Shad – Progress (Part 1: American Pie, Part 2: The Future is Here) (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on September 20th, 2014 by Hyphen

These are the kinds of songs that simply put Shad on a level that few other artists can touch.  Truly next level in his message and his delivery.  Wow.

Words from the director, Justin Broadbent:

“The death of music is similar to the death of visual art. The online, numb, browsing experience has (naturally) started to effect the current state of art. We’ve become a Tumblr’d culture, over Googled, educated and bored in 4 seconds or shorter.

“I made a non-music video for Shad’s “Progress”. It’s a website. It’s a comment on the state of art and also maybe the only video that could attach to such an intensely accurate and poignant song for our generation. It is like the movie credits to now. Tumblr on.”

Sound Session #482 (9-7-14)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on September 10th, 2014 by Hyphen

SNSS

On this week’s SNSS, we gave world premieres to two dope records: Sam Lachow’s “Action Figures (Remix)” with Sol and Mario Sweet, plus a cut off the upcoming NehruvianDOOM project from Bishop Nehru and MF Doom.  Be sure to peep those, along with the block of music from Flying Lotus to Prince, which might have been my favorite string of records we’ve played in quite some time.  None of them are rap records, but that alt/indie/pseudo-R&B or dance is killing everything else right now, especially when it comes from the UK.  Don’t sleep.

Enjoy the show!

Sinead Harnett – No Other Way (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on September 7th, 2014 by Hyphen

UK R&B is killing ours right now.  Here’s a new one from Sinead Harnett, who you may have heard on Disclosure’s album, produced by Snakehips, who are murking everything they touch right now.  Fire.

Jhene Aiko – The Pressure (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on September 6th, 2014 by Hyphen

Souled Out drops Tuesday and I’m really interested to see how it performs.  I’d love to see an artist like Jhene breakthrough on the mainstream level and with the success of “The Worst,” a lot of folks are checking for her right now.  This album will likely determine if she can get up to that star level, but either way, the music continues to be dope…and that’s the most important thing.

Mac Miller – Diablo (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on September 6th, 2014 by Hyphen

I mentioned this on Twitter when Mac Miller’s last mixtape, Faces, dropped, but I’m kinda worried for dude.  He’s really talented (people sleep on the production skills too), but he seems to be in a pretty dark place.  You can’t go more than a few bars on the tape without hearing a drug reference and while he’s always been on that vibe, it seems excessive…and dangerous…lately.

That said, the music is still quality, as evidenced by “Diablo.”  Truthfully, I’m all in on any beat that samples “In A Sentimental Mood,” but Mac’s rhymes are on point here too.  This one line seems to sum up what may have brought Mac to this dark place though: “the industry a lie, all the promises were hollow.”
