Lana Del Rey: "Blue Jeans (Live at Premises)"
If you’ve exhausted Video Games, here’s another one from Lana Del Rey Blue Jeans. Can’t deny that voice and that style.
Yeasayer: "Madder Red"
Have to love a bit of Yeasayer don’t you. Here’s Madder Red (if you haven’t seen the video, I guess watch it. It has Veronica Mars in it, but it is a bit weird…so yeah. *cool story bro*) Madder Red by We Are Free Madder Red is from Odd Blood.

This is what we liked in October…after the jump (including Bon Iver, Hoodie Allen, The Weeknd, Florence + The Machine, Summer Camp, Phantogram, Coldplay, Emeli Sande, Foster The People, Childish Gambino, Frightened Rabbit, The xx, Lana Del Rey…) G3RST- “Stand By Last Friday Night (Katy Perry vs Ben E. King)” Icarus Himself (New album Career Culture out now) ...
Ellie Lawson: "Change The Way"
Getting sent a lot of music submissions is par for the whole writing about music course. Sometimes its bad, sometimes its okay and then some of the time you get something that you really like, step in Ellie Lawson. Change The Way is stupidly sweet, fun and showcases what this girl can do. If you like Regina Spektor, Feist, Lena or any of those then Lawson will settle in your ears quite nicely. ...
Amy Winehouse "Like Smoke ft. Nas"
She may be gone, but Amy will be gracing us with some more wonderful music this christmas with Amy Winehouse Lioness: Hidden Treasures. Its not meant to be a follow up to Back to Black but instead a collection of recordings from the very beginning, to the very end. Put together by Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi, it gives the sense that is not something cynical but something that will truly keep...
Childish Gambino: "Heartbeat"
Camp is out November 15 and another track from it just dropped, Heartbeat. It starts off being like Drake, drops into some dirty dance, kicks into some more drake ish and then just turns into a dirty dance hop track. Niceness.

Remix Baby: The xx "Intro (Kenny Burke Edit)"
Ever wanted The xx’s Intro to last a little longer? Everytime you listen to it. Well here’s a remix by Kenny Burke, who’s done that and also added some synths, arpeggios and really made it possibly as amazing. The original is untouchable…this is almost there. The XX - Intro (Kenny Burke Edit) by Kenny Burke
disCOVER: The Antlers "VCR (The xx Cover)"
Two of my favourite things in one, bonus. Here’s The Antlers covering The xx’s VCR. The Antlers manage to make it their own and if this were properly mixed it wouldn’t have sounded out of place on Hospice. (Go over to Stereogum and check out a list of the 10 best xx covers)
VIDEO: Justin Bieber "Otis Freestyle"
I was prepared to be like, pffft kid needs to step down, but I’m going to give JB a little more time on the rap shelf. No he’s not up there with the real talent but he’s just as good as other singers who try to put it down (C Breezy…) And whether or not it was off the top, or scripted (which I think the first part was) he didn’t make a fool of himself. Go ahead,...
disCOVER: Holmes "It Was A Good Day (Ice Cube...
Ever think I would love to hear how Ice Cube’s hood classic It Was A Good Day would be like if you mixed it with Jason Mraz? Sitting on the edge of your seat aren’t you, well wait no further here is LA based Holmes’ delivering a great cover of Ice Cube’s ode to the perfect 24. It’s not just a straight cover, Holmes’ has given careful thought to musical...
VIDEO: Big Sean "Dance (A$$) Remix ft. Nicki...
People need to stop letting Nicki Minaj guest on their tracks cause she just KILLS it on everything and blows ‘em out the water. Here’s the video for Big Sean’s Dance (A$$), sampling some U Can’t Touch Dis for good measure. Big Sean: Website…Facebook…Twitter…Buy
VIDEO: Foster The People "Call It What You Want"
Check out the new video for Foster The People’s Call It What You Want where it crams in every idea that anybody’s ever had into one video. It’s not one of my favourite tracks of the album, but its still pretty damn good, and man I do love these guys a helluva lot.
The Bullitts: "Run and Hide feat. Jay Electronica"
I’m on a Jay Electronica vibe this morning, if you don’t know about this guys listen to Jay Electronica- The Pledge. Possibly one of the most exciting things in hip hop, he’s just signed to Roc Nation, so expect big things. But anyway this is a post about The Bullitts, fronted by Jeymes Samuel, exciting new indie band that has Idris Elba, Jay Electronica and Lucy Liu scrambling...
Remix Baby: Kanye West, Rick Ross, Jay-Z, Nicki...
Hope everyone had an awesome halloween weekend, know I did. My music feed has been filled up with lots of scary themed tracks this past week and I found this bitchin’ remix. Love this ‘ye track already, and now its hyped up to the max. Rock this out at your next big night and watch people go crazy. Kanye West, Rick Ross, Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj & Bon Iver “Monster (Another...
Rosi Golan: "Seeing Ghosts (Live)"
Singer/songwriter Rosi Golan has a piercingly sweet voice and the writing chops to back it up. Seeing Ghosts is a beautifully sweet song that perfectly showcases Golan over an acoustic guitar. Rosi Golan: Website…Facebook…Twitter…Youtube…Buy
The Do: "Bohemian Dances"
French/Finnish duo, The Do, are big stars in France, becoming the first French act, singing in French, to hit the top of the charts…ever, so nbd. Their third album Both Ways Open Jaw is a great little album full of quirky tracks that sound fresh. Bohemian Dances is a sweet magical track that will get into your head. The Do “Bohemian Dances” The Do:...

“Clap yours hands now, People clap your hands” Here is the new video for the amazing James Franco from Hoodie Allen’s latest mixtape Leap Year. They hit the west coast for the video and rolled through venice beach with the one and only James Franco (disclaimer its not really James Franco). Now say it with me now FRANCO!

Beirut: "Santa Fe"
Loving what’s coming from Beirut this year, the irresistible East Harlem and now Santa Fe. These guys have such a rich and influenced sound, every song is a treat for the ears. Santa Fe is taken from the album The Rip Tide. Beirut - Santa Fe by Revolver USA Beirut: Website…Facebook…Shop
