Song of the Day: Life in Film “It’s What Happens Next That Matters Most”

02/27/2015

London’s Life in Film is here to get us ready for the weekend with new single “It’s What Happens Next That Matters Most.” The track starts out lo-fi and folksy then builds into a very danceable jam. Long strums and quick plucks of guitar give the song a very upbeat base, clashing with heartfelt and almost Read More

Fuckboys Beware, Run The Jewels Duo Killer Mike and El-P Recently Dropped Their Sophomore Album RTJ2 and it’s Exactly What Hip Hop Needed

11/14/2014

RTJ2 is grown up gangster rap. These men give a damn and make indifference look embarrassing. They muse over politics and power with verses that are refreshingly original. The album is blunt and goes straight for the throat. In “Close Your Eyes (and Count to Fuck),” they place themselves on the inmate side of a Read More

Song of the Day: Mysterious UK Duo, Wonder Wonder With “Shark”

10/07/2014

London-based Wonder Wonder is an enigma. In an age where big name acts are usually paired with a big story about their personal life, trials, or tribulations, this duo decided to try a different approach aimed at trying to let the music speak for itself. The band has no website. No photos or biographical information on their Read More

Photo by Dan Dennison/NME Following up his critically-acclaimed, perfectly-executed full-length Swim in 2010, Caribou has (finally) announced a new album that is set to be released October 8th. The album title is Our Love, with a track list that seems to imply the almost complete separation of themes and motifs of his previous record. From a personal Read More
