Blog: Lost In The Sound
Avicii , one of the biggest progressive house artists right now, finally releases the long awaited Dancing In My Head , but it's not the (Avicii's Been Cursed Mix) . In this mix, Eric Turner adds monumental vocals that would sound spectacular in a club or a festival. It's clear that this song will be a new party anthem. You can watch the creative lyric video for the song below.
Cazzie Jetson of THEBLKHANDS has finally unveiled his new solo record, theMighty , placing the entire 18-song record up for free download on Bandcamp . On it, he drops slick flows over production work from ILLA of THEBLKHANDS, Wale -associated Best Kept Secret , Cazzie himself, and more. Narration throughout is provided by Dominic Serendip . You can get familiar with the Philly-based rapper's work below and stay tuned for [...]
Com Truise always sounds at peace when he's programs his synthesizer, so there's no surprise that his new song "Chemical Legs", the latest contribution to Adult Swim's Singles Program is a stunner. What may come as a surprise, however, is that the New Jersey-based musician features his own vocals for the first time as he half-talks, half-sings over the semi-robotic, Daft Punk like synth trance that we've grown to love and expect from Truise. You can stream the entire song below on Soundcloud or grab the MP3 [...]
Cudderisback. No, really. The Man on the Moon is back. After showing his rapping self for a capricious 30 seconds on Hit-Boy 's "Old School Caddy", the Kid Cudi of old made his full reappearance late last night on "Just What Iam", the first leak from his forthcoming Indicud album. Alongside him is another new (but not really) face: King Chip , the artist formerly known as Chip Tha Ripper and Cudi's longtime collaborator. Both artists kill it on some Cudder [...]

Professor O'blivion is an experimental project featuring John Deguide on bass guitar and Patrick Piper on drums, two hip boys rising from the depths of Barrington, Illinois. I'm big on supporting local and self produced music - "Think locally, fuck globally." When I found out long ago that they had almost finished their first demo, I hassled John about it for months. I was extremely pumped to finally hear some local music that didn't reiterate the stereotype of Barrington. Alas due to some problems they ran into, I was forced to be a patient crow and waited for [...]
Hit-Boy 's second song as a rapper is the long-awaited, often-teased "Old School Caddy" collaboration with G.O.O.D. Music fam Kid Cudi . This time, the producer-turned-rapper got behind the tables himself to churn out his own production, which fits perfectly with Kid Cudi's energetic Man On The Moon / A Kid Named Cudi era flow. Cudi is actually only on the song for about 36 seconds (one short verse after Hit-Boy spits his two), but his presence is huge, especially since Hit-Boy still sounds like he's trying to find his voice and [...]
Band: Blink-182 Location: London, England's Brixton Academy Date: July 25, 2012 The sun certainly made Blink feel welcome to London, as it looked more like Coronado Beach than Brixton last night for their last gig in the UK this tour. The fans were out in the skimpiest of summer clothing as this is the first real week of summer London has yet to see; vests, shorts and converse were the most popular combo, but [...]
Now I've never been one to jump on new albums the second they come out. That's mostly because I'm fairly lazy and don't keep track of when certain things are actually being released. Wild Nothing somewhat recently released their second album Nocturne under Captured Tracks. I wasn't too excited to jump right on this album because I can still groove to their first album Gemini released in 2010. So often, new albums ruin the band for me and I can just never dig the new music as much because the sound has always [...]
PORTALS , a music community that produces a "Monthly Mixtape Series" have teamed up with Chill Mega Chill Records to produce a summer mixtape created through submissions from their community in limited edition cassette form. It is available both in cassette and mp3 form from both PORTALS' and Chill Mega Chill's bandcamps ( here and here , respectively). PORTALS "is a refuge for emerging talent, for the young artist who may have no other place to be heard, for music that is better than its ability to seem cool." The mixtape is full of [...]
Over the past five decades, Sir Elton John has inspired and entertained millions with his songs and performances, selling over 250 million records worldwide. He's received countless Grammy Awards, knighthood from the Queen of England, been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and to this day, still owns the record for the best-selling single in Billboard history with "Candle In The Wind 19973. Today marks the start of a new chapter in the celebrated artist's career with his new memoir Love Is The Cure 's publishing through Little, Brown and Company. In [...]
On September 11th, the xx will release their second studio album Coexist through Young Turks featuring eleven brand new tracks. On lead single "Angels", which will be the opener to the new album, the Londoners channel their indie contemporaries Beach House for a beautiful and blissful three minutes. Producer Jamie xx has mentioned that the new album would be a bit more dance-oriented and with roots in club music, but "Angels" is missing out on that sound and instead (and perhaps more [...]
Dispatch frontman Chad Urmston took to the band's Facebook page to explain the story behind "Circles Around The Sun", the band's first single from their upcoming album of the same name. Circles Around The Sun , out August 21st, will be Dispatch's first official studio album in over twelve years. Below, you can listen to the song and read Chad's explanation. "'Circles Around The Sun' is the legend of our friend Larry Perry, who passed away this past year. In the early 1960s the space race had captured America. [...]
It's been a long wait for Passion Pit fans everywhere for the indie outfit's follow-up to 20092s Manners . Today, NPR's First Listen gives us a full stream of Gossamer , which you can listen to below. You can probably imagine how difficult it is to top their breakthrough debut record, but somehow, the group manages to do so by being a little more reflective, a little less circumspect in their songwriting, and a whole lot more daring. Gossamer will see its official release on July 24th and if [...]
Can't really complain when it comes to new music from Kendrick Lamar . To build up some more hype for his soon-to-be-released classic (fingers-crossed), good kid, m.A.A.d. city out on October 2nd, Kendrick let loose about his alcoholic past on some T-Minus crafted string and bass. As usual, the track is mixed by Ali from Top Dawg.
Damon Albarn-fronted Blur are back with two new songs for the 2012 Summer Olympics, despite the fact that Albarn has repeatedly hinted that he won't be making any new music with the band. The pair of songs, "Under The Westway" and "The Puritan", will be released as a single on August 6th. Today, we get the official video of "Under The Westway", which features footage of the band recording the song in the studio. Watch below.
The week is just about over and once again, the GOOD Music family celebrates Friday by gracing our ears with a new track. Hungry as always, Pusha T deals another hearty serving of dope (pun intended there) and hops on fellow GOOD Music artist John Legend 's single “Tonight (Best You Ever Had)”. The original was already a great listen and with an additional verse from Pusha, things only get better. Hard to argue with that. GOOD Music's collaboration album Cruel Summer will hit the streets August [...]
Frank Ocean drops a new song today, just days after posting an extremely poetic clarification about his sexuality. The new track "Sweet Life" was co-written by Pharrell and will appear on Frank's studio debut Channel Orange , out July 17th via Island/Def Jam. This is the first thing he has posted on his Tumblr since coming out two days ago. Listen and download the soulful new track from the talented Odd Future member below.
Mac Miller , Casey Veggies , and 17-year-old rap prodigy Joey Bada$$ linked up in New York City to shoot the music video for "America", a standout from Mac's latest mixtape Macadelic . Directed by Mike Waxx and Mike Carson of illRoots , the visuals feature the three rappers dropping their bars as the world around them becomes cartoon-like and animated via some crazy editing. Plenty of American flags and Illuminati references to go around here, so sit back and enjoy.
