Yesterday, LA Singer/Songwriter Tinashe delivered a new track featuring Blood Orange’s Dev Hynes. Airy, blissful, and wavy, “Bet” is the first single off Tinashe’s debut album “Aquarius” due out October 7th on RCA Records.
Though they’ve been touring relentlessly (including an awesome set at this year’s Pitchfork Music Festival), Cloud Nothings haven’t given us anything new in a while. Today, however, the Cleveland-based trio have released the visual for “Now Hear In”, a cut off of their March release Here and Nowhere Else. Oh yeah, and the video was directed by Toro Y Moi. Enjoy.
Fellow Save Money representative, Joey Purp, lends a verse to the already solid Sterling Hayes track, Father’s Son. The original track was intended for Sterling’s BIGshorty EP, but with the addition of this Joey Purp verse we’ll have to see if this is just a loosey remix, or if it will end up anywhere.
The New York spitter by way of Seattle, Aaron Cohen, just released his follow-up EP to Potential Fans. This one is called You Wouldn’t Know and it’s pretty solid. I hear a lot of progression between his last project and this one.
Somehow, through all of the acclaim and accolades, Radiohead’s front-man Thom Yorke consistently surprises listeners with new project in different mediums, each one perhaps more bizarre than the last. First, he went solo, giving us The Eraser, then Radiohead dropped In Rainbows for download, allowing users to pay what they wanted for the project, and finally today, Yorke brings us yet another solo project entitled Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes, sponsored by BitTorrent – yes, you read that correctly: BitTorrent. You can stream the album below, and download it for the mere price of $6.
It’s been a little while since we’ve heard anything from Baths, whose 2013 effort Obsidian was one of the most surprising projects of the year. Today, however, Will Wiesenfeld (Baths’ government name) brings us a new track in association with LA-based label Friends With Friends and shoe company Vans. The project, which is due out on October 8th, also features the likes of Hodgy Beats and Salva. Until then, however, simply enjoy this new Baths track and wait for them to release a new album, just as I will.
Here are the GoldRush directed visuals for Rome Fortune’s Four Tet produced track One Time For. Looks like the homie Rome had a pretty fun-filled summer. This video definitely makes me wanna go out and party and travel and adventure. Small VVorld EP is coming soon, so be on the look out for that…
JMSN finesses over some Esta. production while everyone involved with Soulection continues to prove they are incapable of making any music that is less than amazing. Pretty much everything that comes out of that camp is flawless.
Khori’s been steadily putting out hot music. He’s contributed to a few of Hurt Everybody’s biggest hits – In Seoul, Illustrious and Wicker Park Girls. If you aren’t hip to him yet, you will be soon. He’s getting everything lined up to release his project titled Paradox later this year. Khori is a DIY artist – engineers and mixes his own music at The Jungle AE where he works as a recording engineer. He spends his time between Chicago and St. Louis. On this track Black Guise he teams up with ShowYouSuck, who just had big success at Riot Fest and is currently on his first tour of Europe called #ChicagoTakeover. The track is produced by Hurt Everybody’s Mulatto Beats. Khori describes Black Guise best himself:
So basically this song starts with Show You Suck painting the picture of what
its like on his side of town, describing his wardrobe, things he’s into, his
In between the verses I laid a screwed up refrain that says,
“Sittin’ pretty on the low
Hit the city and I roll
P- Pocket full of pros
All I ever wanted was that roll”
Then on my verse I sarcastically paint a picture about stressfully riding
through my city on a beautiful day with a chick telling me not to stress,
hard work pays off.
Going on to bring up past struggles and say even when I am succeeding I’ll still
be perceived as “a n*gga with money” .
I titled it Black Guise to kinda go along with the concept that no, we just want
to succeed and enjoy our life regardless to what the perception may be.
