The Neighbourhood - "Lurk"


The Neighbourhood are doing exactly what more bands need to do, release mixtapes. Granted, not all the time but every once in awhile. It keeps the material coming, fans interested, and offers up a great free dose of music. The California band will be releasing a free mixtape titled #000000 & #FFFFFF and released another song from the collection called "Lurk." Keeping those dark pop elements and blending a bit of hip hop swagger, these guys have a sound all their own. You can stream the track below and stay tuned for more.

Jamie xx - "Girl"


On May 5th, Jamie xx is releasing his new double A-side single on Young Turks. We've already heard "Sleep Sound" but now we have the flip side cut called "Girl." It's entertainingly perfect for the warm Summer weather that is rolling in, featuring some haunting vocal samples and hypnotic sounds. From the moment this kicks in, it'll grab your attention and hold it all the way through. I think I dig this one more than the other single. Stream below.

Blackbear – The Afterglow (Album Stream)

Stream the new project from Blackbear
So sort of in a smooth and relatively low-key way, singer and producer Blackbear released his new album The Afterglow yesterday. He also released on his Soundcloud in one continuous stream, something you don't always see happening. But he creates a 6 track project fill with that downtempo R&B sound and certainly experiments with pop and indie as well. His sound has really started to come together and finds a way for the listener to expect something new and different, yet still recognize that its entirely Blackbear's style. Stream below and check out the tracklist below.

Lana Del Rey – "West Coast" (Dan Auerbach Mix)

Dan Auerbach mixes Lana Del Rey

Not too long ago Lana Del Rey released her new single "West Coast" off her upcoming record, Ultraviolence. The album is being produced by The Black Keys own Dan Auerbach, who decided to put his own little mix to the single. Most of the original track is still here, but he changes the tempo and pitch of Del Rey's vocals a bit that just gives it a slightly new touch. Stream it below.

Daft Punk - "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger" (Dillon Francis Remix)

Dillon Francis remix of Daft Punk

Usually when I spot a remix of Daft Punk I ignore it because you can't really make the French duo's music any better. Yet, I also know that Mad Decent affiliated Dillon Francis has a knack for making ridiculously good remixes, so when I saw he touched their classic "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger," I figured I'd give it a shot. It's done really well, keeping most of the cool dance vibes from the original, but adding in some hand claps, speeding parts up, and then some hard hitting electronic breakdowns. Easily one of the best Daft Punk remixes out there. Stream and download below.

Flosstradamus – Wake & Bake (Full EP Stream)

Wake and Bake EP from Flosstradamus

Production duo Flosstradamus always get the party poppin' with their energetic and trap filled tunes. Since not only was yesterday Easter, but the smokers holiday of 4/20, the duo released a 4 track EP called Wake & Bake. On the stream, you'll find a remix of Young Thug and Baauer. It's a nice treat and will give you some fill of Flosstradamus, although I'm sure something new will pop up soon from them as they never waste time releasing some new dope material.

Vacationer - "The Wild Life"

New single from Vacationer

Kenny from The Starting Line & Matt from Body Language are back again as Vacationer and released their new single "The Wild Life" a few days ago. This song will be on their sophomore album Relief, out June 24th on Downtown Records. It finds this cool balance of indie and pop, but also explores a relaxing side of music. This is your kind of tune on a Monday, especially after a holiday and you are getting back to the normal grind. Stream below.

Sampha – “Too Much” (Freddy Winter Remix)


One singer that started capturing more attention over the last year is Sampha, who has a soulful and R&B sound. His music has also been subjected to numerous remixes, which all have been pretty well done. One of the popular tracks to be remixed is "Too Much," which British producer/artist Freddy Winter put his touches on it.

The producer is not quite a familiar name yet, but he clearly knows how to make a cool track. Leaving the original R&B sounds, he updates it with some electronic vibes and keeps it a relaxing listen. Stream and download below.

Ab-Soul – "Tree Of Life"


So, yesterday was a really nice day out here in Pennsylvania, so I spent it outside and neglected the blog for the day. While I had done that, Ab-Soul decided to share a new track called "Tree of Life." This is the first solo material the TDE signed rapper has released in awhile, but it seems we will be getting some more as he is releasing a new mixtape called, Longterm 3. Not sure if this song will be on that tape, but most likely. Stream the jam below.

TOURIST – “Patterns” ft. Lianne La Havas

New song from Tourist featuring Lianne La Havas

Soon, we will have a new EP from TOURIST and now he released another song from the project called "Patterns" featuring the lovely Lianne La Havas on vocals. It's quite the tune taking on the UK bass scene and flipping that into a mix of house and soul. The way a lot of these genres have unexpectedly been place together lately, yet works so perfectly makes you wonder why these combination took so long to take on. The track is excellent and should give you more incentive to check out the EP when it is released next week.

COLLEGE RADIO PICK OF THE WEEK!


KCR out of San Diego State is bringing it with back to back picks! Their submission, "Nevermind the End" by Brooklyn-based, Tei Shi, is this week's Pick of the Week.

The production of the song is reminiscent of Phantogram, but the addition of Tei Shi's voice gives the it its own tranquil and unique flavor. Similar to the sound of her music, there is something very twisted and raw in this video, yet balanced with a subtle beauty. It's easy to be drawn in by the dark undertow of the track, but this video entices the listener and then lets things get a little weird...

Reva DeVito – "Friday Night" (Produced By KAYTRANADA)

Reva DeVito links up with Kaytranada

In 2014 it's going to be hard to not come across the producer Kaytranada, who's electronic/hip hop style has been everywhere. His latest production is for the singer Reva DeVito, who brings her smooth pop/R&B vocals over the upbeat and layered track "Friday Night." From the drums and synths, you get not only your electronic fix but a bit of dance vibes as well. This was a nice introduction for me of DeVito, who I'll be following up on for sure in the future.

Ellie Goulding - "Burn" (Karman Remix)

Karman Remixes Ellie Goulding

British singer Ellie Goulding just has the right sound for a good remix and the latest is from producer Karman who took on her hit "Burn." Barely out of his teens, the Beverly Hills resident keeps her amazing vocal work and builds a nice array of synths and electronic around it. The song has a nice layered focus and is one of my new favorite Ellie Goulding remixes to date.

Snakehips - "Forever"


London duo Snakehips have never disappointed me when it comes to their music and "Forever" continues that path of dope tunes. They've been a bit quiet in recent weeks, but clearly they are working on some solid releases. "Forever" features a slick electronic beat that will have you moving along with the rhythm. It kind of has this  throwback 90's dance/hip hop sound to it along with those nice vocal samples. My only complaint is that it is way too short, clocking in under 2 minutes.
