First it was Helplessness Blues (found here) that really grabbed my attention and started the trail for Fleet Foxes. I cannot tell you the number of times that song has been blasted in the car coming back from a long night out, it is too perfect. Today though we have another track titled Battery Kinzie. It is a quick story compared to the former, but it still brings the best. Check it out below while I go to finance class and do some serious discounting of monies.
Fleet Foxes - Battery Kinzie
Alright so Miami is going to be on fire in about 4 days. You have the top DJ's in the world showing up for the Ultra Music Festival for a weekend of crushing dubstep and one night stands. Avicii is one of only a handful attending and throughout the week I will be laying down some from the lineup. Listen in to some of his latest tracks below and get ready for more this week.
The Weeknd (Abel Tesfaye), who has busted down the door and is killing the indie music scene, has dropped the first offical mixtape. It is a bit different this time because this guy was pretty much unknown a few weeks back and then Drake helped him out via twitter. Once people knew where to find him, they heard what he had to offer and he took off. 'House Of Balloons' comes before us as a R&B tape but has so many unique elements you can't stick him in just one genre. I want to say he is to R&B as James Blake is to Dubstep, both straying from the conventional approach. Check out some of the headline tracks along with the link for the mixtape.
The Quick Campfire - Giving us a glance into something fresh spotted on the trail ahead. These are meant to get things burning in terms of new artists, albums or mad-mixes. In other words, this is a good ol' starter fire.
This song is killer for spring, just ..... killer. It comes off Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.'s debut album 'It's A Corporate World' which drops June 7th. Figured it was time to get this ball rolling down the right trail and this track is the perfect first step. Enjoy it below although we don't have the MP3 download.
Keeping JOYWAVE's trail burning here, we have the latest project which is a mixtape titled '77777'. I must say anytime you sample Lip Bizkit, Drake and Calvin Harris on the same tape you are doing something that hasn't been done before, but it works and it works fucking well. My immediete top picks off the tape are Winnipeg, Betelgeuse, and Space Walk. There is definetly a lot to hear which is why I included the full stream below. Once you realize you want to download the tape just click the link below. Enough talk, time to click play.
