Various Artists – Shady XV

Shady XV is a new compilation album featuring various Shady Records artists like Eminem, D12 and Yelawolf. The Shady single Guts Over Fear is worth a listen, but most fans of Eminem will find the whole album worth checking out. [Hip hop]

Hans Zimmer – Interstellar Soundtrack


My fault for not highlighting this last week when we released, but it's a slow week for music and you can't miss the Interstellar soundtrack from Hans Zimmer. Even if you haven't seen the movie, it's worth a listen if you want to go to space. It's a toss between Stay and S.T.A.Y. for my favorite track on here. This is great music for reading or doing anything that requires you to be epic. [Soundtracks]
