Groove Music

Hippo Campus - South

Hippo Campus is an up and coming band that is based out of the Twin Cities in Minnesota. The band formed about two years ago but weren't able to make a name for themselves as most were still underage and they couldn't get into venues to play. Earlier this year, they released their first album and were named best newcomers by Rolling Stone magazine.

Today, the group released their newest EP entitled South. The South features five tracks that will easily help brighten up your day. The entire album is worth a full listen but the tracks Violet and South. Give this new band a listen for yourself and let us know what you think.

  • As a child of the early 90s, Jurassic World was everything i hoped for and more. Funny where appropriate, sad, action-packed, and leaving me wanting more.   Ps. Product placement galore! Way too much of that. If you've worked at or been enough times to DisneyWorld (specifically MK), you'll see a lot of layout similarities.
  • I think I'll watch Doctor Who and listen to a bit of Phinehas or something, if I take a car ride at all.
  • Johnathan, do you talk to anyone dealing with the available TV & Movies? If so, can you pass this idea along? I have mentioned it numerous times and people seem to love the idea, but I dont think anyone at Microsoft is listening. They should have their typical movie & TV show rentals. But what ever you spy for a rental, if you decide you like it enough to want to buy it then, it should go towards purchasing it. Say renting Jurassic World cost $4. If you rent it then decide to buy it and the purchase cost is $20, you only have to pay $16 as your $4 rental fee would be deducted from the purchase fee. Their are two reasons I dont use the app or service, one is because the app does a horrible.job of handling my previously personally owned Moves and TV shows. Secondly because if the reason I mentioned before. Id be a lot more inclined to rent movies and shows from them if it reduced the purchase cost.
