It's been a minute now. "Adolescents" is the first single from the upcoming Incubus album, If Not Now, When? Adolescents by incubus
This song was originally intended for Lupe but Jim Jonsin really wanted it for B.o.B and the rest is history. I've been waiting for this to emerge for a while and now we finally have it. It's definitely a good song, but it would have never been as successful as B.o.B's with this laid back feel. Download: Lupe Fiasco - Airplanes ft. Hayley Williams [Audio clip: view full post to listen]
What's good hip-hop heads? I got a mega post for y'all tonight. First off we got the official first single off the Beastie Boys' new album Hot Sauce Committee Part Two . So happy to see Mr. Adam Yauch back at 'em after a battle with cancer. Still shocks me that these dudes are consistently making music this good this far in their career. Download: Beastie Boys - Make Some Noise [Audio clip: view full post to listen] Hit the jump for more from Wale [...]
Zeds Dead just released a couple songs on their Soundcloud , I'm loving both of them. These guys don't release new material often so when they do I expect good things and they haven't disappointed me yet. I want to say one hits hard and the other is chill but they're actually both pretty nasty. Download: Zeds Dead - 1975 [Audio clip: view full post to listen] Download: Zeds Dead - The Twilight Zone [Audio clip: view full post to listen]
This is XV's attempt at holding us over until 4-XV-11 (4-15-11) when he drops Zero Heroes . All this is doing is making me more anxious for the release. In XV fashion, you can hear that he sampled Sacantuary for Kingdom Hearts 2. Something only a true Squarian would do and know. XV is making this album free to everyone. So make sure you check back on April 15th, because I will have that for you to fully enjoy over the weekend.
Did you read the title? Download this. Download: Chiddy Bang - Heatwave (Ft. Mac Miller) [Audio clip: view full post to listen]
Better late than never, Christos and I couldn't decide what to do for this post but after listening to most of this new Basic Physics album, it was a no-brainer. Lot's of mainstream sampling here, but don't let that deter you. Plenty of good stuff on the album, including the 3 tracks below. Hit the jump for downloads.

No, that is not a typo. Straight baby makin' music. And it's free, so you really don't have a choice. Lots of hype surrounding this project, and it lives up. Recommended if you like Drake, Frank Ocean, D'Angelo, etc. Download: The Weeknd - House of Balloons
And we have the first nominee for banger of the Summer. Download: David Guetta - Where Dem Girls At Feat. Nicki Minaj & Flo-Rida [Audio clip: view full post to listen]
I knew it was coming but it is hard to stay Calm During the Calamity when it sounds like this! Slick Werk (half of the dubstep duo Deletah) released his first and only EP today. If you've heard Slick Werk's past tracks, you will hear how advanced this EP compares to anything he has done before. With 8 original songs and 3 remixes, your ears will be full of womps, wobbles and some nasty bass until the calamity is over. Highlight Tracks: 1. Greaseball 2. I Learn From You (P.S.A.) 3. Jim [...]

What? You thought we were all electro and hip hop here at First Class Noise? Didn't think we had love for indie folk rock? I'm a total sucker for this genre, and these guys are a great up and coming six piece form Iceland. The same country that brought us Sigur Rós might have brought us another classic. Recommended if you like The Frames (the dude from that movie Once ), Florence and the Machine, Damien Rice, Adele or just good rainy day music (currently storming & lightning like crazy in the [...]
Another jam from the young up and comer, featuring a banger classic from Notorious BIG and an awesome throwback track by Semisonic "Closing Time".

Childish Gambino – Tryouts (Brenton Duvall Remix)

The end of an era. If you have to go out, go out like this. Almost a week straight of sold out shows at Madison Square Garden. The legacy this band and the mastermind behind it, James Murphy, is unexplainable. Luckily we will always have the last show to look back on, in excellent visual and audio quality. Mad props to Pitchfork for the footage. BluRay version anybody? EDIT: Video has been removed. Hopefully you saw this when I threw it up last night. Hopefully another source will come through with an alternate link.
