STREAM: Here Is Your Temple – “Equivoke”


Following the success of their debut EP, So High, with spot plays at BBC6, positive reviews, and support slots for acts like Imagine Dragons, Here Is Your Temple returns with the single, “Equivoke.” The single, described by the band to be a tribute to everyday relationships, appears on the band’s forthcoming debut album. You can stream the track below:

“”Est qui (is that), Equivoke, my middle name” starts the song off with a question and a assertion. Reality is partial to the beholder. The text is a reconciliation and a celebration of everyday relations, nothing specific, none the less the one with yourself. In a way the text is a conversation and meant to play down the seriousness of it all assuming we really don’t know anything for sure at all so you might as well get to it. As the sun cooled off I’d jump on my bike and go swimming on my way to the club,” explains the group.

Vans Warped Tour and idobi Radio Partner For Warped idobi Radio



The 2014 Vans Warped Tour Presented by Journeys will get a signal boost from idobi Network when the two team-up for all new programming with Warped idobi Radio (WiR).

Entering its 20th year, Vans Warped Tour is America’s longest running concert festival tour, known for introducing the next big artists, from No Doubt to Katy Perry, Blink-182 to All Time Low, My Chemical Romance to Eminem; fans saw them first on Warped.

idobi Network is the ideal partner to Vans Warped Tour. For fifteen years and running, idobi has consistently premiered the next big artists over their online airwaves. From Good Charlotte to Fall Out Boy, Cassadee Pope to Imagine Dragons, idobi has earned a reputation for predicting what’s next in pop-punk and alternative.

If fans see their favorite artists first at Vans Warped Tour and hear them first on idobi Radio, it’s only fitting the two should come together for the ultimate summer mash-up. Warped idobi Radio will kickoff on June 9th 2014 with five original weekly shows, in a coveted two-hour daily afternoon block.

Up first is Music Monday. Various idobi personalities will journey back through the best of nineteen (19) years of Warped. Each Monday features a specific year and will flash fans back to the music and highlights of that summer.

Takeover Tuesdays will get hijacked by WiR’s favorite artists. We Are the In Crowd, The Summer Set, Echosmith, and more will takeover the station to share an inside view of what’s new, what’s next, and what’s Warped.

On Q&A Wednesday fans ask their burning questions via social media, and get the answers—no matter how weird or insightful—they haven’t heard on any other outlet.

Talk in My Shoes (TIMS) Thursday is all about going behind-the-scenes for a walk on the Warped side. The first TIMS guest is not to be missed; Kevin Lyman will get the show rolling on Thursday, June 12th.

Feel Good Fridays give back by encouraging listeners to get involved. Each Friday, WiR will shine the limelight on charities, including Hope for the Day, MusicCares, It Gets Better Project, and many more.

Bookending the weekdays are The Best of Warped Weekend. Saturdays and Sundays feature recaps of the previous week’s programming. WiR will make sure fans never miss a thing.

Music fans, Warped Tour faithful, and idobi lovers, tune-in starting June 9th, 2014 at http://ido.bi/player

Top 13 of 2013!


Image courtesy of Tumblr.


2013 is coming to a close, and it’s been an incredible year music-wise. There have been some fantastic releases that, while very difficult to pick, stand above the rest. As you prepare to say goodbye to this year, and start a new chapter in 2014, here are Planet Stereo’s Top 13 albums and singles that have come out.


Albums: (in no particular order)

1) The Maine – Forever Halloween: As someone who loves The Maine, I am slightly biased; I think all of their albums are brilliantly put together, but Forever Halloween really showcases the band taking a brand new, somewhat darker direction, and it is extremely well-done.

2) Fall Out Boy – Save Rock and Roll: The band’s first album following their seemingly-eternal hiatus. With guest appearances that leave most artists green with envy, catchy tracks that make you want to play the album over and over, accompanied by a progressive story in each music video, it seems that Fall Out Boy cannot be beat.

3) All Time Low – Don’t Panic: It’s Longer!: Obviously, this is just an extended version of the band’s 2012 album, Don’t Panic!, but I couldn’t resist. The new songs on this bonus edition make it feel like a brand new album, and it’s fun learning new lyrics. All Time Low have progressed as a group, and this album makes that evident.

4) The Wonder Years – The Greatest Generation: The surprisingly raw new album from an band I cannot say enough about. It’s extremely blunt, not shying away from depicting the true ugly in life.

5) Sara Bareilles – The Blessed Unrest: With her signature melodic flourish, Sara is a powerhouse both vocally and as a pianist. It’s a bit more adventurous than its predecessor, but allows listeners to see another side of the songwriter. No wonder it’s been nominated for Album of The Year!

6) Paramore – Paramore: A fresh start for the band with their self-titled release. There’s a distinct new attitude meddled in with the signature flare that has made Paramore so famous.

7) Frank Turner – Tape Deck Heart: Another amazing addition to a wonderful artist’s discography. If you want to hear an album with spirit, that truly captures the thinking in every human, this is it.

8) Lady Antebellum – Golden: I’ll let you in on a not-so-secret-secret: I love country music, and am a huge Lady A fan. Golden is one of my favorite releases of 2013, because every song has an undeniable soul to it. So well-made!

9) Sleeping With Sirens – Feel: Showing off their songwriting chops, Sleeping With Sirens wowed everyone with this incredible album, with some spectacular guest appearances.

10) Hands Like Houses – Unimagine: Not only do they make incredible shirts, but they also make pretty spectacular albums. Unimagine is a finely crafted collection of music, setting itself apart from the other releases of 2013.

11) Panic! At The Disco – Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die! This album may have launched Panic! At The Disco into the Top 40’s, but never fear! The signature style is still very much alive, with frontman Brendan Urie’s vocals shining through beautifully as always.

12) Cassadee Pope – Frame By Frame: Following her win on NBC’s The Voice, Cassadee Pope (previously of Hey Monday) released her debut solo album. The country-pop songstress left many in awe with Frame By Frame, a fantastic album filled with one catchy track after another.

13) Papermoons – No Love: I reviewed this album for Infectious Magazine and I have to say, it may be one of the best albums I have reviewed in a long time. It’s beautifully written, brilliantly executed, and a perfect addition to anyone’s iTunes.


Honorable Mentions: Michael Buble`’s To Be Loved, Blessthefall’s Hollow Bodies, The 1975’s The 1975, Mayday Parade’s Monsters In The Closet, Cartel’s Collider, Silverstein’s This Is How The Wind Shifts, David Bowie’s The Next Day, and James Blake’s Overgrown.


Singles(in no particular order)

1) All Time Low – “Love Like War (ft. Vic Fuentes of Pierce The Veil)”: 

2) Fall Out Boy – “Save Rock and Roll”: 

3) Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – “White Walls” :

4) The Maine – “Raining In Paris”:

5) Panic! At The Disco – “This Is Gospel”:

6) Sleeping With Sirens – “Congratulations”:

7) Justin Timberlake – “Mirrors”: 

8) Sara Bareilles – “Brave”: 

9) Cassadee Pope – “Wasting All These Tears”: 

10) Imagine Dragons – “Demons”: 

11) Hunter Hayes – “Everybody’s Got Somebody But Me”: 

12) Michael Buble` – “It’s a Beautiful Day”: 

13) Maroon 5 – “Love Somebody”: 


So many amazing singles and wonderful videos, it was a difficult list to compile this year!


Happy New Year everyone! 🙂
