Steve Aoki

American DJ Steve Aoki dropped his second studio album this week. Neon Future I has been well received so far by Steve Aoki fans.

Tove Lo – Queen of the Clouds

Tove Lo

Sweedish artist Tove Lo released Queen of the Clouds, her debut studio album, this week. You might not recognize Tove Lo, but you'll know her voice when you listen to the track Habits (Stay High). You've probably heard the remix of that track from Hippie Sabotage at some point on SoundCloud. Check the rest of her work out. [Pop]

Xbox Video

Transformers: Age of Extinction

You can now rent the third Transformers movie if you're dying to know what happens to Optimus Prime and his crew of Autobots. Transformers: Age of Extinction is now available to rent on Xbox Video and it's terrible. But in good way where you might want to watch it just because you need your dose of explosions. [PG-13, 2 hr 45 min]

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (Season 2)

Season 2 of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is two episodes in and you can catch up with Xbox Video. A season pass is available that gets you all episodes currently available and any future episodes in this season. Reception of this second season has been high so far. You better catch up this weekend. [TV-PG]

Chef

A movie with a cast consisting of Jon Favreau, Sofia Vergara, Scarlett Johansson, Oliver Platt, Dustin Hoffman and Robert Downey Jr. has to be good right? Chef is that very film and has won the hearts of critics and audience members. A famous chef quits his job at a fancy restaurant and starts a food truck with friends and family. Let Chef be your comedy-drama film for the weekend.

  • Not available here :(
  • Tove Lo on WPC, didn't think I'd see it. Should defintely listen to her.
  • I checked her out because she was featured on XBox Music. :)
  • I don't have rights to stream her. Wtf. Thought I paid them every month to earn this right to stream.
  • Yeah, I love her songs. Queen of The Clouds is an amazing album
  • Habits remix is dope.
  • On a scale of one to dope, it's a speedball.
  • The thing I need XBM to do is pick up on one device where I left off on another....
    .............
    Hopefully with W10 that will happen.
  • Chef looks great! The rents been wanting to see it so... time to rent!
  • I am loving Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. so far, picked up the season pass the first day it was available.
  • Can anyone please explain how the Xbox season pass works. Do you pay for a season and you get to watch any shows on Xbox tv? Or do you have to pay a pass fee for individual shows? And can I still get a pass just using my phone if I don't own an Xbox? Thanks in advance.
  • Every TV show gets it own pass subscription.
    When you get a Season Pass for say NCIS Los Angeles Season 6 ... You get to have\own\download every episode in Season 6 at the same time CBS airs it instead of waiting & buying a complete season a while after the season is over.
  • I never tried it so I could be wrong.
  • IceDree is right. It's more like pre ordering a season and then you get the episodes as they come out and you keep them. They are DRMed but you can purchase and view from the Xbox Video app on Xbox or Windows/phone
  • People who moan about the need for a subscription miss the true differentiation between Xbox Music and other services. I added the featured album of this post to my collection Thursday. I could buy it, just download it or simply add it to my streaming collecting. All for less than $10 a month. It appears in my collection of all my devices and on the web. So while I may lament the shortcomings of the phone app, I will not knock the service itself. This is unlimited for me. I have thousands of tracks and albums I would not have spent anything to buy, but have the pleasure of exploring.
  • hey sam, love this section. Do you know a link that I could look for other users playlists or maybe pre built playlists on xbox music.
  • If you are into veteran rockers, this is groovin' week on Xbox music. For R&B/Funk fans you gotta check out Art Official Age by Prince, in particularly listen to the funk- electro "Cloud". Also, lady soul Aretha Franklin at seventy plus years, belts out a chilling rendition of Adele's, Rolling in the Deep. Then there's Bryan Adams', Tracks of my Years, a collection of covers from the likes of Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, and Smokey Robinson etc. This album is a good listen for a Saturday afternoon. Hopefully you'll all enjoy these as much as I.
  • I thought Prince would make the list. It's his first good album in a,good while.
  • I totally agree.
  • I am going to listen to Aretha Franklin, thanks I wouldn't come to know about it.
  • Thanks for the heads up.
  • The New Transformers is kind of boring, staring Mark Walberg. I mean its kind of dull, not like Revenge of the Fallen, which was rather exciting compared to this. That had some funny quips here and there, this nothing.
  • I actually found it quite interesting because it had a quite a few plot lines. 
  • Stay high !!
  • Just watched Chef. Amazing!
  • Chef is a great film!!!!
  • I would love to, only if the Xbox video and music functions are available in Singapore!
  • When will the legend of Korra be out in Canada?! :( on Xbox video :(
  • Not on Xbox Video, you have to see it at Nick.com . I saw it earlier today on there and it was fantastic.
  • I'm listening to Kendrick Lamar's new song "I" & FlyLo' new song with Kendrick Lamar (can't remember it name, but video have bunch of kids at a Funeral & end up driving the Hearse) Chef is an interesting movie, started watching it the other day, but didn't get to finish it.
  • I checked out "i", it's Super Fly! Thanks for sharing. This forum is an excellent vehicle for media discovery.
  • My pleasure :)
  • ATTENTION XBOX VIDEO USERS!!    Rent and or buy Horns with Daniel Radcliffe! Such an interesting movie where you are just can't figure out where it is going. Loved it, rented it myself, but be warned beforehand, it costs at the minimum $9.00 to see to rent (SD Quality). But it is worth it.  That is all. Also, South Parks new two episodes on Xbox Video are hilarious. 
  • Correction. Age of extinction is the fourth transformers movie (dark of the moon was the third).
  • I think Sam meant the 'turd' transformers movie, not the 'third'. ;-)
  • Childish Gambino's new 7 track EP Kauai is a good listen if youre a fan of hip hop
  • Not available here in Indonesia ._.
  • Tove lo, f-in good music.
  • Has anyone ever done a comparison between the different video apps on pricing. is xbox video more or less to rent than ? amazon, apple TV, rocu ? or other devices ? I noticed that the price has gone up some and changes from video to video, they are not the same anymore. Thanks  
  • Are you guys out of things to post about?
  • No Mr Tech Rat, we've done these articles for a few months now. Get with it.
  • So you've been out of things to post for sometime?
  • Love to, except the 11th update BROKE THE FREAKING APP!!! Force closes at exactly 10 seconds after opening. Always. Installed on my HTC One M8 for Windows.
  • Sweedish.
