Luckily for the unfortunately named supergroup Giraffe Tongue Orchestra (don't give up on them just yet!), the members featured in this outfit are too enticing to ignore. Musicians from Alice in Chains, Dethklok, Mastodon, The Dillinger Escape Plan and The Mars Volta make up this band, and thanks to some Instagram videos that premiered this week, you can listen to clips of new songs below.READ MORE

Yesterday would have been Elvis Presley's 80th birthday and we just can't get enough of the awesome coverage that folks on the internet have come up with to mark the occasion. Spotify's Insights blog once again uses data gathered by its Echo Nest, this time to create "The Elvis Influence," an application that traces any performer you enter all the way back to Elvis by way of influence.
