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!



The Weeknd, All Day

Tad bit late, but wow is this good. Think early Drake/The-Dream but with more eclectic production. Download the free/awesome House Of Balloons mixtape here. This and the new Frank Ocean have rekindled my love for the grown & sexy R&B.


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.


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:


British Experimental post-crooning

Man, the UK is kinda on fire as of late. Gorillaz are certified pop stars, The XX kinda ruled 2010, Jessie J seemingly popped right out of the internet and onto the charts. Now there's this guy. Parts D'Angelo, Bon Iver and Antony, and parts Aphex Twin, Fever Ray and Skream - James Blake is dancing the line of soul and experimental and keeps you guessing the whole time.

First heard about him with the CMYK joint, but his sound has since morphed into a sultry mix of assured crooning, melting blips and beeps and frightening rumblings of unease. Peep his gorgeous song and video for his haunting cover of Feist's Limit To Your Love:

And here's a live version of The Wilhelm Scream, off his forthcoming self-titled debut album (pre-order it here):


That's why the coffee was cold!

Just found out Galt Macdermot is from Montreal. Score another one for the Motherland!


Bastante Agrad├ível

The tagline (supposedly) means groovy in Portuguese.


Better than the album cover

I used to hate Kanye West. Specifically for his raps. Not really the lyrics so much as his delivery. But Kanye's not a rapper anymore. He's an artist. Maybe. I dunno. This video is retarded. Not retarded meaning bad, but retarded meaning good.
