Sounds: Cam’ron and A-Trak – “Humphrey”

Sounds like vintage Cam’ron to my ears.

Sounds: Pharoahe Monche – “Bad MF”

Pharaohe Monche getting ready to release his new album, PTSD, this April, offers up a taste.

Sounds: Del The Funky Homosapien and Jehst – “Do What We Wanna Do”

Del and some British rappers go well together.

Video: Crookers – “#Heavy”

Crookers minimal-style tech delivers the usual punch. And some sex sounds.

Video: Pixies – “Magdalena”

New song from the Pixies, sounding kind of like a weirdly updated version of a Bossanova-era tune. How you like ’em now?

Sounds: Bishop Nehru – “You Stressin'” (produced by Disclosure)

My Rockland County hometown hero, Bishop Nehru, spitting over decidedly futuristic beats courtesy of hot-shitDisclosure.

Video: I Break Horses – “You Burn”

A new video from one of my favorite bands from past few years – I Break Horses get melancholy with “You Burn.”

Video: Killer Mike – “Ghetto Gospel”

I’m a little late on the uptake, but this Killer Mike shit is really good.

Video: Action Bronson Tour Announcement

Best tour announcement ever.

Sounds: Liars – “Mess on a Mission”

Once again, Liars are reinventing themselves and trying something different. That’s what makes me want to listen to every new album they release. Mess comes out 3/25.

Sounds: Woods – “Leaves Like Glass”

New album from Woods on the way – With Light and Love out 4/15. I can feel the summer breeze blowing already…

Sounds: Owls – “I’m Surprised”

First new album from Owls in 13 years called Two is coming out March 25, and things are sounding a lot more accessible than, say, anything in the last ten years from Joan of Arc. I think that’s a good thing.

Video: patten – “Drift”

patten releases his new album, ESTOILE NAIANT, via Warp on 2/25. Equal parts abstract and accessible electronic music, with a whisper of a beat beneath it all. Watch the video below.

Sounds: Shabaam Sahdeeq – “Conceited Confidence”

I haven’t heard much from Shabaam Sahdeeq for a while, but he’s back in fine form with this new single.
