Howard – “Mother’s Wedding”

posted by Oscar October 18, 2017

Brooklyn-based group Howard are making their POD debut today thanks to their new song “Mother’s Wedding.” The song came in the aftermath of a dream that singer Howard Felbusch had.

Speaking in a press release about the song’s inspiration:

“Right around the time my mother got remarried, I had a dream where I was in a store full of her clothing. It was a thrift store where all the clothes had been worn by her in her lifetime. I remembered tags on the floor and faded/ripped clothing… The beginning of the dream felt sad to me and then at some point it switched where I was a spectator at her wedding and I just remembered a rocking 70’s wedding band playing. I wanted the song to follow the different stages of the dream so I switched instrumentation for each section. Every verse was recorded with different drums and guitars to match the dreams nonlinear progression.”

What’s also dope is that the group recorded different drums and guitars for every verse, so as to mimic the dream which inspired the track. That is reflected in a very cool way, kind of like a story that intensifies the further you get into the plot.

Hear the first song from Howard’s forthcoming sophomore album below. Continue Reading

Monte Booker – “Drunk”

posted by Oscar October 16, 2017

“made this drunk at the airport lol”… Tell me how many can use this as their description and have the reader believe that whatever they made is actually pretty fire? Well, that’s what Monte Booker wrote as he posted his new song “Drunk” on SoundCloud and you better believe he’s the kind of guy that can say that and have you expect it to be dope.

The Zero Fatigue man is one of the best producers around, and his drunken work is evidence enough that he’s a mastermind no matter what is his state.

Check out/download “Drunk” below. Continue Reading

Phoelix – “Dirty630”

posted by Oscar October 16, 2017

Phoelix. Goes. Hard! Yo, if you’re reading this post, let me save you some time and implore that you just go straight down to the song and press play…

… Ok, now that you’ve done that and came back here, you know exactly why it was more important to hear “Dirty630” instead of reading my description! Phoelix is best known for these beautiful productions that boast an almost celestial vibe, but his new track is piercing with a beat that cuts into you slowly but assuredly, as Phoe drops bars reppin his native Fox Valley and speaking up for the 6-3-0. I just hope he’s got more like this one in his repertoire for us all to hear.

Logic Adds Juanes For Spanish Remix of “1-800-273-8255”

posted by Oscar October 13, 2017

Logic’s massively important suicide prevention song with Alessia Cara and Khalid, “1-800-273-8255” has received a Spanish remix, and they called upon Juanes to help them. The Colombian singer provides the hook and weaves in some lines within Logic’s parts.

While it’s not a full-on Spanish affair, it’s not any less relevant to have this version available and continue to raise awareness against suicide. Much love to Juanes for joining the cause, and of course to Logic, Alessia Cara, and Khalid for making a song like this in the first place.

Hear the Spanish remix for “1-800-273-8255” below. Continue Reading

St. Vincent Releases New Song “Pills” + Announces 2018 Tour

posted by Oscar October 10, 2017

Today we have received another offering from St. Vincent’s forthcoming album, Masseduction. The new song is entitled “Pills” and it premiered as the World Record on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show.

Annie Clark spoke to Lowe about the conception of track, and how she worked on it with Jack Antonoff (Bleachers; Fun.) while also recruiting Cara Delevingne and Jenny Lewis to offer some vocal parts and Kamasi Washington plays sax. The song has this sort of demented, upbeat vibe that rides along for the majority of its run, until just before the 3-minute mark where the desired effect of those pills some to kick in to close off the performance with a more serene feel.

Masseduction will be released on October 14 via Loma Vista Recordings. Hear “Pills” and find her newly-announced 2018 tour dates (with pre-sale info) below. Continue Reading
