Not a week goes by where I don’t get sad knowing The Books are no longer around. But then, almost immediately following that thought, I remember we have Zammuto and thank the musical stars above. Started by Nick Zammuto of The Books shortly after the band called it quits in 2012, Zammuto stays in line with The Books’ found sound electronic style but replaces the cello with plenty of luxurious harmonies and shaky guitar lines. On September 2, Zammuto will be releasing his sophomore solo album, Anchor, via Temporary Residence.

Our first taste of the album comes in the form of the glitchy, winking single “Great Equator,” and today we get a taste of the more playful “Hegemony.” The latter toys with salsa and disco while roping in handfuls of drums and silky vocal samples. Zammuto once again manages to keep things warm but detached, a sensation few musicians know how to master. Give “Hegemony” a listen over at NPR, and check out “Great Equator” and the album’s full tracklist below:

Anchor Tracklist
01. Good Graces
02. Great Equator
03. Hegemony
04. Henry Lee (Trad.)
o5. Need Some Sun
06. Don’t Be a Tool
07. Electric Ant
08. IO
09. Stop Counting
10. Sinker
11. Your Time

Three time Grammy winning pop-rock band Maroon 5 have signed over to Interscope Records earlier this year and have been set to release their fifth studio album, V, in early September.

Maroon 5 are one of the few solid acts nowadays who very capably maintain and gain a larger fan base continuously despite the differences in sound and appeal of their last couple records. Notably a very pop-infused collection, the band shares that V will not be as poppy as Overexposed was, indicating a more personal touch from Adam Levine and the rest of the band, both lyrically and aesthetically. This record also welcomes the return of keyboardist Jesse Carmichael who was on a hiatus during the production cycle of M5’s last record. With the production involving people like Ryan Tedder, Gwen Stefani, Benny Blanco and other wonderful people in the music industry, V is highly anticipated and expected to garner much success.

You can find V’s newly unveiled track listing, B-sides, and album art below.

V track list:
1. “Maps”
2. “Animals”
3. “It Was Always You”
4. “Unkiss Me”
5. “Sugar”
6. “Leaving California”
7. “In Your Pocket”

Fortunately for the bass pounding producer, most listeners will surely be pleased with his latest effort. Featuring bare-bones percussion and bass kicks sounding more akin to Death Grips than Mohawke, floaty synths swirl about before sinking into a slow-burning beatdown courtesy of the aforementioned instrumentals alongside his staple of horns aplenty.

Give “Chimes” a listen after the jump and be sure to look out for Mohawke’s forthcoming EP of the same name when it drops September 30 via Warp Records. For those who can’t keep their money from burning a hole in their pockets, though, the record is currently available to pre-order here.

Anyway, today, El-P teased a wee portion (like 15 seconds) of a new track on his Instagram which you can listen to after the jump. He shared, “very soon we will drop something in some form from rtj2. in the meantime all i can do is offer little peeks like this.”

He creates sweeping trip-hop-infused electronic beats and funk-laced rhythms that speak from the soul, although maybe that’s because he’s related to John Coltrane. Earlier this year he shared previously unheard material and a music video for “Phantasm,” but now we finally get word of new material. On October 7, Flying Lotus will drop a new album titled You’re Dead! via Warp. Heads up: it’s going to be incredible.

California electronic musician and producer Flying Lotus is undeniably talented. He creates sweeping trip-hop-infused electronic beats and funk-laced rhythms that speak from the soul, although maybe that’s because he’s related to John Coltrane. Earlier this year he shared previously unheard material and a music video for “Phantasm,” but now we finally get word of new material. On October 7, Flying Lotus will drop a new album titled You’re Dead! via Warp. Heads up: it’s going to be incredible.

The follow-up album to 2012′s excellent Until the Quiet Comes has been teased for some time now. In November of last year, he tweeted that the album has more of a “jazz feel” and that it’s been undergoing production fine-tuning for months. All relatives aside, the jazz influences may come from his recent work with jazz legend Herbie Hancock.

See the full list of tour dates in support of You’re Dead! below. If you want to be his number one fan, pick up a copy of Bob Ross on DVD and give it to him at one of the stops. FlyLo’s is so nice that it’s almost guaranteed he would give you swag in return.

Swedish pop queen Robyn and Norwegian electronic duo Röyksopp teamed up earlier this year to release a collaborative mini-album titled Do It Again (out now on Dog Triumph, via Wall Of Sound/Cooking Vinyl). Back in April, they put out a lyric video for the album’s title track, but now the single has gotten a proper music video — and it was worth the wait.

Directed by Martin de Thurah, the “Do It Again” black and white video is a beautifully shot clip that takes place in Mexico and tells a huge story about oppression and rebuttal with the youth and a city’s people. While Robyn and Röyksopp are in the video, they make sure to stay as mere players in the larger tale, a humble decision for the sake of art.

Watch the video below and catch them on tour when they stop near you.

Irish rock legends U2 have been working on this new album for a while, and a couple lucky beach-goers have even overheard Bono spinning some of the tracks at his getaway home. Now, according to The Sun, “the new album will drop before the end of the year, most likely in November,” and the band will probably play in London as a part of this year’s iTunes Festival.

The record is U2′s first album since 2009′s No Line on the Horizon and their 13th in total. They’re “very confident” ahead of their long-awaited comeback, and rightfully so considering they have been recording with Danger Mouse. Another source said the album has been “a real struggle for them to make” and that it’s taken “a long time” but that they’re convinced “the wait has been worth it.”

Until then, we can always listen to their Golden Globe-winning hit “Ordinary Love” from the Nelson Mandela biopic Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom.

GQ magazine’s latest issue stars none other than Kanye West and his cover story is an extensive interview that delves into new music, his wedding, and what he thinks of Drake (“Let’s be honest—he got last summer.”). The most exciting bit of the interview is that Kanye does announce he has a new single on the way titled “All Day” that will drop in “the next couple of weeks.” According to Kanye, it’s a club song (like “Don’t Like” or “Niggas in Paris”). As for the album, it’s coming in “most likely September.”

Read more about the new track in the following excerpt:

What does that mean in terms of putting the new record together? Do you want the pendulum to swing back and do something more pop, like Twisted Fantasy or GraduationI think just my usual pattern is like that. It’s like a pendulum. The pendulum gains momentum by swinging in the other direction. Even lyrically, I think about certain lines that I say on my new single, which is called “All Day,” that usually Jay would say, but Jay’s not on there. So I say, All day, nigga, it’s Ye, nigga. Shopping for the winter, it’s just May, nigga. Ball so hard, man, this shit cray, nigga. You ain’t getting money unless you got eight figures. Right? Jay would have said that. And then eventually I would have came in with, like, whatever I come in with. But the balance of a meal is that when people walk in, they want water first. People definitely weren’t getting water first on Yeezus. I do fight with myself to say, “Keep fighting.” But also, you know, you can’t win every single fight. It’s a long war, and if you’re out there trying to, like, blow up every single building, you won’t win the war.

As for Jay Z and Beyonce missing his wedding? Well, Kanye had straightforward and heartwarming words to say: “All that, I wouldn’t even speak on. It doesn’t even matter to me whatsoever, who would show up. Because the most important person to show up there, to me, was Kim. And that’s all that matters to me. I had to fight for that for seven years.” D’aww.

Read the full story and see some of Kanye’s photos from the shoot here.
