I like house music much more now than when I was growing up.

Because of stuff like this. It's made me go back and explore the roots of house and discover the intricacies of what may seem rather minimal and repetitive to some. Eliphino's new & beautifully complex EP, More Than Me, is out on limited edition vinyl, Oct. 31st on SomeThinkSounds. Peep the digital-only pre-release teaser track below.

(Shouts to the homie SV4 for learning me.)

James Blake + Justin Vernon = Fall Creek Boys Choir

This just dropped on BBC Radio 1 a few minutes ago after much hype/speculation. I hope there's more of this to come.


Aloe Blacc + MJ

One of the most original arrangements of this song I've ever heard.


Going Back To Cali For The First Time

I'm going to Cali for the first time in 17 years and I know it's going to be hectic, but in a dream world, it would be more like Dirty Gold.

They were kind/smart enough to offer a stream of the new EP as well as all kinds of formats for sale.

They are not out of high school yet.

BONUS CUT: Peep the DJ Philistine edit, for your summertime dub fix.



Balam Acab's Hip Hop-friendly alter-ego, ETHEREA, just dropped a free/pretty/beautiful/bumpin/psych/haunting beat tape called FREE ETHEREA, which you can DL here. I would if I was you. I'd also check him pon de Twitter, cuz he's going to be busy this summer. Sample below and enjoy!



Nine Types Of Excited!

One of my favorite bands (and neighbors), gear up for their upcoming album, Nine Types Of Light (out April 12th on DGC/Interscope), by releasing the video to the first single, Will Do. Pre-order TV On The Radio's new music, in all kinds of formats, here.


Push A Ton Of Fear

New Pusha T mixtape. Stream here, or click the image to DL. Yuuggghhhh!


It's been 14 years.

RIP to the best that ever did it.


King Warrior Magician Lover

Just got reminded of this kid Rob Roy, who popped onto my radar a while back with these two awesome videos below, showcasing his very interesting/different style and wide musical range, somthing along the lines of "a mix of Andre 3000 and Little Dragon." Recently signed to Dim Mak, he's currently working on his newnew (date TBD), and is dropping all kinds of mysterious interweb tidbits (like this new tumblr account, his soundlcoud and twitter) that lead me to believe something good is coming soon. In the meantime, you can download his first album here.



The Most Extravagant Single In History

I loves me some Datarock and was wondering when they were going to release some new material, when I stumbled upon some fantastic news - New music coming real soon! Not an album, per se, but, as they claim (and I must agree), "The most extravagant single in history." You can stream a new track (and lead single off the upcoming, uhh, single) Catcher In The Rye over at this slick looking micro site (or you can DL it here). Basically, you get a custom designer toy (pictured above, duh!) with 4GB flash drive, 105 bonus tracks (yes, One Hundred & Five), 1500 images, 20 videos and a 60 minute concert film. Wowzers! If for some reason you're not up on these guys, here's a good reason why you should be:
