Method Man teams up with the A$AP Mob’s A$AP Nast for a new single titled “Trillmatic,” which has a hard-hitting, vintage boom bap beat that nostalgic hip hop listeners will dig on. While I’m not too crazy about the “funky style” and “funky swag” oozing out of this single, this song does give me hope the A$AP Mob may have more to offer than Rocky and Ferg. Enjoy!
After putting out one of the best singles of this year, Ariel Pink and Jorge Elbrecht team up for another track under the name Jorge Elbrose. The song streaming above is actually set to land on a forthcoming Mexican Summer 10″ compilation and book that celebrates five years of the label’s existence. Check it out here.
Up-and-coming producer and recent Ninja Tune signee Lee Bannon drops another track and video in promotion of his forthcoming album, Alternate/endings. The LP is currently looking at a January 13th release date. Enjoy!
Detroit rapper Quelle Chris isn’t the most energetic MC, but his laid-back delivery approach is complemented with an eccentric cadence, thought-provoking bars, and some ridiculous song topics. If only his bold ideas were a little more well-organized, refined.
The new Moonface record not only features a simple display of Spencer Krug’s vocals against his incredibly refined piano playing, but it’s also the Canadian singer-songwriter’s most personal record yet.
Electronic music producer Evian Christ takes to bangers like a duck to water on this new beat of his, “Salt Carousel,” which is set for release on his Waterfall EP. Look for that early next year.
Check out a review for his Kings and Them compilation below:
Swedish rock outfit MANKIND has a few songs floating up on SoundCloud at the moment, and they’re absolutely over-the-top, ballsy, and in-your-goddamned-face! UGH! GOD! BELHDLHDLGHG!
There are some loud, abrasive elements to this band’s music that reminds me quite of bit of progressive punk bands like Refused, but they’ve got some eccentricities of their own as well. Not only that, but some clear influences coming from the world of garage rock and soul, too. Enjoy!
