Listen Up!: SZA ft. Kendrick Lamar – “Babylon”

SZA-Kendrick-Lamar

TDE is best known for bringing up Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q and Ab-Soul, but that all will change this week when their first female signee, SZA, releases her debut album, Z. “Babylon” was the first single from the album (she’s since released another excellent single with Chance the Rapper called “Child’s Play“), but now we’ve received the final album version, which comes with a typically great verse from Kendrick Lamar.

Listen Up! RAC Remix Porter Robinson’s “Sea Of Voices”

porter_robinson

When Porter Robinson revealed “Sea Of Voices” – the first track from his forthcoming debut album Worlds - during the Oscars via Twitter earlier this month, fans took note: “Sea Of Voices” trended #1 on Facebook as the awards show aired live that evening. The song – a gauzy and atmospheric offering that represents a major sonic departure for Robinson’s previous work – saw more than half-a-million Soundcloud streams in a single day.

Today Porter releases “Sea Of Voices” (RAC Mix), a poppier, synth-inflected take on the track from the highly-respected international Remix Artist Collective. The remix, features playful synthesizers, precise electronics and the vocal hook placed front-and-center, with RAC’s signature brand of intelligent synth-pop adding new dimension to the stunning setup single.

Video: Arctic Monkeys – Arabella

Arctic Monkeys have just released this slick new video for AM standout “Arabella.” The stylish black & white promo is directed by Jake Nava, who’s video for Beyoncé’s “Partition” was made available last week. This is a far less raunchy affair than Beyoncé’s, but highlights Alex Turner and co’s rock direction with them performing in biker bar. The bands fourth album recently shot back up the charts following their wins at the BRIT Awards and of course, Alex Turner’s controversial speech.

Album Stream: ScHoolboy Q’s Debut Album “OxyMoron”

schoolboy-q

On an absolutely stacked music week (St. Vincent! Beck! Wild Beasts! Neneh Cherry!), TDE and Black Hippy ScHoolboy Q asks for some of your time with his major label debut, Oxymoron.

Great guest artists abound, naturally, with Kendrick Lamar handily taking the cake on “Collard Greens.” Favorite track honors, however, go to “Man of the Year.” That Chromatics sample is so astoundingly good, we wouldn’t be surprised to learn that their entire catalog is currently being mined by every rapper on earth.

The LP hits stores and services this Tuesday, Feb. 25, but you can stream the whole thing right now via iTunes Radio.

briar-rabbit

Growing up under the watchful eye of his uncle, B.B. King, it seems only fitting that singer/songwriter, Briar Rabbit has grown up to become quite the gentleman, and one that is musically inclined. With romantic melodies and colorfully layered narrative that evoke painfully beautiful imagery through honest lyricism, Briar Rabbit makes his triumphant return with his recent LP, From Your Bones.

Album Stream: Phantogram – Voices

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)”

Major-Lazer-Apocalpyse-Soon

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.
