Daily Round-Up For February 10, 2014
Hello awesome people! Welcome to the Daily Round-Up, redOrbit’s one and only collection of all the latest, greatest, and most interesting music news of the day. We wish you a happy Monday and good luck in the upcoming week. Let’s get right to business.
Yesterday marked 50 years to the day that the iconic rock band The Beatles first appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show and sparked their illustrious career. To commemorate the occasion, NPR put together a tribute piece, and popular British rock band Arctic Monkeys performed a cover of The Beatles song All My Loving at their show at Madison Square Garden. You can check both of these out at NPR and Stereogum, respectively.
The Kanye West-designed shoe the Red October, also known as the Yeezy 2, debuted this Sunday for Nike, selling out within 10 minutes. The landmark shoe was priced highly, but was so overwhelmingly popular Nike couldn’t keep them on the shelves. You can read the whole story back at Consequence of Sound.
The tracklist for the new album for Rick Ross debuted this weekend. Among the 16 tracks, the album is set to feature appearances from Jay Z, The Weeknd, Kanye West, Jeezy, and Lil Wayne. Guest spots have never been a weak point for Rick Ross, but the promise of all these all-star rappers is making this new record look more and more interesting! Check out the full story and tracklist back at The Line of Best Fit.
Always prolific, electronic artist Four Tet has released a brand new full mix of music, which includes previously unreleased collaborative work that he did with Burial, as well as a remix of Mariah Carey. You can listen to it in full back at The Line of Best Fit.
Despite Justin Beiber’s extensive recent legal trouble, a picture still managed to surface this weekend of Beiber and rapper T.I. sharing studio space together. The meaning of the picture is still as of yet unknown, but at least it is proof that Beiber is still currently in the country. You can check out the full story back at 2dopeboyz.
Finally, electronic music blog the Dancing Astronaut has a wonderful tradition called the Sunday Morning Medicine, in which tracks are compiled that are intended to soothe, relax, and restore any music fan after a long weekend of activity.
