This dude Brandon Wardell cracks me up. Check out my Heavy Rotation interview with him HERE.
Take a trip back 20 summers to NYC as ItsOverture mixes up classic hip-hop songs from 1996, complete with vintage Hot 97 drops and clips. Very nicely done—that Jeru ad in the beginning just blew my mind! Listen above.
Heard this song on Hot 97 and then Power 105 at the same time the other day coming home from work. Nice to hear new New York rap shit on the radio, song is tough. Props to Young M.A she’s nice with it.
This track is fresh.
Earl Sweatshirt takes the smooth, somber route over a piano chord-driven Knxwledge production. Dope.
Here’s another new Frightnrs tune off their upcoming album Nothing More To Say (September 2nd release date). This one’s a cover of “Gotta Find A Way” by Bob & Gene, a soul gem from the Daptone Records catalog. Enjoy…
In a recent interview with Portland radio station KBOO, James Mercer revealed that the new Shins album is done and due out in January. Being that The Shins are my favorite band of all-time, this is extremely exciting news! During the interview, Mercer talks about writing and recording the new album, and also speaks about his musical beginnings. Listen HERE.
By the way, what’s your favorite Shins album?
