(Indie Rock) New Single From Wolf Alice – Bros

20130502-132539.jpg

If you asked me what band you should be following this summer. I’d tell you Wolf Alice. I’ve been infatuated with these North Londoners ever since they erupted on to the scene with “Leaving You”. They’ve released only a handful of singles and each one is more infectious and different from the last.

Bros” shifts away from the energetic youthful romp of “Fluffy” and delivers a more tender sentimental tune filled with bright melodies, driving rhythms and a testament to a best friend.

What makes this band so damn cool is they don’t place themselves in a nice neat little musical category. Just look at the diversity  between each of their singles. They blend elements of electro, grunge and pop creating a sound that’s unmistakably theirs and undeniably good.

Their new single “Bros” is out May 2oth on Chess Club Records.

(Soul) New Single From ThunderCat – Heartbreaks + Setbacks

Thundercat Heartbreaks +Setbacks

Steven “ThunderCat” Bruner has been a member of the legendary thrash punk band Suicidal Tendencies a protégé of Steven Ellison (aka Flying Lotus), virtuoso bassist, composer, producer and singer. You can say that music flows through his veins, his father is an internationally renowned jazz drummer who played with the Temptations, Diana Ross, Gary Bartz and Gladys Knight. His brother Ronald Bruner, Jr., a Grammy-winning drummer has played with the likes of Roy Hargrove, Stanley Clarke, and Wayne Shorter.

His latest single Heartbreaks + Setbacks is and electro infused piece of Neo Soul that testifies to the complications of love.

“You know we tried way too hard to find A love that’s really blind so why even try? Because we know that there’s still hope Just don’t let go”

Culminating organic bass lines and heady melodies ThunderCat takes you into his personal space and let’s you experience the perfect understanding of what music was with the forward thinking mentality of what it will be. He’s part of a new mind-set of Jazz literate Hip-Hop instrumentalist or mutated Jazz cats (Thundercats) hell-bent on pushing boundaries and changing modern music. His new album Apocalypse is due out July 8th, I suggest you buy it.

“I do believe that hip-hop can be the new jazz, and I’m helping create that”
Steven Bruner

(Hip-Hop) New From Quasimoto – Planned Attack

20130430-153104.jpg

Madlibs diabolical alter ego Quasimoto is back with “Planned Attack” off his new album “Yessir Whatever” out June 18 (out digitally now). This album was made over a 12 year period and it brings together 12 tracks previously only released on now rare and out of print vinyl. For the dedicated audiophiles you might have already heard some of these. For those of you who are not avid vinyl junkies. It’s a chance to hear some rare cuts of Hip-Hop from the real deal.

Madlib is one of the most prolific and critically acclaimed Hip Hop producers of the 2000′s. He’s collaborated with a myriad of artists, including MF DOOM (as Madvillain), and the late J Dilla (as Jaylib). Madlib has described himself as a “DJ first, producer second, and MC last.

Quasimoto came about when Madlib decided to rap to his own beats. He didn’t like the sound of his voice so he decided to slow his recorder down, rap slow, then speed the recording back up to produce Quasimoto’s distinctive high pitched voice.

Peanut Butter Wolf DJ, Producer and founder of Stones Throw Records encouraged him to do more. Quasimoto made his first appearance in 1998 on Peanut Butter Wolf’s “My Vinyl Weighs A Ton” and Madlib put out Quasimoto’s debut album “The Unseen” in 2000. This album received so much attention from underground Hip-Hop heads and and mainstream media that it ended up making it onto Spin Magazine’s top albums of the year list.
