Easy enough, right? [...]

10. Kurt Vile feat. Bradford Cox – “Freak Train” Atlanta, 2011: Kurt Vile takes the stage for the last time with the original lineup of his backing band, the Violators. Deerhunter’s Bradford Cox is in attendance. Vile brings him on stage and launches into “Freak Train”, resulting in a nine minute freak out of squealing guitars and unforgiving feedback. Vile, usually soft in his delivery, shouts the lyrics into the microphone: “Ride on a freak traaaiiin!” Fortunately, this song and five others from the set were preserved, and [...]
Justin Timberlake - Suit And Tie (Feat. Jay-Z) Here is the long overdue first original solo material from Justin Timberlake , since he released the critically acclaimed FutureSex/LoveSounds in 2006. The jam is called “ Suit & Tie ” and features none other than Jay-Z . The song is nothing really that amazing, although if its any indication of what we can expect from his upcoming album The 20/20 Experience, we should be really fucking excited . [...]
When Frank Ocean recruited the help of Andre 3000 for "Pink Matter," in the back of his head you know he wanted OutKasts to reunite. Even if it wasn't in the same studio. Progress is progress. Justin Timberlake is back with his old frind Timbaland on the boombastic "Suit and Tie" with a couple of verses by Mr. NYC himself, Jay - Z. Timberlake is looking at releasing "The 20/20 Experience" sometime this year. Lastly, Destiny's Child's new "Nuclear" single produced by Pharrell Williams is a burner. I can't wait for [...]

Wow! It's been a while AWmusic. To be honest, I'm not as up-to-date as I'd like to be when composing a year-end list, but I tried my best. Here are my picks for Top Music Videos of 2012, in no particular order. Enjoy! Kendrick Lamar - Swimming Pools good kid, m.A.A.d city - what an album!

After sorting through the best songs and albums of 2012 (and figuring out who to watch in 2013), take an extended trip down memory lane and enjoy a recap of 2012 in pictures.
Top 9 songs I listened to on Itunes this year. (Fuck 10? What makes 10 so special?) 9. Billie Holiday - "These Foolish Things" If I could die and be buried in a song, it would be this one. Therefore, perhaps rather morbidly, I guess I listened to it pretty much every day on the bus. 8. Antony and Bryce Dessner - "I Was Young When I Left Home" It’s raining outside. Find a mud [...]
Welcome to the end of 2012. And possibly the world as a whole if you're so inclined to believe. Once again, we've taken the stray thoughts that fell through the cracks in our Annual Report and compiled them into one (hopefully) comedic list. As my esteemed colleague Jeremy Larson wrote last year , "Year-end summaries, lists, recaps, and reports are just study guides for an exam that’s never happening, you guys ." True, but by listing things and poking a little fun, we're doing our part to remind you that the music industry can be [...]

There's absolutely no reason for reasonable human beings to attach anything more than minimal importance to the Grammys, arbitrary and out-of-touch as they are.

Another Monday and to commemorate the crushing mundanity the day embodies with a most despairing inherence, we're back here divulging a further ten tracks from our 2012 ranking. Our previous instalment took in a Fuck Button, the irrefutably inimitable Bobby Womack, and a lo-res JPG of a cat in a box . This one, meanwhile, clicks through a smattering of woebegone London lo-fi, a couple snared from the Captured Tracks roster, the inevitable Hot Chip entry, and something ever so slightly special from Sam Willis who was once, all in all, just another [...]
