Listen: Evian Christ - "Salt Carousel"

While we have been fans of UK producer Joshua Leary for quite some time now the spotlight will shine even brighter on Evian Christ when he returns in 2014 with a new EP on Tri Angle records called Waterfall. Obviously Evian’s star has risen since lending some production duties on Kanye’s Yeezus and it’s well deserved. The EP was recorded partially in Evian’s hometown of Ellesmere Port, England and partially in New York, you can check out “Salt Carousel” now below…

Video: Arcade Fire – “Afterlife”

The Arcade Fire return to your screens today with their latest music video from the recently released Reflektor LP. "Afterlife" was written and directed by Emily Kai Bock, the narrative is a dark and compelling, incorporating nightmares, lost lovers, and familial bonds into a somnambulistic seven minutes. You may recall that Kai Bock also directed videos for other Onomatopoeia favorites including Grimes' "Oblivion" and Grizzly Bear's "Yet Again," that were also produced by The Creators Project.

Video: Clams Casino Makes A Beat Live Day 1

Clams Casino has partnered up with HP computers to create a song via a live Youtube streaming event using his HP Split X2 laptop of course. The two day event started mid-day yesterday and will wrap up sometimes today. Helping Clams is Vic Mensa alongside several other session musicians and a live painter who is rendering various quotes from viewers who live tweet their suggestions for the track.

I watched about an hour and a half of the stream yesterday while it was occurring live and thought some of the suggested ideas worked well. Mensa can come off as a little annoying from time to time but it’s still an interesting concept that gives fans a peak into how clams works. Egyptian Cotton Y’all!

Killer Mike and El-P return with the latest video from their first-class Run The Jewels project. "Banana Clipper" was one of many highlight tracks on the album but possibly leads the pack in regards to production; it also features a cameo from Big Boi.

Video: KOOL A.D. - "Naughty By Nature"

Kool A.D.  shared a new tune and video titled “Naughty By Nature” which is composed of found footage of what looks like a Japanese talk show. The track is set to appear on Kool’s upcoming album, Word O.K., that doesn’t have a release date just yet but I’m sure we will be getting some more of these previews before the official drop, oh and the beat by Mike Finito is pretty fun as well.

Listen: M.I.A. - "Matangi" (Full LP Stream)

As seems to be the trend now days M.I.A. has shared a full album stream of her latest, Matangi, which is due out next Tuesday.  The LP features appearances by The Weeknd, and production from Switch, Illangelo, and Hit Boy. In my opinion LP #4 is still lacking some of the fun found in the first two records but isn't as trying as her last venture. The second half of the album works better for me that the first half, check it below…
