With an artist from almost every corner of the musical map releasing an album soon, albums are streaming left and right. That’s good for everyone. Good for music. Good for Murrica.
RELEASE THE FREEDOM!!!!!!!!
NEKO CASE: The much much much anticipated sixth solo album from the New Pornographers, Maow & Cub alum “The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You” brings out every facet of her previous albums you loved. Headstrong, rocking feminist albums. Catchy romantic drifty ballads. Country so heartbroken and experienced you’ll cry on first impact. Enjoy.
EARL SWEATSHIRT: The Tyler the Creator chum and beastly GOLFWANG rapper’s got a new one. I’ma let y’all draw your own conclusions. I’m a student of the hiphop arts but never been big into Odd Future. Let’s see if “Doris” changes my mind. Much love to my friends at MostlyJunkFood (read them early & often on tweets and their site) for the stream.
CHIEF KEEF: Sleepy rapper and amateur liquor drunk Chief has released part deux of his “Bang” mixtape. I hope he woke up long enough to yell his usual illiterate nonsense. Or do I? Maybe he is better off with Justin Vernon’s direction. Oh God who am I becoming? WHITNEY. DIET COKES ARE BURNING YOUR HEART WITH ACID. (via Stereogum)
THE PREATURES: If you love R&B, this shit is perfect. This is perfect for any Monday, really. I’m prone to hyperbole if you haven’t noticed. BUT THIS SHIT RIGHT HERE. THIS SHIT. RIGHT HERE. Take a listen. It’s just one song but never doubt the power of discovering new music and it’s mood lifting powers.
DIARRHEA PLANET: Ugh I just typed that. This is a good band with a godawful name. And Im a girl with a crush on dudes who named themselves DRENGE. Anyway, this is very very upbeat guitar with a kind of arena rock vibe and hope it suits your workday “in the zone” void the way Baroness or Slayer might’ve in the past. GET SOME SHIT DONE MUSIC RIYCHEER. (via Consequence of Sound)
