Video: Run The Jewels video - “Blockbuster Night Part 1”

Trevor Kane directs the latest Run The Jewels video, “Blockbuster Night Part 1.” The clip see’s the rappers half-assing it as EMT’s on the streets of Atlanta, spending their time getting up to no good. Black Lips' Cole Alexander also makes an appearance as a patient.

Listen: Faith No More – “Motherfucker”

Leave it to Faith No More to return with their first new music since 1998 and go with a name like “Motherfucker” for their lead single. Bassist Bill Gould will be producing the record himself which will be recorded in the band's Oakland rehearsal space and released on their own imprint, Reclamation Records.

Motherfucker” is a song about accountability so the band’s approach of handling the record internally hits the nail on the head, as does the soaring chorus of motherfucker being repeated in a radiant manner by lead singer Mike Patton.

"Motherfucker" will be released as a seven-inch single on Record Store Day Black Friday, November 28. The record, limited to 5,000 copies, will feature a B-side remix of the track courtesy of  J.G. Thirlwell

Listen: Heems – “New York”

Former Das Racist emcee Heems shared a track titled “New York” today. The tune was produced by Heems, Patrick Wimberly and Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson and is a “leftover” from his forthcoming LP, working title, Eat Pray Thug. The LP is scheduled to drop sometimes early next year and reportedly features Dev Hynes and Hudson Mohawke amongst others.

Listen/Download: Mis-bit - "Përmallim"

Mis-bit just dropped the first movement from his forthcoming four-part ep titled Saudade. "Përmallim", which means longing or yearning in Albanian, hits all the sweet spots with it’s manipulated vocal samples and atmospheric, minimal, dark, twisted take on electronic music.  Mis-Bit is definitely one to watch out for in 2015 and beyond so why not get yourself acquainted today before the bandwagon gets crowded. 

Video: Arca – “Xen”

Arca and Jesse Kanda continue their creative partnership with another new video, this time for the stellar title track from Arca’s Xen LP.  Much like the visuals we have seen so far, “Xen” keeps things dark, distorted, atmospheric and odd in the best way possible.

Happy Friday y’all, I hope everyone is staying warm where ever you are because it’s getting cold here in NYC as the holiday season approaches. I figured let’s heat things up with a remix/mashup I did back in September pairing together Lil’ Wayne’s “Lollipop” with Daytrip’s “Flight 43 (NYC)” for something I call “NYC Lollipop.” Give it a spin below and if you like what you hear feel free to download a copy and share with others.

Listen: Father John Misty - "Bored in the USA"

Last week Josh Tillman shared a new tune from his forthcoming Father John Misty LP, I Love You, Honeybear by the name of “Bored in the USA.” The tune continues down the already fine path laid out in Fear Fun, lyrically focusing on sex, drugs and alcohol.

Listen: TĀLĀ – “Alchemy EP”

TALA’s second EP, Alchemy, is finally available to stream in full, with three of the four tracks having already made their way onto the internet prior there is still something new for everyone as “Unfinished Business’ makes its official debut with the release. The tune is an upbeat stimulating blend of distorted vocals and drum & bass-tinged production that further shows off the singer/producers skill set.

Video: Clark – "Winter Linn”

Clark's latest self-titled LP is a real monster that hits all the right spots. With each listen it brings some new realized nuance that I hadn't picked up on previously, making it a treasure trove of micro-surprises for all those like-minded headphone jocks out there.  Director Christopher Hewitt takes on video duties for “Winter Linn” which in my opinion successfully acts an interpretation of Clark's vision for his new album - "music like sculpture."
