Chicago’s new First Lady is not fucking around on her latest single that dropped this week via Pigeons and Planes. We have been paying attention to
Today we got a glimpse at the dopeness that will surround the 2017 edition of the Pitchfork Music Festival with the announcement of the headliners: LCD Soundsystem will headline on Friday night, followed by A Tribe Called Quest on Saturday night, with Solange closing out the festival on Sunday.
I called it with both the Tribe and Solange heading for this fest, both coming off a 2016 that saw them realize truly amazing records. LCD Soundsystem for their part are headlining a summer festival in the Chi for a second year in a row, extending their comeback some and allowing plenty more to tell ’em to shut up and play the hits!
Along with this news, the festival organizers have announced they are partnering with Saint Heron, the innovative label and arts platform founded by Solange Knowles. The Saint Heron-curated event series will feature an onsite art installation, film screening, artist talks, late night jazz jam sessions, and more. These will take place from Thursday, July 13th through Sunday, July 16th at various locations throughout Chicago. Find more details below. Continue Reading
has leveled up on the Midnight Club Ep, easily his best piece of work to date. Aided by gloomy heavy hitting beats provided by and more, Roo$ki drops hypnotizing bars about dealing with the darkness in life while keeping the finesse raps we have come to love from the Dash boy. This is definitely Roo’s standout drop and while all the tracks are bangers, “Attached” and “Lights” stood out to me in particular. They are not your typical love songs; filled with destructive undertones and addictive flow, these have to be some of the best songs in his catalog yet. Don’t sleep and check out the Midnight Club Ep below!
While many of us saw our country destined to go down in flames this month, we were also blessed with an incredible soundtrack to go along with it. Although many of our favorite artists dropped songs in February, here are 10 songs that went under the radar deserving as much attention. Listen Below:

NIIA, based out of LA, has made some appearances on POD in the past but things are a bit different with todays post. The L.A. vocalist has not only announced her singing to Atlantic Records, but she has also announced the release date of her debut album (5/5).
To celebrate the occasion, NIIA released some visuals for her single “Hurt You First” directed by Sasha Samsonova. Check them out above.
We are only 2 months into 2017 and things are looking pretty good for the homie CLB. So far this year, our local DJ has been featured on BBC1’s Diplo & Friends, started a techno project titled Night Fight with LA’s DJ Wall, along with getting so much love and support from big names like Diplo, Baauer, Dillon Francis, Brenmar, Anna Lunoe, and others.
CLB recently dropped a few tracks on Stanton Warrior’s label called Punks and Illeven:Eleven, and now he hooked us up at POD to drop his newest highly anticipated track titled Toxic. CLB stepped out of his comfort zone while making this track as it branches off from his usual style/genre, but still shares the same dope sound as all of his other work.
CLB is definitely one artist to look out for this year as he has an album with Night Fight in the making on top of forthcoming collabs with some big names from Chicago and London, along with a ton of solo projects in the works.
But for now, check out the premiere of Toxic down below!
