Video: The Supermen Lovers - Starlight 2010
This video is awesome. Is Tim Burton doing videos for house music records these days?
The Knocks - Dancing With The DJ
I’m a sucker for records that refer to “the DJ”, especially when they’re incredibly cool party records like this one. The Knocks Dancing with the DJ
Cold War Kids - Louder Than Ever
Via RCRDLBL: It’s been a couple years since Long Beach, CA indie rockers Cold War Kids have released an album, but January 25, 2011 will see the release of their third studio album, Mine Is Yours (Downtown). The album was recorded and produced by Jacquire King, who has worked with Tom Waits, Kings Of Leon and Modest Mouse—the collaboration interweaves soulful energy throughout....

Dev ft. The Cataracs - Bass Down Low
You may know Dev as the female voice on the #1 single by Far East Movement “Like A G6”. Dev recently scored a deal of her own at Universal Republic and teamed up with the G6 production team, The Cataracs, for another really dope club and radio friendly banger “Bass Down Low”. Bass Down Low (Clean)

Video: T.I. - Ya Hear Me
I don’t think if we’ll be hearing much from Clifford for the next 11 months or so.
Ghostland Observatory - Give Me The Beat
As my roommate pointed out, this record has a bit of an “Another One Bites The Dust” vibe, with Aaron Behrens seemingly channeling Freddie Mercury. Although, I don’t remember Queen ever using what I’m pretty sure are radar blips in their records. Ghostland Observatory’s latest album, Codename: Rondo, dropped everywhere yesterday. I doubt it’s a tribute to...
Crystal Castles ft. Robert Smith - Not In Love
Via Pitchfork: There’s a very specific kind of romantic yearning that seemed to be in ready supply in the new wave music of the 1980s. Thinking of it now, it might manifest itself in John Hughes nostalgia, the shape of a haircut, the feelings associated with a certain synth texture. It resonates in a similar way whether you were there or got it second-hand. For a lot of people, the sound...
Katy B ft. Ms. Dynamite - Lights On
London’s Katy B has been an interent/euro club sensation for the last year and a half or so due to her tracks “Louder” and “Katy On A Mission”. This time around she teams up with fellow Londoner Ms. Dynamite, for “Lights On” which I’m sure will be blowing up from Europe the the U.S. very soon. Katy B ft Ms. Dynamite - Lights On

Kanye West ft. Mos Def, Lupe Fiasco & Big Sean -...
Yet another leak from Yeezy. Kanye West - Don’t Look Down (feat. Mos Def, Lupe Fiasco Big Sean)
Lykke Li - Get Some
Via The Fader: Lykke takes a turn towards Western noir on this one, perhaps inspired by her own excursions into the wild for heartbreak absolution. A few weeks ago she sent out the lyrics, handwritten, to her newsletter subscribers—like a shotgun needs an outcome/I’m your prostitute, you gon’ get some—and the sex-power dynamic was puzzling out of context. But she’s always played around with...
R.I.P. Gregory Isaacs
Reggae legend Gregory Isaacs passed away earlier this morning after a year long battle with lung cancer. Isaacs became in international superstar after the release of 1982’s “Night Nurse”, but is also well known for classic reggae ballads such as “All I Have Is Love” and “Love is Overdue”.

You know he had to do a remix right? Take that, take that. Bad Boy, uh huh. Loving-you-no-more-remix-feat-busta-rhymes-drake
Wallpaper - Indian Summer
Seeing as how the weather never really changes in the Bay Area, I’m wondering what exactly Wallpaper knows about an Indian Summer. Either way, they put out a nice little record that reflects everybody’s favorite seasonal apperation. Wallpaper - Indian Summer
Video: Rihanna - Who's That Chick
Really dope concept for a video. This track is supposedly the lead single off of David Guetta’s upcoming One More Love album (dropping Nov. 29th).

Two Door Cinema Club - Eat That Up, It's Good For...
I stumbled upon Ireland natives Two Door Cinema Club while perusing some of the shows coming up this week for CMJ. (They’re at Webster Hall tomorrow) “Eat That Up, It’s Good For You” is a track off their debut album Tourist History and kind of has me believing that the band is Ireland’s answer to MGMT, Cut Copy or Phoenix, which works for me. 09 Eat That up,...
Video: Massive Attack – Atlas Air
As with anything Massive Attack does, this post is definitely going to up my “hits by hipsters” quotient. The track is off the band’s Atlas Air EP which is due out next month.

I’ve felt for the last couple of months that this track was missing something. Cali’s DJ Bling fixed that problem with this bootleg. Deadmau5 & Wolfgang Gartner - Animal Rights (DJ Bling Rock The Funky Beats Bootleg) by Brian Gaffey
Cee-Lo - Old Fashioned
Cee-Lo goes vintage gospel for next single and I’m not complaining. Is there an artist alive that makes more diverse music than Cee-Lo? Cee-Lo-Old-Fashioned
Video: Warpaint - Undertow
First video off the LA based, all girl quartet’s debut album THE FOOL (in stores Oct. 25th).
T.I. ft. Chris Brown – Get Back Up
I guess this is the “I f’d up again and I’m sorry…again” track before Tip heads back to lock up for the next 11 months. T.I. ft. Chris Brown - Get Back Up

Reek Da Villian – Mechanics Remix Ft. Busta...
I mean, if you gonna sample Jerry Butler’s “Mechanical Man”, you have to have Meth on the remix right? Well, Meth and every other rapper you can think of. And who better to be on a track with 67 different rappers than the king of the family rap track, DJ Khaled. Meth kinda kills it by the way. Reek Da Villian - Mechanics (Remix)
A-Trak ft. CyHi Da Prynce - Ray Ban Vision
I’m not sure if CyHi’s Ray Ban vision is better than the vision I get from my $5 Canal St. bootleg joints. It’s doubtful. What’s not doubtful, is G.O.O.D. music’s new signee being able to spit bars chock full of punchlines over a straight headnodding A-Trak beat. Check for this on A-Trak’s upcoming Fool’s Gold Vol. 1 out Oct. 25th. A-Trak - Ray...
Video: Rick Ross ft. Chrisette Michele & Drake –...
Officer Ricky’s latest video off of what was probably, in my humble opinion, the best “rap” album of the year.

Title track off of Brooklyn’s own Treasure Fingers’s EP released a couple week’s ago on Defected. Treasure-fingers-lift-me-original-mix
Video: Laidback Luke Live DJ Set
In case you want to geek out of an hour and watch how Laidback Luke freaks a live electro/house set, DJ Sounds just released this video series the other day. And now I know why house DJs prefer CDJs.

Nice to see rappers actually coming together to put out some good (pardon the pun) commercial hip hop music, with lyrics you actually want to pay attention to. Lloyd Banks feat. Kanye West, Swizz Beatz, Ryan Leslie & Fabolous - Start It Up
Video: Lissie - Everywhere I Go
I truly was not expecting an elephant to be in this video. However, it is now my opinion that elephants should somehow be worked into every video from now on. I need to see Cam and Jimmy being stalked by an elephant as they drive through Harlem in the next Dipset video.
Gorillaz ft. Daley - Doncamatic (All Played Out)
So this upcoming single release seems to have come out of nowhere. They did just drop an album earlier this summer. Anyway, it’s an alright track featuring newcomer Daley. It’s a little boring upon first listen, but i’m sure it’ll grow on me. By the way, I hate waiting for actual mp3s to leak so that’s why the YouTube is posted for now. Look for it on itunes...
N.E.R.D. - Hypnotize U (Prod. By Daft Punk)
Obviously my expectations were through the roof when I saw this combo. But it kinda sounds like N.E.R.D. trying to copy something Prince would’ve done when he was going by that weird ass symbol. Except it’s not as good and really doesn’t go anywhere. Actually, I was bored with it after a minute. N.E.R.D. - Hypnotize U

Drake - I Get Lonely Too
New leak off Drake’s forthcoming R&B mixtape were I’m sure “Sensative Drizzy” makes more than a few appearances. Tyga hand me a tissue, Weezy stop teasing. Drake - I Get Lonely Too
Rye Rye ft. M.I.A. - Sunshine
Really fun lead single off 19 year old, Baltimore native Rye Rye’s debut album Go! Pop! Bang! due out in January. Sunshine - Rye Rye feat. M.I.A.
Video: Major Lazer - Percumajor
I’m not the biggest fan of Diplo and Switch’s take on this club classic, so I didn’t post up the mp3 when it dropped a few weeks ago. The video, however, is pure entertaining animated randomness.
Chiddy Bang ft. Q-Tip - Here We Go
New leak off Chiddy Bang’s EP The Preview which drops Oct. 12th. I’m almost positive that it’s going to be great based on the previous leaks of “Old Ways” and “All Things Go”. It’s interesting to see Philly-based hip hop take this kind of direction so often lately. Do they even make street rap in Philly anymore? Chiddy Bang-Here We Go
Chris Brown feat. Drake, T.I., Kanye West,...
So let me get this straight, Andre takes a year off and randomly pops up on this of all remixes? I’m confused. Chris Brown feat. Deuces (Remix) (feat. Drake, T.I., Kanye West, Fabolous & Andre 300)
Kanye West - Lost In The World
This dropped Wednesday and for some reason it slipped my mind to post it. No G.O.O.D. Friday today according to ‘Ye so I guess it’s only fitting that I posted it today anyway. By the way, Bon Iver and Gil Scott Heron samples are always welcome in my music world. Kanye West - Lost In The World
