Youth Lagoon: "Cannons"
Sometimes I’ll be loving something and won’t post about it. Not because I don’t want you to know about it, come on you know me I’m not like that. It’s mainly cause I’m lazy. So for the last few weeks or so I’ve been listening to Youth Lagoon and his debut album The Year of Hibernation. Youth Lagoon is Trevor Powers, a kid from Idaho who makes beautiful...
disCOVER: Emil & Friends "You Can (Body Language...
One of my favourite tracks of last summer was Body Language’s smooth “You Can” so I’m kind of excited by the Emil & Friends cover. Now the Body Language original is pretty smooth, Emil and his friends have somehow managed to smooth it out just a little bit more until you’re sliding off grabbing onto the person closest to you- you’re welcome. Those who I...
Frank Ocean: "Golden Girl ft. Tyler the Creator"
Frank Ocean’s ChannelOrange is the gift that keeps on giving. Expecting to sell 100K in its first week, Ocean’s surprise early drop of his debut gave the internet nothing else to talk about. Not wanting to make the physical copy crowd feel let out, Ocean has saved a bonus track for the physical copy in the shape of “Golden Girl” featuring Odd Future’s Tyler the...
The Helio Sequence: "October"
The Helio Sequence’s ‘Hallelujah’ is hands down one of my most favouritest songs. So I’m pretty excited about their announcement of new single ‘October’ and album Negotiations through Sub Pop due September 11. Like ‘Hallelujah’, ‘October’ is big angelic vocals alongside dreamy ethereal soundscapes. Download ‘October’ by...
Big K.R.I.T.: "The Alarm"
So today I got to listening to Big K.R.I.T. I’ve been kind out of the loop with all the new kids coming up in hip hop recently but once I sit down and actually listen I find I like. I listened Big K.R.I.T.’s 4evaNaDay mixtape and I mightily enjoyed it. The beats were fresh and his flow is laid back catchy. Here’s “The Alarm”, the mixtapes closer. Big K.R.I.T.:...
Work Drugs: "Absolute Bearing"
ITYLTS faves Work Drugs have just released their second album Absolute Bearing and it is a doozy of a summer filled chillwave set. Alongside already released singles ‘License to Drive’, ‘Boogie Lights’, Absolute Bearing is a gorgeously written and produced album perfect for lazy days on the yacht, by the pool or in the office. Stream the album below and grab...
Tame Impala: "Apocalypse Dreams"

disCOVER: Theophilus London "Dance Hall Days (Wang...
Last week, Theophilus London dropped his latest mixtape Rose Island Vol. 1 and by far the highlight is TL’s cover of Wang Chung’s 80s classic “Dance Hall Days”. It’s faithful with two great TL verses putting his mark all over it. London is at his best over these type of 80s throwbacks, so please keep doing it. Download Rose Island Vol. 1 right here.
Passion Pit: "Constant Conversations"
Let’s slow it down a little for Passion Pit’s latest. Maybe dim the lights tad, I don’t know. “Constant Conversations” is one of those beautifully put together tracks that hides darker undertones. Borrowing from the slow smoothness of rnb with the Passion Pit samples and falsettos, “Constant Conversation” is another great taste for Gossamer. I...
The Killers: "Runaway"
You may not have realised it but there’s been a Killers shaped hole in your life for a few years now. It’s not something you necessarily realised you missed but you have. So another Happy Tuesday to you, not only have we been blessed with some Frank Ocean but also a brand new track “Runaway” from The Killers for their upcoming fourth studio album. It’sa big sing...
Yeasayer’s new LP Fragrant World is due August 21 and they’ve kindly given us another slice of what to expect. And as is expected from Yeasayer, “Longevity” is genre bendingly unexpected. I can’t even…just listen. Yeasayer- “Longevity” Pre-order Fragrant World here.
Frank Ocean: "Channel Orange" (Album Stream)
Here you go, Happy Tuesday here’s Frank Ocean’s debut LP Channel Orange. Stream it and then go and grab it.
Nas: "Bye Baby"
Nas’ latest album Life is Good is gaining a helluva lot of traction with “The Don” and “Daughters” before its release on July 17th. God’s son next one “Bye Baby” dropped today and it has that classic old school hip hop vibe that happens everytime when Nas collaborates with Saleem Rami. Nas spills his heart on “Bye Baby” all about the...
disCOVER: Rock Kill Kid "I Turn My Camera On...
So here’s another one from The O.C. (don’t worry, I’ve nearly finished the series). A delightfully melancholy cover of Spoon’s attitude heavy “I Turn My Camera On” by Rock Kill Kid. Still has that same driven beat and guitars, but the vocals add a different tone. It doesn’t do anything new but it does something quite good.
Mikey Mike: "Seven"
Been a big fan of Mikey Mike for a minute. Genius at making high energy but thought provoking songs, the guy has his fingers in so many pies in the background its a wonder that he even has time for his solo schtick- but thank god he does. “Seven” is another well produced jumper of a track this time dealing with the nostalgia that comes when things aren’t going to plan in the...
Childish Gambino: "Royalty Mixtape"
Happy July 4th everyone, Childish Gambino has dropped his new mixtape Royalty. After mixed responses to his debut full length LP Camp CG went back on his mixtape grind, brought some friends along and gave us Royalty- with Beck, Bun B, Schoolboy Q, Nipsy Hustle, RZA and even a Tina Fey feature…yup. Check out Royalty and download it if you want… Download it here.
Alex Evans: "Life in the Woods EP"
When things get all a little crazy and you can’t seem to figure out a way to stop sometimes all you need is to throw on some music to escape. Alex Evans is everything you need to come to your rescue. “Rushing Cars” from Life in the Woods is perfect for the escape and the rest of the EP lets you drift off and give yourself 15 minutes of you time as Mr. Evans beautiful voice,...
Kick Up The Fire: "Spiders"
There’s something irresistible about indie summer pop, am I right? Luckily Kick Up The Fire is supplying our need with “Spiders” from their upcoming Money Men EP due July 30. With catchy guitar riffs and singalong choruses, “Spiders” upbeat yet urgent stylings add depth to the pop indie summer track- appropriate as “Spiders” is about the Leveson...
