Nada Surf is a Brooklyn indie rock band that's been hanging around for nearly twenty years now just doing their indie thing. They've put out some solid albums over the years and they have a new one called The Stars Are Indifferent To Astronomy coming out on January 24. Waiting For Something is a single from the upcoming album that sounds like vintage Nada Surf. It's a very breezy, upbeat song with enough catchiness to make you want to listen to it more. Listen to the song below and if you like, enter your [...]

"I made it big poppin', yeah." If the original was too simplistic for you Paper Diamond can add in some whoomp whoomp . Same old song, just with a lot more bang. By the way, Echoes of Silence has grown on me a lot since the first listening . Good stuff.

After a little hiatus that involved far too much sitting in a small room studying, I'm finally ready to dive back into the world of music and blogging. I've come across several songs that I plan on posting soon, but I'm going to start off with the song that I heard a few months ago, but didn't really like until a few days ago. Born Gold is a band that recently changed their name from Gobble Gobble and thank goodness for that because when I heard this song a few months ago, I refused to like [...]
No matter what our belief may be, I think everyone has a place they can think remember for comfort. Heaven, home, next year, Chick-fil-a... Yeah Chick-fil-a sounds so good right now. Download Emeli Sandé Heaven (Alpines Remix) Download Emeli Sandé Heaven (Alpines Remix)
"Look at your purse, you need the help, you can't deny it baby." Ever wonder what Pusha T rapping would look underneath a glass table being swept by cocaine? Look no further. These visuals are off Fear of God II: Let Us Pray . It didn't sell too well (8,900 copies the first week) but it still has some favorites . Amen. All of you Re-Up Gang fans should be pretty happy to hear that him and Malice are working on a project .
Zoobs and I were talking about how we didn't know what to expect on Rockie Fresh's Driving 88 (1/23/12). I mentioned I liked Rockie better on hype tracks, here's a perfect example. I'm hoping we'll hear more of this. I should mention although the song was released yesterday judging by the style the hook was done it sounds like it was recorded a while ago.

Baiting me in by advertising your music as food I see, good one Donnis . For the next 3 weeks the Atlanta rapper is going to be releasing a series of Snack Packs, each one will feature a couple tracks, artwork, and a visual. I'm not the biggest fan of Donnis but I do like that he's comfortable going over the more unconventional stuff. I don't see that too often from southern rappers. Listen to "Gimme" below. You can check out the rest of his pack here . Download Donnis Gimme (featuring [...]
Yesterday was a pretty crazy day in the music world: 1. Common dissed Drake pretty blatantly on his remix of "Stay Schemin". 2. The Shins released a new song. 3. Mike Posner released some bad ass visuals for his single "Looks Like Sex" 4. Lupe Fiasco and Pharrell announced that they were going to be releasing an album soon. 5. Coachella's line up this year is going to [...]
Wow has it been a long time since I've heard anything from the Portland based indie rock band The Shins . Port of Marrrow , their next studio album, is going to be their first release through their vocalist James Mercer's record label. "Simple Song" is happy, catchy, melody filled, and sounds like a side step towards to their sound from Chutes Too Narrow ; Marrow/Narrow... coincidence? I'm sure this will have you pretty excited for their album release on March 20, 2012.
No this isn't the mixtape that's coming out this January 23, it's the title track. Hop in Rockie's ride and vibe along with him on his pursuit of fame and riches. I hope Driving 88 has some hype tracks, that's when I think he goes hardest.
I've been waiting to write all week, because I'm back on my school grizzy. It's bout that time to write for another week of ANY GIVEN SATURDAY. Let's get it shawwwwty. Another week peeps, and its been kind of chilly in the area so I can't really drive with my windows down so I can't get buck wild in the car listening to some hype music or else I'll get sick and I'm already the illest because I suffer from realness... see what I did there? Lets get into the songs.
As promised Rick Ross drops his latest tape Rich Forever . Appearances from Diddy , Pharrell , Drake , Wale , and even John Legend . Download it via Live Mixtapes . I haven't heard the tape yet but I actually have a high expectation for it. I really had lost hope for Ross and MMG sometime last year but I think him and [...]
Another talented individual from Canada! This reminds me somewhat of Feist with heavier synths and bass accents, but the rhythm is definitely symmetrical. I would imagine that this is what life would sound like if we could walk on clouds. This song is so angelical, I just can't understand anything she's saying.
Five days into 2012 and already we get a heavy slugger from G-Eazy and two others who I honestly haven't heard before but I really thought Meta had a great verse and flow. It's always nice to hear rappers go in just for kicks and making it seem so effortless.
