Xbox Music

Knife Party – Abandon Ship

Knife Party

The Australian electronic music duo Knife Party have released their first studio album Abandon Ship. Track number two is a good single to get a taste for their music and see whether or not you like the album. Sam likes. [Electronic/Dance]

Ariel Pink – pom pom

Ariel Pink

And now for a complete 180 from Knife Party. Pom pom is the debut solo album from Ariel Pink. I didn't think I'd like the album after listening to the first track, but give you should give it a chance. Check out the single Put Your Number in my Phone to see what you think. [Indie rock]

Fugazi – First Demo

Fugazi

First Demo is a demo album from Fugazi that was released this past week. Believe it or not, this is a bit of blast from the past since it was technically recorded in 1988. Think of this as a little history lesson for the weekend. [Post-hardcore]

Xbox Video

22 Jump Street

Probably one of the best comedies in 2014 (in my book at least). 22 Jump Street is the sequel to the 2012 movie staring Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum. [PG, 1 hr 52 min]

  • Watch on Xbox Video{.nofollow} [Rent for $5.99]

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

Did you skip on the Sin City sequel in theaters because of abysmal reviews? Good, I did the same thing and instead waited to rent the film. It's out this week, so if you want to visit the Sin City universe this weekend you can. Though you might be better off with the original. [R, 1 hr 42 min]

  • Watch on Xbox Video{.nofollow} [Rent for $5.99]

Jersey Boys

Love video games? Then you're going to want to catch the Atari: Game Over documentary on Xbox Video. It's an exclusive documentary for Xbox video that chronicles the fall of the Atari Corporation. [PG-13, 1 hr 6 min]

  • ABANDON SHIP!!! Plus Diplo's cameo in 22 Jump Street PS. Did y'all hear about Olle from Dada Life? :(
  • Knife Party >>>>>>
  • I want pizza
  • In Windows Central, 60%of news is about Xbox :D
  • Xbox runs a version of windows, so...
  • And? Any problem?
  • Don't take it serious guys, he just say it. -.-
  • And one more thing is U.S Carrier news..... Harish and Abhishek baxi . Do somethings about BSNL , AIRTEL , TATA DOCOMO , IDEA , AIRCEL , RELIANCE and all remaining Indian Networks
  • Ikr !! VODAFONE TOO
  • What they've got to do with Microsoft?
  • The article is about Xbox Music, and Xbox Video, which runs on computers, tablets, phones, and Xbox. It's not something just for Xbox.
  • Knife Party (Y)
  • I saw Knife Party perform at EDC Orlando they killed it!!!
  • Saw them at Ultra last year
  • 22 jump street downloading(torrent) lol.
  • I've been waiting for XBOX MUSIC UPDATE and the VLC and have been refreshing the feeds every now and then... Freakkin update it.. *;*
  • Didn't Major Nelson also say that Gold members would get Dragon Ball Z: Battle of the Gods as a free rental? Is that still happening?
  • Sin City was awesome. The critics didn't like it because it wasn't fresh like the first one. Which means they only liked the first for being different.
  • I love Xbox music. Yeap. Its awesome
  • Just watched jump street the old fashioned way (blu ray)
  • I bought it from work for 15 bucks, I'm still a disc guy (especially seeing as my xbox one is already full and my 360 is getting close).
  • Watched Home Alone on VHS the other day, it was nice. Felt retro, glad the machine still works lol
  • Just had a listen to knife party then, didn't like it, I much prefer the likes of Presets, Pendulum and Pludo (I'm as surprised as you are that they all start with P) for electronic, probably because its more instrument based which I prefer.
  • How i can find free movies on xbox video ?
  • Fugazi ftw.
  • Fugazi is excellent! Calling them Post-hardcore or punk really sells them short, but those are probably the best genres to put them in.
  • I wish we had the stable apps to watch and listen to these..
  • Anyone know if the wii u ngc controller adapter that Nintendo released on Friday works on w7 8 9 yet?
  • I was hoping you were taking about Knife Prty by Deftones.
  • For real. I'm amped for their next album. Hope they get more energy packed in on the next one. Love those guys.
  • This. Deftones for life.
  • Agree!
  • In music and video apps i don't see xbox music or videos, i only have options for locally stored music and videos, help. L925
  • Even me. Depends on region I guess..
  • Depends on which country you're in.
  • There should be more free rentals for Xbox gold subscribers.
  • Or even weekly discounts for Gold buys / rentals. I WANT to support Xbox first but Redbox, Amazon, and others are so much cheaper. It's like MS doesn't even yet to compete for my money.
  • True
  • This. I go get a red box bluray for 1/3 price. Why they insist every movie is. 5.99 and not amazons 4.99 makes it even worse
  • They do offer rebates thru xblrewards its not much
  • 22 jump street!! Brilliant movie in my opinion, just alot of crude language.
  • Really? That's shocking.
  • Off topic : Can anyone suggest me a game to play over LAN ?
  • Borderlands the pre sequel
  • Apparently Knife Party is not available for streaming but must be bought, which is disappointing.
  • the xbox music on windows 8.1 is so good
  • Knife Party is always Deftones in my ears.
  • Lol
  • Nod gud when playng music after that songs corrupted or not able to play this file songs
  • Awesome!!!! Knife party and pizza tonight
  • Sin city is worth a watch even if u haven't seen the first movie....hell Jessica Alba dance seen with a twerk is worth the rental price alone lol
  • Gary Whitta!
