JD Samson & Men – “All The Way Thru”

JD Samson & Men

JD Samson & Men

I was introduced to the LP Talk About Body released in 2011 by JD Samson & Men by a friend recently and I wish I had found it sooner. I was a fan of Le Tigre back in the day, but I wasn’t very good at keeping up with what was going on Kathleen Hanna and the other band members. I was missing out! Check out this new single. Looking forward to the new release, Labor, coming out October 22, 2013!

Son Lux – “Lost It To Trying”

Son Lux

Son Lux

This noisy, but very well produced song sounds very epic. This is my first time hearing of Son Lux and I’m curious to hear the new LP release coming out October 29, 2013.

Keep Shelly in Athens – “Flyway”

Keep Shelly in Athens

Keep Shelly in Athens

I love this duo from Athens, Greece. They also happen to be on my favorite label, Cascine. This new track from their upcoming LP is totally badass. I’m so excited about the new release.

They’re touring this fall with the awesome Chad Valley, but it’s such a damn bummer they’re not coming to Atlanta. See tour dates below.

Janelle Monáe featuring Solange – “Electric Lady”

Janelle Monae and Solange

Janelle Monae and Solange

There’s a good reason Janelle is getting all the exposure she’s getting. She is one of the best things that has ever happened to music (not just R&B). I freakin’ love her. And then she goes and collaborates with my the another brilliant artist, Solange. What do you get? Pure perfection.

Stream the new single here and pre-order the upcoming LP.

Cults – “High Road”

Cults

Hell to the yes. I’ve been waiting for something from them since their last LP in 2011. They released the first single for their upcoming LP less than a month ago, but I decided not to feature it on the site. It’s not a bad song, I just wasn’t that excited about it… But I love this new single!

Postiljonen – “When All The Wild Things Die”

Postiljonen

I can not put into words how much I love Postiljonen and their music. Here is a new track they just released from their Facebook page, When All The Wild Things Die. It is one of their first songs they made as a band and it isn’t on their brilliant LP that was released a few months ago. Very impressive. This band is heaven sent.

Some Minor Noise – “Coffers”

some minor noise

Here is some new music from a poppy electronic band from Toronto Some Minor Noise. They released 4 new songs worth checking out on their Soundcloud page.

Here are a couple of more songs released recently:

Captain Murphy feat. Viktor Vaughn, Earl Sweatshirt & Thundercat – “Between Villains”

Captain Murphy feat. Viktor Vaughn, Earl Sweatshirt & Thundercat – “Between Villains”

I’m a big fan of the Ghostly Singles, Adult Swim always seem to have superb taste in music. Captain Murphy is also one of my favorite rappers and even more so when I learned it was really Flying Lotus behind it all. Listen to the dark track below released by Ghostly Singles. It’s available to download for free here.
