Snoop Dogg

POD was back in Austin this past week once again covering the iconic festival SXSW and it’s pretty safe to say that we had the best one yet.

With having been down in ATX for pretty much the entire duration of the fest, we were able to take in shows in every possible extent in all sorts of venues. While many of these acts are bands and artists we’ve seen several times before back home like Chance The Rapper and Twin Peaks, we also took in shows from artists that we’ve only covered regarding studio releases, plus some surprises.

We also had our photographer Ruben Bustillo around and he captured some great shots of what went down in ATX like Snoop’s keynote as seen above; check those out after the list.

Run The Jewels 2

For their excellent collaboration with Zach De La Rocha on “Close Your Eyes (And Count To Fuck),” Run The Jewels have unveiled a music video that reflects the political themes that the song touches on.

On this video we follow a member of the police struggling and battling with a young black man, playing like a short film that’s analyzing the constant troubles surrounding these two camps. It’s all so exhausting, but poetic. See the clip above.

Passion Pit - Lifted Up (1985)

action-bronson-mr-wonderful

This week Action Bronson released his major label debut Mr. Wonderful and to help support it, Bam Bam hit the Late Show with David Letterman to perform his collaboration with Chance The Rapper, “Baby Blue.” Joined by Chano and Donnie Trumpet, this performance was spectacular thanks to a backing from a full live band for the Jazz-y number. It only got better when Chance finished his verse and yelps “Donnie,” and then Nico delivered the bone-chilling trumpet outtro.

Letterman himself was super impressed, and you will be too. Check it out above.

Action Bronson Earl Sweatshirt

This week is a massive one for Hip Hop with the release of full-lengths albums from Action Bronson and Earl Sweatshirt, so it’s only right that they celebrate this with a song together.

Bronsolino and the Odd Future rep connected for “Warlord Leather,” produced by The Alchemist. The music has a cool, tribal finish to it while the rapper’s are lethal as ever with their rhymes.

toro-y-moi

Here’s another one from Toro y Moi off his forthcoming full-length album What For? The song is titled “Run Baby Run” and it further proves that Chaz Burdock’s new project is all retro. On this one you hear a clear nod to Psychedelic Rock with a mellow groove, a la The Beatles during their Sgt. Pepper’s era.

Hear “Run Baby Run” below. Read More →
