The Swedish alternative pop quartet, THE ROYAL CONCEPT, are returning to North America for a 2015 Fall Tour! On the road in support of their latest release SMILE EP, the band will be stopping in Jacksonville, FL on November 1st playing at Jack Rabbits Live.

The guys recently premiered the lyric video for their latest single “Fashion.” Watch it HERE!

To record Smile, THE ROYAL CONCEPT entered a Los Angeles studio with producer Tony Hoffer [M83, Phoenix, Depeche Mode, The Kooks] behind the board. The EP’s five tracks bristle with an unshakable energy and swaggering charm. First single “Fashion” straddles the lines between funk, indie, and pop, converging on an anthemic refrain.

THE ROYAL CONCEPT ignited an international buzz with their 2013 smash “D-D-Dance.” It soared to #2 on Hype Machine, as follow-up songs “Gimme Twice” and “World on Fire” landed at #3 on #1. Their debut The Royal EP also saw them receive coverage from Rolling Stone, Billboard, FILTER Magazine, Alternative Addiction!, and more. Meanwhile, Examiner predicted, “there are big things ahead of this group” and Glamour proclaimed “Gimme Twice” “one of this summer’s big hit songs.” “On Our Way” became their biggest hit, landing over 25 syncs including Glee, FIFA 14, and more.

Fantastic Four.. How bad is it?

So last night I decided to go to see Fantastic Four I had heard earlier in the day that it had a pretty bad rating (it’s currently 9% Critic and 35% fan per Rotten Tomatoes).

It has suffered from the same thing that the Spiderman films have, which is a telling of nearly the exact same story. The difference in this case is that most of the movie is boring and when the action finally comes into play it’s quickly over and it was way too easy for the heroes.

Driving home I had to think about what about the movie was bad, and I would say for the most part it’s a collection of good scenes. So how does a sequence of good scenes create a bad film? Well I think it’s lack of creative directing and too much focus on the wrong thing. The characters did not develop through the film, we got to see a couple of them as kids but they were no different, they could have easily put that in as dialog or maybe a flashback.

I also mentioned that the heroes had it too easy, at no point do you worry about what’s going to happen to any of them. The film was almost completely void of suspense, the movie was very much an intro to the characters but it doesn’t actually make you care about any of them.

Most people are likely unaware that this is a film by Fox and not Marvel, it was likely made so Fox will have the rights to the characters for several more years. It was pretty obvious that unlike the Marvel films (they seem to care about the characters and the fans) it was made to make Fox some coin and not much else.

Do not watch this film, it’s a huge waste of your money and time.


Gainesville, Florida’s cosmic funk-pop quartet Flat Land is embarking on their Foothills Tour, and will be playing Friday, Aug. 7, at Ashley St. Station in Valdosta, GA starting at 9PM ($5).

The quartet, fronted by Fae Nageon de Lestang on violin and vocals (a descendant of pirates with buried treasure somewhere off the east coast of Africa), has received critical praise for their sound from enough hippies at DIY venues to launch them into the national spotlight. One of MusicFestNews’ “Artist on the Rise”, the group’s dynamic sound lies in the realm of artists such as Beck, the Alabama Shakes, and White Denim. The band’s high energy live performances have propelled them to share the stage with the likes of Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Benjamin Booker, Hundred Waters, Zach Deputy, The Main Squeeze, The Heavy Pets, and Roosevelt Collier, among many others.
