Hear Noah Cyrus’ Gloomy New Song With Mo, ‘We Are…’
Music News

Noah Cyrus released her first new song of 2018, the catchy kiss-off “We Are…” featuring MØ. Cyrus is set to release her debut album NC-17 this year. Similar to a few of her past singles, Cyrus aims towards anthemic reflections on her generation.

‘Dragon Ball FighterZ’ May Be Elbowing ‘Marvel vs. Capcom’ Out Of Esports
News

Perhaps it shouldn’t be surprising that Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite is being left off the main stage at EVO this year. The critical reception has been middling at best, and there are some weird thematic departures that cements the game as this weird sequential half-step before a bolder, more official numbered sequel, (seriously, how are you going to release an MvC game without any X-Men on the roster?) Still though, you’ve got to feel for guys like Richard Nguyen, who...

Nintendo Talks Labo Origins and Wanting ‘Every Single Person’ To Own A Switch
News

When Nintendo announced Labo last month, its novel use of cardboard struck some as a bizarre choice for a video game peripheral. However, according to Nintendo, at least in Japanese culture, the choice kind of made sense.  “I’m sure we surprised everyone with the use of cardboard, but it’s not so far-fetched if you consider how familiar the material is, at least to Japanese people who, from a young age, use it for play and as a material for creating...

The tentacle-faced traveling salesman known as Xur has returned to Destiny 2, and this week he’s hanging out in the Giant’s Scar region on Io.

British Americana performer Jade Bird offers a stripped down, singer-songwriter’s take on an international club hit as she covers Dua Lipa’s “New Rules” in a new live video. Seated on a bare-bones stage and plucking gently on a nylon stringed acoustic guitar, the London-based newcomer rolls effortlessly through Lipa’s pulsating self-empowerment smash. And with understated backing from an upright bass and trumpet, the track takes on a sophisticated, almost jazzy feel. Lipa served as the musical guest on last...

Review: Dashboard Confessional, Emo Icon, Makes Stadium-Size Return
Music News

So much has come to pass in the 15 years since Dashboard Confessional propelled his strummy perpetually wounded boyhood drama to its Gold-record apex. Emo is now the province of Soundcloud rappers, righteous girls, and Drake. Chris Carrabba made his name at the tail-end of the Nineties singing (and shrieking) about winning (and losing) a girl, and now he returns with Crooked Shadows, his first Dashboard Confessional album in more than eight years, with that same romantic fixation holding the...
