  1. Final Round: It Ends With Us Both Right Here EP

    #Pop #Punk
    The music of Final Round from Chicago is a head-on homage to the early pop-punk style brought about by Blink 182 and MxPx. The band’s catchy hooks and playful melody drive their sound while guitarist and frontman Matt Hampson’s bright progressions and sharp leads make the EP qualify as head-banging material.

  2. Jyant: Love Overdose

    #HipHop
    Jyant‘s Love Overdose is exactly what its title claims it to be. The album’s 40 solid minutes of lovemaking music pack an intensity greater than anyone could have imagined before pressing play.

  3. Jeff Baker: Jeff Baker [EP]

    #Pop #Rock
    The three-track EP features pop-rock music in its most elementary form. Jeff relies on the genre’s basic blueprints for most part to create his tunes but takes care to add a few stylistic touches of his own here and there; fans of the simplistic manner of Coldplay or Imagine Dragons would find much appeal in the record.

  4. Fresh Body Shop: White Silk Toga

    1.600-1
    #Electronic #Pop #Rock
    Fresh Body Shop is the brainchild of France-based indie pop-rock musician Pedro Rousseau and with twenty studio albums under his belt and his music being featured on TV shows including Dexter, The Fosters and Gotham, its safe to say he is no amateur.

  5. Color Out: Color Out EP

    #Alternative #Rock
    Dave Hedrick aka Color Out shares his tales of loneliness, sorrow and frustration against the backdrop of early 2000s rock music. He blends melody with grungy guitar chords and powerful drumming in the style of bands like Foo Fighters and Queens of the Stone Age. However, soft and gentle instrumentation is given as much time in the limelight as the dense distortion; and sometimes they are woven together to contrast and complement each other like in Mercurial (Feat AJ Perdomo) and Anything But Everything.

HOW TO INSTALL FROSTWIRE PLUS?

We’re Officially Dropping Support for Windows XP

Today we’re officially dropping support for Windows XP.

The number of issues that arise as technology moves forward which are no longer addressed by Microsoft, who already dropped support for Windows XP 5 years ago, along with a very small XP user base (our estimates are less than 5%) are the reasons going forward with this decision.

FrostWire will still be working on Windows XP, but we’re focusing on the other versions of that OS.

For now we’ll be focused on supporting and fixing all issues arising in the following operating systems:

  • Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10.
  • Mac OSX 10.7 (Lion) or later (64-bit)
  • Linux Ubuntu (.deb based distributions) and Red Hat descendants.
  • Android +4.0.3.

FrostWire Perrault

According to The Telegraph

“In 1695, aged 67, he wrote Tales and Stories of the Past with Morals, a series of moral tales designed to prompt the reader to reflect on the dilemmas presented to the protagonist, which were well-known from folklore even then.
The volume contained the story now known as Mother Goose, alongside perrenially recognised titles such as Puss in Boots, Blue Beard and Cinderella, and less famous stories Ricky of the Tuft and Little Thumb
The book was enormously successful, and was eventually translated into English in 1729 by Robert Samber.
However, readers may be shocked to discover that Perrault’s original tales have lost much of their grisly detail today.
His version of Little Red Riding Hood, for example, made it more explicitly obvious that the ‘wolf’ is a man intent on preying on young girls who wander alone in woods”.

If you love fairy tales, you must read Charles Perrault stories.
