Metronomy – The Upsetter [VIDEO]

Our favorite UK electro-pop group, Metronomy, has just released a brand new video for their single “The Upsetter”. But before the video, let’s talk about the song. Although “The Upsetter” is not a dance track, it’s still poppy. The group describes it as a “campfire singalong” of sorts. With mellow rhythm and meaningful lyrics, it’s a beautiful soundtrack to the video. Now, the video. It’s immensely creative and artistically shot. The location is beautiful and the whole theme and story […]

Night III of III Points

Night III of the Second Annual III Points Festival. The weekend of indie and hipster-electronic music is coming to a close. It felt hotter this night of any other. Which was weird since the crowd definitely felt lighter than Saturday’s festival. The first set we saw Sunday night was Com Truise. DietRadio.fm has been a fan of Com Truise for a few years now and we were stoked for the chance to catch a live set. He brought his usual […]

Night II of III Points

Coming back to III Points for Night II was something like returning to high school on Monday after the weekend. This feeling of community and common interest, essentially the purpose of the III Points Festival. There seemed to be a larger turn out for Night II. The crowd quickly thickened as it neared time for Chet Faker. We took a peek around backstage before his set, the energy back there was motivated, focused, thick with intention. We caught a quick […]

London Duo Releases Wildly Good Music

Besides having epic music videos, Jungle’s music is refreshingly entertaining and he’s satisfying that missing urge for quintessential R&B that’s missing inside us all. Jungle is a duo based out of London and they jumped onto the scene out of nowhere with their self-titled debut album┬áJungle. The music within the 13-track album can be classified as pop electronic R&B. You know how music goes nowadays, you could slap four or five different tags on it and it still makes sense. […]

BANKS: Live at Grand Central Miami

It was short but so very sweet… Atleast, that was the case for me. This show was my first taste of BANKS and up until now I didn’t actually have much previous knowledge of who or what ‘BANKS’ was, expect for the random mentions via the team and friends. Seeing and hearing her in action, I’m definitely glad to be rid of my ignorance. Justin Ritchie The vibes were right and the energy level was…as the kids say…turnt up, all […]
