Listen Up!: Prides – “The Seeds You Sow”


Innovative and infectious synthpop trio, Prides, will release “The Seeds You Sow” 7″ and digital single on March 18 in the U.S. The band just released a new video for “The Seeds You Sow” which you can watch below. Prides just announced a spring tour which will include performances at the SXSW Music Festival as well as major U.S. cities including New York, Philadelphia, Boston and Washington, D.C. All shows are listed below.

The Glasgow based band of three, Prides, formed in 2013 out of the ashes of several local bands.

Stewart Brock sings and plays keyboards, Callum Wiseman is lead guitarist, plays keys and sings and Lewis Gardiner plays drums and is the bands producer.

Album Stream: Phantogram – Voices


Phantogram were very generous in sharing singles from Voices, their first LP for Capitol, but now that you can stream the whole thing via NPR a week in advance of its physical release date, you’ll see that the Saratoga Springs duo have still got a ton of tricks up their sleeve. Album opener “Nothing But Trouble” shows off the band’s effortless skill for dark, sneaky synthpop with an eerie edge; Sarah Barthel and Josh Carter keep it coming from there with unrelenting jams that’ll make you want to dance and cry, probably simultaneously. Check it out – you can grab a physical copy starting February 18. Listen to Phantogram “Voices” here.

Listen Up!: Major Lazer – “Lose Yourself (f. RDX and Moska)”


Nope, unfortunately not an interpolation of Eminem’s 8 Mile soundtrack, but still – here’s new music from Major Lazer, “Lose Yourself,” our next sample from Diplo and company’s upcoming Apocalypse Soon EP. Featuring help from the Colombian producer Moska and the braggy, fun dance hall duo RDX, it’s basically like a track engineered in a laboratory to get partygoers twerking – so if that’s the kind of thing you’re interested in at your Valentines’ party, by all means, add this to your playlist. The EP’s out February 25; you’ll have no trouble cranking this up in the meantime.

Listen Up!: Q-Tip and Busta Rhymes’ The Abstract and the Dragon


You may remember a couple weeks ago when Q-Tip and Busta Rhymes released “Thank You,” a Lil Wayne and Kanye West-featuring collaborative jam. Turns out that was just the tip of the iceberg – Tip and Busta have collaborated on a full, 28-track mixtape called The Abstract and the Dragon, featuring help from A Tribe Called Quest, Missy Elliot, Talib Kweli, and more, which you can stream or download now. According to Busta’s voiceover in the intro track, the guys aimed to hearken back to an old-school, boom-bap hip-hop era – sounds like they succeeded. Check it out.

Album Review: Lorde – Pure Heroine

by  Adam Offitzer


Just when we thought we had the modern music industry all figured out, Lorde comes along and flips the conventional wisdom on its head.

Yes, we’ve seen artists with similar stories before, building word-of-mouth buzz from the strength of a simple EP, eventually developing a cult following and critical acclaim before ever releasing an album (Vampire Weekend, Passion Pit, Lana Del Rey and Macklemore all come to mind).

But Lorde’s leap has been something else entirely. Take a look at the top five songs streaming on Spotify right now: tracks from Miley Cyrus, Avicii, Drake, Katy Perry…and Lorde, sitting proudly at number two, right below an image of a particularly risqué “Wrecking Ball.”

That’s right – a 16 year-old New Zealander, who initially released her five-song EP for free in November 2012, is at the top of the charts with some of the biggest names in pop music from this decade. To call her rise stratospheric would be underselling it.

Listen Up!: Flying Lotus’ hour-long radio station from Grand Theft Auto V


One of the many, many great things about the new GTA is its artist-DJed radio stations. We can’t say we’re experts just yet, but we’re pretty sure Flying Lotus’ station is our favorite so far. The hour-long station features Fly Lotus and Tyler the Creators’ “Garage,” a new Captain Murphy song called “Evil Grin,” that excellent new Clams Casino jam “Crystals,” as well as less-exclusive jams from OutKast, Aphex Twin, Hudson Mohawke Thundercat, Machinedrum and several others. And it’s all streaming below.

Grand Theft Auto V‘s Fly Lo FM, “bringing you some of the greatest music the world has ever heard.”. View the track listing after the break.

Listen Up!: Justin Timberlake – “Take Back The Night”

by Brian Gabriel


After briefly teasing it a couple of days ago, Justin Timberlake has shared “Take Back The Night,” the first single of the second installment of The 20/20 Experience. Which is more a continuation of the album JT released in March. It seems to have always been planned as a double-album – one too epic to be taken in all at once, so they decided to sell it in two parts, like a Hollywood blockbuster.

The second disc of The 20/20 Experience will be out on September 30. It’ll include 11 new songs, though obviously a thematic departure from the first part of 20/20 Experience should not be expected (listen to “Take Back The Night” for proof).

According to the press note, the second half of The 20/20 Experience will also include “a surprise form Justin.”

Says JT: “I originally recorded a massive amount of material and decided on the 20 tracks that I wanted on the album over a year ago. But, when I was mixing and going through all of the songs there were so many that I loved – I couldn’t resist… I had to throw in something extra on the 2nd half.”

Preview: Justin Timberlake – “Take Back The Night”

by Brian Gabriel


After years of SNL appearances and hit-and-miss film projects, Justin Timberlake has had a busy time in 2013. The 20/20 Experience is not only one of our favorite albums of the year, but it’s also the best selling 2013 album in the world. It’d make sense for JT to pace himself and reap the rewards of having a critical and commercial success, but obviously he isn’t stopping there.

In a new clip released today — just days after releasing his R-rated video for single du jour “Tunnel Vision” — JT proudly announces his new single, “Take Back The Night,” which heralds The 20/20 Experience Part 2, his second album of the year. The album is due September 30th, though we can expect a full version of “Take Back The Night” long before that.
