“Beauty of style and harmony and grace and good rhythm depend on simplicity.” – Plato

It’s this philosophy of keeping things simple that makes the music produced by Cape Town band Stone Jets, fresh and unique, but also relatable. Their latest animated music video ‘Something Good’ reflects this perfectly as well with its quirky, simplistic animation.


Watch ‘Something Good’ music video here:


The animated video was done by talented film student, Leah Blem.


The band, with Manfred Klose on guitars and Given Nkanyane on vocals and bass and Johan Pretorius on drums, describe their music as “Afro pop rock”, but, as is the case with many musicians, their sound has evolved as they have.


On the inspiration for this music video, frontman Given explains, “The war between the mind and heart inspires will. The will to choose a side and find peace. To call it a battle would be insane, it is just something good”.


‘Something Good’ can currently be heard playing on various national and local stations including Radio Sonder Grense, Groot FM, Radio Laeveld, SFM Streek, Kosmos Stereo, Maties FM, Kovsie FM, and UCT radio among others.


Stone Jets are jet-setting on a trajectory to becoming one of South Africa’s most beloved acts. In the meantime fans can get ready to experience their Cape Town EP launch next month.


More details on this to be released soon.

Billie Joe Armstrong thought his life was completely normal during the height of his drug problems.


Billie Joe Armstrong thought his life was completely normal during the height of his drug problems.

The Green Day frontman sought help in 2012 when he entered rehab for substance abuse, scrapping all promotional plans for the band’s ambitious three album release.

While the pressure of writing and recording three albums back-to-back intensified his problems with drink and drugs, Billie admits he was “unravelling” anyway.

“The thing about someone who’s losing their mind is that they don’t know they’re losing their mind. I thought my life was completely normal,” he told Q magazine. “And it wasn’t. I was on drugs! And people aren’t acting rationally when they’re on drugs. So I had to take care of myself. I had to kick that, and I did. Then we took a long break which was totally necessary.”

The trilogy of albums were still released, with ¡Uno!, ¡Dos! and ¡Tré! hitting shelves within three months of each other. While they all made it into the top 20 of the Billboard 200 chart, each record fared progressively worse.

“Those records have absolutely no direction to them. It was about being prolific for the sake of it. So we were just going and going and going,” Billie admitted.

The band, now made up of Billie, Mike Dirnt and Tre Cool, will soon unleash their twelfth offering, Revolution Radio, which is released on 7 October (16). To accompany the album, Green Day is heading out on a world tour from September. The first leg will be in North America, with the band shunning stadium venues in favour of night club stages, but they’ll be back to the arenas when they reach Europe in January.

Volpi–Not like anybody else an Indie hit in the making



Introducing Volpi: when two lovers made some art and music together.

The creature was born on the sun-baked Italian streets of Bologna when an English boy and an Italian girl decided to make some sweet music together. Mixing genres like their nationalities, Volpi takes hazy guitars, soulful melodies, and disco basslines then glues it all together with a dark electro twist.

Already featured as the BBC introducing track of the day, Volpi are now ready to unleash a series of singles this summer, each with its own Volpi-produced video featuring graphics by the fair hand of Selene!

Tom from Volpi says ” My dear old Mum Wendy died early this year from lung cancer after a dignified and very brave fight. Whilst at home for 6 months caring for Mum with my Dad, I wrote an album of music during the evenings and nights: partly as a distraction, and partly to try and remind me of some of the beautiful, positive things life has to offer – in this case, Music. Together with my partner in kryme, Selene, we hope that through something so painful can come something positive and hopeful, especially in a world which is currently so fractured and inward-looking”.

For this reason, we will be releasing a number of tracks this summer as free downloads but with the possibility to make a charitable donation. We would be super grateful for your support !

The Indie poptastic new single ” Not like anybody else” has been described as ” Ben Folds with an Indie Beach Boys on backing” and will be available as a free download from 17/09/16 with an official worldwide release exactly one month later.



Sofia Richie has opened up about the "special relationship" she has with boyfriend Justin Bieber.


Sofia Richie has opened up about the “special relationship” she has with boyfriend Justin Bieber.

The 18-year-old daughter of crooner Lionel, who recently modelled for Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 4 show, went public with her romance with Sorry singer Justin last month (Aug16), and the pair have been packing on the PDA on several occasions since.

While Justin has been linked to his fair share of celebrities, including his ex Selena Gomez, Sofia is new to the world of dating a famous face. However, she has faith that her romance with Justin will go to the distance, because he’s so unique.

“We have a special relationship. Justin is very easy to talk to, and that’s hard to find with people in Los Angeles,” she smiled during a chat with Billboard.

Sofia’s romance with Justin hasn’t been all plain sailing though. After Justin posted several pictures of Sofia to his Instagram account, he was attacked with vile comments about his lady love from online trolls. The remarks led to Justin deleting his Instagram account in support of Sofia, but she insists she’s not worried about what people say about her.

“I remember the paparazzi and the s**t people would say to Nicole (Richie, her sister), and she wouldn’t respond,” Sofia continued. “I’m going to be real with you: It. Doesn’t. Bother. Me. As long as I’m happy.”

It makes sense that Sofia is dating a musician, as she has grown up around people in the industry. The daughter of Lionel and his dancer ex-wife Diane Alexander, Sofia is currently working on her own music, and her famous father is doing his best to influence her sound.

“One night he intercoms me, like, ‘Come have dinner in the studio,'” she recalled. “So I go down and it’s my dad and Pharrell Williams. I’m like, ‘I can’t just sit here and casually have a dinner with you two! I’m so sorry, I’ve got to go back upstairs.'”

While Sofia credits Lionel for being a huge inspiration in her life, she admits she’s looking forward to not living with him anymore and is currently eyeing up her own place.

“It’s time to go!” she laughed.
