Let’s all relax for a little bit, after all the excitement of the previous posts….

News flash: Brooklyn tweens are being exploited!!! Amber alert!!! Tiny Masters of Today are two kids making fuzzy garage rock that sounds a whole lot more calculated than it is and have an album, Skeletons, coming out on Mute in June. And they’re already getting reworked, remixed, and helped out by the YYY’s, CSS, and Kimya Dawson. I’m shocked and appalled.
Listen: Fly Mode

West Coast hip-hop mainstay Pigeon John and some dude named Flynn Adam are joining forces as Rootbeer. They will release their debut EP, The Pink Limousine, on March 10, and hit the road for some tour dates. What’s it gonna sound like? Straight from the horse’s mouth: “MGMT injected with some N.E.R.D. and A Tribe Called Quest.”
