New York electro band KOPPS return with a slamming new one named My Gold after staying silent for many a month this year. My Gold is a high energy romper, a noisy stomper, and a zestful groover. Viscous indie dance meets electrifying funk and infectious pop on the booming, fizzing jam, which is possibly my favorite KOPPS work, if not counting their guest stint on Joywave’s terrific Tongues. The enthralling track is available now on iTunes.
Let’s hope that Zac Efron doesn’t have any real EDM aspirations, because America has spoken, and it wants him to step away from the mixer. Just how badly did the star’s new DJ drama do at the box-office this weekend? Put it this way: The Adventures Of Pluto Nash was a bigger hit. We Are Your Friends, Efron’s latest ode to the transformative power of brohood, grossed $1.8 million on more than 2,300 screens. That’s the third worst wide-release debut in history, behind only that famously underperforming Oogieloves movie and the butt-ugly animated flop Delgo. Has the High School Musical crowd grown out of its crush? Or is this some sort of calculated attempt on the part of Efron Nation to get their idol out of the frat house of twentysomething stardom and back into the crooners ghetto of East High School, where he’ll be all theirs again?
