3LAU's follow-up club release to "Vikings," which came out earlier in 2014.

The young but experienced electronic artist first took the scene by storm two years ago, igniting dance parties and crafting beats to the delight of fans worldwide. 3LAU amassed widespread acclaim with two eclectic collections of bootlegs titled "Dance Floor Fifth," and the term continues to describe his unique sound. His second radio single "How You Love Me" has seen over 10 million streams across YouTube, Spotify, and Soundcloud, and is on track to be the most played record of 2014 on SiriusXM's BPM channel.-DocFB

Diagnosis: Fans can expect a busy 2015 from 3LAU, with a slew of announcements on the horizon for the new year.

Breaming! PRINCE Previews & Chats About As Yet Untitled New Album!


Legendary music reviewer and interviewer Jon Bream was invited to Paisley Park late Saturday night in Minneapolis to listen to the new "untitled" PRINCE album. Jon Bream was handing Prince awards and accolades long before a majority of the world had a chance to. You could call Bream a Prince historian, so to speak.

Bream wrote about his experience he had late last night for the Star Tribune, also having to write a review for the Bruno Mars show he saw earlier in the night.

Bream talks about the phone call he got to be at Paisley Park around midnight to listen to the new record and how he is now on Prince time. Warner Bros executives unfortunately are not on Prince time and the music icon has had a hard time reaching them in regards to the new album and more than likely the 30th anniversary remastering of "Purple Rain" due for release sometime this year, right WB?

After 1 A.M., Bream was escorted into studio B at Paisley where the 3RDEYEGIRL members were along with their spouses including the producer of the new Prince record, Joshua Welton who Prince described as a rising producer. His tour manager and a Fox 9 reporter were there as well.

Under The Sheets: Lissie Releases Covers Album Including Danzig, Drake, & Dylan!

Lissie announced the release of her new covers EP, 'Cryin' To You', featuring re-worked versions of Danzig's 'Mother', One Direction's 'Story of My Life', Judas Priest's 'Electric Eye', Drake's 'Hold On, We're Going Home' and Bob Dylan's 'To Ramona".


"The band and I are very excited to release our new covers EP "Cryin' To You". Self produced in our home of Ojai, CA. We were approached to cover "Mother" by Danzig which led to a fun week in the studio that inspired us to lay down some other covers we had either been playing live already or had been wanting to do,"


"I chose "Story of My Life" because it was a current hit with lyrics I could identify with. "Electric Eye" because a friend suggested I check it out after a conversation we'd had about the Internet and privacy. That song was ahead of its time! We've been performing "Hold On, We're Going Home" live and I think it's a really beautiful song. "To Ramona" I'd covered as a solo artist and its message still speaks to me. We've jokingly called what we've made "roller rink folk metal" but as silly as it sounds I think this work is indicative of what's to come. Raw and tough, yet still tender and vulnerable."

Lissie's cover of 'Mother', taken from the EP, has been synced to the trailer of the upcoming blockbuster video game 'Evolve', which has scored over 10 million views in under two weeks on YouTube.

Shakira has released her second single from her self titled album. The single "Empire" starts off with the Colombian singer sounding more like Florence & The Machine or Lorde than herself.

I like it. Better than the song with Rihanna before this.-DocFB

Diagnosis: The first line is "Take off all of your skin".....new way of saying underneath your clothes perhaps...?
