after dropping off a new one with common, j. period is here with his entire mixtape. set to be dropped tomorrow for download, you can stream the whole thing via soundcloud. check back tomorrow for the download, and hit the jump for the mighty impressive tracklisting.
oh, lawd yes. vinnie has yet to be a part of any project or release that i don’t like, and it looks like his newly announced solo EP is headed for a similar fate. “somehow the world keeps turning” is an acoustic affair and will land on city by the sea, which is set to drop on february 5th.
blink-182′s follow-up to neighborhoods is here, in a shiny new digital ep. upon first listen, it’s obvious that these guys needed to get back in a room together to make music that makes more sense, especially after that disjointed mess that was neighborhoods. a step in the right direction, and you can stream the whole thing at AP. oh and it dropped today.
fools gold head honcho decided to chime in with some of his own material, the first in some time – for a new, single serving sized EP in tuna melt. four songs, four solid collaborations. it’s out on itunes, but you can stream it below.
in the veins of his boss’ label and maybach music 1-4 tracks comes “maybach curtains,” a high powered collaboration with plenty of big names and lush production to go around the entire label. and we’re all better for it, as the horns do a good number behind john legend’s soulful hook and a nasty (sorry) verse from nas.
rolling stone just premiered coheed and cambria’s downtrodden and pacing title track from their upcoming record, the afterman. part I: the ascension, will be out october 9th, and “the afterman” is just one of nine tracks from the record. listen below – it’s probably not what you’re expecting after “domino: the destitute.”
while the twinsies’ new record doesn’t hit retail until january 2013, they thought it would be a good idea to premiere a single f’n 3.5 months early to build anticipation. after the excellent sainthood, i’m looking forward to whatever these ladies have on deck for us. a few more electronics than i hope for, but still vintage T+S in the vocal department.
i could stand to give two shits about david guetta, but it was very nice to see this on the blogs i stole this from. tegan and sara, on a guetta track? also, this song was semi tailor-made for the pair (aside from the obvious electronic breaks in the hooks), and i look forward to seeing this blow up a bit.
hoodie is back with another free single for his fanbase. taking on UK group rudimental’s single and reworking it, hoodie drops another crossover single that could surely put him in a mainstream arena sometime soon.
hey lupe: good shit, man. it feels good to say this, finally. no cheesy hooks (this is the new “words i never said” without that abysmal skylar grey), a dope beat, tongue in cheek pop culture commentary, some screw influence, and just bars on bars. prior to dropping this single, “lamborghini angels” got itself a disclaimer:
WARNING: If you are easily offended or religiously sensitive DO NOT listen to #LamborghiniAngels it contains very strong subject matter.
and uh… yeah. welcome back, lu. food & liquor II is out september 25th.
first off, singer michael a. is taking some time off to get better mentally, so in turn – the band will be canceling a few tour dates. definitely hope he feels better, especially since the folks at NPR have the first listen of their sophomore LP, out next week.
fang island’s highly anticipated follow-up to 2010′s stellar self-titled outing is only two weeks away. thanks to npr, we got the advanced scoop on such great things. turn your world upside down with guitar licks for the next 45 minutes and jam the whole thing at the link below.
music streaming service RDIO got the jump on the exclusive stream for gold motel’s self-titled sophomore outing, which is out today. the band plans on hitting the road very soon, but in the meantime, don’t be shy – buy the record in a number of neat packages!
