tUnE-yArDs

tUnE-yArDs new album Nikki Nack comes out May 6 via 4AD.

She previously shared the album’s first single “Water Fountain”, a now she’s hit us back with a track called “Wait For A Minute.”

There’s a lot going on in the track, a colorful journey through the sophisticated mind of Merrill Garbus. Lots of layers and ideas floating around, creatively centered by Malay who co-produced the track (who produced Frank Ocean’s Channel Orange).

Dig your head around “Wait For A Minute” below.

[new]: Atmosphere – Kanye West

By Will Oliver, April 10th 2014 — with 1 comment

Atmosphere - Kanye West

Atmosphere’s new album Southsiders comes out May 6 via Rhymesayers. Lead single “Bitter” set the table, and now he’s raised it a bit with follow-up track “Kanye West.” Yes, that’s the title. I don’t know if Kanye is ok with it, but it looks like they got away with it.

Slug handles his rhymes over some fine production, definitely worthy of its Kanye West songs title.

Find “Kanye West” below.

[new]: The Roots – When The People Cheer

The Roots - When The People Cheer

Although they’re Jimmy Fallon’s live band on The Tonight Show 5 days a week, The Roots found time to record a new album . It’s called …And Then You Shoot Your Cousin and it comes out May 13 via Def Jam Recordings.

“When The People Cheer” is the album’s first single and it’s available to stream now. On it, Black Thought provides some thoughtful rhymes over some gentle melodies held together by the persistent percussion of the always strong ?uestlove.

It’s another classic from The Roots, who have no problem finding a way to consistently blow our minds.

Find it posted below.

Walter Martin

The Walkmen’s Walter Martin will release his debut solo album We’re All Young Together on May 13 via Family Jukebox. From what I heard from his intimate live show a few weeks ago, it’s a lovely album.

One of the songs he didn’t play at that show is called “We Like the Zoo (‘Cause We’re Animals Too)” and it features The National’s Matt Berninger on vocals. It’s a fun song, a novelty song, if you will. As Martin himself goes on to describe..

‘We Like the Zoo (‘Cause We’re Animals Too)’ is my tribute to the lost art of the novelty song,” Walter says. “Songs like ‘Poison Ivy” and ‘Yakety Yak’–all those Leiber and Stoller masterpieces–are a big part of my life. I didn’t want to put my name on an album that didn’t have room for that kind of song.

It’s cool to hear Martin team-up with Berninger on the track, whose deep vocals add an interesting aspect on this sort of song. It’s a delight all the way around.

Enjoy it below.

Premiere: The Honey Trees – By The River

By Will Oliver, April 8th 2014

The Honey Trees

The Honey Trees are California duo Becky Filip and Jacob Wick. Today marks the release of their debut album Bright Fire. It’s a big day for them, as the album has been in the works for four years. With just one listen to their music you can immediately tell that they take careful consideration into the making of their music. Especially in this day in age, where everyone is in an arms race to maintain buzz. It’s amazing that a band is still willing to take that much time to release their album

“By The River” is a track off the album and I have the honor or premiering it right here with you today.

Part of it is grand, the other part intimate. The big sweeping strings take you far upwards towards the heavens, while the heart-wrenching vocals of Becky Filip keep you grounded at a more natural beauty. It’s the type of songs that transports you to a special place, where this kind of magic not only exists, but thrives.

Enjoy “By The River” below, and head here to purchase the album if you like what you hear.

Lower – Lost Weight, Perfect Skin

By Will Oliver, April 3rd 2014

Lower

Copenhagen’s Lower have signed with Matador Records, who will release the band’s debut album, Seek Warmer Climes on June 17.

Below you can stream “Lost Weight, Perfect Skin”, the album’s first single. It’s a punk-minded track with guitars that ring home with a sense of urgent despair that can’t be shaken. There’s something about the way that singer Adrian Toubro’s delivers his vocals that is highly effective, working his magic on you effectively well.

If you were previously unfamiliar with Lower, think of this as your proper introduction.

(Cut Copy @ Terminal 5)

On Record Store Day (April 19), Cut Copy will release a brand new song called “In These Arms Of Love.” You don’t have to wait that long to hear the track though, as an early stream has graced our presence.

In typical Cut Copy fashion they aim high for the stars on the track. It’s both heavy on the electronic effects as well as the ambition. These guys can do now wrong.

Hope you’re able to find yourself a copy come RSD. Stream it below.

Alexis Taylor

Hot Chip frontman/vocalist Alexis Taylor has announced his first solo album in nearly six years (since 2008′s Rubbed Out). It’s titled Await Barbarians and will be released via Domino Records on June 10.

“Elvis Has Left The Building” is the first track that Taylor has previewed off the album, and it’s a lovely affair. An intimate ballad of sorts, Taylor lets hit voice do the work over some light piano chords with some minor electronic effects and hi-hat taps.

Give it a try below.
