Stream: Yellow Ostrich- The Mistress

A while back Yellow Ostrich impressed us with his highly educational Morgan Freeman EP, which was a fun electro-pop EP.  With his proper full-length The Mistress Yellow Ostrich has stripped down his instrumentation significantly, most songs consisting mainly of just his looped and repetitious vocal melodies.  This album reminds me a lot of Idiot Glee and even Jon Lemmon (does …

Seeing Suge – Breaking (Single)

A little while back I posted the track “Breaking” by the collaborative project between Canadian rapper/producer EmAy, British producer Starslinger, and chill-wave artist Blackbird Blackbird.  Here is the four-track single that the song is featured on.  Other than “Breaking” the single contains one unreleased solo track from each artist.  All of the songs are great, but I would highly suggest …

Pusha T – Arm Piece (Feat. Pharrell)

I always feel bad about posting unfinished tracks, but this is Pharrell and 1/2 of the Clipse, so I couldn’t help myself.  The track is pretty stripped down, but that is probably because its unfinished.  Regardless, the punchy, bounce-influenced track is still great.  Pharrell provides one of his falsetto hooks which he seems so fond of lately, and Pusha T’s …

Outlines – Visions (RZA Remix)

Ok, now this is what I expected of Wu Wednesdays.  “Gone” was a little disappointing, but this is quite the opposite.  RZA gives Parisian band Outlines a verse about a perfect world and some help on the keys.  He even samples the drums from the Wu-Tang classic he produced way back in ’93, “Ain’t Nothin’ Ta Fuck Wit” off of …

Theophilus London – Life of a Lover (Unreleased Blu Verse)

“Life of a Lover” was originally released on resident ultra-hipster rapper Theophilus London’s mixtape, I Want You, earlier this year without this verse from Blu.  To be honest I have no idea why his verse was cut out.  Blu is an amazing lyricist and puts together a great verse over the smooth horn-driven beat.  Oh well, “Life of a Lover” …

Daytrotter Session: Cults – Oh My God

Daytrotter has already brought us great music from Toro Y Moi, Local Natives, and Real Estate, this time its Cults’ turn.  Cults play a new, live rendition of their song “Oh My God” which they originally recorded for adultswim.  Surprisingly, the Daytrotter recording sounds higher quality than the original, and sounds all in all like a better performance from the …
