Bones Drops ‘Skinny’ Mixtape

“Back again with something new to hate. Back with another style to take.”

The enigmatic Los Angeles-based rapper known as Bones has followed up his excellent Garbage mixtape from earlier this year with yet another free effort in Skinny. Featuring 17 tracks of ’90s inspired, chilled-out, yet hard-as-fuck rap, Bones continues to deliver and assert his position on his internet-born throne.

For fans of Three 6 Mafia and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Skinny boasts big, trill beats and eerily beautiful, often ethereal samples to back Bones’ commanding flow. Most tracks clock in at a succinct minute an a half but the …

Foxygen Stream New Track “Cosmic Vibrations”

Foxygen have a huge, ambitious record coming out next month. It’s a double album, spanning twenty-four tracks.

We’ve already heard “How Can You Really,” which could be dubbed an ’80s pop song mixed with a touch of ’50s dance hall music.

Now, we’ve got “Cosmic Vibrations,” which takes on a whole different persona, but still reaching towards the late ’70s, early ’80s for influences. It carries an almost Pink Floyd vibe; not as anthemic, but still has the huge goal of carrying that classic rock sound, without feeling forced or played out.…

Sure to appeal to fans of the band’s earlier work and …

Trinidad Jame$ Raps About The Problems With Police On “Mr. Officer”

Trinidad Jame$ has released a new single every week since the news broke that he was no longer a part of the Def Jam family, and this week has proven no different.

Rapping about the recent events in Ferguson, as well as his own experiences, Jame$ uses “Mr. Officer” to talk about the interactions people have with members of law enforcement across the country. That may lead you to believe this is a song fueled by rage, but in truth it’s the furthest thing from a hard-hitting rant against police. The track is honestly pretty laid back, with a chorus …

WFFW Member Keano Spitta Releases “Like Me” Video

It’s been a minute since we heard from the WFFW crew, but yesterday afternoon member Keano Spitta delivered a new track and visual that is sure to ease the pain of the work week’s return.

Featuring hypnotic production that’s not too distant from the sounds found on fellow WFFW member Marco‘s recent singles, “Like Me” offers Keano Spitta one of the best opportunities to showcase his skills. It’s not that the beat makes him sound better, but rather the fact it’s entertaining without taking the focus away from Keano’s wordplay.

The video for “Like Me” finds Keano and …

The Getaway Plan Announce ‘Dark Horses,’ Launch PledgeMusic Campaign

Over the course of the last decade, Australia’s The Getaway Plan have evolved from teenage post-hardcore wunderkinds into one of the nation’s most successful and critically acclaimed rock bands. It has been a journey marked by incredible highs (such as their debut Other Voices, Other Rooms debuting at #14 on the Australian charts) crushing lows (the band went on an unplanned hiatus from 2009-2010, during which a former tour manager and close friend of the band was convicted with several sexual offences for which he was jailed for 16 years, providing an unwelcome run on front pages of the national …
