Mr. Herbert Quain – How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Start Loving the Waiting EP

It isn’t easy to live up to a comparison to sampling legend DJ Shadow but so far Mr. Herbert Quain’s How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Start Loving the Waiting EP, which was described as “taking the same path already experienced by the likes of DJ Shadow or Nicolas Jaar” doesn’t disappoint.  Instead of capturing the beauty of a city at …

Video: Mister Lies – Dionysian

It’s been a pretty big year for Mister Lies.  After releasing his incredible track “Cleam” he has signed with Lefse Records and (rightfully so) begun to get a huge amount of attention.  Today he released the video for what is presumably the first single off of his upcoming album.  “Dionysian”, like “Cleam” is unique, emotive, and crafted with incredible care.  All of …

mp3: Dream Koala – Hipster Girl

Along with creating some of the most sonically rich and gorgeous tracks of this past year, Parisian producer Dream Koala can also sing, something that he only sometimes shows off.  On Blur cut ‘Hipster Girl’ Dream Koala demonstrates that he not only has an incredible talent for singing but also that his falsetto vocals fit perfectly into Dream Koala’s world of reverb, …

mp3: Katmai – Bicycle

Although Katmai hasn’t been giving out much more info yet, we do know that he (yeah we figured that one out… I think) isn’t planning on stopping the steady stream of awesome music coming our way.  ‘Bicycle’ is Katmai’s newest musical endeavor and it’s as much of a sonic journey as ‘Impossible Colors’ that continues to demonstrate the versatility and depth …

mp3: Lil Ugly Mane – )​)​)​____◎◎◎◎█████

Its been a while since I first suggested how dope Lil’ Ugly Mane is and got all too literally laughed at by some people whose names I won’t mention, and I’m happy to say he’s been making a name for himself lately, but for the sake of not sounding too butthurt or self-righteous I will dwell on that no longer …

mp3: Oab Jenkins – Danny Devito (prod. Eu-IV)

Unheralded modern philosopher and scholar Danny Devito isn’t your typical topic for a hip-hop track but thankfully Oab Jenkins and Eu-IV have teamed up to give the voice of our generation some proper appreciation.  ‘Danny Devito’ has Oab Jenkins romanticizing with girls and pulling out some well-spoken life advice over an jittering upbeat instrumental from Eu-IV.  Throughout the track snippets …

mp3: Christopher Owens – Lysandre’s Theme / Here We Go

Girls’ frontman Christopher Owens may have left the group (basically guaranteeing that we won’t be getting more Girls’ albums), however, that doesn’t mean that we won’t be hearing anymore of Owen’s perfectly sad and sappy music.  No one is better than Owens at making depressing and cliche sound so beautiful and ‘Lysandre’s Theme’ and ‘Here We Go’ demonstrate that Owens doesn’t plan …
