Today brings another leak from Alexander Spit next instrumental album, the follow up to Mansions, Mansions 2. This joint is called “PCH” and takes a slightly less experimental route, relying on some more traditional funk elements for this one. Have a listen and download it via Soundcloud. But don’t forget, the rest of the project will be available at the end of the month.
mree fans, get excited. The late teens singer/songwriter/folk-pop artist has officially announced her next album, Winterwell. Although, it’s a few months away from release as it will be available to the masses on August 6th, 2013. In fact, she’s even shared some album art to give us something to look forward to. Don’t believe me? Check out her own facebook post for the proof.
In my opinion, Rihanna’s “Stay” is one of her better songs to be released. It looks like I’m not alone with this notion because we have a total of 11 Youtube videos of artists who chose to cover the tune. That being said, the majority chose to go the same route as the original, sticking to a simple piano backdrop or even the same instrumental. But there are a couple unique gems in there that I think you’ll enjoy.
Come mid-June, JNatural will drop her next album, Bad Woman Rising. One of the singles off the album is “Ain’t Nothing Sacred”, for which JN has dropped a music video for. The visual makes extensive use of sensual experimentation and imagery over a soulful beat produced by Sly. The rapper always likes to keep things unconventional.
For his latest video, AM Kidd chose to go the simple route – utilizing portrait-like close ups exclusively over his song “Mrs. Suicide”. If you picked up his most recent EP, Six Degrees, then you should already be familiar with the track. What do you think? Is it a well executed minimalist concept or lazy video making?
At first glance, some may peg Andrew Huang as an artist who is more style than substance, but upon closer look I think most can agree the man is much more talented than many give him credit for. Nearly everything he does is an exercise in creativity and skill, and I’m even more convinced of this after seeing/hearing this video for “Crass Brass” (off of Lip Bomb). It’s a musical, visual, and lyrical decathlon of musical prowess. Well played, Andrew.
EDM staple Steve Aoki releases so much material, it’s hard to keep up with it all. So imagine our surprise that his latest commercial debut is the remix album for “Singularity”. We didn’t even know the original “Singularity” had dropped to begin with! Nevertheless, you can know hear 3 new takes on the song. If you’re interested in either the first run version or it’s new found subsequent versions, check below for your options.
Rapper Chosen One has dropped a new mixtape called On the Flip Side. There wasn’t really any advance notice of this project but it’s filled with 13 songs with Chosen rhyming over some famous beats old and new. In other words, this is a rap mixtape in the more traditional sense, filled with remixes and flips. Grab the release from Bandcamp.
This is a concept mixtape album, using some of my current and favorite songs from the old and new school… My own version, of what some of these songs would sound like… Enjoy, spread the LOVE, WORD, & MUSIC… P.E.A.C.E. …

The acoustic/folk/pop group has found a home on Nettwerk Music Group and is officially signed to the label (also home to Wanting). This is huge for the band and much deserved. I can’t wait to see what comes from this new partnership. NMG posted the exciting news on their Facebook page.
We are thrilled to announce the label signing of Run River North Run River North (formerly Monsters Calling Home)! The band will be hitting the studio this summer with renowned producer Phil Ek to record their debut album.
Ouch. Greenday’s lead vocalist, Billie Joe Armstrong, had some choice words for Psy and his music. Let’s just say he’s not a fan. Armstrong posted up a photo on Instagram of Psy with the caption “This Dude is the herpes of music. Once you think it’s gone, it comes back. #Herpes #flareup #pleasegoaway”. Everyone is entitled to their opinions, but that’s quite the harsh description for someone without a personal agenda or confrontation.
Unnecessary roughness. Apparently Psy didn’t mind too much though. You could say he took it like a…. “Gentleman“.
