If Ryan Adams proved anything this week with his cover album of Taylor Swift’s 1989, it’s that a good song should be able to hold up in any genre. This is a practice Postmodern Jukebox knows well.
Born out of their YouTube roots, the band transforms pop songs into different genres, typically bringing modern pop songs back in time when bass strings were plucked on an upright and horn sections weren’t imitated on keyboards.
Most recently the rotating cast of musicians tackled Outlast’s “Hey Ya!,” turning the Grammy Award winning anthem into an almost unrecognizable soul song of the 1960s.
We’ve all seen those girls. The ones that want to look like they’re improving themselves while they sit in Starbucks and drink a venti pumpkin spice latte with extra whipped cream. Now they have their own theme song. The song for girls who wear activewear, to do not-active things.
Rapper Lil Dickey wanted a big music video for his new song, but in keeping with the song’s title $ave Dat Money he wanted to do it on the cheap. Through a bit of leg work, networking and begging he pulled off one of the most epic music videos ever
Did you know the United States Air Force had a rock band? Did you also know that they kick some serious butt? Their latest video titled American Airman just dropped and although it has a bit of a country twang to it, it’s good to see they’re getting better. The new video looks amazing and shows they’ve come a long way since the band started out a couple years ago. I’d be able to make something this amazing too if I had a couple billion dollars worth of equipment at my disposal for a video shoot.
The U.S. Air Force Band’s Max Impact has made unique contributions to our Airman culture, writing career field-specific songs for the Honor Guard (“Stand”) and Air Force Special Operations (“Send Me”). However, for their next project, the members of the band wanted to broaden the scope of their message. The result of this desire for force-wide inclusivity is the song “American Airman,” which was written by Technical Sgt. Nalani Quintello and Senior Master Sgt. Matt Ascione, both members of Max Impact.
