LISTEN: Prawn – “Glass, Irony”

“Let’s keep swimming.”

Prawn have released another new track from their upcoming album, Kingfisher. The track, “Glass, Irony,” is an upbeat adventure of melody, pop, and crisp sound. Easily one of the band’s most energetic outings to date, “Glass, Irony” is a welcomed addition to any summer playlist, making the wait for Kingfisher all the more exciting, even though it’s still a month away.

Releasing on August 12 through Topshelf Records, Kingfisher was produced by Moving Mountains’ Greg Dunn. Featuring ten brand new tracks, if “Thalassa” and “Glass, Irony,” are of the caliber to expect, Kingfisher will …

LISTEN: The Felix Culpa – “Karma City”

It has been a long wait for new tunes from the much loved and much missed The Felix Culpa. But, today, fans are able to finally surround themselves in new sounds from the band in the form of new song “Karma City.”

“Karma City” is a catalyst of a track, bringing some of the dirtiest tones the band has used to date. Covered with a sludgy bass, heavy guitars, tight grooves, and the perfect balance between pop and drone vocals, “Karma City” is a welcomed return for the band.

The track comes from an upcoming split with Foreign Tongues via …

LISTEN: Frank Ocean – “Pyramids” (Blue Sky Black Death Remix)

Blue Sky Black Death bring on the intensity to create a more severe version of Frank Ocean’s “Pyramids.”

While the beginning of the track is almost straight Frank Ocean, the second half of the song is nothing like the musician, creating a fading, almost bleak, sound.

03-06-2014 – The New Parish – Oakland, CA

LISTEN: Ellie Goulding and Angel Haze Cover James Blake

Rap and pop meet once again for a mind-blowing cover of James Blake’s “Life Round Here.”

Goulding’s lush vocals give the track a stirring quality while Haze’s sick beat (much like the version that features Chance The Rapper) provides a definite contrast. While the track is anything but lavish, it holds a certain soothing simplicity paired with anticipation (for Haze’s contribution).

LISTEN: Chris Baio (Vampire Weekend) Remixes Broken Bells

Chris Baio has remixed yet another number under his DJ moniker Baio, and this time it’s a Broken Bells (the side project of Shins frontman James Mercer and Danger Mouse) track titled “Holding On For Life.”

Baio gives the previously sparkle-pop number a psychedelic twist, stepping away from his usual dance-y style.

In addition to this effort, Baio has released a 41-minute DJ set and announced a four-date long tour.

You can listen to “Holding On For Life (Baio Remix)” and view Baio’s tour dates below.…

Beck Covers John Lennon

In advance of his upcoming album Morning Phase (due out in February), Beck has graced us with a cover of John Lennon’s “Love.”

The cover of the ’70s era track will have a place on Starbucks’ Sweetheart 2014 compilation album, which will be on shelves February 4 (just in time for Valentine’s Day).

Beck’s wholesome croon brings a new, more chill vibe to the track. It’s not necessarily better or worse than Lennon’s version, but it definitely gives a new take.

Run the Jewels Stream “Pew Pew Pew” in Full and it Sounds Glorious

You heard a snippet of the song earlier in December thanks to a Boiler Room DJ set, but now it’s time to hear it in full. Run the Jewels (El-P + Killer Mike) have put up “Pew Pew Pew” online today for streaming, and it sounds even more glorious than the sample suggested.

Run the Jewels put out their debut self-titled mixtape for free this summer which ranked highly on nearly every 2013 “Best of” list. To celebrate the album’s success, they’re releasing a deluxe “European edition” of the debut which includes three bonus tracks, including “Pew Pew Pew” and …

LISTEN: Arctic Monkeys Release New B-Side

As a B-side to “One For The Road,” the England-based band has released the track “You’re So Dark.”

Mixing the band’s R&B influence with frontman Alex Turner’s sultry voice, the track is an excellent companion to the previously released AM.
