THURZ and Cali Martyr showed you can make a twerk friendly banger and still spit on this one, though I do prefer the dirty “God Damn” edit. The video dropped a while ago, but I’ve been sleeping on posting. Still one of my favorite tracks of the year and the visuals just add to the appeal.
One of my favorite new groups on the scene is London Grammar and here’s they’ve just released this video of their Kavinsky cover for “Nightcall.” Great stuff, though if we’re talking LG covers, I have to mention their epic take on Chris Isaak too:
One of my favorite tracks off the exceptional Rubber Souls album gets a fun, and fitting, video treatment. Be sure to let the track finish so you can hear the Shuggie Otis reference and flip at the end.
KEEP GOIN 6TH!
This new video from Milosh is one of the more enjoyable clips I’ve seen in recent memory. Yes, it’s a bit cheesy, but hell, I’m a bit cheesy and I appreciate this kind of stuff. For those not familiar, Milosh is a dope vocalist and you may have heard some of his stuff from the Rhye project he released with Robin Hannibal last year.
This video was created while Milosh and his wife traveled around the globe for the Rhye tour. I’ll let him expound:
This is a video that Alexa and myself put together that is essentially a collection of footage over this past year while we traveled the Rhye record around the world. We went to 40 separate places in a span of about 6 months and we got to see some beautiful places as a result. We tried to set aside time in between performances to see things, just take them in and enjoy ourselves. We chose to use this footage for this video as it fits the whole message, the point of the song perfectly. Enjoy the opportunities now while you have them, they are not always going to be there. Traveling is one of the most important, mind broadening things one can do, being able to do that together has been beyond a blessing.
While I don’t envy most aspects of the celebrity life, this would be one. Being able to travel the world and take in new sights/experience would be amazing, especially doing it all with your best friend.
Milosh’s new album, Jetlag, is out now.
Ye got jokes. Still my favorite song of the year though!
Kenna links up with Donald Glover for his new single and video, “Relations.” Funky.
Digging this one from an artist I’m starting to hear more and more buzz around. G4SHI is a Libyan born, Brooklyn resident, whose family is from Kosovo in Albania. Be on the lookout for more from him.
Jhene and Gambino’s “Bed Peace” video is essentially an homage to John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s classic photograph and their general “peace & love” mentality. Jhene’s vocals are nice and catchy, plus the overall message is one I definitely support and will try to remember with the ongoing battle between work and life. Good to hear a more serious Gambino verse too, which may or may not hold some factual connection to his recent friendship with Jhene, if you’re into that tabloid stuff.
Now if I can just convince the label to make a clean edit for the airwaves…
Some of that Young California for ya. Trackademicks on the beat.
First track I’ve really enjoyed from Drake’s OVO signing, PARTYNEXTDOOR. Definitely prefer when he rhymes in a more normal voice than that Future influenced warble, but I dig it. Visuals didn’t hurt either…
