As a music lover and part time journalist, it’s my responsibility to get on the world wide web to find new and interesting music to share with y’all. The weekend is usually when I get to catch up on my Soundcloud and Youtube digging, so come Monday, I’ve found at least a few new, raw tracks.
This new segment is really out of laziness. I figure, why don’t I compile all my weekend findings into one weekly post about such? It’s a hassle and a half having to write articles for each individual track (I got other shit to do, too). So, without further ado, here’s my “Weekend Finds”.
Eyedress – Old Fashion Ways
Eyedress is a Filipino singer/producer with a sound that screams Spring/Summer American Apparel. No, really, I got turned onto Idris (which is where he gets his name) earlier this year and have absolutely fallen in love. If you’re new to Eyedress, check out his other tracks “Nature Trips” and “Everything We Touch Turns Into Gold”.
Hudson Mohawke – Ryderz
Straight up, I was sort of nervous to hear what the next batch of HudMo music would sound like after I saw him at SXSW, but this is a pleasant surprise in the best of ways. Who knows if this is what Mohawk’s upcoming project, Lantern, will sound like but I would definitely like to hear Cam’ron over something like this.
Ratatat – Cream On Chrome
I don’t know what the hell had me occupied to where I didn’t even realize Ratatat had new music out, but shit, better late than never. “Cream On Chrome” is surely fit to please any Ratatat fan. Can’t wait for a full project.
Rose Window – Strip Mall Babylon
Rose Window is a fucking killer band from the Pacific Northwest signed to Sub Pop Records. That’s pretty much all I know about them, but they’ve really caught my interest after hearing several of their songs. Rose Window: if you’re reading this, let’s chat!!!
Young Thug – Halftime
So, I’ve actually heard this song before but it’s definitely my favorite song off Barter 6, which dropped this last Thursday (when I rediscovered it). I definitely wished for more from Thug, seeing he is a rapper with many different styles, but I can’t say I don’t like it. Also, Thugger said “cocaine white like Justin Bieber, bitch”. Amazing.
