If you haven't heard of Zak Downtown yet, don't worry - you will. The New York native has been gaining major buzz online with his infectious hip-hop/rap and pop hooks. Watch out Macklemore!
In his latest track, "New York," Downtown teamed up with DJ Fresh Direct to pay homage to the city that built him, along with a nostalgic sampling of 50 Cent's "P.I.M.P." to form an energetic and fresh new anthem for the city that never sleeps.

Tiny Stills - For fans of: Rilo Kiley, Tegan & Sara, Say Anything
Tiny Stills' frontwoman Kailynn West has been a DIY musician since the age of 13. After building up a strong following as a solo artist, especially on YouTube, West is now branching out with a little help from her friends.
Tiny Stills are "happy angry indie rock" that blend their influences from Say Anything to Rilo Kiley into a lovely array of infectious sounds and harmonies. Their debut album, Fear Is Like Flying, is set to drop sometime this year.
Check out their debut video for "Starting Over" below:

LA's Robert Fleming is the mastermind behind the awesomeness that is Sneakout. After making music under the Victory moniker, Fleming found himself smack dab in the middle of commercial success, being featured in ads for Cadillac, Burberry, Apple and even an episode of HBO's Girls. Now, continuing on the success of Victory (and it was sweet), Sneakout is a new play on something that broke boundaries with fuzzy pop goodness.

The New Division have released a remix album to their sophomore effort, Together We Shine, this week. If you thought the original was flawless, wait until you hear it's companion! The band is even set to release an EP of brand new material titled, Gemini, sometime at the end of the year. I'm convinced singer/producer John Kunkel isn't human.
Until then, enjoy the glorious John Glenn Progressive "England" remix featuring Keep Shelly in Athens below:

Just this past weekend, I literally thought, "I wish HAIM would make another video." Well, oddly enough my wish came true!
The California sister trio released their 90's-talk-show parody-esque music video for Days Are Gone banger, "My Song 5," starring an all-star cast. With Saturday Night Live's Vanessa Bayer as a wacky talk show host Dallas Murphy, Kesha and a precious kitty, along with a Johnny Depp look-alike audience member that just so happens to be Ezra Koenig, Grimes, Big Sean, and of course, guest rapper A$AP Ferg.

Get ready Swifties! Taylor Swift is back with a new album and single for your listening pleasure! Every two years, we are graced with a new Taylor Swift album, and this one, which is Swift's fifth studio release, is sure to be jam-packed with more sass and infectious fun than her last - 2012's Red.
1989, which is Miss. Swift's birth year, is set to be released on October 27. Today, during her Yahoo! Worldwide Live Stream, Taylor revealed the first single, radio's next hit, "Shake It Off," along with it's get-up-and-dance music video, which features Taylor trying on a bunch of different personas and addressing some not-too-nice words that have been thrown her way. Of course, her response is to just 'shake it off' and twerk. Kind of.
The response to "Shake It Off" has been groundbreaking. Twitter is blowing up with feedback on the song, both positive and negative. All I can say is that this is only the album's first single. I'm pretty confident that 1989 offers more of the hard-hitting material that we all love from Taylor. Hang on, kiddos! The best is yet to come! After all, Ed Sheeran said so.
Watch "Shake It Off" below:
