A handful of tracks that got our interwebs buzzing

Check out the tracks below. The soundcloud playlist and youtube videos are a sort of conga line of what people on the internets are talking about right now including new releases, re-issues and some just reified.

Peter Mayhew, the man who played everyone’s favorite Wookie, Chewbacca, has opened his treasure chest to expose some very candid, intimate behind-the-scenes photographs of his time shooting the legendary Star Wars franchise. For fans of the epic sci-fi space opera (who isn’t), the photos illuminate a side of the production that few have ever seen. Images shot […]

A rags to riches thug-life story shot not through the lens of organized crime but rather Wall Street (wait, is that the same thing actually?), The Wolf Of Wall Street tells […]
