‘Downward Dog’ Finale: Saying Goodbye to a Show That Was More Human Than Anything Else on TV

‘Downward Dog’ Finale: Saying Goodbye to a Show That Was More Human Than Anything Else on TV
On Tuesday night, “Downward Dog” bid farewell to TV. For now.

The short-lived ABC sitcom only got eight episodes on network television — still surprisingly more than you would expect for a show co-anchored by a dog pontificating on the true nature of “loyalty” or “boundaries.” But what makes the show’s disappearance from the airwaves so disheartening is that it had much more to offer to an audience beyond the bevy of dog owners who watched the show with their four-legged friends at their side.

It’s impossible to boil down this show to one simple takeaway, but “Downward Dog” did truly capture the worth of seeing the world through different eyes. Martin the dog became the conduit through which the audience reevaluated many of Nan’s (Allison Tolman) interpersonal relationships as well. But despite having an animal in the title, the lasting ways this show will resonate for fans

Jauz Drops His Remix Of Passion Pit’s “Sleepyhead”

During his stint at Ultra Singapore a few weeks back, Jauz seized the opportunity to premiere his then unreleased remix of “Sleepyhead” by indietronica band Passion Pit. In the wake of deadmau5’s comments that he wouldn’t collaborate with the Shark themed producer, Jauz is rising above with the release of his Passion Pit remix in full.

As we previously heard from the Ultra live rip, Jauz delivers a solid rework of “Sleepyhead,” and fans will be excited to hear a high quality version of the remix. Kicking off with twinkling synth melodies and a plodding bassline, the “Feel The Volume” producer works in the altered vocal track from the original song, before moving into lighthearted future bass drops with rubbery plucks and 8 bit arpeggios.

Channeling his inner Marshmello, Jauz offers up a future bass re-imagining of Passion Pit’s 2009 song, retaining enough of the original’s identity while

Jauz Unveils New Passion Pit Remix At Ultra Singapore

We’ve already heard lots of good things come out of Ultra Singapore since last weekend, with Marshmello unveiling new material while deadmau5’s full set surfaced for fans who missed out on the action. During his performance at the massive festival, Jauz opted to test out a new future bass rework of indietronica band Passion Pit’s “Sleepyhead,” and thanks to a new live rip we have our first preview of the remix.

Jauz opens his remix with a twinkling synth melody layered over a plodding bassline while the vocal hooks from Passion Pit’s original are pitched up over top. Following a brief build-up, he takes the song into future bass territory with a Marshmello-esque drop, complete with stuttering chords, 8-bit synth leads and half time trap beats.

How the ‘Swiss Army Man’ Directors Went From Working With Lil Jon to Daniel Radcliffe

How the ‘Swiss Army Man’ Directors Went From Working With Lil Jon to Daniel Radcliffe
Every so often, a film is so innovative that it sends audiences running. Such was the case when “Swiss Army Man” premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, where the tale of a despondent island castaway (Paul Dano) and the talking, farting corpse he discovers and befriends (Daniel Radcliffe) inspired a seriously divisive responsive. No one is walking out now: “Swiss Army Man” led the specialty box office last weekend, (beating out the highly anticipated “Neon Demon”), and opens nationally July 1. It’s quickly becoming the breakout story of the summer. But while its directors are technically first-timers in the feature-length realm, they’re hardly newcomers.

The film’s success is largely due to its odd premise, dark humor, and — above all — a unique aesthetic that’s both tonally offbeat and profound. That aesthetic was honed by directors Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, who go simply by “Daniels,” during their rise

Swiss Army Man, which hits theaters this Friday, has been making waves with its already-infamous title as the odd, farting corpse drama that shook and divided Sundance this year. Following a hopeless man (Paul Dano) stranded on a deserted island who finds a companion in a talking corpse (Daniel Radcliffe). One can see our review here. The minds behind the madness are the directing duo DanielsDaniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, hence the name — and while this marks their feature debut, the pair have been working together for years.

Beginning in 2010, the two created a Vimeo and uploaded the official video for The Hundred in the Hands’ song “Pigeons.” From there, they spent the next five years crafting an assortment of commercials, music videos, skits, and short films — all seemingly working towards the distillation and realization of their collective cinematic voice with Swiss Army Man.

Full Ghostbusters Song List and New Slimer Poster Unveiled

Full Ghostbusters Song List and New Slimer Poster Unveiled
We'd like to say it's a great time to be a Ghostbusters fan, but a lot of you would disagree. Even though those who loved the 1984 original have done nothing but dump hate on this new iteration of the classic franchise, that hasn't stopped Sony from moving forward with their marketing and merchandise campaign. Though believe it or not, some consumers have complained about a lack of toys in stores, with the studio not fulfilling the demand. That won't happen with the soundtrack, as it be readily available when it drops next month. Today, we finally have a clear picture of what exactly will be included.

Earlier today, we saw all four of the new Ghostbusters grace the cover of EW's latest issue. Now, we also get a new international poster that once again includes Chris Hemsworth as Kevin. This time, though, we also get to see Slimer making his triumphant big screen return.

You Can Stream Skrillex’s Full Edc Brasil Set Right Here

It’s reassuring that even after spending a large chunk of 2015 making radio-ready pop music with the likes of Justin Bieber, Skrillex can still throw down a set of bone-rattling bass music when the situation calls for it.

Now that Edc Brasil has wrapped up, a direct recording of his performance at the festival has begun making its rounds on social media, and it’s definitely worth watching. Mixing grating bass wobbles with saccharine melodies and borderline chipmunk-esque vocals in the style that Skrillex is known for, the performance succeeded in energizing the thousands-deep crowd in attendance on the evening he played.

Replete with remixes and edits of tracks from the likes of of Avicii, Fetty Wap and A$AP Ferg as well as a whole host of originals, his set made for a spirited return to the style that made him famous back in 2010-2011.

Considering that artists like Dash Berlin,

Madeon – Adventure Review

Adventure, the debut album for French Wunderkind Madeon, takes listeners on a colourful and whimsical musical journey. It represents three years of hard work on the producer’s part, and it certainly shows. Every single note and vocal is crafted to orchestrate a soundtrack to an imaginary world. One which is filled with good vibes, catchy pop sounds, and a lasting state of euphoria.

Kicking off the 12-track LP is a prelude titled “Isometric.” Winding scales prepare the listener for the adventure ahead, progressing towards a sneak peak of the signature Madeon break. While brief in length, it creates anticipation and a yearning for what’s to come. Following that is “You’re On,” which was also the second release from the album. It highlights the soothing R&B vocals of Kyan, which ride a 100 bpm wave of pop melodies and synths.

“Ok” is up next and it’s a
