Our first taste of the second Run The Jewels collaboration from Killer Mike and El-P.
The second single from DFA 1979’s upcoming sophomore LP made it to YouTube earlier this month after being released on CD at a show. Today it makes its officially sanctioned way to Spotify.
Her latest single from the upcoming LP Sucker makes its way to Spotify this week.
"The Nashville weirdo party collective (formerly known as Terror Pigeon Dance Revolt!) sent us their forthcoming album Live It Up Before You Die It Up! We listened to their song ‘Girl’ and instantly replayed it 1,400 times in a row. It is so goddamn catchy and anthemic, but with absolutely no song structure whatsoever. It sounds like they snipped out pieces of eight different half-finished songs and mashed them all together until they kinda fit (but not really). So prepare to go through a wide range of emotions on ‘Girl,’ all of which wind down to one ultimate conclusion: party.” –Noisey

It’s been four years since the last release from the indie supergroup of AC Newman, Neko Case, Dan Bejar, and Co. and critics are saying it’s a return to form. Mojo says it’s “near the top of the band’s bejewelled catalogue.”
The maxmialist dance producer duo’s follow-up to 2009’s Zephyr is, according to Magnet, “a jolt, a juggernaut, an absolute joyride.”
The much-buzzed-about Atlanta rapper is 18 and has just released his debut album for free. The New York Times calls it “an astonishingly assured debut, full of multipart songs teeming with deeply felt ideas. He has an easy way with melody but also a consistently grand-scaled sense of theater, which makes for music that’s intimate and imposing all at once.” Not bad for a guy just a few months out of high school.
The prolific garage rocker typically craps out an album of awesome after a couple days in the studio. His latest took a full month (gasp) and the result is a 17-track double album, his lone full-length release of the year thus far and one that people who say such things are calling his most polished release yet. In typical (Ty-pical?) Ty fashion, the album isn’t on Spotify, but you can still catch it streaming over at NPR.
A solid debut of dreamy psych rock out of Arkansas offers up a soundtrack to the last stretch of summer proper.

“Death Grips, Grouper, Flowdan, and Gonjasufi are among the artists who have contributed to Angels and Devils, which, as the title suggests, is an album of two extremes: a quiet, almost ambient first half, followed by an intense, noisy, jarring second half.” –Metacritic
The legendary London label collects two disc’s worth of tracks from their roster including Jai Paul, Vampire Weekend, M.I.A., Basement Jaxx, The XX, Jungle, and Radiohead —who you won’t actually hear on the Spotify version of the album since, well, you remember. The vinyl box set is pretty bad-ass though if you’ve got $60.
