On the eve of his 28th birthday, Machine Gun Kelly released the music video for his song “27.” The track, which was featured on his album bloom, is an ode to fully living until the infamously-damned age of 27. The EST 19XX/Bad Boy/Interscope recording artist delivers the Ryan Hardy-directed visual that begins with a montage of MGK as he’s travelled through his career. The video takes on an analog-film editing aesthetic and continues with tour and studio footage interspersed throughout. MGK just wrapped filming Tommy Lee’s upcoming Motley Crue biopic, The Dirt, and is set to star in Sandra Bullock’s new film, Bird Box. The bloom rapper will join Fall Out Boy on The M A N I A Tour which kicks off on August 29 in Uniondale, NY.

KAILEE MORGUE DEBUTS NEW SINGLE

Kailee Morgue debuts her new single, “F**k U”—listen and share here. “F**k U” was produced by notable producer Dylan Brady (The Neighbourhood, Jesse Rutherford, Goody Grace, Night Lovell, Nessly).

Morgue is set to perform her first-ever headlining show in New York at Baby’s All Right on May 17th—tickets are available now here.

“F**k U” follows Morgue’s breakout track, “Medusa,” which catapulted her into an overnight success last year after she posted a live performance of the song on Twitter. “Medusa” became the title track from her debut EP, which was also released last fall and features her hit single, “Discovery.”

Tattooed, green haired and anime-obsessed 19-year-old Phoenix-born and Los Angeles-based gothic pop siren, Kailee Morgue, casts a sonic spell with her music. A self-described “introvert” and the second oldest of six kids, she found solace in the sounds of fellow sonic sorceresses, such as Stevie Nicks and Gwen Stefani, as well as bands like Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and more. By the age of ten, she picked up her first guitar, began quietly penning music and eventually started posting tracks on Soundcloud.

Between a gig at Jack In The Box in 2016, an 18-year-old Morgue found the beat for her breakout track, “Medusa,” on YouTube and cooked up the single. She first teased the track with a brief Twitter video, and it ignited a viral reaction garnering 100,000 “likes” overnight. Over an airy, minimalistic soundscape, Morgue creates a hypnotic and heartfelt melody with haunting and powerful lyrics. “Medusa” peaked at #1 on Hype Machine, was hailed as “Best Track of the Week” by The New York Times, MTV, The Line of Best Fit and Coup de Main and its video premiered on The FADER. As “Medusa” became an underground phenomenon, Morgue inked a deal with Republic Records in the summer of 2017. Further music is set for release this spring.

Radicalized Loyalties

By: Fabien Truong

In the wake of the Syrian terrorist attacks in France, the UK and elsewhere, there has been a growing concern about the ‘radicalization’ of young Muslims. Deprived areas of Western cities are believed to have become breeding grounds of home-grown extremism. But how do young Muslims growing up in the cities of the West really live?

This book takes us into the housing estates on the outskirts of Paris where we get to know Adama, Radouane, Hassan, Tarik, Marley and a shadowy figure whose name would suddenly and brutally become known to the world at the time of the Charlie Hebdo shootings in Paris in January 2015: Amédy Coulibaly. Seeing Amédy through the eyes of his close friends and these other young Muslim men in the neighbourhoods where they grew up, Fabien Truong uncovers a dense network of competing social loyalties and maps the road these youths take to resolve the conflicts they face: becoming Muslim.

On the peripheries of the modern city, boys become men through their loyalty to their neighbourhood, to their brotherhood, to their intangible family history, to the nation and the ideal of equal opportunities, to capitalism and its promotion of individualism, masculinity and economic success. Yet they need to move away from contradictions fuelled by an insecurity that stems from the pervasiveness of crime, policing and the political emptiness of everyday materialism.

Islam stands, often alone, as a resource or a gateway – as if it were the last route to ‘escape’ without betrayal and to ‘fight’ in a meaningful and noble way. Becoming Muslim does not necessarily lead to the radicalized ‘other’. It is more like a long-distance race, a powerful reconversion of the self that allows for introspection and change. But it can also become a belligerent presentation of the self that transforms a dead-end into a call for arms.

By enabling us to understand ‘them’, this book also helps ‘us’ to understand ourselves and our societies better, as well as shedding valuable light on the new forms of violence we face in a world where one is not born, but rather becomes, a warrior.

WELSHLY ARMS “INDESTRUCTIBLE”

Cleveland based, blues and gospel influenced Alternative band, Welshly Arms debuts their latest song, “Indestructible,” today—listen and share here. The track premiered on Ones To Watch, who says, “prepare yourself for robust guitar strings and a pop-tinged chorus that thrives off of a funkified shuffle.”

Frontman Sam Getz explains the meaning behind “Indestructible,” saying “‘Indestructible’ is about being in love with someone that’s out of your league. You know they’ll never break down and fall for you, but in a way, that’s what makes you want them even more.”

“Indestructible” follows Welshly Arm’s previously released song “Sanctuary,” and both are taken from the band’s highly anticipated debut album, No Place Is Home, which is set for release on May 25th. See the full No Place Is Home tracklist below. Pre-order No Place Is Home here.
