With everyones’ busy schedule of watching internet porn, counting down the last hours before Grand Theft Auto V is released, and eating way too much Taco Bell, scouring the internet for good new music can be time-consuming and a pain in the ass. To streamline this shit and make your troubled lives a little more enjoyable, we’ve taken it on ourselves to bring you this week’s dopest new (non-Kendrink Lamar) tracks floating around the web. You can thank us later!
The standout young-gun of the Golf Wang posse collaborated with everybody’s favorite bi-sexual artist to create this heart-felt, lo-fi track. Make sure not to sleep on this Earl kid, y’all. I’d bet that a delicious follow-up to Doris will drop later this year, and at least one verse from that shit will shatter twitter into even more pieces than Kendrick’s recent tirade.
2. Just SZA – Julia
Producers Felix Snow and David Free got this record jumping by painting the picture of driving down an empty highway with the top down; a perfect 6 a.m. dreamy soundtrack off of SZA’s upcoming EP, titled simply: Z.
3. Cults – I Can Hardly Make You Mine
This is the first single these guys have released from their upcoming sophomore album Static. Honestly, this track isn’t nearly as catchy as their breakout single, “Come Outside,” but it’s fuzzy-vintage production is promising for the rest of the record.
4. Black Milk – Perfected on Puritan Ave.
Veteran rapper and producer Black Milk showed off his first single off his newest project, No Poison No Paradise. Side effects of this track include feelings of nostalgia, longing and slight depression. Man, I remember bumping that Slum Village record he produced in 2001… 12 years ago. Oh God, I’m old.
5. Ginuwine‘s – Differences (DJ Hoodboi remix)
Hook, line and sinker! This is definitely my favorite Ginuwine remix since HeRobust did his thing with “Pony”.
New York native Sam Siegel released his newest punk/rap album via Soundcloud. The album is filled with genre-bending bangers, but this cut was by far my favorite. If you’re interested in hearing what the underground scene in the Upper East Side sounds like… listen to this.
7. Of Montreal – She Ain’t Speakin Now
This track is like a breath of fresh air. The psych-pop group out of Georgia will be dropping their new album, lousy with sylvianbriar, this October 8th via Polyvinyl. The entire album was apparently recorded in a home studio on old analog gear. If this track and their new video are any sign, lousy with sylvianbriar is going to be a fascinating experiment in sound.
8. Goldroom – St. Ides Heaven
Goldroom’s synth-pop cover of Elliot Smith’s somber acoustic track brings to life what Smith would probably be doing if he were still alive and rocking an MPC while on tour with Toro Y Moi.
9. Michelle Obama’s Hip Hop Health Album…
Michelle Obama has a hip hop album coming out. Enough said!
10. ASAP Ferg – Trap Lord
Here’s your chance to hear ASAP Ferg’s Trap Lord before it drops August 20th.
