Stream: The Radio Dept.- Never Follow Suit (EP)

The Radio Dept.’s Clinging To A Scheme was an addictive and sweet album filled with dreamy/shoegaze pop-songs that were easy to love.  Heavens On Fire in particular has been played nearly countless times on my computer and is probably the best example of their sound.  Never Follow Suit is the latest release from the swedish band and it finds them …

Gil Scott-Heron – NY is Killing Me (Jamie xx Remix)

When I saw this I was all like THIS and then when I heard it I was all like THIS.  Jamie xx has been churning out some crazy remixes over the past few months and Gil-Scott Heron has been churning out some crazy poetry for the past 40 years.  I already thought Jamie xx was amazing, but this remix has …

In Case You Missed It: A Tribe Called Quest

Hip-hop has changed a lot in the past 20 years.  The music being made today by acts such as Kanye West, Odd Future and Lil’ Wayne sounds completely different than the hip-hop from the late 80s and 90s.  In the early 90s hip-hop was still establishing itself as a real genre that deserved the same respect and attention that rock …

Download: Atlas Sound- Bedroom Databank Vol. 1,2,3 & 4

Bradford Cox is easily one of the most interesting musical figures making music today.  Under the names of Deerhunter and Atlas Sound, Cox has been creating amazing music influenced by everything from Animal Collective to punk-rock.  Most interesting is Cox’s personal story as he spent many years of his childhood in and out of hospitals suffering from the genetic Marfan …
