Holy. Fucking. Shit.
I had Ubisoft's 'Watch_Dogs'
pre-ordered when it was supposed to be out last Fall. And I've been anticipating the game in general for some time before that. But this new trailer, which focuses on the game's digital recreation of the city of Chicago, just upped the ante big time!
hits the streets May 27th.
"Born to Die", the new Hylas Films-directed video from King Khan & The Shrines features some pretty heavy magickal death and rebirth imagery.
I dig it.
That the visuals were made to accompany a song that's such a high energy Psychadelic Garage Rock workout just makes it all the more fabulous.
I dig that too.
"Born to Die" is from King Khan & The Shrines' most recent album, 'Idle No More'
, which is in stores now on the Merge Records label.

Yesterday, for no particular reason, I decided I should invest in a membership in Sony's PlayStation Plus service.
If you're not aware, it's a subscription-based service that gives members access to free game downloads, game previews, discounts on items in the PlayStation store, online saves, and other junk.
So far I've downloaded the recent reboot of 'Tomb Raider'
, and bank-heist FPS 'Pay Day 2'
, with more free downloads on the way.
That means my one year subscription to PlayStation Plus, which cost just under $50, has already paid for itself!
PlayStation Plus has our full endorsement.
I used to listen to Apathy rhyme on Connecticut college radio about 20 years ago.
His output as a recording artist since then has been a bit hit and miss with me.
I ain't mad at his newest single, "The Grand Leveler", or the video, where he represents for the Widow's Son something fierce.
"The Grand Leveler" is from Ap's forthcoming record 'Connecticut Casual'
, which is out June 3rd on Dirty Version Records.
Veteran Ohio emcee/beatmaker Blueprint plays a serial killer who hunts record collectors for their breakbeats in the new video for the title track to his new LP "Respect the Architect".
'Respect the Architect'
, which features gust spots from Illogic and Count Bass D, is due out, in a myriad of formats, April 22nd, via Blueprint's own Weightless Records imprint.
Today marks the release of 'Burial at Sea: Episode Two'
, the last piece of 'BioShock Infinite'
DLC, and the final hurrah for the Irrational Games studio, which was shuttered by it's founder Ken Levin earlier this year.
remains my favorite gaming title of 2013, and the 'Burial at Sea'
content, which has brought the story full circle, back to the underwater city of Rapture from the first and second games, has only bolstered my satisfaction with the latest entry in the 'BioShock'
ended on a shocking cliffhanger, so I'm pretty excited to see where this entry, which focuses on Elizabeth, who you now play as, takes the twisted tale where there's always a lighthouse, a man, and a city.
It's already downloaded and waiting on my PS3 now.
The kids in RATKING are just a few of the young artists held up as poster children for a supposed resurgence of underground New York Rap over the last few years.
They're finally poised to release their debut album, and if their newest single "So Sick Stories" is any indication, convert a ton of fans to their cause in the process.
The track features a chorus from their homie, UK Punk-Hop crooner King Krule, in addition to the mindbendingly diverse flows of group members Wiki and Hak.
It's a style of Hip-Hop that hasn't made a lot of noise outside its own little niche in a while, so it's refreshing to hear it get cats excited on a world wide level.
RATKINGS's debut album 'So It Goes'
is out April 8th via Hot Charity/XL Records.
