Here’s the most anticipated, and definitely in my top 3 tracks, off Yeezus, “Hold My Liquor,” featuring Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) and Chief Keef. Enjoy this leak while it lasts.
David Lynch borrowed my Swedish girlfriend, Lykke Li, to create the magical track “I’m Waiting Here,” which is featured on his forthcoming album, The Big Dream, due out 15 July (UK & Europe) and 16 July (USA & CAN)
Empire Of The Sun are back with yet another album ready for Summer. Their newest album, Ice On The Dune, maintains the band’s energetic, radio-friendly, electro-pop style but also shows off a level of maturity in their production that came from working with top artists such as Beyonce, Jay-Z, Usher, etc.
This album certainly isn’t mind blowing new music, but it definitely provides a perfect soundtrack to a good time.
Stream J. Cole’s newest album, Born Sinner, through its entirety.
Poliça’s newest single “Tiff” features guest vocals by Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon. Shulamith is due out this fall.
I’m excited to share this new artist with ya. Noble Oak is a Canadian dream-pop/chillwave producer who has been around for a while but completely out of my radar until now. For fans of Washed out, Teen Daze. Check out his newest hit “I’m Lost” above and then jump over to his Bandcamp for the rest of his collection. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
‘Smooth’ isn’t the right word, but it’s the first that comes to mind. The Stuyvesants’ “Refined” is an instrumental mix of 70′s soul hits with a modern twist. Enjoy.
New Washed Out hit – “It Feels Alright,” off Paracosm, due out August 12.
Speaking of Hot Chip…Joe Goddard Feat. Mara Carlyle – She Burns is taken from Joe’s forthcoming coming Taking Over EP, which is out later this year.
