Kavinsky - Outrun

I was going to post about Random Access Memories, but I'm sure some of you are already sick of it– briefly, I love it. While this post isn't about Daft Punk, it is in the same vein. 

Kavinsky's Outrun is also an awesome electronic masterpiece. It screams 80s and embodies the Ferarri Testerosa. It could also be a soundtrack to a sweet 80s film like The Wraith. Most likely this album will be famous for the track "Nightcall" which was featured in the movie Drive (a must see).

At any rate, download this album straight away. You'll have it on repeat for a few weeks, and then again in a few months.  As of this post, Amazon has the full album for just 6 bucks.

Amon Amarth - Deciever of the Gods

If you're not already an Amon Amarth fan and you consider yourself a metalhead, then you're missing out.  While I wasn’t a fan of their last album, Surtur Rising, Amon is back with a vengance. Deciever of the Gods is right up there with Twilight of the Thunder God, Fate of the Norns and With Odin on Our Side. Try not banging your head. \m/

As of this writing, Amazon also has Deceiver and older Amon albums on sale. For $6, you best pick up this album.  

I guess you can catch Amon on tour this summer with some other shitty metal bands at Mayhem Festival (if that's your thing). Personally, I'll wait for the headline tour. 

Nine Inch Nails: halo twenty eight & wallpapers

Today, is a great day. After 5 years Trent Reznor has resurrected Nine Inch Nails to share a new single and announce his the new album Hesitation Marks September 3rd release date.

So I've got some treats for y'all. First, I'm hoping you've already pressed play on the video above to hear the first single Came Back Haunted.

Then, because I'm in love with the new iteration of the NIN identity for this album, I took the liberty of recreating the logo and some desktop wallpapers to go with it. Download yours below:
